I am so impressed with the staff and quality of service at the Dermatology & Laser Center of Charleston. Having your face on screen in front of millions of people makes you be even more selective about a Dermatology Center. And I can honestly say that Dr. Schlesinger and his staff are not only friendly but also very knowledgeable and very good at what they do!
I know I found the right place in Charleston and now I see why people come from all over to see Dr. Schlesinger!

“I am so pleased with my results…it has been wonderful getting compliments on how great my face looks!”
As a cancer survivor, I was accustomed to visiting plenty of physician offices. It was a pleasant surprise when I visited DLCC - they were incredible. The level of care and service in this office is outstanding! I feel like part of the family. Dr. Schlesinger treated me with kindness and compassion. Lori has given me a number of laser treatments which produced awesome results! Danyiel gives a really terrific, relaxing massage. The whole office is a great bunch of people who are truly committed to meeting my personal needs. One friend even asked another friend if I had “secretly” had plastic surgery. My skin looks and feels younger, and I am having fewer and fewer breakouts! Finally, after 35 years of battling blemishes! I am so thankful I found the Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston and you will be too!
“This office is great for all your medical and beauty needs, it is a one stop shop.”
As a business woman who stays on the go personally and professionally, I needed a dermatology office that was easily accessible and close to my home and office. Someone that could take care of all of my skin care needs. Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston was perfect! Dr. Schlesinger was professional, precise and caring. The staff was terrific and made me really feel at ease. They provide a variety of services with a great bunch of smiles. They truly do bring the best of the medical and cosmetic worlds together. My advice, and you ought to take it, go see the crew at DLCC to meet your dermatology needs – you will be glad you did. Thanks to Dr. Todd and all the girls!
My experience and treatment at Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston was wonderful. Great results! The staff is professional, caring, very knowledgeable and friendly. Results of the treatment on my face are unbelievable.
Before having the treatment I must admit that I was somewhat skeptical. However, after the first treatment there was noticeable change, for the better. Needless to say, at the end of my treatments results were unbelievable! My family was amazed and I must admit that I was as well. What these treatments did for my self esteem is beyond measure. I never hesitate to tell people about my personal experiences and refer everyone to this great practice. Thank you so much.
My husband, John R. Suttle, lost all of his hair in under 2 months due to alopecia areata. I noticed this on September 25, 2008 as a patch the size of a quarter developed above his left ear. I'm a cosmetologist and am fully aware of skin, hair and nail issues when I see them on clients. I've had numerous clients over the years who have suffered from varying degrees of alopecia. Some are still struggling with their permanent hair loss.
I first hammered out the Mayo Clinic's website on alopecia, and just as expected, my observation was correct. I told John to not worry, I'd get him into our doctor and then to my dermatologist, Dr. Schlesinger. John saw our doctor on that next day, Friday, for a full work up and physical. He was booked to see Dr. Schlesinger on Wednesday and followed up with his lab results which showed nothing to explain the alopecia.
Hello, my name is Hallie Friar from Florence, South Carolina. I struggled with p. acne from the seventh grade until the middle of my junior year in high school.
I was treated by another dermatologist for over a year and I tried numerous topical creams, hormone therapy, health food store acne supplements, diet modifications, and Proactive to no avail. I was not seeing improvement in my skin for the amount of dollars I knew my parents were sinking into my complexion.
My parents saw an ad in the Charleston Post & Courier for Dr. Schlesinger's practice. They called the phone number listed in the ad, and ended up making an appointment. We were all impressed with the kind and personal way that Dr. Schlesinger and his staff genuinely treated me and my family. A great deal of suffering and sadness accompanies severe cases of teenage acne. Dr. Schlesinger listened intently to where I was emotionally. I had been diligent with all the former treatments that had been prescribed to me and it hadn't paid off.
You Will Always Be My Best Friend ...
You Know Too Much!
“Lori is amazing!!! We go to her at Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston for laser hair
removal because she is professional, fast and precise! As salon stylists, we recommend that all of our friends and
clients go to the Dermatology & Laser Center of Charleston for any service- medical or cosmetic.
Dr. Todd is a down-to-earth physician who treats our patients with kindness and compassion. After meeting him personally, he seemed really appreciative and very willing to help. No doubt about it -we will go back for many cosmetic treatments! Ginger helped us out with a great payment plan. She is sweet and understanding. All of the staff members are all very nice and pleasant."
When I looked in the mirror I saw my neck wrinkle every day right in front of my eyes! Oh, so not quite that bad…I exaggerate just a tad. But I didn't like what I saw and I wanted to do something about it.
In January of 2005, I decided to have Thermage—a revolutionary non-invasive radio frequency technology procedure that tightens skin and renews facial contours by reshaping your skin's innermost strctures. Promises, promises. Save your money! Nothing happened. And I was disappointed after paying a big chunk of change? You betcha!

The Hair on my back was a pain in my neck!
Working and relaxing on boats has been a passion of mine for many years. I simply hated the hair on my back and shoulders. I came to the Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston for laser hair removal. The staff was great and I thought, “This is going to be an awesome experience”. I was right! All they asked was that I shave before my appointment and that I needed to be sure and arrive on time. My schedule was hectic but Lori was glad to accommodate early morning appointments. Do yourself a favor and give them a call – it was a wise choice on my part!
“No one thinks Bigfoot is good looking, therefore, the hair on my back and shoulders had to go!“
My niece, Nakia, mentioned that her office, Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston, was having an Open House and looking for a male candidate that would be willing to allow them to demonstrate laser hair removal for a Men’s Night Event. I very excitedly volunteered!
I was asked to arrive with my back and shoulders clean shaven. Lori, their certified laser tech, then applied a topical numbing cream and treated me using one of the top, state-of-the-art lasers, the Candela Laser. Over the next six months, I returned once a month with results improving each time. Lori herself was very pleasantly surprised when I told her I wasn't shaving or anything else in between visits!
The entire staff is truly professional, extremely nice and gave me the results I wanted both efficiently and effectively.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with knowledge that you never walk alone…
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
