At Wimpole Aesthetics, our aim is to put you in control of your drinking. The majority of patients we see in-clinic do not wish to abstain completely, but instead would like to gain the tools to manage their condition and eliminate the consequences of their drinking which has prompted them to seek treatment.

Our medical director, Dr Joshua Berkowitz, has been offering the Sinclair Method for many years since he first worked with Dr David Sinclair, the founder of this unique and innovative treatment method.

Dr David Sinclair proposed a method of treating alcohol addiction, dependence and abuse with Naltrexone. This short-acting opioid inhibitor is administered when one is continuing with your normal drinking habit and, over time, it allows you to take control of your alcohol consumption.

This alcohol addiction treatment works by blocking the receptors that trigger the positive effects that ethanol-dependent endorphins release in the brain. This medication is capable over time of changing addictive behaviours into non-addictive behaviours and can be an effective alcohol addiction treatment.

Results from the Sinclair Method have been highly successful and it works for about 80% of people who follow the method properly. The Method is not a magic pill though; it still relies on the patient’s personal commitment to the programme which is why Dr Berkowitz has modified his treatment protocols for his patients to improve its chance of success.

Based on a friendship and close working relationship with Dr David Sinclair of over three decades and from the personal experience of treating many patients during this time, Dr Berkowitz strongly believes that this modified Sinclair Method represents the best chance of success.

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.

All alcohol addiction patients at our clinic first need to detox and we offer a detoxification programme in clinic for them to follow. Then we advise the patient to drink every day for ten days, taking the tablets as instructed. It doesn’t have to be much – even just a unit or two – but the patient’s mind and body can then understand the relationship between alcohol consumption and the effects of Naltrexone.
After the initial phase, the patient need only take the tablet when they plan to drink, as per the original Sinclair Method, but the mind and body have recalibrated and the urge to drink excessively disappears while still allowing the patient to experience the normal enjoyments that life has to offer.
The Sinclair Method uses Naltrexone to change addictive behaviours into non-addictive behaviours. Naltrexone is an extremely safe drug and it is not habit forming. Side effects to using Naltrexone are experienced very rarely.
This is very patient dependent. Most patients that follow the programme properly will see significant progress after two to three months. For most patients, the craving to drink is eliminated after 12 to 18 months.

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!
