Harley Street Cosmetic surgeon launches innovative skin care range

While the Greek economy may be in melt down – the lovely ladies who lunch in London are buying up the whole new skincare range from cosmetic surgeon Yannis Alexandrides (pictured below) – even though it costs far more than gold per once.dr-yannis-alexandrides-small.jpg

So Elixir went along to investigate at a reception held in the private wine tasting room in Harrod’s.
The cute Yannis and his lovely wife Eva hosted with tea and canapes and explained the science behind 111 SKIN – named after his clinic at 111 Harley Street in London at a skin masterclass for his clients;
Well its nicely packaged which helps.  But I discover it contains some very special ingredients one of which Yannis ‘discovered’ while working with his cosmetic surgery patients. This is a special sponge that is put on the wound to speed up healing. But the main formulation was developed to help stop the skin of astronauts ageing while in space.  So anyone thinking of going on one of those first trips into space any day soon you should be warned that you really may come back older than you thought would would!
There are a total of eight products in the range (pictured);

111 SKIN is the culmination of Dr. Alexandrides’ long standing  commitment to helping his patients defy the signs of ageing with the space scientists’ expertise in discovering ingredients that limit the effect of environmental damage on skin – whether in space, high altitude or urban conditions. The main active ingredients were developed by Bulgarian space scientists for their astronauts.As the largest organ of the body and its main protector, skin already has a difficult task. If we add common environmental stresses – UV rays, wind, pollution and free radicals – that job becomes more challenging and the cumulative effect is ageing, lacklustre skin.
Tested in extremes of space and deep sea; proven in extremes of daily life.111 SKIN targets the problem on a cellular level, complementing your body’s defence system by using a patent pending formula, NAC Y2. This formula combines NAC , Vitamin C and Escin. NAC and Vitamin C are the essential building blocks that increase Glutathione, the most vital antioxidant in our cells that is responsible for protecting skin from environmental extremes. Escin, another potent antioxidant, increases blood circulation, promotes stronger collagen production and helps transport NAC Y2 and Vitamin C directly to cells. Together, these powerful ingredients detoxify, hydrate and regenerate skin cells, working from within to strengthen skin and fight damaging environmental elements. When used daily, skin becomes younger looking, more supple and more radiant.
The key product in the range is the Y Theorem Nac Y2 Facial Repair Serum (£190 for 30m) which sinks deep into the skin.  It has a powerful combination of the NAC Y2 formula with Aminocaproic Acid, hydrolyzed Collagen and 20 key amino acids which specifically boost collagen production, helping to increase cell generation and skin elasticity.
We also tried the Facelift Day Cream and loved that too (£130 for 50ml).
Although its expensive a little goes a long way with this cream.  Its exclusively on sale at Harrods currently and also through 111 Harley Street.  We loved it!
