    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

Patients in Walnut Creek, CA ask about the benefits of undergoing microneedling treatment


Skin rejuvenation services are just one of many cosmetic treatments highly requested by our patients here at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Dr. Christine Lee is a dermatologist in Walnut Creek, CA who is proud to offer a variety of options for her patients to consider. Her patients are educated on the benefits of treatments such as microneedling, which can transform the texture and tone of the skin in as little as one session.

Microneedling explained

The idea of microneedling can sound scary to patients. A special device is used with many very tiny needles to puncture the surface of the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process. During this time, the skin develops collagen and elastin to restore the its health. This can result in a more youthful appearance and can address a variety of issues on the skin. Microneedling is best used for issues such as:
  • Poor skin tone and texture
  • Acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull skin appearance

Where can microneedling be used?

Dr. Christine Lee is proud to offer her patients several liposuction options to choose Many of our patients use microneedling on the face, but it can be used anywhere on the body, including the hands, arms, legs, and even the abdomen. Most patients are appropriate candidates for microneedling, as it is safe and effective on all types of skin. This makes it a highly desirable option for all of our patients to consider, while other therapies such as laser treatments may be more aggressive and expensive.

What can I expect during my microneedling procedure?

The first step is consulting with our board-certified dermatologist to determine if microneedling is right for you. Once patients have decided to move forward with treatment, the doctor applies a topical anesthetic to the skin for optimum comfort. A device called the Eclipse MicroPen™ is rolled over the skin gently, using a dozen small needles to puncture the upper layer of the skin. Many patients explain the procedure as the feeling of sandpaper brushing against the skin. For patients who are treating the facial area, treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. Once patients leave the office, they may experience some redness in the treatment area that will resolve itself after a few days. Within six months, many of our patients begin to see the results they’ve desired, and may seek continued treatments to enjoy optimal improvements. This is due to the time it takes for the skin to develop collagen and elastin on its own through the healing process. While the results take time, they are well worth the wait!

Why choose microneedling?

The team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is here to help patients in and around the area of Walnut Creek, Microneedling is a safe and effective way to address poor texture and tone of the skin, along with other skin concerns. It is affordable for many of our patients, and is one of the less aggressive methods available in our practice for skin rejuvenation.
