Low Country Dermatology Becomes Savannah’s First Provider to Offer Cutera Laser Procedures

Low Country Dermatology Becomes Savannah’s First Provider to Offer Cutera Laser Procedures

(SAVANNAH, GA) Corinne M. Howington, M.D., of Low Country Dermatology, has announced her 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.

Patients and guests are invited to learn more, see demonstrations and enter to win free treatments at an open house from 1:00 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14 at 310 Eisenhower Dr. Suite 12A, in Savannah. Cutera and Dysport representatives will be on hand, along with the Howington staff, to answer questions and demonstrate the products. The practice will also offer package specials on all major treatments.

For more information about this new laser, and to RSVP for the open house, visit http://www.lcderm.com.

Silver Line Films Announces New Film “Take 2 For Faith”

Silver Line Films Announces New Film “Take 2 For Faith”

(SAVANNAH, GA) Silver Line Films, LLC has announced it is set to begin production of a new independent feature film, “Take 2 For Faith,” an inspirational drama starring Patrick Muldoon, Deana Carter, Nia Sioux, Dallas Lovato, Aaron O’Connell and Joel Rush; and directed by Nancy Criss. Janelle Arthur, Top 5 finalist on American Idol and 16 time Grand Ole Opry performer, will be portraying the lead role of Faith Winters in the film.

Written by Jason Usry and Kenneth Lemm and produced by Savannahian Chris Helton with Gabrielle Evans Fields, “Take 2 For Faith” is the inspiring story of a Nashville country music legend who seeks refuge in her rural Texas hometown following a public fall from grace.

But the homecoming is bittersweet. She must balance the career she left in Nashville and the disruption her presence brings to her small town with unexpected emotions as she rediscovers her high school sweetheart and turns to a local pastor for insight.

Casting for additional roles, coordinated by Gabrielle Evans Casting, will get underway on Tuesday, Aug. 15, in Austin, Texas. Production is scheduled to begin on Thursday, Aug. 25, in Smithville, Texas.

Patrick Muldoon, who originated the role of Austin Reed on the daytime drama, “Days of Our Lives,” will portray Seth Ingram in the film while multiple Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Deana Carter has been cast in the role of Liz Winters. Carter is perhaps best known for her hit songs “Did I Shave My Legs For This?” and “Strawberry Wine.”

Nia Sioux, who has just completed a six-week run in the Off-Broadway musical “Trip Of Love” and who has delighted television audiences for six seasons on the popular series, “Dance Moms,” will portray Zoe Whitfield. This is the first feature-length film for the 15-year-old dance sensation who has attracted 3.6 million followers to her @niasioux Instagram page and twitter feed. Nia’s role will be an opportunity as well to show off her singing ability.

Dallas Lovato, who appeared in “The Helpers” (2013) and provided the voice of Wendy in the 2011 animated film “Snowflake, the White Gorilla,” will play Jennie Sharp. Lovato is the older sister of star actress and singer Demi Lovato.

Aaron O’Connell, who starred in the 2015 movie, “12 Gifts of Christmas,” will portray Gavin Whitfield. O’Connell is best known for his role in Tyler Perry’s “Haves and Have Nots.” Joel Rush, who appeared in “If Loving You Is Wrong” (2014) and “Love or Whatever” (2012), will play Cameron.

The film’s director, Nancy Criss, has produced and directed numerous award winning films including, “A Horse for Summer,” “Deadly Sanctuary” and “The Sparrows Nesting.”

The film’s scheduled release date is on or about March 1, 2017. For more information, visit http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4883336/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm
