    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

What can I expect during a Cellulaze treatment by Walnut Creek dermatologist?

Cellulite is a common problem. It can cause patients to feel uncomfortable about baring their skin in shorts, skirts, or swimsuits. These areas of lumps and dimples can ruin an individual's self-esteem and confidence. This is why many of them will visit their dermatologist to learn about ways to address this issue, and will often learn about the benefits of Cellulaze treatment. Walnut Creek dermatologist, Dr. Christine Lee, understands how cellulite can cause a negative effect on one's confidence, and can be a source of embarrassment for many. With Cellulaze treatment, Walnut Creek patients can visit The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute and find a way to reduce the appearance of this condition and improve their self-confidence.

Cellulaze treatment utilizes a laser to break down the fat deposits that cause cellulite and help stimulate the production of collagen in the area to smooth out the dimpling. Treatment can take about two hours, depending upon the size and severity of the treatment area.

Dr. Christine Lee is often asked what patients can expect during a Cellulaze treatment. This in-office, outpatient treatment begins with Dr. Christine Lee marking off the area to be treated, and then making several small incisions into the skin after numbing solution is used to keep the patient comfortable throughout the procedure. The Cellulaze laser fiber is ran through a small tube (cannula) then inserted through the incision to treat the area. It will release the fibrous bands that are pulling on the skin, and will level out the fat while pressing out any of the liquefied fat during the process. This laser will also help stimulate the production of collagen to smooth the area. In less than two hours, your treatment will be complete, and your dermatologist will then educate you on post-procedure care.

With Cellulaze treatment, results will continue to improve over the course of a year. You will notice that over time, the cellulite appears less noticeable and your skin is smooth and supple.

Are you interested in Cellulaze treatment? Walnut Creek area patients can call Dr. Christine Lee at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to schedule your consultation appointment and ask any questions you may have about this particular cellulite treatment and the results you can expect.
