*Disclaimer: Please note that treatment results may vary from individual to individual.

The Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System is a new and highly effective way to refresh your appearance and tighten loose skin, without the need for needles or surgery. Pellevé safely treats facial wrinkles and loose skin with virtually minimal pain, no anesthesia and minimal downtime.

A conductive gel is applied to your face, Pellevé then delivers constant, gradual energy to the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layers come together. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep inside the skin, causing them to contract stimulating the growth of new collagen over time. This results in tighter, firmer skin.

How many treatments will you need?*

Many people see the result immediately after just one treatment, with lasting improvement for up to six months as the skin produces new collagen. Additional treatments may improve results, we will recommend the best course of treatment for you at your consultation, but in our experience, a course of six treatments, two weeks apart gives the best results.

The results?*

Because no anesthesia is used and any swelling is minor, there is minimal downtime*. Mild swelling and redness may occur, but this usually goes away within a few hours to a day.

Many people see the result immediately after just one treatment with tighter, firmer skin, with lasting improvements for up to six months as the skin produces new collagen. We advise one treatment every three months for those wishing to maintain the results after the initial course.

*Disclaimer: Please note that treatment results may vary from individual to individual.

Forma is an advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment providing anti-ageing improvements on skin tone and texture, for a more radiant appearance.

The treatment can be used in areas that have fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone, with the most common areas of treatment being the lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, cheeks, mouth and neck.

Forma can help to tighten saggy skin on the eyelids, face, neck, décolleté and hands. 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. Special protocols using Forma treatments have been developed by Dr. Khan, that can significantly improve the appearance of stretch marks.

After treatment*

You may be slightly red, but there’s not really any downtime witht Forma, moisturiser and makeup may be applied immediately after each treatment and its back to daily life.

How many treatments will you need?*

The number of treatments is typically 6 sessions, once weekly and may vary individually. Dry and thin skin may require up to 8 sessions, but for many 4 sessions are giving good results.
Asian skin that is more fibrotic and may require 8-10 sessions.
Single maintenance sessions may be needed every 1-3 months to retain results.

The results?*

Tightening – Skin tightening is the most visible around the chin and jawline, nose to mouth lines , cheeks and around the eyes.
Wrinkles and lines – Fine lines respond better than deep wrinkles.
Skin quality – Most patients report an improvement in skin quality, specifically glowing and radiant skin surfaces

Ouch factor*

Slight discomfort at the beginning of the treatment, this sensation fades very soon as the electrodes warm up.

All about … Viora*

Here at Harley Street Skin, we are able to offer Viora, a state of the art, non-surgical treatment which is safe and painless. Reaction combines the mechanism of advanced Radio Frequency (RF) energy and vacuum therapy that works with the body’s natural regeneration process, to deliver safe and efficient treatments.

Simultaneously, the unique vacuum therapy maximises the penetration of Radio Frequency energy in the treatment area and also increases local blood circulation, stimulates lymphatic drainage and assists in the shrinkage of fat cell volume.

The benefits can be used for a variety of conditions and a consultation with our clinicians will help you to pinpoint the best treatment for you. Some of the benefits include:

- Skin tightening for jowls, cheeks and forehead

- Cellulite reduction for thighs, buttocks, love handles and abdomen

- Skin rejuvenation (including skin lightening for sun damage)

- Hair removal

The cellulite and body contouring treatments have generated exceptional results, as early as the first treatment. The skin tightening procedure has also been very successful in improving the appearance of deep folds, wrinkles and sagging skin.

The procedure*

During the initial consultation, your practitioner will perform a test spot procedure to ensure suitability for treatment and determine the optimum treatment settings. Depending on the intended application, gel or oil will be applied to the treated area and the relevant applicator will be used to determine comfort and skin response. After the evaluation is complete and assuming suitability for treatment, the practitioner will schedule the treatment course.

During the treatment, you will experience dual sensations of hot and cold temperatures on the surface of your skin. The integrated skin cooling mechanism ensures that the temperature of your skin is maintained throughout the treatment duration.

FAQs How many treatments will I need?*

The number of treatments depends more on the actual procedure, and not the body part. For example, skin tightening on the face is between 3-6 treatments, with some patients even seeing results after the first session. ReLift, a unique protocol that is for the neck and jowl line is up to 9 treatments. Cellulite and body contouring treatments are between 6-8 treatments.

