e are what we see on social media, so with enhancing, lightening, and brightening tools, we create the “new me” and often we start to believe this is how we truly look. Beauty is no longer just in the eye of the beholder but in the eye of social media acceptance. Everyone wants to look fresh, young, and gorgeous and sometimes 100 shots are taken to get the perfect one to post. A filter or two later, and wow - there you are, looking gorgeous for all your friends to comment on. Holy cricket - if they could really see you, sitting on the couch in your PJs with your dull skin and greasy hair after a long day, eating a cheese toastie and sipping on tea. This is more than likely one of the key reasons why our beauty industry continues to grow and be so successful. Facial enhancements, skin resurfacing, fat melting and freezing are busier than ever! There is an abundance of options out there, for whichever issue you are looking to treat. No one is forced to live with even a single blemish. When we look at ourselves, we want to love and accept ourselves but society has changed what used to be the norm. The dewy look one would get out on the farm is now created with highlighters and contouring. I am part of this system and I know for a fact that when I look good, I feel good. Whether it’s the full treatment - fillers, botox and facials or simply getting my nails done and the perfect sun-kissed tan. However, there is something refreshing about waking up and having a day with no makeup and simply just being. This isn’t always easy, and I’ve been recently introduced to Ārepa, a caffeine-free drink, sourced in nature and created by neuroscience to induce mental clarity. Perfect for those long days when your brain seems to fail you. Another important part of your beauty routine is sleep. I’ve discovered the incredible Rewind Back-sleep Pillow which is ergonomically designed to promote back-sleeping. This reduces sleep wrinkles by helping your body learn to sleep on your back, and stay there once asleep. In this issue, we show you our favourite doctors, surgeons, beauticians, naturopaths and everything in between who we recommend and know are ethical with a proven success rate. Remember, be bold. Treat yourself to that procedure you’ve always wanted or take a day without makeup - at the end of the day, it is up to you, not social media, on how you want to feel about yourself.

I wish you wellness and happiness. Enjoy this book.

Understanding age and fertility

The road to pregnancy is not always smooth. At Fertility Associates, specialist Dr Mary Birdsall outlines the key factors affecting fertility and provides tips to getting pregnant if it is taking longer than expected.


ew Zealand couples are leaving having their children till later in life, and today 1 in 4 couples will experience infertility. Understanding your own fertility is a great first step towards having a baby. Even if you are thinking of putting it off a bit longer.

Fertility screening Fertility screening is ideal for couples, single women and men who are wondering about their fertility potential. Couples can have tests to check their potential fertility which can help decide when to start trying for a family and whether they might have diffculty. Male screening is also crucial, so bringing them along to the first appointment if possible is a good place to start. Discovering fertility problems early can mean earlier treatment and a successful pregnancy. For both men and women there are a range of tests available.

Fertility tests for women The number of eggs in reserve: Ovarian Reserve is a term used to determine the capacity of the ovary to provide egg cells that are capable of fertilization. • AMH Test (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) is the best test currently available to estimate ovarian reserve and who might lose their fertility earlier, however it cannot show who is more fertile than average, nor does it predict ovarian reserve in women with Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS). • FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) Until the advent of AMH, doctors used FSH to estimate ovarian reserve. AMH is more predictive than FSH in women under 40. FSH is still a useful test for women in their later fertility years and is taken on day 2 or 3 of your menstrual cycle. • Scanning, another useful part of screening fertility is a pelvic scan. This can show any potential problems that could give rise to fertility issues i.e. ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps and blocked tubes. This can pick up issues even if there are no presentable symptoms. No one test will give you all the answers you need to understand your fertility that is why we recommend a consultation with one of our specialists. Where, as well as screening your specialist will discuss other influencers such as your medical history, family’s fertility history and lifestyle factors. 28

Fertility tests for men As for women, men can proactively test their fertility. • A semen analysis is a good test to start with. It looks at the number of sperm, their shape and ability to move. The number of sperm in a sample covers a wide range for fertile men (e.g. 20-400 million/ml). The number of sperm can fluctuate week by week, so it is important to check a low result to see if that is always the situation. Another useful test, often combined with a semen analysis is a test for sperm antibodies which can reduce the sperm’s ability to get through the cervical mucus to eventually reach the egg for fertilisation. • Simple hormone tests, in men the hormone FSH stimulates the production of sperm. A higher FSH level may mean that that sperm production is very low.

Understanding age and fertility My advice to all women considering having a baby in their 30s and 40s is to understand your own Biological Clock. Fertility Associates has developed an online Biological Clock to help identify a woman’s chances of giving birth at any given age. It is also designed to help identify the right time to seek help if you are not getting pregnant. You can check it out here biologicalclock.co.nz or search it on our website fertilityassociates.co.nz. Age is important for women with normal fertility, and also for people needing fertility treatment. If you are concerned at any age – don’t delay, having a conversation with a specialist is the very best thing you can do to understand your options.

If you have any questions or just want to talk through your options we offer a free nurse consultation, with one of our trained fertility nurses. You can book this online at fertilityassociates.co.nz or by calling 0800 255 522.

Stamford Plaza Governors Suite

Booking Your Post-Surgery Vacation Plastic surgery is on the rise.


t is not clear exactly how much cosmetic surgery is performed in New Zealand, as national statistics are not collected. However, it is generally accepted that the last 10 years has seen a significant increase. In the USA, there 1.7 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2015, a 2% increase on 2014 statistics. As cosmetic procedures become more accepted in New Zealand, both men and women are opting for a range of treatments. From the minimal, non-invasive to full-blown facial surgery - the options are endless. At the end of the day, no surgery is without risk, or downtime, and the actual surgery is only half of the story. Recuperating after a surgery isn’t always easy, facelift surgery can take at least two weeks while a tummy tuck requires three to four weeks. For those with young children at home, or other responsibilities, it can be hard to avoid stress. Ideally, it is best to recuperate in a place where you can concentrate on yourself, and relax rather than worry. In this case, a luxury hotel is ideal. Not only do they have all the amenities you will need in house, but can also provide additional pampering while you recover. It also reduces the chances you will run into your neighbours! One of the city’s premier hotels, the Stamford Plaza Auckland, is the ideal choice for a post-surgery vacation focused on recovery 38

and relaxation. From the moment you approach reception you’re surrounded by a sense of charm and sophistication. Each room has bespoke furniture along with environmentally conscious facilities and improved entertainment interfaced with the latest technology. Drift away in the crisp linen beds and wake up to a stunning view of the Auckland cityscape or Waitemata Harbour. The Stamford Plaza Auckland is the perfect place to spend your post-surgery period, the attentive staff and high standard of service will ensure your every need is taken care of. For those looking to go further South than Auckland, look no further than Queenstown’s The Hideaway. Regarded as one of the finest positions in the Wakatipu basin, the 22-acre property offers complete elevation and privacy in a setting of open, undulating land. Beautifully furnished throughout, this luxury home comes with a spa pool, indoor and outdoor fireplace, as well as many other features. If you’re looking for a private escape, The Hideaway has enough space for the whole family without feeling crowded. Before you book your next procedure, think about the aftercare and book a week or two at a place that can take care of all your needs. Not only will you feel better, but it can also help speed up the recovery process, and, for many patients, that makes it all worth it.

Superbly located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD and situated a short walk from shopping and entertainment precincts, Stamford Plaza is truly one of the finest 5-star accommodations Auckland has to offer. The 286 Guest Rooms and Suites start at 36m2 and infuse the senses with style and sophistication and the 10th floor pool, gym and other leisure facilities offer unrivalled views of the harbour and city.

Dr Michelle Locke Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon MBChB, MD, FRACS (Plastics)


r Michelle Locke specialises in all forms of breast reconstruction. She is regularly asked by her clients, “What’s the best type of reconstruction?”. This is not a straight forward question, as the best choice can be different for everyone. The right reconstruction for you can depend on your body type, your lifestyle, your long term ideals and your personal preferences. Here, Dr Locke tries to answer some of the most common questions she is asked.

“Is an immediate or a delayed reconstruction better?” Immediate reconstruction is performed at the time of your breast cancer surgery (mastectomy) while delayed reconstruction is performed some time later. Immediate reconstruction is often preferable, as it allows more of your breast skin to be preserved. This usually means a better cosmetic result in the long term. Sometimes immediate reconstruction isn’t recommended if your type of breast cancer means you’ll need further treatment, such as chemotherapy. In this case, it can be better to delay your reconstruction until you have fully recovered from your cancer treatment.

“How long does breast reconstruction take?” There are several different ways to reconstruct breasts and each one takes a different amount of time. Generally, using breast implants is the quickest and simplest option. Sometimes this will be a two stage operation, with a process of expansion first before the definitive implant is placed. Making a breast from your own tissue (autologous reconstruction) usually takes longer, but can often re-create the breast mound in a single operation. 40

Regardless of the technique used, secondary operations are common, for touch up surgery and nipple reconstruction.

“Will there be scars?” Implant based reconstruction can usually be performed through the mastectomy scars alone. Autologous reconstruction moves tissue from one part of your body (commonly the abdomen or back) to your breast area. This means there are additional scars in the other area.

“How long do breast implants last?” Breast implants are medical devices which won’t last forever. On average, they last around ten years, but it can be shorter or much longer than this. When you have breast implants placed, you must expect to have further surgery on your breasts at a later date.

“What is the advantages of using my own tissue?” Making a breast from your own tissue is a much more major operation, but can give the best results. The reconstructed breast is entirely natural and the appearance is usually stable and permanent. Newer techniques such as the DIEP flap allow your muscles to be spared, so core strength is preserved. To meet Dr Locke and discuss which reconstruction is best for you, contact St Marks Breast Centre in Auckland.

The New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine (NZSCM) nzscm.co.nz The NZSCM is the only unified body in Cosmetic Medicine in New Zealand representing the profession and providing training, supervision and professional accreditation. They strive to provide a professional environment in which physicians with an interest and/or expertise in Cosmetic Medicine can develop the skills required for the pursuit of excellence in the modalities encompassed by Cosmetic Medicine.

SkinCentre skincentre.com SkinCentre offers a complete range of skin care from skin cancer treatment for melanoma, basal and squamous cell carcinoma. You are in safe hands with their cosmetic procedures including appearance medicine treatments (Botox and Restylane), and cosmetic surgery treatments (Blepharoplasty, Liposculpture and Minimal Incision Facelifts). 41

Minimising the risk of your next Cosmetic Medicine Procedures Choosing an NZCSM doctor you can be confident that you are in good hands.


s the demand for cosmetic procedures increases, some consumers are looking for a deal. They may hear of a cheap injector working out of their house and think it’s a great bargain. What they don’t realise is practitioners like these may have no New Zealand qualification, use counterfeit products, non-sterile syringes, or dangerous techniques. The risks are not just a poor result, but complications include infection, blindness, scarring and disfiguration and in extreme circumstances deaths have occurred. This is an unacceptable development that has gone largely unchecked in Europe and Australia. The NZ Society of Cosmetic Medicine was founded 15 years ago to address these concerns and protect New Zealand patients from the excesses seen in other parts of the world where it is seen as the patients job to sort out the qualified from the unqualified practitioners. NZSCM is the single unified body in Cosmetic Medicine in New Zealand, representing the profession and providing training, supervision and professional accreditation.

