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.

Plump your Lips!

If there’s one beauty treatment people can’t stop talking about, it’s lip enhancement. Lip fillers are becoming more popular amongst those looking to add structure, shape, and volume to their lips. It is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the US. Here is all you need to know before taking the plunge.

Lip injections have numerous benefits and are highly recommended for those who struggle with wrinkles and fine lines in the mouth area, have thin and poorly shaped lips, or desire fuller lips.

Dear Dr. Anne,

My friends all rave about Botox® and how great it is for women like myself. I have never had a cosmetic injection or procedure before. I would love for you to tell me a little bit more about Botox®  ... I think it's time I gave it a try.

Heather, Winston-Salem

 

Dear Heather,

You've come to the right place.

Botox® would likely be my first choice for treating your lines.

Dear Dr. Anne,

It's been an extremely busy summer. I've enjoyed so many fun times on the road with my two teenage daughters traveling to softball games, chauffering them to and from activities, as well as keeping up with the construction of our new home. Now that the kids are back in school and we are settled in our new home, it's time for me!

Dr. Anne L. White of Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center (www.CarolinaLaser.com) introduces the all new FDA-approved Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne dermal fillers to her practice.

As part of the Restylane® family of products from Galderma, the same successful hyaluronic acid base formula is used as Restylane® Silk but used primarily for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds. While Refyne treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Defyne is best at correcting the deeper, moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds or "parentheses" around the mouth....

Enchanting Eyes in no time!

Feb 28th, 2017 In: Anti-Aging, Eyes


As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, March 2017

Dear Dr. Anne,

When I was younger, I often received a lot of compliments on my eyes. As I've gotten older, my eyes look tired, and those compliments are few and far between. I want to turn back the hands of time and have captivating eyes again ... can you help?

Rebecca B.
Winston-Salem, NC

Dear Rebecca,

The eyes are one of the first features we notice about a person. Unfortunately, it is also the place where signs of aging first appear. As we age, the effects of gravity take hold, the brows begin to descend and the skin thins, creating upper eyelid hooding giving a tired look to the face. Crow's feet or wrinkles around the eyes appear, and dark circles develop on the lower lid under the eye.
