As of the 1st May Dr Leah clinics have implemented a slight price increase to treatments personally performed by Dr Leah. Please note no other prices have been increased. 

 

Dr Leah Totton alongside her work as an NHS doctor is increasingly dedicating her time to training our other Dr Leah doctors in the Dr Leah injection technique and Dr Leah approved treatment protocols. Dr Leah is also now training on a global level as the trainer for Silhouette Soft thread lifts, she is the medical advisor to the board for Sinclair IS Pharma group and the UK head doctor for Obagi medical products.

 Dr Leah's expert technical ability combined with her exceptional reputation within the industry and popularity with patients has resulted in an unprecedented demand for appointments with her; with current wait times for an appointment being approximately 6 weeks. Dr Leah will continue to treat 1 day per week at each clinic and this price increase will allow us to hopefully reduce the wait time for an appointment with Dr Leah and allocate longer appointment times per patient.  

Dr Leah has dedicated much of her time over the past 3 years head hunting, training and mentoring our other doctors including Dr Emily, Dr Patel, Dr Zoya and Dr Sharma - each are now industry leaders in their own right and practice very similarly to Dr Leah, using products selected by Dr Leah and Dr Leah approved techniques and treatment protocols to ensure continuity of standards for all patients seen at Dr Leah clinics. We are delighted to now be in a position to offer our clients such an exceptional choice of cosmetic physicians and we have taken the decision not to increase the prices for our other doctors.

NEW Dr Leah Non Surgical Eye Lift 

 We are extremely excited to announce that we are now offering a new plasma technology eye lift treatment at both our London and Loughton clinics. This quick and easy treatment reduces hooded heavy brows and tightens the skin on the upper eyelids which is usually very hard to treat without surgery. 

It works by ‘zapping’ the excess skin on the upper eyelid with a plasma current which removes the excess skin by a process called sublimation. Dramatic results can be achieved without the need for a scalp or knife.

Benefits: 

•Reduce heavy brows / saggy skin around the eyes (called 'non-surgical blepharoplasty')

•Treats wrinkles around the eye

•Permanent results  (usually after 5+ years)

•Quick procedure time ( 30 minutes)

•No injectable anaesthetic required

•No cutting of skin

•No stitches required

•Very low risk procedure (NO risk of blindness as there is with surgery)

•Minimal side effects and far less downtime than surgery 

•No thinning of the skin

•Significantly cheaper than surgery 

 

For maximum results we recommend 3 treatments 6 weeks apart and the total cost for the 3 treatments is £1650.

Watch our very own Dr Emily undergo the treatment! https://www.instagram.com/p/BQxfGL4AJIy/?taken-by=dr_leah_clinics&hl=en

Dr Leah Clinics is delighted to announce that we are now offering hair transplant surgery at both our London and Essex clinics.

Hair loss is extremely common, especially in men. Often referred to as male-pattern baldness it affects around half of all men by 50 years of age.  This means that 7.4 million men are losing their hair at any one time.  Thinning usually starts around the late twenties or early thirties and most men have some degree of hair loss by their late thirties. 

The main cause of hair loss is genetics and hormones followed by illness and trauma. Male pattern baldness only affects the top and front of the scalp, this is due to the follicles in this area being highly receptive to specific hormones that causes balding. Hair loss in females tend to be much less prevalent and is caused by a number of different factors including genetics, stress or various medical issues.

At the Dr Leah clinic we only work alongside the most high trained and qualified practitioners to ensure the highest quality treatments for our clients - which is why we have chosen to partner with one of the UK’s most experienced hair transplant surgeons, who has been performing hair transplant successfully since 1996 and was one of the new generation of doctors to learn strip micro graft hair transplant surgery and was first to introduce FUE,(follicular unit extraction) into the UK in 2003.

 Dr Leah Clinic welcomed its first hair transplant patient last month – Mr Colin Hunt from Chigwell, Essex. Mr Hunt’s main concern was sparse thinning hair on top of the scalp. The hair on the sides of the scalp were still prevalent meaning he was a great candidate for the procedure.

The FUT technique was used for Mr Hunt’s procedure, which is the most commonly used technique for patients and is seen as one of the most effective.

