Welcome to Our Office
Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology is a state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of San Francisco, California. Our board-certified dermatologists know healthy skin does more than look good.

A proactive approach to your skin can make all the difference in decreasing—or even reversing—the signs of aging. Take it from Dr. Kathleen Welsh, "When it comes to skincare, the age you start is the age you stay."
I went to Bay Area Dermatology because a few of the girls in my office recommend it. I had developed a really bad case of melasma on my cheeks and upper lip. When I made an appointment they had asked me if I had a preference as to who I wanted to see.

Ok I'm going to sing the praises of Mary Krempa for her attention to detail. She says that she's a "laser nerd" but she's really a laser queen! I've been dealing with rosacea for some years now and have had "V-Beam" procedures done a few times. Never have I had anyone do such a thorough job as Mary. And she's a sweet, happy and compassionate person - so if you're a little apprehensive around lasers this really makes a difference. Another plus - i...
