    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

Treatment for unwanted tattoos available in Walnut Creek, CA with safe laser removal


Walnut Creek, CA area patients interested in safe and effective tattoo removal are welcome to learn about an effective treatment that utilizes amazing laser energy to achieve just that! Dr. M. Christine Lee and her team of professionals at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute welcome patients in the community who are interested in tattoo removal versus traditional coverup tattoos often recommended.

Tired of that tattoo?

While tattoos are permanent, there are ways to remove them using today’s laser technology. Some tattoos remind patients of a person or a memory they would rather not remember. Or, perhaps they regret getting the tattoo in the first place. In some cases, patients want to have extremely noticeable tattoos removed from very visible areas of the face or body for personal or professional reasons. Whatever the cause, it is important for patients to talk with Dr. M. Christine Lee about safe removal using laser solutions.

Understanding laser removal

It is critical that patients fully understand laser removal and how it can safely fade a tattoo. It is not a “once and done” procedure. Instead, laser tattoo removal requires a commitment to regular treatment sessions in order to fully treat the skin and reduce the tattoo as effectively as possible. There are many factors that need to be considered when it comes to how many treatment sessions are needed, including:
  • How long the tattoo has been in the skin
  • The overall size of the tattoo
  • The depth and quality of the tattoo ink used
  • The colors of the ink utilized, with some colors requiring more sessions
  • The patient’s natural skin color

During an initial consultation appointment, Dr. M. Christine Lee will evaluate the area and offer an estimated number of treatments to effectively remove the tattoo.

At this time, the doctor will also describe how the laser works. The laser light from the device will target the ink within the skin, breaking it down. The body then absorbs the ink and it is safely eliminated. With each treatment, patients will notice continued fading of their tattoo. Patients are advised that this treatment can take some time, but laser removal is the only effective and safe method. It eliminates the need for patients to consider coverup tattoos as an alternative when they ultimately just want the tattoo gone from their skin.

Who is a candidate?

How long does it take?

Because each patient’s skin reacts differently to treatment, it can be difficult for the doctor to provide an accurate idea of how many treatments are needed. It is best that patients understand the range of treatment sessions that may be needed so they have a generalized idea of the cost and time frame to achieve full removal.

What to expect during appointments

Patients hear of laser skin treatments and they may worry about how the treatments will feel. With laser light energy, many patients will experience a snapping sensation on the skin as the laser works. This may be mildly uncomfortable for some patients, but most are able to undergo treatment without topical anesthetics. Patients relax while the laser device is used on the skin and will be given aftercare instructions by their doctor when they leave the office. No downtime is needed, so patients can go about their daily lifestyle without any interruptions, while noticing continued fading after each treatment session.
