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 safely and easily. Dr. Anne White can help you using a laser device called SculpSure. Many people in the Winston-Salem, NC area have already received the benefits from this non-surgical approach and are enjoying their new beautifully contoured bodies.

Warm Sculpting with SculpSure is a laser treatment that is applied to your fat areas with a hand-held device. The light from the laser harmlessly penetrates your skin and goes into the fat layer beneath. In the fat layer, the laser will begin to warm up the area. Once it reaches a certain temperature, the fat cells will begin to overheat and die. This sets in motion a process called lipolysis, in which your body will start to remove the fat from that area.

The laser can be used in many areas where there are pockets of excess fat and is FDA approved. It can be used to treat fat in your midsection, your bra line, thighs, and chin. In addition to these areas, men can have it applied to help them remove fat on their chest.

Using the SculpSure method is not an immediate means to lose fat. Instead, you will see a gradual loss of fat in the treated areas. You will likely begin to see a difference in about six weeks. You should see the maximum benefit in about three months. This is a natural process that takes time.

At Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, you can expect each treatment to last about 30 minutes. Once the treatments are completed, you will be able to resume your regular schedule. There is no downtime necessary because it is a non-invasive procedure.

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

Dear Dr. Anne,

Over time, I have noticed that my chin now droops to my neck. It also seems that I have counted more wrinkles and fine lines than I am comfortable with. I want to love my look again, but can’t afford any pricey surgeries or a long recovery time. Can you recommend anything that would help?

Ultherapy Non-invasive Lift

Aug 2nd, 2016 In: Anti-Aging, Fat Removal, General


As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, August 2016

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 similiar to a facelift. I've tried creams, had facials and stayed out of the sun but the my skin is still sagging! What would give me the tightening I want without going through an actual surgery?

- Joanne, Greensboro

Dear Joanne,

You are not alone! I hear from so many women who, like you, look at the mirror everyday wishing they could turn back the hands of time. Unfortunately, wishing is not enough! For many, a facelift is not an option due to the cost and the recovery time.
There is a wonderful alternative that is non-invasive,... Read more
