    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

Patients enjoy safety, comfort, and other benefits of Ulthera treatment in the Bay Area

Bay Area residents with lax skin can get a "lift" without having to go under the knife, thanks to the latest technologies in the capable hands of Dr. Christine Lee and her team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute.

Dr. Lee has not only harnessed medical advances for the benefit of her patients, but she has driven medical advances to non-surgically lift and tighten skin with lasers. Other non-invasive treatments have been introduced using controlled application of cool temperatures and Radio frequency energy to sculpt flabby or fleshy areas.

Both RF energy and laser beams deliver heat to tighten and firm tissues. The Ulthera system is also designed to heat deep tissues on the face, neck, and chest; however, the heat is delivered through thousands of short, but intense pulses of ultrasonic waves.

Ultrasound has been used in medical imaging for years. Patients should sleep easier knowing Ulthera is based off of a technology that is proven, safe, and boasts low risks.

Specific benefits of the Ultherapy procedure include:
  • Collagen regeneration - Unlike other noninvasive techniques, Ulthera heats deep tissues to simulate the production of firming collagen protein.
  • Bypasses surface skin - Due to the unique properties of sound waves, the Ulthera system allows for deep penetration and powerful treatment without damaging superficial tissues.
  • Predictable, safe results - Dr. Lee and her team use ultrasound imaging to see how the energy is being distributed through the skin, which enhances the effectiveness of the procedure.
  • Comfortable - Many patients compare the procedure to a warm massage which is limited to when the tiny amounts of energy are delivered.
  • No downtime - After the 30- to 90-minute treatment session, you can immediately get back to work and other activities. Side effects are temporary, and commonly limited to flushing, swelling, tenderness, and tingling.
Some improvement may be visible immediately following treatment. Dramatic improvements are realized as new collagen is produced. This process generally takes 2 to 6 months. Since changes occur gradually, treatment results look natural and not "plastic." You can regain youthful contours with a single session.

Rethink the statement: "No pain, no gain." You can gain a refreshed appearance without the scalpel, shots, anesthesia, pain medications, risks of complications, and recovery associated with other procedures. Experience Ulthera treatment benefits for yourself in the Bay Area, courtesy of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek. Call (925) 500-1180 to schedule a consultation.
