“We can't turn back the clock, but we can make it look like we did.”

Dear Dr. Anne,
I look in the mirror and think what happened to my face??? My face is flat! I am interested in restoring my skin's lost volume, smoothing my wrinkles and adding fullness to my thin lips. I am looking for results that are even, smooth and immediate. Any suggestions?
Mary B., Welcome, NC
I offer a variety of options to smooth away your wrinkles and to enhance your lips. These treatments will restore your skin and lip's volume in a way so subtle and natural-looking that everyone will notice, but no one will know. And, yes, the results are smooth and immediate.
Belotero Balance® is used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and for lip augmentation. Belotero Balance® filler is designed to deliver natural-looking results with little recovery time. The cost of Belotero Balance® is a little less than the other fillers.
Juvederm® simply restores your skin to its more youthful volume, smoothing wrinkles away. With minimal recovery or downtime, Juvederm® is a safe, quick, and convenient solution to facial folds and wrinkles. Juvederm® is my favorite for the parentheses around the mouth because it is so smooth.
Restylane® adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane® is my favorite for the lips because it does such a good job lifting the lip corners to create the "happy lip".
Belotero Balance®, Juvederm® and Restylane® all last 6-12 months before being completely reabsorbed.
So let's get started on the creating the new you! Call us today for your own private consultation.
Dear Dr. Anne,
I decided I was going to set a healthy example for my children so started exercising, eating healthier, and I have lost over 60 lbs. I feel more comfortable in every aspect of my life except for my lovehandles. Any suggestions for firming and tightening loose skin?
Steve L., Kernersville, NC
A 60lb. weight loss is amazing! 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.
Firming is probably the biggest sought-after benefit in cosmetic surgery these days. One of the most effective treatments available for firming today is SmartLipo... Read more
Dear Dr. Anne,
This year I finally decided to focus on me. I started exercising, eating healthier, and I have lost over 40 lbs. But I still cannot get rid of these lovehandles and tummy! I want to show off this body I have worked so hard to achieve. Any suggestions for firming and tightening loose skin?
Carrie M, Lewisville, NC
Good for you! Wow, 40 lbs! Losing weight takes commitment and consistency 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 and thighs.

Winston-Salem Monthly - October 2014
Dear Dr. Anne,
In college I decided to get a tattoo on a whim. Like many other young people, we make decisions without thinking and regret our choices later. Fast forward 10 years and now I am a mom and have a career that I'm proud of. What I'm not proud of is this doggone tattoo. Can you help me undo this mistake from college?
Jen H., Winston-Salem
If I had a dollar for every time I heard a story like yours I would be a rich woman! Getting a tattoo often represents a milestone or a memory in a person's life, but according to consumer research studies, nearly 20% of the 45 million Americans with tattoos will eventually regret their decision. And surprisingly enough, 69% of patients who want their tattoos... Read more
Winston-Salem Monthly - September 2014
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 similar to a facelift. I’ve tried creams, had facials, and stayed out of the sun but my skin is still sagging. What would give me the tightening I want without going through actual surgery?
Lori M., Winston-Salem
You are not alone! I hear from so many women who, like you, look in the mirror every day wishing they could turn back the hands of time. Unfortunately wishing alone will not work! For many, a facelift is not an option due to the cost and recovery it requires.
There is a wonderful alternative that is non-invasive, safe, and... Read more

Winston-Salem Monthly - August 2014
Dear Dr. Anne,
We have had a great summer with the kids; beach trips, sailing, motor boating, waterskiing, way too much sun. I have noticed despite using sunscreen faithfully and wearing sunglasses, it has taken its toll on my eyes. My eyebrows are falling, bleached out and falling out at the edges. My forehead is wrinkled and the crow's feet are just ugly. And now I am getting bags under my eyes. Parents night is coming up soon. What can I do to look better so I won't embarass myself and my family at the opening of school?
