News update Dr Cat - November 2018 name

Wahooooo! Our Takapuna clinic is now open for business! It has been a tight squeeze to get it open, so I’m so thankful to our amazing team and the team of builders and construction workers from QPC, along with our amazing designer, Gerrick Numan, who have worked hard to get it open in a very short time frame. Thank you! 

It’s looking beautiful already and will receive a few more finishing touches over the next few weeks. We are looking forward to showing it off to you! 

Over the next few months, we will be introducing some additional services at Takapuna. You will have a mix of existing and new team members at both clinics. I will be working across both clinics, as will Marjorie and Emma for injectables, and Lauren for skin.  Dr Jenni will be the main doctor at Takapuna, and able to offer her dermatology knowledge to complement both our skin team and the lovely Wellness By Jessica - the beautiful hormonal nutritionist who will be joining our team - in helping you with concerns such as acne, psoriasis, pigmentation and sun damage, along with services for hair loss, low libido, leaky bladder, hormonal changes, fertility, tiredness, and optimum performance. 

As well as me, Marjorie, Emma and Sonia, Dr Jenni will be joined by our wonderful latest addition to the team, Cendrine - one of my dearest friends - who has been a cosmetic injectable trainer for the last year, and is responsible for the delicious bespoke TFP candles that we burn every day in the clinic to give our signature scent. The ‘Rejuvenation’ candle is available only through TFP, however, Cendrine has so many other incredible candle fragrances - you can check them out at Asylum Candles ( ). I usually have at least one burning when I’m home - my favourite one right now is ‘Solitary’, with Lotus, patchouli, and vanilla - yum! 


We also have the gorgeous and vivacious Bhavna joining our skin team at Takapuna. Bhavna has joined us from About Face, and has a great knowledge on all things skin, she will be receiving intensive training on our products and services, and has already done a wonderful job of my dermaplaning treatment at our team training day on Sunday! She will be starting with LED light therapy, microdermaplaning and the lighter peels in late November and most of December, while Lauren and Teresa will be available for the more intensive treatments such as needling, dermafrac, and the deeper nutritional peels. Bhavna is an absolute delight, and we are excited to have her join our team!

I just recently returned from my latest trip to Peru on Sunday - which was my third sacred plant medicine retreat in a year! Each time I go, I come back a different person - this retreat showed me how much I have tried to control and force situations in the past, and how relaxing, allowing and receiving is a much easier and more blissful way to follow our highest path in impacting the world and receiving abundance. In the last year, we have attracted so many incredible people and opportunities, and I believe that releasing my need for control, while trusting the team, and the process, has played a big part. I’m also incredibly grateful for the beautiful team we have, and the amazing opportunities that consistently show up! This coming year will be a very exciting year! 

Next week we will be launching my book on Amazon! Keep an eye on your inbox around Tuesday-Thursday next week, where you’ll get the opportunity to purchase the kindle version at a greatly reduced price of $1.99 USD. Your support will also help us get on the bestseller list! We will be launching the physical book to the media, alongside the launch of the new Takapuna clinic, on the 21st November. OMG, it’s finally actually happening! I feel nervous and excited all at the same time! 

This Friday I fly to LA for the night, to present an award at the US My Face My Body Awards. I was honoured to be invited to be a judge, alongside big names such as Dr Paul Nassif, from the TV program Botched, as well as my dear friend from South Africa, Dr Nicole Kanaris. The awards are like the Oscars of our industry, and there will be a fabulous line-up of all the ‘who’s who’ of the American cosmetic industry! I fly out Friday night, arrive in LA Friday afternoon, present the award Friday night, have brunch with the judges Saturday morning, and then fly out Saturday night, just in time to arrive home for work on Monday morning! I’m fortunate that I don’t get jet lag, and I love getting on a plane, as I always get so much work done! 

At the end of this month, I’ll be flying to Singapore for another Allergan ‘Train The Trainer’ 4-day conference. Allergan are the makers of Botox and Juvederm, and as one of their trainers, I get to play with their new product Juvederm Volite, which is an HA product designed for improving skin hydration, thickness and glow, rather than being used as a filler. Dr Jenni has already had extensive experience with this product, as it has been available in South Africa for a while, and our mutual friend Dr Izolda Hendryk is one of the major global trainers and investigators for Volite.  We have already started our internal trials for Volite, so hopefully, when I get back, we will have some early results to report back on! 

It’s hard to believe it is November already, and that ‘the silly season’ is just around the corner! It gets a bit crazy at this time of the year, so if you haven’t booked your pre-Xmas treatments yet, I’d encourage you to do it now, to avoid disappointment! 

Have the most wonderful month, and we look forward to seeing you in the clinic!


Loads of love and hugs, 


Cat 😻🙏😘
