The Quickest Way to Remove a Tattoo

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/hairstyles-beauty/beauty-blog/tattoo-removal-laser?click=main_sr

...Turns out there is some exciting news in the world of tattoo removal, which is that there's a new laser in town that's better, faster, and stronger that its predecessors. It's called the PicoSure by Cynosure.

This new "it" laser is much better at breaking up the ink, meaning there is better clearance with fewer treatments, adds Friedman. "It has a shorter pulse duration of light (a trillionth of a second) compared to original lasers that utilized pulses in one billionth of a second. The edge that the PicoSure has on previous lasers is because its pulses are 100 times shorter, it shatters the ink particles better, making it easier for the body to eliminate the artwork," he explains. 

So, how long will it take for you to see results? "A study that just came out reported greater than 75 percent improvement in just four treatments with black ink, and 75 percent improvement or more in one to three treatments with blue or green ink. However, early studies are showing that red inks aren't responding as favorably as the other inks. That said, we're seeing that it's removing all of the most popular colors in half of the number of treatments, so that's promising," says Friedman.

Meet Scout and Ollie, Spirited Buena Vista Boys

Dr. White's pets, Scott and Ollie, were featured in the Precious Pets column in the August 2013 edition of Buena Vista Life.

Things don't always go as planned when it comes to pets. In the case of Buena Vista's "Scout" and "Ollie," that's certainly the case. When Dr. Anne L. White's son, Ben, left for college, Scout went along as his roommate; and when they returned back to school after break, Scout decided to stay behind with Mom. She let him have his way. As Dr. White puts it, "They aren't spoiled. They just have me very well trained."

These spirited Beagle boys are not really pets at all, they're family. What's special about them? "Just look at them! They're precious!" beamed... Read more

Spooky Spots Spider Veins

Sep 27th, 2013 In: Anti-Aging
Dear Dr. Anne, Now that golfing and yard work in the hot sun have passed for another year, I'm starting to notice spots popping up on my face, and now even some veins. So if I want to look like a creepy old man for Halloween, I'm all set. Fact is, I don't! Is there a way you can get rid of them?

Trent, Lexington, NC

Dr. Trent, It sounds like what you're describing are Sun Spots and Spider Veins. In the interest of concisely answering your question, I'll spare you my preventative skincare lecture. I must emphasize that it is important for you to use sunscreen daily, whether out in the yard or just out-and-about in your car. Just like you brush your teeth every day, you should apply a little sunscreen every day. I promise if you do you will look much better than... Read more

Sagging Skin and Turkey Neck?

Sep 2nd, 2013 In: Anti-Aging
Tina, Lexington, NC: We just got back some of our vacation pictures and I hardly recognize myself! My eyelids and jawline are so droopy, I feel like a Bassett Hound! Thanksgiving and Christmas are not far away, and I need to get ready for family pictures, and fast. An out of town procedure is out of the question. What can you do to tighten up my jowls, jawline, and sagging neck, so I don't look like I had any work done?

How to Stay Smooth and Firm

Jul 1st, 2013 In: Fat Removal
Tiffany: I’m a runner and a former athlete, and have always taken care of my body and my health. These past few years since college I’ve been seeing unwelcome changes in the shape and appearance of my body. Exercising regularly and eating healthily aren’t working to keep me looking fit anymore, and I’m kind of limited in what I feel comfortable wearing now, too - sometimes I can see the lumps through my clothes. Any advice on how to help smooth and firm my waist and thigh areas, beyond “eat less and exercise more”? Thank you!

Dr. White: For a young person, you are wise beyond your years. Yes, diet and exercise are essential to a healthy lifestyle. And yes, they don’t always go all the way in addressing unwanted fat and... Read more
