NEW Dr Leah Non Surgical Eye Lift 

 We are extremely excited to announce that we are now offering a new plasma technology eye lift treatment at both our London and Loughton clinics. This quick and easy treatment reduces hooded heavy brows and tightens the skin on the upper eyelids which is usually very hard to treat without surgery. 

It works by ‘zapping’ the excess skin on the upper eyelid with a plasma current which removes the excess skin by a process called sublimation. Dramatic results can be achieved without the need for a scalp or knife.

Benefits: 

•Reduce heavy brows / saggy skin around the eyes (called 'non-surgical blepharoplasty')

•Treats wrinkles around the eye

•Permanent results  (usually after 5+ years)

•Quick procedure time ( 30 minutes)

•No injectable anaesthetic required

•No cutting of skin

•No stitches required

•Very low risk procedure (NO risk of blindness as there is with surgery)

•Minimal side effects and far less downtime than surgery 

•No thinning of the skin

•Significantly cheaper than surgery 

 

For maximum results we recommend 3 treatments 6 weeks apart and the total cost for the 3 treatments is £1650.

Watch our very own Dr Emily undergo the treatment! https://www.instagram.com/p/BQxfGL4AJIy/?taken-by=dr_leah_clinics&hl=en

Dr Leah Clinics is delighted to announce that we are now offering hair transplant surgery at both our London and Essex clinics.

Hair loss is extremely common, especially in men. Often referred to as male-pattern baldness it affects around half of all men by 50 years of age.  This means that 7.4 million men are losing their hair at any one time.  Thinning usually starts around the late twenties or early thirties and most men have some degree of hair loss by their late thirties. 

The main cause of hair loss is genetics and hormones followed by illness and trauma. Male pattern baldness only affects the top and front of the scalp, this is due to the follicles in this area being highly receptive to specific hormones that causes balding. Hair loss in females tend to be much less prevalent and is caused by a number of different factors including genetics, stress or various medical issues.

At the Dr Leah clinic we only work alongside the most high trained and qualified practitioners to ensure the highest quality treatments for our clients - which is why we have chosen to partner with one of the UK’s most experienced hair transplant surgeons, who has been performing hair transplant successfully since 1996 and was one of the new generation of doctors to learn strip micro graft hair transplant surgery and was first to introduce FUE,(follicular unit extraction) into the UK in 2003.

 Dr Leah Clinic welcomed its first hair transplant patient last month – Mr Colin Hunt from Chigwell, Essex. Mr Hunt’s main concern was sparse thinning hair on top of the scalp. The hair on the sides of the scalp were still prevalent meaning he was a great candidate for the procedure.

The FUT technique was used for Mr Hunt’s procedure, which is the most commonly used technique for patients and is seen as one of the most effective.

During treatment local anaesthetic was applied to the donor area (the sides of the head). Then under a microscope a thin strip of hairy scalp was taken and all follicular units separated. The area the strip was removed from was then stitched with absorbable stitches.

The recipient area (the area that hair will regrow) was then numbed and pinprick incisions made. The follicular unit grafts taken from the donor area (sides of the head) were then placed into the incisions with the whole procedure taking approximately 5-6 hours.

Hair should begin to grow in approximately 12 weeks with the full result visible 12 – 24 months.

 

Mr Hunt said “I was really surprised at how pain free the procedure was and with the team being so accommodating and friendly the time passed very quickly.  I felt very confident in Dr Rogers’s hands and can’t wait to see my new head of hair”

Dr Leah Totton, 28, has been recognised as one of the UK’s Ten Inspirational UK Entrepreneurs under the age of thirty by FreeOfficeFinder.com as they celebrate the UK’s young talent.

 

On hearing that she had been recognised, Dr Leah was delighted:

 

“I am delighted and honoured to be recognised in this way. There are so many inspirational young entrepreneurs in the UK, and to be grouped with them is fantastic. I am so pleased that the hard work that myself and my team have put into Dr Leah Cosmetic Skin Clinics has been appreciated in this way”

 

Dr Leah Totton won the BBC TV series The Apprentice in 2013 and subsequently opened two cosmetic skin clinics with her business partner Lord Alan Sugar. Dr Totton studied Medicine at the University of East Anglia, in Norwick, and qualified top of her year and with a distinction in medicine.  She was already practicing as a doctor in a busy London hospital A&E department when she applied to be on the BBC’s The Apprentice series.

