We continue to invest in the most advanced technology so that we can provide our patients with THE BEST in cosmetic laser and ultrasound skin treatments.
Laser Fat Removal Laser Body Sculpting
We are the first in the Triad area to offer the New Standard in Non-Invasive Body Contouring and laser fat removal.
The Cynosure® Sculpsure Laser ... the new shape of energy-based body contouring. SculpSure offers convenient, comfortable contouring for any body and skin type. It's a non-invasive laser device that can treat multiple areas of stubborn fat in just one 25-minute treatment.
SculpSure is a breakthrough in light-based body contouring designed to reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the abdomen and love handles, helping you achieve a slimmer appearance without surgery or downtime. Even with diet and exercise, most people have stubborn pockets of fat that seem impossible to lose.
SculpSure's body contouring technology is able to target and destroy these fat cells in just 25 minutes without affecting the skin's surface.
Over time, these damaged fat cells are naturally absorbed and removed from the body, with results seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks. There is no recovery time following treatment, so you can resume your daily activities immediately.
Laser Hair Removal
We are the only practice in the Triad area to offer this unprecedented innovation in laser technology—the New Vectus® Laser for hair removal.

Cellulaze Cellulite Laser
Why treat cellulite from above the skin when the real problem lies beneath it?
Representing a true breakthrough in cellulite treatment, Cellulaze's Nd:YAG 1440 nm pulsed laser wavelength is applied subdermally via Cynosure's proprietary fiber optic SideLaze3D, to target cellulite precisely at the source: in the underlying structural tissue.
Clinical studies show in just one treatment, Cellulaze can:
- Visually improve the appearance of cellulite
- Increase skin thickness and elasticity
- Produce significantly measurable clinical results lasting one year or longer
Cellulaze is the first and only minimally invasive cellulite treatment backed by extensive clinical data. Proven to improve cellulite's appearance for one year or more with high patient satisfaction. Using Cynosure's revolutionary SideLaze technology and ThermaGuide temperature sensing system. Cellulaze
- Pinpoints and disrupts dimpled pockets of herniated fat
- Thermally subcises fibrous bands of underlying tissue that trap the fat
- Builds collagen and elastin at the hypodermal junction
Precision TX Laser
Precision laser treatment for smaller area contouring
PrecisionTx is an Nd:YAG 1440nm wavelength laser. The photomechanical effect of 1440nm wavelength absorption by water causes micro bubbles at the fiber tip (cavitation effect), which produces bi-directional energy distribution and allows for more focused tissue targeting.
PrecisionTx treatments are minimally invasive and can be done in-office. These one-time, one-hour procedures make PrecisionTx ideal for patients who are seeking the best possible results with the least amount of downtime.
With PrecisionTx, in one treatment we can give patients a minimally invasive laser facelift ... no stitches, no scalpels, no scars. In less than an hour, you can take years off your appearance and improvement will continue over time.
PrecisionTx is also the first one-time treatment for excessive sweating that has lasting results. It utilizes a unique and focused delivery of laser energy to target and ablate the function of sweat glands within the axillae (underarms) for patients who are bothered by underarm sweating.
Picosure by Cynosure
Shattering the past. Revealing the Future. A breakthrough in tattoo and skin spot removal treatments!
Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center is one of the first facilities in North Carolina to offer this unprecedented innovation in laser technology. Picosure is the world's first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic laser. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. Picosecond pulse width is 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology, enabling unmatched photomechanical impact for better clearance with fewer treatments and less fluence. The future is here.
PicoSure is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser for the safe and effective removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions. Clinical data shows better results in fewer treatments. PicoSure's ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
Premium-engineered "gold standard" lasers gently and safely treat a wide range of skin concerns
We were one of the first facilities in North Carolina to offer this advance in laser technology. "We continue to upgrade our technology to help offer our patients the highest power laser tattoo removal treatment in less time and with better results," says Dr. Anne White, a Fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. "We offer the fastest treatment time and the least number of treatments to achieve excellent results." While eclipsed now by the more effective Picosure laser for tattoo removal, we continue to use the RevLite laser for red pigments in laser tattoo removal treatment.
