    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 can a Lafayette area patient expect during Ultherapy treatment?

Patients in the Lafayette area who are seeking a solution to poor skin laxity without undergoing a surgical procedure such as a face-lift often consider the benefits of Ultherapy treatment. Dr. Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers Ultherapy for patients who want to tighten, tone, and lift the skin on specific areas of the body.

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that utilizes ultrasound energy to target deeper layers of the skin to address sagging, loose skin. Patients typically enjoy using Ultherapy on aging areas of the body, including the face and neck.

This non-surgical treatment is a unique approach to target problem areas without having to cut into the skin. Unlike lasers, which target the superficial layers of the skin for the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation concerns, Ultherapy goes deep into the skin to address the foundation of the skin to lift, support, and pull to improve the appearance and tone.

During treatment, patients are extremely comfortable. The area of treatment is thoroughly cleansed, and a special ultrasound gel is applied. The Ultherapy treatment uses a handpiece that is placed on the skin and is used to stimulate collagen growth deep underneath. There may be a slight sensation felt as the ultrasound energy is delivered, but it is well tolerated and can be controlled with medication taken before the procedure.

Patients enjoy the ability to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. While they may experience some redness and possible swelling for several days after their treatment, these side effects are mild and temporary. Patients with any concerns after treatment are encouraged to contact Dr. Lee if they believe there is a more severe problem.

If you live in the Lafayette area and you are considering a safe, quality treatment to firm the skin and improve the tone and appearance of the face and neck, Ultherapy may be the solution for you. Contact Dr. Lee and the team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to schedule your initial consultation visit and examination to determine if you are a candidate for Ultherapy treatment or any other skin tightening or firming alternative.
