With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
Isn't it dreadful when someone tells you that you look 'tired'? There's nothing worse. Unless, of course, you've been told that on a day when, actually, you aren't particularly. That is usually an indication that the look has become more of a permanent disposition.
Well, Harley Street Skin is proud to offer a minimally invasive solution to this very problem. You can now look nipped, tucked and wide-awake using only some of the aesthetics industry's biggest breakthrough technology. Let us introduce you to the Wide Awake (WAF) Facelift...
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
The WAF Lift aims to plump, lift and restore the contours to the face and can even boost skin tone and firmness when combined with Angel PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma therapy) and Dermaroller. Forget the old fashioned facelifts of yesteryear; the WAF Lift can be performed in just under an hour, having you back at home the very same day.
Facial rejuvenation has seen an amazing evolution over the last couple of years. Once upon a time it was all about lifting, stretching and tightening the slack skin, but now, having a facelift is all about looking refreshed and revitalized. Obtaining the natural look, and concealing the fact that any intervention has taken place at all.
The Wide Awake Facelift achieves just this in less than an hour, swapping the surgical scalpel for absorbable, collagen-stimulating threads. During the cutting edge WAF procedure, these ultra fine threads are injected into sagging areas of the cheeks and lower face to form a trellis effect, lifting the skin up to hold it in place.
Wide Awake Facelifts may also be combined with stimulating Angel PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma therapy to release growth factors for tissue renewal) and Dermaroller (microneedling treatment to improve skin tone and boost collagen) making it ideal for those with lost volume in the cheeks, a sagging jawline and a droopy brow.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
WAF Lifts make use of absorbable threads which are injected into multiple areas of the cheeks and lower face, forming a trellis for the skin to be hoisted into a new, more taut position. These threads hold the skin in place, leave no scars whatsoever and offer immediate results.
The resulting lift gives the face a much more rested, youthful look with a noticeable reduction in any fine lines or wrinkles. The procedure is so minimally invasive that it is done under only the assistance of local anaesthetic.
The procedure offers optimum results when combined with Angel PRP and Dermaroller therapy to boost collagen production and improve generalised skin tone. The Angel PRP (platelet-rich plasma) procedure involves drawing blood from the arm, separating out the platelets and then re-injecting them into the skin. This releases growth factors which help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. Dermaroller then helps to refresh the skin further through microneedling - a process which creates superficial damage to the skin, activating a healing response. This in turn also boosts collagen levels, thickens ageing skin and treats fine lines, scars, and uneven skin tone.
WAF lifts are perfect for those that don't quite feel ready for a full surgical facelift.
They will give a relaxed and lifted look, and therefore are suitable for those with little pockets of loose skin, lost volume in the cheeks and a general sagging of the jawline and/or the brow.
In addition to fantastic lift, you can expect to see a significant boost to skin tone, softened facial lines and a remarkable improvement to the plumpness of the cheeks.
Final results of a WAF Lift can last up to 4 years. You will see lifted, plumped and restored facial volume immediately after your procedure, however best results are seen gradually over a 3 month period, as the skin tightens and new collagen is formed.
The Wide Awake Facelift is a 60 minute procedure, using only local anaesthetic. It offers immediate visible results, and absolutely no scarring. Results of your WAF will continue to improve over the following three months as new collagen is formed.
Side effects of the WAF include minor bruising, swelling, tenderness and slight sensitivity in the treated area. Patients will also experience a sensation of tightness in the face, which will subside once inflammation has reduced. This will likely take between 5-7 days.
Invasive surgery and months of recovery time can be a thing of the past with the WAF Lift, with downtime sitting usually between the range of 3-5 days, although there may be some residual swelling and bruising beyond this point.
None of this is recovery time is spent in hospital however, as the added benefit of the WAF is that it only requires the use of local anaesthesia. This means that not only is it far more cost-effective (as it does not require an anaesthetist), but you are free to return to the comfort of your own home that very same day!
Patients typically feel comfortable returning to work anywhere between days 3 and 7, although this is entirely down to personal preference and patients should work to their own timeline, and listen to their bodies when thinking of returning to the workplace.
