    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

From fine lines to acne scars, a range of conditions are treated with laser resurfacing to reveal healthier-looking skin

Benefits Of Skin Resurfacing Walnut Creek - Benefits Of Skin ResurfacingAre you familiar with the term “skin resurfacing”? All approaches to resurfacing intentionally damage the skin in a controlled manner. The resulting injury makes way for a rejuvenated appearance as new, healthy skin grows back. The technique is low-risk, because it occurs in a professional setting and in the hands of Dr. Lee and a team so recognized for their expertise that patients travel the world to visit them.

Traditionally, skin could be resurfaced with dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser therapies.

Dermabrasion involves mechanically abrading the skin to slough off damaged tissues. The controlled application of customized chemical solutions also abrades damaged tissues.

Lasers have seeming boundless medical applications. In dermatology laser procedures provide noninvasive ways to treat a number of concerns, including:
  • Fine creases
  • Deeper furrows
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Scarring
  • Warts
CO2 or carbon dioxide lasers are a well-established way to treat benign and malignant growths. The “latest generation” CO2 laser uses short pulses of light energy.

Laser devices eliminate skin in the target treatment area while leaving the surrounding, healthy tissue untouched. The heat safely affects underlying areas and layers that give structure to the skin. It can also stimulate the production of firming collagen protein, so you can enjoy skin tightening benefits along with spot correction and other improvements.

CO2 lasers may also use continuous beams of light in a scanning pattern. These “fractional” procedures create small holes in the treatment area. As the area heals, the production of collagen fills in the areas between those holes, resulting in tighter and younger skin.

Dr. Lee uses the Lumenis CO2 laser to perform the most popular ActiveFX, DeepFX, and TotalFX for a range of problems from fine lines on the upper layers of skin to deeper wrinkles and scars. Lumenis CO2 represents one of more than 40 lasers offered by The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute

Like other types of procedures, the length of each treatment session and associated downtime depends on the case, such as where the laser is used and the device’s setting. Recommendations for resurfacing depend on each patient’s needs, including the problem to be treated, the severity of that problem, and patient skin health and overall health.

There are many benefits of skin resurfacing in Walnut Creek. Discover these benefits firsthand by partnering with an internationally-recognized laser expert and inventor: Dr. Christine Lee. Schedule a consultation by calling (925) 500-1180.