What differentiates an NZSCM doctor? Cosmetic Medicine professionals cannot merely “join up” to NZSCM. After qualifying as a Fellow of the GP College or other related Fellowships in surgery, dermatology or ophthalmology, a candidate applies to study the two year Diploma in Cosmetic Medicine.


The diploma course involves dozens of training workshops and lectures, and culminates in both written and practical examinations. Once a doctor passes the training programme, they become Member of NZSCM (MNZSCM). To ensure ongoing quality for patients, all members are assessed three yearly to confirm participation in medical education and the upholding of Society standards. By choosing an NZSCM doctor you can be confident that you are in the hands of a well trained and competent practitioner, using safe and effective products. With an NZSCM doctor you’ll be made fully aware of the details of the procedure and possible side effects, and the results you can realistically expect. Every patient has the right to decline procedures, no matter how much time they have spent with their doctor in discussions. NZSCM is about educating you, the patient, as well as our practitioners. Before you go ahead with a treatment, check if your doctor is NZSCM accredited. Cheap cosmetic procedures may seem to save money, but you can end up paying a much higher price long term, fixing mistakes made by incompetent, poorly trained practitioners. In an NZSCM accredited clinic you can rest assured you will receive the best advice, be well-informed of the risks and results, and have a positive experience.

Back-sleep your way to beauty


t’s a fact that as we age, we develop lines or wrinkles. Some are caused by frowning, smiling and other muscle movement and other wrinkles are unrelated to movement or expressions and can be caused by the positions in which we sleep.

Are you a stomach or side sleeper?

The only way to prevent sleep wrinkles is to stop sleeping on your side or stomach. For many people this is easier said than done, as lifetime habits are very difficult to break. Some people really struggle to learn to fall asleep on their back, and even those who are good at training themselves to sleep on their backs, often Do you have sleep wrinkles? wake up on their side, having turned over during sleep.

The Ultimate Skin Boosterthat actually works


kin rejuvenation treatments are aplenty, however, it is finding one that works that can be difficult. We have an abundance of appearance medicine clinics offering a range of treatments and products, all designed to make us look young, fresh and glowing. One of the most trusted names in Appearance Medicine in New Zealand is FaceWorks. Established in 1998 by one of New Zealand’s first cosmetic physicians Dr Teresa Cattin, FaceWorks is regarded as a centre of excellence for appearance medicine and skin rejuvenation treatments. FaceWorks latest offering, the Redensity I Skin Booster Treatment, a cocktail of 14 different antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and hyaluronic acid, has been heralded as a skin rejuvenation treatment that actually works. FaceWorks describes the Redensity 1 treatment as the ‘Ultimate Skin Booster’. Why? It’s a skin rejuvenation treatment that actually works to recover a healthy glow, thicken skin, increase elasticity and hydration. This innovative treatment combines the proven benefits of skin needling (stimulation of collagen, elastin and fibroblasts) while delivering a Dermo-Restructuring Complex (Teoxane) composed

of 8 amino acids, 3 antioxidants ,zinc ,copper and Vitamin B6 and hyaluronic acid (non cross-linked) - all vital ingredients for skin health, protection and repair. In a nutshell, it takes skin needling into the 21st century. At FaceWorks the Redensity 1 treatments are combined with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and LED treatments as a treatment package, reducing brown spots and redness to give even better results. “As we age we need to address 3 separate issues- muscle movement causing unwanted lines ( for which we use Botox), volume loss ( for which we use dermal fillers) and changes in skin quality which we can improve with treatments like Redensity 1, IPL, Fraxel and so on,” explains Dr Cattin. “Tailoring a combination of these 3 specifically for each individual will provide the most flattering and natural looking results, helping to soften any unwanted signs of facial ageing without changing the patient’s natural beauty” A course of 3 treatments at least 3 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. After the full treatment, fibroblasts will be activated, promoting new collagen and elastin in the skin and delivering healthy looking, hydrated skin. 51

Is Botox Safe?


re you considering getting Botox? You aren’t alone - Botox is the most popular injectable worldwide. Every year, millions of people, both men and women, have Botox injected into themselves to treat various conditions. In 2015, more than 6.7 million Botox procedures were performed, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, making it the most common minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Why is Botox so popular? Simply put, it is because it works and has minimal health risks. “Botox remains the most popular non-surgical rejuvenation treatment in New Zealand and globally,” explains FaceWork’s Dr Teresa Cattin. Dr Cattin is one of the country’s most experienced cosmetic physicians with over 20 years experience and is one of only two national trainers in Botox and Juvederm, teaching other doctors throughout NZ, Australia and Asia-Pacific for over 15 years. “The more experienced a practitioner is, the more aware they are that Botox can actually be used all over the face and neck and can do much more than just soften frown lines,” she adds.


What is Botox? According to FaceWorks, Botox is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance. The active ingredient in Botox treatment is derived from bacteria in much the same way penicillin is derived from mould. It is manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions and is a prescription-only medicine and treatment is only available from a qualified medical professional. Medically speaking, Botox is extremely safe and is a very common procedure that is rigorously tested and controlled. To harm anyone it would take a very large amount of Botox - over 3000 units to cause severe damage - when typically, Botox injections are under 100 units. While Botox is technically a toxin, it is used in minuscule, diluted dosages and should only ever be administered by professional, trained providers. This is key to ensuring you not only avoid danger but also receive the results you desire. And so, is Botox really safe? When administered correctly, by a professional, Botox has minimal risks and can be a great noninvasive way to treat frown lines and other issues. However, be warned, cheap purchases online, or with non-certified technicians may cost you more in the long run.

Like mother, like daughter

Leigh Cattin and Dr Teresa Cattin

Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber. Melanie Griffin and Dakota Johnson. Georgia May Jagger and Jerry Hall. The line-up of famous mother/daughter duos sharing not only genes but also careers is proof that mother does indeed know best.


t’s a sentiment that could well be applied to top cosmetic physician Dr Teresa Cattin and her daughter Leigh. Highly trained in the use of Botox® and cosmetic fillers, Teresa has almost 20 years’ experience in cosmetic medicine, is a past President of the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine and is regularly invited to speak at international conferences. Leigh, a trained nurse, is now in her third year of medical training and is planning to follow in her mother’s footsteps with a career in family medicine and appearance medicine. Both of them work at Teresa’s highly regarded clinic FaceWorks, on Auckland’s Apollo Drive. Leigh, who has a particular interest in Botox® and lip enhancements for younger patients, has already developed her own loyal following.


“With younger patients, it’s not about softening age-related changes on the face, but about carefully enhancing the client’s natural beauty,” the 29-year-old says. “Sometimes a lip may be 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.” Says Teresa: “There is increasing evidence that tiny amounts of Botox® 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 actually starts at a younger age. Botox® controls the development of these family traits beautifully.” Both women are passionate about the French approach to appearance medicine known as La French Touche. The French believe very small amounts of Botox® should be used on carefully selected areas of the face to soften and refresh rather than significantly change facial features. The results are naturally beautiful. To find out more about FaceWorks – including its affordable eponymous skincare range, a firm favourite with beauty editors – visit faceworks.co.nz or phone (09) 486 5540. The clinic is located at D/43 Apollo Drive, Mairangi Bay. Open Tuesday to Friday.

Skin Centre

The Skin Centre in Auckland is winning kudos for its Blepharoplasty (EyelidLifts), and Fraxel Dual Laser technology work which makes skin young and beautiful again, and in research is shown to remove pre-cancerous growths. Look Younger and More Energetic Our eyes say a lot about us. When our eyelids are heavy and baggy they unfairly broadcast to everyone that you are tired and old, even if you feel neither! “Blepharoplasty helps restore a more energetic and youthful appearance,” says Skin Centre Specialist, Dr Paul Salmon. “The results are always lovely.” Eyelid-Lift or Blepharoplasty not only corrects sagging eyelids, removes fatty pouches from beneath your eyes, and removes excess skin from upper eyelids, but it can also correct vision problems caused by drooping upper lids. Every face looks refreshed when excess skin is removed from around the eyes. Best of all, a Blepharoplasty requires only a short recovery period. The Eyelid-Lift procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and takes between one and two hours depending on whether the brow also requires rejuvenation. Fine incisions are made in the eyelid creases to remove excess skin and treat bulges. After surgery the area around the eye may be swollen for about four days and there may be some bruising, especially after a lower lid Blepharoplasty. Normally, you’ll be able to wear make-up again five days after surgery. After only a few weeks, the fine hair-line scars which follow the eyelid’s natural contour will already be difficult to see, and people will wonder why you have a fresher, more youthful appearance. Dr Paul Salmon has performed Eyelid-Lifts for 20 years, rejuvenating more than 1000 eyelids. He also lectures on eyelid surgery in New Zealand, Australia and the USA. Check with your health insurer because in some cases (where heavy eyelids restrict your vision) this procedure may be covered.


Revolutionary Fraxel® Dual Laser Kiwis and Australians in Europe and America stand out in a crowd as the weather-beaten ones. Cute childhood freckles have often become brown, scaly blotches, the unsightly stigmata of sun damage. “For many years chemical peels were the only treatment for this skin deterioration,” says Dr Salmon. “The triad of pre-cancerous spots, brown lentigo blotches and broken capillaries was treated with chemical peels until the mid-1990s when ablative laser re-surfacing technology became available. The problem with these treatments was the two to three week period of downtime while the skin healed, and managing the healing process which often made it difficult for client’s busy lives. Three years ago this type of treatment was revolutionised with the development of fractional resurfacing technologies.” Instead of removing the entire skin surface, fractional lasers remove a percentage of the surface. The tiny holes this generates heal over within 24 hours so recovery is quicker with less opportunity for infection. As the deeper skin remodels around the lasered area over the following months new collagen is formed, tightening the skin and diminishing wrinkles and blotches. The lower the percentage of skin treated, the quicker the recovery but also the greater the number of treatments required to completely replace old original skin with new skin.

“We aim for three treatments to achieve glowing new skin,” says Dr Salmon. “Each treatment requires three to four days downtime in which you can expect a little blotchiness and swelling on Day One which darkens and flakes off over the next four days, a bit like healing sunburn. The amazing thing about Fraxel treatment is the ability to turn back the clock without the need for invasive surgery.” Because the technology is so precise, fractionated laser treatment can also be used for delicate areas such as skin on the neck, chest and hands. Fraxel technology is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles (crow’s feet and brow lines); Surface scarring including acne; Pigmentation (minimising age spots); Sun damage; and Actinic Keratosis (AK), a common pre-cancerous skin condition. The Skin Centre also offers skilled skin consultations, diagnosis and treatment of Melanoma and other skin cancers, and provides Mohs surgery in Auckland. Fraxel® Dual Laser treatments and Blepharoplasty (Eyelid-Lifts) are available at the Skin Centre, Unit GD 95 Ascot Avenue, Ascot Office Park, Remuera, Auckland, and 171 Cameron Road, Tauranga.

