You might have been thinking about it for years…

Maybe it’s the red veins on your cheeks, or the creases that used to appear only when you frowned, but now persist when your face is relaxed. Perhaps people ask if you’re tired when you’ve had a full night’s sleep. Have you reached the point you’re ready to act, but you’re not sure what the right solution is? We’d love to tell you what the next step is.
  • Appearance Medicine improves your skin, face and body without surgery. Our safe, effective treatments address wrinkles, facial sagging, unwanted hair, acne scarring, enlarged pores, facial veins, brown pigment, rosacea, sun damage and dull skin.

  • We have gentle treatments like peels and microdermabrasion to polish your skin. We can relax wrinkles with tiny injections, or reduce sagging with carefully placed dermal filler. We nourish collagen with natural platelet-rich-plasma and micro-needling, and fade red veins and brown pigment with medical grade lasers and IPLs. We have a huge range of the latest treatments dedicated to improving your skin.

  • Our friendly Appearance Medicine nurses are the core of our Appearance Medicine team. They are taught and supported by some of the best Appearance Medicine doctors NZ has to offer.

What can I expect during my Appearance Medicine Consultation?
  • Who do I see for my consultation?

    We think the best person to advise you is the qualified health professional who does treatments – not a salesperson. Our highly-trained Appearance Medicine nurses perform our consultations, personally spending time with you to listen to your concerns. They will be delighted to answer your questions, and give their honest advice.

  • What happens during a consultation?

    Firstly, we listen and learn about you. After you tell us about your concerns and goals, we assess your skin. We’ll teach you about the processes behind skin ageing, and what you can do to slow it. We’ll explain what your options are and why, so you’re fully informed. We might even show you before/after photos of other patients’ results to give you a visual preview. Our expert assessment combines with your goals to create a comprehensive treatment plan that is uniquely yours.

  • Is there anything I can do to prepare?

    Our website is a great resource to find out information. It has photos and videos, plus advice written by our experts. We think educated patients are empowered patients, so we love it when you’ve read up before you come in. Some patients like to bring in a photo of themselves when they were younger to help us visualise their goals. Please bring in any skincare products you’re using so we can record these accurately.

  • What happens after my consultation?

    That’s entirely up to you. There is no obligation to do anything after your consult. When you leave, you’ll likely have some information sheets to take with you about your options, guidance about cost, and a clear idea of the next steps if you wish to go ahead with treatment.
