    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

What is the Thermage procedure like, and how can Lafayette patients improve their appearance with Thermage treatments?

The signs of aging can affect men and women who want to look and feel more youthful. Not everyone was born with the genetics to “age gracefully,” and when sagging, wrinkled skin begins to appear, many patients feel extremely self-conscious about their appearance. Thankfully, plastic surgery is not the only option anymore. With advances in medical technologies, patients are beginning to enjoy the benefits of treatments such as the Thermage procedure in the Lafayette area.

Thermage is a non-invasive treatment that can help in improving the body. Patients can receive this treatment for skin tightening, body contouring, collagen production, and the reduction of cellulite. Combined, all of these improvements can make a dramatic transformation on nearly any part of the body. Thermage is typically used on areas such as the:
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
In just one treatment, patients notice improved results with smoother skin and the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite. Several treatments are necessary for optimum results, and the improvements continue over the course of time. Many patients experience results for months after their final treatment.

This treatment does not require incisions. Instead, it uses radio-frequency technology that provides volumetric heating to penetrate deep down underneath the upper layer of skin to tighten and lift. The upper layer is cooled for comfort, while the deeper layers of the dermis are heated.

Dr. Christine Lee of the Lafayette area’s The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers the Thermage procedure for patients who have been unable to achieve successful results with alternative treatments. With her experience in using lasers and other technologically advanced devices, patients can enjoy quality results that are well above their expectations.

Patients interested in learning about Thermage can visit Dr. Christine Lee, of TThe Skin and Laser Treatment Institute for a consultation. Patients are encouraged to schedule an appointment with her team of professionals to find out if Thermage is the best way for them to turn back the hands of time!