How does it combat cellulite?*

The deep tissue heating, which takes place as part of the procedure, increases the metabolic breakdown in the superficial fat layer and helps diffuse oxygen in the cells.

At the same time, the vacuum therapy intensifies the treatment to facilitate deeper penetration of heat, stimulate lymphatic drainage and enhance the elasticity of the membrane between the fat cells.

The treatment is suitable for multiple areas of the body, including the buttocks, thighs, abdomen and underarms. A course of six sessions is recommended for optimal results.

How do the facial skin treatments work?*

Simultaneously, the unique vacuum therapy maximises the penetration of Radio Frequency energy in the treatment area and also increases local blood circulation, stimulates lymphatic drainage and assists in the shrinkage of fat cell volume.

What results will I see?*

Overall, you will see that there is a minimised appearance of lumpy skin, improved skin texture and a circumference reduction. Although it is important to remember that response to treatment may vary from person to person.

How long do the results last?*

What’s the cost of the treatment?*

Treatment starts at £200 for one session. After an initial consultation we will be able to advise you on the number of treatments you will need.

CO2 Laser*

*Disclaimer: Please note that treatment results may vary from individual to individual.

CO2 Laser is a fractional Co2 laser system. Using the latest technology, Co2 lasers are the most powerful systems on the market and they’re producing remarkable results. The Co2 laser is able to stimulate rejuvenation by targeting small areas from a small wand–like device that is passed over the treatment area. The laser creates thousands of microscopic spots and by hitting only small areas in depth during treatment it eliminates the usual side effects of laser resurfacing such as pain, scabs and swelling. CO2 Laser works without removing the entire skin surface so skin redness after treatment only lasts a few days.

CO2 Laser’s fractional DOT technology is quick and precise – allowing us to treat the whole face and neck in about half an hour. The laser also heats the dermis which stimulates new collagen production. As new skin cells develop the face will become smoother, firmer and younger looking.

During the treatment the high energy laser damages the outer layers of the epidermis, which peel away as the skin heals. The laser also heats the dermis which stimulates new collagen production. As new skin cells develop the face will become smoother, firmer and more youthful in appearance.

Recommended For*

Sun damaged skin, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation marks on the face and hands and décolleté. It’s a treatment that is effective for all skin types although care is required for those who like tanning often.

Recovery Time*

You’ll most likely be able to see an improvement in skin tone and texture as soon as the redness fades after one treatment. As the laser stimulates collagen production you’ll see a progressive improvement in the texture and smoothness of the skin over several months. Wrinkles and lines will be reduced as well as acne scars and dark marks.

How Often*

Depending on the degree of damage to the skin and the results required we will recommend a treatment program that suits you. Most people require 3 – 5 treatments, spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart.

Is Treatment Painful?*

You can expect to feel a stinging sensation that only lasts a fraction of a second. Compared with traditional Co2 laser treatments, the DOT method has significantly reduced after treatment pain. There’s no need for any pain relieving injections with CO2 Laser however an anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment for sensitive skin types.

Recovery Time*

Post-treatment redness only lasts a few days and can be covered with cosmetics. Some slight swelling may occur for a few days following treatment. It is important to protect your skin with SPF 30 after the treatment and we will recommend the correct creams to ensure your skin is properly moisturised.

Facetite*

Facetite gives an instant lift and can tighten saggy skin on the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, jowls and neck. The procedure uses radio-frequency technology that thermally targets subcutaneous tissue and the skin, resulting in fibrous tightening and repair of the tissue.

It causes the skin to tighten immediately by warming the skin with a fine probe that is inserted into the layer just under the skin. It does not remove tissue, but causes the skin to tighten up by 10% instantly. Within a few minutes you will have much tighter skin that looks and feels better. The repair and re-modelling process takes three-six months to show up to 40% skin and tissue tightening.

How many treatments will you need?*

It is a one-off minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia or light sedation – which allows you to resume your routine shortly after, although wearing a compression garment is required.

Dr. Khan has developed effective treatment protocols using a combination treatment with Facetite for malar festoons, which present as puffy swellings under the eyes and are not treatable with surgery.

The Results?*

Over a period of three to six weeks, new collagen is produced so you will see a continuous improvement, with the final results six to twelve months post 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.

Combining Facetite with other skin tightening procedures may be advised by your doctor – for older, more undamaged skin.
