    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

Teens want acne treatment products that work, and can get them from Walnut Creek dermatologist Dr. Christine Lee

Acne Treatment Products Walnut Creek - Image for acnePimples, zits, breakouts . . . call it what you wish, nobody wants to struggle with the appearance of acne. The condition is prevalent amongst teenagers, but can also affect adults. While many adults may have also dealt with acne during their teen years, it remains important to understand the tremendous toll that chronic or severe breakouts can have on the psyche of a maturing teen.

In a recent study from the University of California San Francisco, researchers discovered that teens with acne want treatment or products that will fully eliminate their concerns, not just reduce symptoms. Most products that are available to teens only improve the appearance of the skin about 40 to 60 percent. This is not sufficient to fulfill their needs for confidence and aesthetic beauty. Teens involved in this study reported that they are willing to spend more time and money in treatment if they can get the results they want.

Acne is not a hygiene problem
One of the common misconceptions about acne is that the teen is somehow at least partially responsible for his or her condition. Acne is a condition that tends to occur during the teen years because there is a strong hormonal link that exacerbates skin irritation and primes it for bacterial activity in clogged pores. The natural increase in oil production makes it difficult to keep pores clean and free of debris and other matter. Sometimes, teens wash their face aggressively or with strong ingredients, which actually makes the problem worse.

Get treatment that works
Dr. Christine Lee is an experienced, board-certified dermatologist who understands the nature of acne, as well as its emotional impact. She offers expert care and support that patients need to identify the right solution for their type of acne. By conducting a thorough examination and consultation, Dr. Lee is able to devise a personal treatment program for each patient to achieve optimal results.

Acne treatment may involve a concentrated topical solution, but there are often other therapies that will expedite healing. These include microdermabrasion or chemical peels, which are intended to gently exfoliate dead, damaged cells from the surface of the skin. The removal of these cells paves the way for pores to open and for the surface to remain healthier. Patients may also benefit from light and laser therapies, which can destroy bacteria that cause skin inflammation.

Acne can be a devastating problem. To get treatment that works, contact your Walnut Creek dermatologist at (925) 500-1180.
