New FDA Approved Filler Restylane Silk Available at Dr. Anne White's Cosmetic Surgery practice Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center in Winston Salem

Winston Salem, NC February 3, 2015

 

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Dr. Anne White recently completed specialized training in the use of Restylane Silk, which is now available at her Winston Salem practice. Dr. White attended training hosted by Galderma, an Aesthetic Dermatology company that makes many of the leading injectables including Restylane and Perlane. Dr. White is one of the first Cosmetic Surgeons in North Carolina trained to use what has been called "lipstick in a syringe" because of the beautiful, natural, pearlescent lips it creates.

"I'm excited to offer this revolutionary new product to my patients in the Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point and Triad area." Dr. White says. Restylane Silk has been used for 16 years by Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists in Canada with excellent results. It is now approved by the FDA for use in the United States to give lips a more luscious appearance and minimize vertical lipstick lines and wrinkles around the mouth.

Restylane Silk is a soft tissue filler that is injected under the thin membrane of the lip. It is premixed with the anesthetic xylocaine so the patients are quite comfortable during the procedure. The comfort level of the patients is one of the most impressive things about Restylane Silk.

According to Galderma, Restylane Silk is made of smaller particles than the other fillers in the Restylane Family, which has been used to treat facial wrinkles and folds for years.. "I have found that the smaller particles make Restylane Silk easier to inject, better suited for the delicate lip area, and results in less swelling after the treatment."

Dr. White says she's excited to be able to add this tool to the wide array of non-surgical, no downtime and minimal downtime procedures she currently offers. She frequently combines injectable fillers with Botox or Dysport to give her patients full facial rejuvenation. The results are natural, she says, and quite remarkable.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, soft tissue fillers have become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. More than 2 million treatments are performed each year.

"At Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center we are dedicated to providing the very latest safe, effective, high-tech, non-invasive and minimally Cosmetic Surgery and Laser procedures," Dr. White says.

Anne L. White, M.D. is a Winston-Salem Cosmetic Surgeon and medical Director of Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, 336.659.2663. She was the first physician to introduce fillers to the Triad area and is well-known for her artistic eye and gentle touch. She is a Platinum Level injector with Galderma. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, American Society for Lasers in Medicine and Surgery, and the American College of Phlebology. www.CarolinaLaser.com

Dr. Anne White Talks Winter Skin Care 2015

Feb 5th, 2015 In: Skin Care
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

Permanently Melt Away Fat

Dec 27th, 2014 In: Fat Removal


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

Dear Steve,

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

Carrie M, Lewisville, NC

Dear Carrie,

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.

Firming is probably the biggest sought-after benefit in cosmetic surgery these days. One of the most effective treatments... Read more

Tattoo Regret? Learn How to Undo Your Tattoo!

Sep 30th, 2014 In: Tattoo Removal


Winston-Salem Monthly - October 2014

Dear Dr. Anne,

In college I decided to get a tattoo on a whim. Like many other young people, we make decisions without thinking and regret our choices later. Fast forward 10 years and now I am a mom and have  a career that I'm proud of. What I'm not proud of is this doggone tattoo. Can you help me undo this mistake from college?

Jen H., Winston-Salem

Dear Jen,

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a story like yours I would be a rich woman! Getting a tattoo often represents a milestone or a memory in a person's life, but according to consumer research studies, nearly 20% of the 45 million Americans with tattoos will eventually regret their decision. And surprisingly enough, 69% of patients who want their tattoos... Read more

Get Smoother, Tighter, Younger Looking Skin Without Surgery

Sep 2nd, 2014 In: Anti-Aging, Skin Care


Winston-Salem Monthly - September 2014

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

Lori M., Winston-Salem

Dear Lori,

You are not alone! I hear from so many women who, like you, look in the mirror every day wishing they could turn back the hands of time. Unfortunately wishing alone will not work! For many, a facelift is not an option due to the cost and recovery it requires.

There is a wonderful alternative that is non-invasive, safe, and... Read more
