    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

Bay area patients discover the CO2 laser for skin resurfacing

Posted by

Co2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Bay Area - Article Image at The East Bay Laser & Skin Care Center
As the author of “The Best Skin Ever: Lasers” and a laser and scientific committee advisor, Dr. Christine Lee excels in laser procedures. At The East Bay Laser & Skin Care Center, Inc., Bay area patients are in the hands of one of the best physicians for fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing.

What is a CO2 laser?

A carbon dioxide (CO2) laser was one of the first gas lasers used, and is still the highest power continuous wave laser available. For skin resurfacing treatments, the laser removes the outermost layer of damaged skin to reveal the smoother, younger looking skin underneath. This laser produces effects similar to a chemical peel or microdermabrasion; however, skin is removed without the use of harsh chemicals or a sanding device.

Utilizing the Lumenis CO2 laser, Dr. Lee is equipped with advanced technology for fractional skin resurfacing. While being powerful, it is also one of the safest lasers available. The Lumenis laser utilizes short pulses of heat combined with a cooling sensation for patient comfort and safety. A topical anesthetic can be used if needed.

Advantages of using a CO2 laser for resurfacing

Fractional lasers are gentle enough to treat the delicate skin around the eyes and mouth while powerful enough to treat thicker skin along the forehead and cheeks. CO2 lasers have been used to treat the following facial problem areas:
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Skin textural changes due to sun damage
  • Skin blotchiness
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Scars from trauma

At The East Bay Laser & Skin Care Center, Inc. in the Bay area, Dr. Christine Lee uses CO2 lasers to reverse the signs of aging. As an expert in lasers, you can trust you are in good hands. To schedule your comprehensive consultation with Dr. Lee, call (925) 500-1180.
