The Daily Mail featured Clinicbe founder and Aesthetic Physician Dr Barbara Kubicka in Femail’s recent exploration of collagen. 

sculptraThe journalist tested a number of products and treatments to try to regenerate collagen, which makes up 80% of the skin but depletes after the age of 25, making the skin appear less firm and supple and contributing to the appearance of lines and wrinkles with the ageing process.

Over an 8 week period, she started with a ‘before’ collagen measurement followed by supplements.

She then visited Dr Barbara Kubicka at Clinicbe in Belgravia for Sculptra treatment.

Sculptra uses polylactic acid injections to trigger collagen production within the skin to create a more youthful appearance.

She also tried the ‘burning spoon’ heating treatment said to be favoured by Gwyneth Paltrow and a skin cream high in copper.

After 8 weeks her skin was measured again and had improved the collagen content by 5%, showing a thicker dermis too.

She commented:

While it’s impossible to pin down which of the treatments has worked best – or if it’s a combination of all of them – aesthetic dermatologist Dr Kuldeep Minocha of the Absolute Aesthetics clinic, who reviewed the results, says Sculptra has been shown to be the most effective.


Dr Kubicka takes a holistic approach to skincare treatments; treating the patient as a whole in order to get the best possible results from any treatments they may have. Private consultations often include individual advice on nutrition, hydration and lifestyle as well as professional treatments.
