    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

Walnut Creek, CA dermatologist describes laser hair removal services


By

Many Walnut Creek, CA area patients who are tired of waxing, plucking, depilatory creams, and shaving are often interested in learning about alternative ways to address unwanted hair on the face and body. Dr. M. Christine Lee and her team of professionals at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute are available to help individuals in achieving hairless skin on a permanent level. She describes to her patients the benefits of laser hair removal services which are available in her state-of-the-art dermatological practice.

Understanding laser hair removal


When patients think of laser hair removal, they sometimes believe that it is a single appointment that permanently wipes out unwanted hair on the body. Unfortunately, this is not exactly how the procedure works. Instead, it is a series of procedures that slowly reduces the amount of hair in the treatment area. The more sessions patients obtain the less hair that is produced in that area. This is because the laser device used for laser hair removal can only address hair follicles that are in the active growth phase of the entire hair follicle cycle. This happens at different times for different follicles, so by treating every four to six weeks for approximately six sessions, patients will be able to achieve almost full elimination of hair in the area being treated. Each treatment reduces the hair in the area until it is successfully eliminated. This is not a “one and done” treatment, and Dr. M. Christine Lee reiterates this to patients, so they can fully understand what to expect.

After each laser hair removal treatment, hair follicles release hair. These hairs will no longer reappear as the follicle itself is damaged. This means that once done, patients experience permanent hair loss in the area and will never again have to deal with shaving or waxing!

Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?


In the past, laser hair removal only worked on patients with fairer skin types and darker hair. This was because the lasers were not developed enough to understand which areas to treat unless there was an area of high contrast. Now, with continued advancements in laser technology, patients of all skin types and colors are able to have this treatment performed. We do recommend, however, that patients who have tanned skin avoid treatment until their tan fades, as the melanin levels in the tanned skin can result in unwanted burning from the laser device. This is important and is addressed during a patient’s initial consultation appointment with our team.

What to expect from laser hair removal?

Here are the steps taken for patients during the process of laser hair removal
  • Before treatments start, patients have an initial evaluation and consultation visit with Dr. M. Christine Lee to determine candidacy and discuss the process.
  • The session begins with the application of a topical anesthetic to help make patients more comfortable during their procedure.
  • A small laser-emitting device is used on the treatment area and some patients experience a slight “snapping” sensation along with a sound.
  • The entire area is treated, and then patients are given aftercare instructions by their dermatologist to follow.
  • Over the course of several days following their laser hair removal treatment, patients can expect to see hair coming out of the area and easily brushed away. These are the hair follicles that were effectively treated during the last session and will never come back!
  • Patients book their appointments several weeks apart and over the course of time, will enjoy full and permanent hair removal in the treatment area.

How much does laser hair removal cost?
