Three non-surgical alternatives to anti-ageing for great skin

As we age, we can become increasingly concerned about the fine lines and wrinkles on our faces, and this often leads us to seek a solution. But what options are available if you’re not keen to undergo injectable anti-ageing treatments? It can be hard to know where to start, and what level of commitment or finance we’re willing to commit in order to turn back the clock. There are a number of things you can do for your ageing skin, with varying results and implications. Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers advice on non-surgical alternatives to anti-ageing for patients from Maidstone, Kent, Ashford, Dover, Faversham, Folkestone and Thanet, ranging from cosmeceutical skincare to skin peels, and skin tightening.


There are thousands of products available on the market that promise anti-ageing properties, and they’re met with varying responses. At any given time, there will be a ‘miracle’ product on the scene, before the competition becomes overcrowded and there’s the next ‘big’ thing. Some of these products do have restorative properties, certainly, and the vitamins and nutrients with which these products are infused will only be beneficial for your overall skin health.

If you begin to use anti-ageing products at a young age, it is likely that you’ll seek a more permanent solution later in life than if you hadn’t used them. At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we offer patients cosmeceutical skincare in the form of SkinCeuticals, Medik8, Skin Medica, amongst others.

Skin Peels

The next port of call in non-surgical alternatives to anti-ageing might be to seek a chemical skin peel. There are a number of different types of chemical skin peel, and they all have different properties, and perform different actions. It is recommended that you visit a specialist to have a chemical peel – at-home kits are en vogue at the moment, but are rarely as effective as a professional application, and can be dangerous in the wrong hands.

A chemical peel is a great option for those who shy away from the idea of a ‘procedure’, but wish to see a more marked improvement in their skin than their current skincare regime is offering. Chemical peels shed the dead skin cells on the top layer of the face, exposing new skin below. Please note that these might not make a huge difference to each individual line and wrinkle on your face – but the rejuvenated skin will give you a glowing, youthful appearance which is difficult to capture with over-the-counter treatments.

Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers various types of facial chemical peel, each for different skin complaints and offering different restorative processes. A full, comprehensive consultation will ensure that you pick the right treatment for you and your skin type, and therefore have the best possible results from your treatment. He will also be able to put your mind at ease, and answer any questions you may have about the procedure, its potential side-effects and the recovery process.

Energy-Assisted skin tightening

If you’ve tried non-surgical alternatives to anti-ageing creams to little avail, and are looking to tighten the skin and reduce the effect of wrinkles, you could consider an energy-assisted treatment like Exilis Elite. They can offer a more permanent solution to your ageing concerns, whilst being completely non-invasive, virtually discomfort free, affordable and successful.

One benefit to treatment with radiofrequency devices like Exilis Elite is that you should begin to see improvements in your skin within just two weeks – a claim that very few non-surgical solutions to ageing can make. It is not permanent – no cosmetic treatment, surgical or otherwise, is – but you should expect to see successful, natural results.

Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic can offer you comprehensive advice. Book a consultation if you would like more information about non-surgical alternatives to anti-ageing in Ramsgate, Hythe, Whitstable, Faversham, Sittingbourne, Sheppy or Maidstone.