During treatment local anaesthetic was applied to the donor area (the sides of the head). Then under a microscope a thin strip of hairy scalp was taken and all follicular units separated. The area the strip was removed from was then stitched with absorbable stitches.

The recipient area (the area that hair will regrow) was then numbed and pinprick incisions made. The follicular unit grafts taken from the donor area (sides of the head) were then placed into the incisions with the whole procedure taking approximately 5-6 hours.

Hair should begin to grow in approximately 12 weeks with the full result visible 12 – 24 months.

 

Mr Hunt said “I was really surprised at how pain free the procedure was and with the team being so accommodating and friendly the time passed very quickly.  I felt very confident in Dr Rogers’s hands and can’t wait to see my new head of hair”

 

 Click to book a Hair Transplant Consultation today you can also call 020 7877 5999 or email info@drleah.co.uk 

 

Dr Leah Clinic will be holding its 1st Education Event on 20th September from 11am - 3pm at our Loughton Cosmetic Clinic, Essex. The event is free to attend and we will be educating our clients on how to prevent premature ageing and sharing top tips on how to get the best out of your skin.   

During the event there will be:

  • Presentations on how to tackle ageing from our expert team, including Dr Leah.
  • Live demonstrations of our treatments 
  • Free skin scanning and free consultations with one of our experts 

Attendees are welcome to take advantage of our exclusive 15% off selected treatments and rewards available on the day whilst enjoying the complimentary champagne and canapes.

Shirley (67), a mother of five, whose daughter recently married in Matching Church, Essex, felt more emotional than most mums as she helped with her daughter’s wedding preparations. Over the past 25 years she had had several challenges leaving her unsure if she would ever see her marry. 

In 1989, Shirley’s life took a dramatic turn, after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Six years later, in 1995, a subsequent tumour was diagnosed and yet another in 1999. Each time she was treated at The Royal Free Hospital, London, undergoing brain surgery to remove non-malignant tumours, followed by a course of radiotherapy. Thankfully her condition is in remission; however the treatment left Shirley with diminished confidence about her looks,

So despite much excitement about her daughters’ big day, Shirley was aware that she would be photographed numerous times and was keen to look her best, as she explained:

“I wanted to look fresh and more youthful for my daughter’s wedding.”

She consulted with me at Dr Leah Skin Cosmetic Clinic in London to discuss how we could help her to approach the event with confidence.    In fact we are seeing a rise in the number of patients like Shirley, who are seeking discrete and natural looking, anti-aging treatments – especially before milestone events such as wedding.  

Sagging in the mid-face, jowls and neck occurs as we get older and gravity takes its toll. This drooping of the skin ages our appearance and Botox and fillers are unable to tackle the lifting needed to counter this.   However, Silhouette Soft, an innovative and discrete anti-aging treatment is the only non-surgical option to lift the skin and defy gravity, and this is what we recommended to Shirley.”

Treatment is carried out under a small local anaesthetic, which is administered to the face immediately before the procedure. Once the face is numb fine threads are inserted just under the skin where they are held in place with bi-directional cones. These cones are positioned along the length of the threads and act as anchors. The tension in the threads, once gently tightened, work to lift the sagging skin- elevating the facial tissue immediately.  The threads are then absorbed by the body.

Even better, the results of the treatment continue to improve over the coming months. Before dissolving the cones on the threads stimulate the body to produce its own collagen, helping increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually.

The treatment takes under an hour, and the initial effect can be seen straightaway.

Ready for my close-up

As Shirley explained:

“I could see the lifting results immediately! My face felt tighter, and slightly tender for the next couple of days, but not painful”

And how did she look at the wedding?

“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.

The wedding photographs show Shirley smiling with confidence and glowing with happiness, knowing that she had defied her condition to see her daughter’s wedding and overcome her concerns about her diminished appearance.

 

A typical Silhouette Soft treatment consists of four threads and costs around £1,500. Treatment is offered subject to the clinician confirming a patient’s suitability.

