Low Country Dermatology Expands with Construction of New Complex
(SAVANNAH, GA) Low Country Dermatology, owned by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Corinne Howington, will expand to a new aesthetic center and professional offices on Waters Avenue to accommodate the needs of its growing practice.
A ceremonial groundbreaking will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, March 12, at 6510 Waters Ave. The project is scheduled to be finished in October, and the first patients are expected in November.
“We have simply outgrown our present facilities on Eisenhower Drive,” Howington said. “With the new, purpose-built location, we’ll be able to treat our patients in a more spacious and convenient location.”
The new facility will include eight procedure and examination rooms, two aesthetic rooms for laser, as well as, chemical peels and facials, a cosmetic consult room and two clinical research rooms.
Howington said she attributes the expansion of the practice to an increased awareness of skin cancer and a growing and repeat demand for cosmetic services.
“With the public having a greater awareness of skin cancer’s risks, especially in this climate, patients are more likely to come in for evaluations,” she said. “Cosmetic patients are definitely returning more frequently, and our wait times for an appointment are increasing. We want to expand our esthetic side so that our patients can have easier access to our treatments and procedures.”
