Dr. Gerald N. Bock of California Skin and Laser Center has three convenient office locations in the areas of Lodi, Stockton, and Elk Grove, California to assist patients with addressing the unwanted signs of aging. His practice has a wide range of hyaluronic acid injectables available, and this now includes integration of the RHA Collection of dermal fillers.
What is the RHA Collection of dermal fillers?
In the past, dynamic wrinkles and folds were only treatable with medications such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by muscle contractions, including crow’s feet, forehead folds, and glabellar lines between the eyebrows. Injectables such as Botox reduced muscle contraction to smooth the area and provide a more youthful appearance, reducing and sometimes eliminating imperfections on the upper third of the face.
But now, patients have another option to consider, including the RHA Collection of dermal fillers. The RHA Collection of dermal fillers provided by exclusive practices such as California Skin and Laser Center help patients achieve treatment of dynamic wrinkles and folds without neurotoxin injections. Instead, these fillers are used to smooth away dynamic wrinkles and folds in another way, ensuring noticeable results without stiffness or unnatural movement of the face. In fact, the RHA Collection is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for use in dynamic wrinkles and folds, making it an exclusive and proprietary treatment for those seeking anti-aging benefits without surgery.
How is the RHA Collection different from traditional hyaluronic acid fillers?
Patients may be well aware of the benefits of the hyaluronic acid injectable used to address fine lines and wrinkles on the face. But in areas where dynamic wrinkles have formed, these injectables were not as effective as neuromodulators. With continued research, patients can now use a resilient hyaluronic acid filler that has been approved for treating these unique areas without stiffness. This wrinkle filler can also be used alongside other dermal fillers around the face to ensure the most noticeable and long-lasting results achieved.
Why choose fillers over surgery?
While plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts are still appropriate for patients with severe skin laxity and wrinkle formation, those with mild to moderate imperfections may find that hyaluronic acid injectables are effective at achieving results without surgical intervention. Plastic surgery is often expensive, leaves behind scars, and can increase one’s risk of complications including infection. In many cases, patients can avoid this treatment and instead use simple injectables to achieve the changes they desire. Fillers are also done in just a few minutes right in the practice. Without downtime and recovery, patients can achieve a youthful look and avoid taking time off of work, school, and social activities as they would with a traditional surgery. We also offer laser treatments, peels and surgery for patients who may not find the results they desire with cosmetic injectables available at California Skin and Laser Center.
What can I expect from my RHA Collection of dermal fillers treatment?
First, patients of the Lodi, Stockton, and Elk Grove, California will want to undergo an initial assessment with Dr. Gerald N. Bock to determine if they are a good fit for injectables such as this. This assessment includes an evaluation of the skin and discussion of the goals the patient would like to achieve. If the RHA Collection of dermal fillers is deemed appropriate for their needs, the patient will have their injections administered during the same appointment. Patients relax in the treatment chair as the doctor targets the specific dynamic wrinkles of concern, and injects the hyaluronic filler where it is needed. His expertise and experience ensures natural results and the safe treatment patients would expect from our providers.
How long does the RHA Collection of dermal fillers last?
Because there are several fillers available in this collection, the longevity of each one varies. Most patients can enjoy results for several months before they need to revisit California Skin and Laser Center for touch-up injections. Patients who take great care to attend their routine visits will be able to enjoy their results without changes in-between visits that become noticeable. We want our patients to know that we provide results that look natural and ensure the look patients desire for themselves. Patients also love how affordable these injections are, especially when compared with more invasive procedures such as facelifts.
