    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

About Dr. Lee
Dr.Christine Lee
Min-Wei Christine Lee, M.D., M.P.H. is Board-certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and further sub-specialized by completing a distinguished fellowship in Laser Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Mohs Micrographic Surgery/Skin Cancer/Facial Plastic Reconstruction, and Advanced Dermatologic Surgery from University of California, San Francisco.

Walnut Creek area dermatologist offers mole removal and other cosmetic surgeries

Many patients, including both men and women, have skin imperfections. Some have these imperfections in highly visible areas: the face, hands, or neck. When patients have skin growth or tags that are in embarrassing areas of the body, they may want to seek the help of a board certified dermatologist to consider removal.

Dr. Christine Lee is a board certified dermatologist at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in the Walnut Creek area, and offers everything from skin tag to mole removal. She may suggest simple excision in order to remove the mole and reduce the scaring left behind.

Mole removal is often done as a cosmetic procedure. This surgery is fast and simple, and requires very little time for healing. The mole is removed, the area is sutured, and patients can return back to the dermatology office for a follow-up appointment. Many patients are glad to have their unsightly moles removed.

There are some times when mole removal may be more complex. This is often if patients are undergoing a biopsy or need to have the mole removed due to skin cancer. Dr. Christine Lee will examine the mole and, if she believes there are concerns of cancerous cells, she will biopsy and remove accordingly. However, if the mole is benign and just simple a cosmetic concern, removal will be simple.

Patients who have a lot of moles naturally on their body are encouraged to have regular skin cancer screenings. Changes in moles are often an indication of cancerous cells and should be examined with a biopsy to check for more serious issues. Changes may include size, color, and shape.

If you live in or around the Walnut Creek area and are interested in learning more about mole removal and other cosmetic surgery procedures available at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, contact Dr. Christine Lee today. She can assess the situation and make a recommendation based on her knowledge and expertise. She is dedicated to helping patients in and around the community with their skin, hair, and nail concerns, while improving self-confidence and aesthetics.
