    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 can Walnut Creek area patients expect before and after Ulthera treatment?

One of the best ways to reduce skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles is to take a proactive approach to taking care of the skin. One treatment, called Ulthera, is available at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute of the Walnut Creek area. Ulthera is an FDA-cleared device that uses ultrasound energy to target the deeper layers of the skin to rejuvenate collagen production. Collagen formation can tighten and tone the skin, while lifting at the same time. The results of Ulthera are seen over the course of time.

Many patients are good candidates for treatment as it is safe and effective for adults. However, when patients visit Dr. Christine Lee, they often ask what they can expect before and after their treatment.

Patients are encouraged to speak with their dermatologist about the procedure and ask whether it can help them with their personal skin concerns. Patients should have realistic expectations regarding what the procedure can do for them. Dr. Christine Lee can answer any questions during the consultation to give patients a better understanding of the procedure.

The treatment can last under one hour, and is relatively comfortable for many individuals. Many passes of the device are applied to the skin of the face to target the trouble areas. After the treatment, patients are able to return to their busy lifestyles. Some redness may appear on the face for a few hours after treatment, but this is short-term and nothing for patients to be concerned about. Most patients complete their procedure during their lunch hour and return to work immediately afterwards. This is the ultimate benefit of Ulthera no downtime or recovery period!

Several months after the treatment, patients continue to see improvement in their skin’s texture and tone. Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, and skin that once sagged around the face and jowls will be tighter and firmer. The results are seen for many months, and patients can speak with Dr. Christine Lee about undergoing regular maintenance treatments to continue to stimulate the production of collagen for long-term results.
