My Harley Street Journey

Find out how La Voix got on with her Thread Lift at The Harley Street Skin Clinic

We're fortunate to have worked with many faces in our time - including a few you might recognise. We wanted to check in with some of our favourites to hear all about their Harley Street Skin experiences. That way, you're able to approach your own personal journey with a little bit more confidence. How does that sound?

Here's what stage and screen star, La Voix, had to say about undergoing a Thread Lift with our very own Dr Khan...

DO YOU REMEMBER THE VERY MOMENT YOU DECIDED TO GO AHEAD WITH TREATMENT?

I was looking at some press photographs from a show last year, the dress was flawless, the hair, the make up... yet I had no chin - all jowls. Seriously, I was useless at trying to fold sheets. I hadn't realised how my jaw definition had gone and this is hard to say but… I had a double chin. I thought 'that has to go'.

WHAT WERE YOUR PROBLEM AREAS?

For me, it was the jawline and the jowls thing which I was concerned about, so the thought of having that definition back - or better than it ever was - that was a no brainer. I didn't ever think of a facelift connected to bone structure, I just thought of it as older women having sagging skin cranked up. When Dr Khan said 'well we can do this, and it's threads, and it's quick', I was like 'Okay great! I'm free now!'

HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS?

I feel fabulous - it looks so natural, which is just what I'd hoped for. You never want to look overdone, you know? I'm all about subtlety, darling... why are you laughing?

WHAT WAS IT ABOUT THE HARLEY STREET SKIN CLINIC THAT TOOK YOUR FANCY?

Dr Khan is so thorough and explains things so simply and easily, and also has the best beautiful home-from-home clinic you've seen. When you sit down he goes 'well we can do X, Y, Z, and that'll give you THIS.'

For me, there was no time thinking 'hmmm'. It was like picking gowns, when you know it's right, you know it's right. There was a little bit of time thinking 'Am I too young to have this done?' but then some friends said 'No you're not.' (laughs) I was like, 'Oh, thanks!'...they're not friends anymore.

CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PROCEDURE DAY?

It was wonderful, and let me tell you something, I can understand why they call it the 'lunchtime facelift'. It was that quick and there was no pain at all. I do remember not being able to say certain words or consonants 'cause my mouth was all numb, but I could do a fabulous Shirley Bassey impression. It's a shame that wore off, actually.

Afterwards, I was treated to a nice sugary cup of tea (with a saucer!), hailed a cab and was on my merry way. Seriously. Back to normality that quickly.

HAVE THERE BEEN ANY PERKS THAT YOU WEREN'T EXPECTING?

I've never been able to wear necklaces without them being lost in the jowls when I sing. So Dr Khan has made me a woman who can shop beyond just earrings and bracelets. I might even go shopping after our chat and try on neck scarves and diamond chokers down Bond Street just because I can - I finally have a jawline and neck!

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL PEOPLE THAT WERE ON THE FENCE ABOUT TAKING A SIMILAR ROUTE?

It's so so painless and it's so quick, it really is. It feels a bit odd, 'cause obviously you can feel a bit of pressure and stuff but it's no more than a really simple dental procedure. I just think for the results you get, and the time, and the lack of pain… it's totally worth it.

And if you're gonna spend £100 on skincare and all this stuff… this is a guaranteed result, and it's so quick. It's been around for decades, it's not new, it's not a trial thing - there's no risk of 'oh this could go wrong.' This has been around since the early 90's, so it's well and truly practised and tried. There's probably more people that have had it done than you realise.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER POPPING BACK TO THE CLINIC IN FUTURE?

Oh absolutely - I'm already booked in, darling! And you will definitely see me approaching Panto season - I do it every year so I'm afraid you'll probably be seeing quite a lot more of me! When you start doing your makeup and think 'ooh that doesn't look quite as good as it used to,' it's time for a car straight to Harley Street!
