Dear Dr. Anne,
I had a fabulous holiday with my family but as usual, I ate entirely too much and my waistband is paying the price! I need a way to get rid of these stubborn problem areas that diet and exercise won't get rid of. I have heard of Cool Sculpting, do you offer that procedure? Or do you have any other suggestions? Please help, my waistband is begging you!
- Grace from Winston-Salem, NC
You've come to the right place if you are looking to get rid of those stubborn problem areas! We made the choice not to offer Cool Sculpting and to wait for a more effective option. Now we have found it! We are confident that your waistband will thank you and your friends and family will be envious.
We are the first practice in North Carolina to offer SculpSure™ 25 Minute – Non-Invasive Body Contouring Treatment. SculpSure is ideal for people with trouble spots, particularly those that seem resistant to diet and exercise, like love handles. Some of the advantages of SculpSure vs. Cool Sculpting are:
- Treatment is faster - 25 minutes vs. 2 hours
- No swelling, numbness or skin discoloration.
- No late onset pain.
We are one of the only practices in North Carolina to exclusively offer Smartlipo Triplex™. We have been performing the procedure since its release and have completed over 1300 cases. With Smart Lipo we are able to sculpt more precisely to give our patients optimal results. Our patients feel minimal pain and they can return to work in just a few days. Smartlipo Triplex is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since your body has only a finite amount of these cells, no new fat cells come back. You can finally have that body you've always wanted.
So let’s get started! Call today for a consultation!

Dear Dr. Anne,
Christmas and New Years is fast approaching and we have many family gatherings during the holidays. I am NOT looking forward to seeing my sister-in-law because she is always so well-kept and neatly groomed. I want to look young and fresh like her but I don't have much time left. What would you suggest Dr. Anne?
Jacqueline, Clemmons, NC
Every family has that dreaded 'sister-in-law.' Looking good always makes you feel more confident. We want you to look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside, if not better. Unfortunately, sunlight, natural aging and lifestyle factors greatly impact our skin and all that support it.
Thankfully, now science can reverse the... Read more

Kybella™ is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition commonly referred to as the double chin. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS): 68% of people said they're bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin.
Kybella™ uses a naturally-occuring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected, Kybella™ destroys fats cells and once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
The injections are administered in a grid-like pattern (usually two vials per session) and the process requires at least two sessions spaced six weeks apart. Because it is an injectable, you can go about your day... Read more

You know that feeling you get when you're walking down the street feeling great and looking confident? Maybe you notice a few heads turn in your direction. Everyone deserves that feeling. "People want to look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside," commented Dr. Anne L. White of Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center.
Dr. White, a pioneer in the field of cosmetics, was the first person in the Winston Salem area to treat patients with injectable fillers following the FDA approval of Botox in 2002. Prior to the FDA approval, Dr. White received her training in Canada under Dr. Jean Carruthers, the first to use Botox in the field of cosmetic dermatology in North America. Since then, Dr. White has... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
Some inherit their mother's baby blue eyes, others inherit the height gene, I inherited the double chin. Growing up, I was made fun of for having no neck or chin. I am 33 years old. I eat right and work out everyday yet I can't get rid of it. As a man, I think this condition is harder on men than it is for women. Is there anything I can do that will not require surgery or have a long downtime?
Ryan G., High Point, NC
Not all of us are blessed to inherit the baby blues and being tall but you are not alone in this. We have found that 40% of our patients that come in for this issue are men. It sounds like, based on your age and lifestyle, you would be a good candidate for Kybella™,... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
It's been a long, hot, busy but glorious summer spent with my 3 active teenagers traveling to swim meets, chauffering them to and from activities, and overseeing some much needed renovations of our home. Now that the kids are back in school and renovations are complete, it's time for me! I would love to know more about Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC and Voluma fillers and injectables my friends all rave about.
Lory L., Bermuda Run
Sounds like you’ve enjoyed quite a busy summer! As the weather starts to cool down, Fall is a perfect time to refresh and recharge. Our Juvéderm® treatments are very popular with busy moms like yourself. Let me tell you a little... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
I will be renewing my wedding vows in October to celebrate 25 years of marriage. I realize I will not be the young, 24 year old bride I once was walking down the aisle, but I still look pretty good at 49. What procedure would you recommend to help tighten and tone the neck and brow areas in a more natural looking way that does not require a lot of downtime?
Krista M., Greensboro
First of all, let me congratulate you on 25 years of marriage. What an exciting time in your life! I would love to help you achieve your cosmetic goals for your special day.
Sounds like, based on your age, you would be a good candidate for Ultherapy, a unique type of non-surgical treatment for the face and neck that... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
My divorce was recently finalized and I'm ready to leave the past behind, move forward and take charge of my life. Unfortunately, my outward appearance doesn't match the peaceful human being I now feel on the inside. Lots of lines, wrinkles and stress have left their mark on my face. My friends say you're the expert when it comes to cosmetic, laser and dermatology treatments. What would you recommend that is natural looking and will give me immediate results? I'm ready to start living the life I deserve.
Mandy C., Advance, NC
Congratulations on moving forward and taking charge of your life. At Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, we are passionately committed to helping you look as... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
As I was applying makeup this morning, I noticed how strong looking the frown lines had become between my eyes. They make me look stressed and worried when actually, I'm a pretty laid back, happy-go-lucky kind of gal. Any suggestions on what I can do to look on the outside how I feel on the inside?
Marcia L., Winston-Salem, NC
You've come to the right place for skin care advice and we can definitely help you look and feel better about yourself. When squinting, laughing and frowning, our facial muscles contract and our skin creases. As we get older, our skin loses the elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on our face.
Dysport® is a... Read more
