Before photos will be taken at the initial consultation to monitor and chart the course of skin improvement. Our staff are highly experienced light and laser practitioners and understand the potential hazards of light treatment.

Only a few clinics in the UK have the advanced IPL machine that we have. The Skin Clinic has invested in such technology because of its superior and safer clinical results and because we want to deliver the highest standards possible for our clients.
The new generation IPL machines achieve outstanding clinical results. The new generation MPL electro-0ptical technology is the safest technology of this type on the market and is safe in virtually all skin types, including darker skin types which have a higher concentration of melanin. It also achieves better results on lighter haired individuals which many other machines have difficulty with. We always do a patch test on clients before proceeding to treatment to ensure that the treatment is tolerated well. All our treatments are done in house by highly trained Doctors and Nurses who have an in depth knowledge of dermatology and skin medicine. The Skin Clinic Sevenoaks has a flawless clinical reputation and prides itself on dermatological excellence.
Hair can be permanently removed by pulsed light (IPL/MPL) that delivers tiny pulses of light to the hair follicle that stops hair growing without damaging any other parts of the skin. Active acne can be treated with pulsed light because the light can target and destroy the bacteria Proprionoibacterium acnes, the bacteria central to the pathogenesis of acne. It also can help reduce sebum production which also helps reduce acne. Dr Ward’s special interest is acne treatment with light and her dissertation on this subject was awarded a distinction. In the treatment of thread veins the light breaks down the haemoglobin molecules. The Skin Clinic has invested in this technology because it gives superior clinical results and is safer in all skin types. This technology is fast becoming known as the Gold Standard in places such as the USA and Australia which are ahead of the UK in the field of aesthetics.
Dr Ward always gets it just right with my treatments and ensures that they look subtle and natural, just the way i like. I started on the Obagi skin care programme and since then there has been no looking back.. Obagi is the best kept secret in anti-ageing!![Jennifer, Kent ]
I often model on Dr Jo’s Botox and fillers course and its great to see her pass on her knowledge and enthusiasm to other professionals. She is clearly highly respected in this industry but what is wonderful is that she hasnt lost that lovely personal and warm touch. This is what sets her apart..Its always a pleasure to be involved”[Kate, Surrey ]
Dr Ward was the first person to really take my son’s acne seriously.. it was like a breath of fresh air..Thank you for listening and for understanding how acne can affect so much in a young person’s life. I highly recommend Doctor Jo Ward to anyone who has struggled in silence with a skin problem”[Jane, Surrey ]
I first met Dr Ward in her Harley Street clinic. Since then I have followed her to every clinic she has ever worked in!! Such is my faith in her… When you find a reliable and excellent cosmetic physician, travelling a few extra miles is worth it..”[Alex, London ]
The new Skin Clinic in Sevenoaks is wonderful. I have no doubt Dr Ward will soon have a queue at her clinic door..Not only is she the best injector in town but she is so warm and so passionate about what she does its infectious.. I leave every consultation with a renewed interest in my skin”[Rose, Kent ]
