    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

What is the most beneficial squamous cell carcinoma surgery available in the Walnut Creek area?

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute provides her patients with a number of skin cancer surgery solutions to address areas of concern. When faced with a diagnosis of skin cancer, many patients want to know what their options are for treatment. Patients with squamous cell carcinoma, or SCC, may benefit from treatment options such as Mohs micrographic surgery.

Squamous cell carcinoma is a variation of skin cancer that is caused by the growth of abnormal skin cells. They often appear on the upper, visible layer of the skin and can present itself as open sores, unusual growths, warts, or scaly red patches. They may be troublesome, and bleed and scab consistently. When patients are dealing with what appears to be a wound that doesn't heal, it may need to be examined and biopsied to check for squamous cell carcinoma.

This type of skin cancer can form anywhere on the body, but typically develops on areas subjected to sun exposure such as the lips, ears, face, hands, arms, and legs. Patients who have squamous cell carcinoma are often worried about how to remove the cancerous skin cells without disfiguring a part of their body. This is where techniques such as Mohs micrographic surgery come into play.

Dr. Christine Lee offers Mohs micrographic surgery because it is one of the most successful skin cancer treatments, and because it leaves behind as many healthy skin cells as possible. This method of removing skin cancer is done layer by layer, with each layer being analyzed under a microscope for the detection of cancerous cells. The procedure continues until no further signs of skin cancer appear and the treatment area is stitched up. In some cases, patients may still need reconstructive surgery on the treatment site, but this will depend on how large the skin cancer area was.

At the East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center, Inc., we have the latest technologies and techniques to provide patients with the optimum care for their cosmetic and medical needs. If you have been diagnosed with skin cancer and you want the best in care and attention, visit Dr. Christine Lee today!
