Dr. Leah Clinic’s turnover has grown to £1.6m a year, allowing her to open a third clinic located in Baker Street, alongside her other branches in Moorgate, London and Loughton, Essex.

Dr. Leah Totton, founder of Dr. Leah Clinics commented: “It’s been really exciting to continue to build on our success and expand Dr. Leah Clinics to a third location. I am humbled by the success we have had to date, with our Moorgate clinic winning “Best Cosmetic clinic in London” for the past two consecutive years. To have a clinic like our Baker street one within the medical district of central London was always been a dream of mine so today is a special day. I am excited to lead innovation in this industry and expand our treatment offering to new more advanced treatments whilst still remaining true to our core values of clinical excellence and safety.”
Lord Sugar commented: ‘It’s been fantastic to see Dr.Leah’s business grow over the last six years, deservingly so. Dr. Leah has worked tirelessly to make Dr. Leah Clinics a success, her clinics have won national prizes and turnover £1.6m a year, this is set to double in the coming year with the opening of this new branch. To have now three clinics and one of this scale and spec in the heart of central London is a great achievement.”
Dr Leah is a spokesperson for safety in the cosmetic industry, she commented:
“The cosmetic sector is completely unregulated, which means it is perfectly legal for a non-medical person with no training whatsoever, to purchase dermal filler online and inject it into someone’s face. Over the past few years we have seen the stigma around cosmetic treatments decrease dramatically particularly in the 25 and under age group with demand for cosmetic procedures increasing within this group who see procedures glamourised on social media and on reality TV shows. The majority of revision cases I see are clients under the age of 25 who have had botched work performed by non-medical professionals on cut price deals and the outcomes can be devastating. It is a worrying trend, there is a lot of pressure on young people to look “selfie” perfect and young people are putting themselves at risk in order to do so. There needs to be more education around the need to seek out adequately qualified medical practitioners and thoroughly research the treatment prior to undertaking any cosmetic procedure.”
