Dr. Welsh is the best... - Dr. Welsh is the best injector! She always takes care to enhance my features in a natural way. I never have to worry that I will look “done” after my treatment. She offers the latest and greatest injectables and her technique is flawless. There is no one else I trust more when it comes to my face!This review was created as part of a nomination to the RealSelf I Love My Injector Campaign. More

Great dermatologist - When I lived in the Bay Area Dr. Welsh was my dermatologist of choice! The first time I came to her office was for tattoo removal when I was in my 20’s...it was a total success. Years later I am 100% tattoo ink free thank to her. It took time but was well worth it. I have also used her office for the V-beam laser procedure which removes dilated blood vessels. If you have rosacea, or a... More

30 Yo, Work out 3-5 Times Per Week, Eat Healthy...couldn't Get Rid of my Sides, Tummy Pouch and Saddle Bags - Dr. Welsh is wonderful! She's a top dermatologist in SF, that's why i trust her with my skin and body. She only offers the best of everything and has an incredible intuition with people and their skin. I highly recommend her and her staff to everyone. Because she's so good at what she does, she is busy, so be sure to book ahead. More

Dr. Hui is in a league of her own! - My entire experience from the moment I walked in far exceeded any expectation I could have ever imagined. Dr. Hui is truly an artist! I have been to so many plastic surgeons and dermatologists trying to correct the shadows that I see on my forehead but NOBODY was able to correct them until I came to see Dr. Hui. My forehead is very small and it was fairly flat, with multiple recessed ridges... More

Eternally grateful to have found Dr. Hui - I have battled back acne for over 30 years and over that time have seen different dermatologists, have been prescribed oral antibiotics such as erythromycin and doxycycline,  have had 3 rounds of Accutane in the late '90's, early 2000's, and tried different prescription creams. Despite all of these efforts, acne and scarring have continued to persist. So after receiving a product sample at ... More

25, 5'5", 165 Lbs, Work out 4x/week, No Kids, Have Always Had a "Tummy" - I came 40 mins early for my appointment and they were able to get me started right away. They were very clear about the chances of side effects and all the potential side effects. They gave me tea and kept me comfy throughout the 2.5 hr ordeal. If I don't develop nerve pain I would gladly throw buckets of money on doing this again. More

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. More

Great Results with Botox for the 11s - San Francisco, CA - I went in to see Dr. Hui for a skincare consultation and light botox for the 11s. I found Dr Hui to be very warm, knowledgable and professional. She is a highly skilled injector and I am more than happy with my results. During the consultation, she also took the time to create a skin regimen for me to help with some of my hyper pigmentation issues. I haven't been able to purchase all of the products yet but the ones I have are already making a difference, and I can wait to try the rest. I highly recommend Dr. Hui for all of your skincare needs.

Belotero Treatment with Blunt-tipped Cannula - San Francisco, CA - My experience with Dr. Hui was wonderful and very pleasant. She treated around my eyes with Belotero using the blunt-tipped cannula to minimize bruising and to create a much more natural result. The eyes are very difficult to treat because there is little room for error; also I have a condition which causes me to bruise much more easily, so being treated with the cannula was very important. My... More

Dr. Hui is Truly Amazing! - Brooklyn, NY - Dr. Hui is by far the best cosmetic doctor I have ever been to. Aside from being so lovely and personable, her talent cannot be understated. She gave me a botox injection in my forehead and juvaderm filler to build volume in my cheeks and temples, as well as my lips. The end result was beautiful and natural. During my visits Dr. Hui creates a very pleasant and calm (and never rushed)... More

Hormonal Acne Treatment - San Francisco, CA - Dr. Hui is a miracle worker!

Got the BEST Results Ever with Restylane Silk - San Francisco, CA - So, I came across Dr. Hui and decided to try a different doctor to fill my lips this time. Dr. Hui did an AMAZING job with Restylane Silk, and I had almost no swelling (she gave me prednisone). I have always swelled up like a balloon after a filler procedure, and have to stay home for a couple days. But today, I was able to make it to my night class, so it's unreal how much little downtime I needed. I will still go back to Dr. Hui just because her artistic eye is really, really on point. She also has an aesthetic consultant (forget her name :/) during the procedure–almost like a second opinion (I've never seen that before..other doctors just put it wherever they felt like at the time). Normally, I'm OCD when it comes to my appearance, and other doctors have left me somewhat unsatisfied during post-op (which makes me go back and re-fill another area...). Every person is different, so even though I might not have swollen, doesn't mean that the product will work the same for everyone. But just thought I'd give credit when it's due. More

58 Year Old Woman with Aging Skin (Fines Lines and Wrinkles) Great Experience with Dermatologist Andrea Hui. Brooklyn, NY - As I mentioned in my review (also pasted below) Dr Andrea Hui is a wonderful dermatologist because of her skill, compassion, knowledge of the face and body. Like me, I know for a fact her patients get their desired results. This is the reason I gave Dr Andrea Hui the well deserved best rating in all categories.Review:I am a 58 year old woman and my skin was proof of that before I met Dr Andrea Hui. I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to write one for Dr. Hui, a wonderful dermatologist. I met Dr. Hui during her residency at Downstate and followed her into her practice. She spends the majority of her time in San Francisco but when she comes back to NYC I book an appointment. Why would I when I have access to all the NYC dermatologists? It's because she is that good; I trust her because she cares about her patients. She is compassionate, kind, and listens to me and what I am looking to accomplish. She is able to translate the desire into the result. I find it so important to have a comfortable relationship with any doctor and listening is always key. Dr Hui approaches her work like the artist she is so she understands the anatomy and how to use botox, fillers, and lasers to get the best results. I am proof of that! Take the leap! I believe like me you will be so happy with the results. More

She is ethical and extremely skilled--she even teaches other doctors how to improve their technique. She also makes each patient feel like they are her only concern.

You Owe It to Yourself! - San Francisco, CA - You owe it to yourself to get Miradry! For so long I denied myself the treatment because I was scared it wasn't safe. With the saline injections and use of tumescent anesthesia, there is little to no risk of nerve damage anymore. The procedure itself was relatively painless, just a few needle sticks and a slight burning sensation every now and then. I would rate it a 3 out of 10 at most... More
