All new FDA-approved Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne dermal fillers now at Carolina Laser

Dr. Anne L. White of Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center (www.CarolinaLaser.com) introduces the all new FDA-approved Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne dermal fillers to her practice.

Using a new technology, the FDA-approved fillers, Refyne and Defyne produce a more natural outcome by flexing and moving along with the natural fluctuations of the muscles. As part of the Restylane® family of products from Galderma, the same successful hyaluronic acid base formula is used as Restylane® Silk but used primarily for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds. While Refyne treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Defyne is best at correcting the deeper, moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds or "parentheses" around the mouth. Both products use a relatively low molecular weight and are very gentle so patients don't look and feel as if product has been injected under the skin surface.

For Refyne and Defyne, the lifespan of the product is about a year. Lidocaine is mixed into the product so no numbing is required beforehand. Patients can expect a little numbness post procedure for about 1-2 hours due to the anesthetic component. The end result will be one without stubborn wrinkles and folds that age a person, and everyone will wonder what was done to produce a refreshing look.

As with any cosmetic treatment or procedure, a consultation with an expert, such as Dr. White, is recommended to determine if this product is the right fit. Cosmetic enhancements require a professional grade product, like Refyne and Defyne, and should always be administered by a trained professional. Since 2003, Dr. White has performed over 25,000 filler injections.

"At Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center we are passionately committed to providing the safest and latest non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime cosmetic, laser and dermatology treatments to help patients look as young outside as they feel inside," Dr. White says.

Enchanting Eyes in no time!

Feb 28th, 2017 In: Anti-Aging, Eyes


As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, March 2017

Dear Dr. Anne,

When I was younger, I often received a lot of compliments on my eyes. As I've gotten older, my eyes look tired, and those compliments are few and far between. I want to turn back the hands of time and have captivating eyes again ... can you help?

Rebecca B.
Winston-Salem, NC

Dear Rebecca,

The eyes are one of the first features we notice about a person. Unfortunately, it is also the place where signs of aging first appear. As we age, the effects of gravity take hold, the brows begin to descend and the skin thins, creating upper eyelid hooding giving a tired look to the face. Crow's feet or wrinkles around the eyes appear, and dark circles develop on the lower lid under the eye.

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, February 2017

Dear Dr. Anne,

As a forty-something mom of three kids, I'm fairly happy with my looks. But I'll admit ... I'm still a bit envious of other women my age who seem to haw the perfect pout. I've tried lip plumpers but can't seem to get the look I'm wanting. My friends say, "go see Dr. White!" What can you do to help me?

Tina F., Lewisville, NC

Dear Tina,

One of the first facial features others notice, both men and women, is the lips. To quote Dr. Arnie Klein, the lip guru, "Men are hot-wired to a women's lips." And who wouldn't want the luscious, pouty lips that are very much in demand right now? Unfortunately,
as we age, our upper lip elongates, our lips become... Read more

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, January 2017

Dear Dr. Anne,

I decided to begin the new year with healthier lifestyle habits in place and have already started exercising and eating healthier. I have lost over 40 lbs. I feel more comfortable with my slimmer body except for my love handles. Any suggestions for firming and tightening these stubborn areas?

Edward J., Winston-Salem, NC

Dear Edward,

You have much to celebrate with a 40 lb. weight loss ... congratulations! Losing weight takes diligence and dedication and I commend you for the positive changes you have made. But sometimes, no matter how strictly you diet or exercise, you just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, especially around the abdomen.

Reverse Visible Signs of Aging This Fall

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, October 2016

Dear Dr. Anne,

It appears I'm giving the wrong impression with my aging expression. Where did those lines between my brows come from? They greet me every morning and I don't like it. My friends all rave about Botox® and how great it is for women like myself. I have never had a cosmetic injection or procedure before. I would love for you to tell me a little bit more about Botox®  ... I think it's time I gave it a try.

Lynn M., Kernersville

 

Dear Lynn,

Dear Dr. Anne,

It's been an extremely busy summer. I've enjoyed so many fun times on the road with my two teenage daughters traveling to softball games, chauffering them to and from activities, as well as keeping up with the construction of our new home. Now that the kids are back in school and we are settled in our new home, it's time for me!

Ultherapy Non-invasive Lift

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, August 2016

Dear Dr. Anne,

Every morning I wake up, look in the mirror, and pull back the skin on my face wishing it was tighter. I really don't want to have surgery but would love results similiar to a facelift. I've tried creams, had facials and stayed out of the sun but the my skin is still sagging! What would give me the tightening I want without going through an actual surgery?

- Joanne, Greensboro

Dear Joanne,


You are not alone! I hear from so many women who, like you, look at the mirror everyday wishing they could turn back the hands of time. Unfortunately, wishing is not enough! For many, a facelift is not an option due to the cost and the recovery time.
There is a wonderful alternative that is non-invasive,... Read more
