Male Services Reviews
"Really the best -- worth the wait - She's terrific. I see her for real skin problems and for cosmetic things. She's very gentle and fast in removing things. On the cosmetic front, she's quite good, and she doesn't push too much. I'm a guy, and she said she wouldn't do botox in two areas at once, but would alternate forehead and eyes. She was giving up 350 or so in money, but she really won my trust. Her products do get pricey, so I'd recommend you ask her what she suggests and buy at skin1 on line."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 17, 2009
"My first visit to Dr. Welsh was in the early 2000s for adult acne, a condition which had plagued me since childhood. I received excellent results. Now as I reach my later 30s, acne has become a thing of the past, yet I have a new issue: Aging facial skin. While I'm lucky that the byproduct of the former acne condition keeps my skin more naturally moisturized than others my age, I still am noticing subtle wrinkles around my eyes and furrowed smile lines. I've been very pleased with the outcomes of the various creams and non-invasive procedures she has recommended. The doctor and her staff always give me (a dude) a great comfort level whenever I arrive at their otherwise girly-ish offices (i.e. half of the waiting room area contains a Bloomingdale-sized cosmetic counter). Then again, if 80%+ of my clientele were women and I advertised my practice as "cosmetic dermatology," I'd probably design my office layout similarly. In any case, I have to admit it's kind of fun being the object of attention--however briefly--by her helpful and attentive female staff :)"- R.J. / Yelp / Mar 15, 2014
"My husband began PRP hair treatments here, he's had two sessions so far and is due for his third. We are both happy with the results and how well the Dr. and her assistants take care of us. Dr. Hui is so nice and always takes her time with us both. She administers the product to the scalp and pays close attention to areas that are worse than others. My husband and I both feel that his hair has gotten thicker, darker and less limp and frail than it was before. She will also prescribe and suggest supplements and products to go along with the treatment. My husband uses her shampoo which is fantastic and loves his hair vitamins. Looking forward to session #3!"- D.T. / Yelp / Jan 26, 2018
"Older Man Who Has Had over 50 Skin Cancers - Brooklyn, NY - I've known Dr Hui for over 5 years now from the first time I met her I knew she was very special. I've seen her in every aspect as a dermatologist/ Mohs surgeon and now the last few years using Fraxel. If you are looking for a dermatologist who will do the very best for you with the most modern technology then you have to make an appointment with my Doctor Andrea Hui."- B.C. / RealSelf / May 18, 2015
"I've been a patient of Dr. Welsh for 20 years. I'm a man in my 70's, and until age 50 had never given a thought to skin care beyond a moisturizer. I've a northern European complexion aging on the California coast. I was originally referred to her by my cosmetic surgeon for laser treatments to augment the healing of scars and hair removal. Dr. Welsh achieved quick results and offered sound advice on skin maintenance which has reversed a lifetime of neglect. I noticed the improvement immediately. Her care has been exacting, artful and extraordinary, and my skin - young for my years - attests to her skill. She has frequently advised against procedures I thought "maybe should try?" I have reaped benefits, mainly from fillers Dr. Welsh recommended, including lip enhancement. Most important: Nothing about my appearance has ever looked "altered." My most recent treatment - Hydrafacial - produced amazing immediate results. Her staff is professional and warmhearted. I'm a big fan!"- S.W. / Yelp / Mar 17, 2019
Our team of skilled medical professionals has the training, experience, and expertise to inject neuromodulators, such as Botox, in a way that compliments men’s facial structure. Neuromodulators are especially effective on the “frown lines” between the brows, relaxing these muscles so that you look less tired and angry, and more relaxed and confident. Neuromodulator injections are one of our most popular treatments for men because the treatment is quick, safe, and hassle-free but lasts up to four months.
As men age, they also lose fat in their under eyes, cheeks, and around the mouth. This leads to a more sunken and droopy look through the cheeks and along the jawline. Dr. Kathleen Welsh and Dr. Andrea Hui Austin know exactly where to inject dermal filler so that males may regain a more youthful look without looking “plumped” or “overfilled.” No one will know what you’ve had done, only that you look less tired.
According to a survey administered by the The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in 2014, the nonsurgical cosmetic procedure with the highest percentage of male patients was Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), also known as photofacial. At Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology we use the most advanced IPL lasers to treat redness and pigment caused by sun damage. An IPL treatment can considerably reduce the signs of aging by evening out the skin tone. Our male patients also frequently opt for vascular laser treatments for broken capillaries and redness on the nose and cheeks. With a series of laser treatments plus the right products, our male patients are very satisfied with their results.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA
We have many options to address male hair loss at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology. Along with our over-the-counter and prescription topicals and supplements for hair growth, our team of dermatologists, our PA, and our registered nurses also offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) scalp injections to help stimulate your own hair to grow. Many of our male patients have be able to avoid costly and invasive hair transplant surgery by treating with PRP instead.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Many of our male patients are bothered by excess hair growth on their backs, shoulders, and other areas. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective option for men who are tired of shaving and waxing. Not only is laser hair removal permanent but it can make a significant difference in a man’s life - saving time and money and boosting self-confidence. Our team of registered nurses use the most state-of-the-art lasers and can even treat facial hair that grows on the neck or outside of the beard line.
SKIN CANCER SCREENING
Many times our male patients first enter our office because their partners have made skin cancer screening appointments for them. And, that’s a wonderful reason to come to our office! Beautiful skin is healthy and cancer-free. We encourage all of our patients to schedule a yearly skin cancer screening with one of our dermatologists or our PA, regardless of age or gender. But, the best part of scheduling your skin cancer screening at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology is that we can address both your medical and cosmetic dermatology needs in one visit. During your skin cancer screening, our medical professionals will recommend a daily skin care regimen that includes growth factors, antioxidants, sun protection, and moisturization. These products help protect your skin from free radical and sun damage while keeping you looking youthful and fresh-faced. We may also recommend other treatments that your skin could benefit from including lasers for redness and pigment and cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers.
