    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 answers, what is Ultherapy?

Patients in the Pleasant Hill area visit Dr. Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to find ways to improve the way they look. Whether they want to address a skin condition such as acne or melasma or reverse the unwanted signs of aging, Dr. Lee can help. With over 40 specialized laser devices in her office, she can provide quality care for anyone seeking a way to rejuvenate their skin and transform their appearance. Patients interested in ways to address skin laxity often ask about Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is a treatment that uses ultrasound energy to target deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen, which can tighten and firm the target areas. This can tone, lift, and tighten areas such as the face and neck, which lose collagen over time and can result in sagging, drooping skin. With Ultherapy, patients can hone in on these problem areas and see dramatic improvement without undergoing a surgical procedure such as a face-lift. Surgical treatments involve many risks with anesthesia and infection, and can require extensive downtime for recovery. Ultherapy allows patients to complete treatment in approximately one hour and go about their day without skipping a beat!

Ultherapy is a unique, non-invasive procedure that is effective, safe, and affordable. Many patients benefit from just one treatment, and can see continued improvement over the course of several months as collagen builds and tightens the targeted area. Ultrasound imaging provides amazing results in as little as two months with one procedure, though patients seeking dramatic improvement may benefit from additional treatments.

Dr. Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is excited to provide this FDA-cleared treatment to assist patients in targeting areas of concern. The neck and face are often the areas that benefit most from this treatment and can keep patients from considering more invasive procedures such as a surgical face-lift through a Pleasant Hill area plastic surgeon. Patients can enjoy the effects without the recovery time and risks associated with surgical alternatives.

If you live in the Pleasant Hill area and you have considered treatments such as Ultherapy, call The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute today to find out if you are a viable candidate for this particular treatment. Patients who are healthy and are interested in firming specific areas of their skin will enjoy the benefits of Ultherapy and other skin tightening treatments available through Dr. Lee's state-of-the-art dermatological facility.
