Ozempic has become a popular medication for weight loss, and for good reason. It helps regulate blood sugar and promotes feelings of fullness, leading to successful weight loss for many. But there's a new term making the rounds alongside Ozempic Face: Ozempic butt.


What is Ozempic Butt?

Ozempic butt refers to the sagging or flattening of the buttocks that can occur during rapid weight loss, a common side effect of Ozempic. While Ozempic doesn't directly cause loose skin, the quick shedding of fat can leave behind skin that struggles to snap back, especially in areas like the buttocks that tend to lose volume more readily. Our skin has a natural elasticity that allows it to stretch and contract. However, with significant weight loss, particularly in a short period, the skin can lose its elasticity and become loose. This is more noticeable in areas that hold more fat, like the buttocks.

Treatments for Ozempic Butt

While Ozempic is a great tool for weight loss, the Ozempic butt effect can be a concern for some. Here at Dr. Leah Clinics, we understand that achieving your desired body image is important. Here are some options to consider:

• Maintaining a Healthy Weight Loss Pace: Slower, more sustainable weight loss allows the skin more time to adjust and maintain its elasticity, minimizing the risk of sagging.

• Strength Training: Building muscle tone in the glutes can help fill out the buttocks and create a firmer, rounder appearance.

• Lanluma Bum Filler: For a more targeted approach, Dr. Leah Clinics offers Lanluma bum filler. This FDA-approved injectable treatment adds volume and definition to the buttocks, effectively addressing the Ozempic butt concern. Lanluma bum filler, offered at Dr. Leah Clinics, is a popular option for addressing the "Ozempic butt" effect – the sagging or flattening of buttocks that can occur after significant weight loss. But how exactly does it work?

The Science Behind Lanluma
The key ingredient in Lanluma is Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible material that's been used safely in aesthetics for decades. Unlike fillers that simply add volume, Lanluma takes a two-pronged approach:

• Stimulating Collagen Production: PLLA microparticles work deep within the buttocks tissue, triggering your body's natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin. By increasing collagen levels, Lanluma helps your skin regain its firmness and youthful bounce.

• Volume Enhancement: As your body produces more collagen, Lanluma gradually adds volume to the buttocks. This helps to fill out the area, creating a rounder, more lifted appearance.

Benefits of Lanluma Bum Fillers

• Natural-Looking Results: Lanluma works with your body to create a subtle enhancement, avoiding the overly sculpted look sometimes associated with traditional buttock implants.

• Gradual Improvement: Results develop gradually over 2-3 months, allowing you to adjust to your new shape.

• Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgery, Lanluma requires minimal downtime. You may experience some swelling or bruising after the procedure, but most patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two.

• Long-lasting Effects: The results of Lanluma can last for up to two years, depending on your individual body and how well you maintain your weight.

Considering Lanluma?

If you're concerned about the Ozempic butt effect or simply want to add volume and definition to your buttocks, Lanluma could be a good option. However, it's important to consult with an aesthetic doctor to discuss your goals and determine if Lanluma is the right choice for you. They can assess your individual needs, answer any questions you may have, and create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results. Remember, achieving your dream body goes beyond just the number on the scale. At Dr. Leah Clinics, we're here to help you achieve a balanced, healthy figure you can feel confident in.

Ah, summer. The season of sunshine, picnics, and...uncontrollable sweating? For those suffering from hyperhidrosis, the carefree days of summer can be overshadowed by the constant anxiety of embarrassing sweat patches. But fear not, fellow commuters! Science has a weapon in our sweaty arsenal: anti-sweat injections.

Hyperhidrosis: When Sweating Goes Rogue
Our bodies sweat to cool down. It's a natural and essential function. But for people with hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands go into overdrive, producing excessive sweat even in cool temperatures or during low-stress situations. This can affect any part of the body, but the armpits, hands, and soles of the feet are common culprits. Hyperhidrosis is a real medical condition, not just a summer annoyance. It can significantly impact quality of life, leading to social anxiety, emotional distress, and even affecting your choice of clothes.

