FaceWorks® - the French Connection

The Subtle Way To Enhance Your Natural Beauty

If you have a facial enhancement treatment with BOTOX® or the French dermal filler Juvéderm® from Dr Teresa Cattin at FaceWorks, chances are no one will know – you will just look fantastic without anyone knowing why.

Auckland appearance medicine guru and past President of the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine, Dr Teresa Cattin regularly attends conferences and workshops in Paris to keep abreast of the latest French style appearance medicine techniques: “For the French, beauty is not about looking wrinkle-free and smooth.  The aim is to soften selected lines while leaving others alone, so the face still has character and natural movement.  True beauty is about harmony and balance, not about attempting to look younger”.

Dr Cattin is a national doctor trainer for Allergan the company which makes BOTOX® and Juvéderm®, and teaches other doctors in New Zealand and Australia how to use BOTOX® and Juvéderm®.  Dr Cattin likes to learn the more subtle advanced French techniques at first hand – working with some of France’s top cosmetic surgeons.

Fighting Volume Loss

As we age, we may start to look more tired than we feel - lips and cheeks in particular can show the first signs of ageing, losing volume and deflating rather like a balloon.  Fine lines appear on the upper lip, causing lipstick to smudge and the clear sharp definition we had becomes blurred.  The French believe this volume loss has more effect on our appearance than the development of wrinkles or lines and so their approach to enhancing the face is to carefully replace volume in areas it has been depleted, rather than attempting to eradicate lines.

The product the French doctors favour to enhance what they refer to as the “natural beauty” of the face is a “new generation” hyaluronic acid dermal filler.  Made in France, this dermal filler has been the favourite amongst appearance medicine doctors in Europe for many years because it gives a very soft and natural-looking result.

Skin Care Range

“The other area the French seem to excel in is skin care.  From an early age the French understand the importance of looking after their skin with effective products and regular microdermabrasion.  There is no doubt that the results of any treatment that you chose to have, be it BOTOX® or a Juvéderm® will be greatly improved if the skin is healthy and well cared for”.

In response to the lack of effective scientifically based skin care, 19 years ago Dr Cattin developed the FaceWorks range of skincare products.  Made in New Zealand and designed specifically for our harsh climate, FaceWorks skin care products are a firm favourite with beauty editors and have a loyal following amongst both women and men wanting an effective and affordable cosmeceutical skincare range.
