    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

Patients with range of concerns ask, "What dermatologist is near me in Walnut Creek?"

The motivation behind seeking out dermatologists; such as Dr. Christine Lee, may be cosmetic in nature, but dermatological expertise transcends the appearance of your skin. Dermatologists are trained to prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions affecting the skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes inside the mouth, nostrils, and eyelids. Medical and cosmetic motivations for treatment are closely intertwined.

When your skin is healthy, it shows

Common skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea appear as everything from tender bumps and itchy rashes to scaly patches and swelling. The dermatological professionals at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute have the tools and expertise to prevent flare-ups, manage symptoms, and treat these and many other conditions — to the tune of more than 3,000 different diseases.

Changes to the skin can betray underlying medical issues. For instance, melanoma skin cancer often presents itself as an evolving spot, sore, or mole. Changes to the shape, size, symmetry, color, and other features, such as bleeding and itching, are all red flags.

Many diseases have skin-related symptoms. Diabetics are more prone to infections, dryness, itching, and thickened and discolored areas. Autoimmune disorders like lupus are associated with a "butterfly" rash across the bridge of the nose and cheeks and other dermatological conditions, such as hair loss and sores inside the mouth and nose. Improved appearance is a nice side effect of treatment.

These conditions also underscore the importance of professional skin checks. Red flags for skin diseases and other medical conditions may be identified. Prompt intervention is critical when it comes to skin cancers; such as melanoma, which is largely treatable if detected early.

In addition to the services and treatments mentioned above, The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers a number of other procedures to address dermatological and medical conditions and cosmetic concerns. These services include:
  • Light- and laser-based therapies
  • Tattoo removal
  • Treatment for unwanted hair
  • Scar removal
  • Treatment for nail disease
  • Allergy testing
  • Injectable fillers
  • Non-surgical skin tightening
  • Non-invasive fat reduction
It's not enough to offer many services. How these services are delivered makes the difference. As an internationally recognized laser expert, Dr. Lee is asked to lecture on these and other technologies and has been responsible for advances in popular dermatological techniques.

As with other professional fields, every dermatologist is different. Arrive at Dr. Lee when you ask: "What dermatologist is near me in Walnut Creek?" Find out what sets her apart from other specialists in the Bay Area. Call (925) 500-1180 for consultations.
