Welcome to Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology and the Office of Kathleen M. Welsh, M.D.


At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology we believe that radiant skin is even toned, unblemished and fresh-appearing. Beautiful skin makes you look healthy and feel confident. “I find it truly rewarding that many times when we work with patients to improve their skin, they improve their outlook and self-esteem,” says Dr. Kathleen Welsh.

With the wide range of cosmetic procedures and skin products available today, men and women can have better skin at any age. “The difficulty for consumers is wading through the hundreds of choices and finding the best treatment plan for you. At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology, we can help you sort through all the available alternatives to find what treatments really work and which are really best for your skin type and your lifestyle,” notes Dr. Welsh. “I have seen patients who have spent hundreds of dollars on creams and treatments, for example, for dry skin who really have a medical skin condition that responded easily to a prescription medication. A dermatologist is a specialist in the care of skin and we care about skin!”
