    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

Dr. Lee Christine at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute explains about The Botox treatment permanent for patients near me in the Walnut Creek, CA area

Is Botox treatment permanent for patients near Walnut Creek?


Patients near Walnut Creek faced with aging skin are often unaware of the non-surgical options available to them in turning back the hands of time. Skin laxity is a common concern that often develops after the age of 30, when the body’s natural collagen and elastin stores begin to diminish. The loose skin on the face then results in the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the face that can contribute to an aging appearance. Dr. M. Christine Lee at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is a medical professional who is pleased to offer cosmetic injectable solutions, including Botox.

Botox explained

Dr. M. Christine Lee describes Botox as an injectable that is used to reduce muscle contractions. When injected into the muscles of the face, it smooths the lines and wrinkles that are known to form primarily on the upper third of the face. Botox is best for the treatment of:
  • Glabellar lines
  • Forehead folds
  • Crow’s feet
Botox is formulated with a toxin known as botulinum toxin type A, though it is completely safe for muscle relaxation. In fact, Botox has been used for many decades in the medical field, treating conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder and chronic migraines. By reducing muscle contractions on the face, doctors have found the benefit for cosmetic purposes: smoothing of wrinkles and folds that may cause patients to look older than they feel.

Is Botox treatment permanent?

Dr. Lee Christine at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute explains Crow’s feet Many men and women considering methods of treating fine lines and wrinkles are considering the advantages of a permanent treatment. While invasive procedures such as face lift with a plastic surgeon will provide more permanent results, Botox is known as a short-term option. However, the results do last approximately six to nine months for many of our patients, and reinjection can be performed to maintain the results and slow the overall signs of aging.

Can I use other injectables while using Botox?

Yes! In fact, Dr. M. Christine Lee encourages patients with fine lines and wrinkles, and even volume loss, on the face to think about the advantages of combining cosmetic injectables for a “liquid face lift.” Botox is just one element of a liquid face lift, targeting dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. Dermal fillers are another option, and add volume directly into lines and folds. Patients who are concerned about volume loss, which typically occurs in the cheek area, may want to ask about integrating collagen stimulators. When all three of these injections are used, patients can enjoy a complete transformation and start taking charge of their aging appearance.

Is Botox affordable?

Dr. Lee Christine at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute explains fine lines and wrinklesMany patients find that Botox is a relatively affordable option, especially when it is compared to plastic surgery. Plastic surgery should only be used in cases in which the development of wrinkles and folds are severe and can no longer be improved with other methods of treatment. Dr. M. Christine Lee finds that many patients want to avoid surgical solutions because they are invasive and require downtime and healing. Patients are often at risk for developing infection, as they are with any surgical procedure. Botox and other cosmetic injectables greatly reduce this risk and allow patients to return to their normal schedules following treatment, while enjoying results that develop within a few days. Dermal fillers are the only injectables that offer same-day results, while Botox can take approximately one week to show. Collagen and elastic stimulators require several weeks, but the results can last several years. Patients are encouraged to book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with the team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to learn about each of these services.