Fractional CO2 Laser: Caci’s most advanced skin treatment Fractional CO2 Laser is our ultimate skin correcting treatment for treating tone and texture, plus reducing lines and wrinkles. HOW DOES FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER WORK? The laser works by penetrating the deeper layers of the skin, which triggers the skin’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. As a result, your skin rejuvenates and grows back stronger, firmer, smoother and more refreshed. HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LASER SKIN TREATMENTS? Unlike other lasers, the Fractional CO2 Laser penetrates the deeper layers of the skin. Combining heat and CO2 maximises the treatment, providing better, and more long lasting results. WHAT CONCERNS DOES IT TREAT? •

Lines & wrinkles

Uneven skin tone

Advanced sun damage


DOES IT HURT? It’s our priority to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during all treatments. Small areas of the skin are treated at a time; therefore, it is more comfortable than other laser treatments. Most clients are happy to have the treatment with a light topical anaesthetic.

WHAT DOWNTIME IS INVOLVED? As the treatment is done in small patches, you will notice afterwards that you have a pattern of evenly spaced dots in the treatment area. You’ll be given aftercare product to apply to protect and help the healing process. Following the treatment, you can expect some redness and slight swelling. This is normal and temporary. You will be given thorough instructions and information to take home, so you know what to expect. It’s very important to stay out of the sun in the days following your treatment, if you need to go outside, apply plenty of sunblock, and throw on some sunglasses and a hat. HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED? For best results, we recommend a course of treatments. With Caci’s Skin Health plan; appointments are scheduled for you over the course of a year, you will have 4 treatments, plus a combination of conditioning skin treatments. On a Caci treatment plan you can choose to pay using one of our interest free payment options. To learn more book in a free consultation at your nearest Caci clinic: caci.co.nz 61

Dr Sam Dunn - My Story While I took a while to find my niche in the world of medicine, having found it I truly relish each day where I have the opportunity to positively influence the lives of my patients.


lichéd as it sounds, I always dreamed of being a Doctor to follow in the footsteps of my beloved Poppa, Dr Pat Dunn, a leading Remuera Obstetrician; so under the guidance and support of my Uncle, Mr. John Dunn a well known Auckland based Laparoscopic Surgeon, I embarked on my medical career. As a third year medical student in Dunedin I longed for mild winters and the end of exams. I was impatient to wear that stethoscope and be in the front line helping real patients. As restlessness set in, my Uncle John paid a visit and gave me a pep talk I will never forget. He told me that becoming a Doctor is hard work but it pays off because you get to do something that serves people and it is a privilege to practice medicine. My postgraduate years were spent working in Emergency Departments where I thrived on the teamwork and rewards of helping those in extreme need. After 5yrs of working very long


days it was time for a change of pace and so began the search for my ultimate niche in medicine. In 2007 I started at Palm Clinic one of NZ’s longest standing Clinics for the treatment of Varicose Veins, Liposuction and Cosmetic Medicine. Here I had the fortune of working with Dr John Barrett a skilled Liposuction, Varicose Vein and Cosmetic Medicine Physician. Suddenly a whole new world opened up before me and I knew I had found my place in medicine. Fast forward to 2015, as Dr John Barrett headed towards retirement the opportunity arose for me to buy Palm Clinic and in December 2015 I, along with Mr. John Dunn bought Palm Clinic. To now be leading Palm Clinic into the future is exciting. Providing advanced treatments using the latest technology and techniques helps our patients feel more positive about themselves and you can’t have a better day at work than that!

THE SECRET TO LOOKING YOUR BEST Fine lines. Wrinkles. Pigmentation. Loss of Volume. Palm Clinic know all about the tell-tale signs of aging. As one of the longest standing cosmetic medicine clinics in New Zealand Palm Clinic has an outstanding reputation for natural looking results. Their experienced clinicians work with the latest cosmetic enhancement techniques for personalised treatment plans. The secret is here. Naturally fresh skin.

The story behind Cosmetic Solutions, Dianna Morgan and Kirsty Fitzgerald Meet Dianna Morgan and Kirsty Fitzgerald from Cosmetic Solutions, the dream team of the Cosmetic Appearance industry in New Zealand. Dianna and Kirsty first met 11 years ago when Dianna was working for Allergan the creators of Botox and Juvederm, and Kirsty had just recently started her role as a cosmetic appearance nurse for Caci Ponsonby.


Now after having acquired a profound amount of knowledge and experience in their careers, Dianna and Kirsty have joined forces at Cosmetic Solutions. Together the duo provide New Zealanders with some of the most up to date non-surgical procedures in the appearance medicine industry and this is how they got there: Dianna is a Registered Nurse with over 25 years experience as a healthcare professional. She has worked in the Cosmetic Industry for 14 years and has been recognised for her level of expertise by multiple leaders within the Cosmetic Industry. Her career has involved working with Allergan where she learnt her injecting techniques from multiple, internationally renowned injectors for over 6 years, and during this time Dianna was also teaching Doctors and Nurses the art of injecting BOTOX® and dermal fillers. This period of time is also when Dianna and Kirsty first crossed paths and formed a strong friendship. Dianna later founded Cosmetic Solutions expanding her reputation in Auckland as one of the best appearance medicine nurses in the industry and continues to pursue further experience and education in the latest Cosmetic Appearance techniques available. Her most recent achievement was being first in New Zealand to complete a course at the prestigious Esteem Institute of Cosmetic Appearance in the Gold Coast, Australia. Kirsty’s career as a Cosmetic Appearance Nurse began at Caci Ponsonby after having previously worked as an intensive/cardiac care and emergency nurse for 16 years. From a young age, Kirsty knew that she wanted to be a nurse and took great inspiration from her grandfather Dr Tom Plunkett, one of New Zealand’s most distinguished obstetrician and gynecologists whose legacy is the Plunkett Ward at National Women’s Hospital. Before joining Dianna at Cosmetic Solutions, Kirsty worked with Caci Ponsonby for 11.5 years where she became an expert in a select amount of treatments and services offered at Caci, including performing the collagen induction skin corrective therapies of Dermal Rolling Fractional CO2 Laser, and VPL laser treatments for hair removal and photo rejuvenation and many other non-surgical procedures. Keen for a change and the opportunity to offer more tailored services and treatments to suit her clients wants and needs, Kirsty joined Dianna at Cosmetic Solutions. However, when it comes to her career Kirsty’s biggest passion is her clients, as she enjoys learning about who her clients are and watching their confidence grow with each treatment. Kirsty’s arrival to Cosmetic Solutions has been highly praised by the wider community of Auckland and her services were quick to be in high demand. Together, Dianna and Kirsty offer a range of highly advanced non-surgical treatments and pride themselves in empowering all clients with knowledge about any treatments before proceeding with them. A free and thorough consultation is offered to address every client’s needs ensuring the techniques and treatments that are offered suit their client’s individual needs. Cosmetic Solutions is passionate about obtaining natural, undetectable results and dedicated to offering the very best service and outcomes to each of their clients because when it comes down to it, their health and happiness comes first.

industry. They are the preference of choice to many high calibre clients and even TV presenters who frequently use their products and services. Perfect for not only woman, but men as well, Forever Shine Beauty Therapy has a a number of specialised treatments that stand head and shoulders above the rest of their competitors. These treatments include laser hair removal, green peel face mask, lash lifting, weight loss treatments and anti-aging treatment. Summer is rapidly approaching, so our thoughts turn to sunny beach trips, pool parties, shorter skirts and sun-kissed skin. Organic waxing from the award-winning Forever Shine Beauty Therapy in Auckland should be the first step in regaining silky smooth skin before summer hits. With the warmer months upon us, we can ditch the thick winter coats and start wearing our lighter spring wardrobes. However, after a long winter our skin can look less than desirable. Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal and can be used for removing hair from virtually any part of the body. Not only is affordable and quick option for hair removal, it also comes with a number of great benefits for your skin. After waxing the skin becomes silky smooth this is because waxing removes dry and dead skin cells along with the unwanted hair, thus improves the skin texture and makes it more beautiful. “Waxing has the benefit of irritation free hair removal,” comments Forever Shine Beauty Therapy owner Ronita. Waxing rarely causes any skin irritation or allergy. No harsh chemicals are present in wax so the skin is saved from their damaging effect. “After waxing. hair growth is very slow, taking at least three to four weeks to grow back,” says Ronita. So you can go for that holiday on the beach or embrace the new spring weather with smooth and glowing skin without having to worry about unsightly body hair showing up. Unlike the ugly stubble as seen in just a day after shaving which can often leave your skin feeling rough and abrasive, the hair that grows after waxing is finer and softer. Forever Shine Beauty Therapy offers Eyebrow, lip, chip, face, full arm, half arm, full leg, half leg, under arm, bikini, extended bikini, full Brazilian, full bikini and Hollywood waxing. “Our professional team of therapists aim to constantly ensure that you remain relaxed, comfortable and totally satisfied with the overall result at every visit,” adds Ronita. No matter what your beauty or skin care needs are, Forever Shine Beauty Therapy is the obvious choice for all beauty and skin treatments. The award-winning treatments are unbeatable, find out for yourself!

Beauty and the Bump Our Top Tips for a Healthy & Happy Pregnancy


regnancy is a unique time in a woman’s life. Whilst it can be beautiful, it also comes with it’s challenges. Every person, and therefore every pregnancy, is different but here are our top tips for thriving, not just surviving, during those nine months.

Prenatal Vitamins There are a range of vitamins and supplements on the market that help us look and feel our best. Prenatal vitamins are key during the early stages of your pregnancy, when your baby’s neural cord, which becomes the brain and spinal cord, is developing. Nutrients such as folic acid, calcium, and iron, are essential.

Exercise Staying healthy becomes more of a priority when you are expecting. Of course, it is just as important not to do overdo it but regular exercise can help you maintain your weight, improve circulation, boost your mood, and help you sleep better.

Treat Yourself Being pregnant can sometimes feel like a chore, but it’s nothing compared to being a parents! Indulge yourself while you can in that extra long lunch by yourself, splurge on a massage or facial or take time out to spend an evening with friends. Remember, a relaxed mum is a relaxed baby.

Linden Leaves

enriching your body with ingredients good enough to eat


here are many decisions to make in life, and your bodies health and wellbeing should be of the highest interest, however, there is one organ that many overlook when it comes to our health and that’s our skin. What you put on your skin is just as important as what your body consumes from within, which is why when it comes down to choosing which skincare products you invest in, the most natural ones are the way to go. One brand that prides themselves on using pure, natural ingredients that are almost good enough to eat, is Linden Leaves. With information available at the tip of our fingers, we are now more cautious of choosing brands that reflect our lifestyle and values. This means that when we do find a brand that matches those values, it’s important, it’s true to its label. The holistic approach to skincare has become increasingly popular over the years, and many products claim to be pure, natural and organic, but how do you know which of these brands is true to their word? The answer is to look for brands that are accredited by NATRUE, a world leader in natural and organic product certification; Linden Leaves is one of the few New Zealand brands accredited by NATRUE.

