    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

What are the side effects of Smartlipo for Walnut Creek patients?

Stubborn unwanted fat on problem areas of the body can cause patients to become self-conscious and less confident about the way they look. It is common for patients with extra fat deposits on certain areas of the body to find ways to cover it with clothing. In California, the sun is shining and the beach is warm, and it can be difficult to deal with unwanted fat on the thighs, abdomen, and the arms. This is why many patients will consider undergoing liposuction. Unfortunately, this procedure is invasive, which will often keep many from actually going through with the treatment. These patients could look into the possibility of undergoing SmartLipo.

SmartLipo is a different type of liposuction, but can provide the same amazing results. SmartLipo uses a laser to break up the fat, instead of a cannula that is used to remove the fat from the body. This alternative fat removal technique will provide the same results, with fewer side effects. Walnut Creek dermatologist, Dr. Christine Lee, is a doctor at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in California and uses SmartLipo to assist patients in improving their body’s contours in a safe and effective way.

As with any procedure, there is the potential for SmartLipo side effects. Walnut Creek patients can reduce these side effects and risks by visiting a board certified dermatologist who is trained and experienced in laser treatments such as this. Dr. Christine Lee is able to reduce the risk of side effects, which can include bruising, bleeding, irregular contouring, and infection. When done by a qualified doctor, the possibility of SmartLipo side effects and risks are minimized, and the results are amazing!

Dr. Christine Lee can help patients feel confident and proud of their bodies. Many who have been watching their diet and exercise may be frustrated to find that they are unable to address stubborn fat deposits on certain areas of their body, and find it difficult to show off the results of all their hard work when they cannot target areas of fat that are stubborn. With SmartLipo, patients can remove this unwanted fat and experience the body contours and curves that they’ve always wanted!
