Cosmetic medicine is not guesswork, it is medicine. Cosmetic medicine with OPA is tailored to your exact needs, using our current extensive medical training, knowledge, skills and the latest products and techniques.
We are a boutique NZ family owned and operated, open by appointment medical clinic where we treat each and every one of our patients (and you are patients, not clients, having medical procedures) individually. You are unique and there is no “one size fits all” that they can occur at large chains.
As we are open by appointment, could I please appeal to you that if you can’t make your appointment, please let us know and we can reschedule for you. We set up the clinic and have staff come in just for you. We realise that things change, life happens and we will do our best to be as flexible as possible for you and your lifestyle. We really don’t mind if you need to reschedule!
We tailor make your cosmetic medicine treatments just for you. This starts with a detailed initial consultation, pictures (before and after, to view your progress) and a detailed informed consent process. The more we know about you and your goals, the better your end results and the safer your treatments will be. We use our knowledge, training and skills to get you the results you are looking for, which may include treatments you hadn’t considered or even know about. Trust OPA to take care of you!
But remember, the longer you leave before the start of your cosmetic medicine journey with us, the more skill, experience and cost it will take to achieve your goals. Think of it as beauty maintenance!
Make no mistake, cosmetic medicine treatments are not simply beauty treatments like hair, eyebrows and derma planing. They are medical procedures with benefits and risks. We take informed consent very seriously and we’ll guide you through the whole process, so your happy to proceed. My background in anaesthesia and intensive care, puts safety front and centre.
Part of ensuring we do our best for you, to get the results you’re seeking safely, are our comprehensive aftercare instructions and follow up visits, where we see your initial results and adjust to make you just so.
Follow up is an integral part of your treatment and an expectation from us.
How we work
Our philosophy is to treat lightly, especially the first time we treat you, as we can always add more. This helps reduce your risk of complications and ultimately could reduce your overall costs, too! If you don’t attend, you reduce your chances of things working out the way you’d like and increase your chances of complications. Remember, very little can be done over the phone. We need to see you in person. Rest assured we take contact precautions very seriously.
Our philosophy is to get you looking always natural, never fake… to have you looking age appropriate, the best you can be and not like anyone else. In short, looking good and make people wonder how! We also know you may worry about discomfort, and we have many ways to make the treatments as comfortable as possible, such as offering local anaesthetic blocks for certain procedures.
OPA is not a conveyor belt where one size fits all. We can and do think outside the box to get you the results you want and deserve.
