Sparkle for the Holidays

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, November 2016

Dear Dr. Anne,

This happens to me every year ... suddenly the holidays are upon us and l'm caught by surprise, feeling less than pleased with the way I look in holiday photos.  I've decided this is the year for change. What can you do to help me really sparkle this year?

Sherry, Winston-Salem

 

Dear Sherry,

Here at Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, we offer a number of options to help you "sparkle". For giving your skin a glow and addressing skin texture concerns, we have a variety of lasers that we combine with microdermabrasion that involve little to no downtime. A combination of Microdermabrasion and Laser Genesis, a Microderm Laser Facial is a wonderful procedure we offer to improve skin tone and eliminate surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage, and it is ideal for any part of your face, neck or decollete.

If wrinkles are getting you down, fillers and/or injectables can be a quick and easy fix. We offer a number of both, each targeting specific areas of the face, and depth of the fold. Treatment takes less than an hour and they go to work very quickly: fillers like Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse take effect immediately, and iniectables like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin start working in 2 days and show full results in just 2 weeks!

For even more options on helping you look your best for the holidays, join us for our Holiday Sparkle Party, November 10th. The festivities begin at 5 p.m. with food, beer and wine, prizes, demonstrations, and special pricing on everything. So make your appointment to come see us ... a sparkling new you this holiday is just a call away!

 

Reverse Visible Signs of Aging This Fall

Sep 30th, 2016 In: Anti-Aging


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,

You've come to the right place. I was one of the first physicians in the Winston-Salem area to offer Botox when it was approved by the FDA in 2002 and I was trained by the best - Dr. Jean Carruthers - the doctor who pioneered the use of... Read more

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, September 2016

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! I would like to know more about Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC and Voluma fillers and injectables my friends all rave about.

Dear Sandra,

Ultherapy Non-invasive Lift

Aug 2nd, 2016 In: Anti-Aging, Fat Removal, General


 

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

Clear Up Your Legs for Summer!

Clear Up Your Legs for Summer!

Dear Dr. Anne,

I've never had legs like Carrie Underwood's, but they've looked nice enough for me to confidently wear shorts and skirts in spring and summer. Not this year! I can see freckles, old scars from shaving, and bursts of veins all over my legs. What can you recommend for getting my legs ready for summer?

Delia S., Winston-Salem

Dear Delia,

This same realization happens to most people as we shed our layers of winter clothing in favor of more lightweight and skin baring styles. Here at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center we can treat the veins, brown spots, fat pockets, and errant hairs that seem to have appeared overnight.

Now is the perfect time to start working on clearing up your legs!

Your Eyes and Anti-Aging

Feb 29th, 2016 In: Anti-Aging, Eyes


 

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, March 2016

Dear Dr. Anne,

I used to get a lot of compliments on my eyes. I haven't lately, though, I feel as though my eyes are aging me and I need help turning back the hands of time! Can you make any suggestions?

- Ashley S., Mocksville

Dear Ashley,

Eyes are one of the first features we notice about a person but they are also the place where signs of aging are first noticed. As we age, the brow descends and skin thins, creating upper eyelid hooding, giving a tired look to the face. Crow's feet or wrinkles around the eyes appear, and dark urcles on the lower lid develop under the eye.

We have many options available here at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center to help reverse these signs. Lasers, fillers and topical... Read more

Luscious Lips for My Valentine

Jan 31st, 2016 In: Anti-Aging


As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, February 2016

Dear Dr. Anne,

I am a forty something woman who is (relatively) happy with my looks but I have noticed that full, luscious lips are all the rage this year. I am very envious of the celebrities like Kylie Jenner with beautiful pouty lips. I have tried most of the lip plumpers at the mall and I still can't get the desired look. What else can I do to achieve the perfect pout? I heard that you were the "queen of fillers" so I knew you were the right person to ask.

- Colleen from Kernersville NC

Dear Colleen,

Men are hot-wired to a woman's lips.  One of the first features others notice, both men and women, is our lips. So wantlng luscious lips for your Valentine is only natural. You will likely get more... Read more
