Welcome to an enlightening conversation with the renowned Dr. Li, a true expert in the world of cosmetic rejuvenation. With an extensive reservoir of experience within the cosmetic procedure sphere and an authentic ardor for elevating individuals' self-assurance, Dr. Li is here to share practical tips and tricks for those embarking on a quest to elevate their skincare regimen and amplify their post-procedure recuperation. Dr. Li's methodology is rooted in tailoring care to the individual and ensuring each patient feels their best throughout their recovery journey. So, let's delve into Dr. Li's background, the common procedures performed at medical esthetic clinics, and the best ways to unlock your skin's full potential.
[DISCOVERING DR. LI'S BACKGROUND AND EXPERTISE]
Dr. Li's journey into cosmetic medicine began with a diverse background in full-service family medicine. Working in various medical settings, from the emergency department to delivering babies in the obstetrical unit, Dr. Li discovered her passion for working with her hands and building meaningful relationships with her patients. Her keen eye for beauty, symmetry, and proportions naturally led her to the field of cosmetic medicine.
Under the guidance of the famous Dr. Martin Braun, the medical director of Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre, Dr. Li honed her skills and expertise in cosmetic procedures.

The R-Medy Group, established by Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre in 2020, is committed to supporting whole-body health and achieving whole-body confidence. Their comprehensive range of services includes healthcare, functional medicine, and medical esthetics. At R-Medy Aesthetics, they go beyond surface beauty, offering facial rejuvenation, whole-body contouring, and vitamin therapy to enhance overall well-being. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures fall into two broad categories: injectables and machines. Injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers help address facial wrinkles and restore volume, while machines like lasers, skin tightening devices, and microneedling work at different layers to rejuvenate the skin.
[ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VALMONT SKINCARE]
Cosmetic procedures can sometimes result in downtime and discomfort during the recovery process. "It's not a Medispa," Dr.Li reminds us, "so the procedures are not comfortable or relaxing." Dr. Li advises simplifying the skincare regime during the first week post-treatment, focusing on rehydrating and repairing the skin. This includes using well-proven products to aid in recovery and support the healing process.
Valmont skincare products are known for their effectiveness in promoting skin health. During the recovery phase, these products play a significant role in accelerating skin repair. The DNA extracted from the milk of salmon in Valmont products aids in regeneration and hydration.
FUN FACT: Did you know DNA is even more hydrating the hyaluronic acid?
[ADDRESSING SCARRING AND INFLAMMATION]
To minimize scarring, it's essential to focus on maintaining skin hydration and repairing the skin barrier. Valmont's Hydra3 Regenetic serum and cream are excellent choices for achieving these goals. To address inflammation and redness, Dr. Li recommends Valmont's Primary Veil, a refreshing mist containing pre and probiotics, lithium-rich water, and pro-vitamin B5 to soothe and balance irritated skin.
[RESTORING SKIN HYDRATION]
For dry or flaky skin, especially after machine-assisted treatments, Valmont skincare products come to the rescue. The use of DNA, hyaluronic acid, and mimetic lipids in Valmont products effectively restores skin hydration, making Valmont's Prime Regenera II an intensely nourishing and repairing cream for those struggling with extra dry skin.
[LONG-TERM MAINTENANCE WITH VALMONT]
To maintain the results of cosmetic procedures over time, consistency in skincare is key. Just like going to the gym to maintain physical fitness, consistent use of skincare products and treatments ensures optimal skin health and beauty. Valmont products provide the right mix of active and repairing ingredients to support this journey.
[PERSONALIZED VALMONT SKINCARE ROUTINES]
As every individual's skin is unique, Dr. Li stresses the importance of personalized Valmont skincare routines. A consultation with Dr. Li or one of her knowledgeable skincare consultants ensures that each person's skincare needs are addressed according to their skin type, current needs, life stage, and season.
[PREPARING YOUR SKIN WITH VALMONT PRODUCTS]
For those considering cosmetic procedures, priming the skin with Valmont products can accelerate skin repair post-treatment. With liposomal RNA delivering essential repair and healing properties, Valmont products ensure the best possible outcome for procedures.
[AVOIDING COMMON POST-PROCEDURE SKINCARE MISTAKES]
The most common mistakes Dr. Li observes are a lack of consistency and using too many active ingredients. Valmont products focus on strengthening the skin barrier, so a simple yet effective routine is the key. Less is more, and a little goes a long way when it comes to achieving radiant and healthy skin.
[SUPPORTING SKIN HEALTH BEYOND SKINCARE PRODUCTS]
Apart from using skincare products, lifestyle factors significantly impact the recovery process after cosmetic procedures. Drinking plenty of water, avoiding smoking and alcohol, and maintaining a consistent exercise regime all contribute to supporting skin health during this time.
QUICK FIRE ROUND:
[MORNING BIRD OR NIGHT OWL]
NEITHER! I have 2 young children and a busy job, so between work and being a mother, I never feel like I have enough time for myself.
[BEACH OR MOUNTAIN]
The mountains. I used to do a lot of hiking and rock climbing, and always found it so peaceful in the quiet of the mountains.
[CAT OR DOG]
Dog. I have a 7-year-old Siberian Husky whom I always joke was my first child.
[BREAKFAST, LUNCH OR DINNER]
I am a food-lover, so dinner is when I get to unwind and enjoy something yummy.
[FACIAL OR MASSAGE]
Both. It really depends on what my body needs on that day.
[SKINCARE RULE YOU SWEAR BY]
Sunscreen every single day, rain, or shine. And when outside, reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours.
[SKINCARE RULE YOU BREAK]
I’m not very good at applying Retinol nightly. I have sensitive skin, so I focus more on repairing my skin.
