Announcing Advanced Dermatology PC Now Offering ThermiRF, a Faster, Safer and More Efficient Way for Tightening Skin and improving Neck and Jawlines
Roslyn Heights, NY, November, 2013 - Advanced Dermatology PC in Long Island, Manhattan, Westchester and NJ announces that they are now offering ThermiRF skin tightening treatments, a minimally invasive method of tightening sagging skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
"We are excited to be the first dermatologists in the NYC Metropolitan area to have our dermatologists offer ThermiRF to our patients," said Dr. Joshua Fox, Founder of Advanced Dermatology PC. "With ThermiRF skin tightening treatments, we can offer patients a minimally invasive method to tighten sagging skin, especially in the jawline, neck and chin areas," adds Dr. Fox. We are also using it off the face to tighten loose arms, wrinkly knees and abdomen. This helps avoid the more invasive plastic surgery techniques".
How it works
ThermiRF utilizes a small probe which is inserted into the skin through a needle to deliver the prescribed dose of safe radiofrequency RF energy and to monitor the temperature of the subdermal layer of skin. The subdermal layer of skin can safely endure higher temperatures than the outer layer of skin. A digital clock measures time and once the tip reaches a precise temperature the clinician can target and control the dose and the effect on the skin, fat and collagen.ThermiRF works by placing the monopolar radiofrequency RF energy directly at the subdermal layer, bypassing the outer layer of skin. A sensitive camera ensures that all areas are appropriately treated and avoids any complications. The result is that patients see more noticeable and positive results in a shorter period of time. “With ThermiRF’s subdermal targeting with radiofrequency RF energy patients see faster results compared with similar technologies such as Thermage and Ulthera,” says Dr. Valerie Goldburt, who also utilizes these techniques. She notes “it is less painful and the results are more dramatic”. Drs. Fox and Goldburt see ThermiRF as a procedure with more reproducible and dramatic results than Thermage and Ulthera yet not as invasive as plastic surgery.
What it helps fix
ThermiRF can help people look younger and fresher by treating a variety of areas of the skin including; frown lines, fine lines and wrinkles, double chin, sagging skin on the face, neck, arms and knees, excessive underarm sweating, post-liposuction lumps, and unwanted cellulite. Dr. Fox advises that individual patient results may vary and that patients should talk to their dermatologist to see if ThermiRF is the right approach for them. Dr. Goldburt feels, “its primary use will be for patients with ill-defined jaw lines, double chins and bat arms. The high technology device is currently FDA approved for nerve ablation but it is being used successfully off-label to tighten skin.

Examiner Super 10…Cameron T. Russell 11/19/13
West Tennessee’s Premier Prep Football Poll
Take a look at the area’s best teams to date, and catch up on the Friday night keys to victory in the Super 10 Quarterfinal capsules below.
1. Dyersburg (11-1).
2. TCA (10-1).
3. Union City (10-1).
4. Adamsville (9-2).
5. Westview (9-3).
6. J. North Side (9-3). Second round loss at #1 Dyersburg.
7. Humboldt (9-3).
8. Lexington (9-3). Second round loss at White House.
9. Huntingdon (8-3). Second round loss vs. Mitchell.
10. Peabody (9-3). Second round loss at #2 TCA.
Union City (10-1) hosts district rival Humboldt (9-3) in what could be a track meet of a rematch. The Vikings will have to limit mistakes and sustain enthusiasm for all four quarters in a return trip to avenge a six-point regular season loss. Union City’s hopes of reaching the semi-final round ride on having home-field advantage, but it’s hard to beat a formidable foe twice this close to Turkey Day.
Having won four road games to date, the Vikings are more than capable of springing the upset, yet they haven’t beaten U.C. in two years.
It’s not Kansas, but there’s still no place like home for the Tornados.
In arguably the second round game of the week, TCA (10-1) survived a 51-44 offensive showcase with Peabody en route to hosting quarterfinal heavyweight Mitchell (9-3). The Lions have scored on virtually every team on one of the area’s toughest schedules, but defenses win more ball games in November.
Stopping a Mitchell offensive attack averaging nearly 45 points/game in the Tigers nine wins is a kin to slowing down discount hunters on Black Friday.
Postseason-savvy Lions or talent-by-the-truckload Tigers?
Kings of the jungle roar loudest.
As expected Westview (9-3) collected another post-season win due in large part to one of the area’s stingiest defenses. Friday the Chargers hit the road to face an undefeated Lewis County (12-0) bunch short on quality competition wins.
Hohenwald’s heroes are used to putting up points in bunches and winning at home. Westview is accustomed to frustrating opponents not yet sold on what they witnessed on film.
Strong regular season schedules make for battle-tested playoff teams. Chargers turn-up!
For the first time this post season, Dyersburg (11-1) hits the road to take on one of Shelby County’s best. Trezevant (11-1) hosts the Trojans in what could be one of the area’s best match-ups.
The Bears have yet to lose to a Tennessee opponent, while limiting opponents to 17 points or less in every game. The Trojans will counter with a plethora of playmakers looking to keep a dream season in real time focus.
The Trojans side step all the pregame pomp and circumstance on their way to the Class 4A final four.

