    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

Benefits of Cellulaze

Related Categories
Women of all ages can develop cellulite, which can result in lumpy, bumpy skin on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. While it has been said that cellulite is a result of excess fat, this is not the case. Instead, it is a result of tight connective tissues in the area, which can cause pockets of fat to push around these tissues and against the skin, causing dimpling, which is characteristic of cellulite.

Many women have tried massage techniques and topical creams to help in combating cellulite, but none of these will truly work. Instead, Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute suggests that patients consider alternative solutions that can provide results, including a treatment known as Cellulaze™.

Cellulaze™ is done under local anesthetics and it uses specialized cannulas to disperse laser energy just underneath the skin where these connective tissues are. It works by breaking up these tissues to reduce the lumpy fat deposits that develop and negatively affect the texture and appearance of the skin. These cannulas are inserted in very small incisions around the thighs and buttocks and they provide patients with a tried-and-true procedure against cellulite. The procedure can take approximately two hours, but patients are made comfortable throughout treatment.

Patients who have Cellulaze™ completed by Dr. Christine Lee will also want to discuss after-care instructions to maximize results. It is common for patients to notice slight aching and bruising for several days, but this can be controlled with a compression garment, which can be worn for up to a week after the procedure. Most patients are able to resume their normal activity within two days. Results are seen immediately and they will continue to improve over the course of several month, allowing many patients to feel confident and bikini-ready in no time at all!

Thanks to the team of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, men and women have a wide range of aesthetic solutions available for improving the texture, tone, and health of the skin, as well as address body contour concerns that may make them feel less confidence and reduce their self-esteem. If cellulite is causing a problem for you, now is the time to contact Dr. Christine Lee to book a consultation appointment and find out more about Cellulaze™.
