    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

Explain the process of the SmartLipo procedure for Walnut Creek patients

Fat deposits can be stubborn, regardless of how closely you follow your diet and exercise program. It can be difficult to address the fat deposits, which is why many patients consider treatments such as liposuction to improve these areas. However, many patients find that there are more advantages to treatments such as the SmartLipo procedure. Walnut Creek's The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers SmartLipo treatments to target areas of stubborn fat on the body, in areas such as the tummy, back, neck, and thighs.

SmartLipo is an FDA-approved treatment that can reduce the amount of fat in certain areas of the body. It does so in a much less invasive way than traditional liposuction. Using a laser, it breaks down the fat and provides results that improve over several months after the initial treatment. It is more affordable than plastic surgery, and carries less risks and disadvantages.

SmartLipo is done under local anesthesia. Patients are made comfortable and small incisions are made for the tube that is inserted into the area to break up the fat deposits. Depending on the area being treated, the whole process takes an hour or two. It is an outpatient treatment that requires little downtime.

Recovery time is next to nothing. Unlike traditional liposuction, patients only experience one or two days of downtime. The area is bandaged for approximately two weeks, but patients are able to go about their lives without the procedure affecting their lifestyle. This is a wonderful benefit to having SmartLipo done versus traditional invasive surgery. It also reduces the risks of bruising and infection, making it a better alternative in the long run for results and the patient's health and wellbeing after the procedure.

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers a number of laser treatments and dermatological services for patients who want to improve their appearance as well as their self-esteem. Learning more about SmartLipo is as easy as calling her practice and scheduling a consultation appointment and examination to determine candidacy for this service.
