Welcome to Our Office
Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology is a state-of-the-art facility located in the Lower Pacific Heights of San Francisco, California. Our board-certified dermatologists know healthy skin does more than look good. It functions beautifully, too, acting as a barrier against the outside world and telling a greater story about who you are and where you’ve been.

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 highly recommend Dr. Steven He. I have had melasma and Nevi of Ota from on my cheeks and temples for the past 15 years. I’ve tried treatments from other dermatologists, including hydroxychloroquine cream, with no improvement. I’ve also met with other laser treatment centers, who presented cookie cutter treatments. However, I’ve seen friends and family get rebound hyperpigmentation on their face from aggressive dose of laser therapy. For Asian s...
