    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

East Bay area dermatologist explains laser resurfacing treatment and the benefits it provides

Dr. Christine Lee of the East Bay area provides a variety of treatment for patients who want to improve their skin and body. With a wide range of services, patients find that she is able to assist with nearly any dermatological concern. Patients who want to fight the signs of aging and improve their skin may ask her about laser resurfacing treatments.

Laser resurfacing treatments are done to improve the skin’s appearance. It may reduce noticeable changes in the skin or address minor flaws and imperfections. It is typically performed on the face with an ablative or non-ablative laser, depending on the patient’s needs and desires. Many patients can have this treatment completed with little to no recovery time while seeing dramatic results.

Patients who want to address the overall appearance of their skin, including texture and tone, may benefit from fractional laser resurfacing. It can assist with:
  • Scarring
  • Damage caused by sun exposure
  • Evening the skin’s tone and texture
  • Reducing the appearance of age spots, liver spots, and sun spots
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
During laser resurfacing, patients are often given a local anesthetic to numb the skin to ensure their comfort. A device is used across the area that delivers laser energy. There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative. Non-ablative laser energy treats the skin in a less aggressive way, and typically requires less downtime than ablative laser treatments. Patients may experience some redness and swelling for approximately 24 hours after their treatment, but this is minor and goes away quickly. Ablative treatments may require up to a week of downtime as it can result in blistering and require more attentive skin care regimens afterwards.

Dr. Christine Lee of the Walnut Creek area has a wide variety of lasers available in her practice and can help patients choose the one best for their skin care needs. At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, we focus on ensuring patients see the results they want with a treatment they can afford.
