    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

Can Walnut Creek area patients use Botox injections in the lip area?


administering botox injections to patient lips

When patients in the Walnut Creek area hear of Botox, they are often interested in determining where it can be used. It is a common misconception that injections such as Botox are for the lip area. Dr. Christine Lee and her team of The East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center, Inc. want to help debunk these myths and provide their patients with accurate information.

What is Botox?

First, it is important to know how Botox works. Botox is a neuromodulator. It reduces muscle contractions. By doing so in specific areas of the face, it can smooth out the skin after several days and reduce the appearance of dynamic folds and wrinkles. Dr. Christine Lee finds that Botox is beneficial in specific areas of the face including between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the eyes to combat crow’s feet.

Does Botox work on the lips?

Patients interested in lip augmentation will not benefit from Botox injections. The volume of the lips does not improve by reducing muscle contractions with a neuromodulator. Therefore, patients will benefit more from using dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid. This may include injectable brands such as Juvéderm, which is readily available at our practice.