 

Leah invested the £250,000 prize money from The Apprentice to establish her own cosmetic skin clinics, alongside Lord Sugar.  The first of the self-titled Dr Leah Clinic's was launched in Moorgate, Central London in 2014 and she opened a second clinic in Loughton, Essex in 2016.  Dr Leah Clinics offer the most innovative and contemporary aesthetic skin treatments.  Dr Leah herself is an award winning practitioner for Silhouette Soft skin lifts and the clinics offer a world-exclusive 3D bespoke fat-busting treatment. Dr Leah, is now a respected cosmetic skin specialist and is currently undertaking a Masters in Dermatology at the University of Cardiff, to expand her credentials in this field.

 

With so many young people excelling in business in the country, the FreeOfficeFinder.com felt that it was important to showcase talented individuals to inspire other young people into doing the same thing. There are so many people out there with business ideas who don’t have the confidence or knowledge of how to turn these ideas into reality. Their hope is that this list will hopefully inspire them to do so.

 

“Starting a business can be hard and very daunting, but I feel that putting together this list shows people that you are never too young to start or make a success of things. Business is a learning curve for people of all ages, so the earlier you get into it, the more you will learn”.

 

SaidNick Riesel, founder of FreeOfficeFinder, he continued

 

“We decided to feature Leah on the list because she has already achieved so much at a young age. She has gone on from winning the Apprentice to become hugely successful at something she is passionate about, which is a great lesson for people wishing to go into business.

The fact that she is taking a masters degree to further herself shows incredible ambition which is something that all successful business owners must have”.

Dr Leah Totton one of the UK’s leading aesthetics doctors has put together her top hints and tips for the time table of treatment you may be considering in the run up to your wedding.

My first tip is to plan in advance 

Most newly engaged couples will tell you that the first thing everyone says after “congratulations” and “let me see the ring” is “so when’s the wedding?”  In 1959 Brides Magazine recommended that couples set aside 2 months to prepare for their wedding[1]. In 2015 they now recommend with 12 months to go that you book your venue[2] (for many of the more popular venues lead times can be considerably longer).  Booking the initial consultation with a doctor who can give cosmetic skin advice should also sit high on the list of early ‘must do’s’, as treatments should be timed and co-ordinated so that they reach their maximum effectiveness on the big day.

Create a countdown for your wedding day beauty

Four months before the wedding

This is the best time for a High Intensity Focused Ultrasound also known as ‘3D SkinMed’, ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’.  It has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for face and neck.  3D SkinMed is a one-off treatment which will help you achieve tighter, firmer, lifted skin.  This is also a perfect precursor to a non-surgical face and neck lift.

Three months before the wedding

Have a Silhouette Soft treatment – a two phased non-surgical face and neck lift for brides (and their mums).  The initial skin lift is immediate, but the results are progressive and after three months, the body will react by producing its own collagen to rejuvenate the face.

Two months before the wedding

Embark on a series of 3D liposuction treatments to eliminate unwanted fat cells from the body safely, efficiently and non-invasively. We use targeted ultrasonic waves to destroy fat cells without harming any other cells in your body.   6-8 treatments, a week apart are recommend for maximum effect.

One month before the wedding

Your face will never be more photographed than during your wedding celebrations so a month before the big day is the best time to have your anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers to finesse the face and give it time to settle down.

The week before the wedding

Have a facial treatment to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, massage and tighten the skin so that it glows with health and vitality on the big day.  This will also tackle any last minute break outs brought about by nerves and stress.  You need to allow 48 hours for the skin to settle down after treatment and for the full effects to be appreciated.

I have also consulted with a couple of wedding experts to provide you with make-up and photography tips in advance of the big day… and on the day itself.

ü  Don’t leave things to chance…. Planning is everything.

ü  Book an appointment with your wedding photographer in advance to chat, share mood board images and plan how you want the story of your wedding portrayed

ü  Book an appointment with a make-up artist months before the wedding to plan your look

ü  Co-ordinate planning and timing of make-up and cosmetic skin treatments

ü  Have hair and make-up trials to ensure everything is just as you want it.

