    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

Pleasant Hill area dermatologist reviews the advantages of Ultherapy over plastic surgery

Although some patients in the Pleasant Hill area might be considering plastic surgery, they will find that there are several risks associated with these treatments. Additionally, they can be expensive and require extensive time to recover. Instead, patients are visiting Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to learn about less invasive methods such as Ultherapy for addressing sagging skin and fat deposits. Dr. Christine Lee is happy to consult with patients and she reviews the clear advantages of Ultherapy over conventional plastic surgeries for body contouring and skin tightening.

Gradual Results

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to help improve the structural supports of the skin and target unwanted fat cells in the treatment areas. It also helps in stimulating collagen production. Because of this, the results are not immediate, but are gradual. This helps in providing patients with a more natural change to the body instead of drastic results.

No Downtime

Plastic surgery often requires patients to schedule weeks—even months—of downtime. This may require patients to take considerable time off work and daily activities, including exercise. Instead, Ultherapy allows patients to have their treatment done in-office and then get back to their busy lifestyles.

No Knives or Anesthesia

Patients who have Ultherapy done with Dr. Christine Lee will not require anesthetics, and will not have to fear "going under the knife." Additionally, by eliminating the need to cut into the skin, patients eliminate their risks of infection due to surgical access points.


In comparison to conventional plastic surgery, Ultherapy treatments are considerably more affordable. While they can cost thousands of dollars for several treatments, the many benefits they provide over surgical intervention add more value to this alternative solution.


While the results of Ultherapy may not be the same as plastic surgery, they are still dramatic changes that can allow patients to lose several inches from various areas of the body, as well as tighten and tone their skin. This allows individuals to see effective results without the disadvantages associated with a face lift or tummy tuck.
