    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

Safe Rejuvenation with Botox in East Bay

The term Botox has become almost synonymous with facial rejuvenation for anyone who wants to maintain a more youthful appearance – from Hollywood to your own neighborhood. These days it seems like everyone is talking about how easy and safe injections can be. However, it's important to understand the facts when you consider Botox.

Botox is Allergan's brand name for cosmetic use of the botulinum toxin – a powerful neurotoxin produced naturally by bacteria, which blocks neuromuscular transmissions. It is poisonous if ingested in improperly handled foods. However, medical research dating as far back as the 1920's began to help us understand the possible therapeutic uses of botulinum toxin. Successful treatment methods for conditions such as crossed-eyes (strabismus), rapid blinking (blepharospasm), muscle spasms, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and migraine headaches ensued.

After extensive testing, in early 2002 the FDA approved the use of botulinum toxin for temporary improvement in glabellar lines – those “elevens” between the eyebrows. The use of Botox in this and other facial areas has now become commonplace to smooth lines and wrinkles. Since 2002, nearly 12 million Botox treatments have been administered in the United States alone, and 92 percent of patients are happy with the outcome.

The product is injected just below the surface of the skin with a very fine needle in precisely defined areas. It works in two ways – first, it blocks impulses from the brain that tell facial muscles to contract. Second, it re-trains those muscles to relax, thus contributing less to future wrinkles. You'll see results in a few days, and improvement will continue for about a month. Then, you may expect those results to last up to four months. Botox injections are an alternative to more invasive methods of rejuvenation, and the look is natural, not frozen.

In the hands of a skilled, experienced injector, you have a safe option for facial rejuvenation – Botox. The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers the additional security of a Board-certified dermatologist overseeing treatment.

As with any medical procedure, there is risk of complications. Dr. Lee will explain the chance of allergic reaction and the possibility of mild, temporary bruising or swelling. She will be sure you are a good candidate for Botox before scheduling treatment.

Ready to turn back the hands of time safely, with FDA-approved Botox injections? Call the The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today.
