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.

Men’s skin needs TLC, too!

Traditionally when we think of skin care and cosmetic procedures we think of women, but that’s not always the case. There are hundreds of skin care products and procedures today geared toward men, but most men still have a certain stigma of using products- they shouldn’t skin care and even cosmetic procedures are just as beneficial and preventative for men as they are for women! Just because men have the persona of being rough and rugged doesn’t mean their skin is too.

For example men’s skin ages just as easily as women’s and it’s reported that only 5% of men use sunscreen on a daily basis. For men and women alike using sunscreen daily (usually within a moisturizer) is the number one method to prevent premature aging, not to mention skin cancer. Men also seem to complain about adult acne. The proper shaving technique, a cleanser for their skin type and a good moisturizer will fix the common problems of adult acne in a pinch (While also lying of the booze, staying dehydrated and keeping a distance from unhealthy greasy foods doesn’t hurt.).  Using a bar of soap from head to toe just doesn’t cut it.

There are also some great cosmetic procedures men can benefit from. Men, much more so than the average woman, constantly deal with the issue of excessive body hair. Laser hair removal is a perfect solution to this problem. It’s non-evasive, perfect for large areas of hair (ie: shoulders, back, chest) and helps reduce the amount of hair that grows back. Not to mention it is much less painful than waxing and much less of a task than trying to shave all those awkward areas. Laser hair removal is also an option for men who have severe or constant irritation when shaving facial hair.

On the opposite end most men don’t know that a dermatologist is the number one doctor to see for hair loss. A dermatologist can best determine the treatment for the hair loss, provided it is not caused by a deeper medical issue. Testosterone blocking medications and transplants are among the most popular treatments.

It’s also becoming more and more acceptable for men to use Botox, facial fillers and chemical peels. There is no shame in visiting your dermatologist for more than just a skin check. You would be surprised at what they could do for you, and what simple changes to your skin routine could do for your skin health!
