    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

Walnut Creek dermatologist offers liposuction to suit all types of patients


wide range of liposuction procedures from best dermatologist in Walnut Creek
Dr. Christine Lee and her team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offer different types of liposuction for Walnut Creek area patients. both the common tumescent liposuction technique, and advanced approaches that use lasers and ultrasound.

Tumescent liposuction

This "breakthrough" method involves injecting a mix of epinephrine, salt water, and local anesthetic to numb and prepare the treatment site. This tumescent solution firms up the areas to be treated, so Dr. Lee can more easily and precisely remove fat suctioned out through a skinny tube or cannula attached to a vacuum. It’s long been considered the “accepted way” to shrink localized fat due, partly, to:
  • Minimal risks of blood loss
  • Reduced complications caused by shifts in fluid levels
  • Decreased risks of infection
  • Defects are magnified, reducing the need for a secondary procedure
  • Long-lasting anesthetic effect
  • No need for risky general anesthesia
You may be a suitable candidate for either Ultrasound or Laser-Assisted liposuction. These techniques use either ultrasonic or light-based energy to heat subcutaneous fat. The heat that is produced causes the fat cells to break up and melt. The fat is then suctioned out with a cannula in much the same way as tumescent liposuction. As with other ultrasonic- or light-based procedures, liposuction that uses these technologies is generally considered to be a gentle way to remove fat. This reputation comes from the use of very small cannulas and incisions, which further reduces the risk of scarring, and the targeting of only those fat cells and not muscle and nerve tissue for a very safe and precision approach. Should you gain weight, it’s also unlikely that fatty deposits will expand in treated areas.

Regardless of technique, your safety and satisfaction is paramount at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Schedule an appointment to start the process. Call (925) 500-1180.
