Dr Leah's Cosmetic Skin Clinics

Founded by The Apprentice winner Dr. Leah Totton and Lord Alan Sugar, Dr. Leah Cosmetic Skin Clinic opened in January 2014. Due to the success of the Moorgate clinic we opened a second clinic in Loughton, Essex in April 2016 with a third set to open in the near future.
This expansion is testament to its highly trained and qualified team combined with safe and effective treatment offerings. We always aim to provide an ethical and transparent service for our patient’s and only work alongside premium brands such as Allergan and Obagi and innovative technologies such as Ultherapy, Soprano Ice, Harmony, Plasma IQ and Silhouette soft.
With a patient database of approx. 7000 we regularly treat over 200 patients a week with exceptional results. We also believe our growing database is related to the outstanding customer service and patient journey.
Our company ethos is to provide patients with safe and effective treatment using the most up to date technologies. We strongly believe every client should be educated about the procedure they wish to undertake so they can make a fully informed decision as to whether they would like to proceed and always allow them a cooling off period for the more advanced treatments. We also like to encourage subtle enhancements of the patients own natural beauty.
As a clinic we also feel it is imperative we invest in our staff training to ensure we are always informing our clients of the most up to date information and treatment knowledge with all members of staff regularly attending training and conferences.

We have 2 aestheticians and an experienced management team of 5 people that keep the clinic running smoothly.
We currently provide around 5000 treatments a year in our main clinic and have treated well over 27,000 patients since we first opened.
We rigorously evaluate all new treatments that come on to the market and carefully review medical papers taking an evidence-based approach before selecting the treatments that will give our clients the very best in results. Having 5 Doctors in the practice allows a greater breadth of knowledge and depth.

Medicetics treats a percentage of professionals both male and female looking for a gentle, subtle look – the majority of our clients are early 30’s-50’s.
We believe the greatest advantage of our treatments over surgery is that it is possible to have significant improvements without “making you look different” - A step by step process: an evolution rather than dramatic change.
We don’t chase the aggressive before and after photo after a single treatment but arrive there by a series of subtle transformations, a journey that we go on together with our patients.

We’ve held true to our maxim to deliver treatments which work whilst maintaining a natural look. We remain approachable, honest, and ethical, offering realistic expectations.
We thoroughly document every treatment performed with electronic notes for every single half unit of botox, 0.1ml of hyaluronic acid and every setting for laser treatments etc ever performed over the last 9 years.
We are results-driven, backed up with photos of every patient (our photo archive is almost 150,000 strong), allowing us to continually improve our treatments and delivery of results.
As the industry has grown in the UK we hope we’ve been part of that push for excellence in the field of aesthetics.

The Cadogan Clinic

The Cadogan Clinic was established in 2008 as the first dedicated full-practice aesthetic clinic in the UK, designed to provide a full range of medical, surgical and non-surgical treatments in one purpose-build facility. The clinic has 3 general anaesthetic theatres, 7 consulting rooms, 6 treatment rooms and a fully equipped aesthetics suite.

The founder, Mr Bryan Mayou is best known for introducing liposuction to the UK, and was one of the first consultants to develop and use commercial lasers in the 1980s. He led the acquisition of the first two pulse-dye lasers in the UK, to St Thomas’ and the Lister Hospital, treating vascular lesions, brown lesions and tattoos.

His aim was to provide and develop world-leading and pioneering aesthetic treatment in a boutique setting. He wanted to create an environment where hand-picked surgeons, medical consultants, nurse prescribers and aestheticians could collaborate to drive forward cross-speciality aesthetic medicine and provide a genuinely holistic and individualised approach to each patient, addressing their aesthetic and dermatology concerns as part of their surgical journey - a contrast to the siloed care that was common at the time in the industry.

The Cadogan approach is for our multi-speciality consultant and practitioner body to work together to assess and treat patients by their areas of expertise. This could be part of a treatment plan, where internal referrals are made within the Clinic, or when two or more practitioners team-up in the same treatment (e.g. combined PRP and facelifts, combined Plexr and blepharoplasty, or intravenous anaesthesia for pain-relief during ultherapy). We also offer many options across the pathway, from laser assisted fat-burning to liposuction, from ultherapy to facelifts. Although this is consultant led-treatment, our aestheticians and nurse injectors take centre stage and are integrated.

In 2016 we treated over 6,000 patients in over 18,000 episodes of care covering the full range of surgical treatments (Face & Eyes, Body, Breast, Gynecology, Foot, Fat Transfer, Vascular, Andrology), non-surgical (Facial Rejuvenation, Fat Removal, Laser treatments with full laser suite (Accent, Cynosure Elite, Harmony, ICON, Picosure, Plexr). Our team of plastic surgeons, vascular surgeons, cosmetic podiatric surgeons, urologists, gynecologist, dermatologists, nurse and aestheticians treat a vast range of conditions including skin tightening, skin resurfacing, wrinkles, pore reduction, acne, scar reduction, stretch marks, pigmentation, nail fungus, tattoo removal, hair removal, varicose veins and thread veins.

The Cadogan Clinic remains family-owned and run and retains the same ethos to this day.
