Revolutionary Non-Surgical Lifting Procedure Now Offered in South Carolina Exclusively at Germain Dermatology

Jowls got you down? 

Take years off your look on your lunch break with the revolutionary, first and only FDA Cleared Non-Invasive Lifting Procedure, Ultherapand is now being offered for the first time in South Carolina exclusively at Germain Dermatology in Mount Pleasant. Ultherapy is a non-invasive application of focused ultrasound technology for skin tightening and lifting


From turkey necks to sagging brows, Ultherapy allows Dr. Marguerite Germain of Germain Dermatology 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. 


This procedure, which takes about 30 to 60 minutes, is taking the nation by storm and is approximately one quarter of the price of a traditional surgical facelift. Most patients only need one treatment and the best candidates are women and men who are noticing sagging of the brow, wrinkling around the brow, jowls and the dreaded turkey neck.  


“Ultrasound is a safe technology that has been used in medicine for decades. With the new addition of Ultherapy, patients in South Carolina now have the opportunity to try this unprecedented application of the technology for the first time in cosmetic dermatology,” says Dr. Marguerite Germain, MD, a board certified dermatologist at Germain Dermatology. “Ultherapy addresses the loss of tone – which something that is difficult, if not impossible to address with traditional surgical approaches.” 

Results get better over a two to three month period as collagen and elastin is restructured and newer and stronger collagen grows. 


Ultherapy has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Marie Claire magazine, Health magazine, SELF, and on national television programs including Extra, Rachael Ray Show, E!, CBS Early Show and more.