Linden Leaves is suitable for all skin types and is nationally recognised for its kindness to sensitive skin and ability to prevent and soothe eczema and allergies. You’ll also be pleased to know that many of Linden Leaves products are made by hand in Christchurch, ensuring every product is made with care and to the highest quality.

Dr Iona Weir

Revolutionary Results Eczema, Acne and Wrinkles.


t last three special Atopis products are publically available through an online store. These include a relief cream for sufferers of painful and itchy skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis; one for the symptoms of acne; plus an anti-aging cream which relieves dryness and irritation to make skin look and feel younger. Atopis is a revolutionary approach. All three Atopis products are unique in the market and based on Dr Iona Weir’s plant cell biology research on apoptosis, the natural process of programmed cell death in humans and plants. Apoptosis helps keep plants healthy under attack from pests, environmental stress, and aging. In humans, apoptosis is critical to immune function and aging. Dr Weir’s research proved cell death in plants is reversible. Cell death is not reversible in humans but by studying the process, and with her deep knowledge of the immune system she was able to mimic nature and create a wholly natural product which fools the body’s immune response into preventing eczema, premature ageing, and inflammation. She graduated from Canterbury University with a BSc and MSc, going on to study for her PhD in biological sciences through Auckland University at Auckland Medical School. The PhD took 92

three years and when she travelled to Italy to present her research at conference, she was awarded the Outstanding PhD Award by the International Society of Cytology. Dr Weir has also studied immunology. The three products derived from this research, Atopis Acne cream, Atopis Eczema cream and Atopis Anti-aging cream, are all made from entirely natural products including probiotics, and are devoid of fillers. Even the water component isn’t water. It’s coconut water, so the nutrients getting to your skin are densely potent, and so natural you could eat them. To test it, Dr Weir has tasted it! She says the taste is not unpleasant but she wanted to make sure that if a baby got some on their fingers it would be perfectly harmless. Part of Dr Weir’s drive for this research came from her own experience of early menopause at forty-two. Appalled by the resulting degeneration of her skin, she told herself that she knew all the research, and why didn’t she just make a cream for herself utilising plant hormones. The plant hormones replaced the loss of oestrogen in the skin and regenerated it in a perfect replica of nature’s own reactions. Essentially Atopis creams convince the immune system to repair affected areas. Atopis Acne cream, usually thought of as a product for teenagers, works very well for the spots which often afflict menopausal and peri-menopausal women. Rather than drying the skin out, it restores hormones to the skin, regulating sebum glands so they don’t overproduce, and leaves the skin looking and feeling soft and nourished while dealing effectively with spots and pimples. It also works in the skin to prevent further outbreaks. Atopis creams contain Myriphytase extract, which is the break-through ingredient delivering almost magical relief from eczema, psoriasis and acne. The creams target all the symptoms of eczema, acne and ageing, rather than isolating one or two. “Eczema and other immune skin disorders are a combination of not just immune but also wound healing, apoptosis and microbial recognition factors. I have taken a universal rather than a single parameter approach. Every single component has been meticulously arranged to work in synergy in restoring normal skin function, and every reaction is based on twenty years of research,” Dr Weir says. “It’s been a long journey of research, clinical trials and testing,” she said, “but it’s all been worth it when you listen to people who have searched a long time to find something that finally delivers relief from their skin complaints. The difference with Atopis is that it actually works and has clinical evidence to back it.” Dr Iona Weir has twenty-five years research and development experience, including twelve years in the government research sector, with thirty international publications, and six patents granted. She was Chief Scientific Officer overseeing the development, clinical trials and launch of Phloe – now NZ’s top over-the-counter gastrointestinal health product. She also specialises in design and management of clinical trials and international regulatory controls.



Pure health and beauty with Collagen The finest in the world.


outed as the next big thing in beauty and antiaging, collagen supplements are having a moment. Originating in Asia - where women are known for their obsession with creating perfect complexions - collagen powders and capsules are becoming increasingly popular for those looking to turn back the hands of time. In Japan and Korea, picking up a collagen smoothie or juice on your way to work is as commonplace as sipping a flat white. But does ingestible collagen really work? As we age, our natural collagen levels decline, causing sagging skin, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging. Taking collagen as a supplement can give a powerful boost to your natural collagen stores - but only if taken in the correct form and dosage. The molecules in the collagen powder must be small enough to be absorbed and utilised by the body. Peptide collagen, also known as super collagen, is created in Japan and heralded as the world’s finest collagen powder manfactured. Luci Firth, director of New Zealand-based company Adashiko Collagen, says quality makes all the difference. “What a lot of consumers don’t realise is that you must be taking quite a high daily dose (five grams) to get results and that the actual collagen product has to have a low molecular weight of 3000 Daltons or less. Our peptide collagen is highly absorbable and can be mixed with food and drinks with no taste or odour. We’ve seen some remarkable results among our customers. I believe collagen has huge potential, not just for aging but general wellbeing and health.”

Why Adashiko?

Adashiko Collagen is manufactured in Japan, the global leader in Collagen. Japanese Collagen - known as Super Collagen, it is produced to the highest possible quality and is the finest in the world. Adashiko Collagen works from the inside out promoting healthy ageing. It’s a highly effective way of achieving full-body wellness, strength, beautiful glowing skin, stronger nails and hair, and increased joint mobility.


How it works?

Peptide Collagen is hydrolysed to reduce its molecular weight to 1/60th of the size of the original molecule. After being ingested, it is properly absorbed into the bloodstream and carried to cells in the body, where it sends a signal that stimulates fibroblast and cartilage cells to promote the formation of new collagen.

What are the benefits of peptide collagen?

• Replenishes and boosts collagen levels in the body. • Provides multidimensional support for full body health, strength and elasticity. • Supports joints, ligaments, and cartilage for greater mobility and flexibility. • Creates firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin. • Reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation. • Strengthens and fortifies hair, skin, and nails. • Encourages recovery after sport, exercise, injury, and surgery. • Supports lean muscle mass and weight loss due to its satiating effect. • Promotes healthy digestion and heals the gut lining.

Adashiko Pure is a super supplement that replenishes and boosts natural Collagen production, and repairs and strengthens from the inside out to promote wellbeing and healthy ageing.

Authentic products, with great ingredients

I want to help women feel good about themselves without having to spend a fortune doing it.


nce the face of a well known women’s beauty and health brand, Suzy Heazlewood knows all too well how lack of confidence and self esteem can pull you down. She appeared regularly on our TV screens for many years until an online bullying campaign came out of nowhere. ‘I was being hit from every angle, both online and in public and found myself sinking into depression and anxiety, completely losing my confidence. It got so bad that I didn’t want to go out in public and contemplated suicide. After taking some time out to recover, I realised that I could actually use what I’d been through to help other women. That’s how Suzy H Skin Nutrition and Bringing Back the Sistahood was born, a skincare range to help women feel good about themselves and a platform for women to share their voice to raise other women up, rather than tear them down. ‘It was important to me to build a community of women helping each other and also to produce authentic products with great ingredients that would allow women to appreciate what they see in the mirror. I want to help women feel good about themselves without having to spend a fortune doing it. And we have achieved that – there’s no fancy packaging or marketing but we do have a very good product - it’s medical grade skincare, full of topical peptides, vitamins and glycolics, without the hefty price tag and it works! 100

This year Suzy has taken on two Ambassadors for Suzy H... ‘Because I’m a kiwi and Suzy H is handcrafted in a lab on the Gold Coast I call myself ‘Transtasminal,’ so having an ambassador for both countries was important to me, ‘ says Suzy. New Zealander Ivanka Zonich has been in media advertising for 20 plus years ....in 2003 she became the Timesaver Traffic girl and is now the number one traffic reader for Newstalk ZB. She is very driven but is also passionate about the Suzy H Brand and message. Australian Lara Swain was a very dear friend of the late Charlotte Dawson and is the Co-Founder of Charlotte’s Law, a law designed to make cyber bullying a criminal offence in Australia. Suzy and Lara met through Charlotte while she was still alive and believe their connection was meant to be. Lara also loves the results she has using Suzy H and stands beside the Sistahood/ Anti-bullying message. Both women are firm friends of Suzy’s, who says, ‘In the past I’ve held off having an ambassador for the range as I am very discerning as to who I have onboard and I was trying to do it all myself...but taking on these two gorgeous women has been wonderful.’



Introducing New Radiance Rosehip & Friends by Evolu, a celebration of the beauty in friendship – literally!


hile the benefits of rosehip oil on the skin have certainly not been kept a secret, it is the renowned botanical blending of Evolu which sets the new facial oil aside from the rest.

either simply by itself, or as an ideal alternative to chemical based primers under make-up. And while it is no easy feat to capture and concentrate the scents of nature that is exactly what Kazsa has done with her newest oil. The delightful fragrance adds both a positive energy and fresh feel when applied. Both your skin and your senses will thank you, as this naturally fragranced and revolutionary complex oil mix takes you to a new world of freshness and radiance with every wear.

ahn and Karen are friends from Auckland who discovered when they met in 2013 that they had a lot in common, like an unhealthy obsession with all things natural, beauty and wellness related. They both suffered from a long list of allergies whether they consumed them or put them on their skin and it was affecting them inside and out so they started making their own remedies to treat their allergies and other issues like flushed skin, acne breakouts and eczema.

We aim to make products that help you not only look better but feel better so we incorporate aromatherapy to soothe the mind body and soul.” All of the products are environmentally friendly, vegan, crueltyfree, all that good stuff while maintaining a sense of humour, sometimes the natural beauty world can take itself too seriously, that isn’t these girls style!

Their range includes: Calm the Face Down! Moisturiser Handle your day like a boss: this little wonder slays against dry skin and redness and will leave you cool, calm and collected.

Discover the fat-burning power of TriLipo Med Finesse Face and Body Clinic in Remuera has been a leader in cellulite treatments for 16 years. Owner and beauty specialist, Sue Crake, is delighted to introduce the latest breakthrough in cellulite treatments. Facial skin tightening - after 5 treatments


How does TriLipo Med work?


Cellulite and fat reduction - after 4 treatments

The TriLipo Med targets fat cells with radiofrequency energy, which penetrates the epidermis and dermis of the skin, heating it to 40 – 42 degrees Celsius. The heat generated is strong enough to cause thermal damage to the surrounding fat tissue and connective tissue, thus “bursting” the fat cells and releasing liquid fat into the circulation. It also treats cellulite by breaking down the deeper subcutaneous fat within connective tissue. “TriLipo Med is very exciting as it’s the only device with dynamic muscle activation. This causes the muscles to contract, which pushes and massages the released fat into the lymphatic system,” explains Sue. “The treatment eliminates fat from the body, contouring the treated area as well as toning the muscle.” The treatment also activates fibroblasts to produce more collagen, which in turn tightens and smoothes the skin, giving a younger appearance. This effect continues to treat skin even after the treatment is finished. The skin resurfacing application also helps treat acne scarring, stretch marks and pigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone. Unlike other body contouring devices, TriLipo med requires no exercise immediately after the treatment, but a healthy diet and regular exercise will help maintain treatment results.

