    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

An Introduction to SmartLipo
An Introduction to SmartLipo
You are responsible about keeping your body fit and healthy. You get regular exercise and you eat right. You are within 25 pounds of your ideal weight. However, you have a few localized areas of body fat that just won't budge. You are ready to find a safe, affordable medical solution to remove them permanently, and you have realistic expectations for how that will affect your self-image and your life.

It this describes your situation, SmartLipo, the first laser-assisted liposuction technique, could be right for you! The SmartLipo device was approved by the FDA in 2006. The resulting cutting-edge procedure combines the benefits of laser technology with traditional liposuction to contour small areas of the neck, face, upper arms, knees, back, and other body parts. SmartLipo can also be used in conjunction with conventional liposuction for larger areas of fat reduction. It costs about 30 percent less than usual liposuction methods.

Dr. M. Christine Lee is a pioneer in the use of lasers in dermatology. During the SmartLipo procedure, she utilizes a carefully calibrated medical grade laser, through the topmost layers of skin, to liquefy fat cells beneath. As the fat cells rupture, they are drained with a cannula through a tiny incision. Treatment typically takes about 45 minutes per area.

SmartLipo carries less surgical risk, since it requires only local anesthetic, and downtime is reduced to just a day or two (treated areas remain bandaged for about two weeks). While it eliminates fat, the laser seals blood vessels for minimal bleeding and bruising. The laser also allows for very precise movements, since it serves as a visual guide for Dr. Lee. Surrounding skin is pulled inward during the SmartLipo process so it doesn't droop! Reconstructing underneath layers tightens skin for beautiful, natural contours without sagging. You'll see results right away, and more improvement over the next few months.

The best news – treated fat cells are not absorbed back into the body! They are gone for good. Since adults don't create new fat cells, if you gain weight after your treatment, it will be dispersed over untreated areas of your body.

Adipose tissue (human fat) can be tough to get rid of, even with diet and exercise. Talk with Dr. Lee and the team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to find out if laser-assisted lipo-sculpture is the best solution for you.
