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 young on the outside as you feel on the inside. We have lots of great treatment options and I'll touch on three of those.
Radiesse® Not only does this wrinkle filler give you immediate results, it also continues to provide added benefit by stimulating the production of your own natural collagen. By adding instant volume, wrinkles and folds can disappear immediately. And in many patients, results lasted a year or more.
Belotero Balance® is a transparent hyaluronic-based cohesive gel dermal filler used for the correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds and for lip augmentation.
Belotero Balance® filler is designed to deliver natural-looking results with little recovery time.
Xeomin® We also offer Xeomin® for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines - more commonly known as frown lines - between the eyebrows, which is one of the most commonly treated areas here at Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center.
So let's get started. Call today to schedule a consultation. I will customize a treatment plan that's right for you and start you on your way to looking younger for longer.

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.

Dear Dr. Anne,
I decided to listen to my doctor's advice to help with my blood pressure, and BMI, so I started exercising, eating healthier, and I have lost over 40 lbs so far but I can't seem to lose the pooch in my lower abdomen area. I need another 5lbs. off and I am at my goal weight! I feel more energetic and ready to show the world my "almost" bikini body off this summer. Any suggestions for losing this leftover fat and does it come back if I happen to overindulge on vacation this year?
Donna G., Clemmons, NC
It definitely sounds like you are on the right track! Focusing on the new bikini body also helps with the drive, dedication and willingness to help yourself and I commend you on your goals you've set forth. However, sometimes... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
I've never had legs like Taylor Swift, but they've looked nice enough for me to confidently wear shorts and skirts in spring and summer. Not this year! I can see freckles, old scars from shaving, and bursts of veins all over my legs. What can you recommend for getting my legs ready for summer?
Lisa S., Welcome, NC
Every year this same realization comes to most people in the spring when we start to shed our layers of winter clothing in favor of more lightweight and skin baring styles and we have our "Home Alone" moment, egad! Here at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center we can treat the veins, brown spots, fat pockets, and errant... Read more

Winter Skin Care
The dry air of winter, both indoor and outside, can make it difficult to keep skin from getting dry, chapped, and itchy. Harsh wind, low humidity, and indoor heating are common factors that sap moisture from the skin. This time of year, it’s especially important to protect your skin, keeping it healthy, moisturized, and youthful. The following tips will help.
Cleansing And Bathing
There is a common misconception that skin needs to be “squeaky clean.” People often spend too much time as well as use irritating soaps while bathing. Skin is healthier when all of the natural oils are not stripped by too aggressive or too frequent bathing regimens. Below are some suggestions to treat your skin kindly while at the same time effectively... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,
I decided I was going to set a healthy example for my children so started exercising, eating healthier, and I have lost over 60 lbs. I feel more comfortable in every aspect of my life except for my lovehandles. Any suggestions for firming and tightening loose skin?
Steve L., Kernersville, NC
A 60lb. weight loss is amazing! Losing weight takes diligence and dedication and I commend you for the positive changes you have made. But sometimes, no matter how strictly you diet or exercise, you just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, especially around the abdomen.
Firming is probably the biggest sought-after benefit in cosmetic surgery these days. One of the most effective treatments available for firming today is SmartLipo... Read more
Dear Dr. Anne,

Carrie M, Lewisville, NC
Good for you! Wow, 40 lbs! Losing weight takes commitment and consistency and I commend you for the positive changes you have made. But sometimes, no matter how strictly you diet or exercise, you just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, especially around the abdomen and thighs.
