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. 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. Our dermatology services in San Francisco improve both skin health and beauty for meaningful, lasting results that everyone will notice.
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."

The women I've met who work here are amazing! They are professional and caring and truly passionate about getting skin to the best it can be safely and carefully! If you are passionate about skin and excellence in skin care, this is a wonderful office to consider a connection.
I LOVE Bay Area Cosmetic Derm!!!! I see Garret-Forest,PA and she's so amazing! Super friendly and takes the time to get to know her clients. The office is super clean and very comfortable as well. I always recommend this office to all of my friends :)!
My experience at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology has truly been exceptional. Having very fair skin, sun damage and redness have been constants for most of my life. After laser treatments with Garrett Forrest, my skin looks better than I thought possible. She was empathetic and did a great job articulating what practices to add to my daily routine to keep my [now perfect] skin. Highly recommend!
