Back to School...with Acne


School is back in session and we've already been seeing a lot of middle schoolers and teenagers who are dealing with acne. As most of us know, acne is the most common skin disorder affecting more than 40 million Americans! But knowing how to take care of your face is key. 


1. Start off with an appointment with us. We have flexible hours so if your child needs to be seen after school, let us know. Making an appointment with a dermatologist can help your child get on the right track towards clearer skin. 


2. When your dermatologist creates a regimen for you, stick to it. If you don't see results immediately, that's OK, just stick to it and you will. 


3. Don't pop, squeeze or pick at your acne. Trust us, we know it's tempting...but you can leave yourself with unsightly scars. 


4. Use noncomedogenic cosmetics, oil-free sunscreens and cosmetics. 


Remember, acne isn't curable but it is treatable. So get on a regimen now. Call us 881-4440 for your appointment.

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.
