Feeling Sluggish?

Often we hear from Charleston moms that they're not feeling themselves. From running the kids to practice to dance class, there's never enought time in the day leaving many of them tired and completely out of energy. 


Here's some easy ways to get a good boost of energy: 




1. Drink water: You may be dehydrated which is making you feel sluggish, so grab a glass of water and enjoy. 


2. Stop and Breathe: Sometimes, taking a moment to close your eyes, breathe deeply and "meditate" of sorts is a good energy builder. 






3. Get up & mooooove! Moving around --even for 5 minutes -- can increase your circulation. 


4. Step away from the computer: Of course when you're finished reading this blog. Breaks from a computer really help! 










5. Be thankful: Often, we're all caught up with the daily hub-bu of life we forget to be thankful for all the wonderful gifts we have. When you are thankful, you'll smile and that will give you energy too. 










And if you're still feeling sluggish, we now offer Metabohealth Vitamin Injections. There's no appointment needed and they help increase your energy and boost your metabolism. We are offering them for $25 each or a package of 4 for $75. Stop in our office at Germain Dermatology in Mount Pleasant at 612 Seacoast Parkway. 


Thanks for reading!

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.
