    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

Traditional and alternative liposuction techniques in Walnut Creek CA offer the best procedure for your needs


Liposuction Procedure Walnut Creek
Many patients maintain a healthy weight but struggle with pockets of fat that don’t shrink regardless of how they exercise or what they eat. As with other types of treatments at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, the liposuction procedure in Walnut Creek CA varies from patient to patient. Dr. Christine Lee and her team offer options beyond “standard” tumescent liposuction, which may be recommended depending on factors such as medical history, lifestyle, and personal preferences.

The lipo you may know

"Tumescent" liposuction refers to swelling and firmness, which is what happens to the treatment area during this traditional approach to localized fat reduction. This effect is achieved after Dr. Lee safely and precisely administers a sterile solution that causes blood vessels to constrict, resulting in targeted stiffening. The solution is also injected for utmost comfort during the procedure. A thin tube attached to a vacuum is placed under your skin, allowing Dr. Lee to suction out excess fat from the treatment site. Any fluids that are lost are replenished throughout the procedure.


Many skin centers in East Bay limit your options, but Dr. Lee may discuss other techniques with you. As a globally-recognized authority on laser technology, Dr. Lee offers laser-assisted liposuction. Instead of using a vacuum to suck out fat, the doctor uses a high-intensity light that targets areas such as your thighs, belly, and sides. The light liquefies fat for easy removal through a thin tube or cannula.

Similarly, ultrasound-assisted lipo involves applying ultrasonic energy or sound waves to the treatment site, which results in liquefied fat easily removed through a cannula.

You may enjoy benefits from these alternative approaches, including:
  • Sedation may be used instead of general anesthesia
  • Potentially less trauma to the treatment site
  • Can minimize risks of texture irregularities and other complications post-lipo

Dr. Lee needs to get to know you to know what's best for you. Call (925) 500-1180 to schedule your personalized consultation.
