Dr Leah Totton gives Closer the dos and don'ts of the ever popular cosmetic enhancement treatment

http://www.closeronline.co.uk/2015/11/lip-fillers-everything-you-need-to-know  

Kylie Jenner has done for lips what J Lo and Kim Kardashian did for bums. Instagram's infiltration of pouty seflies has come hand-in-hand with reality star Kylie Jenner's transformation from girl-next-door to global style icon and largely responsible for that shift, are her famous lips.

Despite putting her growing pout down to 'clever make up', Kylie eventually admitted to getting temporary fillers- which even started a global #Kyliejennerchallenge selfie online.

And Dr Leah's clinic alone saw a 70% increase in lip filler enquiries in the 24 hours following Kylie Jenner's confession in May this year.

The temporary cosmetic treatment can last anywhere between 6 to 18 months and cost anything from £300 to £600.

How much do lip fillers cost?

"Fillers usually cost £300-£370 depending on which practitioner does them- I charge £370.

Be very wary of discounted prices or group deals on lip filler - I have had to correct some terrible outcomes when clients have had their lips done at cheap rates & the practitioner has then not been responsive to correct the issues."

How does the process work?

"You are consulted by a cosmetic doctor or nurse practitioner and together you decide on the 
 and shape you would like, consent is obtained, photographs and lip measurements taken, anaesthetic cream is applied and when the lips are numb (normally 30 mins later) you will have a series of injections which tend to only take a few minutes.

"You may be given a cool compress after the procedure to reduce swelling / potential for bruising, before aftercare is explained and you are normally reviewed two weeks later."

What do the dermal fillers consist of?

"Lip filler is a naturally occurring hyaluronic acid gel. My lip filler of choice also contains a built-in anaesthetic which makes the procedure less uncomfortable."

Does it hurt?

"It is uncomfortable but I inject the lips from the outside making it much more bearable."

What should I look for in a doctor/ clinic?

"Look for a well known and respected doctor or clinic that you trust."

Are there any side effects?

"There's potential for temporary bruising, swelling, lumps and asymmetry but these side effects are minimised by going to a reputable cosmetic doctor."

And we couldn't help but ask a few questions about the famous (and perhaps not so sweet) Lord Sugar himself.

What's it like being in business with Lord Alan Sugar?

"It's great, he has a lot of opinions which are always interesting."

Does he ever visit the clinic?

"Yes, but not for treatment!"

Do you think he'd ever have a touch of botox?

"I haven't managed to persuade him yet.."

Who do you think will win the 2015 series of The Apprentice?

"I think there are some strong candidates and I'd love to see another female winner."

I am delighted that Dr Leah Clinic, London are one of the first UK clinics to offer the BRAND NEW 3D SKINMED “non-surgical face and neck lift”.

3D SkinMed works by using HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) to stimulate the deep support structures in the skin resulting in lifting and tightening effect for the face and neck. Giving better definition to the face and improving sagging skin.

This one off treatment is suitable for anyone who wishes to tighten or lift with no cuts to the skin, no potential for scarring and NO DOWNTIME!

The results will develop over the course of 2-3 months with continued improvement for up to 6 months, overall result lasting approximately 1-2 years.

As a cosmetic industry expert I was invited to attend the recent star studded launch for this innovative treatment and I can definitely say this is treatment is already proving a hit with glamourous celebrities such as Dawn Ward from the Real Housewives of Cheshire who are looking for alternative treatments to surgery, but demand dramatic results.

So if you’re looking for a facelift or neck lift without the surgery and would like to book your FREE consultation today and take advantage of our special introductory prices follow the link: http://www.drleah.co.uk/enhancement-treatments/hifu-face-neck-lift

This month in my Evening Standard Column, where I am the resident cosmetic medical expert, I discussed treatments for facial sagging.

A large number of patients who visit my Moorgate Clinic do so to improve the “pulled down” look of their face and jowls or their neck sagging.

Over time, as gravity and collagen loss take their toll, the skin's underlying structure descends leaving dropping undesired jowls, a saggy neck and a less taught appearance of the skin. Often my female patients will report that they have noticed this “drop” of the face happened at an accelerated level around the time of menopause and this is attributed to a sharp decline in the amount of oestrogen which is inherently linked to collagen production. 

I am well known as a “Botox Doctor” performing thousands of Botox treatments per year at my London Cosmetic Clinic, I do also spend a large percentage of my time now specialising in non-surgical facelift treatments for the face and neck. As one of the UK experts in Silhouette Soft Thread Lifts I have performed more thread lift treatments than most UK doctors this year, I presented at the National Conference for Silhouette Soft in June and attended the international World Expert meeting for Silhouette Soft thread lift in Barcelona in October. I have had fantastic results with patients travelling from as far as South America to undergo this non surgical facelift treatment at my London clinic.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift, also known as the “one stitch lift” or ‘puppet lift’ takes approximately 1 hour to perform, with local anaesthetic and gives minimal downtime and subtle but impressive lifting results. Treatment is also suitable to lift brows and neck. Results last approximately 18 months. The standard number of threads needed for face is 4 threads at a cost of £1520. 

At Dr Leah Clinic we believe that subtle natural looking results are key with little or no downtime are the key.

Shirley's Story

One of the patients I treated recently is Shirley (67), a mother of five, who had a silhouette soft thread lift procedure done by myself  recently for her daughter’s wedding what she thought about the treatment and the results.

