Top Treatments to look Radiant, Refreshed and Youthful

Radiant, healthy skin is always in vogue! Cosmetic injectables such as anti-wrinkle and dermal filler are excellent anti-aging treatments and are often the first port of call to look more youthful. However, it is important not to overlook the importance of improving the overall skin quality as this can often better improve the overall youthfulness of ones appearance – think improvement in bounciness, elasticity, appearance of fine lines, and skin glow!

In a Transform Clinic appearance medicine assessment, there are four key areas of rejuvenation. The first being improving skin quality, followed by removing blemishes such as acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, wrinkles, facial veins; then shaping the face – contouring and addressing areas of volume loss; and finally, accentuating your beautiful features such as the eyes and lips.

A radiant, refreshed complexion starts with the health and overall quality of your skin. Good skin quality is where the skin looks healthy, hydrated, undamaged, and youthful in appearance. When we are younger, we have high-quality skin that looks fresher and healthier as it has ample amounts of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid – preserving its hydration, bounciness, and firmness. As most of us are aware, due to aging and other external factors, our supply of these components declines, and as a result we may notice our skin quality just isn’t as good anymore.

Below are some of Transform Clinic’s top treatments to improve skin quality:


A stabilised hybrid hyaluronic gel that is one of the more recent innovations to treat skin laxity by subcutaneous stimulation. Profhilo® works as a cell messenger that boosts the production of elastin and collagen in your skin, resulting in firmer, tighter skin and may restore volume to sagging or sunken areas.

Fotona 4D

The Fotona 4D is a non-invasive laser facelift that enables full-thickness contraction of collagen for persistent, low-downtime tightening and volumization (wrinkle reduction) without injectables. The Fotona 4D wavelengths are synergistically applied in 4 different modes (SMOOTH®, FRAC3®, PIANO® and SupErficial™) to work on deeper, medial, and superficial connective structures of the skin, while simultaneously targeting different skin imperfections. Transform Clinic has two Fotona Lasers available at both Christchurch clinics.

Fotona ‘Glow and go’

A 30-minute, no-downtime treatment for skin tightening with our Fotona laser that has become very popular with Transform clients. The energy is focussed under the skin to avoid burning the surface and the body’s natural response is to produce more collagen and elastin to support and tighten the skin.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) / Microneedling

CIT works by stimulating your natural collagen production and uses micro-needles that penetrate the epidermis, creating a cascade of growth factors that lead to collagen deposition.

Clinical Facials

Microdermabrasion, the HydraFacial™, and Vitamin C infusions using sonophoresis.

Medical Grade Skincare

High quality skincare is an essential, including active products and a good sunblock. The Dermatech Skincare range offers a range of well-proven cosmeceutical products using only scientifically recognised AHA, Retinyl products (Vitamin A), Vitamin C and SPF – all manufactured in New Zealand.

Transform Clinic has over 30 years of expertise in appearance medicine and offers a wide range of advanced cosmetic treatments to restore your glow, self-confidence and promote overall wellbeing and happiness.
