Rejuvenating Facelift Stockton

Getting older – it happens to the best of us. While individuals don’t want to trade the moments and the memories they’ve created over the years, many people wish they could take a few of the years their appearance. Some patients find themselves using creams and gels from the drug store or makeup counters and wishing they gave better results, others turn to procedures such as chemical peels and dermal fillers to fix problem spots on the face. While still other patients want an overall, younger appearance.

When this is the case, patients in Stockton, CA, often turn to Dr. Gerald Bock of California Skin & Laser Center for help in rejuvenating their appearance. Dr. Bock is not only a board-certified dermatologist; he’s experienced, has extensive training, and believes in working with patients to help them achieve a better appearance – not a different appearance.

For patients who want results that will last, a facelift may be the answer. Dr. Bock offers two types of facelifts – the MACS-Lift and the temporal brow lift. The MACS-Lift offers the same results of a traditional facelift with fewer incisions, less cost, and less downtime. This procedure can help patients look exactly like themselves, only 10 years younger.

For patients who feel that their eyebrows are beginning to droop, giving them an older and hooded appearance around the eyes, the temporal brow lift may be the answer. This procedure lifts the brows and helps to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet without scarring.

Is a facelift the right answer for you?

The answer largely depends on your medical history, lifestyle, budget, and timeline. If you’ve considered a facelift or other cosmetic dermatology or surgery procedures, call Dr. Gerald Bock to schedule a consultation. Dr. Bock will take the time to talk to you about what you perceive your imperfections to be, what results you hope to achieve, and which procedures might be right for you. With the expertise of Dr. Bock and the team at California Skin & Laser Center, you can be sure that you will get the care you deserve and the results you desire.
