Fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are all common signs of ageing. But that doesn’t mean you just have to put up with them – there are ways to reduce wrinkles without surgery!
If you’re fed up, depressed or embarrassed by your ageing skin, you’re not alone. In fact, recent studies show that women as young as 24 are worried about fine lines and wrinkles!
While we can’t escape the effects of growing older, there are things we can do to slow the ageing process down, nurture, nourish and protect the skin – and treatments to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin if it is already having an impact on your appearance.
Eat Well & Stay Hydrated
Your skin is often a great indicator of what’s going on inside your body: skin problems can be a good warning sign that you need to take better care of your health.
Eating a diet that’s high in nutrients and low in junk such as sugar, additives, artificial flavours or sweeteners and refined grains can help give your skin what it needs to stay young and healthy for longer.
But if you only change one thing in your diet…
Drink more water!
Studies show that up to 75% of people are chronically dehydrated! There are billions of chemical reactions that occur in your body every second – and all of them require water to work at their best. When your body doesn’t have enough water, it saves the water it does have for the most essential tasks – brain function, breathing, circulation…Your skin is pretty low down on the list.
You might be wondering how much of a difference can water really make? Well, it will depend on how dehydrated you are in the first place – but for some people, it can have a huge impact! You might remember the story that did the rounds on social media a few years ago about the lady who increased her water and lost years from her face? Check it out here to see her before and after pictures…
So how much water is enough? The exact amount will vary depending on your height, weight, diet and activity level, but 2 litres is a good amount for most people.
Vitamin C Supplementation
Vitamin C is one of the body’s most important vitamins: essential for good immune function, absorption of other vitamins and minerals, protection against toxins and the repair and protection of your skin.
But many people are not getting nearly enough in their diets – and smoking, alcohol consumption and stress can suck up the vitamin C you do get from your food.
The RDA for vitamin C is just 60mg per day – but what many people don’t know is that the RDA is not the amount required for optimal health, it’s the bare minimum needed to avoid severe diseases such as scurvy.
Vitamin C can help to reduce wrinkles without surgery by enabling better collagen production and keeping your skin healthy. Supplementing with a high-quality ascorbic acid is affordable, easy and safe – you can pick up tablets or powder on Amazon or at your local health shop.
Using Vitamin C in your daily skincare routine is an absolute must as you get older. It not only helps to slow the signs of ageing but it also helps to brighten your skin and reduce dark spots. Improving your skin tone and texture goes a long way to maintaining a youthful appearance.
HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift
What if your wrinkles have already set in? What if you need something a little stronger to bump your body into regeneration mode and reduce wrinkles without surgery? A HIFU Non-Surgical Facial may be the answer.
Using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound energy this treatment targets deep into the structural layers of the skin, using heat to kickstart the body’s healing response. This naturally increases collagen production, giving you tighter, firmer skin and reducing wrinkles without surgery or injectables.
It’s safe, effective and suitable for treating loose, wrinkled or sagging skin in problem areas such as around your eyes, your mouth, jaw and neckline.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Treatment
Another highly-effective skin tightening treatment uses radio frequency energy. At The Body Clinic, we use the award-winning Exilis Elite.
The Exilis Elite combines high-intensity ultrasound with radio frequency to deliver heat into the dermis layer of your skin. This heat causes your old collagen and elastin fibres to break down, signalling the body to start making new ones. As your new collagen and elastin cells develop your skin starts to look tighter, firmer and smoother.
Exilis Elite is safe, effective and painless – making it a very popular treatment for reducing wrinkles without surgery.

Microneedling For Wrinkle Reduction
Much like Exilis Elite and HIFU, Microneedling can help rejuvenate your skin and give you a fresher, more youthful look – but reducing wrinkles without surgery isn’t all it can do! Microneedling is also highly effective at reducing scarring, reducing large pores and giving you firmer, healthier-looking skin!
Using a small mechanical Microneedling device we create tiny punctures in the surface of your skin – but don’t worry – it’s quick and pain-free!
These small, harmless punctures signal your body to repair the skin: producing new collagen and elastin which in turn reduces wrinkles without surgery.

Chemical Skin Peels
Another great non-invasive treatment that helps reduce wrinkles without surgery and gives you clearer, more radiant skin, is a chemical skin peel.
A chemical peel works by using acids that react with the protein in your skin causing peeling and a strong exfoliation effect. There are several different types of skin peels including glycolic acid peel treatment, a salicylic acid peel for acne and a TCA peel treatment.
For wrinkle reduction, a medium or deep peel is needed. This exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin – giving you smoother, younger and brighter looking skin.

While drinking more water will keep your skin hydrated from the inside, it’s important to keep it moisturised and nourished on the outside too.
