    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

Bay Area patients with stubborn fat welcome safe, effective non surgical body contouring with heat

Non Surgical Body Contouring Bay Area - Measure BodyThe Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers many non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures. These techniques get the results patients from around the globe desire, without the prolonged healing and downtime of more invasive, conventional treatments.

Vanquish is an alternative to going under the knife to get a more sculpted you. Since fat cells are very responsive to outside stimuli, Vanquish uses heat delivered in a controlled and precise manner to safely contour stubborn areas of fat, such as the thighs, abdomen, sides, butt, back, upper knees, and the back of the arms.

The heating power comes from radiofrequency (RF) energy. Dr. Lee will skillfully apply RF energy via a multi-paneled applicator. The device is designed to deliver powerful heat without ever touching delicate tissues. This feature minimizes discomfort during the procedure and unwanted side effects and complications post-procedure.

Treatments that use RF energy are designed not only for maximum comfort and optimal patient experience, but also to target areas of the body that may not be fatty at all. While fat cells respond to RF-derived heat by gradually dissolving in the months following treatment, selective heating with Vanquish also stimulates the production of collagen. Your body produces less collagen over time. Since Vanquish can both destroy fat and tighten skin, it is effective on areas of the body that have lost laxity, are saggy, and not necessarily fatty, such as the back of the arms.

Also, since Vanquish stimulates the process of destroying and removing fat cells from the body safely, you will never have to worry about fat developing in the treated area. Traditional weight loss via diet and exercise can shrink fat cells, but not destroy them.

Vanquish may be a suitable treatment for those who have lost weight with diet and exercise but have stubborn areas that have not responded. Dr. Lee will determine if this type of non-surgical body contouring is right for you after a consultation at her new, Bay Area office in Walnut Creek. You may be a candidate for Vanquish should you have stubborn pockets, but are or close to an ideal weight range. Vanquish is also an attractive option for those patients who want to avoid the anesthesia, medication, preparation, and downtime related to more invasive, surgical body contouring.
