    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

Bay Area patients ask, do fillers work for acne scars?

When patients are dealing with acne, they often turn to a board certified dermatologist in the Bay Area such as Dr. Christine Lee. Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is committed to assisting patients in the community with their skin care concerns. She provides both medical and cosmetic services to those who are ready to take action against problems such as acne or acne scarring. Patients with acne scarring may be unhappy with the tell-tale signs that linger long after their active acne has stopped. When individuals want to address acne scars, they may benefit from dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers, also known as injectable fillers, are made of a protein called hyaluronic acid that attracts water and adds volume where injected. This includes fine lines and wrinkles on the face. By injecting these fillers, patients will be able to enjoy instant rejuvenation of their appearance. This is done by reducing the depth of the wrinkles and smoothing out the overall texture of the face.

But many patients ask, do dermal fillers work for acne scars? Very deep, pitted scars may be improved with injectable fillers. Patients may find that they can even out the texture of the skin and make the scars look much less noticeable. This can be a dramatic change for patients who once though they were left with scarring for life and were unable to enhance the appearance of their face. However, patients must first have their active acne under control before considering restoring their appearance with a treatment such as this.

Fillers for acne scarring will not last forever, and patients will need to follow-up with their dermatologist for injections every few months to maintain the results. However, this is a less invasive and more affordable option than any surgical procedure that may be performed to combat this issue as well.

Interested in learning more about how dermal fillers can reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as acne scars? Schedule an appointment with Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today. We welcome all patients in the Bay Area for cosmetic and medical dermatology solutions.
