Facelift surgery is readily available at the California Skin and Laser Center in Stockton, as well as other options for patients with mild to moderate signs of aging.

Dr. Gerald Bock is a dermatologist in the Stockton area who consults with patients every day who want to improve the health and appearance of their skin and body. He knows that the signs of aging, including skin laxity, may take a toll on one’s appearance. It can make patients look tired and years beyond their age because of the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. The team of the California Skin and Laser Center work closely with men and women who are interested in turning back the hands of time with procedures such as facelift surgery.

Patients in the Stockton area visit with Dr. Gerald Bock and his team because they know he offers quality, comprehensive services for new and existing patients in his state-of-the-art practice. He works closely with individuals to help them improve their appearance and feel more confident with how they look. For some patients, this is achieved with facelift surgery. Facelift surgery is often done in a discreet manner with minimal invasiveness. However, it is still surgery and all the standard risks apply. Our practice takes all precautions to ensure safety and offers a variety of alternatives to the traditional facelift for patients who want a less invasive option.

Facelift alternatives often include the use of cosmetic injectables. Cosmetic injectables include neuromodulators such as Botox® and Dysport™, which are used to reduce muscle tension and smooth the skin. They are injected directly into the muscles of the face and they can improve the skin for approximately nine months. Additionally, patients also have the option of dermal fillers, which can add volume to areas where volume loss has occurred, including the cheeks. By injecting directly into fine lines and wrinkles, they can be significantly reduced in just one appointment. Reinjections are necessary to maintain the results and to slow the overall signs of aging.

If you live in or around the area of Stockton and are interested in learning more about the benefits of injections or traditional facelift surgery, contact the team of the California Skin and Laser Center today to book a consultation visit with Dr. Gerald Bock.
