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.”

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."

Dr Leah's Silhouette Soft® treatment in the media:

 

The Apprentice is what gave me the ability to realise my dream and to found Dr Leah Clinics. I have been asked the same question repeatedly since appearing on the show: "Why did you want to do The Apprentice?" I hope this blog goes some way to answering that question.

I was 23 when I qualified top of my medical school with a distinction in medicine, which remains my proudest achievement to date. I was already practising as a doctor in a busy London A&E when I applied to be on The Apprentice. With limited business experience at that point and a skill set more suited to an operating theatre than a boardroom, I didn't for one moment imagine that I would actually appear on the show and go on to win it.

My interest in aesthetics started long before I applied to be on the show. I have always been image-conscious - I am a female in her twenties, and I am not ashamed to admit that I care about how I look. Nor am I ashamed to admit that, like most women (and increasingly so men), I too feel pressure to look a certain way. I am not advocating that this societal pressure is correct, but let's not deny that it exists.

The increasing popularity of cosmetic procedures was clear to see, but it was only when a family friend had a botched facial filler procedure that I first realised the issues in the industry. I was still in medical school at the time, and this friend's bad experience was at the hands of a non-medical practitioner, who was not performing in a clinical environment. I was inquisitive by nature, and read way too much on just about everything, so I started researching the sector and was horrified to find that no law had been broken! There was NO regulation regarding where these treatments should be performed, or by whom.

I was appalled, and this fuelled my intrigue in the sector. Upon qualifying, alongside my full-time NHS work (and there is actually no formal training programme for aesthetic medicine), I began what turned out to be two-and-a-half years' training and mentorship in aesthetics. This mentorship will not doubt be life-long - learning is my passion, and I hope I never stop.

Dr Leah Totton with Lord Alan Sugar

The Apprentice itself was harder than I had anticipated. The hours were almost as bad as A&E's and the tasks were tough, but it was the filming aspect of it all that I found particularly difficult. I would love to say how much I enjoyed it all, and there definitely were parts that I loved (namely winning!), but mostly, it was work! Still, I met some wonderful people (who will be lifelong friends) and I got a fantastic business partner and a unique opportunity. So I'll never forget how lucky I am.

When I won, I was overwhelmed with excitement but also realistic about the enormity of the task I now faced. Lord Sugar was incredibly supportive and continues to be so.

As any healthcare worker reading this will know, it is a vocation, so they will also know that it broke my heart to leave my full-time NHS post. But I believe I can make a real change to this industry and create not just a chain of clinics to sell on in the future, but a business that shines a light on the issues in this industry, establishing a standard and forming a brand that will represent a safe haven for people to have cosmetic procedures.

I hope that my personal passion for this industry, my care for my patients and my dedication to excellence come across to everyone who is treated at a Dr Leah clinic.
