Low Country Dermatology Expands with Construction of New Complex

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.”

Howington said the new site was chosen as a central location and for its convenient access to Memorial Health University Medical Centerand St. Joseph’s/Candler’s Candler Hospital.

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.”

Albee Contractingis the general contractor for the project, and Lynch and Associatesis the architect.

The donations were presented to Bill Sorochak, executive director of RMHC.

It really makes a difference.”

Items donated to the holiday store allow parents who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House to pick out presents for their children and other family members.

Collected items included: stuffed animals, bath toys, teething toys, board books and interactive toys (blocks, rattles), nerf and Fisher Price toys, board games, toy trucks, dolls and dress-up clothes, adult coloring books and colored pencils, books, snacks, high efficiency free and clear laundry detergent and dryer sheets, hand sanitizer and hand soap, disposable bowls, plates utensils and gloves, trash bags, sponges and liquid dish soap, tissues, and disinfectant wipes.

“We are dedicated to providing a ‘home away from home’ for seriously ill or injured children and their families who are receiving treatment at area hospitals,” said Sorochak. “Every donation helps ensure we can stretch the dollars that support our 13-bedroom house in Savannah to better serve the families who depend on us. We are so grateful she has stepped up year after year to help them.”

Low Country Dermatology Hosted Open House to Showcase New Cutera Laser

Savannah’s Only Dermatologist Office Certified on New Technology

(SAVANNAH, GA) Corinne M. Howington, M.D., of Low Country Dermatology, invited patients and guests to learn more and see demonstrations of the new Cutera Lasers. Cutera and Dysport representatives were on hand, along with the Howington staff, to answer questions and demonstrate the products.

The Savannah practice is the first in the area to offer Cutera laser treatments for hair removal and vascular conditions.

“Demand for laser procedures continues to increase, and we will be ready to meet that need with the best system on the market,” said Dr. Howington. “We finished clinical training specifically geared for the Cutera lasers and I am pleased to announce that Courtney Zechman, our esthetician, is now certified to use Cutera’s excel V and excel HR™ systems.”

The Cutera systems are made in the U.S. and were the first FDA-approved laser brand. They are designed for high-quality, high-volume output and feature innovations in safety, effectiveness and patient comfort. The excel V is the only tunable laser system on the market that combines two laser wavelengths in one device with a larger premium sapphire cooling tip.

“In a national patient preference study measuring comfort and satisfaction for laser hair removal, 100 percent of the patients chose excel HR over a competitive laser hair removal device,” explained Zechman. “Offering two separate handpieces, CoolView and Genesis, the system has the flexibility to treat any case, from superficial and deep vascular conditions to benign pigmented lesions.”

Laser hair removal remains the single largest segment in energy-based medical aesthetic procedures. A report by U.S. Markets for Laser, Light and Energy Devices forecasts that laser hair removal procedure volumes have doubled since 2013, to 2.5 million procedures anticipated in 2017.
