    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

What to expect from your Botox treatment

Botox is the trade name for a protein called "botulinum toxin," a powerful, naturally-occurring neurotoxin. In addition to a variety of therapeutic and medical uses, Botox Cosmetic can be your powerful weapon for fighting wrinkles. Approved by the FDA in 2002, Botox is used to improve the appearance of glabellar lines – frown lines between the eyebrows – and other mild-to-moderate facial wrinkles.

Here's what you can expect from Botox treatments in Walnut Creek:

  • CallThe Skin and Laser Treatment Institute for a consultation. Dr. M. Christine Lee will listen to your concerns and cosmetic goals to determine if Botox is right for you. Be sure to mention any existing medical conditions or medications you are taking.
  • Dr. Lee will examine your facial muscles and skin tissue.
  • You'll have a chance to look at before and after photos of actual Botox patients.
  • Ask questions!

  • Treatment is convenient – we take care of you right here at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute
  • Review your expectations with the doctor.
  • Botox injections are shallow and done with a very fine needle, so you won't need anesthetic. However, we may numb the area of treatment with an ice pack or anesthetic cream to ensure your comfort.
  • The doctor will administer the Botox just where it is needed – in the muscles causing frown lines.
  • Treatment will take only about ten minutes.

  • There's no downtime with Botox. You'll feel fine and can be on with your life as soon as you leave our office.
  • Follow any specific aftercare instructions given to you by the East Bay staff.
  • Call our office if you have questions or concerns following treatment.
  • You'll see improvement within 4 days, more results in the first week, and the full effect within a month as your muscles relax and retrain.
  • Results last up to four months. Schedule your follow-up treatment in advance.

Botox in Walnut Creek couldn't be easier! Call today for a lovely, more youthful look with Botox.
