“Dear Mary, Dr. O’Dell and Staff, When I walked into your office a little over a year ago for an information session, I never dreamed what a role you would all play in my life. You see, I was the walking wounded. The person who looks fine on the outside but isn’t making it on the inside. I was lost and stumbling in a spiritual darkness.

You cannot imagine what your outreach to me meant for my life. You reached me when I was alone and really, honestly, believed no one cared. You all treated me with a healing ointment of respect, care and concern that I had not had in a very long time. God used each and every one of you to touch my heart and soul. You were His hands and feet.

So, I hope you know that you are often treating the walking wounded. Never let anyone tell you that your work is superficial because you often restore the humanness to someone who has lost who they are. Every time you help someone find a little joy in themselves you are doing a service worth more than any dollar amount.

Thank you to sweet Mary, Dr. O’Dell and the entire Genesis Family for seeing something in me that I could not see in myself. You all have blessed me beyond belief and reminded me that God is still, indeed, in the business of miracles.

Thank you for all you have done for me, inside and out.”
– M.B.D.

“I believe God, family, and close friends bring out my inner beauty. As for my outer beauty, I contribute great results due to the helping hands of Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center. I have received numerous procedures by Mary Daniels in which I have always been pleased with the results. I find the staff professional, informative, and pleasant to consult with on any questions or concerns before treatments. I would highly recommend these skilled professionals for any changes you are considering to create a better you!!!”

“I have enjoyed several treatments with Dr. O’Dell and his staff at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center. I have received Botox injections that took years off my appearance. Dr. O’Dell has also performed Smart Lipo on my chin, giving me a definite jaw line, while tightening the loose skin on my neck. I had no bruising or swelling with my Lipo procedure and I returned to work the very next day. Dr. O’Dell and his staff are very professional and they really cared about my well being. They are the very best and I would recommend Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center to anyone seeking a little lift in their appearance.”

“I have been going to Genesis for the past couple of months. I have always had microdermabrasions until I tried the Hydra Facial Treatments that Catherine gives. It is wonderful! After the hour treatment, I do not want to get off of her table. She makes me feel so relaxed and the treatments give my skin a healthy, youthful glow. The treatment has rebuilt my collagen and my lines around my mouth and the crows feet around my eyes have virtually disappeared. I’ve enjoyed my treatments and the atmosphere was awesome! Thanks Catherine for all the tender loving care!”
– A. Byrd, Lugoff, SC

“Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is the best place for skin care, and the people who work there are so friendly and so helpful, they feel like family to me. I get such a treat every time I go. To me, Mary is the “Queen” of skin care. I am 45 years old, and I spent a lot of time in the sun as a child and into my early 30’s. By the time I was 32, the damage that I did was really starting to show. I spent a lot of money on skincare products, and with dermatologists and I got little to no results. I was very frustrated. In my late 20’s I had a lot of broken capillaries on my cheeks which made me so self conscious that I had to wear makeup all the time. I read about laser treatments, but I thought they are probably so expensive, until I met Mary and found out that they were affordable. After one treatment my broken capillaries were gone. My face was so much smoother and so soft. I could not believe it. She also put me on a skin care regimen and I could not believe the results that I got and the products were more affordable than the lines at the department stores. I wish I had met her 20 years ago! Genesis is always having specials on their treatments which makes it so affordable and Mary makes sure that I know about them even though she knows I am coming back for more. I also met another great skin care person at Genesis, Catherine. She is not only a great technician, she is also a great friend. She takes her time and does an amazing job. I don’t worry about my skin issues anymore. I let Mary and Catherine do that and I know that they are the experts and I just show up to my appointments. I am not saying that I look 35, but my skin looks better now since I am getting treatments than it did when I was 35 and that makes me happy. I have much more self esteem. I also got Botox around my eyes and Dr. O’Dell was so gentle. In the past I had it done by another Doctor and I had a lot of bruising, but with him I had no bruising at all. I can’t say enough good things about Genesis. I am so happy about everything there. The results are so amazing that I will be going there as long as I can. I will never go anywhere else, I am so pleased.”

“Many years ago I had an unfortunate experience that left me with permanent scars on my face. I would go to great lengths each day trying to cover and hide the scars. No matter how hard I tried, the scars would always shine through any make-up I applied. The lack of pigment was stronger than any technique I tried. The discoloration crudely outlined the shape of each scar and made them even more noticeable.

After many years with not much success, I had begun to reconcile myself to the fact that there was no hope for any improvement. And then I was introduced to Mary Daniels, whose expertise and skill using permanent make-up, literally transformed my scars, and ultimately my life. She gave me hope when there was none. She was able to provide flesh tone colors to the slick, white surfaces of my scars that allowed me to apply make-up that would now be able to finally cover my scars.

What a special blessing Mary Daniels and her permanent make-up techniques have been to my life. As often happens with God’s amazing grace, miracles graciously replace the discouragement and despair of life’s difficulties and transform us into examples of encouragement for others. God will provide and will make a way out of a seemingly impossible situation. That is my hope and prayer for you.”

“Every woman deserves to be pampered from time to time. When I walk into Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center, I know I can depend on the staff to make me feel welcome and to take care of my needs. No matter what treatment I receive, there is always some pampering along with it. I was introduced to the Cosmedix skin care line by Mary Daniels and it has really cleared up my skin. I’ve tried numerous products with little or no results but this medical skin care line has done wonders for me. The Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup gives amazing coverage and my skin has a radiance I did not have before. If you have acne prone skin, I recommend you calling Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center and receive a complimentary consultation that could change your life. Thanks to all you guys and dolls at Genesis!”

