Editor’s Pick: 111Skin’s Y Theorem Repair Serum

by Charles Manning

What: A luxurious skin serum that significantly boosts collagen production, supports cell regeneration and improves the elasticity of the skin.

Who: Top UK cosmetic surgeon Dr. Yannis Alexandrides developed the products that became 111Skin to help his patients’ skin heal after trauma, giving them complimentary in-office treatments post surgery for more effective results and improved healing time. As demand for his original serum (the one profiled here) grew, Dr. Alexandrides and his wife Eva worked together to create the 111Skin brand, which today creates multiple products across 5 different ranges.

Dr. Yannis Alexandrides MD

Why: Working with space scientists who researched the acceleration of ageing in astronauts, Dr. Yannis wanted to produce a product which could induce skin’s own reparative processes to alleviate scarring and inflammation, and protect against environmental pollutants. The formula included NAC Y2, a trio of actives with superior antioxidant capabilities, one of which stimulates the production of Glutathione – the body’s most powerful intracellular antioxidant. The result is instant hydration, effective volume enhancement, and a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
