Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve is here and we are spending time with our loved ones, families and friends. All of us at Germain Dermatology want to wish a you a very Merry Christmas. We will be closed on December 26 in honor of the Christmas holiday. We will reopen on Tuesday, December 27. 


During your weekend if you find yourself cruising the internet, don't forget to vote for Dr. Germain for Best Dermatologist for the Charleston City Paper's Best Of 2012. Dr. Germain has won Best Dermatologist for the last 6 years and couldn't be more grateful, and she would be delighted to make it win number 7! 


To vote, go here! 



Here's 7 Reasons you should vote for Dr. Germain: 


1. She's caring. She doesn't hesitate to give her cell phone number to her patients when they need her. Day or night, she's there for them. 


2. She has a big heart. Dr. Germain lights up when she sees her mom, Mimzi. Mimzi is the light of her life and Dr. Germain works hard to make sure they enjoy every minute they can together. 


3. She's helpful. She has helped many patients when they're at wits end...from acne to hair loss, from scarring to wrinkles...she there to help. 


4. She's smart. As a board certified Dermatologist, Dr. Germain continues to expand her knowledge and education by attending conferences and classes on the latest in Anti-aging advances, skin cancer and more. 


5. She's happy. When you make an appointment with her, she is always happy to see you. She loves to hug her patients and wants them to know they mean a lot to her. 


6. She's discrete. Many women don't like to admit they get wrinkle reducing procedures like Botox, Dysport and fillers and that's why Dr. Germain's office was specifically designed with two separate waiting rooms, giving patients the privacy they deserve. 


7. She's giving. From helping the Center for Women to being a drop off location for the Toys for Tots to sponsoring Women's Wellness Night at the Charleston RiverDogs game, Dr. Germain is part of the community and continues to help. 


For the last 6 years, our community has voted for her, and we hope you will make it lucky number 7! 


Thanks again! Merry Christmas!

Dr. Germain & her mom, Mimzi wish you a very Merry Christmas!

The Best Treatment for the Holiday Season



The holiday season always brings lots of parties, company Christmas parties, cookie exchanges and even ugly Christmas sweater get-togethers. No one wants to attend large gathering with unwanted facial or body hair. Avoid the embarrassment by trying laser hair removal at Germain Dermatology. This quick procedure is done with GentleYAG® and GentleLASE® lasers specially designed for cosmetic hair removal. 


Laser hair removal results are instant and depending on the size of the treatment area you might need a couple of treatments to be completely hair-free. The procedure only causes slight discomfort but the result of hair-free legs, arms or upper lip is well worth it. 


This time of year is perfect for getting your Laser treatment so you can be smooth as silk for the spring. 
So, don’t waste your holiday season plucking, shaving or waxing and try Laser Hair Removal with us. Have a Merry Christmas instead of a hairy one!
