The Harley Medical Group reveals the top beauty treatments favoured by editors during London Fashion Week

The Harley Medical Group is experiencing a surge in requests for non- surgical treatments in the wake of fashion’s biggest moment this year- London Fashion Week. Editors and guests attending shows are in preparation for media exposure as London is put in the spotlight again this year.

In light of the highly publicised event, experts at The Harley Medical Group’s London clinics have revealed the top non-surgical beauty treatments favoured by clients in the month of August. A perfect month to take a break, unwind and prepare for the fashion weeks, both women and men have been using the time to visit the clinics. Over the past 10 years, non-surgical treatments have shown a considerable rise in popularity, and the beauty savvy are undergoing subtle treatments to achieve that revitalised youthful look, such as the non surgical mini face lift.

Bernadette Harte, Senior Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group says: “With London Fashion Week on the horizon, and the fashion world poised for the busiest month of the year we have seen an increase in the number of men and women coming to the clinic for non-surgical treatments.

As time is limited, non-surgical treatments are the perfect option- quick and effective in creating that natural, fresh look desired by all. In particular skin peels are a revolutionary way of treating ageing skin, acne and sun damage. The procedure can also help the skin to appear smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter.”

Along with skin peels, The Harley Medical Group has recorded an increase in those seeking Dermal Fillers; they help ‘fill out’ and smooth lines and wrinkles especially around the eyes, nose, and mouth, creating a more youthful look. For those with little time, Botox treatment has become a popular option for aging skin and looks best one week after treatment, just in time for the fashion week of the year.
