Dr Yannis Alexandrides, 111 Harley St. and 111SKIN founder and Plastic Surgeon, says that in his experience, brides prefer the fuss-free route to treatments which is why we are spotlighting our zero-downtime skin treatments such as ClearLift, ClearSkin and DYE-VL, or for more powerful results, it’s got to be Thermage and Potenza.
However, if you’re looking for results, keep reading.
We recommend treatments like Thermage FLX and Potenza RF Microneedling. As two of our most popular non-surgical treatments, they both combine radiofrequency but use them in entirely different ways.
Thermage uses thermal energy and radiofrequency, and is mainly known, and loved, as a skin tightening treatment. Because of it’s ability to contract the skin, it produces an immediate lift as it causes an endothermic reaction deep within. While Thermage is popularly performed to tighten stomach skin, it can additionally target any loose skin on the face and body.
It is a device with interchangeable tips, for the face, body, the eyes, and has recently been heralded in a press article as producing effects similar to Brow Lift, making it the perfect non-surgical alternative. Some of the other benefits of Thermage are:
Potenza is another fantastic pre-wedding treatment and while there is downtime with this treatment – you can expect redness afterwards – it is definitely worth it!
With amazing results seen after three treatments, Potenza immediately gets to work to stimulate collagen. As a microneedling treatment, you can expect micro-needles to gently penetrate the epidermis. But, the real magic happens when radiowaves are then emitted simultaneously.
Radiofrequency has a plethora of benefits, mainly it’s ability to stimulate collagen leading to tighter and firmer skin. When you combine these two methods together, expect each Potenza treatment to start tightening, firming, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, alongside benefits such as improving skin texture, shrink pores and diminishing scars and pigmentation.

As the day gets closer, this is the time when you want to start having your injectable treatments, such as your Lip Fillers, Dermal Fillers or Botox at our Harley Street clinic. Getting any injectables a few months before gives the products – whether it’s the hyaluronic acid from the filler or the botulinum toxin from the Botox – time to settle and work.
Some popular treatment areas are:

See above for all you need to know about Potenza and Thermage, but we want to talk you about our other top treatment to have 2-4 months before the wedding and it’s iPixel.
iPixel is a fractional, ablative laser treatment that delivers precise beams of energy in a grid-like formation. It treats the face systematically, which is where it gets it name iPixel from – as it covers the face square by square, pixel by pixel.
The surrounding cells remain intact, which speeds up healing and downtime, and dramatically rejuvenates the cells it targets. The heat from the laser stimulates collagen production to remodel and fill in the area with new healthy cells giving you a renewed, clearer and brighter complexion. It is especially popular among those who have acne or suffering from active acne.
During your consultation with the Head of our Non-Surgical Department, Kerstie, she will outline the number of courses needed and whether iPixel is the right route for you to go down to get wedding-ready.Book now
One to two months beforehand is time for injectables, and not all injectables have to offer dramatic results. Injections are actually one highly efficient method of directly nourishing your skin. Enter Mesotherapy.We recommend Mesotherapy for our male-presenting patients as it doesn’t alter the appearance, like Dermal Fillers can, it simply floods it with amino-acids, vitamins and nutrients for healthy, brighter skin.
Another two injectable treatments we recommend are Profhilo and Botox. As many people know what Botox is and how it can soften the folds, furrows and frown lines of the face, not many might have heard of Profhilo.
Profhilo is the one-of-a-kind, beneath the skin, hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment that not only intensely hydrates and brightens the skin – it also gives your skin a subtle lift. This helps to counteract the effects of gravity and the signs of ageing. Profhilo has specific injection points to give you a whole, even rejuvenation. These points are often 5 on each side of the face but depending on your area of concern, one of our Aesthetic Nurses or Doctor will identify the areas you’ll benefit most from.
Unlike other filler types that build volume, or plump out lines, Profhilo has a smoother consistency that spreads evenly. You could think of it like an injectable serum, that disperses ultra-pure hyaluronic acid directly into the epidermis.
As the hyaluronic acid spreads, it stimulates four different types of collagen and elastin. In doing so, it helps to smooth lines and wrinkles and tightens the skin. The moisture-binding injectable also keeps the skin radiant youthfully-plump.
One of the biggest benefits of our Profhilo treatment is that the initial glow lasts for a month and the collagen produced lasts for several months after your first treatment.
