    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

How Botox differs from dermal fillers in Lafayette

Thanks to continued advances, cosmetic dermatology has seen a number of beneficial treatments that allow patients to rejuvenate their skin, improve their body, and address imperfections. Whether patients are seeking laser treatments, chemical peels, or injectables, Dr. Christine Lee and the team of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute can assist. With a consultation appointment, in the Lafayette area can learn about the ways in which dermal fillers and other injectables can help fight the unwanted signs of aging.

Injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers are commonly used as a proactive approach to aging. Instead of undergoing surgery, patients can see dramatic improvements in the depth and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with the use of injectables. However, Botox and other dermal fillers work differently when it comes to battling the signs of aging.

Botox is a neuromodulator used to reduce muscle contractions. This injectable is commonly used on areas on the upper portion of the face, including between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and for crow's feet. Made of botulinum toxin A, Botox can block the nerve impulses, which can smooth out the skin. Botox results can last anywhere from four to six months after initial injections.

Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers work differently from Botox. These injectables, which include brands such as Juvéderm and Restylane, are used to add volume to the wrinkles of the face. They are made of hyaluronic acid which is absorbed safely back into the body. Depending on the type of dermal filler, results can last up to a year or longer. When administered by a skilled professional, dermal fillers are extremely safe and can provide an immediate result.

Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute provides both Botox injections and dermal fillers. When used together, they can offer amazing results. Patients in the Lafayette area who are interested in learning more about Botox and dermal fillers are encouraged to contact our practice to find out what non-invasive methods are available for reducing the signs of aging.