What to expect?




he TriLipo Med, produced by Pollogen, helps achieve smoother contours and reshaped bodies at a fraction of the cost and without the risks or complications of invasive surgery. Finesse Face and Body Clinic is the first clinic in New Zealand to have acquired the breakthrough technology. Approved by the FDA, this treatment method can eliminate fat cells from most parts of the body, whether it be arms, back, buttocks, hips and thighs, as well as neck and face. The system has two platforms; one for fat reduction and one for skin resurfacing. 108

• Treatment is fast – around 20-30 minutes per area. • You will experience some heat and redness, but treatment is not painful. • Some results and smoothing are visible immediately after the first treatment. • On average 4-8 treatments are required per area. • Maintenance treatments – 1 per area every 4 months recommended. • Body treatments $200 - $250 per body area – quote on consultation. • Face and neck treatment (combined) $250 – quote on consultation.

Highest quality, Exceptional Service It’s our expertise and your Results.


ast year’s edition of The Beauty Book celebrated the launch of The Beauty Clinic, but this year we celebrate its success. Open now for just over eighteen months, both the Meadowbank and Botany based clinics continue to gather an ever-increasing number of satisfied and loyal clientele. We put it down to owner-operator Lisa Travis’ results-driven approach to ensure every individual customer receives the care and treatment for their specific desires. With over 25 years’ experience in the beauty business behind her, Lisa was more than aware of what was missing in the industry and finally in April of 2016, initiated the opening of her own business in a bid to fill those gaps. With the understanding that each customer is unique, at The Beauty Clinic, consultation is key in attaining the best results. Lisa and her exceptional team of therapists take care to thoroughly consult each client based on their own particular needs before any beauty treatment takes place. This is so important that The Beauty Clinic offers complimentary consultations, ensuring a customised and more accurate course, attaining the best results for each individual. In addition to her compassionate and dedicated staff, Lisa takes pride in using only the highest quality products and range of equipment. One key point of difference is the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) machine – the EFB beauté Adena IPL – used for hair removal as well as for vascular and red vein skin treatments. It is the only IPL machine able to treat Blonde/White & Red hairs, so if you haven’t been suitable for IPL hair removal before, The Beauty Clinic can offer you a solution.


“There is so much competition in the Beauty Industry in New Zealand and people have so much choice as to where they can receive their treatments, that at The Beauty Clinic we need to stand out by offering a consistently high level of service & results. We like to reward our clients for choosing us, so every dollar that is spent earns a point. These are then turned into vouchers that can be used on additional treatments”. On visiting The Beauty Clinic, it is clear that passion sits above profit and Lisa Travis goes the extra mile in employing the best staff, as well as the best machinery and skincare products to ensure the best results. “Results is my favourite word, I am passionate about changing people’s lives so they feel more confident. That may simply be from a fabulous set of brows, to pigmentation & wrinkle reduction and the ability to manage and reduce acne. All a little bit life changing in their own ways”. This rare passion for craft is seen in very few places in what is now such a vastly spanning industry. The combination of both quality and care truly make The Beauty Clinic the place to go. Meadowbank clinic open Monday-Saturday from 10am. Botany clinic open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am. Both clinics have late nights Tuesday & Thursday until 8pm

Future Proof Your Skin

For the last 26 years, Environ has been at the forefront of vitamin A innovation, continuously creating world-pioneering products that create real results in our skin.


nviron’s industry leading VITAMIN STEP-UP SYSTEM™ is designed to help skin become gradually more comfortable with increased levels of vitamin A, antioxidants and peptides that keep skin looking healthy and beautiful for life. Dr Des Fernandes, Environ Founder and Scientific Director, talks about the latest powerhouse additions to the Environ stable. “As an aesthetic plastic surgeon I realised that for the most convincing rejuvenation one has to have the youngest looking skin, which is why I originally researched the effects of vitamin A, antioxidants and eventually peptides in the Environ Skin Care range. To get the most compelling visual changes one then needs to enhance the activity of these amazing ingredients. That is also why I designed and patented the Ionzyme® DF machine - available at Environ with trained therapists. This machine combines the powers of Iontophoresis and Low Frequency Sonophoresis (LFS), to give changes in appearance that match or are better than many complex machines using lasers and heat. LFS is the most effective and efficient way of safely enhancing penetration through the skin barrier with only short exposure times. Don’t confuse LFS with Ultrasound devices which use a very different, less effective quality of sound. I believe that the DF Machine Ionzyme Facial is the best facial in the world and I am happy to hear that impartial judges agree with me. Unfortunately, not everyone has time for salon treatments so I started developing a manual home-use device that could 116

still achieve excellent results. The new Electro-Sonic DF Mobile Skincare Device is the culmination of research and development over the past 10 years and is easy and convenient to use. Since the beginning, I have used it intensively on myself to best understand how to use it to get the best results. To explain how it works, the dual electro-sonic technology of the DF Mobile Device helps to (1) stimulate the skin and create tiny cavitations through low frequency sonophoresis (sound waves) and (2) deliver more essentials nutrients to where the skin needs them most by ionizing active molecules and diffusing them into the skin through pulsed iontophoresis (electric current). The following areas/concerns can be targeted with the DF Mobile: frown lines on forehead and or between eyebrows; smile lines and fine wrinkles around the eyes; upper lip lines; hyper-pigmented marks from sun damage; double chin and also minor scars. By combining this device with your prescribed Environ skincare routine products, you are able to maximize the benefits of the Environ Professional Facial Treatments at home. I always use it in combination with my Cosmetic Roll-CIT®. It combines versatile programs of Iontophoresis and/or LFS and I recommend Program 1 as the basic treatment schedule. I use the device by holding the probe stationary for a minimum of one “beep” in each area and for even better results 2, 3 or even 4 ‘beeps’ – depending on how much time I have. When I have completed the segment of skin I am treating, I spend about 2 to 3 ‘beeps’ massaging the remnants of these wonderful products into the skin. When combined with the Environ Peptide Enriched Frown Serum it achieves virtually impassive forehead and frown muscles and a really intensive treatment of four “beeps” per stationary area can make impressive changes in 24 hours. It’s perfect for someone with ‘bunny lines’ on the nose or excessive smile lines at the sides of the eyes. Noticeable benefits can also be gained from using it in combination with the HA Intensive Hydrating Serum (which contains Hyaluronic Acid Solution in a very high concentration) and the new Tri-Peptide Complex+ Avance Elixir. You can travel anywhere with the Electro-Sonic DF Mobile Skincare Device to keep ‘future-proofing’ your skin and stay looking the best you can be.”


ELECTRO-SONIC A revolutionary hand-held device, creating future beautiful skin.

ENVIRON DF MOBILE Skincare Device The Environ DF Mobile device helps to stimulate the skin to allow for significantly higher concentrations of active ingredients to get to where the skin needs them the most, targeting the following areas/concerns: Frown lines on forehead/ between eyebrows Smile lines and fine wrinkles around eyes Upper lip lines Hyper-pigmented marks from sun damage Minor scars Double chin For even better results, use in conjunction with Cosmetic RollCITÂŽ and Focus Care Serums; Tri-Peptide Complex Avance Elixir, HA Intensive Hydrating Serum and/or Peptide Enriched Frown Serum

Flawless Brows Emma Grundy

Emma Grundy is passionate about eyebrows. “I’m just doodling eyebrow shapes all the time,” she laughs.


Emma Grundy

er own brows are neatly trimmed and beautifully shaped, framing her sparkling eyes. Emma is a cosmetic tattooist and runs her practice, Flawless Brows NZ, in Remuera. “There’s a big difference between tattooing, as most people know it, and what we do,” says Emma. She explains: “Cosmetic tattooing is semi-permanent make-up. It’s a pigment deposited into the skin. It lasts for a year or two. So it’s quite different from a normal tattoo, which uses ink and is permanent. Fashions change,” says Emma. “It’s important that people are aware this will fade.” The pigment is applied to the eyebrow through micro incisions with disposable needles, giving a feathered and super natural look - just like hair. “Don’t worry,” Emma laughs, “it’s not very painful. We use a numbing cream and you feel the tiniest of scratches. Some people fall asleep!” Cosmetic tattooing works for people who want a fuller brow. But there’s another aspect which Emma is equally passionate about. “It’s great for people who have scars”, she says “or those who have lost hair through illness, like cancer. It’s really satisfying to give them back some confidence.” Eyebrow tattooing forms the bulk of Emma’s work, but lips are becoming increasingly popular. “It’s just like permanent lipstick,” she grins. “You wake up in the morning and your lips and brows are done. A bit of BB cream and you’re out the door!” Can cosmetic tattooing change the lip shape? “You can give the lips more definition,” Emma says, “but you don’t want to go too far outside the existing lip-line, as this can look unnatural. Our goal is to make things look as natural as possible.” Emma’s clients range from 18 years old to late 70’s. It’s great for older women, she says, who find it hard putting on make-up. The treatment is carried out over two sessions. The first starts from $500 upwards, depending on technique. It includes a consultation, numbing cream and after care. The second session, at a cost of $150.00, is six weeks later when the pigment has settled and the final touches are applied.

Enhancing Beauty Therapy with Kim Ryan (Larsen) at Advanced Derma Care


dvanced Derma Care is a professional company that delivers superior products and technologies, enhancing the results and quality of service provided by beauty therapists, Medispa and appearance medicine to their clients. Eager to find out more about Advanced Derma Care we sat down with the founder, Kim Ryan (Larsen), who shared the story of Advanced Derma Care over a few Q&A’s.

Quality – It’s important that we consistently drive results to the end user while also educating therapists to a new level in skincare treatments and techniques. Every product in our company delivers consistent, high quality results to the client.

What inspired you to start Advanced Derma Care?

Results – All products deliver the desired results for our clients without compromising the integrity of their, or their clients skin.

I have worked 20 years as a beauty therapist and 10 years as a mental health nurse, however for the past 15 years I’ve worked as a business development manager, training manager and sales manager for many brands. After many years in the industry I noticed a gap in the market, where I could further the services of beauty therapy clinics in New Zealand. By April 2017 my husband and I started Advanced Derma Care, where the driving force is to advance beauty therapists in a new level of products they didn’t have access to previously. The beginning of our journey was the scariest thing I’ve ever done. However, now it’s the most rewarding.

What’s Advanced Derma Care’s UPS (Unique Point of Sale)? Our UPS is our mission statement; everything we do comes back to our core values, which are the following: 122

Integrity – We act and perform with integrity from the beginning to the end. We don’t push our products onto clinics or clients but encourage them through education and results.

How can Advanced derma care benefit other businesses? We offer exceptional service through our products, technologies and education to levels of skincare treatments not available in NZ. These products are medically and scientifically proven to improve the user’s skin and include internationally renowned brands such as Mesoestetic, DNA Renewal skincare, and the Lutronic and Skin Remodelling System technologies. Most importantly we work with our clients to grow their business with continuous encouragement, education and backup service 7 days a week.