Enter Sweat Reduction Injections
Injections used for anti-wrinkle treatment, has a surprising superpower: it can shut down sweat production. Here's the science bit: The injections involve a purified protein that temporarily blocks the nerve signals that tell your sweat glands to activate. Think of it like a tiny "off" switch for your overenthusiastic sweat production.

Benefits Beyond the Beach
Injections for hyperhidrosis are a minimally invasive procedure with a big impact. Studies show a significant reduction in sweat production, often exceeding 80%. Imagine a summer commute free from sweat-drenched shirts and the self-consciousness that comes with it. But the benefits extend beyond summer. This treatment can provide long-lasting relief for months, allowing you to feel confident and comfortable in all situations, whether it's a job interview, a first date, or that nerve-wracking presentation.

Is Hyperhidrosis Treatment Right for You?
If you suspect you might have hyperhidrosis, it's important to consult a dermatologist or doctor. They can diagnose the condition and determine if injections are the right treatment option for you. While generally safe, discussing your medical history with a doctor is crucial.

How Dr Leah Clinics can help

Ultherapy: A Firmer, Lifted You with Dr. Leah Totton
Have you noticed a loss of definition in your jawline, or perhaps some unwanted lines and wrinkles creeping in around your brows and décolletage? You're not alone! As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and collagen, leading to these visible signs of aging. Fortunately, there are advanced aesthetic solutions available to combat these concerns. In a recent article published by Women's Health Magazine UK, Dr. Leah Totton, our founder of Dr. Leah Clinics, sheds light on Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment that can help you achieve a lifted, firmer appearance. This blog post overviews the Women's Health Magazine UK article, exploring Ultherapy in detail and highlighting Dr. Leah Totton's valuable insights.

Ultherapy: Lifting and Tightening From Within


The Women's Health Magazine UK article opens by introducing Ultherapy - The innovative, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that targets specific areas of the face, neck, and chest by utilising ultrasound energy to address the underlying causes of sagging skin and wrinkles. Unlike topical creams or masks that work superficially, Ultherapy goes deep beyond the surface. The ultrasound energy precisely targets deeper skin layers, stimulating the production of collagen, the protein responsible for skin's plumpness and elasticity.  The Ultherapy machine has different attachments that deliver ultrasound waves at various depths: superficial, medium, and deep. This targeted energy also causes the muscle to contract and shrink, which translates to a visible lifting and firming effect on the skin giving you a more youthful, sculpted appearance from just one session.

Dr. Leah Totton Shares Her Expertise
The article which you can read in full HERE delves into why someone might consider Ultherapy. Dr. Leah Totton highlights its suitability for individuals who are starting to see visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, or loose skin. For those seeking a non-surgical solution to address sagging skin, particularly in the jawline, neck, brow, and décolletage, Ultherapy offers a non-surgical facelift solution. 

Why Choose Ultherapy? 
No Downtime: One of the biggest advantages of Ultherapy is the lack of downtime required. Unlike surgical procedures, you can resume your normal activities immediately following the treatment.

• Combination Power: Ultherapy can be effectively combined with other cosmetic procedures like fillers, Botox and threads at the Dr Leah Clinic, to achieve even more dramatic and long-lasting results.

• Long-lasting Results:  Ultherapy results can last up to a year, offering a significant improvement in skin laxity and definition.

Ultherapy Treated Areas: 

Jawline and Neck: This is one of the most popular areas for Ultherapy treatment. Ultherapy tightens loose skin and sharpens the jawline for a more sculpted appearance - it is an excellent treatment for lifting jowls.

• Brow Area: Ultherapy can address wrinkles and sagging brows, lifting them for a more youthful look.

• Décolletage: The delicate skin on the chest can also show signs of aging. Ultherapy can tighten and smooth this area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

The Ultherapy Procedure: What to Expect
The additional Women's Health Magazine UK article sheds light on what to expect during an Ultherapy procedure.