 

 

 

We’re now well into awards season and the Oscars are fast approaching. Many hours of careful pampering will have gone into the stars you’ll see on the red carpet. So, what are their secrets? Here are five ways you can give yourself the flawless look of a glamorous silver screen star.

Make sure your diet is up to scratch

We all know as the dark nights creep in the craving for comfort food starts and most of these foods are sugar and carbohydrate rich. The American Academy of Dermatology have suggested that consumption of high GI foods such as biscuits, sugary drinks, white rice, bread and pasta can trigger a cascade response that can lead to acne, ageing and inflammation. They also reported a weak but possible link between diary and acne.

Look and feel your best by keeping your skin healthy from inside and out, look out for yellow and orange foods and those high in Vitamin A.  Also salmon and fresh water fish are high in omega 3 and essential fatty acids which your skin needs to keep it healthy, hydrated and glowing.

Don’t overlook the cosmetic benefits of microdermabrasion

If you’ve got a big event planned prep your skin with microdermabrasion, a one off half-hour treatment can immediately result in a revitalised and more glowing complexion that even JLo would envy. Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells, which also allows make-up to sit better on the skin for a flawless look all evening. We recommend a series of microdermabrasion treatments once a month to achieve optimum results.

Consider laser treatment for reducing redness

Laser sessions have also attracted acclaim among beauty professionals in recent times as a means of calming down acne and redness. Who would have imagined that mere spectrums of light would make such an immense difference to one's appearance?

If your skin routinely looks redder than you think it should, it’s possible that you are suffering from broken blood vessels on the face – or, to use the technical term, telangiectasia. We have recently dedicated a blog post to explaining this common condition and how we can use advanced laser treatment to banish it.

Get the Kate Winslet look with facial treatments

Kate Winslet, who has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this year’s Oscars for her role as Joanna Hoffman in the biopic Steve Jobs, is bound to look fresh-faced on the red carpet. That’s because she is a facial fan – and there’s a wide range of facials that we at Dr Leah can provide. These include anti-ageing and skin tightening treatments.

Don’t leave it too late

Remember the prep for a red carpet event begins weeks before! Consider inch loss treatmentbefore a big event, one treatment a week for 6 weeks in the lead-up to an event will allow for optimum results. We use targeted ultrasonic waves to destroy fat cells without harming any other cells in your body, meaning you will lose measurable inches to fit into that perfect little black dress, leaving you to feel confident and enjoy your event! 

 

Broken blood vessels and redness on the skin are a part of life that many people have to deal with – especially as they age or if they suffer from inflammatory skin disorders such as rosacea. The technical term for these broken blood vessels on the face is telangiectasia – but they can also be referred to as thread veins, spider veins, broken capillaries, or simply redness.

These broken blood vessels are tiny capillaries near the skin’s surface that have broken after being overworked and dilating too much. Look closely at your face and you may see them – they typically appear around the chin, nose and cheeks. Unfortunately, once broken blood vessels appear, it can be very difficult to get rid of them.

What can cause broken blood vessels?

We often explain to our clients at the Dr Leah Clinic that capillaries are constantly dilating and contracting and, with over-stimulation, can eventually break, as the vessels are thin and fragile. This is much like if you were to continually stretch an elastic band – eventually, over time, it would just snap.  This can occur naturally; however, there are numerous factors that can contribute to increased damage to your capillaries, including:

Additional lifestyle factors include:

  • Excess sun exposure
  • Sunburn
  • Sun beds
  • Smoking
  • Harsh weather conditions
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Stress
  • Over-processing the skin with harsh products
  • Excess spicy foods or caffeine

So, what can be done to treat broken blood vessels?

Remember that prevention is always better than cure. So, take a look at what you can change in your lifestyle to prevent broken capillaries occurring in the first place, and always ensure that you are daily slapping on adequate broad spectrum SPF 30 suncream to protect from damaging UV rays. However, you can never completely prevent these broken veins from appearing – and some people already have many present. This is where we at the Dr Leah Clinic can help you.

To tackle the issue of broken blood vessels, we offer the latest and most up-to-date AFT technology; this is a fourth generation IPL laser treatment that penetrates deep into the skin, shattering and destroying the broken capillaries. These broken capillaries are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system, leaving a more clear and flawless complexion.

