    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!!!

Restylane & Perlane

Restylane is a dermal filler compound composed of Hyaluronic Acid, a safe and natural substance that already exists in your body. Hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane has been used safely by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 worldwide.

Restylane is injected just below the skin's surface in order to plump up the skin and fill in deep facial creases and wrinkles. This is different than the way Botox works (Botox relaxes the facial muscles beneath the skin). Together, Restylane and Botox can be used for a customized result. Restylane has been shown to give long-lasting correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Documented results have been shown to last six months, or longer in some patients. It has an excellent safety profile and because Restylane is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required.

Perlane, like Restylane, is a dermal filler compound composed of Hyaluronic acid. Perlane has larger gel particles and is intended to be injected deeper within the skin.

Juvederm Ultra & Juvederm Ultra Plus

Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus are made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvederm is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvederm provides smooth and natural looking results. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime.


Sculptra

Sculptra is a long lasting facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time, replacing lost collagen. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic (an average of three injection sessions over a few months) can last up to two years. Sculptra is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades. It has been cleared by the FDA for cosmetic uses.

Facial fat loss, or lipoatrophy, is the loss of fat beneath the skin, which can result in sunken cheeks, indentations, and hollow eyes. Sculptra is a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material that is injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss. It provides a gradual and significant increase in skin thickness, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas. No skin testing is required.

Dr. Lee is now offering new, lower prices on Sculptra injections!

Hylaform

Hylaform has been described as one of the best instant solutions for facial lines, wrinkles and contouring. In April 2004, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved Hylaform for use as an injectable wrinkle filler for those who seek to disguise the effects of aging.

Hylaform was the fourth injectable wrinkle treatment to gain FDA approval, following the prior approvals of Restylane, Botox and Collagen. Hylaform does compare favorably with these treatments in a number of areas. For example, unlike Collagen injections, no pre-treatment skin allergy tests are required with Hylaform injections.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found in human skin and throughout the body. Hylaform is a dermal filler that is made from a highly purified form of hyaluronic acid which mimics the effects of natural hyaluronic acid.

Normal, healthy skin contains several important components that help to keep it supple and young looking, and one of these is hyaluronic acid. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar that is found in all living cells, it helps to maintain skin volume by attracting and binding over one thousand times its weight in water. As time passes, sunlight the aging process and other factors will cause the hyaluronic acid in your skin to diminish, your skin will then lose volume, and lines and wrinkles appear. With Hylaform, you can temporarily replace the hyaluronic acid that your skin has lost. When injected just below the surface of the skin, Hylaform adds volume to the skin, helping to smooth unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Captique

Captique Injectable is a new FDA- approved non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Captique, a clear gel containing a purified form of hyaluronic acid, adds volume lost during the aging process by temporarily smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles. Captique is injected just under the skin’s surface in order to temporarily correct wrinkles.

Radiesse

Radiesse is a calcium base gel which helps to restore volume and stimulate collagen and through time is absorbed through your body making this safe for use in the nasolabial folds.


Radiesse injections are frequently used to treat the smile lines around the mouth and help restore volume in the cheek area. The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. Radiesse wrinkle filler's unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients.
