    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

A photofacial procedure may be what the doctor in Walnut Creek orders to refresh a tired appearance


Photofacial Procedure Walnut Creek
Sun damage comes in many types and forms. Lucky for this sun-worshiping part of the country, there are options to repair what ultraviolet light took away: even tone, a radiant complexion, and soft texture. One of the most effective methods to combat these effects is with, of all things, light. As a globally-known educator and authority on laser- and light-based treatments, Dr. Christine Lee and her team at The Skin and Laser Institute provide the best place to benefit from the latest effective technology. The photofacial procedure in Walnut Creek CA involves the use of advanced devices, such as Intense Pulsed Light, to transform the look, feel, and health of your skin.

Using light to restore healthy skin

While photofacials aren’t synonymous with IPL, many use this technology for good reason. Similarly to lasers, the IPL device is directed to the treatment site. High-intensity pulses of light precisely target areas of discoloration, such as age spots, birthmarks, broken capillaries, or rosacea patches. Since IPL emits a broad-spectrum light, it rejuvenates dull, lackluster, and “tired” skin. Many patients “awaken” their overall complexion after several treatments. One of the benefits of light-based treatments is their ability to produce energy that stimulates the production of fresh collagen below the skin’s surface.

In Dr. Lee’s and her professional team’s hands, the usual side effects from treatment such as swelling and discomfort are minimized. IPL photofacials are safe and well-tolerated enough that Dr. Lee may recommend combining them with other light-based technologies such as laser devices, or with other types of nonsurgical therapies like Exilis, which uses controlled heat from radiofrequency energy to improve sun damaged-skin and signs of aging. Customized treatment plans are designed to get optimal results. The specific treatments and number of sessions required to achieve your goals depend on factors such as:
  • Skin tone
  • Extent and type of damage
  • Existing medications and medical conditions
