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; LinErase Collagen Injections can replenish our skin’s store of collagen, restoring more youthful contours and plumpness.

Collagen Injections FAQs
What are LinErase Collagen Injections?
LinErase is 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.
What can LinErase Collagen Injections treat?
LinErase 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.
Are LinErase Collagen Injections safe?
LinErase Collagen is safe with no side effects. It is also hypoallergenic so you are unlikely to suffer an allergic reaction. It has received the CE 0373 mark.
There may be some redness, swelling and tenderness at the injection site immediately after treatment, but this should disappear after a few days.
What happens during a treatment?
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.
What results can I expect?
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 beautifully-natural skin 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.
