    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

Patients who are considering liposuction but are uneasy about the cost, risks, and recovery, are welcome to speak to Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute regarding an alternative known as SmartLipo.

SmartLipo is used to treat areas of unwanted fat deposits in a different manner. Instead of using a cannula that suctions fat out of the body, SmartLipo uses laser lipolysis to heat and destroy fat cells, allowing them to naturally flush through the body over time and provide beautiful contours. This method of liposuction has a variety of benefits, including reduced healing and recovery time, no use of general anesthetics, and improved body contours. This is best for patients who do not want to have dramatic changes done to their body, which may make them appear to others as they have had "work done."

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute recommends patients take time to consult with her and determine if SmartLipo is right for them. The best candidates are those who are within their ideal weight range and are seeking body contouring, not weight loss. This is important for patients to understand that procedures such as this are not the answer to obesity but instead a solution to stubborn areas of fat. During an initial consultation appointment, Dr. Christine Lee will likely ask about medical history and family concerns to help in making sure SmartLipo or other fat reduction techniques are appropriates and will not affect any other medical conditions patients may have. A consultation appointment is the best way of finding out if SmartLipo is appropriate and can provide the results patients want to achieve. Patients are encouraged to be optimistic though realistic about the body contouring benefits of SmartLipo versus traditional lipolysis.

If you live in Walnut Creek or the surrounding area, contact The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to learn more about SmartLipo and how it can dramatically improve your body contours—and self-confidence!
