Dr Leah clinics are an award winning centre for non-surgical facial lifting treatment Silhouette Soft and Dr Leah Totton is a world expert in the treatment, which provides a discrete and immediate lift of the skin around the jowls, chin, neck and mid face area. 

 

Also being the UK trainer for Silhouette Soft threads, Dr Leah Totton has won awards for her thread lift treatments and performs hundreds of Thread Lift treatments per year. The majority of clients Dr Leah treats in our Moorgate clinic are women who wish to freshen up their appearance but work full time in the city so can’t take too much time off for recovery. Dr Leah has created a new way of inserting threads to decrease the downtime required, we have named this the Dr Leah Thread Lift”.

 

Skin lifting with Silhouette Soft threads involves a unique two-stage process – an immediate lift and gradual collagen regeneration. Think of it as the creation of scaffolding for skin, reversing the southward droop of necks, jowls and cheeks. The threads are peppered with a series of tiny cones are introduced just under the top layer of the skin.  The cones are bi-directional which secures the threads in place in the subcutaneous layer and allows them to be pulled in two directions to lift the skin.

 

The threads and cones are made from polylactic acid which is the same material as dissolvable stitches and in the ensuing three months before they are absorbed by the body they bring about the process of collagenesis.  This is the method the body uses to repair a damaged area - in this case created by the agitation of the cones. This brings about a biological lift, where the skin becomes firmer and tighter as a result of the augmentation from newly laid down collagen underneath the surface to fill it out naturally.   

Silhouette Soft achieves such natural looking results that it is fast becoming a much favoured treatment amongst patients looking for ways to counter sagging skin on their faces and necks without anyone knowing they have had anything ‘done’.

 

Silhouette Soft has been chosen to hold back time by a raft of celebrities thanks to the subtle nature of the results it achieves.  Those who have spoken publicly about it include Gillian Taylforth, Meg Mathews and Sharron Davies.

 

If you would like to fight the signs of ageing, a Silhouette Soft® thread lift may well be the best possible option. This innovative treatment (also known as a ‘one stitch face lift’) uses bidirectional absorbable thread cones to lift and rejuvenate your facial skin, resulting in a fresher, more youthful appearance.

“Immediately after having the procedure I couldn’t believe the difference already! It was even better than I’d hoped for and it only took 20 minutes, plus was pain-free which is incredible. The next morning I was excited to see the results and was amazed to find I had very little bruising at all, it was slightly tender over my jawline which was to be expected, but that was it.

 

My face seems lifted and I no longer look like my face is pulled down or sad - I feel better more confidence in my appearance already and it is showing – I have already had one successful pitch since having the thread lift.

 

The Dr Leah Thread Lift allowed me to freshen up my appearance at a reasonable cost and without having to undergo full surgery and all of the risks involved with that.”

The Dr Leah Lift, as reviewed in The Metro and The London Evening Standard, was created by award winning Cosmetic Doctor, Dr Leah Totton and is available exclusively at Dr Leah Cosmetic Skin Clinics (Moorgate and Loughton).

The Dr Leah Lift combines the power of 3 different treatments to provide effective, natural results (without the need for cosmetic surgery, Botox or dermal filler). Dr Leah believes in making her clients look like the best possible versions of themselves (not like someone else!) and as such has pioneered the Dr Leah Lift using three techniques to stimulate your bodys own ability to produce collagen and elastin to firm, lift and naturally rejuvenate the face. This treatment is ideal for lifting the mid-face and sagging jowls, firming the neck and rejuvenating dull complexions. 

Prior to treatment, each client will be offered a complimentary face to face consultation with Dr Leah Totton herself (usually £50), where your suitability for this treatment will be assessed. If you are deemed suitable then the treatment steps will be as follows;

(1) Ultherapy Ultrasound Facelift 

Ultherapy is a safe, FDA approved, micro-focused ultrasound treatment that effectively targets sagging, loose skin. After just one treatment, a fresher, firmer and more youthful appearance can be achieved without the need for surgery or downtime. 

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy relies on micro-focused ultrasound to bypass the skin’s surface and deliver targeted deep tissue wound healing and the regeneration of important support structures in the skin such as collagen and elastin. By using focused energy alongside ultrasound imaging, the practitioner is able to deliver precise treatment to the location(s) where it will be most beneficial, resulting in an extremely effective lifting treatment. 

If you were to have this treatment as a standalone and not part of the Dr Leah Lift, it would usually cost £2800. 

(2) Silhouette Soft Thread Lift 

Designed to redefine the face for those looking for restored volume and reduced sagging. The thread lift treatment takes approximately 1 hour to perform and involves pulling a thread under the skin of the jaw line and lower face and mechanically pulling it upwards, lifting the mid and lower face to improve sagging.

Silhouette Soft® is a thread lift treatment that represents a safe and highly effective alternative to surgical face lifts and neck lifts. The threads used are made of the same substance that is used for sutures, orthopaedic pins and bone fracture treatments. 

How does a Thread Lift work? 

Thread cones are inserted into the face to lift sagging skin, creating a firmer, younger look. After the treatment, the threads will gradually anchor themselves to your tissue and stimulate the body’s collagen production, creating a smooth, shapely appearance that’s completely natural.  

If you were to have this treatment as a standalone and not part of the Dr Leah Lift, it would usually cost £2100. 

(3) Obagi Blue Radiance Peel 

This peel is one of the leading medical skincare treatments currently available and Obagi exclusively use only the most effective prescription-strength ingredients to repair, regenerate and transform your skin. The Obagi Blue Radiance Peel is a gentle light to medium peel which, in just 30 minutes, leaves you with radiant, glowing and smoother skin.

If you were to have this treatment as a standalone and not part of the Dr Leah Lift, it would usually cost £90.

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."
