ANNE Curtis was in Lisbon, Portugal for more than a week to shoot some very important scenes for her new movie with Marco Gumabao, “Just a Stranger” (their second after the hit “Aurora”), directed by the very prolific writer-director Jason Laxamana who also has simultaneous projects with Regal and Star Cinema. A pleasant surprise was waiting for Anne upon her return home just a few days ago. This is her double nomination in the best actress category in the Urian Awards. She’s first nominated for her movie with Dingdong Dantes, “Sid and Aya: Not a Love Story”, then for her solo action flick where she played a hardhitting female cop, “Buy Bust”.
“It’s indeed a very nice surprise,” says Anne. “I’ve never won an Urian award but just being nominated, and getting a double nomination at that, is truly such a big honor. Thanks very much to all the Urian members for their consideration.”
Anne is also so happy to be chosen by Dr. Vicki Belo to be the new face of Belo’s Thermage FLX. She couldn’t help but wow the crowd at the recent unveiling of Belo’s latest and most advanced machine in the wonderful world of aesthetic beauty --- the Thermage FLXwith her as its official ambassador at the Shangrila in The Fort, Bonifacio Global City.
Anne sashayed across the stage showcasing a more beautiful and youthful look – tighter and young-looking skin, more pronounced jawline and neck, and a more contoured face. She happily announced how pleased she was to have taken Dra. Vicki Belo’s word for it and tried Thermage FLX, the non-invasive treatment that helped lift her skin and added glow to it.
“I’ve been a Belo baby ever since I can remember as I started consulting with Dra. Belo as a teener, back when my skin problem was still acne,” she says. “So, it is but natural for me to go to her now that I am over 30. And as always, Dra. Belo delivers. I have experienced and seen first-hand Thermage FLX’s benefits and I just love it. The treatment is quick and comfortable, too, very good for busy people like me.”
During the launch, Anne brought the house down when she surprised everyone with a song number – Sia’s Chandelier – and belted the night away. And then she ended the song by saying, “Thank you and I’m sorry”, to the delight of the guests that night.
Thermage FLX marks another milestone in Belo Medical Group’s history. As expected from the country’s top medical aesthetic clinic, Belo is the first in the country to give patients access to Thermage FLX, the fourth and latest version, equipped with AccuREP, a system that helps the Thermage machine deliver significantly better results in a shorter time than the previous technology.
“This new Thermage is so wonderful for both patient and doctor. Our patients get effective tightening and lifting much faster, while our doctors are able to more quickly perform the procedures because Thermage FLX has a bigger foot and is much easier to use,” explains Dra. Vicki Belo. Book an appointment by calling 819-BELO (2356) or by logging on to www.belomed.com.
