As Allergan’s physician trainer, Dr Cattin has been teaching appearance medicine techniques using Botox®
to other doctors in New Zealand, Australia and Asia for over 14 years. Teresa personally favours the subtle French rejuvenation
techniques that aim to enhance natural beauty rather than attempt to completely erase facial lines and wrinkles.

The Development of the FaceWorks Skincare Range
Dr Teresa Cattin understands the frustration and disappointment that many women experience when using beauty
products and skincare treatments. The fact is, despite bold claims and promises, most over-the-counter skincare products do little more than deplete your wallet.
Dr Cattin realized that the reason many cosmeceutical products failed to deliver was because they were missing a vital ingredient - an in-depth medical knowledge about the skin’s ageing process. It was clear that cosmetic companies were lagging behind modern medicine in regard to skincare treatment. Using her extensive medical background and scientific knowledge, Dr Cattin decided to go back to basics and develop a unique range of skincare products based on sound medical understanding.
The result was the FaceWorks’ skin treatment programme, a comprehensive range combining proven, cutting-edge ingredients designed especially for the harsh climatic conditions of New Zealand and Australia.
