There is a new product at Germain Dermatology and our patients have fallen in love! The Germain Rx Advanced Vitamin C Brightening Serum is quickly becoming our most popular product.
This brightening Vitamin C serum delivers skin enhancing benefits of expertly combined ingredients to achieve improved skin texture and tone resulting in healthier looking skin.
How does it work? Dr. Oz explains…
One of the most powerful functions of vitamin C is its role in the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As you age, collagen breaks down and wrinkles begin to form. Stabilizing your skin’s levels of vitamin C can help to counteract wrinkle formation by increasing collagen production.
When it comes to treating age spots, you don’t need chemical peels and lasers – it turns out that vitamin C can have almost the same results! Age spots are essentially sun damage, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, vitamin C protects against and may repair UV damage like discoloration and fine lines.
Your Anti-Aging Rx
Taking vitamin C through a supplement or food is beneficial to your health, but to specifically target signs of aging on your face, topical vitamin C is best. In fact, applying vitamin C to the skin can be 20 times more effective than taking it orally.
Suitable for all skin types, the Germain Rx Advanced Vitamin C Brightening Serum is made to brighten and even out skin tone, tighten your skin, help lighten hormonal pigmentation and ward off wrinkles. Order online or stop by our office today!
A few months ago we previewed the soon-to-be approved facial filler, VOLUMA… and now it is exclusively available at Germain Dermatology! Always on the cutting edge of procedures, Dr. Marguerite Germain is proud to be among the first to introduce JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, a revolutionary facial volumizer, to the Charleston area. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a new injectable volumizer that delivers a smoother more youthful appearance to your cheeks, cheekbones, and chin, safely, in as little as 15-30 minutes with results lasting up to two years.
VOLUMA™ XC, produced by JUVÉDERM, is the first and only filler approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in adults over the age of 21. Results are projected to last up to two years, compared to the 6-12 month window of past released hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Restylane, Prevelle and basic Juvederm. It was also created to be smoother than other HA facial fillers, making it easier to inject during treatment.
If you look at the below photos- you can see the faces before treatment (on the left side of the face) and the after treatment (right side of the face). As you can see it looks completely natural and subtly removes problem lines.
Jill (above) was treated for ‘smile lines’.
Niffery (above) was treated for lines around her lips.
Dr. Marguerite Germain, board certified dermatologist, was selected among a small group of doctors to participate in a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC training and advisory board conference in Boston earlier this year. There, she received personal training for the new volumizer, as well as a firsthand look at the immediate and long-term results of the product. She has attended multiple training seminars for this product leading up to its FDA approval this month, and will be the only Charleston area dermatologist with this magnitude of exposure and knowledge of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC.
For more information on the procedure or to schedule a consultation call us at Germain Dermatology- (843) 881-4440 or contact us through email on the website.
We can’t wait to hear what you think of the results!
