Business Awards 2020

16 APAC / Business Awards 2020 , The Face Place started as Australasia’s first specialised Botox Centre in 2001, and has since continued to be an innovator and change agent in the industry. To start, Dr Catherine Stone provides a brief overview of the firm and offers more insight into its clientele. “The Face Place is highly regarded as one of NZ’s top clinics, with a reputation for beautiful, natural looking results, excellent advice, high integrity, and great service, as we actually care about the customer. As the market leaders in safe, simple, and effective non-surgical ‘lunchtime’ procedures, all are medically proven, naturally based and offer high reward with low risk. Treatments include Botox, dermal filler, PRP and advanced skin treatments, all of which have been personally trialled by our team to ensure we have the best quality results possible. After launching as NZ’s first medical spa in 2004, we began to see clients travelling from all around the world for treatments.” In 2013, Dr Cat, started travelling to London every 3-4 months to work at the world-renowned Phi Clinic in Harley St, working alongside some of the world’s top cosmetic injectors. Dr Cat’s involvement in the TV series ‘Ten Years Younger’, from the very first pilot to being the most commonly used cosmetic expert in the programmes, raised the profile of the whole industry and helped the general public understand injectable cosmetic procedures, making them more accessible and achievable. With a strong focus on innovation and education, Dr Cat and the team travel globally on a regular basis to develop their learning. From day one the team set out to deliver the ultimate experience in non-surgical Cosmedicine, and as Dr Cat goes on to explain, innovation and education has played a key role in the firm’s client approach. “Due to our extensive network with world-leading authorities in our industry and my philosophy of including the referring doctor in ongoing care, we have been able to help other doctors both nationally and internationally with their difficult cases. This means our clients come first, with the best access to high quality assurance and knowledge.” Best Non-Surgical Cosmetic Clinic - Auckland Renowned as NewZealand’s firstmedical spa and aworld-class facility inCosmedicine, The Face Place offers safe andhighly effectivemethods of enhancing your appearance.

Despite this, the team adapted around the circumstances and were able to thrive as Dr Cat points out. “Luckily, we were able to pivot by using technology to embrace 3D consultations and virtual patient care.” Finally, Dr Cat comments on the future of The Face Place, looking ahead to 2021 and beyond. “Since inception, we have achieved great milestones and significant growth, and as we adapt to the new world around us, we will continue to stay at the forefront of the industry by hiring passionate people, remaining curious and putting our clients at the heart of every decision we make.” The Face Place Dr Catherine Stone
