    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

Lafayette area dermatologist describes the removal of acne scars

One of the unwanted aftereffects of a condition such as acne is scars. Lafayette area patients are often interested in speaking to a professional such as Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute about the removal of acne scars.

Acne scars vary. They may be permanent or may fade over time, depending on the type. During an initial consultation and examination with a professional, board certified dermatologist, the type and treatment choice can be determined based on severity of the condition and the budget of the patient. Dr. Christine Lee has a number of methods available for the removal of acne scars and can present the options to patients who are interested in addressing their concerns once and for all!

There are several different kinds of acne scars and each one may respond better with a specific treatment. Macules, tissue scarring, tissue loss, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are unique and may require specific types of treatments.

Treatment may be determined based on the type of acne. Common acne scar treatments include:
  • Dermabrasion
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical peels
  • Fillers
  • Laser therapies
  • Retinoic acid
  • Punch excisions
  • Skin grafting
Surgical procedures, such as excisions and skin grafting, are often chosen as a last resort when other methods are not improving the area of concern. However, Dr. Christine Lee may present them as options for patients when determining the severity of their condition and learning how quickly patients would like to see results.
At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute our team is committed to assisting patients in improving the appearance and health of their skin and body. We have a variety of treatments that can assist with the skin, hair, and nails, and are dedicated to providing new and existing patients with the modern technologies and the experience to offer safe and effective treatment.
