Treating lines and wrinkles often requires a combination approach, ongoing maintenance and prevention measures. The range of treatments available at 111 Harley St. ease lines and wrinkles by limiting expressive movement, restoring your skin’s function, resurfacing, and accelerating the growth of the two essential proteins that are responsible for a youthful appearance. Our practitioners, doctors or nurses will prescribe a bespoke maintenance product prescription to optimise your results and improve overall skin health..
Through resurfacing the skin, the iPixel treatment is designed to improve the quality and texture of the skin by inducing collagen production. The laser treatment will also encourage new elastin to build up in the treated area.
Your consultation will determine your suitability for treatment.
The nurse will apply a numbing cream to minimise discomfort during treatment. We will configure the depth depending on the area and concern, and the device will make a few passes over your skin, delivering bursts of energy.
After the iPixel treatment, you may notice square formations with tiny pinprick dots on the skin. The nurse will apply a topical serum to minimise these marks.
The fractional ablative laser treatment delivers precise beams of energy in a pixel-size formation to target specific cells. The surrounding cells remain intact, which speeds up healing. The heat from the energy destroys the injured or damaged cells and stimulates collagen production to remodel and fill in the area with new healthy cells.
Most patients require 4-8 sessions. One session every 4-6 weeks depending on the severity of the skin concern.
Numbing cream is applied for 20 minutes, followed by the treatment, which takes approximately 30 minutes.
By exfoliating the skin, chemical skin peels help to speed up the skin cell renewal cycle and remove the outermost layer of the skin to reveal a smoother skin surface. Our Enerpeel EL is particularly effective for reducing superficial lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
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:
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.
Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment that enables deeper penetration of essential antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to counteract wrinkle-causing free radicals and keep the skin supple. This vitamin infusion treatment will rejuvenate the face and décolletage area by encouraging new collagen production and healthier, younger-looking skin with softened lines.
Mesotherapy is an injectable treatment that delivers a custom combination of skin-enhancing ingredients to your complexion.
During your consultation, we will discuss your skin concerns to determine which formulation the nurse will administer through your Mesotherapy treatment. It will usually contain a blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamins and amino acids.
Before your treatment, we may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin.
Through a series of fine injections, a bespoke blend of peptides, growth factors and antioxidants are delivered into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin) from between 1-4mm beneath your skin to improve skin quality and function.
This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes – 1 hour.
The skin’s barrier function plays a vital role in protecting your skin from environmental aggressors such as pollutants, UV damage and irritants. When working optimally, your skin counteracts the harmful free radical damage that scavenges your healthy skin cells. However, with natural ageing, sun damage and other external forces, your skin cell barrier function weakens.
Lipids made up of cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acid form the barrier to prevent microrganisms and irritants entering the skin and protect it from Transepidermal water loss. When the skin barrier is weak, the skin can become dry, irritated and inflamed.
Mesotherapy is one way to encourage the restoration of your skin cell barrier function and restore your natural moisturising factors, to help bring your skin back to optimal health.
With over 60 different ingredient combinations, we can adapt the Mesotherapy to your skin’s needs. With an efficient transportation system and a surge in skin-loving ingredients, skin cell function improves, and the skin repair barrier becomes more resilient to environmental aggressors and other ageing factors.
Generally, a patient will need around ten sessions to see optimal results. The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s skin concerns.
These sessions are usually weekly for the first month, every two weeks over the second month, and sporadically from then onwards depending on how your skin responds to treatment.
Botox is one of the most reliable and effective ways to treat wrinkles caused by expressive movement like the bunny lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines. The injectable treatment will inhibit the movement of these muscles so that the surface skin smoothes out.
Otherwise known as the ‘Nefertiti lift’, Botox can also soften wrinkles on the neck and chest area through relaxing the muscles and providing a lifting effect to the skin.
The process begins with a consultation where we will discuss your reason for treatment and determine whether you are a suitable candidate.
The practitioner will make a series of injections to administer the substance. We can apply a topical anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. The unit will vary depending on the size of the area and the severity of the concern. You may feel a very slight scratch as the injections enter the skin.