“Hi Mary. I just could not be happier with the laser hair removal treatments. I had such coarse, dark hair so it was necessary to shave every day. I have not had to shave since my last treatment. It is truly life changing! I was also amazed at how comfortable the procedure was. I have enjoyed your services for the past few years as I prepared for the Mrs. SC America Pageant and the Mrs. America Pageant. You have drastically improved the lines around my eyes and the texture of my skin; it’s like you have turned back the clock. I love the Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup, too. The coverage is great and it feels very light and natural to wear. You have made me feel pampered and special during each of my visits. I will continue to trust you for beneficial results.”

“I am so happy I went to Genesis and had liposuction performed on my stomach and back area. I felt as though I had an ‘inner tube’ or spare tire around my entire waist. Now it is gone! I feel as though I was given a second chance. My body looks like it it did when I was in my twenties. I will be 48 soon and my 35 year old fiance thinks I look great! He kept telling me I didn’t need it but he knows how happy I am that I had that procedure done. I have already worn my bikini this summer and I no longer struggle finding clothes that flatter me. I could continue spending money on things that don’t work, but this worked for me. I share this information with people because they have seen a difference. It has motivated me to continue exercising and I feel so much better. I am still shocked when I see my before and after pictures! Thank you Genesis!”

“Thank you Genesis for all the services you offer and the wonderful staff that takes such good care of me. I have received most of my services from Mary Daniels. Mary is so knowledgeable in her field and she is such a good Christian Lady. Between the Fraxel treatments, Permanent Makeup and Radiesse injections, I feel so much better about my appearance and my skin feels and looks so much younger. Dr. O’Dell has treated my crows feet with Botox, diminishing the wrinkles. Thank you Mary, Dr. O’Dell and staff for treating me like family.”

“I was in the process of starting my own laser hair removal business in North Carolina. I met Mary Daniels during a seminar hosted by a laser manufacturer. I was very impressed with Mary’s depth of knowledge about the business and technologies related to laser hair removal. Since the seminar, Mary has been my number one source of information. She is not only knowledgeable but gracious with her time and advice. Mary is the only person I have met that combines the vast knowledge of the laser business, skin science, and state of the art technology development in her training seminar classes. She shares this knowledge with so much grace and generosity.”

I have been working with paramedical aestheticians for many years in Australia, the USA and Japan. Ms. Mary Daniels stands out among her peers with her longstanding professional, thorough and knowledgeable approach to paramedical skin rejuvenation. In addition to her expertise, her manner with her patients is dedicated, caring and considerate. I know of no others that I would trust more thoroughly than Mary.”

“Dear Mary, I am so blessed by your love and friendship and will always believe that God chose you to be my very own Angel of Mercy. What a gift! I am so proud of you and your accomplishments and what you do for others each day. God has not only given you a willing heart but a special talent to change the lives of those you encourage daily with your sweet, gentle spirit.

“I am so grateful to Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center. My acne scarring is virtually invisible since I started the Fraxel treatments. The Fraxel is actually rebuilding my collagen and elasticity. I’ve suffered with acne prone skin for years and after consulting with Mary Daniels, she started me on a medical skin care line that cleared my skin up in a short period of time. Catherine has been doing a diamond tip Hydradermabrasion treatment on my face for several weeks and I can see a huge improvement in my skin’s texture and tone. Everyone at Genesis treats me like family and I look forward to each and every visit. I know I’m in good hands with the caring and knowledgeable staff of Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center.”
– T. Ward, Florence, SC

“I have been a patient of Mary Daniels for seven years. My skin today looks and feels younger than ever before. With her extended training and knowledge of skin care, Mary has guided me with the latest in products and procedures that are right for my skin.

I have first-hand experience in knowing and trusting that Mary has the highest of ethics and will always be honest and put my safety first. Looking good at 61!”
– C. James, Myrtle Beach, SC

“I recently had a laser procedure from Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center. I am extremely pleased with my results! My husband has noticed a significant difference in the texture and firmness of my skin. My daughter is my number one critic when it comes to my appearance and she thinks my skin looks much smoother and less stressed. She says my skin has a healthy glow. I’m very thankful to the staff at Genesis. They are very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend them for any facial needs that you may be considering.”
– J.T., McBee, SC

“I was very concerned about who to trust with my face. After several referrals, I chose Mary Daniels, and I am so thankful that I did. She has been a professional throughout my entire process. Mary has helped me make some noticeable improvements. I regularly have people tell me I look 10 years younger. I always respond with…’Go see Mary at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center…they get the credit.'”
– D. Kirkland

“The staff at Genesis are the “best of the best.” Florence has a number of places you can go for good products and good services, but if you don’t want to feel like just another client…choose Genesis…I am so glad I did. Mary is an expert in her field of laser, etc., and a wealth of knowledge concerning skin care. She will take all the time you need to help you with what is best for you and your skin. Unlike clothing, you wear your face everyday and I trust her to help me look my healthiest and best. Mary and her wonderful staff of ladies make you feel comfortable, at home and loved. I not only look forward to going for services, I look forward to seeing the staff. I feel more confident in my appearance because people have commented on how good my skin looks. I share with them what I have done and encourage them to see Mary at Genesis to direct them on the path to a more youthful and lovely you.”