This powerful and effective laser treatment takes just 30 minutes, and does not either require anaesthetic or, unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, burn the skin's outer layer. As a result, redness and downtime are minimised.

We usually recommend 3 treatments at 4 week intervals. We also recommend, to complement your skin health, gentle home care products containing key soothing ingredients to help minimise redness and strengthen capillary walls.

Hyperpigmentation can be referred to by many different names including dark spots, age spots, sun spots or just simply uneven skin tone. Regardless of how you refer to this complex skin condition, one thing remains the same - most people who suffer from hyperpigmentation want to reduce or remove it and some are not even sure how it got there in the first place.

Common causes of hyperpigmentation

The signs of hyperpigmentation are certainly easy to spot - they're those brownish patches that give you an uneven skin tone and become more numerous as you get older.

Such dark spots can appear on the face as well as on the hands, shoulders and décolletage, there are many different causes of this common skin concern but the most common are sun exposure, hormones or inflammation.

Sun exposure

The sun’s rays penetrate your skin and stimulate your pigment cells, which are called melanocytes, to produce the pigment known as melanin. This is the skins way of protecting itself from harmful UV rays that can cause damage to cells and even lead to cancer. However, with over exposure to UV these melanocytes go into overdrive and start to produce too much pigment (melanin) which results in an uneven, mottled appearance on the surface of the skin.

Such spots can surface seemingly out of nowhere, although they aren't necessarily as random as may first appear, it is the accumulation of damage from the UV to the melanocyte over many years that eventually leads to dark spots being visible on the skin. It can take as long as 20 years for this damage to take place, which is why most people start to notice them later 30’s, a broad spectrum SPF 30 should be worn daily all year round to prevent this. Worryingly, there is an increase in people much younger concerned with dark spots, this is due to over exposure to sun without adequate protection in the quest for the perfect tan or over use of sunbeds. Luckily pigmentation caused from UV tends to be the easiest to treat.

Hormones

Hormones can wreak havoc with our skin, especially when they fluctuate and change dramatically. This is usually due to factors such as pregnancy, menopause or even severe levels of stress. Change in hormone levels can cause the melanocytes in our skin to become overactive. One example is Melasma or “the mask of pregnancy” as it is sometimes known. This is when pregnant women experience darkening of their skin across their cheeks, forehead and upper lip due to the surge of hormones in their body. Their skin can return to normal once their hormones settle but often they will require treatment to clear it completely, especially if they have been exposed to the sun at the same time.

 There are other common potential causes of hyperpigmentationsuch as inflammation and such dark spots are usually harmless, being undesirable from a cosmetic rather than medical standpoint.    Rarely, serious conditions like Addison's disease, haemochromatosis and Melanoma (Skin Cancer) – can be the cause and in particular if a mole appears to change in colour, size and texture we would always recommend seeking medical advice.

The best methods for removing dark spots

Recent years have seen the emergence of over-the-counter serums for hyperpigmentation. However, the reality is that unless you are using prescription only based ingredients such as hydroquinone in a safe and tested formula like Obagi the results are going to be minimal. OTC serums are great to brighten and smooth the skin, especially if they include ingredients such as Lactic Acid and Vitamin C. However, these ingredients are not able to penetrate the epidermis far enough to really control the melanocyte and tackle the route of the problem, which leads many people to abandon such products.

Using product can often be expensive and timely, which is why many people are looking for an alternative to tackle this hard to treat condition, lasers can be one such solution for fast effective results.

Here at the Dr Leah skin clinic, we know a thing or two about this area of treatment, we offer safe, state of the art, FDA approved laser technologies to reduce or completely remove dark blemishes.

This pigment busting laser treatment takes just 30 minutes, does not require anaesthetic and unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, does not burn the skin's outer layer, thereby minimising redness and downtime. It involves the exposure of a dark spot or pigmented lesion to short pulses of visible light, causing the melanin to shatter and the pigment to be absorbed by the body.

The outcome is less visible or even completely destroyed dark patches, leaving you with brighter, clearer and more even skin tone and with it, greater self-confidence.