Air Pollution In New Zealand is Real, and It Is Ageing Us Like UV rays, pollution is an invisible and damaging threat to the skin.


s pollution really an issue in New Zealand? Sadly the answer is yes. We are surrounded by pollution, the most obvious being car fumes, but it doesn’t stop there. Inside the sanctuary of our homes there is dust, pet allergens, pollens, devices, and at work air conditioning and cleaning pollutants play their part. The level of pollution varies throughout the day, by season, geographic location and according to the level of human activity. Studies have shown a link between exposure to air pollution and signs of skin ageing, ranging from hyperpigmentation (dark spots on the skin) and dehydration to a weakened skin structure and increased skin sensitivity. Like UV rays, pollution is an invisible threat. Pollution particles land on the skin and become lodged within the skin’s deeper structure, generating free radicals that trigger inflammation and therefore increased pigmentation – now considered the leading age-marker. According to Emma Hobson, Education Manager of the International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica, the effects of pollution damage on the skin are: 1. Premature skin ageing 2. Increase of age spots 3. Dullness and dehydration 4. Rough, uneven skin texture 5. Skin congestion leading to breakouts


6. Breakdown of the skin’s lipid bilayer (one of the main defence mechanisms of the skin) 7. Accelerated skin ageing through the loss of elasticity and the breakdown of collagen creating fine lines and wrinkles 8. Increased pigmentation by 20% 9. Increased skin sensitivity 10. Increased inflammation leading to ‘Inflammaging’ While we have been thoroughly educated to apply UV sunscreen to help protect us from sun-induced ageing, we now need to add in pollution protection to our daily skincare regime, as this too, is an invisible but equally damaging threat. When you wake up tomorrow, don’t just reach for your sunscreen to protect your skin. Give your skin a little more support by cleansing for just a minute longer with Dermalogica’s PreCleanse Balm, spritzing with a burst of anti-oxidants using the Antioxidant HydraMist, and reinforce the skins barrier with a reparative moisturiser like Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 that is packed with another healthy dose of anti-oxidants!


A Little Bit of Magic Almost too good to be true.


s with most days, I’m running late. However, when I arrive at Newmarket’s S.A.S. Clinic, my tardiness is quickly brushed off. The buzz of the place takes me by surprise, the usual hushed voices of beauty therapists replaced by genuine laughter, that could easily be a conversation between old friends. Every beauty clinic will tell you they offer something different, something new, that will change how you look and feel. Sometimes, it’s almost too good to be true. However, S.A.S. Clinic truly is a one of a kind place, where you can almost believe magic happens. Owner Sam Gent was raised in London, above her mother’s beauty clinic. A well known model in the ‘60’s, she went into beauty therapy after she retired, serving London’s elite. At 16, Sam was a qualified beauty therapist leaving school to pursue a career that lead her all over salons in London. “I love it [beauty therapy] - I was born to do it,” Sam explains to me. After meeting her Kiwi husband, and travelling the world, they ended up in Auckland. Sam purchased S.A.S. Clinic in 1999, however, after moving the whole family to Arrowtown to nurse her mother and “live the dream” in the picturesque South Island, Sam created a beautiful bespoke salon in the heart of Arrowtown - Oddfellows Lodge, sister salon to S.A.S. Clinic. Now, after 16 years, Sam is back at the helm of SAS Clinic, bring her philosophies and strong passion for an ethical approach to the clinic and their loyal clients, including their unique offering, S.A.S. Time. “SAS Time is really ‘trust the therapist time’ - we are all experts at what we do, every single one of us,” explains Sam. “You come in, tell us your maintenance or what you need. We have to book out a certain amount of time to get this done. I’ve found, however, that many beauty therapists aren’t natural salespeople, and struggle to upsell because all-in-all, they do care about people.” And so, S.A.S. Time is a simple price for Sam and her team to do as much as they can in the time they are given. It’s clear, it’s honest, and it’s a professional way to give advice on what treatments may be better for another time. “Many clients don’t even speak to us during this time, they have complete trust,” added Sam, as she gave me a pedicure without telling me the colour, including me in the group of trusting clients. And yet, I become one. After experiencing it first-hand, it truly is something special. Nothing is wrong with you per say, yet you walk out feeling like a different person. “We’re real - and we’re really good at what we do,” adds Sam. Perhaps there really is something magical going on at S.A.S. Clinic and Oddfellows lodge. after all.

Otautahi Tattoo: Specialists in Amazingness


The team are proud to give everyone the same level of service.

he artists at Otautahi Tattoo specialise in traditional, old school and lettering designs and they have a plethora of skills to offer their clients; creating bright and bold colour work, black and grey styles. As well as the traditional, the artists embrace a wide variety of different styles, taking inspiration in Maori and Pacific Island design, Japanese designs and other timeless tattoo styles to create something unique for every individual. They have three studios across New Zealand: Christchurch, Auckland, and Queenstown, all of which have hosted reputable names and created unique pieces of art, giving each studio a lasting reputation in their own right. The humble beginnings of Otautahi starts in Christchurch where the shop and the artists started to gain national and international recognition. But all that came crashing down when tragically they lost their shop in the 2011 earthquake. Only three years after the earthquake, the doors were reopened to their Christchurch Tattoo Studio, moving location to Riccarton Rd. The setup is fresh and unique with a wide open plan layout, six stations and various tattoo artists, both national and international, specialising in their own unique flavors and styles. Recently, Otautahi Christchurch were proud to have members of the winners of the Super Rugby Champions for 2017, the Canterbury Crusaders. Three team members came into the studio, the day after their win, to get their logo tattooed with a trophy - leaving ample space for the next win!

Otautahi Tattoo has become well-known for tourists seeking ways to commemorate their experiences here in New Zealand. For all the studios, this has become a key part in a many a traveller’s New Zealand experience. Christchurch, Auckland, and Queenstown experience this on a regular basis and are well equipped to meet international standards that are expected. Otautahi Tattoo have over 20 full time artists and regular guest artists across New Zealand, with each studio hosting artists that also specialise in their own areas of expertise, some with several such areas of passion. International pop superstar Justin Bieber came to New Zealand earlier this year while on his Purpose World Tour. While in Queenstown, Otautahi tattoo artist Jeremy arranged a private appointment so that he could commemorate his tour, his time in New Zealand, and his new album. During the 2017 British & Irish Lions Tour, Otautahi Tattoo had many fans come through their doors for pieces as a way to celebrate and remember the tour, even a three generation made a visit. An avid fan, father and grandfather came in and were tattooed on the same day. At Otautahi Tattoo, the team have a philosophy of amazingness - for everyone that walks through their doors. Whether it’s Justin Bieber, rugby players, tourists or local kiwis, at Otautahi, the team are proud to give everyone the same level of service so they leave with a piece they love, cherish and represents amazing memories, journeys, family and loved ones.

How much are we really spending on makeup ?


e live in an image conscious culture and beauty is a powerful force. According to Statista, in 2016, the revenue of the US cosmetic industry alone was estimated at about USD$62.46 billion. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Many of these products and treatments can be helpful and convenient for both men and women seeking to look good on the outside, and feel confident facing the challenges of a new day. But how much are we really spending? A 2017 study by online beauty store SkinStore surveyed 3,000 US women between the ages of 16 and 75 on their beauty spending habits and daily routines. It found that the average American woman will spend up to $300,000 on face products alone in her lifetime. That’s just over NZD $436,000 - for just one woman. In New Zealand, there is no current data collected on what we are spending on cosmetics annually. And so, we did our own research at The Beauty Book. Of course, every person is dierent and answers within groups ranged from $20 per year to over $1,000 but here are our results for makeup expenditure alone.

Student $50 to $100 High school students are all very dierent in terms of interest in makeup and buying power. Despite their school socio-economic background, we found most high school students are less likely to wear makeup on a daily basis, opting to wear it on special occasions. The annual school ball was a big spending factor in 16 to 17 year olds, with an average spend of $50 on one night.

While some students preferred more exclusive beauty brands, most tended to buy drugstore brands. This, in combination with wearing less makeup, gave us an approximate of $50 to $100 per year.

Housewife $150 to $200 Most of the housewives we interviewed did not consider cosmetics a top priority in their daily routine. This was mainly due to a lack of time, as children can be a demanding focus. With less use, stay at home mums are less likely to spend as much on makeup. However, most preferred exclusive beauty brands that are likely to last longer with only a few opting for drugstore brands. More expensive taste, coupled with infrequent use, gave us an average of $150 to $200 per year.

Corporate Woman $1000 plus Many of the corporate women we spoke to prioritised their image as a key part of their day-to-day. For this group, they are constantly putting their face out to the world, and looking immaculate can often factor into business dealings. First impressions, meeting high ranking colleagues, and a general high regards for looks. One of our interviewees noted that the right makeup helps boost her confidence, allowing her to make the most out of her day. With regular use, exposure to more exclusive brands and higher buying power, the yearly spend on makeup for such women was upwards of $1,000.

The Magic of Biodynamic Beauty MANY OF US ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY MINDFUL AND SOPHISTICATED WHEN IT COMES TO THE INGREDIENTS WE PUT INTO AND ONTO OUR BODIES. The nutrition hyperawareness of recent times - which has put saturated fat, sugar and gluten on the unwanted list - has seeped into the beauty space. Now we’re looking closely at the ingredients list of our skincare products, aware that what goes onto our skin gets into our systems. Consequently, organic beauty products are gaining ground in the crowded marketplace. And some product ranges go a step further by offering specialised, biodynamic formulations that are not only organic, but in tune with nature. Biodynamic methods date back centuries. They involve the practice and philosophy of using the rhythmic influences of the sun, moon and planets to create a thriving ecosystem. In the skincare world, nobody knows more about biodynamic beauty products than Dr Hauschka. So how do biodynamic principles apply to skincare? Dr Hauschka’s botanic scientists believe that working in tandem with Mother Nature produces the most potent herbs and plants, harvested at their peak, which yields skincare formulations that perform beyond expectations. When we apply this vital and nutrient-rich product directly to our skin, our appearance responds. Celebrities from Kate Moss to Cate Blanchett have bought into the biodynamic trend using products such as Dr Hauschka and say their skin is softened, smoothed and revitalised. Those who use biodynamic products also add that they improve skin conditions by working with the skin to re-establish its natural balance. Dr Hauschka skincare appeals to those seeking an organic and sustainable alternative to conventional antiaging products as well as those sensitive to synthetic ingredients.

Each and every biodynamic ingredient in Dr Hauschka products contributes to the overall effect. As much as possible, Dr Hauschka obtains raw materials from biodynamic or controlled organic and sustainable partnerships around the world. They source organic shea butter from Burkina Faso at 10 times the world market price of non-organic shea butter; their organic castor oil comes from responsible producers in India; and roses are sourced from organic gardens in Ethiopia, Turkey and Afghanistan. Working alongside the World Hunger Organisation, Dr Hauschka’s sourcing team offer support and expertise to around 700 farmers who now farm organic skincare ingredients as an alternative to opium cultivation. There is a growing tribe of consumers who are concerned about issues regarding the origin of products and are prepared to spend extra dollars to make a conscious choice. Choosing healthier skincare products is part of this surge towards a more sustainable and responsible planet. Switching to Dr Hauschka not only looks after the balance in your skin, it supports the balance in your life.