GOODWILL’S WHEELS-TO-WORK PROGRAM
Three Goodwill Employees Received Vehicles
(Nashville, Tenn) — Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee kicked off an exciting new program this week. The Wheels-to-Work Program was established to help Goodwill employees and clients eliminate the barrier of transportation. The program gives donated vehicles to qualified Goodwill employees or clients who cannot afford to purchase a car at this time and need one to get to work.
Goodwill President and CEO Matthew Bourlakas presented the first three recipients the keys to their “new” vehicles during a special ceremony in downtown Nashville. “The guiding philosophy of Goodwill has been grounded in the belief that productive, paid work is integral to the positive self-esteem of individuals and to the success of the communities in which those individuals live,” said Bourlakas. “One of the keys to gainful employment is being able to get to your work.”
More than 20 people applied to receive a vehicle through the Wheels-to-Work program. A selection committee made up of Goodwill employees from various departments helped to determine who was eligible to participate. In order to qualify for the program, participants had to meet certain qualifications such as being employed at least 30 hours, having a valid driver’s license and good driving record. After being notified of acceptance into the program, participants had to complete training classes on budgeting, defensive driving and car maintenance.
This is only Goodwill’s first vehicle presentation. There are several employees on a waiting list for the program, so if you have a vehicle you’d like to donate, know that it will be put to good use.
Meet the First Three Recipients
Evan McAuley - 2001 Cadillac Catera (burgundy)
Evan is a processor at our Goodwill store in Lebanon. She lives more than 50 miles from the Goodwill store where she works. There is no public transportation in her area, so Evan has to rely on other people to give her a ride to work, which is a daily struggle. Despite Evan’s barrier to transportation her manager said she works 40 hours per week and is always on time. For Evan, receiving a vehicle through this program will give her the break she has been looking for.
Jonnie Ogletree – 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier (gold)
Johnnie is a textile grader at our Goodwill warehouse in Nashville. She has to get up at 4:30am and catch two buses just to get to work on time. In addition, Johnnie had a total knee replacement last year, and walking is beginning to affect her hip joint. Lack of transportation has even prevented Johnnie from obtaining her own housing. According to her manager, these obstacles have not stopped Jonnie from having a good work ethic and good attendance. For Johnnie, receiving a vehicle through the program is a blessing.
Augustine Collier – 1996 Ford Exploer (green)
Augustine is an associate in the Goodwill Call Center. He has struggled with having to rely on the bus to get to work. Augustine has even had to wait over an hour just to get home due to limited bus schedule for his route. Although Augustine relies on the bus, his supervisor stated that he is always on time and ready to work. For Augustine, receiving a vehicle through this program means renewed independence.

TACIR Releases Report on Fire Service Funding
Nashville, TN, July 30 – Despite some improvement, Tennessee remains among the ten jurisdictions with the highest fire death rates nationwide, underscoring the importance of better understanding fire service in the state. Which is why the General Assembly asked the Tennessee Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (TACIR) to study how fire service is funded, in rural and suburban areas, whether provided by paid or volunteer fire departments, and to determine the effect on local governments of not having a fully funded fire department and what it would mean for firefighting to be made an essential service.
Different types of fire departments have access to different types of funding based mainly on whether they are city, county, or private corporations. Most fire service is funded through taxes or through fees. While tax revenue is typically general fund revenue, counties may also establish fire tax districts in which some portion of the property tax is earmarked for fire service. The Commission found no obvious reason not to extend the option of allowing fire tax districts to cities.
While there is no definition for “fully funded” or “essential service” in state law, conversations with the bill’s sponsor and fire officials support interpretation of a fully funded, essential service as a publicly funded, mandatory service. There are very few mandated services in Tennessee or any other state. In fact, the only mandatory service in Tennessee with a definition of fully funded is public education. And while many sources assert that there is a relationship between funding levels and fire losses, the data available for Tennessee’s fire departments does not indicate a strong relationship. The data, which is self-reported, is inconsistent and has many gaps for individual fire departments. The quality of data for fire departments and for fire incidents is a concern in itself, one that has already been identified by the State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO).
The report discusses a 2011 University of Tennessee (UT) study of fire deaths by Census tract that found that 90% of the Census tracts in Tennessee at highest risk for fire deaths are rural tracts characterized by high poverty; low education levels, incomes, and housing values; and a large number of mobile homes. The SFMO has already begun to target those high-risk areas in an attempt to reduce fire deaths, focusing largely on methods other than fire suppression—like distributing smoke detectors and supporting public fire-safety education—and on better data collection to help identify future strategies.
The Tennessee Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (TACIR) serves as a forum for the discussion and resolution of intergovernmental problems; provide high quality research support to state and local government officials in order to improve the overall quality of government in Tennessee; and to improve the effectiveness of the intergovernmental system in order to better serve the citizens of Tennessee..
