What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

As the name implies this treatment induces the skin and its deeper layers to make large amounts of new collagen. This collagen can then lift and tighten and improve the skin.

Collagen Induction Therapy also has an anti-ageing effect. It enables greater absorption of stimulating growth peptide serums which nourish and improve the quality of the skin.

The Collagen Induction Therapy Procedure

Collagen induced therapy is an ideal treatment for patients who want to reduce the appearance of scar tissue. For example, you can lessen scars caused by acne. 

The treatment stimulates the blood supply to the areas being treated. Thereby, encouraging new skin cell growth and repair as well as stimulating the production of new collagen.

How does Collagen Induced Therapy work?

Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as microneedling, works by creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin’s surface using fine needles. These controlled injuries stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, prompting your body to increase collagen production and elastin fibres. 

As the skin heals, it becomes smoother, firmer, and more even in tone and texture. Additionally, the micro-channels formed during the procedure enhance the absorption of topical skincare products, maximising their effectiveness.

What does the process involve?

To avoid any risk of infection, Collagen Induction Therapy must be performed under completely sterile conditions. First, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned and then we will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area of your face or body.

Once numb, a hand-held multi-needled medical roller device will then be rapidly moved back-and-forth across the area to be treated, causing the sterile needles to penetrate into your skin.

It normally takes about 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic cream to numb the area, and a further 30 minutes to complete each treatment of Collagen Induction Therapy. You will need a short rest and can then be away, so you may be in the London clinic for about 90 minutes.

What happens after the procedure is finished?

There are minimal side effects to this treatment. However, right after the procedure, your skin will look quite red, but this redness should fade in a day or two.

Over the next few weeks you will start to notice the visible signs of skin regeneration and repair. You’ll notice a much-improved complexion, reduced appearance of acne scarring and more even skin tone.

How long do the results last?

The results of Collagen Induced Therapy typically last for months, but you may need follow-up maintenance treatments to keep your skin looking flawless.

What Does Getting Started With Us Look Like?

If you’ve been considering an aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin or reshape your body, then the first step is to get in touch with the clinic to arrange a consultation with our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz or one of his team, depending on your requirements.

Call us on 0207 224 2247 or email us on info@wimpoleaesthetics.co.uk to arrange your consultation.

The consultation is an essential part of the patient journey as it gives us the opportunity to discuss your objectives and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. We will talk you through the procedure or treatment plan, clearly explain any possible risks and the results you can expect, as well as answer all of your questions.

Procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are carried out under the direction of our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz and his team. We aim to deliver practical, safe and effective medical aesthetic alternatives to cosmetic surgery whilst always respecting a patient’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality.

Our care and support continues after you leave the clinic. You are provided with comprehensive aftercare advice appropriate to the treatment you have received and we welcome patients getting in touch if they have any questions regarding their experience and results.

At Wimpole Aesthetics, we provide a wide variety of medical treatments and non-surgical rejuvenating procedures in the field of anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine. Our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz stays abreast of the latest developments in this field, but always ensures that any treatment we offer can deliver safe and effective results.

Our Doctors

At Wimpole Aesthetics in London, our cosmetic physicians and dedicated support staff are resolutely committed to ensuring your contentment throughout your entire journey.

Under the guidance of Dr. Joshua Berkowitz, our team provides a range of expert treatments while placing a strong emphasis on a patient-centric approach.

Dr Josh Berkowitz - Medical Doctor

Heading our clinic as Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Joshua Berkowitz personally oversees the training of our nursing support personnel and aestheticians, guaranteeing hands-on supervision and direction.

Dr Natalie Hammer

Dr. Natalie Hammer serves as an Aesthetic Medicine Practitioner, holding registration with the GMC as a qualified doctor. With a medical background spanning 14 years, she has dedicated 8 of those years to the field of aesthetics.

No, it should not hurt as we use local anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area beforehand.
The immediate visual effect after Collagen Induction Therapy is a series of tiny pink or red needle marks on your skin. These close rapidly because the skin will automatically start its usual healing processes. The marks will often disappear the same day, but your skin may appear as if you have moderate sunburn for a day or two.
You will be given advice on a suitable lotion to sooth and calm your skin until all the redness has disappeared, and instructions on how to wash and care for your skin at home, including how to protect your skin from sunlight.
Collagen Induction Therapy involves a course of three or more treatments plus continuing therapy at home, assessed by your practitioner during your consultation and based on the condition of your skin before treatment. It isn’t a quick-fix treatment. It takes several weeks for the skin to stimulate and form new collagen after this treatment, gradually giving visible signs of regeneration and an improved complexion.
For ongoing skin stimulation, a handheld non-medical multi-needled roller can be used at home. The needles on this roller are much shorter and finer, so no anaesthetic is necessary. You will be given full instructions on how to continue the treatment at home, to enhance and prolong the skin health benefits.
Over the next few weeks you will start to notice the visible signs of skin regeneration and repair, with a much-improved complexion, reduced appearance of acne scarring and more even skin tone.

What our patients say

Natalie and Dr Josh have been incredible in boosting my confidence and my skin! They truly listen and deliver 100% natural results every time. Natalie is completely honest, professional, has integrity and that’s why I trust her fully. Wimpole clinic have a much greater range of cutting edge treatments beyond anti wrinkle treatment that have resulted in my skin improving with age. It’s mad but true. They always assess what is right for my face and my skin on the day and advise according to what my skin needs. I’ve been going to Wimpole Aesthetics for years now, initially drawn to their incredible IV boosts but am now unable to ever turn back. Class, quality and aesthetic results that are truly worth it!!!

I have been living with scarring above my upper lip, as a result of electrolysis treatment 25 years ago, in the form of a deep vertical line and small indentations in the skin. I sought help from Wimpole Aesthetics, and from the moment that I entered the small, personal clinic I was totally put at ease and welcomed by the extremely professional and friendly team. I received a course of Mesotherapy and Dermapen treatment and am absolutely delighted with the results. I had almost given up on ever having smooth line-free skin above my upper lip again. I highly recommend letting Wimpole Aesthetics take care of you.

Having lived in Australia for over 10 years, my skin had suffered mild sun-damage and had developed a lot of discolouration on my face in particular. Also, as I approached the age of 40, I noticed a lot of wrinkles appearing! I decided to have Microdermabrasion treatment and the improvements after just 3 treatments were extremely encouraging. I have booked a further 2 treatments in coming months and I am so excited about seeing further benefits to the look and texture of my skin.
