The French Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a deeply placed stitch to reposition and lift sagging or droopy skin in the cheeks and jowls. It can also be used to lift the brows.
It is an effective treatment for those who would like a lift to rejuvenate the face and get rid of that tired look that you can be left with as the skin ages and loses elasticity. A major benefit is that the French Lift leaves small hidden scars, whereas undergoing surgery can leave significant visible scarring.
The most advanced facial tightening procedure perfected by Harley Street Skin. Facetite® gives an instant lift, and can tighten saggy skin on the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks, mouth and jowls. The procedure causes the skin to tighten immediately by warming the skin with a fine probe that is inserted into the fatty layer just under the skin. It does not remove tissue, but causes the skin to tighten up by 40% instantly. Within a few minutes you will have much tighter skin that looks and feels better. Although the results are instant there will be some swelling and bruising for about seven to ten days after the procedure. Over a period of three to six weeks, new collagen is produced so you will see a continuous improvement, with the final results twelve weeks post procedure.
FaceTite® is a minimally invasive treatment and a realistic alternative to a surgical facelift, less traumatic and giving a very natural result. Facetite® is performed under a local anaesthetic, so you avoid the risks associated with a general anaesthetic and minimise the recovery time. Because the treatment does not involve a general anaesthetic you can go home after the procedure. Results from FaceTite® will last up to about five years, similar to a mini Face Lift, then the skin will age naturally, depending on your genetics and lifestyle.
FaceTite® uses RF – Radio Frequency. RF or Radio frequency is used in MRI machines and many other medical treatments and has been used to treat patients for over 75 years. With a combination of FaceTite and NeckTite you will be able to achieve a full facelift effect.
As seen on This Morning, with Harley Street Skin
Fractora® can help to tighten saggy skin on the eyelids, face, neck, decollate and hands. The procedure uses a technology known as fractional radiofrequency. The skin is heated by placing a small handle against the skin. Radiofrequency energy is passed through a series of tiny bipolar pins, this heats the skin and causes tiny pin prick holes that the body naturally repairs. This results in tighter firmer, younger looking skin. Lines and wrinkles are filled out, superficial sun spots and thread veins disappear. Skin looks firmer and tighter.
Recovery is a week to ten days. Expect swelling and bruising for the first week. Results are seen at about ten days, they are stunning. You look fresher, firmer and younger, but still very natural. We are pleased to announce that Fractora® from Invasix has now received FDA approval.
The Suspension Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a deeply placed stitch to reposition and lift sagging or droopy skin in the cheeks and jowls and can also be used to lift the brows. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and takes about an hour to complete.
Lifting and tightening sagging skin. This is an effective treatment for those who would like a lift to rejuvenate the face and get rid of that tired or sad look that you can be left with as the skin ages and loses elasticity. A major benefit is that that you avoid going under the knife and it leaves no scarring unlike a surgical facelift.
The brow area looks smoother and more defined with frown lines visibly improved. The skin is tightened and lifted in the cheek and jowl area. The procedure results in a more refreshed and less tired look.

Expect some bruising and swelling for up to a week. The final results will be visible about six weeks following the procedure.
Here at Harley Street Skin we have developed and perfected the technique of using combined therapies to produce a stunning non-surgical ‘facelift’. This provides a real alternative to the traditional surgical facelift that is now regarded as a rather old-fashioned and unnecessarily drastic method of facial rejuvenation. With the No-Knife Facelift there’s no need to endure the long period of downtime, visible scarring and pain that goes with a surgical procedure and you’re guaranteed to get great natural looking results that work with and enhance your features, leaving you looking like a completely refreshed and rejuvenated version of the old you.
The No-Knife Facelift includes a combination of the following treatments*:
- Muscle relaxing injections to smooth out lines and balance the features
- Dermal fillers to enhance the cheeks and restore facial contours, replace lost volume in the tear trough areas beneath the eyes, gently restore volume in the lips and enhance the shape
- Laser resurfacing to improve the complexion and repair sun damage whilst tightening and rejuvenating the skin
- SmartLipo to tighten and smooth the jawline and sagging jowls
Expect a dramatic visible improvement from this range of treatments but the effect will still be very natural looking, a bit like turning the clock back ten years! Lines, folds and wrinkles will be noticeably diminished, signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation marks will disappear and the texture and tone of the skin will be drastically improved with a much fresher and younger appearance. Any signs of loose skin around the jawline and jowls will be tightened up and the jawline will be more defined to give a much younger looking profile.
Following laser resurfacing you may need to take up to a week off work whilst the skin heals. There is very little or minimal downtime needed following SmartLipo and most people can return straight to work after treatment. Both dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections can result in minor bruising and some swelling but this can be covered with mineral make-up and will quickly disappear.
The results will be visible for five years with top-ups of dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections required twice a year.
Fat Transfer Facial Rejuvenation*
This technique in facial rejuvenation means there’s no longer the need to go under the knife in order to dramatically reduce the signs of ageing. The treatment, known as the PRP Enriched Facelift, involves re-contouring the face using fat specially harvested from your own body which is then mixed with your own platelet rich plasma in order to enhance the effects of tissue repair. The treatment not only takes years off your face, it has the added bonus of taking around an inch of fat off your middle too!
Fat is harvested using Body Jet system to give the best fat retention rate possible. Clinical trials have shown the fat retention rate to be around 80%. It is then mixed with your own platelet rich plasma extracted using PRP Therapy. This enhances the grafting process by releasing growth factors that help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue so as well as replacing lost volume the treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production so skin appears plumper and more vibrant.
The procedure is a fast, effective and relatively painless alternative to the surgical facelift and can also be used for enhancing the breasts and other areas naturally.
Complete facial rejuvenation, sun damaged skin, all signs of ageing and acne or other types of scarring.
Expect visible and long-lasting results. Skin tone and texture is dramatically improved and the muscles and deeper structures of the face are tightened to produce a lifting effect. The blood supply and the skin’s ability to repair itself are improved so even the effects of smoking and sun damage can be repaired. The skin goes on improving over time, the regenerative process can continue to improve tissues for up to 18 months with the end results lasting for many years, then naturally ageing with time.
This is usually a one-off treatment, with minor balancing or adjustment after 2 to 4 months, but the procedure can be repeated at any time to maintain the effects, unlike surgical procedures, there is no limit to how many times this procedure can be done.
Expect swelling for the first week and bruising that can last a couple of weeks.
You lose fat from where you don’t want it and put it where you do!
