The appropriate method of scar reduction treatment depends upon how it was caused in the first instance. Once a member of our team assesses your particular scar and circumstances, we will be able to help treat you accordingly with view to achieving the best possible results.

It is usually not possible to completely remove a surgical, traumatic or post-inflammatory scar. However, it may be possible to considerably reduce the appearance of the scar and the surrounding area. This may be a complex process or may be very simple depending upon the age of the scar, its position shape and size, as well as the cause of the scar.

At the first consultation you will be advised as to the recommended method of scar reduction treatment and the chances of getting a good result. You may be advised not to undergo scar reduction treatment, as not all scars can be reduced and improved.

We can use a number of different approaches to reduce or correct a scar and the appropriate method depends on the nature of the scar and where it is positioned. Also the expectations of the patient in terms of the end result must also be taken into account.

Scar reduction treatment could include the use of a fractional laser to resurface the overlying skin. Steroid injections can be used to treat keloid scarring. Sometimes, complete excision of the initial scar to produce a more aesthetic and less noticeable scar is the best option.

It is important that patients realise that is usually impossible to completely eradicate a scar, but their appearance can be greatly improved.

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.

The method of scar reduction treatment will depend upon the scar and how it was caused in the first instance such as surgical scars or cut, burns from hot water or acne of chicken pox scars. This may involve the use of an ablative fractional carbon dioxide laser to achieve some resurfacing or may require some steroid injections to reduce keloid scarring or may even include complete excision and revision of the scar.
The time of scar treatment, and the number of scar treatment sessions required, will depend upon the scar and upon the needs of the patient as well as the outcome they are looking to achieve.
This is completely dependent on the scar and the result the patient is hoping for. Some scar treatments are limited to how much better you can make the scar; some patients will want to be as near perfect as possible and others will be happy with a good improvement.
Scar reduction treatment usually does not hurt unless the scar is very complex to treat.
This depends on the nature of the scar and the treatment required – you will be advised of cost at your initial consultation.

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!
