When you look in the mirror, are you faced with the realization that your once youthful face is now showing the signs of aging with fine lines and wrinkles? Dermal Fillers are an effective way to restore youth to the face. They restore volume to treated areas of the skin, decreasing the appearance of lines and folds. If you want to turn back the hands of time, Dr. Bock is a skilled dermatologist who has been administering dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation to the patients of Stockton, CA for many years.
When most patients hear the term, “cosmetic injectables” they think Botox. Without question, it is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport differ from dermal fillers because they work by blocking the nerve signals responsible for causing muscle contractions. Over time, those repeated muscle contractions like frowning, smiling, or furrowing your brow can leave wrinkles and deep folds on the face, making you look like tired, older, and even unhappy. Neuromodulators allow these areas to relax and make the skin appear smoother.
Dermal Fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, or Perlane are all formulated with hyaluronic acid, an amino acid that can also be found naturally in the body. The gel-like injectables work to restore volume in the face, filling in lines and leaving a smoother, suppler appearance. Dermal fillers are extremely versatile and can also be used to soften creases in the face, make lips appear fuller, and even reduce the visible appearance of scars. Fillers are used for both static and dynamic lines. However their primary use now is volume replacement and they are used in all areas of the face, NOT primarily in the lower face. Probably the most common use of fillers today is for replacement of midface volume loss, but they are also used to fill in hollows in the temples, to fill in the hollow areas in front of the ears and to re-create a strong youthful jawline and chin.
As with all anti-aging treatments, we work with you to customize a plan based on your individual wants and needs. Dr. Bock and his team take the time to discuss with you your anticipated results before recommending dermal fillers or any other anti-aging procedures.
