How do I find a good clinic that I can trust for Botox and Dermal Fillers?
Botox and dermal fillers can provide the most natural pleasing results or they can simply look wrong. It often depends on the aesthetic eye of your practitioner and his or her expertise and training. Choose a clinic which has medically qualified Dr’s and Nurses, who are experienced in a wide range of treatment options, and trained to advanced levels. All doctors at Palm Clinic are Fellows of the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine (NZCAM) and Dr John Barrett, the medical director of Palm Clinic was the Foundation President of NZCAM.
