    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

Bay area patients ask, "Can Botox be used with dermal filler injections for the face?"

Botox is a neuromodulator used by Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute of the Bay area to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. It does this by limiting contractions of the muscles of the face in which it is injected. This is not the only way for patients to address the unwanted signs of aging through The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Another method used by Dr. Christine Lee is dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers are injectables used to add volume directly to the fine lines and wrinkles of concern. There are many brands of dermal fillers including Restylane, Juvéderm, and Sculptra. Many of these are made with hyaluronic acid, which attracts water. All dermal fillers used in our practice are FDA approved for cosmetic use.

Botox and dermal fillers address different portions of the face and different types of lines and wrinkles. Because of this, they can safely be used together to create the ultimate results. Botox can be used to reduce muscle contractions, while dermal fillers can be injected into problematic areas for immediate results. By combing Botox and dermal fillers, patients can see dramatic improvements in their appearance.

Botox and dermal fillers have been used together for many years to provide a safe and effective "liquid face lift" for patients who are not quite ready for invasive alternatives such as a surgical face lift. Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is dedicated to assisting patients in reducing the signs of aging for improved self-esteem and confidence.

Are you located in the East Bay area and considering methods of anti-aging? Are you tired of using over-the-counter creams that do not provide any results against the fine lines and wrinkles on your face? Do you feel a surgical face lift is not a good solution for your concerns? If this sounds like you, it might be a great time for you to contact Dr. Christine Lee to learn more about Botox and dermal fillers.
