    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

Relief for psoriasis sufferers with Lite Box treatment in East Bay

Psoriasis is a common skin condition characterized by raised patches of red, scaly skin, sometimes accompanied by bumps and pustules. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition, not an infection or contagious rash, which can appear anywhere on the body. It afflicts about ten percent of the U.S. population, both genders and all ages, causing social distress. It may also result in psoriatic arthritis or develop into the more severe disease called erythrodermic psoriasis.

We’ve long known that outbreaks respond favorably to sunlight and even tanning beds. However, collateral skin damage (wrinkles and permanent discoloration) and risk of skin cancer simply make it not worth experimenting with that method on your own. Dr. M. Christine Lee offers a much safer alternative – phototherapy.

Your immune system creates white blood cells to fight infection. A malfunction in the immune system causes some of those cells to trigger skin inflammation. It also causes skin cells to be generated too quickly. They simply pile up in patches of red skin or silvery scales. That’s psoriasis.

Lite Box therapy treats skin with a concentrated dose of shortwave UVB rays, focused only on the affected area. As UVB energy penetrates the skin, growth of affected cells slows down resulting in improvement in the appearance of the psoriasis – smoother, lighter skin. This method avoids the hazards of the potentially more damaging long-wave UVA rays, which go deeper into the skin.

Safe, affordable Lite Box therapy may be used on its own, or can complement topical creams, oral medications, and UVB laser techniques. Following a thorough evaluation of your medical history and lifestyle, and an examination of your skin, Dr. Lee develops an individualized program to manage your psoriasis. When treatment includes UVB therapy, the intensity and duration are closely controlled to bring your condition into remission.

Treatment sessions are painless. However, you may experience some redness or your psoriasis may worsen immediately after treatment. Rest assured this is normal and very temporary – it will resolve quickly as you see improved skin emerge.

You don't have to suffer the embarrassment of another severe psoriasis outbreak – call The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute for a consultation. Find out how effectively Lite Box therapy can bring your psoriasis under control.