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

 “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."

If you are wanting to leave your make up bag behind and bare all with glowing skin this summer then I recommend the award winning Dr Leah Bespoke Facial. The Dr Leah Bespoke facial uses a combination of innovative technologies to brighten, firm and rehydrate your skin. A routine facial should be part of everyone’s skin care management. Dependant on what your skin care goals and needs actually are will depend on the type of facial you should choose and how regularly you should have them.  

You may not realise but the skin is the largest organ in the human body and has a daily battle against environmental factors such as pollution, UV and weather not to mention hormones that weaken our skins ability to protect us. Lifestyle choices we make such as smoking, diet, make-up and incorrect product use all have a negative impact on the appearance of your skin.

So what can you do to get the most out of your skin and restore its natural glow? Ensure to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise and protect with SPF daily. Look out for ingredients such as Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid and Papaya which will keep your skin fresh and of course follow that healthy life style.

Here at Dr Leah’s Cosmetic Skin Clinics London we are here to help, we offer a free skin analysis during which our experienced skin specialists will consult, scan and assess your skin needs. We will then design a bespoke treatment and home care plan and educate you on skin health. We will work with you to achieve smooth, healthy, flawless skin.

Dr Leah Totton with patient

As the trend for natural beauty rises and the demand for 'something subtle' becomes more popular than ever, the formerly fashionable 'trout pout' is definitely no longer the look that patients want to achieve. Instead, our clients are seeking out a middle ground, opting for less invasive treatment and - regardless of the procedure - that subtle outcome that enhances one's appearance without changing it completely.

The cosmetic industry as a whole is starting to embrace this wave of natural rejuvenation, which is why procedures such as Silhouette Soft® are in demand. Minimal downtime alongside maximum results mean that this procedure is hot stuff! This definitely true here at Dr Leah's Clinic.

This trend extends to historically popular treatments such as Botox, which is still highly effective, but clients now no longer want that expressionless, fake, plastic look. They are following our advice that less is definitely more!

Whatever the season, all of us here at Dr Leah's Clinic are advocates of natural beauty, and so we're obviously thrilled with this new trend - we say long may it continue!

The Dr Leah Clinic is located in Moorgate, not far from Liverpool Street. Click here for more details, or call 020 7877 5999 to speak with a member of our team.

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.

Laser hair removal

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.

The Dr Leah Botox clinic is located near Liverpool Street in London. Click here for contact details, or visit our Botox page to learn more.

Facial filler

Dermal fillers are gels that can be used to smooth out unwanted facial wrinkles and create a plump, youthful appearance. One treatment produces results that are visible immediately, and last for roughly 6-9 months.

We offer a range of anti-wrinkle treatments here at Dr Leah Clinics, and our dermal fillers (also known as facial fillers) have proven to be particularly effective. Our dermal filler treatments start from £225 click here to book your dermal filler treatment now, or keep reading to learn more...

What gels are used as facial fillers?
There are many different dermal filler gels available, though we at Dr Leah Clinics always use Juvéderm®, a natural hyaluronic gel that leads the market and gives outstanding results in a variety of different areas (including the cheeks, nose, and lips).

Does it hurt?
Before injecting the dermal filler gel, your clinician will apply a local anaesthetic to numb the area in question. This makes the procedure practically painless.

Are there any side effects dermal fillers?
Some patients notice a mild swelling/soreness after receiving the facial filler treatment, but this is temporary and usually subsides shortly afterwards. If improperly administered, the treatment can result in more serious complications, such as infections or allergic reactions, but the medical experts at Dr Leah Clinics take all necessary precautions to ensure that these situations do not arise.

Is the treatment reversible?
Yes, our dermal filler treatment is fully reversible.

Visit our Facial Filler page for more information about this safe and extremely effective anti-wrinkle treatment.

 

Cryolipolysis – commonly known as ‘fat freezing’ – is a form of non-surgical liposuction that can be used to break down unwanted fat. This painless, non-invasive weight loss treatment has become extremely popular in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why: cryolipolysis is less risky than traditional liposuction, and only one treatment is needed to achieve visible results.

Here at Dr Leah Clinics, we are frequently asked about the fat freezing procedure and how it can help people to lose weight. In this blog post, we will endeavour to answer some of the most common queries.

How does it work?
As the name implies, fat freezing works by crystallising unwanted fat cells, causing them to die and leave the body. During your cryolipolysis treatment, one of our specialists will place the fat freezing device on a specific part of your body (your stomach, for example). This will lower the temperature in this localised area, causing nearby fat cells to solidify and die whilst leaving other cells unharmed.

Once the procedure has been completed, your body will eventually flush out the dead fat cells, leaving the treated area looking slimmer and more toned.

Will I see the results straight away?
No. The body takes a little while to get rid of those dead cells, and the slimming effect of a non-surgical lipo procedure like this usually doesn't become apparent until 12 weeks later.

How long does the procedure take?
Roughly 45 minutes. Since there is no recovery time for cryolipolysis, this means that you can have a weight loss treatment in your lunch hour and then go straight back to work.

Are there any side effects?
Some patients experience some slight bruising and/or numbness after the cryolipolysis procedure, but this typically subsides within 10 days. Note that even non-surgical liposuction procedures are not suitable for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
