Silhouette Soft® is one of our newest treatments, and it's already proven very popular with our clients. This procedure goes by many names (including 'thread lift', 'puppet facelift', and 'one stitch facelift'), but no matter what you call it, the details are the same: our clinicians use absorbable threads to lift your sagging skin and give your face a more youthful look.

Of course, no two clients are alike, and we only recommend Silhouette Soft® in certain cases; a thread lift is most effective when used to treat the skin around the cheeks, neck, and lower jaw. For other areas, anti-wrinkle injections (a.k.a. Botox) may be a more suitable solution; facial fillers are another popular alternative.

So, is Silhouette Soft® right for you? It all depends on the results you want to achieve. The best way to be sure is to visit the Dr Leah Clinic (located near Liverpool Street) for a consultation session with one of our doctors. Click here to get in touch and book your consultation today!

In recent years, laser hair removal has become the most popular choice for people who want to eliminate unwanted body hair. The treatment uses a laser to heat and effectively destroy hair follicles in the treated area without affecting the surrounding cells or any other follicles.

But even with the widespread success and popularity of laser treatments, the experts who staff our London cosmetic clinic are still sometimes asked whether or not the treatment is safe. In today's blog post, we will put this question to bed once and for all.

In a nutshell: yes, laser hair removal is safe, as long as the treatment is administered by a qualified clinician. Here at Dr Leah Clinics, we use a laser treatment called Soprano ICE, which uses award-winning technology to permanently remove your unwanted hair. It is the latest version of the renowned Soprano hair removal laser, and more importantly, clinical tests have shown that Soprano ICE is completely safe. It is also pain-free, and suitable for all skin types.

As with any treatment, some Soprano ICE patients do experience side effects (including redness and itchiness in the treatment area), but these are quite minor and usually subside shortly afterwards. We cannot vouch for other clinics and the treatments that they use, but we have enough confidence in our own methods to say that, yes, laser hair removal is completely safe for both male and female patients.

Botox

Botox is the most popular anti-wrinkle treatment in the world, and quite possibly the most popular cosmetic treatment in general. It is an incredibly effective means of smoothing out wrinkles and achieving a more youthful appearance; with that said, Botox isn't right for everyone, and in this blog post, we will aim to answer some of the questions that people most commonly ask about this treatment.

Q: What is Botox?
A: 'Botox' is short for botulinum toxin, a naturally-occurring protein that, when injected into the face, causes the facial muscles to relax. This smooths out wrinkles and reduces the signs of ageing.

Q: What are the side effects of Botox?
A: The most common side effect is a mild bruising on the injection site. Patients may also experience some headaches after the treatment, but these tend to subside within 24 hours.

Q: How long does Botox last?
A: The procedure itself takes about 30 minutes. The results will last for 3-4 months; after this period has elapsed, patients may come back to the clinic for another Botox treatment.

Q: How much does Botox cost?
A: This depends on the clinic; if you visit the Dr Leah Botox clinic in London, a 1-area treatment will cost you £199.

Q: How old do you have to be to get Botox?
A: This is a controversial issue, and once again, the answer depends on which clinic you visit. The Dr Leah clinic never administers anti-wrinkle injections to teenagers, and we always recommend a consultation session before deciding on a particular treatment. The best time to get a Botox treatment is when you notice that frown lines and other 'dynamic' lines are becoming permanent, which usually occurs in a person's early 30s.

Q: Are there any alternatives to Botox?
A: Yes. You may prefer to use facial fillers to smooth wrinkles and achieve that plumper, more youthful look; alternatively, if you don't like injections, our Dermaroller and microdermabrasion treatments offer noticeable rejuvenation without any needles.
