* Botox $9.75/unit 
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.

* Buy 1 syringe of dermal filler and get 50% OFF EACH ADDITIONAL Syringe!
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. 
*Dr. Germain performs all injections
*Magic Eyes 20% OFF! 
Magic Eyes is the next generation in optimum eye care. This moisturizing treatment contains Retinol to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as peptides to stimulate lymphatic drainage and increase skin firmness.

The procedure takes about an hour and is literally harmless.

Why lasers can help your skin

Take Advantage of September Specials to reveal your GLOW! 





At Germain Dermatology, we have a wide variety of state of the art lasers that can treat a variety of dermatologic conditions such as sagging skin, wrinkles, acne, scarring, broken vessels, unwanted body hair and more. 


People of all ages can benefit from the use of the dermatologic lasers. For those who wish to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, laser toning is a great choice. This treatment, which is recommended for 3 initial treats 4 weeks apart, helps stimulate your body to produce new collagen and tighten wrinkles deep into the layers of skin. This non-invasice treatment has no downtime ~ which is a must in today’s busy world! 


A patient favorite, the Laser Illumination Peel unveils your underlying youthful glow by peeling back layers of dead dull skin. It improves texture and evens out skin tone while increasing collagen production. For the month of September, one treatment is $375 (a $50 savings!) As you can see from the before and after photo, Lauren’s skin looks healthier with less sun damage and melasma. 


If you’re plagued with acne, breakthrough the surface to clearer skin. With our acne therapy, you will receive a combination laser treatment plan designed to target overactive oil production, reduce break-outs, decrease redness and diminish acne scarring. We’ve seen some wonderful success stories from this therapy. 


So no matter what you’re looking for when it comes to laser options, we can help! Call us today. 843-881-4440 or visit us online at germaindermatology.com

Fall into Autumn with a Glow

It’s crazy to think that September is here. The kids are back in school and we’re all getting into a routine for fall. As the weather changes in the Lowcountry, it’s important that you transition your skin into the next season. Here’s some helpful tips to keep you fresh for the fall season: 
Wrinkles aren’t the only culprit when it comes to adding years to your face, sun spots also make you look older. Revive your glow with a laser illumination peel and erase that sun damage with a good product regimen. We suggest the Germain Rx Erase Regimen


Drink water. As the temperatures get cooler or as cool as they can be in Charleston in the fall, some forget to drink all the proper amount of water as they did in the sweltering summer. 




Pay attention to those elbows and heels. Weekends on the boat and beach wreak havoc on your feet. Use a product that contains glycolic acid to slough away the dead skin like our Germain Rx Heel & Elbow Cream



Transition to a thicker and more intense moisturizer. During the fall and winter, your skin needs more moisture, especially if it’s already prone to dryness. 



It’s all about the eyes! The thin, gentle skin around your eyes need to quench their thirst often or you will look tired and worn out. Try our Magic Eyes Germain Rx product which has caffeine and green tea polyphenols that work well for those sensitive areas. 

And of course, make your appointment for your yearly skin check. Now is the perfect time to call us and set up at time to focus on your skin. Call 843-881-4440 or request a consultation online. 

Also, take a moment to check out our specials for September! Go ahead, PAMPER yourself! 


August is Heating Up!

Can you believe we’re already in the month of August? Time flies! Dr. Germain has been taking advantage of learning even more about anti-aging processes this summer and has attended great events and symposiums around the country like the World Anti-Aging Congress & Exposition and the Cosmetic Bootcamp to keep Charleston dermatology on the cutting edge. 


We have some delightful specials for August and now’s the time to take advantage of them. Our August Product of the Month is Magic Eyes and it’s a patient favorite. Once our patients try it once they’re hooked! We see so many women who spend their hard-earned money on drug store products that don’t work for them. Sometimes they’re not right for their skin, other times they’re laden with harsh chemicals that irritate sensitive skin and the list goes on & on. We offer skin consultations that can help you get on track to bring out the best you. And if you haven’t tried a Germain Rx product yet, now’s the time.
