Winston-Salem Monthly - November 2014
Dear Dr. Anne,
I can't believe the holidays are almost here! Here I am again, unprepared and dreading all of the photos that will be taken! I want to look my best at all of the parties and family get togethers I'll be attending. What can you do to help me sparkle this year?
Maria H., Clemmons, NC
I know how you feel! The holidays are such a wonderful time; full of good company and food, and there is never a shortage of cameras! And you are always comparing yourself to that perfect sister-in-law or high school prom queen that doesn't seem to age.
Here at Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center we offer a number of options to help you look your best for the holidays.
For giving your skin a glow and addressing skin texture concerns, there are many treatments available that involve little to no downtime. Laser Genesis and Laser Toning are wonderful procedures we offer to improve skin tone and eliminate surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage, and it is ideal for any part of your face, neck or decollete. The Picosure Lens Array offers CO2 like results with no downtime.
If wrinkles are getting you down, filers and/or injectables can be a quick and easy fix. We offer a number of both, each targeting specific areas of the face and depth of the fold. Treatment takes less than an hour and they go to work very quickly: fillers like Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse take effect immediately, and injectables like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin start working in 2 days and and show full results in just 2 weeks!
For even more options on helping you look your best for the holidays, join us for our Holiday Sparkle Party on December 10th. The festivities begin at 4pm with food, prizes, demonstrations and special prices on everything! So make your appointment to come see us - a sparkling new you this holiday is just a phone call away.

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
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
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?
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

Pat R., Pfafftown: My skin looks as gray and dull as the winter landscape! I've heard that using a tanning bed really isn't a good idea, plus I'd like a longer lasting and healthier option. What can you suggest to give my skin a desperately needed and relatively inexpensive pre-spring pick-me-up?
Dr. White: Don't despair, there are many ways to improve the look and health of your skin, though using a tanning bed isn't one of them. Using a tanning bed would actually damage your skin further, leaving you with even less healthy skin.
For healthy ways to freshen your look for Spring, there are a number of both laser and non-laser treatments that are safe, proven, non-surgical, and painless, from chemical peels, to microderm, to laser resurfacing. When you come in for... Read more
Jennifer: Dr. Anne, how do I take care of my skin in the winter months? This time of year my skin gets dry and chapped.
Dr. White: Jennifer, the dry air of winter, both indoors 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 too irritating soaps while bathing. Skin is more healthy when all of the natural oils are not stripped by too aggressive... Read more
