It's not every day that skin care is formulated by a plastic surgeon to prevent and help treat problems that traditionally require clinical intervention. 111PEAU was designed to create unfiltered confidence in everyone from ordinary people to models, and it delivers.
My first impression of 111SKIN came from their incredibly popular concentrates. You're looking to prevent fine lines, The Firming Concentrate from 111SKIN has been highly recommended by friends and experts. The visible results have been spectacular, and I couldn't wait to try more.

Named after the address of his clinic of London, Yannis Alexandrides, MD, explains that 111SKIN is the by-product of his experience as a plastic surgeon. After 20 years of practice, he wanted to accelerate the healing process of patients' skin following surgical and non-surgical treatments. "I wasn't satisfied with what was available to surgeons at the time, so I set out to find more effective healing solutions," he explains. "I met two scientists who were involved in a European space program and oversaw astronaut wellness, creating foods and supplements to be consumed in space."
In space, the skin is exposed to intense cosmic radiation without the filtering effect of the atmosphere we have on Earth, making it a challenging environment for skin aging. "These scientists had a wealth of knowledge about how to prevent skin aging in the most extreme environments. So I decided to collaborate with them to create an all-new proprietary formula: the NAC Y healing complex.2? says Alexandride. "It proved so effective that my patients were looking for the products for everyday use. With my wife Eva, we decided to create a small skin care line, starting with just eight products, and 111SKIN was born."
111SKIN creates products designed to help skin heal and ensures that the formulas are as active and effective as possible. "Our breakthrough complexes are also what set us apart," says Alexandrides. "Our surgically inspired skin care was created for all skin types, problems, tones, ages and genders, so it's really for everyone. I see a wide variety of patients from all different backgrounds in my clinic, and the line was created to work for each of their unique needs."
