5 out of 5 stars Botox

Best Dermatologist Here - Mount Pleasant, SC

She is always friendly and takes the time to ask about myself on a personal level. I wouldn't think of using any other doctor in the area.

41 and Tired of Buying Pants Large Enough to Fit my Thighs but Three Sizes Too Large for my Waist. Mount Pleasant, SC

Better Than I Expected - Charleston, SC

I am a patient of Dr. Germain's and I have attended a seminar on Ultherapy done by her. She was very thorough about the expectations.

Crows Feet and Crease Between Eyes - Mount Pleasant, SC

I've gotten Botox or dysport at 4 different places in Charleston, Dr. Germaine is my favorite. I wouldn't go anywhere else again. Her office is very busy so you can't get appointments last minute. They always do a great job with whatever budget I'm working with and don't push too much filler on you. I like the natural look.

Had my Ultherapy Procedure Yesterday! - Charleston, SC

My consult was with the doctor but Lauren was the wonderful aesthitician who administered the procedures. I was very, very pleased with the way everything was explained, the comfort level and way I was treated. I had a wonderful experience. Of course, I'm anxious for a few weeks to pass so I can really assess my results and give a more accurate review.

Fast, Fabulous Results - Mount Pleasant, SC

This was my first appointment with this doctor. Before I was seen other dermatologist in the area but price is what make me change. I'm glad I did because this dermatologist was a little more aggressive and results much faster and amassing. By aggressive this is what I mean. Usually I have 42 units Botox, now I received 60, make a big difference. Same with the filler one syringe vs two....

My Experience with Zeltiq - Charleston, SC

Dr. G is great! This will be so worth it if I end up with a flat stomach!

Fraxel Hurts - Charleston, SC

Never have problems with this practice. Use them for medical & cosmetic. Very organized & professional .

Not Sure--over Three Months and Do Not Know--really Cannot Tell Much Difference - Charleston, SC

Saw her on the internet, because i was searching for a Dr. who had this machine in SC. This is the first location in SC. The clinician who performed the procedure was very nice and seeemed to have been well-trained by the Ulthera personnel. No one has followed up with me to see if i like the results of the procedure, but i am not surprised about that. Dr. Germain is extremely personable and engaging, although she does not perform the procedure.
