    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

Technology allows for comfortable fat reduction without surgery in Walnut Creek

Dr. Christine Lee is not only trained and experienced in delivering non-invasive procedures; such as Vanquish, but she also travels the globe to share her knowledge with other medical professionals. Patients from around the world travel to Dr. Lee as well, trusting their health and appearance to her expertise.

Few procedures get as "non-invasive" as Vanquish. The device that delivers the "fat-flushing power" never touches you, the patient. This approach adds to your comfort and minimizes discomfort following the procedure.

Vanquish may be an option if you have fat around the belly, waist, back, arms, and other areas. The fat that develops in these areas is often resistant to diet and exercise. In the past, if this excess was troublesome, you either had to adjust to your new shape or undergo surgical procedures.

Not everyone is a candidate for surgery nor does every patient want to go under the knife in the name of a slimmer physique. Vanquish strikes the balance by effectively treating trouble spots safely and comfortably — without the risks and long recovery associated with surgical procedures.

What is this non-surgical slimming procedure?

The science behind Vanquish is based off of the idea that fat cells respond to outside stimuli, such as heat. Vanquish technology delivers targeted heat to trouble spots in the form of radiofrequency energy (radio waves). Other non-surgical procedures are designed to treat fat via the application of cool temperature.

Since the Vanquish applicator delivering this energy never touches your skin, damage to delicate tissues is eliminated. The non-invasive nature of this procedure limits side effects and discomfort. Patients have compared the sensation of heat to a stone massage.

The real magic happens in the months following treatment. Targeted heat destroys fat cells safely. This is a gradual process. The cells are eliminated from the body over time. With "traditional" weight loss fat cells shrink. They are not eliminated so you can develop excess in the same areas again.

Vanquish has the added benefit of tightening. Think of how some areas of the body, such as behind the arms, may be more fleshy than flabby. Selective heating via RF energy stimulates the production of collagen. Your body makes less of this firming protein naturally as you get older. Since Vanquish can target skin laxity as well as fat, it is an effective treatment for loose tissues.

Vanquish is just one of many options for tightening and fat reduction without surgery in Walnut Creek. To find out more, schedule an appointment at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Call (925) 500-1180.
