Why Choose The Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic?
The Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, Kent is led by a Consultant Dermatologist and Laser Specialist. It is the winner of the Gold Award for Cosmetic Clinic of the Year at The Kent Health & Beauty Awards 2016. The Clinic is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission. All the doctors, nurse and therapists are highly trained and have many years experience in the treatments offered.
Your appointments are never rushed. We will take time to explain the procedures to you, make a personalised assessment of your needs and agree a treatment plan to suit you.
You are in SAFE HANDS with us:
At The Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, we offer consultations with Dermatologists, Skin and Laser Specialists, Cosmetic Doctors and Aesthetic Nurses who are all qualified with years of experience to ensure the treatments you receive are safe and appropriate.
Dermatologists are expert specialists, not only of the skin, but also of allergic conditions such as contact dermatitis, hair problems such as alopecia (hair loss), nail problems such as fungal nail conditions etc.
If you have concerns about any of these areas, please call to make an appointment to see one of our specialists, as we are the only clinic in Kent with consultant dermatologists heading the team.
In October 2010, the Government implemented a change in the regulation of providers of cosmetic laser treatments, and some surgical treatments including the use of anti-wrinkle injections such as dermal fillers and neurotoxins by totally removing these from the regulatory body, namely the Care Quality Commission, that had previously overseen standards.
What this means is that anyone could now treat you with a class IV laser, or inject you with a filler, without any significant training! Your safety will inevitably be potentially compromised.
We can reassure you that The Skin and Laser Clinic remains committed to providing safe cosmetic and laser treatments in an environment that is fit for purpose, and we remain registered with, and regulated by, the Care Quality Commission.
Why choose us?
There are many so-called skin and beauty clinics opening now providing these sorts of services. Beware, most are not regulated by the Care Quality Commission, and the practitioners will have limited, if any, experience in treating patients, with the majority being unable to make a proper dermatology diagnosis!
The equipment and the product they use may be of inferior quality or bought on line. We recommend you take extreme caution when choosing a practitioner and clinic to provide your cosmetic treatments.
At Skin and Laser, we are dermatologically trained doctors who are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of skin-related problems. That is what we do, and have been doing for many years!
An unregulated clinic does not have to do undergo any regulation and training steps to ensure your safety, and will not have the training that doctors like us have had to undertake, and continue to update.
At the end of the day, who will you trust to treat your face or body? Surely a medical practitioner who has had the best training, years of experience and with ongoing training and regulation is the appropriate person. Would you trust anyone else?
As an independent clinic, we do not have a team of sales people who are there to try to sell you unnecessary treatments. We have only responsible, professional doctors and therapists who provide expert, ethical, appropriate and individual advice to you. We are able to offer an extensive range of possible treatments at very competitive prices.
We provide expert diagnosis, advice and treatment for you. The same doctor will see you through your treatment programme from start to finish, ensuring continuity of care every step of the way. Why settle for less? Come to us, the experts in skin assessment and treatment.
