Beauty destination: FaceWorks, where beauty runs in the family

Raised watching her mother’s impeccable work in the field of cosmetic medicine, it was only natural that Leigh Cattin would join Dr. Teresa Cattin’s highly regarded FaceWorks clinic in Mairangi Bay, quickly accruing an impressive client list of her own.
Highly trained in the use of neuromodulators and cosmetic fillers and a leader in her field, Teresa has over 20 years' experience in cosmetic medicine and is famed for her less-is-more approach to graceful ageing. A past President of the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine who is regularly invited to speak at international conferences, she pioneered the use of the ‘French Touch’ approach to injectables in New Zealand, effectively using carefully placed, very small amounts of cosmetic injectables to subtly and discreetly rejuvenate and enhance the face. When it comes to recommendations for those hesitant to try injectables it’s Teresa I point them towards every time – and every time they come away beyond happy with the results.
Leigh, a newly graduated doctor, is planning to follow in her mother's footsteps with a career in family medicine and appearance medicine, and the pair thrive on the working environment that a mother-daughter relationship brings. Working from Teresa's clinic on Auckland's Apollo Drive, Leigh, who has a particular interest in neuromodulators and lip enhancements for younger patients, has bought an impressive new dynamic to the space and a raft of new clients who appreciate the considerable difference that taking a subtle but considered approach to injectables makes.
“With younger patients, it's not about softening age-related changes on the face, but about carefully enhancing the client's natural beauty,” says Leigh. “Sometimes a lip may be just slightly too thin or asymmetrical, and a very small amount of product can make all the difference in a way that is not at all obvious or ‘done’ looking.”

Both women are passionate about the French approach to appearance medicine, with Teresa saying: “There is increasing evidence that tiny amounts of neuromodulators given regularly and started at the right time can actually prevent very deep lines from forming.
“Deep lines aren't necessarily a result of age at all. They can be a family trait, which can start at a much younger age. Neuromodulators control the development of these family traits beautifully, for natural results that never look frozen.”
Incredibly serene but with just the right amount of comfort thrown in for good measure, the clinic is a true reflection of the professionalism and warmth you experience when you meet Teresa and Leigh, making it a true “beauty destination” worthy of a mention.
