    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

Potential complications of Restylane

Dermal fillers are compounds injected under the skin to fill out wrinkles and skin folds, and add fullness to the face and lips. Dramatic results are immediate!

Restylane is a unique injectable filler. The formulation contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your body's connective tissues. However, the hyaluronic acid in Restylane is not derived from animal sources, so there is little chance of allergic reaction.

Are you considering Restylane treatments in East Bay for improvement in the appearance of mild to moderate, even deep facial folds and creases? For results that last up to 18 months? Call The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek for a consultation with Dr. M. Christine Lee.

During your consultation, Dr. Lee will explain that, as with any medical treatment, there are potential complications. These are rare, mild, and temporary, but contact Dr. Lee if they last more than 24 hours:
  • Minor itching or burning sensation.
  • Swelling or fullness in the area of treatment.
  • Slight bruising or discoloration at the injection site.
  • Small bumps under the skin.
  • Drooping near the mouth.

If you are pregnant or breast feeding, allergic to anesthesia, have a blood disorder, or taking radiation or chemotherapy treatments, you may not be a good candidate for Restylane now. You may need to wait until a skin condition such as cold sores, rash, or acne, has cleared up before starting Restylane.

You can prepare for a comfortable Restylane experience by avoiding aspirin, vitamin E supplements, and anti-inflammatory medications for 24 hours before your treatment (they can cause bruising or bleeding). Use anti-viral cream around your mouth if you will have injections there (to prevent cold sores). Request topical anesthetic if your skin is very sensitive.

You can resume normal activity after treatment, but plan to take it a bit easy and keep your face relaxed overnight. Cool compresses will soothe temporary post-injection irritation.

Residents of East Bay and Walnut Creek have never looked fresher! Call to schedule your Restylane program.
