There are a variety of laser resurfacing options when it comes to treating common skin disorders and reducing the signs of aging. Dr. Lee is UCSF fellowship trained in all the most advanced laser procedures, and offers a variety of treatments for her patients.
One such treatment is the LaserLite Facial. Dr. M. Christine Lee is a leading pioneer of non-invasive, non-ablative, no downtime laser rejuvenation of the skin. Dr. Lee is the inventor of the dual KTP & Nd:YAG combination procedure – The LaserLite Facial! She published the first clinical studies and went on to travel the globe training physicians in this exciting and effective procedure.
The dual laser procedure is highly effective for treating age and sun spots, visible pigmentation problems, rosacea, facial veins, and acne. The laser treatments also promote collagen stimulation and skin toning and tightening of light wrinkles and fine lines.
The LaserLite Facial stimulates collagen production through a process called collagen remodeling. A person’s natural collagen starts to thin out gradually over time due to aging processes and is accelerated greatly by long-term sun exposure. Many non-invasive lasers help to stimulate the skin’s own ability to form new collagen which promotes improved texture, tone, and firming of the skin. Regular treatments with these lasers help to slow down the aging process, and allow individuals to experience younger, healthier, and more radiant skin.
More effective than IPL (intense pulsed light–also known as “Fotofacial”) or pulsed dye laser (PDL) treatments, the LaserLite Facial can be used to treat any part of the body – neck, chest, hands, etc. Dr. Lee worked with the engineers at Laserscope in the development of the Gemini laser (dual KTP & Nd:YAG lasers). The Gemini laser has become the gold standard in the industry for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions.
