Blemished Skin

Blemished Skin Options

Treating acne often requires a three-step approach through eliminating bacteria (and assessing acne-causes to manage the symptoms), resurfacing the skin, and reducing inflammation. Our practitioners have a great deal of experience in treating acne and will customise your personalised programme accordingly, depending on how your skin responds to treatment. See our most popular blemished skin treatments below or browse our full menu.

ClearSkin ClearSkin/Isolaz


At 111 Harley St., we usually perform professional extractions as part of any of our treatment programmes to remove debris from the pores. After this, we may recommend a series of ClearSkin Laser treatments to support this process – this gentle treatment treats acne in three ways. It has vacuum technology to unclog the pores while eliminating bacteria. It also helps to keep acne under control by reducing oil production.

The treatment will start with a consultation where we will discuss your treatment goals and determine the type and severity of your acne. Based on the assessment, we will devise a custom acne programme.

During the treatment, the nurse will use a hand-held device to make passes over the skin-this will follow with a gentle vacuum.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types. Clearskin works well for those who have acne-prone, or oily skin and large pores. We use this treatment for those with active acne and can treat acne scarring, but for those who no longer have acne and are looking to treat their scarring alone, they may benefit more so from iPixel.

Approximately 30 minutes.

The treatment addresses three primary causes of acne, including excess oils, dead skin cells (which block the pores and can stretch their lining) and bacteria. The laser penetrates and targets bacteria while minimising oil-producing activity. It’s a non-ablative laser and heats the dermal layer beneath the skin without damaging it.

Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, the built-in vacuum technology sucks the debris, oils and dead skin cells from the pores. Due to ClearSkin’s collagen stimulating properties, it’s a treatment that is effective in reducing acne scarring too.

For occasional breakouts or ongoing skin maintenance, we may recommend the Clarity Facial that works as an all-rounder for keeping your complexion clear.

The Clarity facial is a luxury, yet gentle acne-focused facial that addresses the patient’s specific concerns such as comedones or breakouts in a particular area. The skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove impurities and debris from the pores.

Using a tailored selection of 111SKIN acne-focused products, exfoliation ensues to dislodge blackheads and dead skin cells, and encourage cellular renewal for a brighter and clearer complexion.

Steaming helps to unclog pores further and soften blackheads, preventing infection, irritation and future breakouts.

Combining warm steam with massaging promotes the circulation of the skin to enhance radiance and reduce puffiness and sagging. Also, your practitioner will use extraction on stubborn congested areas.

With ongoing facials, the treatment can also improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production.

Around 1 hour.

Chemical Skin Peels London Skin Peels

Skin Peels

Suitable for many different types of acne, we offer a range of skin peels for blemished skin, acne scarring and post-inflammatory pigmentation. Your practitioner may recommend one, or a series of Jessner, Obagi Blue or Salicylic acid skin peels. The peels can be layered or customised to suit your skincare needs and work well as part of any treatment programme with additional skin-boosting benefits.

The treatment begins with a consultation where your practitioner will assess your skin to decipher your skin conditions and the best course of treatment.

Certain peels like Cosmelan or Enerpeel may require skin preparation with the use of at-home products in the lead up to your appointment. Your practitioner will prescribe a list of recommended products that will be suitable for you or provide you with the appropriate preparation kit.

If we’re treating you with a Cosmelan peel, we’ll require you to use a prepping de-pigmentation kit before your initial treatment to prepare your skin for the peel.

During your treatment, your practitioner will double cleanse and prepare the skin by applying a barrier cream around sensitive areas and remove all sebum to aid penetration of the acids.

Following this, we will apply the peel of choice and leave it on for a few minutes before neutralising or removing the peel. A neutraliser will prevent the acid from working on the skin, whereas a removal wipe will leave the acid active on the skin to continue improving the complexion following treatment.

Chemical skin peels are suitable for anyone who is looking for overall skin rejuvenation and an improvement in skin tone and texture. Or, those who have:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Pigmentation and sun-spots
  • Mild actinic keratosis
  • Moderate wrinkles or fine lines
  • Rosacea
  • Large or open pores
  • Crepey skin

The duration of the treatment will depend on your custom needs. Some peels may be left on for longer, depending on your needs and tolerance to treatment. Typically, it’ll take around 30 minutes.

Chemical skin peels vary in strength and substance and are either superficial, medium or deep depending on your skin concerns and skin type.

The acids and other active compounds react with the skin and dissolve the outermost layers of the skin to reveal a fresher, clearer and brighter complexion. Chemical skin peels also promote collagen and elastin growth that will encourage the growth of healthier skin.
