Meet Smitee Ranchhod, Skin Institute Wellington’s Appearance Medicine nurse
Skin Institute
March 1, 2017

A Registered Nurse with over 10 years of experience in the Appearance Medicine industry, Smitee Ranchhod is your local Skin Institute Wellington Appearance Medicine nurse, offering a full range of cosmetic treatments and services.

What are your treatment areas of speciality?
I specialise in full face skin rejuvenation, using treatments like Botox®, dermal fillers and PRP; combined with my extensive knowledge of skin care to help my clients achieve a beautifully, natural look that leaves them looking and feeling refreshed and great for their age.

What is your patient/treatment philosophy – how do you approach each patient and treatment?
Clean, healthy skin is beautiful skin. There’s always room for improvement and my aim is to achieve optimal skin health and rejuvenation. I believe in not just treating my clients, but educating them on how they can help themselves –  empowering them to look after their own skin now and for the rest of their lives.

What do you love about being an Appearance Medicine nurse and why?
I enjoy being able to make people feel and look good about themselves.

What’s the biggest myths about Appearance Medicine that you hear all the time? And how do you respond to them?
Biggest myth I hear is that Botox® and dermal fillers give an unnatural result. This isn’t true if administered appropriately (correct amount of times and dosage) by a qualified and reputable practitioner you can trust. I believe less is more, and my aim is to achieve an overall refreshing glow on your face, without making you look unnatural.

Have you ever had Botox® or filler treatment? If yes – why?
Yes – I’ve had Botox® in my frown lines because I want to prevent static lines from forming and the brow lift is a bonus!
