No one wishes to look older as we age. But often a surgical procedure is not the appropriate intervention to slow the process of aging. Non-surgical procedures that are minimally invasive such as Botox and fillers can help to turn back the clock with minimal to no down time. Time can not be stopped, but the appearance of aging can.

With the expert treatments offered by Dr. Li, you look naturally more youthful and relaxed. Nonsurgical facial rejuvenation is effective in addressing issues like:
• Marionette lines between your mouth and chin

The effects of these treatments are noticeable right away and typically last 6-18 months, depending on the formula used, your personal metabolism, and the area treated.
What nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures are available?
Dr. Li offers a wide variety of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures. She can help you combine them to get the most comprehensive and natural effect.
Linda Li, MD, offers a wide range of the Juvéderm line of dermal filler injectables, a type of hyaluronic acid (HA) filler – clear, colorless gels that are effective in smoothing facial wrinkles and creases.
You benefit from Juvéderm® Volbella for the area around your mouth, Juvéderm® Ultra to plump lips and fill in fine lines, and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus to smooth general facial wrinkles. Juvéderm® Voluma™ may be used for cheek volume and smoothness.
Juvederm is a filler made from hylauronic acid. Naturally found in our bodies, Juvederm is used to plump up lips, fill smile lines and restore volume to the cheeks. The three formulations of Juvederm (Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Voluma) allow for individualized treatments for each patient creating the best results. I will personally evaluate and discuss your options prior to my injecting the treatment.
FDA approved since 1989 for facial wrinkles, Botox is an injectable product that minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the frown lines, forehead, and around the eyes. The results can last up to 3-4 months providing a more relaxed appearance. I will personally evaluate and discuss your options prior to my injecting the treatment
Neurotoxins, like Botox®, block the nerve signals that tell certain muscles in your face to contract. When injected strategically by a skilled provider like Dr. Li, they naturally ease muscle movement when you smile, frown, and squint, effectively reducing wrinkles caused during these expressions.
Sun exposure and aging often weather the skin and result in wrinkles and discolorations that hamper a person’s desire for a more youthful appearance. Using modern techniques in skin resurfacing (laser, chemical peels, or dermabrasion), a smoother, more even toned complexion can be achieved with minimal recovery
Chemical peels involve applying compounds to your skin that cause old, dull cells to slough off, revealing fresh, smooth skin and encouraging cellular renewal. Among the many peels she offers include the TCA peel, which uses trichloroacetic acid to clear away old skin and remove discoloration, scarring, and wrinkles.
Dr. Li also offers the Perfect Derma™ Peel, a medium-intensity peel that is safe for all skin types. People with hyperpigmentation, melasma, aging skin, and acne-prone skin benefit from this peel.
