    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

Importance of a top skincare dermatologist in the Bay Area, CA for skin cancer screenings

Skin cancer is a serious concern. Thankfully, if diagnosed early, it can be successfully treated. In order to do so, it requires patients and doctors to have diligence in closely observing suspicious skin tags, moles, and sores on the skin. Any of these may be an indication that skin cancer is developing.

Everyone should undergo a skin cancer screening with a dermatologist at least once every year. At this appointment, one of the top skincare dermatologists in the Bay Area, CA, Dr. Christine Lee, can examine the skin over the entire body to check for any unusual changes or skin developments. If Dr. Christine Lee locates anything abnormal, a biopsy can be done to check for cancer and necessary treatments are provided to remove it before the cancer spreads.

A biopsy is a test that is done on samples of the skin to evaluate them for any unusual skin cells or signs of cancer. When biopsies show positive results, patients will speak with Dr. Christine Lee about scheduling an excision of the cancerous cells. Most often, doctors will suggest Mohs micrographic Surgery. This method of removing cancerous cells is deemed the most effective and can be done without removing healthy skin cells around the area.

Patients who have been diagnosed with skin cancer or who are interested in learning how to reduce their risk are educated on protecting their skin. The biggest concern is ultraviolet rays. Patients should avoid tanning beds and use sunscreen regularly to prevent the sun from damaging the skin and resulting in cancerous skin cells. During the middle of the day, the sun's rays are the strongest, so protective clothing and sunscreen should be used during this time if patients are outdoors. Patients should always maintain an annual skin check with Dr. Christine Lee to be proactive about the condition and achieve an early diagnosis for their health and wellbeing.

Patients in and around the Bay Area in California who are interested in undergoing an annual skin cancer screening, or for those who have noticed changes in moles, skin tags, and other skin lesions, Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is happy to provide new and existing patients with an examination.
