    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 happens during a Cellulaze procedure for Walnut Creek residents?

Are you struggling with cellulite? Do you want to feel more confident in your own skin? If so, it may be time to consider a Cellulaze procedure. Walnut Creek dermatologist, Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, provides Cellulaze treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the thigh, buttocks, and legs. Women of all ages can experience cellulite, which is a visual dimpling of the skin. It is caused by tight connective tissues underneath the skin, and fat that is trapped in the area. Patients with thinner skin may experience more severe cellulite.

Many patients turn to Dr. Christine Lee after having tried oral medications, massaging techniques, and body creams and lotions. None of them reduce cellulite The FDA has approved Cellulaze as a proven technique for reducing the structural conditions that cause cellulite and improving the appearance of the skin's texture. The results last and can be improved with exercise and a nutritional diet.

The process of a Cellulaze procedure is relatively simple. Patients are anesthetized with a local numbing agent that is injected into the treatment area. Several very small incisions are made, and the Cellulaze wand (called a cannula) is inserted to deliver the laser energy that breaks up the connective bands of tissue causing the cellulite to occur. The lumpy, fatty deposits underneath the upper layer of skin are broken down, and the appearance of the skin's texture will greatly improve. The procedure itself will take less than two hours, and is an outpatient procedure.

After the treatment, you may feel a little sore and achy, but this is mild and it will only last a day or two. There may be some light bruising, and a compression garment should be worn. After 48 hours, you can resume normal activities.

The results of Cellulaze can be seen right away, and, over the course of several months, the condition will improve even more. The small incisions will not leave very visible scars. Many patients enjoy the results that they achieve, and are happy with receiving the Cellulaze procedure from a qualified, skilled, and experienced doctor such as Dr. Christine Lee.
