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!

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.

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.
