    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

Enjoy non-invasive fat removal with Vanquish in Walnut Creek, CA


The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute is one of very few dermatological practices in Walnut Creek, CA to provide solutions such as Vanquish for non-invasive fat removal. This treatment is a great non-surgical approach to reducing fat deposits all over the body, including the areas of the:
  • Stomach
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Bra line
  • “Muffin top”
  • Flanks

Dr. M. Christine Lee is a dermatological professional who is pleased to provide Vanquish treatments for a no-pain alternative to liposuction and tummy tucks.

What is Vanquish?

Vanquish is a specialized procedure that provides the removal of unwanted fat on various areas of the body without cutting into the skin or patients having to schedule downtime for healing. This device has been cleared by the FDA for use of deep tissue heating that can be used for nonsurgical reduction of abdominal circumference. While treatments such as CoolSculpting will freeze fat away, Vanquish will heat it and cause it to permanently diminish. This treatment damages the fat cells to provide better body contours.

Does Vanquish work?

Dr. M. Christine Lee has seen many patients in her practice achieve amazing results using Vanquish! With the use of radiofrequency energy, individuals can look great without having to visit a plastic surgeon for the removal of unwanted fat. This energy is completely safe, especially for the surrounding skin and tissues, while being extremely effective in removing unwanted fat cells.

Who is a candidate for Vanquish?

The best candidates are adult patients who are dealing with unwanted fat on the body that is not responsive to diet and exercise. Candidates for treatment are those that are already physically fit and healthy but want targeted results without plastic surgery. This is a more natural way of dealing with unwanted fat. Candidates who should avoid Vanquish treatment are patients that are pregnant, nursing or have metal implants in the body.

What does Vanquish feel like during treatment?

Patients experience a warming sensation on the skin that is comparable to the use of a heating pad. It is not considered painful, though we do closely monitor patient comfort throughout the treatment.

What can I expect after Vanquish treatment?

It is essential that patients understand that the results from Vanquish are not immediate. Instead, they occur over time as the fat cells are destroyed and naturally flushed from the body over the course of time. Patients who have treatments done regularly can experience amazing transformations that cannot always be achieved with traditional dieting and exercising. Most patients will notice changes in the way their clothes fit in approximately two weeks following their first treatment session. The changes continue to occur, and when patients have several treatment sessions, they will enjoy optimum results.

Is Vanquish a safe procedure with no side effects?

Image of a lady with over fat Vanquish is extremely safe for the deep tissues as demonstrated by studies in both animals and humans, and clinical trials that were performed well before the release of treatment. It is a device that is cleared by the FDA for body contouring and continues to be a popular choice for patients who have otherwise considered the risks of plastic surgeries. Some patients may experience warming and the attraction of heat to the area that was treated, but this is still relatively comfortable for most of our patients. This is called a “hot spot” and can occur as a short-term side effect. However, when we monitor our patients throughout their treatment, we reduce the risk of this side effect and allow patients to just enjoy their treatment with few worries!
