Our philosophy is that we don’t believe in ageing gracefully, we believe in fighting it all the way. We begin with a thorough analysis of the present condition of your skin and determine what your skin needs.
You will be guided through every step in the diagnostic process and together we will develop a customized program for your individual needs.
Skin is the largest, most delicate organ which has been protected since ancient times. Firstly, tackling skin concerns with herbal remedies led to prescribed products and eventually evolved to the use of the most innovative tools, and now “Chemexfoliation” which is the third most commonly performed non-invasive cosmetic procedure to date, after Botulinum toxin and Fillers!
Chemexfoliation is a medical procedure that makes use of chemical compounds specifically tailored to address your skin concerns. Highly influenced by the histological and structural regeneration of the skin it renews the epidermis and engineers its architecture, working from deep within the skin.
At The Harley Street Clinic, we take a slightly different approach when treating skin concerns. There is no one peel that could miraculously treat a wide range of skin concerns all at the same time.
Sure, you may have heard of cocktail peels, where depending on the skin concerns a range of acids are mixed together to treat the skin. However, not only has this been found to be ineffective as skin types vary but applying a mixed range of acids simultaneously over the face is associated with increased risks.
Depending on your skin type and your presenting skin condition(s) we will prescribe you with specific acids, never mixed but applied to the area(s) of concern only. This is a bespoke medical facial, tailored to your skin, with a specialised technique to reduce the associated downtime.
