Our Team

Nelsons Top Appearance Medicine Specialists


Clinical Team Leader/Appearance Medicine Nurse Specialist

I’m a Registered Nurse specialising in cosmetic injectables. I have over 14 years’ experience in my chosen field and a nursing career spanning 2 decades, previously working in hospital surgical settings. I also hold a nursing role at Nelson Plastic Surgery, allowing for an easy transition into surgical options if required, provided by one of New Zealand’s most experienced Plastic Surgeons.

I’ve been fortunate to have trained with many national and international industry leaders, establishing a reputation in New Zealand for my natural looking results and gentle injecting techniques.

My favourite treatment to perform is dermal filler injections. I believe it’s one of the most effective treatments for many age-related concerns. It is also fantastic for enhancing and restoring defining features such as cheeks and lips and the youthful contours of the face.  i also love anti-wrinkle injections, carefully applied personalised doses of cosmetic botulinum toxin can take years off an aging face and used correctly and regularly is the best wrinkle preventative alongside daily sunscreen.

My favourite skincare product is ZO Skin Health’s Exfoliating Polish, its superpower being smoothing skin to a fine polish. ZO Skin Health is the medical grade skincare line recommended by and retailed from Nelson Appearance Medicine and Nelson Plastic Surgery, I’ve been using it myself for well over 2 years now and its truly in a league of its own.

(On Maternity Leave) Returning Soon

My name is Casey Havik, I am a NZ Registered Nurse, having completed my Bachelor of Nursing Degree in 2013. I worked in Primary Health and Emergency for 4 years before following my dream to specialise in Appearance Medicine 4.5 years ago.

I have always had a passion for Art, Science and Beauty, so I am completely in my element as an Appearance Medicine Nurse. Being able to give people confidence and boost self-esteem is so rewarding! I love how a subtle tweak here, and a touch of strategically placed volume there, can restore the harmony in someone’s face, giving an overall refreshed and well rested look, whilst remaining completely undetectable. I pride myself in tailoring treatments specific to my clients to ensure the most beautiful, natural results. I often use a range of modalities throughout a journey to achieve the best outcomes.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful 2-year-old boy, nerding out on the latest Appearance Medicine techniques and treatments, drawing and sewing.

My favourite skin care products currently are the ZO Complexion Clearing Masque and ZO Exfoliating Polish. My favourite treatment would have to be PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). This stuff is liquid gold!
