    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

CA dermatologist answers the question about Ultherapy, how long does it last?

Patients struggling with the signs of aging who are considering Ultherapy treatments through The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in CA often have a number of questions to ask Dr. Christine Lee, "How long does it last?"

First, it is important for patients to understand how Ultherapy works. This device is FDA-approved for tightening and lifting the skin. The device delivers ultrasound energy that can target the structural supports to strengthen and tighten them, while stimulating the production of collagen. This treatment can also be used for body contouring as it can target and shrink fat cells in the areas treated.

Ultherapy does not work immediately. Instead, the results are seen over the course of time. Many patients report seeing continued improvement up to a year with regular visits as the collagen builds and provides a more tightened, toned appearance of the face and body. Multiple treatments scheduled weeks apart are suggested for optimal results.

Ultherapy will not provide permanent results. Patients must have a healthy diet and active lifestyle to maintain the results longer, and must take good care of their body overall. Additionally, regular visits may be necessary—at least once a year—to maintain the improvements. Unfortunately, we are unable to stop the aging process, but Ultherapy can be a wonderful alternative to facial surgeries for slowing it.

Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in CA is happy to provide Ultherapy and other advanced technologies to improve the face and body. She provides several lasers and therapies to address skin imperfections and troublesome areas of the body that cause concern for both men and women.

If you live in the East Bay area and you have considered Ultherapy or other modern modalities for anti-aging benefits, contact Dr. Christine Lee today to schedule a consultation visit with her experienced, quality staff.