Bernadette Soares

The Changing Face of Beauty In the world of Instagram driven marketing the age old approach to product development and loyal brand building can seem like a far cry.



elebrity endorsed beauty products and fragrances seem to pop up at will, driven by their large followings. You could just about believe that classic marketing approaches are a thing of the past. However, there are businesses that continue to invest in product development, consumer user testing and building up a database of loyal customers is outdated. Brand Value Ltd is one such company who continues to take the timeless route of brand development and marketing. This is successfully mixed with social media to keep up with their growing customer base whilst gaining new consumers. Founded in 2002 by Bernadette Soares, Brand Value Ltd started with a single product. Bernadette wanted to ensure this was the best product before expanding. Now, under the Brand Value umbrella, there are four beauty brands: Natural Glow, bodEze, Radiessence and Pharo Sugaring. The company focuses largely on the export market as that is where Bernadette believes the market potential for her natural and eco-friendly beauty products lie. Brand Value started off with products such as bodEze and Natural Glow in the retail market but soon seen a space in the professional market. Pharo and Radiessence soon followed and there are now trainers across the world. However, the professional salon market has traditionally been an offender for polluting the environment. “For an industry that depicts images of nature and offers natural products to enhance our looks, the beauty industry is a huge offender in depleting our environment,” says Bernadette, a passionate advocate for green beauty. “Think about everything you, as a beauty therapist or salon owner, throw out or the carbon emissions during the production of most beauty products. Then there’s the excessive packaging, printing or the chemicals that form the base of most products and which make their way into our waterways.” Brand Value’s leading brand Pharo makes eco friendly the very essence of the brand. It has revolutionised the hair removal industry by quite literally making waxing a thing of the past. The Pharo sugaring gels are sugar based and contain no solvents or chemicals. Unlike waxing, the products do not require chemicals to clean up and simply wash off in water resulting in no run-off of solvents into our waterways. Moreover, all their plastic packaging can be reused coupled with an active campaign to encourage salons to collect their empty plastic tubes and pots to send back for sterilising and reuse. “The great thing about the beauty industry is we are respected professionals with influence on our clients and customers. By making a conscious effort for the environment our clients will start thinking about their own lives and things they can change for the better,” says Bernadette.

“The hair is the richest ornament of women.� - Martin Luther

A salon experience you won’t get anywhere else Opening a boutique hair salon has always been a dream for Stephanie, and now it’s a reality.


wner and manager of the luxurious salon 1925, Stephanie originally hails from England, where she trained and worked with the industry’s elite. Having been in the hair industry since 2004, she credits her inspiration and drive with having been able to work for a talented and successful salon in the UK. Along with colleagues Megan, senior stylist and makeup artist, and Rachael, beauty therapist, Stephanie runs a well designed and highly reviewed salon that is a little bit different. 1925, as the name suggests, is inspired by the art deco era. Reminiscent of luxurious architecture and interior design and the glamour of 1920’s women, the art deco era is evident in the salon’s style. Invitingly plush chairs and poufs line the salon, with ample mirrors and retro lighting giving the place a certain razzle-dazzle. Stephanie says that, ‘As hair stylists we create amazing shapes, lines and colours. We push boundaries each and every day much like the the days back in the 1920’s.’

With an extensive list of hair services, from balayage to Kerasilk defrizz, 1925 have something for everyone. More of a beauty hub than solely a hair salon, 1925 also offer a range of other beauty services such as hair ups, make up, manicures, women and men’s waxing, and lash tints, to name a few. Rachael, beauty therapist, believes in ‘providing [clients] with the best treatment for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience’. Stephanie and the team have a passion for ‘creating a space where clients and employees feel a sense of belonging each time they walk through the doors’. Hairdressing and beauty therapy is a very personal thing, and the relationship between client and stylist is paramount. Stephanie, Megan and Rachael work very hard to build trust between themselves and each client. Their aim is to build a relationship and create an individualised experience for you, as well as making you feel like a million bucks. It’s not just a haircut - 1925 promise ‘a salon experience you won’t get anywhere else’.

Top Three Tanning Tips By Tash Oakley - St.Tropez Global Ambassador

• For me, it’s crucial to use a body polish the day before I tan. Saying this, as I’m regularly photographed in my Monday Swimwear bikini range, I generally need to have a tan all the time so I do exfoliate regularly anyway so ensure my tan always looks even and natural • Staying moisturised it a big part of making sure your tan lasts. Some people find it a chore, but it really helps prolong a tan. It is an important part of my beauty regime in general, and it really helps make sure my skin is a good canvas ahead of applying tan. I drink a lot of water and moisturise daily – I’ve always taken care of my skin • I think my best tanning tip would be to try different tanning products and find what is right for you. There is something in the St.Tropez range which is right for everyone – whether you want a long lasting tan versus something for one night to fit in with your schedule. Persevere! Keep trying different products until you find the right one for you as it’s a brilliant confidence boost.

“I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.” - Author Unknown

The luxury of excellent care At Cameron + Field Dentists


xcess pain, long hours of waiting, and having little or no idea what is actually being done to your teeth is rapidly becoming a thing of the past thanks to dentists like Dr Robyn Cameron. With more than 30 years’ experience, Dr Cameron believes the starting point for a good relationship with her clients is never forgetting they have autonomy over their own bodies and that ultimately any decisions need to be made by them. “I am genuinely interested in my patients,” Dr Cameron says. “From their jobs to their hobbies, I try to relate to them. My team and I use this information later to best manage the experience and avoid making our patients uncomfortable.” Based on the top floor of Landmark House in Queen Street, Auckland, Cameron + Field Dentist’s focus on giving high quality dental care has resulted in a highly loyal clientele that appreciates the care given and the treatments that are tailored to fit the individual. Dentists don’t always enjoy the best reputation, thanks to the movie industry, and Dr Cameron and her team focus on reinforcing patient confidence. All possible avenues and outcomes are discussed with a patient and the ultimate decision remains with them. Respect for the patient’s wishes and choices are the cornerstone to this thriving practice. “People gravitate towards clinicians who respect their autonomy, and we are motivated to nurture this respect for our clients,” Dr Cameron says. Employing state of the art equipment, the team offers Minimal Intervention Dentistry in order to preserve and maintain as much of the natural tooth structure and tissue as possible while inflicting as little discomfort as possible. For most patients treated by Dr Cameron, time is perhaps the greatest challenge to ensuring they maintain good oral health. In response Cameron + Field ensure they book appointments that allow for appropriate treatment to be carried out during a single session. By encouraging patients to be active in the care they receive as well as to maintain good oral health, Dr Cameron and her team are leading the way in offering high quality, minimal intervention dental care.

Talking Teeth Whitening with Lovelysmiles

Lovelysmiles is the founding member of the The New Zealand Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Association (NZCTWA). Founder K Joshi (JJ) and his team are so confident with its product and system that it offers a 200 per cent money back guarantee.


f your teeth are not whiter then not only will you not pay for the treatment but Lovelysmiles will also give you back the value of the treatment. We sat down with JJ to get his opinion on some of the myths around teeth whitening.

What are common teeth whitening myths? No one can whiten your teeth as it’s like changing your eye colour so don’t be fooled by people promising you so many shades whiter. The clear enamel is what is stained and are removed in the process showing a more even whiter dentin behind it. Every other product known to us that whitens your teeth will cause sensitivity, and possible enamel damage. However, Lovelysmiles has active ingredients that counter any such condition. Therefore, it is a much more comfortable experience - most of our clients sleep during the treatment! Furthermore, ingredients also help strengthen the enamel and hence there is no fear of enamel erosion. This formula of our special whitening gel allows us to do longer treatments and address problem stains like tetracycline fluorosis staining and other problem staining.

Are you finding certain treatments are more popular? Everybody wants whiter teeth and now they can. Studies prove there is 50% more chance to secure a date if one has whiter teeth. Our mid-range packages are more preferable as they give results without breaking the bank. 168

There are a lot of cheap alternatives for teeth whitening, particularly overseas. Are there risks to cutting costs this way? Many people are importing inferior and unapproved product from china which costs them $2 to $3 a patient. Unfortunately, we do not have border control checking product quality, resulting in these providers profiting on patients, sometimes by 1000 per cent. You will find that these products will not give longevity in results let alone be comfortable resulting in a higher long-term cost to the patient. We are the only teeth whitening company that has their gel made in NZ, and according to New Zealand legal standards. It’s this high quality that has allowed us to be welcomed in other countries and recommended by dentists. We are part of the great Kiwi entrepreneurial story and carry our New Zealand trademark with pride.

What is the best part of your job? Knowing that, despite some doubt before the treatment, the results of every customer will be an overwhelming experience for them. Easily the best part of our industry.



Lovelysmiles is the only teeth whitening product and system made in NZ that is sensitivity free, enhances the strength of the enamel as it whitens the teeth and guarantees the results. It is a founding member of the New Zealand Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Association and now a desired teeth whitening service of dentists across the world.

Choose nakd Luxury Artesian Water


ater is the most essential element in our diet - but not all drops are created equal. While the simple equation of two hydrogen bonded to one oxygen is the main, the balance of minerals and minimisation of harmful chemicals makes a big difference. When choosing a bottled water, it is important to know what you are looking for. Spring water is extracted directly from a freshwater source, such as an underground spring. Mineralised water, on the other hand, passes through rocks which imbue the water with small amounts of elements. Artesian water is sourced in a similar fashion to spring and mineral water, the key difference being that the source is free flowing and doesn’t require any pumping. This ensures minimal interference with the source and allows for a purer collection. Of course, the choice of water region is also an important consideration. Collected in North Island Ranges of New Zealand from the vapours of Antarctica, nakd water undergoes at least 50 years of natural filtration, passing through porous volcanic rock. This gives the water three key benefits. 1. Low in Nitrates Due to the natural filtration nakd water is low in nitrates, leaving a purer water and a tastier drink. Nitrates can damage your cells and are only needed in small doses. 174

2. Low in sodium and dissolved solids Although not as noticeable as sea water, some bottled water can have higher amounts of sodium. With many foods already high in sodium, this helps ensure you have a balanced intake day to day. This also gives the water a “soft” taste, making it clean, refreshing and light to drink. nakd water is in fact one of the softest and purist waters in the world. 3. High in Silica This is a vital component in the production of collagen, the building blocks for vital parts of your body such as skin, hair and nails and can help revitalise your body and give you a fresher appearance. If you want the very best from your water, it’s great to go nakd. As a multi-award winning product and a member of the Fine Water Society, you can be assured of the quality and purity in every bottle of nakd water.

nakd is the perfect choice whether having a meal, enjoying sport, or partying into the night.

Look great, feel great, get nakd.


