    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

One of the best skincare dermatologists in the Lafayette area describes psoriasis and treatment options available

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute of the Lafayette area is very familiar with a common dermatological condition called psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition, and at this time, there is no known cure. Patients who suffer from psoriasis (which is not contagious) often seek the assistance of one of the best skincare dermatologists in the Lafayette area for proper, effective treatment and control of this condition.

Psoriasis is often seen as large areas of red, scaly skin. This is actually a buildup of skin cells triggered by excessive skin cell growth. This is caused by the immune system sending out signals to the skin to grow more skin cells, resulting in the appearance of psoriasis patches anywhere on the body.

For proper treatment, Dr. Christine Lee will first determine the type of psoriasis, including:
  • Plaque
  • Inverse
  • Guttate
  • Pustular
  • Erythrodermic
Plaque psoriasis is the most common and it is rare for dermatologists to see patients with erythrodermic psoriasis. In fact, this form of psoriasis can be life threatening and patients who have been diagnosed are encouraged to seek immediate treatment.

Although psoriasis can develop anywhere on the body, most patients notice it developing on the scalp, face, elbows, knees, hands and feet. This encourages many patients to seek treatment, especially when psoriasis develops on areas of the body that cannot be covered. Treatment varies depending on the type of psoriasis present and the severity. Most patients may benefit from topical therapies, while others may require oral medications or even phototherapy. A quality dermatologist such as Dr. Christine Lee can work with patients to achieve a diagnosis and determine the most appropriate and effective solution for their condition.

Dr. Christine Lee of the Lafayette area is proud to offer a wide range of treatments for conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, and other skin concerns. Her state of the art facility offers patients a variety of ways to address problematic skin while improving self-confidence. She provides medical, surgical, laser and cosmetic dermatology procedures for new and existing patients. Her team is dedicated to helping patients improve their appearance and address troublesome conditions, and works hard to ensure individuals feel more confident and happy in their own skin.
