Dr Teresa Cattin


Dr Teresa Cattin is one of NZ’s most experienced cosmetic physicians with over 20 years experience. Dr Cattin established FaceWorks Cosmetic Clinic and developed her own skincare range of the same name in 2001.

Dr Cattin was the first physician trainer in NZ teaching other doctors throughout NZ, and internationally, how to use Botox and Juvederm. Dr Cattin has lectured and run teaching workshops throughout Asia – Pacific including India, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Korea. She is also the immediate past-President of the NZ College of Appearance Medicine (now called the New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine) which she was instrumental in establishing.

To ensure she is up to date with the latest trends in cosmetic medicine, Teresa attends international conferences in Europe every year. Teresa regularly spends time with colleagues in France as she prefers “La French Touch” – the French style of cosmetic enhancement which gives beautifully subtle and natural looking results. The French approach is to enhance the natural beauty of the face, enhancing positive features rather than attempting to completely conceal the normal signs of ageing. This means that when you have a treatment at FaceWorks, nobody needs to know – you will just look like a “fresher” version of you.

Dr Leigh Cattin

BSc. (Biology), BNurs., M.D.

Leigh, having completed her training as  a registered nurse decided to return to study and train as a doctor. Leigh has just completed her medical degree and is planning to follow in her mother’s footsteps practising in family medicine and appearance medicine.

Working closely with her mother for many years, and travelling with her to European conferences, Leigh is well-versed in “La French Touch” and understands the long term benefits of small amounts of BOTOX to prevent deeper lines from forming while keeping a beautifully natural looking result.
