It is not uncommon for patients in the Stockton, CA area to ask a dermatologist who does facelift services with non-invasive methods such as injectables. Injectables are a wonderful way to address aging skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face can make many patients feel self-conscious about the way they look to the point where they are ready to take action. However, many men and women want to stay away from invasive plastic surgery. At the California Skin and Laser Center, we offer three types of injectables which can provide amazing results including neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and collagen stimulators.
Dr. Gerald Bock provides a steady, gentle hand to administer special neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport. These medications are known for providing amazing results when it comes to dealing with wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. These are administered directly into the facial muscles and over the course of several days, the depth and overall appearance of these concerns will smooth away.
Dermal fillers are extremely popular solutions for the signs of aging. Unlike neuromodulators which address the muscles, dermal fillers are injected directly into the fine lines, folds, hollows and wrinkles to add volume. These are often made with hyaluronic acid in a gel format which immediately reduces the depth of the fine lines and wrinkles of concern. Some of the most popular fillers used in the practice of the California Skin and Laser Center are Restylane, Radiesse, Perlane, Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma.
Long-term results can be achieved by using collagen stimulators which help boost the amount of natural collagen in the skin and provide many months—sometimes even years—of improved skin texture. Sculptra is the primary collagen stimulator used in Dr. Gerald Bock’s practice and is fabricated from poly-L-lactic acid. Other fillers such as Radiesse and, to a lesser degree, the hyaluronic acid fillers also act to stimulate collagen production.
Surgical face lifts are not always necessary for patients with premature signs of aging, and injectable can be used for optimum results in slowing this transformation. If you are a patient who resides in the Stockton, CA area and are seeking a board certified dermatologist to assist with non-invasive anti-aging solutions such as dermal fillers, neuromodulators, and collagen stimulators, contact the California Skin and Laser Center.