• Duration: The procedure typically takes around 1.5 - 2 hours

• Comfort: Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment, but it's not entirely painless, as the patient may experience some discomfort, however topical numbing cream or medication can be used to minimise discomfort. It's important to note that everyone has a different pain tolerance.

• Downtime: There is no downtime associated with Ultherapy. You can resume your normal activities following the procedure.

Results and Longevity: Unveiling a New You
The Women's Health Magazine UK article mentions results begin to show after 3 months with some patients may see immediate improvement. The great news is that Ultherapy results are long-lasting and typically only one session is needed, and the effects can last for over year!

Maintenance treatments can be performed every year or two, depending on your individual needs and aging process.

Cost Considerations
the treatment starts at £1,700 for the neck and can range up to £3,300 for a full face and neck treatment.

Looking for a non-surgical way to achieve a more youthful appearance? Thread lifts are a popular option, but with so many thread types available, choosing the right one can be confusing. This blog is here to shed light on the pros and cons of three popular thread types – PDO Mint, Silhouette Soft and APTOS threads - to help you understand which might be a better fit for your goals.

Understanding the Thread Options

  • PDO Threads (MINT):
    • Offer a better initial lift and are Ideal for neck lifting due to their insertion points.
    • Stimulate collagen production, but the type of collagen may not be as beneficial as that produced by Silhouette Soft Thread Lifts
    • Recovery tends to involve more swelling and puckering compared to Silhouette Soft.
    • Insertion points are located at the hairline, making them easier to conceal.
  • Silhouette Soft Threads:
    • Provide a more subtle initial lift, but the results tend to last longer due to the stimulation of a more resilient type of collagen.
    • Not as effective for lifting the neck and therefore a combination with Mint PDO threads can be considered for this area.
    • Insertion points are located in the mid-cheek, which can lead to visible dimples during recovery. This dimpling will fully resolve after a week.
    • Generally experience less swelling but more bruising compared to MINT threads (except MINT mono threads used in the neck area).
  • Aptos threads:
  • These threads boast the longest-lasting results (18-24 months) due to their unique material combination (PLA, PCL) and barbed design that physically lifts and anchors sagging tissue.
  • They are ideal for addressing moderate to severe concerns like deep wrinkles, jowls, and volume

Brow Lifting with Threads

It is important to note that while eyebrow thread lifts can give a great-looking result – results will only last up to 6 months. To optimize the outcome and prevent muscles from pulling against the threads, thread lift procedures on the brow should be combined with muscle relaxing injections.

Recovery After Thread Lifts

While most people can return to work within a week after treatment, a complete recovery can take up to 6 weeks depending on individual factors. A helpful rule of thumb is to expect 1 day of recovery per thread inserted. At Dr Leah Clinic we offer expert lymphatic drainage massage to help speed up recovery and reduce swelling.

  • Silhouette Soft: Recovery challenges often involve visible dimples at the insertion points in the mid-cheek for the duration of recovery. There is no pain during the procedure and less swelling compared to MINT threads, but bruising is more common, however this should resolve after a week.
  • MINT Threads: Recovery focuses on managing swelling, pain, and puckering. Insertion points are located at the hairline, making them easier to conceal. Slight discomfort can occur in the days after this procedure and pain relievers are often recommended in the first few days after treatment.

Pain During and After Thread Lifts

Neither procedure is inherently painful. Local anesthetic is administered before insertion, which might cause a stinging sensation. You may feel some pressure and pulling during the procedure, but it shouldn't be very painful.

  • Silhouette Soft: Generally well-tolerated, with occasional nerve-like twinges that may require pain relievers in rare instances.
  • MINT Threads: Can be more uncomfortable, with nerve-like twinges lasting up to 2 weeks after treatment. Pain relievers are often recommended for the first 3 days.
