    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

Light-based treatment offers a low-risk way to clear psoriasis in Walnut Creek


Low-risk Light based treatment for psoriasis from Dr. Christine Lee in Walnut Creek
An international authority on light-based treatments, Dr. Christine Lee is among the best-equipped in the East Bay to safely, efficiently, and effectively manage even the largest or most widespread cases. It’s not for everyone, but there is sure to be a psoriasis treatment in Walnut Creek, CA customized to your unique needs.

Why light?

You may be used to hearing about the “dangers” of sunlight. And while there are certainly risks associated with unprotected exposure to the sun’s rays or from artificial sources, there are benefits to ultraviolet (UV) light. Notably, as UVB penetrates the skin, it slows down your body’s production of skin cells, the process responsible for your symptoms. As this occurs, you’ll notice an improved appearance and get relief from the swelling, itching, stiffness, burning, and soreness.

How it’s done

UVB light is administered via a professional light box. One of the keys to successful treatment is consistency. The total number of sessions that are required to clear symptoms, and the length of each session, varies by characteristics such as your skin type and the severity of your psoriasis. Dr. Lee safely delivers a controlled amount of light to trouble areas using the walk-in light box. You may be exposed to UVB for only a few seconds at a time at first, gradually increasing to several minutes of exposure per session. Some therapies may be combined with UVB or phototherapy treatment, which can result in the need for a lower dose of systemic medications to effectively clear your psoriasis.

Get enlightened about your options

Call (925) 500-1180 to schedule an appointment at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. During an evaluation, Dr. Christine Lee may also determine you are a suitable candidate for other types of light-based treatments available at the Walnut Creek office, including UVA and lasers.
