Kids don't want to go back to school with acne ~ our Germain Rx Acne products are on sale. Your teen will thank you. Shop online and use code B2SCHOOL or visit our offices in Mount Pleasant and Summerville the week of August 13-17, 2018.
From the AAD, "Telling your teen that the pimples, blackheads, and other blemishes will eventually clear on their own may do more harm than good. While waiting for acne to clear on its own, your teen’s self-esteem could plummet. Many studies show that having acne tends to lower self-esteem. Kids who have acne can also be bullied. Classmates may call them names like “pizza face” or “crater face.” They may tell them to wash their face. Bullying can also lower self-esteem. Studies show that self-esteem rises when acne clears. Treatment can help clear acne. Treating acne now can also prevent acne from worsening. Without treatment, acne sometimes becomes severe. When severe acne clears, it can leave permanent acne scars."read more here.
Germain Dermatology announces the introduction of Emsculpt-- a groundbreaking new approach to sculpting the abdomen and the buttocks --that simultaneously addresses both muscle and fat. Emsculpt is now available at both Germain Dermatology office locations: 612 Seacoast Parkway in Mount Pleasant and 602 N. Main Street in Summerville.
Dr. Germain is the first to offer Emsculpt to the Lowcountry. This is the ONLY technology that builds muscle and burns fat simultaneously, all while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. Free consultations are available to see if you're a candidate by calling (843) 881-4440.
Bringing an entirely new technology to the body shaping category, Emsculpt utilizes HIFEM® energy to induce powerful muscle contractions, which builds muscles and burns fat. FDA-cleared for the improvement of abdominal tone and strengthening of the abdominal muscles, Emsculpt helps patients achieve next-level, contouring results.
Emsculpt at Germain Dermatology is FDA-cleared to strengthen, tone and firm not only the abdomen but ALSO the buttocks safely; and is a non-invasive alternative to popular, yet controversial, surgical and injectable procedures.
Muscles represent about 35% of the human body, but existing aesthetic treatments only address fat. Emsculpt introduces a first of its kind application of a unique magnetic field. HIFEM technology penetrates through skin to impact fat, as well as muscle tissues. Once penetrated, the energy induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions that are accompanied by a rapid metabolic reaction in fat cells to not only strengthen and build muscle, but also reduce fat.
Delivering these 20,000 muscular contractions per 30 minute session, increases the strength and tone of the gluteal region to help even athletic and fit patients take their buttocks to the next level. The unique application of the HIFEM technology, penetrates through skin to impact muscle tissue. Once penetrated, the energy induces supramaximal muscle contractions that are not achievable by the human brain and results into toning, firming and strengthening of the buttocks.
Emsculpt brings an entirely new energy to the category, as well as offers a long awaited alterantive to more invasive procedures as interest in butt augmentation continues to rise.According to RealSelf data, during the last 12 months* consumers have visited the site more than 4 million times to research the Brazilian Butt Lift, and the procedure has rose to the #3 most researched surgical treatment of 2018*.
In clinical evaluations measuring the efficacy of HIFEM therapy for non-invasive buttock augmentation and lifting, patient satisfaction levels averaged high, independent of weight loss. While 95.4% of participates reported satisfaction1 with treatment results and 85% reported significant improvement2 in lift and muscular tone of the buttocks.
As tested in five unique abdominal clinical studies utilizing all four established methods of evaluation -- including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Histology --Emsculpt delivered consistent results in muscle gain and fat loss:
19% reduction in subcutaneous abdominal fat
16% increase in muscle mass
Average waist reduction of 4.4cm
96% satisfaction with treatment results
“I am thrilled to introduce this new treatment to our patients, Emsculpt goes beyond waistline reduction to address abdominal contouring through muscle toning, and this technology is truly a game-changer for the industry. It alleviates the downtime and risk associated with buttock procedures, as up until now, we have not had an effective, non-invasive option to offer patients.” said Dr. Marguerite Germain, voted Charleston’s Best Dermatologist for 13 consecutive years.
“This technology is truly a game-changer for the industry, as the demand for butt lift procedures is at an all time high and the battle of the belly bulge is a struggle for many. Emsculpt goes beyond waist line reduction to address abdominal contouring through muscle tone. This combination of reducing fat and building muscle is what my patients have been looking for.”
Dr. Germain is the dermatology leader in non-invasive procedures and treatments for the face and sculpting the body.
For optimal results, Dr. Germain recommends four 30-minute treatment sessions over the course of a two-week period. Best results will be seen after 3-months with continued improvement over a 6-month time period.
Free Consultations are available to see if you’re a candidate for Emsculpt, call (843) 881-4440 or visit germaindermatology.com
This approach uses cold to treat everything from rheumatoid arthritis to aging skin, and can help with postsurgical recuperation. The treatment welcomes a patient into a single-person Cryosauna, which offers safe, one- to three-minute exposures to very low temperatures. This exposure has anti-inflammatory benefits that extend into the weeks and months after a chill session. The whole-body approach is ideal for systemic problems, as well as musculoskeletal injuries, psoriasis and other skin disorders, and weight management.
