    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

Find the best acne treatment with the professionals in Walnut Creek


best acne treatment from Dr. Christine Lee in Walnut Creek area
It’s not unusual for patients to come to The Skin & Laser Treatment Institute after experiencing acne. You may be frustrated over OTC cleansers and other products that didn’t make a difference in the appearance or feel of your skin. You’re not the problem; the problem is companies that develop acne medication only with younger patients in mind.

The Best Acne Treatment in Walnut Creek at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute considers your specific needs and personal characteristics. For example, teenagers tend to develop acne across the entire face due to oiliness brought on by puberty. Adult women may notice tender, red spots around the jaw, mouth, and chin. Changing estrogen levels during periods, pregnancy, and menopause may be to blame. As cell turnover slows, your spots may take longer to heal than they did in the past and can be complicated by other age-related issues: prolonged redness, sensitivity, dryness, and hyperpigmentation.

Professional skincare to the rescue

Dr. Lee and the skin specialists understand the differences between adult and teenaged acne, and have a myriad products, medications, and procedures to safely and effectively treat and prevent patients’ outbreaks. A product that you used in childhood may be ineffective now that you’re older because it’s designed for young oily skin. In fact, these products can make dry adult skin and acne worse, producing more inflammation and increasing the odds that zits will leave behind lasting reminders like scars.

Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Lee may recommend:
  • Prescription products and medications that contain retinoid to unplug follicles
  • Hormonal therapies alone or in conjunction with other medications and therapies
  • Procedures ranging from chemical peels to microdermabrasion
No single treatment is best for all patients, nor may a single product or therapy be best for you. Call (925) 500-1180 to schedule a consultation.
