Are you one of the more than 20 million Americans living with scars from acne?
Great breaking news! Cynosure has gained FDA Approval for the PicoSure System for Acne Treatment. And we are one of only a few laser centers in North Carolina to offer this groundbreaking technology!
Now the same laser that has shown to be super-effective for Laser Tattoo Removal has also been proven to be effective at removing acne scars. Get rid of Acne Scarring in just a few short weeks!
PicoSure laser focuses on your problem areas whether it’s brown spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmented lesions or acne scars. PicoSure offers a gentler treatment. In the past, lasers have relied on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which may be painful and lead to significant skin redness and downtime.
Treatment sessions take about 15 to 20 minutes, and most patients see results after about 3 sessions. The skin can feel red and tender for a day after treatment, but our patients have experienced great results with less preparatory time and down time compared to other options.
The PicoSure system uses short bursts of laser energy to photomechanically breakdown scars into smaller particles that are eliminated by the body, without adverse impact to the skin. Unlike competitive technologies that use nanosecond lasers, the picosecond laser emitted by PicoSure does not rely on delivering thermal energy to the tissue to heal scars.
In clinical studies, it was reported that 77% of patients who were treated with PicoSure had more than 50% improvement in scar treatment as rated by physicians. PicoSure also had a patient satisfaction rating of 76% at the one month follow up and an 86% satisfaction rating at the three month follow up.

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?

Winston-Salem Monthly - June 2014
Dear Dr. Anne,
I just realized my family reunion this summer is only a few weeks away. That means close-by sister-in-laws and lots of cameras ... yikes! My face looks sad and dull, even when I'm smiling. Can you help? And quickly?!
Tracy D., Lexington
Concern over looking sad when not is something we hear a lot from our patients. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, and gravity takes its toll. Our faces elongate and rotate inward. We lose the classic inverted triangle of youth, and our faces become wrinkled and rectangular, and heavier in the jowls. But don't despair, at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center, we offer a number of procedures and treatments that will turn your frown upside down and leave your... Read more
