    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

Which pimple treatment is most appropriate for Pleasant Hills area patients?

Acne is a very common condition that is experienced by patients of all ages, genders, and skin types. Patients who struggle with moderate to severe acne may deal with regular, persistent pimples and discoloration of the skin. If untreated, these blemishes may also result in acne scarring. While some patients with mild acne may be able to address their condition with over-the-counter treatments, others may need to seek the assistance of a board certified dermatologist to get a handle on their acne and reduce it while restoring the health and beauty of their skin.

Patients in the Pleasant Hills area often speak with Dr. Christine Lee in the Walnut Creek community about the many pimple treatment options available for active acne. At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute patients are introduced to many solutions that can be used to treat and eradicate acne.

The first course of action for most patients is topical therapy. Topical therapy uses medicated creams, which are applied to the face daily to help reduce bacteria that may be causing the breakouts. This is often done in conjunction with an appropriate skin care routine that includes cleansing and moisturizing. Dr. Christine Lee may also discuss daily sunscreen use to protect the skin from the elements and reduce the risk of developing skin cancer.

The second course of action may include oral medications. Many medications can be taken daily to help control acne from the inside out. These may also be used in conjunction with a regular skin care regimen and topical treatments.

Some patients may also want to incorporate regular treatments on a weekly or monthly basis that can be used alongside a skin care routine to achieve optimum results faster. This may include laser and light therapies, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion. These can directly improve the texture and tone of the skin while removing unhealthy and dead skin cells on the upper surface for rejuvenation.

Patients with acne are encouraged to speak to a quality physician and board certified dermatologist like Dr. Christine Lee to find out more about the acne treatments that are best suited for their needs and budget.
