    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 happens for Bay area patients during the Ulthera procedure?

Many patients who are ready to tackle the unwanted signs of aging have found that the Ulthera procedure in the Bay area provides a non-invasive, effective way to tighten and tone the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Ulthera is a treatment that utilizes ultrasound energy to heat the deep layers of the skin to improve collagen production, which can create younger looking skin. Men and women have enjoyed the benefits of Ulthera treatments on the face, and have noticed amazing changes with a single treatment.

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in the Bay area is excited to offer this amazing state-of-the-art technology to improve the skin. Patients as young as 35 years old can enjoy Ulthera services and will notice dramatic improvements as the months pass. This treatment provides gradual results that are natural and beautiful.

Many patients who consult Dr. Christine Lee ask what they can expect before, during, and after the Ulthera procedure.

Patients are expected to visit their dermatologist to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for the Ulthera procedure. Patients must have realistic expectations from the treatment, and understand that it may not provide the same results as plastic surgery. However, for patients who are experiencing the early signs of aging, Ulthera might be the best option.

During the procedure, patients are made comfortable in the treatment chair. The skin will be cleansed and the Ulthera device is set at the appropriate treatment strength. The patient relaxes as the device is used to heat the skin, but in a rather comfortable manner. Many patients experience a slight heating sensation but find it tolerable. The appointment will take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes from start to finish when areas of the face are being treated.

After the procedure, patients may notice some redness of the face, but this goes away within a few hours and can be covered with cosmetics if necessary. Many patients go back to work immediately after their appointment. Plastic surgery requires individuals to schedule considerable time away from work and other activities to heal and recover from the procedure, making Ulthera the best alternative for busy individuals!