In some cases, the nurse may inject a lower dosage than initially expected – this is standard practice when treating forehead wrinkles, particularly if you have a small forehead. It is essential to assess how your muscles react to the treatment to avoid eyebrow or eyelid drooping. Your nurse will discuss a follow-up appointment to administer the rest of the Botox.
Botox treats wrinkles by targeting the underlying muscle that wrinkles the overlying skin. It restricts the contraction of the muscle, so the overlying skin appears smooth. By inhibiting this movement, the toxin can create many other positive aesthetic effects or have health benefits.
It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect of Botox depending on the size of the area treated and the condition. For Botox to the masseter, it can take four weeks, and calf muscles can take six weeks before you see results.
The permanency varies from patient to patient, but usually, Botox starts to wear off after around 12 weeks. Its longevity also depends on the strength of the muscle.
Dermal fillers work well on wrinkles that are static and have not responded well to Botox. Fillers can rejuvenate the face and décolletage to smooth and fill deeper lines and wrinkles and provide structural support for the face.
As the skin can become dry with ageing, fillers that contain hyaluronic acid are particularly effective because they give the skin an essential moisture boost which helps to fill out bothersome lines like lipstick lines and nasolabial lines.
Approximately 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of areas. Numbing cream will require an additional 20 minutes to apply before treatment.
You may experience redness, bruising and swelling following your treatment which should subside within 1-3 days.
Filler dissolves naturally over time. Your aesthetician will discuss the associated risks and side effects with you during your consultation.
Other side effects and risks include:
Dermal fillers are non-permanent with results lasting between 4-9 months depending on your metabolism and the type of filler. Lip fillers tend to break down slightly faster, lasting between 3-6 months. Some filler types offer more permanency, lasting up to a year. Longevity varies from patient to patient.
You may experience swelling and bruising around the injection site which should subside with a week.
The Dermapen causes small micro-injuries that encourages the healing process and boosts collagen and elasticity levels. By triggering the synthesis of a new skin matrix, this treatment helps to tighten the skin, while subtly plumping out fine lines with the new collagen. The treatment also enhances penetration and the rejuvenating effects of any anti-ageing products used after treatment. For optimal results, we combine Dermapen with PRP- an injectable treatment that rejuvenates the skin.
The Dermapen treatment usually begins with the application of a topical numbing cream. Using a hand-held pen-like device, the nurse will then make several passes over the entire face.
The collagen inducing Dermapen creates virtually invisible micro-injuries in the skin that ignite the body’s healing and regenerative processes. This influx of collagen and elastin and release of growth factors results in an improvement of overall skin smoothness, suppleness, and strength.
Additionally, the micro-channels allow for optimal absorption of active ingredients to enhance their results and increase their efficiency.
Immediately after the treatment, you may notice tiny pinpricks of blood. The nurse will usually pat the face down after which point; the skin will no longer draw blood.
Your skin may be red for up to 24 hours and will gradually resolve throughout the following week. It may also feel a little rough, warm and dry for the first couple of days after your treatment and may begin to flake.
We recommend 4-6 treatment sessions. Every four weeks.

I have attended 111 Harley St for many years as a patient of Dr Yannis Alexandrides mainly for Botox and fillers although I also had a mini face lift about 3 years ago. I have been delighted with the treatment that I have received and would recommend Dr Yannis unreservedly to anyone. The whole atmosphere of 111Harley St is very professional and reassuring. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.Wendy Howard
I really think highly of the aesthetic judgement of the nurse in 111Harley street as I received non-surgical rhinoplasty there. It’s very natural, not exaggerated. And the service there is excellent! It’s friendly to foreign customer since Miss Bonnie is a brilliant and patient interpreter.Yihan
I was there to do the Fraxel laser treatment. It did help to repair and restore my damaged skin from suffering acnes for many years. I have recommend a few friends to 111 Harley St. and myself will definitely continue to do the session every half year.Ruby
