    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

California dermatologist describes laser tattoo removal

At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in California, we have seen many patients come through our practice interested in tattoo removal. It used to be that tattoos were permanent. Nothing could take them off the skin. However, with improved technologies, medical professionals have been able to find a way to break down the inks used in tattoos with laser therapy.

Laser tattoo removal has become increasingly popular as patients realize how treatment can dramatically change their confidence and appearance. Patients who have tattoos on their body that are embarrassing, poorly done, or located in areas that may affect their career choices are excited to learn that they can have them removed with laser therapy. Laser treatment is provided to break down the ink pigmentations used to create the tattoo and help the body absorb them providing for a clean, fresh area of skin once again! Patients are excited to live their life without painful or embarrassing reminders of the past.

Patients must first consult with Dr. Christine Lee to determine candidacy for treatment. Laser tattoo removal does require patients to schedule several sessions. This allows for the gradual reduction of the tattoo. Some tattoos may require more treatments than others. The factors that contribute to more treatment sessions include higher quality inks, length of time the tattoo has been on the skin, the color of the patient’s skin, and the color of the inks used in the tattoo design. The size of the tattoo may also require several treatments to perform in “sections” for improved comfort.

If you live in or around the Walnut Creek community and you are interested in permanently removing a tattoo on the body without harming the surrounding skin, now is a great time to book an appointment. Dr. Christine Lee and her team of professionals at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute are here to assist patients in looking and feeling better about the way they look and achieve a more attractive appearance. For many, this means removing tattoos that may be holding them back in personal and business relationships, or causing them to feel embarrassed about the way they look.
