    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

Laser fat removal for Pleasant Hill area patients with SmartLipo

Both men and women often struggle with unwanted fat deposits on their bodies. Many have found that regardless of how they ate or how much they exercised, certain areas are very resistant to the reduction of fat. Patients who are at their goal body weight, are in overall good health, and are ready to address unwanted fat deposits may benefit from the SmartLipo procedure, a laser fat removal service offered to patients in the Pleasant Hill, East Bay, and Walnut Creek communities.

Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is excited to offer SmartLipo as an alternative to traditional liposuction. This procedure was FDA approved in 2006 and has helped thousands of individuals in recontouring areas of the body that are non-responsive to diet and exercise. Traditional liposuction uses a large tube called a cannula to suck out fat from underneath the upper layer of the skin. Liposuction is an invasive procedure that can increase one’s risk for infection, bruising, discomfort, and extensive downtime. Fortunately, patients can use SmartLipo as a way to avoid the long recovery periods and risks associated with conventional surgical methods.

SmartLipo uses a much smaller cannula that targets fat cells with a laser instead of vacuuming the fat out. It requires just a few incision points to insert the cannula and address fatty deposits. It is more comfortable, and can be done under local anesthesia. Many patients experience a day or two of downtime and are able to return to their daily lifestyle and schedule without much interruption. This treatment is desired by patients who have busy lives and are unable to take weeks off of work and activities to recovery from invasive procedures.

If you are considering laser fat removal, now is the time to talk to Dr. Christine Lee and her team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to schedule a consultation appointment and discuss the advantages that SmartLipo has to offer over conventional fat removal procedures. Learning the alternatives available can help in choosing a solution that works best for your body, your desires, and your budget.