The Revlite laser is also an excellent way to create a smoother, healthier-looking complexion while stimulating ongoing collagen growth and smoothing lines and wrinkles. Because lasers penetrate deeper than any cream or lotion, they can provide a dramatic boost to your beauty routine. Injectable fillers can be used in combination with laser treatment for optimum overall results. RevLite safely targets pigmentation and sunspots, gently breaking the pigment into tiny particles. You'll notice the spot turning gray or white for a few minutes, a natural response of the skin as it absorbs the energy. The spot will then turn darker and sloughs off completely within one to two weeks. At this point, lighter skin starts to blend in as it heals, promoting an even toned appearance.
Most lasers use heat, or photo-thermal energy, as the primary method of action. RevLite and MedLite lasers pioneered the use of PhotoAcoustic technology — high-speed energy waves that penetrate the skin in nanoseconds, minimizing the amount of heat in each procedure. These PhotoAcoustic waves have a variety of uses — they gently vibrate collagen fibers to smooth wrinkles and acne scars — while stimulating new collagen growth. They can also be used to fragment tattoo ink, remove brown "sun spots", eliminate unwanted hair ... and provide an aesthetic medical solution for overall skin rejuvenation.

Sciton Contour Laser
This is most advanced laser skin resurfacing system available today. This amazing laser resurfacing technology allows us to dramatically rejuvenate your skin with fewer risks and less down time than the older CO2 laser resurfacing technology.
The Contour TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) is a full-field skin resurfacing solution, capable of a wide variety of treatment options. From a shallow Microlaserpeel (up to 50 microns of ablation) to deep resurfacing (up to 200 microns of ablation per pass, with or without variable depth coagulation), the Contour TRL gives us exquisite control over surgical outcomes.
What makes the Sciton resurfacing laser truly unique among other resurfacing lasers is TRL technology, which provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation with micron precision. TRL technology makes it easy to ablate as shallow or deep as you like, with or without coagulation. Competitive lasers, like CO2, have a fixed ratio of coagulation to ablation, and there is no way to separate the two. With CO2, coagulation always accompanies ablation, which often leads to suboptimal treatments and undesired side effects like hypopigmentation, sustained erythema, and prolonged recovery times.
Sciton's TRL technology is different. Because the Contour TRL decouples ablation and coagulation and allows for precise application of each, practitioners can dial in the exact tissue effect needed for each patient's pathology, desired outcome, and tolerance for downtime.
The Contour TRL's unique ability to be tuned for different tissue effects gives it the widest array of possible treatments. TRL technology provides the ability to plane down wrinkles externally while internally stimulating the dermal collagen matrix to firm the skin and add dermal resilience. Contour TRL can treat all skin types, both on face and body. Primary treatments include:
- Mild to deep wrinkles
- Persistent peri-oral and peri-orbital deep rhytides
- Acne scars, post-traumatic and surgical scars
- Actinic keratoses
- Pigmented lesions
- Lax skin in all areas (including upper and lower blephs)
- Poor skin tone/texture
Non-Invasive Tissue Lift From The Foundation Up
Ultherapy® is the ONLY technology with FDA approval for non-invasive tissue lift for the face, neck and submental! It uses micro-focused ultrasound to precisely heat tissue at multiple depths without affecting the surface of the skin. The result is a multi-dimensional lift that begins at the skin's foundation.
As seen on "The View", "20/20", "The Doctors" and "Dr. Oz", Ultherapy is an entirely new and unique type of nonsurgical treatment for the face and neck that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin without any downtime. One treatment triggers the body's own regenerative process of building new collagen to lift and tighten the skin - gradually, naturally, and from the inside out.
As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows your practitioner to plan where the energy will be sent. This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, all the while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. Your skin's response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.
Although not a laser, Thermage is another tool that we use to help tighten and contour the eyes, face and body in a single treatment ... with no surgery, no injections, and little to no downtime. Thermage® stimulates your body's natural renewal of collagen, which creates subtle, natural looking results for an overall younger looking appearance.
Thermage is a proven radio frequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. Benefits include the smoothing of wrinkly or uneven skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the face and body. Thermage radio frequency energy works with your body, remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want. Thermage treats targeted problem areas - so the results are focused and effective.
