    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

Surgical dermatology treatments offered by Walnut Creek, CA cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Christine Lee


Dr. Christine Lee of Walnut Creek, CA is a cosmetic surgeon who provides a wide selection of surgical treatments at her dermatology practice. At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, patients have access to a variety of solutions that can be used to enhance the skin while addressing medical issues as well. With general, medical, and cosmetic dermatology solutions under one roof, patients know they are receiving the best possible care and attention with their dermatologist.

What is a cosmetic surgeon and what do she do?

What is a cosmetic surgeon A cosmetic surgeon is a trained and experienced dermatologist who has the ability to provide surgical treatments to patients for aesthetic purposes. There are a wide variety of surgical dermatology treatments that can be performed for patients in our practice, and they include the following:
  • Scar revision – when patients have scarring on their bodies, either from a past surgery or from trauma to the area, they can speak to Dr. Christine Lee about reducing the appearance of scars with either carbon dioxide treatments or laser therapies.
  • Suspension mid-facelift – to address sagging skin and the development of fine lines and wrinkles, many patients will benefit from a suspension mid-facelift, sometimes referred to as a MACS-Lift. This procedure has less recovery time than a full surgical facelift and provides amazing results!
  • Neck lift – when the jaw line and jowls are troublesome, patients can ask their dermatologist about the advantages of having a neck lift performed. This procedure focuses on improving and tightening the jaw line and is a minimally invasive procedure.
  • Ear reshaping – also known as an otoplasty, patients who are unhappy with the balance and shape of their ear can undergo ear reshaping procedures with Dr. Christine Lee.
  • Skin resurfacing – when the skin texture and tone is dull or aging, many patients turn to skin resurfacing treatment to enjoy a more attractive appearance. This may include solutions such as chemical peels or dermabrasion.
  • Removal of skin lesions/moles – patients who have skin growths that may indicate the possibility of cancer—or patients who have moles or lesions that are unattractive and appear in highly visible areas—can contact The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to learn more about the advantages of excision and removal. For areas where cancer may be a concern, a biopsy may be performed first.

What treatment is right for me?

During the initial consultation appointment, patients can speak to Dr. Christine Lee about the specific areas of the body that concern them. Then, the dermatologist will evaluate the skin and body and provide recommended solutions. Not all patients are appropriate candidates for cosmetic surgeries, so it is best to consult with a professional and learn more about each treatment to make an educated decision in regard to what is most appropriate. Some patients may find that there are other noninvasive ways of addressing their specific concerns and may choose to move forward with these nonsurgical alternatives. Either way, our dermatological team can walk patients through the process of enhancing their skin and body.

Can I combine treatments?

Surgical dermatology treatment Yes! Many of our treatments can be combined with other solutions to provide amazing results. We encourage patients to take the time to learn about all of their options and decide if combination services are best. A good example of combination treatment and improved results is the use of skin resurfacing with cosmetic injectables. Patients combating the signs of aging can benefit from skin resurfacing while also addressing specific lines and wrinkles with volume-improving injectables used underneath the surface of the skin. By performing both services, patients see faster results and enjoy longer-lasting improvement than if they choose one solution alone. This combination service is often desirable for many of our patients who consult with us regarding cosmetic treatments.
