    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

Can East Bay area patients enjoy skin tightening with Ultherapy?

After the age of 30, we begin to lose collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that occurs in our body to help keep our skin looking youthful and firm. The loss of collagen results in decreased elasticity of the skin and reduces its ability to withstand gravity. This results in loose, sagging skin on the face and neck. Thankfully, medical advances allow us to use ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and allow the skin on the face and neck to become firmer and tighter. This treatment is called Ultherapy skin tightening.

Dr. Lee, of the East Bay area, offers Ultherapy treatments at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek. Her facility offers state-of-the-art methods of improving the skin and reducing the signs of aging. Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared device that stimulates new collagen on targeted areas of the body to tighten, firm, and lift skin. It is a wonderful, non-invasive alternative to a surgical facelift and can provide patients with a way to address increased skin laxity.

Ultherapy works by targeting the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen, which increases over the course of several months to firm the treatment area. Patients will not see results right away. Instead, the results will be gradual over the course of approximately six months. After this point, patients can continue to undergo treatments to see even more results, or can enjoy the results for years to come. Continued treatments can help in maintaining the look achieved.

Ultherapy treatments are relatively short and involve very little discomfort. Many patients find the heat released by the device to be very tolerable. Swelling and redness may occur immediately after treatment but is temporary. There are no side effects or risks with Ultherapy, as there is with alternative treatments including surgery. Patients will find that this is a safe and effective way to target problem areas of the face and neck.

If you live in the East Bay area and you are considering Ultherapy or any other revolutionary treatments to improve your appearance, contact Dr. Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to schedule your initial consultation visit.
