Fall in Love with our February Specials

We are starting out the month of love, flowers and chocolates with a few fabulous specials! These are great gift ideas, or wonderful ways to pamper yourself for the holiday!


· *  Botox $9.75/unit (Receive instant $50 rebate on Botox)
BOTOX works by relaxing the specific muscles that contract to cause wrinkles. Although a great deal of skill and focus is required on the part of the physician, for patients, BOTOX treatments in South Carolina will actually seem very simple and easy. Just apply some ice to the treatment area, a few tiny injections, a slight amount of pressure – and, before you know it, the treatment is over!

Dr. Germain recommends that her patients keep up with BOTOX treatments every 3 to 4 months to maintain beautiful, prolonged wrinkle reduction.

·  * Dysport $3.00/unit
Dr. Germain also offers Dysport™, a BOTOX alternative. She may recommend Dysport for some patients and can discuss the differences between the two treatments with you. Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

·  * Buy 1 syringe of dermal filler and get the 2ndsyringe 25% off!
Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, RADIESSE®, SCULPTRA® Aesthetic, Perlane® and Restylane® can replace lost volume in a non surgical treatment. Dr. Marguerite Germain uses these injectable treatments with skill and artistry to temporarily fill-in wrinkles and plump up facial features for a natural-looking, refreshed appearance.

Some fillers, such as JUVÉDERM XC, have incorporated lidocaine for a more comfortable injection experience. For other fillers, Dr. Germain may use a topical anesthetic to ensure that your treatment is as pleasant as possible. She takes the time with each and every patient to be sure that she is accomplishing your aesthetic goals and, in the process, ensuring your comfort both during and after the procedure.

·  * 3 Vials of SCULPTRA for $2,100 (Receive a $50 mail in rebate PER VIAL!)
SCULPTRA Aesthetic is a long lasting dermal filler with subtle results over time; SCULPTRA aesthetic is an easy way to get a natural-looking, youthful appearance. Made with poly-L-lactic acid, SCULPTRA gradually replaces lost collagen for results that last for up to 2 years.
·  * 20% off CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq is an FDA cleared technology that uses cold therapy to freeze and destroy fat cells permanently, no surgery required. Zeltiq uses precisely targeted cold therapy in a comfortable treatment room.  The process zaps the energy from the fat cell, causing it to die over a period of 2-4 months. It crystallizes the lipids in the fat cells causing the slow breakdown of the cells and then is released through your body’s normal metabolic processes. The procedure takes about an hour and is literally harmless

·  * UltraFrax:  Ultherapy +Fraxel  $900 Discount THIS MONTH!
Ultherapy allows physicians to focus sound waves deep under the skin to heat, lift and tighten loose skin without needles, cutting surgery or any damage to the skin’s surface. New collagen is naturally created and restore skins youthfulness. In addition, the deeper layers of the skin are thermally tightened and contract, to lift the skin. This latest FDA cleared technology is being used primarily on the face to lift sagging brows, reduce excess skin on the lids and open up the eyes thus wiping away years for a younger, rejuvenated look.

Fraxel is the original fractional laser treatment that works below the skin’s surface from the top down, addressing imperfections like fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and age spots. Fraxel light energy stimulates your skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating skin cells below the surface to help smooth the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles and scars. Fraxel only treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective.

Rosacea

It’s a common skin condition that we see in our office weekly, and it’s believed to affect more than 14 million Americans….Rosacea. Usually it starts to appear on places like your chin, nose, cheeks and forehead. But unlike other skin conditions, rosacea usually appears between the ages of 30-50 and sorry ladies, but it affects you more than men. The occurrence of rosacea is about three times more in women, than it is in men. 
At first, it may seem like a sunburn that doesn’t seem to go away and you may flush more often. Small bumps called papules may grow and pustules may form. Unfortunately, there is no cure for rosacea but once you are aware of what triggers it and on a proper regimen, your condition is manageable. There are plenty of celebrities that live with rosacea including former President Bill Clinton, Cameron Diaz and Renee Zellweger and they all look fabulous and so can you. 
The National Rosacea Society, which conducted a rosacea survey, discovered that close to 70% of Americans with rosacea felt a low self-esteem, while more than 40 percent began shying away from meeting people because of embarrassment. If you start to notice the symptoms of rosacea, don’t wait to make your appointment with us.
Symptoms of Rosacea: 

~Flushing and facial redness
~Bumps or pimples on the skin, either small and solid (papules) or pus-filled (pustules)
~Stinging sensations that may be more noticeable when smiling, frowning, or squinting   Cleansers, cosmetics, or other facial products may increase the irritation
~Thickening of the skin of the nose 
Like I mentioned above, knowing what triggers your rosacea is key…there’s some factors that many people seem to fall under like exposure to the extreme heat and cold conditions, spicy food, alcohol and some medicines and cosmetics. 
We’re always here to help, so if you think you may have signs of rosacea come see us!
