    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

Where to get fractional laser & resurfacing in California

The use of fractional lasers in dermatology is a progressive method of skin rejuvenation. You may also hear this process called fractional photothermolysis. "Fractional" simply means a small amount, and the word "photothermolysis" is literally derived from "light, heat, destruction." Thus, a fractional laser directs a specific wavelength of light to a very defined area, at a microscopic level. As the light is absorbed, the energy produces enough heat to destroy the target, leaving surrounding tissue untouched.

You've probably seen a digital photograph enlarged to the point where the individual pixels become noticeable. Imagine this technology as a laser so advanced that it can treat individual pixels. Only those problematic skin cells are destroyed, so recovery time is greatly reduced. As the body naturally replaces the targeted cells with fresh, healthy ones, your beautiful new complexion emerges.

Under the care of a qualified, board certified dermatologist like Dr. M. Christine Lee, fractional laser resurfacing can be an ideal choice for treating a variety of skin conditions:
  • Acne scars.
  • Melasma – discoloration that often occurs during pregnancy.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
  • Freckles, sun damage, and age spots.
  • Rough texture or uneven skin tone.
  • Enlarged pores and some types of birthmarks.
A number of practitioners in California are now offering this technique. Before you undergo laser-resurfacing, take some time to be sure you are in good hands. Find out if the treatment is administered by a technician or by the doctor. Ask what special training the doctor has had, and if he or she is certified by the American Board of Dermatology. Look into what lasers the facility utilizes, and how much experience the doctor has in using each type. Ask for frank information on how the procedure is done, aftercare, and possible complications.

Then call The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute and ask the same questions. You'll be hard pressed to find a dermatologist whose laser expertise matches Dr. Lee's. She is heavily involved in laser research. She has pioneered new techniques and improvements in the use of lasers in dermatology. Dr. Lee lectures and teaches other dermatologists from all over the world. Her proficiency is complimented by a state-of-the art facility and a caring staff.

It's your skin and your face. Trust your fresh new look to an expert in fractional laser resurfacing. Call The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today.
