    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

Get tighter skin and a more youthful appearance with non-surgical, laser skin rejuvenation in Walnut Creek

Skin Tightening Procedures Walnut Creek - Skin Tightening ProceduresYou may be familiar with lasers to remove unwanted hair and tattoos, or to reduce the appearance of brown spots and broken blood vessels. Laser technology is so versatile it can also be used to tighten skin. Lasers have a smoothing effect on lines and wrinkles and a firming effect on slack areas.

Many of the factors behind splotches and spots are the same forces to blame for textural irregularities and sagging skin. Years of unprotected sun exposure, smoking, and poor nutrition may appear as furrows, creases, and lax skin. Gravity and the normal aging process take a toll. In older age there is less of everything responsible for youthful appearance, from subcutaneous fat and collagen for plumpness, to elastin which gives skin its spring.

Excess skin and folds have met their match in the many laser devices Dr. Lee offers to maintain or restore a fresh face.

Noninvasive options


In the past, tightening skin may have been associated with going under the knife and drastic, invasive procedures. These procedures required time away from work or activities. Discomfort and possible complications presented undesirable side effects. Surgical interventions of the past didn’t always result in a natural appearance.

Lasers safely tighten the skin without a scalpel and without dramatically altering appearance. Thanks to modern approaches, “noninvasive” does not mean “ineffective.” Dr. Lee invented one of those approaches: the dual laser LaserLite Facial.

These lasers work well by using heat to jumpstart the production of collagen lost with time. The process of collagen remodeling ultimately results in tighter skin. Imaging is used to control the heat, so the procedure is safe and comfortable. Skin tightening temperatures are adjusted and monitored. The treatment area is heated to an effective level without damaging tissues.

Unlike invasive surgeries, many procedures can be completed in less than an hour. You can get right back to enjoying work and family activities in the days following treatment. There is little to no downtime.

Keep in mind that lax skin didn’t appear overnight. The results from collagen remodeling, are gradual. You will usually see results within weeks and full effects in months. LaserLite may be effectively and safely used on other areas of the body that can give away your chronological age, such as the neck and hands.

Other treatments use ultrasound and radiofrequency energy to tighten lax tissues. To find out more about your options for skin tightening procedures in Walnut Creek, call (925) 500-1180 to schedule a consultation at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute.
