    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

Dermatologist in San Francisco offers treatment for acne

Many patients with acne in the San Francisco area will start off with over-the-counter cleansers and topical treatments in an attempt to reduce and control their acne. However, some of these products do not provide results, especially for patients who are dealing with more severe cases of acne. Dr. Christine Lee, board certified dermatologist at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute works with many men and women who have exhausted over-the-counter options when it comes to controlling and reducing their acne. This is when they consider the benefits of working with a dermatologist who specializes in skin care and skin health.

Acne is a common issue that doesn’t just occur in teenagers. In fact, many adults deal with adult acne well into their 30’s and 40’s. Dr. Christine Lee works closely with these patients to help them determine the type of acne they are struggling with, the severity, the cause, and then develop a skin care routine that can control their condition.

Acne treatment in a dermatology practice is designed with the patient in mind. Dr. Christine Lee understands that no two cases are the same. Some treatments may work better for one patient than they do for another. Other times, treatment may be a series of trial and error to determine how the skin reacts to certain services.

The first step in the treatment of acne is designing a skin care regimen. This includes cleansers, toners, and moisturizers to ensure the skin’s surface is clean and free from bacteria. Second, many topical creams may be introduced into the skin care regimen. These may include ingredients; such as benzoil peroxide and salicylic acid, which are known for reducing acne. While these ingredients are often found in over-the-counter products, they are more concentrated and stronger in prescription-strength creams.

Once patients have their acne controlled, they may want to begin adding in other treatments that can help them with their skin. This may include services; such as, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, light therapy, and laser therapy. These can be integrated into one’s skin care regimen and can continue to improve the skin. Not only can these control acne, but they may also help with other issues such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and overall texture and tone of the skin’s surface.
