Rusty Rudder Lake Norman Closing Due To Non-Renewal of Lease

After more than 15 years of family fun, football and entertaining folks from around the world, The Rusty Rudder Lake Norman at 20210 Henderson Road will close in October due to the non-renewal of their lease. However, things at The Rudder will continue as normal through the month of September such as live music every Friday through Sunday, the showing of all Panther games and other football games with the NFL Ticket. The Rudder staff was informed today of the news.

Owners Eric Paul and Brian Johnston co-wrote this statement,  “It is with heavy hearts that we announce The Rusty Rudder Lake Norman will be closing its doors on October 3, 2016. Regrettably, our landlord has decided not to renew the lease after 15 years of business forcing us to close our doors.

We would like to thank everyone that has been a part of The Rudder over these amazing years. We have truly felt like a part of Cornelius and Lake Norman Community from day one, and we will miss it deeply.

We have been fortunate and blessed to call so many people our dear friends and part of our Rudder family over the years. We feel like we have grown with each of you celebrating milestones and many occasions, some happy and some sad, but all together as a community.

You have ALL helped grow The Rudder into what it has become since May of 2002, and we cannot express how much that means to us.

We would like to thank all of the vendors, businesses and musicians that have helped us create The Rudder along the way. Our local partners and support made a huge impact on our success.

We would like to thank the numerous members of our staff over the years. We were privileged to have each of you as a part of our team and one of the ‘family’. It was truly an honor to watch you evolve professionally and as personally through your journeys with us. Most importantly we would like to thank our families. The ones that helped us get this crazy idea started so many years ago. Each of you stood by us through all of the ups and the downs and there is honestly no way we can repay you for that.


While this chapter is closing we have nothing but fond memories, grateful hearts and appreciation for everything the Rusty Rudder Lake Norman brought us. We will continue to own and run The Rusty Rudder Mt. Pleasant, and we hope that anytime your travels bring you to Charleston you will look us up and come say hi.”

Join them for their last weekend on the lake with live music by Blue Monday on Saturday, October 1 and for the Panthers vs. Atlanta Game on Sunday, October 2 including the final Sunday Funday at the TIKI bar.



Owners Eric Paul and Brian Johnston opened the Charleston Rusty Rudder in June 2014 at 3563 N. Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant, S.C. and operations at that location will continue. Patrons are encouraged to stop by the Rudder to say goodbye.

Germain Dermatology Introduces Silhouette InstaLift™: Simple Procedure to Lift and Re-Contour a Sagging Face in An Hour

Germain Dermatology is pleased to be the first dermatology practice in South Carolina to offer the FDA-Cleared Silhouette InstaLift™ (“InstaLift”), a revolutionary non-surgical facelift designed to deliver immediate, natural-looking results using a procedure that is minimally invasive, takes less than an hour to complete and requires little patient downtime. It’s perfect for men and women who are interested in refreshing their appearance without major surgery, injections or lasers.

InstaLift enhances the contours of your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look. During the procedure, Dr. Marguerite Germain of Germain Dermatology uses sutures with bidirectional cones to reposition and elevate the skin on the face. Unlike other past suture procedures, the InstaLift utilizes sutures that are naturally absorbed by your body while stimulating the production of collagen.  


Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. This procedure meets an unmet anti-aging need; until now there was not an option for a minimally invasive method for lifting the underlying tissue of the face.

“This procedure is a game changer in the cosmetic dermatology field. For our younger patients who aren’t ready for a facelift, the InstaLift helps achieve volume restoration, skin tightening and lift in an all-in-one treatment. It’s also suitable for older patients who are medically not a candidate for surgery.” said Marguerite A. Germain, MD, owner and board-certified dermatologist at Germain Dermatology. “In the end, it’s all about each unique patient and the laxity of their skin. We want them to have the best results.” 


Silhouette InstaLift™ sutures are made in the U.S. from glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a commonly used biomedical co-polymer that is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures lift and reposition subdermal tissue while the resorbable bi-directional cones hold the sutures and facial skin in an elevated position. Over time the implanted PLGA suture and cones also stimulate collagen production to help increase and restore volume to the mid-face for natural-looking, long lasting results.

Germain Dermatology Now Offering the Latest Advancement in CoolSculpting

As the first physician to bring CoolSculpting to South Carolina more than six years ago, Dr. Marguerite Germain of Germain Dermatology is proud to be the first dermatologist to offer the new CoolAdvantage applicator; which delivers the CoolSculpting® cooling technology at a lower temperature, reducing treatment time nearly in half to only 35 minutes per treatment.The enhanced cup design gives the patient a more comfortable experience while still effectively targeting and eliminating stubborn fat. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the non-invasive treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flanks. 

The CoolSculpting procedure works by gently cooling targeted fat cells in the body to induce a natural cell death, resulting in a permanent elimination of fat without affecting or harming surrounding tissue. 


Millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been performed by nearly 4,000 CoolSculpting systems in over 70 countries. Market research indicates up to a 95 percent customer satisfaction rate with the CoolSculpting procedure. 

“Since I was the first to offer this procedure to the state years ago, I have seen it transform not only parts of the body, it also transforms how the patient feels about themselves. We’re all bothered by certain areas of fat that no matter how much we exercise, it doesn’t budge. With the new applicator, it’s taking less time for the patient and it’s giving them even better results. And in the end, they’re happier and have more self confidence. “ says Dr. Marguerite Germain, dermatologist voted Best Dermatologist from Charleston City Paper readers for more than a decade. “Now that we have a dedicated CoolSculpting Specialist in our office, Lauren Holloway, she can assist the patient on the journey from treatment from transformation.” 


As the only certified CoolSculpting practice in the state of South Carolina, Germain Dermatology is committed to bringing their patients the most cutting edge procedures, products, and service.
