XEOMIN® is an FDA-approved treatment that smooths the wrinkles between the brows. Facial expressions, such as frowning, squinting, and smiling, all cause the muscles under the skin to contract. Over time, these repetitive motions cause the skin to fold and wrinkle, leading to the two vertical lines between the brow that we casually refer to as “the 11’s,” and the lines around the eyes we call “crow’s feet.” XEOMIN® is formulated with a molecule, similar to BOTOX®, that blocks the release of the chemicals that cause muscle contractions in the brow. XEOMIN® is also free of additives, making it unique and less-likely to cause an adverse reaction in patients. At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology, we are proud to offer XEOMIN® to our San Francisco patients.
"This review is for Dr Andrea Hui.In one word she is the best and her hand is a masterpiece. I had a really bad experience with a butcher from Marin and she totally fixed my bad restylane work like a PRO. She got my trust after 5 minutes of the procedure. The results were immediate without pain and bruises. She always come with a big smile, listens and takes her time with me. I never feel any pressure to get or to buy any treatment. I totally recommend Dr Hui million times. I will always visit her for any skin."- J.H. / Yelp / Jul 19, 2015
"What more can I say other than I implicitly trust my face to Dr. Welsh who is an absolute master of her profession."- C.E. / Yelp / Jun 24, 2015
"Dr. Andrea Hui is the best dermatologist I have ever been to on every level. She is kind, extremely knowledgeable and supremely skilled. Before I was even a patient of Dr. Hui's she actually advised me on the questions I should ask other dermatologists before I began getting botox, and filler. She has been my dermatologist for about 3 years now and I can honestly say my face and skin are exactly where I want them to be. I am now 34 years and I originally went to see Dr. Hui because I was starting to get the "I look tired even when I'm not tired" look under my eyes - I was also beginning to lose fullness in my cheeks. What I love about going to Dr. Hui is that her work is so subtle you see YOU not filler or botox. She has done wonders with subtly filling in under my eyes and filling out my cheeks just enough to get rid of the pesky little smile lines. She also helped me with my skin care regimen which got my skin back to the glowy look I had in my 20's. I really do get compliments from friends and strangers about the quality of skin. I am a performer and I always get compliments from makeup artists about my cheekbones to which I smile to myself and thank Dr. Hui. She is not the Dr. to go to if you want to look like you've had work done. She's the Dermatologist to go to when you want to see the best version of yourself. I literally cannot thank Dr. Hui enough."- JD / Office Visit / Mar 25, 2016
"I love what Dr. Welsh and Dr. Hui have done to my skin. They helped me find confidence and happiness again. I have been doing treatments for about two years including injections, ulthera, clear and brilliant and hydra facials. Never disappointed!!! I also see Mary - she is the best with treatments and helpful advice!! Strongly recommend."- L.H. / Yelp / Jul 14, 2015
"I was flying to Beverly Hills to get my injections, until I met and heard about Dr.Welsh. The reason I spend money to fly in get a hotel room for one night in San Francisco is because she is so worth it. I have been to other derm's that just put the injections any where just to make you happy. Dr. Welsh as an eye for your individual face and what would look best on you. I highly recommend Dr.Welsh because she truly cares about you instead of just being another patient."- K.H. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2012
What to Expect
XEOMIN® is a nonsurgical procedure that is safely and quickly administered by one of our skilled injectors. Prior to XEOMIN® injections, our staff will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area, making the procedure more comfortable. The injections are administered quickly and you may resume normal activities immediately after your treatment.
XEOMIN® is a safe, noninvasive procedure, which may cause mild swelling and redness to appear on the site of injection, but this usually subsides after an hour. If the redness or swelling persists, contact our San Francisco office for more information. After a XEOMIN® treatment, there is little to no downtime and patients are cleared to return to their normal activities.
