    Right Quote 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. Right Quote

    Right Quote 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. Right Quote

    Right Quote 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! Right Quote

    Right Quote 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! Right Quote

    Right Quote 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!!! Right Quote

Seeking acne scar removal? Walnut Creek laser specialists offer customized, precision treatment


Acne Scar Removal Treatment Walnut Creek
Don’t live with unpleasant reminders of acne outbreaks. Trust your laser acne scar removal in Walnut Creek to the best. Internationally recognized for her knowledge of laser- and light-based technologies, Dr. Christine Lee not only offers 40-plus devices but also works with companies to develop the latest, greatest laser innovations. Taking all of this into account, The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute has the breadth and depth of expertise to meet and effectively treat your unique needs.

Did you know? Scars are actually your body’s way of healing itself. When your skin is injured, collagen “fills in” and reconnects wounded tissue. As healing occurs, a scab forms and sometimes leaves behind an area of discoloration. How the scar looks and, accordingly, how Dr. Lee treats it depends on several factors, including:
  • Depth
  • Size
  • Location
  • Skin tone
  • Age

In some cases, scars actually look more noticeable over time because your skin naturally produces less collagen. You may be grappling with scars now because of later-onset acne or outbreaks in adulthood. Dr. Lee is accustomed to treating patients of all ages with acne, not just teens.

When too little collagen is produced during the healing process, acne outbreaks may leave behind depressed scars. When too much collagen is made, raised scars appear.

Scar treatment, the laser expert’s way

While some practices may depend on a single laser, Dr. Lee and her team understand no single device works for each and every patient’s acne scarring. Her many devices and approaches, from IPL to blue-light therapy, are customized to your type of scar and unique personal characteristics.

As the beam of laser light is precisely applied to the treatment site, energy generated from the device sloughs off damaged skin and makes way for rejuvenated tissue. This energy also stimulates the production of new collagen.

Acne removal with lasers is not any one thing at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Call (925) 500-1180 to discover treatment customized to you.
