    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

Unique Cellulaze device stimulates collagen and reduces cellulite by targeting root of condition with laser

Cellulite Reduction Treatment In Bay Area - Cellulite Reduction TreatmentCellulaze™ is one of only two devices approved by the FDA for the treatment of cellulite. This feature distinguishes Cellulaze™ from the countless creams and products marketed as “wonder” treatments that don’t live up to their claims.

The condition is all the more exasperating, because weight loss reduces the appearance of dimples somewhat by shedding fat and bulking up muscle. However, diet and exercise alone can’t treat cellulite. A more invasive procedure, liposuction, does not have an indication for this condition.

What makes Cellulaze™ so special?

Cellulaze™ is designed to affect the true cause of cellulite. For this reason, the device lives up to its promises where other techniques and approaches fail. Approaches such as weight loss and liposuction are designed to reduce fat cells, but cellulite is caused by changes in the structure of your skin.

Your skin is made up of fibrous connective cords, fat cells, and underlying muscle. As the fat cells push up against the skin, the fibrous connective cords tethering skin to muscle are pulled down. Tension creates uneven surfaces, bumps, and dimples.

While fat cells accumulate and cellulite looks more noticeable following weight gain and inactivity, it is estimated around 80 percent of post-adolescent women have it, regardless of size, weight, fitness, and diet.

Cellulite may become more noticeable as you get older and the body produces less of the collagen and elastin responsible for skin’s tautness and firmness.

Cellulaze™: A true cellulite reduction treatment in Bay Area

Cellulaze™ targets those bands that pull down the skin. After Dr. Lee marks the areas to be treated, tiny pen tip-sized incisions will be made. A local anesthetic will be applied for your comfort. You should feel little more than light pressure as the doctor gently inserts a small tube through the incision. Inside that tube she has threaded the Cellulaze™ laser fiber.

Energy from the laser releases the pulled-down bands responsible for cellulite. With the bands no longer under tension, the skin bounces back just like a rubber band. With the release of these tight bands, the bumps, peaks, and valleys are smoothed.

Since Cellulaze™ uses laser technology, it has the unique benefit of stimulating the production of collagen. This firming protein thickens the skin and makes tissue more elastic, resulting in a smoother appearance. The laser energy also produces heat, which liquefies fat that can then be gently removed from the body.

You can see results from the 60- to 90-minute treatment right away. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, there is little healing time. You can return to normal activities within 48 hours. Bruising and achiness from Cellulaze™ usually resolves within a few days.

Since Cellulaze™ stimulates positive structural changes, you will notice increasingly tighter skin and a smoother appearance in the coming months. After a year, 93 percent of patients remained satisfied with the results of treatment. To find out more about the steps involved with Cellulaze™, schedule a consultation with one of the world’s leading laser experts, Dr. Lee. Call East Bay Laser & Skin Care Center (925) 500-1180.
