    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

Is cellulite treatment effective for Walnut Creek, CA? Ask from Dr. Lee Christine at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institut

Is cellulite treatment effective for Walnut Creek, CA area patients?


Many women, regardless of age, become susceptible to the development of cellulite. Cellulite is often referred to as “cottage cheese thighs” because of the bumpy texture. When Walnut Creek, CA area patients are interested in treatment, they are encouraged to ask their dermatologist about the benefits of Cellulaze.

Cellulaze explained

To fully understand how Cellulaze works, Dr. M. Christine Lee explains how cellulite forms. Cellulite is commonly thought to be related to fat. However, this is not the reason it develops. The dimpling seen with cellulite is caused by bands of connective tissue that are underneath the skin. They are tight, and result in small pockets of fat cells being pushed through the areas against the skin. Because skin can be thin, it then reveals the areas of trapped fat as dimples and bumps.

Dr. Lee Christine at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institut explains What Cellulaze is. While there have been many products that claim to reduce or eliminate cellulite, including creams and special massage techniques, none of these address cellulite, because they fail to target the problem at the source. However, with Cellulaze, patients can enjoy an effective treatment that addresses the structural problems that develop underneath the skin to cause cellulite, resulting in noticeably smoother skin.

Cellulaze is a special procedure that is done in a minimally invasive manner. It uses a few incisions strategically placed around the treatment area where a cannula with laser fibers is inserted to break up the connective tissue underneath the skin. Additionally, these same lasers stimulate collagen production to improve the thickness and quality of the skin, greatly reducing the appearance of cellulite in the area. The procedure takes approximately two hours, and is performed with local anesthetics.

What can I expect after Cellulaze treatments?

First, patients love to hear that the procedure is done with local anesthetics for optimum comfort. During the treatment, patients will feel light pressure in the area. Following the procedure, typically the day after, patients will experience achiness and light bruising, which may be improved with the use of a compression garment. Most patients can resume their normal activities within two days. They’ll see the results, with continued reduction of cellulite due to collagen production occurring over the course of several months. The areas where incisions were made to insert the cannula heal nicely and are so small, they are practically invisible! Patients see results not only with cellulite but with improved skin elasticity and thickness. 93 percent of patients who underwent Cellulaze for clinical research were completely satisfied with the results and would recommend it to others.
