    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

Pleasant Hill area dermatologist explains fractional laser resurfacing

When the signs of aging and the texture of the skin begin to change, many patients visit their Pleasant Hill area dermatologist to learn about procedures that can assist in improving their skin. Many ask Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute about a treatment called fractional laser resurfacing.

Fractional laser resurfacing is a revolutionary way to rejuvenate specific areas of the skin such as the face. Lasers are used to treat skin at a microscopic level with heat. The laser energy is intense enough to target old skin cells and help stimulate the regrowth of new ones for a fresher, younger appearance.

Patients can choose between ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing. Non-ablative is less aggressive and requires less downtime (less than 24 hours). However, patients might need to have several treatments done for the same results as one ablative treatment. Ablative treatment results in more redness, swelling, peeling, and blistering, patients who undergo this procedure may need to schedule approximately one week of downtime for recovery. The skin needs to be treated after the procedure to ensure infection and other problems do not occur. However, once the skin has healed, it is much smoother and more toned than ever before!

Dr. Christine Lee of Walnut Creek has over 40 laser devices in her state-of-the-art facility, and provides a number of laser treatments for both men and women in her practice. She can consult with patients and examine their skin to give them a recommendation of the best treatment to improve the way they look. From addressing fine lines and wrinkles to reversing damage caused by sun exposure, Dr. Christine Lee has an effective treatment for every patient!

If you are considering dermatological services such as fractional laser resurfacing, call The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute serving the Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek community today. A consultation visit with Dr. Christine Lee can help you understand the various treatments available through her practice and determine the best one for your specific skin concerns.
