Dr. Tsai is the absolute best and my only regret is I didn’t consult her sooner. I had several spots that showed up on my face and even though they looked the same to me, she explained why they were completely different and recommended different courses of action. The reviewers are spot on here – she is extremely knowledgeable about skincare, she answers all questions thoroughly, doesn’t rush you, and she is very honest about the treatment so you don’t have unrealistic expectations. Post treatment, my skin did exactly what she said it would do. She’s amazing.

I cannot say enough good about Dr. Tsai. She is truly holistic in that she relates to clients on a very human level–she genuinely cares about other people and this translates. She does not ‘sell’ you yet is honest in her assessment of what can be done to improve appearance and skin condition.
Basically, she’s just a good person with lots of medical expertise.

Dr. Tsai helped my melasma, acne, and age spots. She looked through my products and refused to let me buy her products until I finished what she thought could help my problems. She is thoughtful and patient with all my concerns and questions. I’m finally able to go without makeup again. Ask for her before and after photos!

I don’t live in San Francisco, but split my time between North Sonoma County and Paris. It is worth the effort to come into the city to have a session with Dr. Tsai. She is caring and careful and her staff always works to accommodate my schedule when I need an appointment with the Doctor.
After going to 2 different local Austin physicians, I realized that Dr. Tsai’s experience and technique in the administration of aesthetic products was far superior to what I had experienced in Austin. I decided soon after to continue seeing Dr. Tsai. I now travel to San Francisco 2 times a year just to see Dr. Tsai. The additional travel expenses is well worth it as Dr. Tsai is one of the best skin care specialist in the business. I look forward to my next trip out to San Francisco! 10 out of 10.

In addition, she has extensive experience supplementing dermal fillers with Botox injections. Treatment for lines on the forehead, between brows, crows feet, mouth, neck and jawline.

Laser hair removal treatments consist of a simple beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle, disabling the follicle without affecting the surrounding skin. A minimum of six treatments is usually required with the procedure to attain results suitable for men and women and all areas of the body.
Dr. Tsai primarily uses these treatments to control moderate to severe acne, rosacea, sun damage, collagen production. With repeated treatments, patients typically see a significant long-term reduction in acne symptoms, breakouts, redness, hyperpigmentation and inflammation.
People with hyperhidrosis can produce far more sweat than is needed to control their body temperature. Botox can be injected into the armpits and palms, blocking the action of nerves that supply the eccrine (sweat) glands. This stops the glands from producing sweat.
Dr. Tsai uses Botox injections as a non-invasive treatment for facial slimming, contouring of angular jaw lines as well as treatment for jaw clenching/teeth grinding (Bruxism), by relaxing and weakening the masseter muscles.
Red or broken veins on the face are a common problem. Dr. Tsai can technology safely and effective remove small, spider-like veins on the face and nose called telangectasias. Also common are angiomas.
