    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 fractional laser and resurfacing treatment in Walnut Creek, CA?

Fractional laser resurfacing is a rejuvenating treatment that produces amazing results. The results are similar to a deep chemical peel but without the downtime. The fractional laser is also less invasive than the traditional CO2 laser. This is due to the fact that the fractional laser uses tiny beams of light to heat up the deeper layers of skin to help stimulate collagen production. This treatment is provided in several sessions to lessen the temporary damage and to promote faster healing.

Fractional laser resurfacing can be used to improve many signs of aging as well as acne and scaring. This precise laser is able to treat damaged areas of the skin while leaving other areas untreated. This type of treatment is sometimes referred to as bridge therapy. The approach is less painful, heals faster and still provides the desired results.

Fractional laser resurfacing treatment is non-ablative which means it does not break the skin. When you come in for your procedure we will start by cleansing the area to be treated. You will be asked to wear goggles to protect your eyes. Then Dr. Lee will pass the hand piece over the desired treatment areas. It will typically take three passes over each area to achieve the desired results. After fractional laser and resurfacing in Walnut Creek, CA, you can expect the treated areas to be swollen and red. It will be similar to what you might feel if you were sunburned. We can provide a topical anesthetic if needed to make you more comfortable during the procedure.

After your fractional laser and resurfacing treatment in Walnut Creek, CA, you will experience some swelling and redness for a few days. Ice packs can be used to help alleviate any discomfort. Peeling of the skin is normal and you should not pick at it. This is your skin's healing process at work.

Some visible results are immediate and as you heal, new collagen is produced for six months to a year. During this time, brand new healthy, radiant, more youthful skin will emerge. You will see that the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and even deep frown lines will improve. You will also see improvement in the appearance of skin tone, scars and the texture of your skin. Brown spots and dark areas will fade.

As a leading expert on C02 and fractional laser resurfacing, you can trust Dr. Lee to give you the results you desire. She has worked on FDA studies and is highly sought after for her knowledge of laser skin resurfacing. She works with scientific committees and laser companies to improve technology and she has written a book titled "The Best Skin Ever: Lasers."

If you are looking for a way to restore your skin to a more healthy and youthful appearance, don't wait. Call Dr. Lee and find out how fractional laser and resurfacing in Walnut Creek, CA can help you.
