Healing the invisible damage in the skin on a daily basis is the fundamental principle behind the original 111SKIN Reparative range, and today we have five ranges that address specific concerns that are expressed by patients within Dr. Yannis' clinic. He is still heavily involved with new product development based on his clinical observations and medical experience providing patients with the best of 111 Harley St. within their home.
