    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 look for in Botox treatment in Walnut Creek

The frown lines between your eyebrows are beginning to deepen. You look older, tired, concerned, – even grumpy – when in fact you feel just fine. You want your smooth, youthful complexion back, and you are ready to do something about it!

Botox® Cosmetic from Allergan may be a terrific solution. This neuromodulator, injected just beneath the skin with a fine needle, interrupts nerve impulses that tell your muscles to tighten. As they relax and retrain, moderate to severe glabellar lines (those “elevens” between your brows) refine.

Here are some important points to consider in choosing where to go for your Botox treatments:
  • In California, a physician may inject Botox. A licensed physician assistant, vocational nurse, or registered nurse may also perform the treatments under a doctor's direction. Experience certainly counts in knowing how and where to inject for natural-looking results. If the doctor will not be giving the injections, find out more about the level of oversight. At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Dr. M. Christine Lee customizes a rejuvenation plan and personally handles Botox injections.
  • Credentials matter! While any type of physician may inject Botox, one who is board certified in dermatology has a higher level of training in aesthetic and medical skin treatment. A dermatologist like Dr. Lee simply knows skin. She makes a thorough analysis of a patient's skin condition and overall medical situation before determining if that patient is a good candidate for Botox.
  • The facility is important. Cosmetic Botox injections are normally performed as an outpatient treatment, but the location should be sterile and professional. Botox is an extremely safe procedure with little risk of side effects. However, as with any medical treatment, it's best to select a provider who is equipped for emergencies and who has hospital privileges. Dr. Lee has advanced medical and surgical training, and The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is located next door to John Muir Hospital.
  • Ethics are critical. You should select a provider who takes time to understand your goals and who knows your medical situation. The doctor should explain the procedure and associated risks realistically, and patiently answer your questions. Post-treatment monitoring and home care should also be clear.
Deciding to try Botox is an exciting step! Take a little time to find a provider who is a good match, and you'll love the results.
