Annie has her bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University, is board-certified in aesthetics (licensed skin care therapist), laser and microneedling certified, and also obtained her CANS certification in Aesthetics nursing. Annie is one of the couple hundred in the country to obtain the CANS certification, which is the highest level a professional can obtain in her role as an RN.

An Arizona native, Annie was born and raised in Phoenix, and now lives in the Phoenix (Arcadia) area with her husband, Todd Thurston, and their Rhodesian Ridgeback/German Shepherd rescue dog, Kam. In her free time, Annie enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling, art, interior design, reformer pilates, hiking, HIIT training, wine-tasting, and attending on-going educational events + trainings located throughout the nation, and the world. Most recently, Annie attended an advanced, one-on-on training program in London, England with the world-renowned physician, Dr. Tapan Patal at the esteemed PHI Clinic and Academy 102 on Harley Street.

"Skin Charm is my way of putting a personal, warm, welcoming, and comforting touch in both the aesthetics world but also the patient experience."

More About Annie

My name is Annie, but my friends all call me Annabelle. I was very fortunate to grow up in a warm and loving home, and I can remember the great joy hosting friends + family would bring my family and I. I still love hosting today, and I could not think of a better concept to incorporate in to my work-life craft. Medical procedures and injectables (especially when it comes to your face!) can sometimes be a scary and unnerving experience. I take facial aesthetics medicine very seriously, and I am honored to be your medical provider of choice. It is truly my mission to make my patients look and feel like the best version of themselves, always.
