It’s getting exciting at our Takapuna site, with the walls going up and everything currently on track for us to open in early November. Willie and the team at QPC Commercial are working hard alongside our designer Gerrick Numan to deliver us a stunning new clinic, on time and on budget!🤞🏻🤞🏻 Dee, Mikayla and myself visited the clinic yesterday (pictured above). It's so exciting seeing it come to life!
We were delighted with the news that the incredible Leah Light Nails and Beauty team are going to be our new neighbours at Takapuna! Leah already has an incredible reputation for nails (she does Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Ozzy Osbourne, and most recently, Pink, while they’re in NZ) and is one of NZ’s top influencers... what I didn’t know is that her background is hairdressing, so we are excited that they will be offering gorgeous hair and nails right next door to us, on Level 1 of 10 Northcroft St, with The Department Store just underneath!
We are so thrilled to be working next to Leah!
We’ll be a holistic North Shore Beauty Destination, especially with the fantastic news that we will have the wonderful women’s health/hormone balancing nutritional specialist @wellnessbyjessica working with our team. Jess worked alongside Dr Libby and helped publish her Recipe Book, before setting up her own business and travelling overseas for further training in both nutrition and herbal medicine. Jess is passionate about women’s health, hormone balancing and proper nutrition, and will be an asset for both our skin team to work alongside - for acne, psoriasis and rosacea - and our medical team, to assist with sex drive and memory in perimenopause, alongside the O-Shot and ThermiVa.
At around the same time we officially launch the Takapuna Clinic, I’m hoping we will be launching my first book ‘Grow Younger And More Beautiful As You Age’. As you know, I’m passionate about positive ageing, and so have combined some of the biohacks and tips that I have found helpful in living a powerfully healthy, happy and (hopefully) long life, with a guide on cosmetic treatments, and some hints on attitude, mindset and meditation. I believe Growing Younger is a choice we make, every day, and I’m excited to share the choices with you in my book! Here’s a sneak peek of the cover, and a link to pre-register, so you can get it at a special price!

What do you think of my book cover? I love it!
Just recently, I was interviewed on Radio Live by Wendyl Nissen - initially it was about my book, but we quickly got into diverse topics such as how none ages in the face, what can fillers do, and how we start looking like our mum’s (or in my case, my dad) as we age! It was a fun interview, and if you haven’t heard it already, you can check it out here!
Me in Wendyl's chair!
I’m soooo excited that we finally have our proper online booking system up and running!! We have lots of other exciting new initiatives on the way too, so please check out the online booking, and watch this space!!
We have a wonderful new doctor and nurse joining our team... Dr Jenni Tapson is a highly experienced cosmetic injector and trainer who is joining us from South Africa. She is moving her whole family to NZ, and we are so delighted that she approached us about working with us! In additional to being the Regional Country Mentor for doctors training in Botox and Juvederm in South Africa, Jenni has her dermatology diploma, and has a beautifully aligned aesthetic and philosophy to the rest of our team. She brings her husband, 8 year old twins, and 19y old daughter with her, and will be working about 30 hours a week at the Takapuna Clinic.
Cendrine is the latest nurse to join our team, and addition to being one of my closest friends for nearly 20 years, she has most recently been a cosmetic injectables trainer for NZMS, one of our suppliers. She has the most crazy and wicked sense of humour, and a fabulous Joie de Vivre (and her French is way better than mine, being half French in origin!). Fun fact - Cendrine helped me run the clinic for 6 months before Treena started working for us nearly 15 years ago!!
While we will have extra ‘hands on deck’ with the Takapuna Clinic opening in November, I would still encourage you to start booking any appointments in the lead up to the Xmas holidays now, to avoid disappointment.
I will be away in Peru for a couple of weeks at the end of October, and will then fly up to LA for the night for the American My Face My Body Awards on 9 November - as a judge (alongside Dr Paul Nassif, from the TV program ‘Botched’), I’ve been asked to present an award on the night!
At the end of November, I will spend just a few days in Singapore attending a Train The Trainer conference with Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm).
A little side celebration - this month, we became the only single site clinic in NZ to reach Black Diamond level with Allergan. This means we use approximately the same number of vials of Botox and syringes of Juvederm per year as the top chains of clinics with their multiple locations... we could only achieve this with the incredible support of amazing clients like you, and an wonderful team of experts who LOVE the impact we provide for you!
I’m so proud of the beautiful clients and team that we are fortunate to have, and the next few months are going to be busy, but super-exciting!!
It will be so much fun updating you over the next few newsletters! Have the most amazing month, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to connect...
Big hugs and love, have the most amazing month!
Dr Cat 😻😘🌟
