    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

Pleasant Hill dermatologist describes how to remove tattoos

Patients who have had tattoos and have regretted them are often curious to know how to remove them. When patients in the Pleasant Hill, CA area come to Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute asking about tattoo removal, they are often introduced to the advantages of laser tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal is becoming increasingly popular in dermatological practices across the United States. When this technique for removing tattoos first came out, it was only capable of removing very dark, low quality inks. However, laser technology continues to advance and now Dr. Christine Lee has the ability to remove tattoos from the body, regardless of size, color, and quality. Patients who are beginning to regret their unsightly tattoos due to the image, memories, or placement are now able to remove them from their skin in a permanent yet safe manner.

Laser tattoo removal may require several sessions for optimum results. In fact, most patients will benefit from at least three treatments spaced apart several weeks. More difficult colorations or higher quality inks may require more treatments to eliminate them from the skin. The treatment is relatively comfortable and patients can have topical anesthetics beforehand to reduce any discomfort they may experience. Patients who have the procedure done often describe the feeling as that of a small rubber band “snapping” the skin. It is tolerable and many patients are able to handle it without any concerns. With laser tattoo removal, patients also get to enjoy no downtime, scarring, or any other complications from this treatment making it highly desirable.

At East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center, Inc., we believe in providing some of the most advanced treatments for our patients. Dr. Christine Lee uses over 40 lasers in her practice and continues to educate herself on new and promising treatments for skin health and appearance. Laser tattoo removal has helped many patients eliminate unwanted tattoos forever.

If you live in or around the Pleasant Hill community and have considered options for removing tattoos, contact Dr. Christine Lee today to schedule a consultation visit and learn more about the amazing technology available to address tattoo ink in the skin while maintaining the upper layers.
