Thermage - It's All New

Aug 13th, 2014 In: Anti-Aging, General

New Thermage for Eyes, Face and Body

Take Control of Your Aging Skin

Aging affects us all – the way we act, the way we feel, and definitely the way we look. But with advancements in skin care, you can have a say in the way aging affects your skin – and maybe even get back to the way you looked not so long ago. Thermage® is a proven, unique radio frequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. Thermage® works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It's you, just younger looking and more confident.

Thermage is effective on:

The Eyes

As you age, your skin's collagen and elastin simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them, causing your skin to lose elasticity—which often leads to wrinkles, and pockets of loose, sagging skin. The effects of age are typically most noticeable around the eyes, where skin is delicate and thin. Over time it will start to lose elasticity, beginning to droop and wrinkle, even creating heavy "hoods" that make you look older.

The Face

As we age, phrases like "turkey neck", loose jowls, sagging skin and "what happened to my jawline?" creep in. And after a lifetime of laughing, smiling, furrowing brows or lighting up in surprise, the skin on your face can really show the signs of aging. Your face is also the area of your skin most exposed to the elements, bearing the brunt of environmental factors like sun damage. Over time, the smooth, sleek look you once had breaks down, becoming uneven, and lined with wrinkles. Your features lose definition – especially in the jawline, lips and neck. Thermage smooths lines and wrinkles and remodels collagen for the overall health of the skin.

The Body

Skin is our bodies' largest organ, adapting everywhere to the changes in your shape, activities and lifestyle. As we age, our skin's resiliency and elasticity decreases – especially after major life events like childbirth – and sometimes never returns to that smooth skin feeling. For most people, age brings with it areas of uneven or unsightly bulges and dimples hat just can't be remedied with exercise or diet. It's skin – not fat – that often gets in the way of achieving the youthful look we all desire. Thermage is a non-invasive way to smooth the skin on our bodies and even temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite.

How Thermage Treatments Fit

Thermage is for when you want to tackle the effects of aging on your skin. You want to look younger and you want real results – but don't want the overly drastic change or extended downtime that comes with surgery. Thermage fits into any lifestyle and your current beauty regimen:

  • A single treatment that delivers results
  • Non-invasive and clinically proven to be safe
  • Minimal downtime, so it's easy to fit into your routine
  • Real change you just can't get from lotions and creams
  • Targeted, effective treatment that can help address the signs of aging on many areas of the body

How it Works, What it Does

Thermage is a proven radio frequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. Benefits include the smoothing of wrinkly or uneven skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the face and body. Thermage radio frequency energy works with your body, remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want. Thermage treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective.

Enchanting Eyes for Parents Night

Aug 4th, 2014 In: Anti-Aging


Winston-Salem Monthly - August 2014

Dear Dr. Anne,

We have had a great summer with the kids; beach trips, sailing, motor boating, waterskiing, way too much sun. I have noticed despite using sunscreen faithfully and wearing sunglasses, it has taken its toll on my eyes. My eyebrows are falling, bleached out and falling out at the edges. My forehead is wrinkled and the crow's feet are just ugly. And now I am getting bags under my eyes. Parents night is coming up soon. What can I do to look better so I won't embarass myself and my family at the opening of school?

How to Shine at Reunion Time this Summer

Jun 2nd, 2014 In: Anti-Aging


Winston-Salem Monthly - June 2014

Dear Dr. Anne,

I just realized my family reunion this summer is only a few weeks away. That means close-by sister-in-laws and lots of cameras ... yikes! My face looks sad and dull, even when I'm smiling. Can you  help? And quickly?!

Tracy D., Lexington

Dear Tracy,

Concern over looking sad when not is something we hear a lot from our patients. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, and gravity takes its toll. Our faces elongate and rotate inward. We lose the classic inverted triangle of youth, and our faces become wrinkled and rectangular, and heavier in the jowls. But don't despair, at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center, we offer a number of procedures and treatments that will turn your frown upside down and leave your... Read more

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

Read original article in Forsyth Family

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
