Dr. Carranza Says:

Dr Carranza, Recently I visited Reelfoot Arts Festival. While there I talked to some friends that I hadn't seen in several months. They were discussing my new hair style. One person commented that the new style made me look younger. My question is, was it my hair or was it the work you did on my face with BellaFill? Thanks a million for a more youthful appearance that you gave me!...
