    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

Walnut Creek residents ask, “Why should I take my teen to a dermatologist in my area?”

Acne can bring frustration and embarrassment to your teen. He or she may feel as though every cleanser, scrub, or spot treatment has been tried. Unfortunately, they do not work for everyone or every skin type. You are left wondering, “where can I find a dermatologist in my area?” Located in Walnut Creek, Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers acne solutions for teenagers and adults.

Who gets acne?

Nearly eight out of ten teenagers get acne. Because it is so common, acne is considered a normal part of growing up. It is triggered by hormonal changes that occur during puberty. Acne can appear as whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, or pimples.

The most common types of acne needing the attention of a dermatologist are as follows:
  • Recurrent acne is more than a normal breakout. It keeps showing up, and lasts two weeks or more.
  • Milia are pores that usually become clogged from improper facial care. They look like whiteheads but refuse to open.
  • Cystic acne is large, painful bumps on the skin.
  • Acne scars often arise from picking or squeezing pimples.
  • Skin redness, or rosacea, is often mistaken for acne but should be treated by a dermatologist.

Don’t pop pimples!

The key point to remember with acne is not to pop or pick at breakouts. This damages skin and allows bacteria to enter. Scars can form or infection may occur. Once the skin is damaged to a point where it cannot repair itself, scars are harder to treat.

Even if you do not have acne, visiting a dermatologist once per year is a healthy habit. Skin problems go beyond acne breakouts. Annual skin checks help catch and address abnormal skin changes early. Contact The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today at 925-500-1180.
