Why Palm Clinic?

Experience: Dr John Barrett formed Palm Clinic in 1996 to bring patients safer, easier ways to treat varicose veins and improve their skin, using injections instead of surgery. As one of the first doctors in New Zealand to offer treatments like Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy and Botox, Dr Barrett saw how patients loved these effective, less invasive treatments and Palm Clinic's philosophy was born: improve people's lives by providing non surgical treatments in a friendly, efficient way. Palm Clinic grew as Dr Barrett attracted like-minded people around him: caring, down-to-earth doctors and nurses, committed to providing the highest quality care. Palm Clinic now stands as one of the longest established clinics of it's kind in New Zealand and has a reputation for safe, natural results. Our staff are leaders in their fields, constantly updating their skills at international conferences, and in demand to educate their colleagues. You can be sure you will get a top quality experience at Palm Clinic.

Prepare for summer with liposculpture

This is a great time of year for liposculpture to remove those unwanted areas of fat and produce the body contour you have always wanted.  Because full results can take up to three months now is the right time for liposuction and you can be back at work in three days. Liposculpture can treat all areas of the body and is also used for non surgical breast reduction.