Everybody Needs a Little Rehab Produce straight from the farm, the orchard, and the ocean to you.


ehab is a fresh and exciting new restaurant for health food addicts, serving quick, healthy and delicious salads, warm bowls, bone broth, raw bakery and smoothies. It is as healthy as possible from grow to grab’n’go. The team are all about creating amazing food that’s good for you and the planet. Wholesome, tasty and fanatically fresh, all their products come straight from the farm, the orchard, and the ocean to you. Rehab source local and organic ingredients from farmers they know and partners they trust, supporting communities and creating meaningful relationships with those around them. Founded in 2013, Rehab started with a desire to provide a healthier alternative for Queenstown. Their original idea has evolved, transformed, and become a mission cultivated out of a commitment to honesty, integrity and being real. Founder Richard Docherty, originally from Glasgow Scotland, moved to Queenstown just a little over 7 years ago. He served his apprenticeship and studied Electrical Engineering though Babcock International and HMNB Clyde on the west coast of Scotland. After settling in Queenstown, Richard was given an opportunity to go out and run a local Cherry Orchard. After one and a half seasons on the orchard, he watched in amazement each day as ton after ton of fresh produce was left to rot out in the central Otago heat. Usually due to ripeness, bruising or just too ugly for export and not valuable enough for local markets.


A seed had been planted and off he went back to Queenstown with the aim of opening a health food store that would use local produce yielded from relationships built on his time at the orchard. To test the concept, he initially built his first Rehab store in Frankton and after 18 months the time had come to launch a newer version into the heart of Queenstown. What started out as a Smoothie and Baked Potato Store has slowly but intentionally morphed into the Healthy, Fast, Casual dining store that prides itself on health, nutrition and education. As the company evolves, it searches for partners that share the same ethos. Every month the company picks through its supply chain, ensuring the commitment to quality, sustainability and support of local growers is maintained. This truly is the heart of the company, and the Rehab story itself. Supporting and working alongside local communities and preparing healthy food, that’s great for the planet. Their second site, Plantb which opens at Queenstown Airport in December 2017, will be providing plant based, sustainable and seasonal products for commuters and travelers.

• It’s an easy way to reach your daily intake of fruit and vegetables. • Raw green juice has key micronutrients that many people are lacking. • Many commercial juices are highly processed and often full of sugar. • It can make adopting healthier eating patterns much easier for those who aren’t used to having vegetables as a regular part of their diet.

Breville’s Juice Fountain

Juice more, store more, clean less.

Introducing Brevilles latest kitchen appliance, the Breville Juice Fountain with cold spin technology. This impressive juicer will minimize prep time and clean-up giving you more time to enjoy your day, while enriching your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs. The Breville Juice Fountain allows juice to flow up and through the elevated juicing system, so instead of making a small amount of juice, you can make up to 2 litres of juice at a time. With the addition of the Seal and Store Jug, your juice can be stored directly in the door of your refrigerator as the sealed lid keeps juice fresher for longer, meaning less prepping and cleaning. The Breville Juice Fountain is a must have in your kitchen this summer, or the perfect gift for that special someone who loves fresh, nutrient rich juice. Juice more, store more, clean less.

Finding Empowerment in Beauty Rules are much more fun when broken.


he idea of beauty and being a strong woman can be hard to balance. In the past, the messages we received from media and peers were damaging to our self-esteem, reinforcing the idea that we were not good enough and we had to follow specific beauty trends and rules to counteract this. However, a new era has dawned in the world of beauty. Gone are the days of applying lipstick just before the husband’s car pulls into the driveway and getting beauty treatments just for the sake of fitting in. Women (and some men) across the world are embracing the idea of self-love and acceptance, using beauty care as a tool for elevation, rather than a cure for a perceived imperfect face. Taking charge of your look is just one step to being an allrounded modern woman. Whether a full-face of make-up every day or just a classic smoky eye and new hairstyle for a special occasion, you can do as much or as little as you like. The key is to do it for yourself first and foremost and resist the pressure to conform unwillingly.

Three Tips to Empowered beauty • Appreciate your base and the things you love about yourself. Make-up, skin and hair is all about enhancing your best features and there is no need to be forced into modesty. • Feel free to admit to yourself the areas that you aren’t 100 percent happy with and realise that it doesn’t devalue you. It’s also fine to feel like you want to change something, not because you want to adhere to any particular standards but because it makes you feel better. • Don’t be afraid to be bold with a new look. Rules are much more fun when broken so whip out the bold lipstick that your mother-in-law said doesn’t suit you and add that extra accessory onto your look (sorry Coco, times have changed). For beauty that makes you feel in control, be sure to get in touch with Pigment today. Pigment specialises in micropigmentation, special occasion make up, spray tanning and eyebrow grooming at the specialist brow bar to add an extra sparkle to your beautiful canvas.

A Plastic-Free Future? GoodFor takes it one step further.


t’s hard to avoid plastic. It is in everything we use and while many understand the impact plastic has on the environment, our oceans, and marine life, it is not always easy to find an alternative. However, there are businesses striving to make a sustainable life a viable choice for consumers. One of the companies leading the way is GoodFor, a packaging free grocery store based in Auckland. While there are a plethora of health and organic food stores, GoodFor takes it one step further. Founder and director James Denton was inspired to open GoodFor after realising the multitude of waste created by each person. He is supported by his brother Paul Denton, the General Manager, they both are passionate about campaigning for a better environment, and educating consumers along the way. Many supermarkets promote the use of reusable bags, which is a great start, but James believes he responsibility to reduce waste shouldn’t stop there. “I thought - hold on, when I go to the supermarket, I’m filling my bag up with plastic,” he explains.

And so he created GoodFor, which, in their own words, “exists for the sole purpose to help aid in the clean up of our beautiful planet that we call Earth”. Essentially, it is a simple way to shop in a sustainable manner that doesn’t break the bank. It’s so easy to get people behind a concept like this,” adds James. “It’s something a consumer can immediately act on - they don’t have to buy an electric car, they don’t have to fit their house out with solar panels. It’s really easy.” The plastic-free shopping experience allows consumers to fill their pantries without all the wasteful packaging that comes with it. Moreover, GoodFor have also teamed up with “Trees For The Future” who not only grow carbon dioxide eating trees but also help impoverished communities all over the world to learn how to grow and manage their own foods sources. Living 100% plastic-free is near to impossible. With initiatives such as GoodFor, we can start take a step in the right direction. And as more consumers take this path, it’s likely we’ll see more and more industries offering sustainable products and services.

How To Eat Gluten Free Gluten intolerance has caused many people today to realise they need to change their diet.


or many it is not just a ‘fad’ even if they are not coeliac. They can still get incredible pain and suffering after ingesting gluten. If avoiding gluten simply means no suffering with pain, bloating, wind and other metabolic upsets, sometimes for a week or so, and Gluten Free means a contented gut and peace and well being, obviously the benefits outweigh the disadvantages of the Gluten Diet! So it is not just for coeliacs! It is possible to have one coeliac gene and have terrible gluten intolerance but not be diagnosed as coeliac. And now we’re learning the gut bio is connected to the brain and psychologists are learning the significance of the gut on our brain health and activity! So how then do we look after our gut and change our diet to avoid this Gluten? Gluten is the name given to the protein in wheat, rye, barley and oats. (It is a composite name representing -gliadin in wheat, hordein in barley, secalin in rye, and avenin in oats.) There is a gentler, ancient wheat called Spelt which those who can tolerate some gluten find works for them. But it still contains gluten. Unless specified gluten free, the following foods are generally NOT gluten free: bread, burger buns, cakes, biscuits, croutons, stuffing, luncheon meats, sausages, beer, bagels, cheesecake, wraps, doughnuts, buns, spaghetti, pasta, breakfast cereals, dried packet soup, pizza bases, pies, crackers, and gravy. Thickening in soups and stews also usually contain gluten. Even the spicy coating on some chips contains gluten! All pre packaged food packets need to be checked. So what food is Gluten Free? Naturally Gluten Free foods include: fresh fruit, vegetables, rice, potato, corn, plain meat (not sausages), fish, eggs, cheese, milk, most yoghurts, pulses (peas, 186

beans and lentils), fats and oils. And the Gluten Free grains are: Amaranth, Arrowroot, Buckwheat, Chia, Coconut flour, Corn Flour, Maize flour, Millet, Potato starch, Potato flour, Quinoa, Rice, Rice bran, Rice flour, Sago, Sorghum, Soy, Tapioca and Teff. There are lots of gluten free recipe sites now (including paleo) and those cooks amongst us can become quite creative and cook their own gluten free bread, biscuits and cakes, and even make spaghetti spirals out of zuchinni. The NZ food industry is now becoming more aware of ‘Gluten Free’ and Gluten Free products are becoming available especially in Health Food Stores, some Supermarkets and Gluten Free stores. The breads especially are becoming healthier, more creative and enjoyable. Also good restaurants are usually able to provide Gluten Free meals on request. But If you want to keep healthy, avoid buying the Gluten Free products full of sugar, artificial colourings, flavourings and other harmful additives. And it’s still important to check the ingredients and avoid cross contamination by avoiding products with statements such as ‘may contain gluten’. Products displaying the Crossed Grain logo are certified by Coeliac New Zealand, and are independently tested to be safe for people with coeliac disease and those on a gluten free diet. This provides assurance that a product is safe. Products manufactured in New Zealand and Australia, can only be labelled ‘Gluten Free’ if they contain ‘no detectable gluten’. But many imported products are not labelled under the New Zealand food labelling law. So we need to stay alert and aware. Happy GF eating!

Happiness found from within Restoring health for mind, body and soul with Janice, founder of Onion Jam.


FT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a powerful, drug-free, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use technique that can reduce stress or painful emotions associated with thoughts and past experiences. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are several points on your body that can be gently tapped with one’s fingertips, whilst repeating certain phrases at the same time, effectively harnessing your body’s emotional energy. Janice, founder of the West Auckland business, Onion Jam Creative Foods, is a foodie and spiritual adviser who practices EFT and Hypnotherapy and believes the combination of both practices work remarkably well, Janice explains why. “I trained in Hypnotherapy in Auckland in 2008 and EFT in Sydney 2009, alongside completing online courses in both. With every session, I usually start with EFT, as it brings the energy of emotions to the fore and can often result in the negative energy diminishing almost immediately, then follow up with hypnosis. The advantage of EFT is that I can teach my client to use it for themselves for the rest of their lives, so that they can tap into that energy daily or when need be. One woman who had constant pain in her hip after a car accident several years earlier, was completely cured in one session using EFT with a follow up of Hypnotherapy. Five years later, she is still pain free. However not all cases are like this, as each person is unique and the results can be on a scale of fantastic to “I’m much better”. Both EFT and Hypnotherapy have obvious uses such as to quit smoking, lose weight, pain relief, freedom from phobias, anxiety and so on. However, I am deeply interested in treating difficult cases such as autoimmune diseases and other chronic illnesses. My fees are reasonable, others charge three times as much as I do, however I am comfortable with my costs. I strongly believe in the benefits of these two therapies combined and love seeing the relief and peace it has brought to so many of my clients”

LAST WORD Contouring


ontouring is still beauty’s reigning buzzword, helping those of us who don’t have the cheekbones of a Victoria’s Secret supermodel. No longer just reserved for the Kardashians of the world, contouring has become as common as red lipstick when it comes to achieving the perfect makeup look. In the same way your favourite Instagram filter does, the right contouring brings light, structure, and definition to your face. Essentially, contouring can make your cheekbones appear more defined than they really are, and play with light to ensure your face is framed correctly. It’s a simple way to enhance your natural beauty, that comes off at the end of the night. As such, there’s no doubt in our mind that contouring is here to stay.
