    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

Which Pleasant Hill, CA area patients are appropriate for Botox treatment?

Anyone researching anti-aging solutions may have run across information regarding Botox treatment. Botox can be administered to specific muscles to help relax them and reduce contractions. This, in turn, can help in smoothing areas of the skin on the face, including the lines and creases that form around the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute of the Pleasant Hills, CA area provides Botox injections to patients who are dealing with a variety of concerns.

Botox is not only used to address wrinkles and folds on the face. It has been used in the past for many medical conditions, including excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), tension in the jaw, chronic migraines, eye twitching, muscle spasms, and even urinary incontinence. Patients benefit from this medication as it can relax areas that can benefit from less muscle activity.

Patients who come to The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute from the Pleasant Hills, CA area and surrounding communities searching for anti-aging solutions may ask Dr. Christine Lee if Botox is right for them. An examination is necessary to determine if patients are suitable candidates for treatment.

The best candidate is a man or woman who is dealing with muscle-related wrinkles and folds. Dr. Christine Lee only treats adult patients, so individuals must be at least 18 years of age to receive Botox injections. Patients must also consult with her to learn more about the procedure as well as what they can expect. As with any medication, there are risks and potential side effects, which may include:
  • Allergic reaction
  • Initial bruising
  • Temporary paralysis
  • Bleeding
With this in mind, patients must also be of good overall health to undergo injections, and understand that Botox is not a permanent solution. Patients will need to have injections done periodically to maintain the results and enjoy the reduction of wrinkles and folds. Patients must have realistic expectations of treatment and should educate themselves on the experience of their provider. Dr. Christine Lee is a board certified dermatologist who has the expertise and licensing to provide Botox injections to her patients in a safe and appropriate environment.
