Collagen is the magic ingredient that holds our skin together, providing elasticity and firmness, and we have it in abundance when we are young. In fact, our skin is composed of 80% collagen when we are younger, but after the age of 25 collagen production slows down significantly. Sun exposure and other bad habits can further deplete existing collagen.

We can see this reduction in collagen levels in the form of lines and wrinkles and sagging skin on our brow, around the nose and mouth and along the jawline.

All is not lost though; Collagen Injections can replenish our skin’s store of collagen, restoring more youthful contours and plumpness. Our Collagen Injections are composed of a collagen powder which, when injected into the dermis, stimulates production of fibroblasts, a cell that produces the connective tissues in the body including collagen.

Collagen Injections are used in a similar way to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers; they can tackle many of the visible signs of facial ageing that bother patients. This includes lines and wrinkles, sagging of the skin, loss of volume and changes to skin tone and quality and they are ideally suited to men and women who wish to tackle many of the signs of facial ageing.

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.

We love to hear our patients tell us that we have the feel of a local clinic right in the heart of London’s medical district.

Our Collagen Injections are safe with no side effects. It is also hypoallergenic, so you are unlikely to suffer an allergic reaction.
There may be some redness, swelling and tenderness at the injection site immediately after treatment, but this should disappear after a few days.
The collagen is injected in tiny amounts into the dermis, using a very thin and short needle. Our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz will deliver the collagen into the treatment area and then gently massage the skin.
Generally, we recommend two to four treatment sessions, but Dr Berkowitz can provide a bespoke treatment programme after your consultation where he will address the extent of facial ageing and loss of collagen that has occurred.
For patients that have started to notice that their skin is not as elastic, firm or smooth as it once was, Collagen Injections can produce a very subtle but effective rejuvenation.
Typically, you will start to see the results after a week or two post treatment. After you’ve completed the treatment programme, there will be a noticeable improvement in skin quality and health. Results can last 12 to 18 months and then we advise you follow a maintenance programme.

What our patients say

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.

I have nothing but praise for the team at the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre in London. I had been very nervous about having my Smart Lipo treatment last year, however, Dr Berkowitz was highly professional at all times and provided me with great advice and treatment. I was delighted with the results that were achieved during the procedure and it has left me feeling so much more confident about my body. I would certainly recommend the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre to anybody considering this procedure or a similar aesthetic treatment.

I had read about Thermage Skin Rejuvenation in a beauty magazine and decided to do some additional research on the internet. I found the website for Wimpole Aesthetics and contacted them discreetly via their online forms. Within a matter of minutes, I had a response from the receptionist at the clinic and she explained a little more about the procedure. I decided to book a private consultation to see Doctor Berkowitz and a few weeks later I had my skin tightening treatment. It was a great success and I’m so much happier with the general appearance and feel of my skin. The wrinkling around my eyes and on my neck is much improved and, as clichéd as it sounds, I feel years younger.

After years of worry about my “saddlebags”, I found Dr Berkowitz at Wimpole Aesthetics. He was extremely professional, but at the same time extremely friendly and answered all of my questions about the Vaser Lipo procedure. It has been 6 weeks since the procedure and I am so happy with how my body is looking. I also cannot forget to mention his wife Carol and nurses Jackie and Christina – they are brilliant!

I read about the new Vaser Lipo treatment in a men’s magazine and was instantly interested. As Dr Berkowitz was one of the only specialists in the country providing the treatment, it was a natural progression to visit him for a consultation at the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre. I found his advice and knowledge first-class and his staff made me feel very at ease. As such, I went ahead with the treatment and, in the end, a combination of the Vaser Lipo and Smart Lipo techniques were used to treat me. There has been no looking back since and my dream of having a six-pack has finally come true!

I recently had Vaser Lipo on several areas of my body… my stomach, arms and chin. I found the entire process painfree and I am thoroughly enjoying the remarkable improvements to my body shape.

I found that no matter how often I trained or how strictly I dieted, I could not shift the layer of fat around the bottom of my stomach – therefore leaving me with a bulge which I found most unattractive. Not keen on liposuction, I had spent a lot of time researching alternative methods of getting rid of my unwanted fat, and by chance, I stumbled across Vaser Lipo. I booked in for a free consultation with Dr Berkowitz at the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre in London and after a friendly and honest assessment, I went ahead with the treatment. I saw instant results, however, the real changes occurred in the 4 – 12 weeks following the procedure. A huge thanks to all of the staff at the clinic for enabling me to achieve the look and body that I have always wanted!
