Palm Clinic will be the first clinic in New Zealand to offer a new prescription medicine that is capable of growing your eyelashes longer, thicker and darker.
Better than mascara or eyelash tattooing as these are your own lashes.
This is the most common question I get asked by clients considering liposuction. The answer is "in an ideal world it would be great if your were ideal body weight, toned and just had tiny areas of fat spoiling the image".
In the real world most people are struggling with their weight, and liposuction of stubborn areas of fat can give you a real boost in self esteem and confidence to get back to the gym and sort out your nutrition. So you can get to your ideal body weight first or use liposuction as a stimulant to achieve what can be a very difficult goal for most people. Your choice! You will get good results either way.
They usually happen in the evening and can make sleeping really difficult. It feels like you don't know where to put the legs and they can be associated with a twitchy feeling so that the legs need to be moved frequently. The cause is not known and is probably multi factorial. Magnesium deficiency can be relevant for some people.

Been looking for an effective treatment for stretch marks? Look no further.
Fraxel laser works by causing ‘controlled damage’ to the outer layers of the skin. This stimulates a healing process, the end product being collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin help the skin look soft and smooth again. Fraxel laser is used to improve texture and tightness of skin on the face, neck, decolletage and hands, to reduce acne scarring and also for stretch marks.
I had BOTOX treatment to my palms to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). I had suffered with this for years, especially over the summer months. I'm delighted with the results... and noticed recently that I can now leave my hands on the black reception desk at Palm Clinic and not leave wet marks behind- the bench test!
Botox works by blocking the message from the nerve to the sweat gland, thereby inhibiting sweating. The results for excessive sweating can last up to one year. Another popular area for treatment is the armpits.

What is more important however is replacing the lost volume. Look at anyone in their youth and they have a fullness to their face particularly noticeable in younger woman with high cheekbones.
As we age we lose fat from the cheek area often revealing a flatness in the mid-face and the tell tale wrinkles and lines under and around the eyes. This area in particular benefits from volumising with dermal fillers.
