    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

Walnut Creek residents learn the benefits of laser acne scar removal


Dr.Christine Lee, Laser Acne Scar Removal Walnut Creek
The woes of acne as a teenager can haunt you long after school days have ended.

Located in Walnut Creek, Dr. Christine Lee offers laser procedures for acne scar removal.

Preventing scars

Prevention is often the best treatment. Do not pop pimples! We understand the embarrassment caused by acne, but picking at it only makes the problem worse. It can cause redness, broken skin, inflammation, infection, and scars. Avoiding sun exposure helps in acne treatment, as well. Overexposure to the sun makes acne worse and last longer.

Scar formation

When pimples burst deep within the skin, bacteria and dead skin cells spread under the surface creating bigger lesions. Your body tries to repair damage by generating new collagen. The texture of the skin may change due to the repairs. Hypertrophic or atrophic scars may form.
  • Hypertrophic scars occur when too much collagen is created, causing bumps or raised areas on the skin.
  • Atrophic scars occur when tissue is lost, resulting in depressions or indentations in the skin.

Treating scars

Laser treatment for acne scars was introduced around 1980. With improvements in technology, there are now pulsed light and heat energy therapies, blue light treatments, and photodynamic therapy. The method used depends on the patient and severity of scarring. A combination of treatments may be used to get best results. Although no scar treatment gets rid of acne scars completely, laser therapy can reduce their appearance and improve the texture and quality of skin.

You’ve done your time. Stop letting acne ruin your skin. Contact The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to learn more about treatment options. Make an appointment with Dr. Christine Lee today – 925-500-1180.
