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 kisses!

Attempts to enhance lip contours and fullness with lipstick and lip plumpers offer limited results. Truly effective lip enhancement requires a professional-grade product administered by a trained and experience physician. Certain fillers can add fullness and definition to your lips, with an aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking result. You are right, luscious pouty lips are  very much in fashion right now. Although there are amazing lip plumping glosses (the best one Clinician's Complex is available for sale at our office), they may not provide the luscious lips you were seeking.

The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, shows signs of aging as we get older.  As we age our upper lip elongates, our lips become thinner and flatter, the corners of our lips turn down instead of up creating a sad, dour look, we lose shape and definition, and develop vertical lines above and below the lip.  Restylane Silk, a premier prcduct, is designed specifically to restore a more youthful natural look in these areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

Restylane Silk is designed to provide a natural result while glvlng you that perfect pout. It is the only treatment FDA approved to specifically address lips and the fine lines around them.

You have come to the right place. Since 2003, I have personally perfomed over 25,000 Botox and filler injections.

So let's get started! Call today to schedule your own personal consultation.

Dear Dr. Anne,

I had a fabulous holiday with my family but as usual, I ate entirely too much and my waistband is paying the price! I need a way to get rid of these stubborn problem areas that diet and exercise won't get rid of. I have heard of Cool Sculpting, do you offer that procedure? Or do you have any other suggestions? Please help, my waistband is begging you!

Dear Grace,

You've come to the right place if you are looking to get rid of those stubborn problem areas! We made the choice not to offer Cool Sculpting and to wait for a more effective option. Now we have found it! We are confident that your waistband will thank you and your friends and family will be... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,

Christmas and New Years is fast approaching and we have many family gatherings during the holidays. I am NOT looking forward to seeing my sister-in-law because she is always so well-kept and neatly groomed. I want to look young and fresh like her but I don't have much time left. What would you suggest Dr. Anne?

Jacqueline, Clemmons, NC

Dear Jacqueline,

Every family has that dreaded 'sister-in-law.' Looking good always makes you feel more confident. We want you to look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside, if not better. Unfortunately, sunlight, natural aging and lifestyle factors greatly impact our skin and all that support it.

Thankfully, now science can reverse the... Read more

Kybella is Here at Carolina Laser Winston Salem NC

Oct 30th, 2015 In: Anti-Aging, Fat Removal
Kybella™ is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition commonly referred to as the double chin. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS): 68% of people said they're bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin.

Kybella™ uses a naturally-occuring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected, Kybella™ destroys fats cells and once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.

The injections are administered in a grid-like pattern (usually two vials per session) and the process requires at least two sessions spaced six weeks apart. Because it is an injectable, you can go about your day... Read more

Chin Up

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, October 2015

Dear Dr. Anne,

Some inherit their mother's baby blue eyes, others inherit the height gene, I inherited the double chin. Growing up, I was made fun of for having no neck or chin. I am 33 years old. I eat right and work out everyday yet I can't get rid of it. As a man, I think this condition is harder on men than it is for women. Is there anything I can do that will not require surgery or have a long  downtime?

Ryan G., High Point, NC

Dear Ryan,

Not all of us are blessed to inherit the baby blues and being tall but you are not alone in this. We have found that 40% of our patients that come in for this issue are men. It sounds like, based on your age and lifestyle, you would be a good candidate for Kybella™,... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,

It's been a long, hot, busy but glorious summer spent with my 3 active teenagers traveling to swim meets, chauffering them to and from activities, and overseeing some much needed renovations of our home.

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

Dear Dr. Anne,

I will be renewing my wedding vows in October to celebrate 25 years of marriage. I realize I will not be the young, 24 year old bride I once was walking down the aisle, but I still look pretty good at 49. What procedure would you recommend to help tighten and tone the neck and brow areas in a more natural looking way that does not require a lot of downtime?

Krista M., Greensboro

Dear Krista,

First of all, let me congratulate you on 25 years of marriage. What an exciting time in your life! I would love to help you achieve your cosmetic goals for your special day.

Sounds like, based on your age, you would be a good candidate for Ultherapy, a unique type of non-surgical treatment for the face and neck that... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,

My divorce was recently finalized and I'm ready to leave the past behind, move forward and take charge of my life. Unfortunately, my outward appearance doesn't match the peaceful human being I now feel on the inside. Lots of lines, wrinkles and stress have left their mark on my face. My friends say you're the expert when it comes to cosmetic, laser and dermatology treatments. What would you recommend that is natural looking and will give me immediate results? I'm ready to start living the life I deserve.
