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.”

What Does a Mummy Tummy Makeover Consist Of?

 

The Mummy Tummy Makeover at Dr Leah Cosmetic Skin Clinics successfully targets the appearance of loose skin and stretch marks left over from pregnancy or dramatic weight loss – without the risks and downtime involved with invasive surgical options.

 

The Process

 

The process of undergoing a Mummy Tummy Makeover involves several appointments; 

 

  • Appointment 1 Initial Body Consultation - FREE

 

During your Initial Body Consultation, a patch test is completed to ensure suitability for the treatment course. 48 hours after your initial consultation, your treatment course will begin. 

 

  • Appointment 2 - One iPixel or Dermapen Session

 

iPixel 

 

As we age, the tone and texture of our skin changes. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear, age spots and blemishes may develop, and the texture of our skin can become coarse and uneven. To combat this, we use light and laser-based skin resurfacing technologies to smooth out and balance the skin texture, tone and elasticity. Our iPixel employs a fractional delivery method which creates pixel-sized perforations in the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows the skin to heal faster as the epidermis is regenerated. 

 

Dermapen 

 

Dermapen is the industry leading microneeding device, it is a skin repair treatment that can help to significantly improve the appearance of ageing or scarred skin. It uses tiny needles attached to a pen device to gently puncture the skin causing a series of traumatic punctures on the skin. The result of this is that the skin responds to this by naturally producing collagen and elastin to repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin work to smooth and firm the skin, plumping out deep lines and improving the indented or red appearance of scars and stretch marks.

 

  • Appointments 3 to 8 - Six Radiofrequency Sessions 

 

Radiofrequency

 

Our radiofrequency utilises electrodes to deliver the Radiofrequency energy under the skin (which is controlled and limited to the treatment area). Radio frequency helps to concentrate the body’s collagen fibres and encourages the quick regeneration of the collagen and elastin that we lose as we age. This results in a firmer, more youthful look.

 

  • Appointment 8 - One iPixel or Dermapen 

 Finally, the area of concern is treated with another powerful iPixel or Dermapen session to further enhance the tightening effect provided by the Radiofrequency. 

 

Clare's Story

Clare, 33.

 

“I had my little girl when I was 18 and after the birth my weight ballooned and I went up to a size 22 quickly which left a lot of stretch marks. I had my son five years later, and following this I worked really hard and got down to a size 8/10. Fast forward 10 years and while my stomach isn’t bad enough that I wanted a tummy tuck, the weight loss means the skin is much worse. I wanted a treatment that would help but not be too invasive, so when I saw on her Instagram that they offer a mummy tummy treatment I knew this would be for me! I went to speak to Dr Leah about the treatment and trusted her straight away, because she is medically trained as well I feel it gives you more confidence.

Because I had my daughter so young, I’ve never actually appreciated having a nice stomach with no stretch marks so it’s nice to have it now. I can’t recommend this treatment enough!”