 

Sarah Brock one of the UK’s leading bridal make-up artists gives her top tips to maximise your smile on your wedding day:

 

ü  On the run-up to your wedding day, use a good lip balm regularly to ensure that your lips are in tip-top condition for your big day

ü  If you are worried about lipstick transferring on to your teeth, after you have applied all of your lip colours, place a finger in-between your lips to remove any excess.

ü  For long lasting lip colour on your wedding day, first apply lip liner all over the lip area. Then apply a few coats of lipstick, blotting with a tissue in between. Then apply a thin layer of lip gloss for a gorgeous, bridal pout!

Wedding Photographer Paul Webb also offers his top tips for beautiful smiles in wedding photographs:

 

ü  It is better if your wedding photographer can capture those natural moments of you interacting with your husband and wedding guests.

ü  Naturally smiling pictures are always better than those where people have to pose.

ü   Don’t say ‘cheese’ it stretches the mouth unnaturally; instead say words ending in ‘uh’ (yoga) it creates a more natural looking smile.

ü  Keep calm and enjoy your wedding day.  When  you relax those natural happy smiles will come  …naturally

Shirley (67), a mother of five, whose daughter recently married in Matching Church, Essex, felt more emotional than most mums as she helped with her daughter’s wedding preparations. Over the past 25 years she had had several challenges leaving her unsure if she would ever see her marry. 

In 1989, Shirley’s life took a dramatic turn, after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Six years later, in 1995, a subsequent tumour was diagnosed and yet another in 1999. Each time she was treated at The Royal Free Hospital, London, undergoing brain surgery to remove non-malignant tumours, followed by a course of radiotherapy. Thankfully her condition is in remission; however the treatment left Shirley with diminished confidence about her looks,

So despite much excitement about her daughters’ big day, Shirley was aware that she would be photographed numerous times and was keen to look her best, as she explained:

“I wanted to look fresh and more youthful for my daughter’s wedding.”

She consulted with me at Dr Leah Skin Cosmetic Clinic in London to discuss how we could help her to approach the event with confidence.    In fact we are seeing a rise in the number of patients like Shirley, who are seeking discrete and natural looking, anti-aging treatments – especially before milestone events such as wedding.  

Sagging in the mid-face, jowls and neck occurs as we get older and gravity takes its toll. This drooping of the skin ages our appearance and Botox and fillers are unable to tackle the lifting needed to counter this.   However, Silhouette Soft, an innovative and discrete anti-aging treatment is the only non-surgical option to lift the skin and defy gravity, and this is what we recommended to Shirley.”

Treatment is carried out under a small local anaesthetic, which is administered to the face immediately before the procedure. Once the face is numb fine threads are inserted just under the skin where they are held in place with bi-directional cones. These cones are positioned along the length of the threads and act as anchors. The tension in the threads, once gently tightened, work to lift the sagging skin- elevating the facial tissue immediately.  The threads are then absorbed by the body.

Even better, the results of the treatment continue to improve over the coming months. Before dissolving the cones on the threads stimulate the body to produce its own collagen, helping increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually.

The treatment takes under an hour, and the initial effect can be seen straightaway.

Ready for my close-up

As Shirley explained:

“I could see the lifting results immediately! My face felt tighter, and slightly tender for the next couple of days, but not painful”

And how did she look at the wedding?

“I didn’t tell my daughter I had had the treatment, but on the day of the wedding she kept saying ‘”Wow mum, you look amazing!’ My niece who hasn’t seen me in several years commented that she ‘hoped to look as well as I do when she is my age, as I never seem to look any older!’”

“I am very happy with my Silhouette Soft treatment. I knew I could trust Dr Leah to do a great job; she’s brilliant! I feel really good about myself at the minute, I look forward to enjoying the new lease of life my refreshed image has given me.

The wedding photographs show Shirley smiling with confidence and glowing with happiness, knowing that she had defied her condition to see her daughter’s wedding and overcome her concerns about her diminished appearance.

 

A typical Silhouette Soft treatment consists of four threads and costs around £1,500. Treatment is offered subject to the clinician confirming a patient’s suitability.
