Hawke's Bay Today - - Front Page - By Linda Hall

PEAK AP­PEAR­ANCE has been ser­vic­ing Hawke’s Bay for more than a decade, and has built up a solid rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing the re­gion’s most trusted clinic, pro­vid­ing in­tel­li­gent skin re­ju­ve­na­tion treat­ments and ex­cel­lence in ap­pear­ance medicine care.

En­trusted and aes­thet­i­cally aware; the team at Peak Ap­pear­ance en­sure they are at the top of their game by up­skilling at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity.

Deb­bie Sweet, Lara Mol­loy and Sophie Hunter don’t fol­low trends, they fol­low ex­cel­lent med­i­cal prac­tices to en­sure ev­ery­one who walks through the door gets the very best ex­pe­ri­ence and out­come.

The team has a close bond and share a pas­sion for their work; when it comes to skin and ap­pear­ance medicine it’s easy to see why they have the fol­low­ing they do in Hawke’s Bay.

“We love the fact that we get the priv­i­lege of mak­ing peo­ple not only look bet­ter, but feel bet­ter about them­selves,” Lara said.

Sophie is the new­est mem­ber of the team hav­ing started work­ing at Peak Ap­pear­ance six months ago, bring­ing with her six years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try.

She says start­ing her new job was the high­light of her year and the goal for 2019 is to con­tinue en­joy­ing her job and her clients. “I love com­ing to work,” she said.

For Deb­bie, a mother of three, the high­light of her year was the birth of her youngest son and man­ag­ing a good work/home bal­ance. “Peak Ap­pear­ance is my es­cape — it’s the place I come to en­joy time with my clients.”

Her goal for next year is ed­u­ca­tion both for her­self and her clients.

For Lara the high­light of her year has been re­ceiv­ing CO2 laser treat­ment “and my nat­u­ral cru­sade”. Her goal for next year is to in­spire peo­ple to be healthy.

They all agree that ap­pear­ance medicine is far more ac­cept­able and af­ford­able than it was just five years ago.

“For us the goal is to ac­cen­tu­ate our client’s nat­u­ral fea­tures. Sausage lips are a thing off the past. We all love great lips but find that a lot of peo­ple get put off when they see on so­cial me­dia those with un­nat­u­rally fat lips.

“Peo­ple know a bit more about fillers these days and they know what they want — the re­ally re­fined, bet­ter look­ing skin and nat­u­ral healthy look­ing ap­pear­ance.”

The women all agree that the best thing you can do for your skin is use sun pro­tec­tion. “Not just on your face. You wrin­kle ev­ery­where so use it on any skin ex­posed to the sun.”

Peak Ap­pear­ance of­fers skin treat­ments and ap­pear­ance medicine tai­lored to the in­di­vid­ual’s needs.

“Come in for a free con­sul­ta­tion. Money spent on your skin is an in­vest­ment in the fu­ture you. It’s never too late to start and it’s one of the very best things you can do for your­self.”

The clinic of­fers a com­pre­hen­si­ble range of treat­ments in­clud­ing Bo­tox, der­mal fillers, fa­cial treat­ments and peels and light ther­a­pies.

They are also ex­perts in Frac­tional CO2 — a frac­tional or “pix­i­lated” car­bon diox­ide (CO2) laser that is the lat­est ad­vance­ment in non-sur­gi­cal skin re­ju­ve­na­tion treat­ments and Platelet Rich Plasma — a pop­u­lar range of treat­ments that use your own growth fac­tors to boost heal­ing. And if you are wor­ried about the hot days ahead and ex­ces­sive un­der­arm sweat­ing — don’t. The team at Peak Ap­pear­ance say it’s eas­ily treat­able with a few sim­ple in­jec­tions of Bo­tox in each armpit with the re­sults last­ing up to a year.

The team is look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a break at Christ­mas. Deb­bie says she will be en­joy­ing time with fam­ily while Sophie is head­ing to the beach with her fam­ily and Lara will be on the road in her car­a­van.

Asked to tell us some­thing sur­pris­ing about them­selves, Sophie replied that she had started train­ing for a multi sport event, Deb­bie re­vealed she is a chronic over-sharer and loves to tell sto­ries while Lara said she loves to pop things — “pim­ples, cysts, if it needs pop­ping I’ll do it”.

It’s ob­vi­ous that the team gel well to­gether and view their pro­fes­sion with great pride. A clinic with a strong med­i­cal ethos cou­pled with highly skilled and pas­sion­ate team means you can have com­fort know­ing you are putting your skin in the hands of the ex­perts.
