    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

Dr. Lee Christine at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute explains about The laser acne scar removal in the Walnut Creek, CA area

What are the benefits of laser acne scar removal in Walnut Creek, CA?


Walnut Creek, CA area patients who are interested in addressing acne scars are welcome to ask Dr. M. Christine Lee and her team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute about the advantages of laser solutions.

What are acne scars?

Patients who have had severe cases of acne in the past may be at risk for developing acne scars. Acne scars are pits or marks on the skin that are left behind from pustules that may have incorrectly healed. They can be anything from a shallow divot in the skin to a deep hole known as an “ice pick scar.” Patients who have these scars may feel self-conscious about their appearance. They may be unable to cover these scars with makeup, as they affect the texture of the skin. At this point, many patients take the time to speak to the team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute about laser acne scar removal.

How can a laser address acne scars?

What other options are available for acne scarring?

Another solution patients with acne scars may want to consider is chemical peels. Chemical peels use a specific mix of ingredients to remove dead skin cells. This can smooth out the skin and provide a more youthful appearance. However, patients with deep ice pick scars may want to consider an alternative such as dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectables formulated with hyaluronic acid, which attracts water wherever it is administered. When dermal fillers are used in ice pick scars, it lifts the skin and levels it to eliminate the appearance of acne scars. This is a very effective way of addressing these specific types of scars which will not always respond well to laser therapies and chemical peels. To determine which treatment is appropriate, patients are urged to visit our team for a consultation appointment and initial evaluation. We educate patients on their options, so they can make a knowledgeable decision regarding how to pursue treatment for their acne scars.
