LAVAL, Quebec, May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. (NYSE: VRX) (TSX: VRX) today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Nestle S.A. to sell all rights to Restylane, Perlane, Emervel, Sculptra, and Dysport owned or held by Valeant for $1.4 billion in cash.  Nestle expects to complete its acquisition of Galderma S.A. in July and would expect to operate the acquired assets through Galderma.  The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including clearance or early expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act and is not contingent upon a successful transaction with Allergan, Inc. We believe that this transaction is extremely attractive both to Valeant and Galderma, and dovetails well with our announced plans for a transaction with Allergan.

"We are pleased to enter into this transaction," said J. Michael Pearson, chairman and chief executive officer.  "Galderma, under the leadership of Humberto Antunes, CEO of Galderma, not only has a history of building strong businesses, but is firmly committed to the aesthetic dermatology.  It is a clear testament to the performance of Valeant's aesthetic commercial team that Galderma recognizes their efforts and the value of the franchise they have developed.  Galderma has already built a strong franchise with Restylane, Perlane, Dysport and Emervel outside North America and, with the addition of Sculptra, will now have the ability bring their expertise to the U.S. and Canada."

This Year, Say Goodbye to Cellulite ... and Hello to Cellulaze

May 1st, 2014 In: Anti-Aging, Fat Removal
By Martie Emory Forsyth Family Magazine May 2014

Looking and feeling our best is a coveted goal we all share. For many women, cellulite is the big, bad enemy!

Eighty two percent of women report having some cellulite. It's that dimpling of skin we loathe (i.e., "cottage cheese" or "orange peel" thighs), especially as beach season nears and bathing  suits or shorts become the attire of choice. Most people think that diet and exercise are the fix for cellulite, but the truth is, they don't work.

"There's a misconception about cellulite. Having cellulite doesn't mean you are overweight," says Dr. Anne L. White of Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center in Winston-Salem. "Slender, even muscular women can have cellulite, and most... Read more

Say Goodbye to Cellulite

Apr 30th, 2014 In: Anti-Aging, Fat Removal


Winston-Salem Monthly - May 2014

Dear Dr. Anne,

Summer starts in just a few weeks, which means bathing suit and shorts wearing season is not far way ... yikes! I eat right and exercise, and nothing really seems to work to get rid of these  lumps and dents on my legs. What can I do to get rid of them?

Tammy, Winston-Salem

 

Dear Tammy,

Dimples are cute on a face, though not really cute on the rest of the body, are they? It sounds like what you're describing is cellulite. Did you know 82% of women report having some degree of cellulite? And while it appears to be on the skin's surface, cellulite is really a structural problem below the skin, caused by fibrotic bands that pull down on the skin. Heredity, gender and hormones all impact cellulite... Read more

How to Get Lovely Legs for Summer

Forsyth Woman - April 2014

Dear Dr. Anne,

I've never had legs like Carrie Underwood's, 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?

Delia S., Winston-Salem

Dear Delia,

My how youth is wasted on the young ... As the years pass, this same realization happens 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. Here at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center we can treat the veins, brown spots, fat... Read more

How to Get Enchanting Eyes

Forsyth Woman - March 2014
Read original article in Forsyth Family

This time of year, even with the official start of spring less than a month away, we may find ourselves feeling down, or maybe even a lot older (when we’re not), and looking it, too. Time waits for no man ... or woman. Inwardly, we may start to feel aches and pains we never had before and due to little exertion. The passing of time is also evidenced outwardly by the skin on our bodies, especially our faces. Does the face peering back at you from the mirror look tired, worried, or angry, when you’re not? Take another look in the mirror - a good long look - and you’ll likely see why.

The effects of aging are typically first noticeable around the eyes, where skin is... Read more

How to Get a HEALTHY GLOW this Winter

Jan 30th, 2014 In: Skin Care


Dear Dr. Anne,

My skin looks as gray, flat and dull as my garden does in winter. I need some color! Wearing more blusher makes it worse, and indoor tanning isn't good for me, from what I've been reading. What healthy ways can I give my skin a mid-winter boost?

Danielle, Lewisville

Dear Danielle,

Outstanding job on passing up indoor tanning as a viable cure for the winter blahs! The rise in skin cancer rates happens to coincide with the growth of indoor tanning. People who tan indoors are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma, 2.5 times more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma, and 1.5 times more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma than non-tanners. Indoor tanning is not an option that anyone in the medical community would recommend.

There are... Read more
