Effective and safe
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
"I've been seeing Dr. Austin for 4+ years to treat my TMJ. She puts Xeomin (different Botox brand) into my jawline every 3 months. Not only are my TMJ headaches gone, but my face is slimmer. Dr. Austin recently suggested starting Xeomin in my forehead for my wrinkles. Now my forehead looks great and I'll continue to add this to my appointments. Thanks Dr. Austin! She is an expert!"- A.A. / Yelp / Mar 06, 2019
"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
"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."- R. / RealSelf / Nov 07, 2018
What to Expect with Xeomin®
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.
