    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

Learn about the advantages of noninvasive treatments such as dermal fillers in Walnut Creek, CA area practice


Patients in Walnut Creek, CA who notice fine lines and wrinkles on their face may feel as though they have no options available to them when it comes to combating the signs of aging. Aging is a natural process everyone goes through. However, when the natural loss of collagen and elastin causes fine lines and wrinkles to develop, this doesn’t mean we have to succumb to these changes. With non-invasive treatment using dermal fillers, patients can enjoy the advantages of dermatological services developed to cater to patients who want to maintain their youthful look just a little longer without having to undergo invasive plastic surgeries. Dermal fillers are a wonderful option for many of our patients who have specific areas of concern they want to address to slow the aging process.

What are dermal fillers?

Dr. M. Christine Lee is a board-certified dermatologist who is excited to offer dermal fillers for her patients. Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid injectables that are used for cosmetic purposes only. This elective procedure allows patients to immediately inject specialized gels into wrinkles and folds to smooth their skin and look years younger in just one visit! Dermal fillers are:
  • Safe
  • Affordable
  • Effective
  • FDA-approved
  • Long-lasting
  • Reinjectable

What is the process of receiving a dermal filler?

Dr. M. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek, CA The first step in determining if dermal fillers can be used is to attend a consultation appointment with Dr. M. Christine Lee. She takes this time to assess the skin and decide if dermal fillers are the best option for an individual. Patients with mild to moderate aging skin who are over the age of 20 are often considered the best candidates. More severe cases of wrinkles and folds may still require surgical intervention, but many of our patients can use dermal fillers to delay this need for many years. Patients let their dermatologist know what areas of concern they have, and our dermatologist will decide which dermal filler is best for that specific areas. Some are better suited for some areas while others may be best in alternative areas. Dermal fillers may also be combined together for better results.
Once patients have consulted with our team and have determined that dermal fillers are best for them, they relax in the treatment chair while the injections are completed. Injections are done right in the office with Dr. M. Christine Lee and take just a few minutes. The gels are administered directly into the areas of concern and immediately improve the appearance. Patients are given aftercare instructions and can leave the practice to go about their daily routine without interruption.

What are the side effects of dermal fillers?

Side effects are often short-term and last a day or two if they develop at all. Most patients will experience some redness and tenderness at the injection site, and this is nothing to be concerned about. It will go away on its own, along with any itching or discomfort. Some patients who have discomfort may take over-the-counter pain medication to address.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dr. M. Christine Lee and her team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek, CA Dermal fillers typically last several months before patients need reinjection. This depends on how much is injected into the treatment area and how well the body responds to the fillers. Most patients will enjoy their results for six to nine months, but this can vary from patient to patient. Dermal fillers can continually be used until patients need more dramatic treatments such as plastic surgery to combat their skin laxity.
