Cosmetic Treatments to Awaken Aging Eyes

Mar 16th, 2021 In: Anti-Aging, Eyes

The skin around your eyes can show the earliest signs of premature aging, especially without proper care. This skin is thinner and more delicate than the skin on the rest of your body. Also, your eyes are constantly working throughout the day, from blinking to expressing emotions. Ultraviolet rays, external stress, genetics, and lifestyle can also cause the skin around the eyes to age more quickly.

There are several eye skin issues that can occur as we age. Dark circles, crow’s feet, wrinkles, eye bags, hooding, and sagging skin. To prevent these and to reverse the signs of aging Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center has several options available.

A daily skincare regime is a top priority in keeping your eyes looking their best. Moisturizing is one of the most important steps. Since the skin around your eyes lacks oil glands they can be more prone to dryness. It is essential that you choose a moisturizer made especially for the skin around your eyes. GrenzCine Eye by Vivier is Dr. Anne White’s favorite. It is like magic in a bottle. It is specially formulated to increase firmness and hydration while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. It thickens the skin from the outside in and boosts collagen from the inside out.

When more is needed there are several non-surgical treatments available. From Profractional Laser Resurfacing, Thermage, Botox, and dermal fillers. These treatments can help remove fine lines, wrinkles, stimulate collagen, fill in volume loss under your eyes, erase dark circles, and provide a more awake look to your eyes.

Thermage uses radiofrequency (RF) energy, which is an effective way to go below the surface of the skin and improve elasticity by boosting tissue repair and collagen production. Even though this treatment works below the surface of the skin, you don’t have to worry about the long recovery times. There are minimal side effects associated with Thermage skin tightening, and many people notice results after just one visit.

Profractional Laser therapy penetrates the surface skin, stimulating the collagen from within and below and triggering its production. The laser beam is delivered in a pixelated manner, touching the skin in tiny dots, separated by areas of untreated skin. This leaves behind healthy skin cells unaffected by the treatment that rapidly heal the skin and markedly diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and eye bags.

Botox is primarily used to treat dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles occur naturally around the eyes and mouth, as well as in between your eyebrows. They become more pronounced with age. Botox injections relax the muscles near these wrinkles. Not allowing the muscles to move reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.

Restylane, a dermal filler, can help fix the problem area under the eyes. This delicate facial region, called the tear trough, might see wrinkles, under-eye hollows, dark circles, and thinning skin as early as our 20s. During tear trough filler treatment, a filler is injected into the fragile under-eye skin. In many cases, tear trough filler is an effective way to treat the hollowed-out look under the eyes and dark circles.

For preventative care get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, and eat a healthy diet. Reduce your screentime to avoid straining your eyes. Wear sunglasses and use sunscreen every day. Sun exposure can play a large role in aging skin by causing the skin under the eyes to darken. We have several medical-grade sunscreens at Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center to choose from.

Let us help you achieve more youthful, awake eyes. Call Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center today at (366) 659-2663 to schedule a consultation. Our highly trained nurses are overseen by Dr. Anne White, so you can be confident that you’ll receive the most effective medical skincare treatments and products.

Warm Sculpting with SculpSure, a Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment

What a crazy year 2020 has been for us all! We feel pretty confident we’re not alone in bidding it a swift farewell and looking forward to a better 2021. As we start the new year still under this pandemic many of us are still staying at home instead of traveling and attending fewer parties and events. This should mean less temptation to overeat or drink too much over the holidays, but not necessarily. Many of the holiday habits that result in weight gain from Thanksgiving to New Years’ can still be present without a busy social agenda. It is also easy to forget the work it takes to lose those extra holiday pounds, especially when you are enjoying that extra bite of cake!

If you have some extra fat on your body that you are finding difficult to lose, you can have it removed... Read more

Maskne, The Struggle is Real

Sep 21st, 2020 In: Skin Care, General, Did You Know?
The new normal requires us to wear masks daily. We are covering up our mouths and noses and some of us are developing a new problem - maskne, or mask related acne. When you breath or talk your mask traps in a lot of hot air creating a warm, humid environment that is ideal for yeast and bacteria to grow. These bacteria imbalances and the friction from wearing masks can cause acne breakouts.

Some ways to prevent this is wearing 100% cotton masks, changing your mask frequently especially after perspiring, and washing masks with fragrance free detergents. Use only lightweight lotion or sunscreen and skip the makeup. If you don’t want to skip the makeup make sure it is lightweight and nonocclusive.

Cleansing your face regularly will also help. Cleanse right before putting on your... Read more

Women's Resilience

Jul 27th, 2020 In: General, Did You Know?
Women have always been resilient. Rarely backing down on the things they believe in and appreciate. This was clearly evident several times throughout history. One example that speaks to us at Carolina Laser is the women soldiers, nurses, and those who were at home working to support those overseas. You will be hard pressed to find a photo of one that doesn’t look just as beautiful as ever. They never neglected their looks nor should you in the hard times we are facing now. Things now may not be as turbulent as then but it is definitely a concerting time. We hope that you don’t forget to take of yourself and your looks. It is important for your mental health to feel confident in yourself and we are still here to help you with that. Our staff is committed to keeping a safe and... Read more

Little Leaks Aren’t Just for Faucets

Sep 24th, 2018 In: General
I have two young boys which is evidence that I know a lot about pee. They pee everywhere. What I didn’t know is that I would have peeing issues. It happens when I laugh-I pee, I dance- I pee or do yoga- I pee. It’s no fun.

I exercise and do sit-ups but no matter how many kugels I do, it just doesn’t stop me from leaking. I found out that I could have a type of urinary incontinence known as stress incontinence. This is a common complaint among pregnant women, and some find that it continues to bother them after giving birth. It’s caused from all that pressure on your bladder, plus pregnancy hormones that throw your urinary muscles out of whack.

I have a close friend who is a partner at a law firm. She is constantly making presentations to clients. She told me... Read more

How does having a tattoo affect getting a job?

Aug 29th, 2018 In: Tattoo Removal
Tattoos have always fascinated me. When I was growing up only sailors and bikers had tattoos. Then came the nineties when it became fashionable to proudly display a “tramp stamp”, barbed wire, or Chinese character tattoos. Do you remember dolphin ankle designs? Then came the 2000’s and anklet status, and belly button tattoos were seen everywhere!  Zodiac signs and one word tattoos such as “Worthy” appear.

I asked my co worker why one would get a tattoo and she explained to me it is a “new generation memorial” I asked why you can’t buy a necklace with Batman on it instead of getting it etched in your skin permanently? She replied “, you can lose a necklace but I will remember the day my boyfriend and I did this... Read more
