    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

About Dr. Lee
Dr.Christine Lee
Min-Wei Christine Lee, M.D., M.P.H. is Board-certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and further sub-specialized by completing a distinguished fellowship in Laser Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Mohs Micrographic Surgery/Skin Cancer/Facial Plastic Reconstruction, and Advanced Dermatologic Surgery from University of California, San Francisco.

San Francisco Bay area dermatologist offers permanent laser removal of unwanted hair

Both men and women often experience the development of unwanted hair on their skin. It may be anywhere from the face to the legs. Some may want complete removal of this hair, while others may just want it to appear less thick. When patients are interested in hair reduction or removal, Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute may suggest a service known as laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal has come a long way over the years. Patients are able to enjoy the reduction of hair in a specific area of the body, and with several treatments, complete removal. The results are permanent, as the laser affects the hair follicle itself; damaging it so it cannot produce hair. Treatment can be done anywhere on the body, while the more common areas include the face, chest, back, underarms, bikini line, and legs.

Laser hair removal is a rather comfortable procedure. Patients will relax on our treatment table or chair with the treatment area exposed. A numbing cream will be applied to the skin to ensure comfort. Then the laser device is applied to the skin in passes, with the light pulsing to target the hair follicles. Some patients experience a slight tingling or snapping sensation; but, this is often not bothersome to individuals and tolerated well. Patients will notice after their treatment session that hair will begin to fall out. This is a good sign! The hair will be gradually reduced over time as patients come in for more sessions. The number of treatments needed for a particular area of the body will vary depending on many factors. Most patients can expect approximately 6-8 sessions total for full removal. These sessions are spaced weeks apart so the laser can target all the hair during the active growth cycle.

Dr. Christine Lee has over 40 laser devices in her practice in the San Francisco Bay area, and encourages her patients to learn about how these treatments can address blemishes and other imperfections of the skin and body. Contact The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to find out more about laser hair removal and other solutions available by our board certified dermatologist.
