Dr. M. Christine Lee is an acknowledged leader in cosmetic, dermatologic, and advanced laser skin treatments. Listed below are just some of the cutting edge procedures that Dr. Lee offers.
The Liposonix treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to permanently destroy targeted fat just beneath the skin in the abdomen and love handles. And because it does not require surgery, there is little to no downtime.
DeepFX & ActiveFX & TotalFX - Fractional Resurfacing
Deep FX, the latest in fractional treatment offered by Dr. Lee., joins the already popular ActiveFX as a powerful way to treat wrinkles, scars, skin tone and texture in as few as one or two treatments with minimum downtime.
ActiveFX targets the epidermal and papillary dermal layers of the skin and is ideal for treating conditions that manifest in the upper layers of the skin, including fine lines, dyschromia, and textural irregularities. DeepFX targets the deep dermal layers of the skin, and provides exceptional results on deep wrinkles, scars, and peri-oral rhytids.
TotalFX is the combination of the DeepFX and the ActiveFX treatments.
Thermage for Body
In 2006, the FDA approved Thermage for use on the body as a safe method of reducing skin laxity in regions such as the arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
Body by Thermage is a non-invasive treatment used to restore and regenerate collagen deep inside the skin without injections or surgery.
Thermage tightens body skin by using radiofrequency technology that heats the skin’s outer layer, thus stimulating collagen beneath the surface. Patients may feel mild heat as Thermage releases radiofrequency energy, but general anesthesia is not required. The patient’s collagen is renewed and tightened, improving the skin’s texture and tone immediately. New collagen continues to grow during the six months following the Body by Thermage procedure, and patients will see more results as their collagen is restored during this period.
Thermage for Cellulite
This treatment is ideal for patients who have tried diet and exercise or even other cellulite treatments without success. Now they can benefit from:
• A single treatment with no surgery, injections or downtime
• Smoothing of dimples and improved skin texture
• Long lasting results
By using new procedure guidelines and the ThermaTip CL treatment tip, collagen connective tissues are restored and circulation is improved to help smooth skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Results vary from subtle to dramatic. Generally improvements may be immediately visible and continue to improve for up to six months. Results are long lasting and depend on your skin condition and the aging process.
Titan Skin Tightening
The Titan Procedure is a safe, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging. The Titan heats the dermis to cause collagen contraction while preserving the epidermis through continuous cooling. In addition, Titan can stimulate long-term collagen rebuilding that leaves patients with younger looking skin. The Titan Procedure treats lax and redundant skin throughout the body – including the abdomen, thighs and underarms – and is also used to tone, lift and tighten skin on the face and neck.
PW770 Laser Hair Removal
The Programmable Wavelength 770 (ProWave 770) IPL device is the latest in the new wave of hair removal devices. Dr. Lee performed the clinical studies for Cutera, the manufacturer of the PW770, and her results showed the PW770 to be much more effective and quicker than competing IPL hair removal devices. It is the first infrared programmable wavelength spectra for hair removal.
Eyes by Thermage
This new procedure allows Dr. Lee to reduce hooding, improve texture, tone and smoothness of the eye area, and soften fine lines and crow’s feet.
Eyes by Thermage, like all Body by Thermage procedures, uses a unique, deep-heating monopolar capacitive radiofrequency technology to stimulate and tighten existing collagen as well as activate new collagen growth. Patients benefit from a single treatment with no downtime. Results are subtle and improve over time as new collagen forms.

Definitely no one better in the bay area. I have been so impressed with her bedside manner and most of all with her results. If you want results then you should make an appointment right away.

Words can not describe how grateful I am to Dr. Lee for saving my face and honestly I would say my life. She's an absolute master and genius at what she does. I wouldn't even be able to show my face in public now if it weren't for her. I had the worst scars on my face that were so bad they scared other people. These scars were caused by a doctor who burned my face with a laser. I would have been happy just looking a little better but Dr. Lee was able to make my face look almost normal again. I can cover most of what's left with make-up now and most people can't tell what had happened to me. I still have internal scars from what that other doctor did but at least the outside scars are pretty much gone. I wish I had never had to go thru all this but I'm just grateful that there was someone like Dr. Lee who could help me get my face back.
Absolutely the best results. I wish I had gone to her first instead of wasting my money with no-nothing nurses are doctors who talk a good game but are merely dabblers. I got the results I needed and now look 15 years younger. She is a miracle worker!

She's the best doctor!
Dr. Lee treated my moles and also the moles on my 2 young girls with laser. They were very scared but Dr. Lee did a great job getting them to trust her. She was very patient and kind. AFter the first time, my daughters thought it was no big deal and were no longer scared. She did a great job removing the moles and we're all so happy! I wouldn't trust anyone else to treat me or my family. She's the best!

The only doctor who helped my rosacea
I have really bad rosacea and sensitive skin and haven't been able to find any doctor who can help me...that is, until I found Dr. M. Christine Lee. I've seen several other very well-known derms and spent tons of money trying to get my rosacea under control. I've had fotofacials, IPL, VBeam, you name it, I've had it. Nothing has really made a difference. I almost gave up until I found out about Dr. Lee from the online rosacea support group. I heard great things about a laser procedure she developed. I started seeing her over a year ago and have gone thru several treatments and I am THRILLED!!!! I feel like a normal person for the first time in my life. No more redness and burning. Her treatment has been a miracle for me. All I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
