May is Skin Cancer/Melanoma Awareness month, a cause that we take very seriously at Germain Dermatology. Skin Cancers, unfortunately, will effect 1 in 5 Americans despite the advances in medicine, which is why it is so important to use this month to raise the awareness and spread the education needed to prevent this disease!
The American Academy of Dermatology launched a campaign called SPOT Skin Cancer encouraging thousands of it’s members and supporters to commit to raising awareness and prevention options for Melanoma and Skin Cancers each May.
We are PROUD to be supporting this campaign and kicking off the month with SPOT Orange Melanoma Monday. A day to rally together in the effort of educating the public on how to perform self exams, how to get proper skin screenings and ways to protect themselves from becoming a statistic. Show your support on Monday, May 4th by wearing your best Orange gear (We understand this may be an issue for Gamecock fans, but it is for a good cause!).
Get your whole office to join, your friends, your family, whomever you can gather and snap a picture in support of Melanoma Monday. Share your photo on our Facebook, tag us on Twitter @Germain_Beauty or Instagram @GermainDermatology and one lucky person, office or group will have the chance to win a FREE Germain Rx Sunscreen of their choice. We will be sure to show off our staff rocking their orange, too!

Just in time for ‘Bikini Season’ Germain Dermatology is now offering a NEW post CoolSculpting procedure for quicker, more noticeable fat reduction results- The Fat Cracker.
While the name is humorous this is no joke. Shock Wave Therapy applied to areas post CoolSculpting procedures is said to improve results by 20% and show noticeable changes in 8, rather than 12, weeks time.
Shock Wave Therapy is a short, but intense, energy wave which travels faster than the speed of sound. This treatment not only improves results and speeds up fat reduction it also is a viable tool for treating cellulite associated with fat.
Call us today for your free consultation, and have the body you want by Summer!
