Dermatologist in Walnut Creek area can help patients in treating damaged skin
The skin is the largest organ of the body; the only one that is exposed
to the elements day and night. Dr. Christine Lee and the team of The
Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek are here to help
individuals in treating damaged skin.
Damaged skin can result from a variety of issues. It may be due to conditions like acne or melasma. Some patients may experience large pores or poor texture. Others may experience hyperpigmentation or “sun spots” on their skin from too much sun exposure. The definition of “damaged skin” can range from patient to patient. However, Dr. Christine Lee is a board certified dermatologist who can make recommendations for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their skin and are seeking ways to rejuvenate it.
For some, the best treatment may be that of microneedling. Microneedling is a special service used to stimulate the production of collagen during the body’s own natural healing process. This is done by causing very small punctures in the skin. This makes the body react to the “wound” and, therefore, speed up the healing process and the stimulation of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. The results? More beautiful, youthful, healthier looking skin!
Microneedling is completely safe and patients are given topical numbing cream for their skin to ensure optimum comfort. This method is rather non-invasive and is performed by a board certified dermatologist for the best results and for patient safety. We advise patients to always have a trained professional perform these types of treatments to obtain the results patients long for.
Microneedling is a great treatment for patients of any ethnicity and for those who have a variety of issues with their skin they would like to improve in just one service. Dr. Christine Lee works with her patients, during the initial consultation appointment, to determine if microneedling is right for them. She encourages patients to learn about all the treatment options available for cosmetic and medical purposes in her practice and educates them so they can make a knowledgeable decision regarding their care.
