Your face is like your business card: it’s who you are, impressionable, and one of the most noticeable parts of your body. To feel good in your own skin you want it to look as beautiful and healthy as possible.
As you age, your skin loses volume, elasticity, and collagen, resulting in the visible effects of lines, wrinkles, folds, crow’s feet, age and sun spots, sagging skin, and other conditions such as dry skin and rosacea.
External factors such as sun exposure, environmental pollution, smoking, and diet, also cause unwanted changes in your skin, such as uneven texture, dullness, or red and blotchy spots. Hormonal changes and genetics can also contribute to skin problems.
Although aging is inevitable and it is expected that your skin will change over time, there are things that you can do to preserve your healthy, youthful appearance and restore the health of your skin. Facial rejuvenation treatments such as BOTOX® injections and chemical peels can remove years from your appearance and help you feel good again in your own skin.
Wrinkles are caused when your facial muscles contract, causing repetitive expression lines. These fine lines appear slowly over time and become more pronounced as you age. To help reduce these lines and creases, Dr. Sherry Li offers BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, one of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures available.
Botox® injections contain botulinum toxin, which is injected to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and creases in the forehead and between the eyes. BOTOX works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause the appearance of these frown lines and crow's feet.
With BOTOX there is no downtime and the procedure only takes a few minutes. You can easily go back to your normal routine immediately following your treatment. Most patients see results within a few days, giving you a wrinkle-free, smooth, and youthful glow for 3-4 months.
At Dr. Li Wellness, our chemical peel treatments are designed for patients with facial blemishes, sun spots, fine lines, freckles, acne scarring, uneven skin pigmentation, rough and dull skin texture, and wrinkles.
Chemical peels use a variety of solutions such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and resorcinol to remove dead and damaged skin cells in the outermost layers of the skin. These solutions come in mild to medium strengths to address different skin problems.
Chemical peels promote the growth of a new, healthy top layer of skin and improve skin problems like hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, uneven texture, and skin impurities. This in-depth exfoliation and resurfacing treatment reveal a healthier, smoother, firmer, glowing, and more youthful complexion.
While chemical peels are usually performed on the face, some patients request treatment on other areas of the body, such as hands or neck.
Dr. Li performs this facial rejuvenation procedure in the comfort of her office. It typically takes no longer than 30 minutes, and recovery times will vary based on the type and strength of the peel you receive. You should expect your skin to appear red and flaky as it heals. During this time, your skin is much more sensitive to sunlight, which is why you should avoid sun exposure until your skin is fully healed. We recommend you use a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen to enhance the healing process and results.
