With the cooler temperatures it might be difficult to think about slipping on your bikini and heading to the beach but now is the time to get your body ready for summer. The New Year brings resolutions of tighter bodies and healthier lifestyles but why not make your resolution to clear up your back skin. 



According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the number one skin problem in the United States, effecting 40 -50 million individuals. Acne is caused by clogged pores in our skin and although many suffer from facial acne, back acne is also extremely common. Acne can cause people to have low self-esteem, become painful and cause scaring.

Get Your Clear Skin Back!

The American Academy of Dermatology reports that acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. Approximately 80% of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 suffer from acne with many continuing to have acne into their 40s and beyond. Germain Dermatology in Mount Pleasant is proud to be the first and only practice in South Carolina to offer FDA-Cleared Acne Clearing System with visible results, Acleara. 





Acleara Acne Clearing System is the first continuously-cooled system FDA-cleared to treat mild to moderate inflammatory acne, comedonal acne and pustular acne. The Acleara Acne Clearing System is powered by an advanced vacuum and filtered broadband light technology. The vacuum cleans pores by extracting build up of sebaceous material. Along with the targeted heating of sebaceous glands, the endogenous light activates porphryns to destroy P. acnes and reduces sebum production through photodynamic action.





Topical creams and oral medications can be effective treatments for acne outbreaks, but they can be expensive and can dry and irritate sensitive skin. What’s more, acne that occurs on backs and chests can be difficult to treat topically because of the large surface area. Treating acne with pulsed light can deliver better aesthetic results, especially on inflammatory acne, without the side effects associated with topical and oral acne medications. 






This is good news for the thousands of acne sufferers in the state who have tried a variety of treatments without success. Benefits of using the Acleara Acne Clearing System are:
-Visible Improvement: Reduction in peri-lesional erythema and a visible calming of lesions  
-Hygienic and Comfortable Treatments: Reduced risk of cross contamination and no anesthetics, numbing or cooling gels required
-Economical: Eliminates external cool sprays and anesthetics costs 
-Fast Treatments: Full face treatment typically in under 15 minutes
“We see a wide variety of people who struggle with acne at all ages. The Acleara Acne Clearing System has so many benefits, we knew we wanted to offer it to the acne sufferers of South Carolina as soon as possible. This system gives new hope to those out there who have tried everything.” said board-certified dermatologist, Marguerite Germain, M.D. 
Acne sufferers are encouraged to take advantage of the special introductory offer and receive 20% off their first treatment, for more details, call (843) 881-4440.
