Diamond microdermabrasion involves passing a diamond tip over the skin to exfoliate and stimulate the skin. Microdermabrasion is a mild treatment that removes cellular debris from the surface of the skin, stimulates the circulation and encourages a stronger more healthy skin. Traditionally microdermabrasion is done using crystals but here at The Skin Clinic we use a diamond microdermabrasion machine to get the best results for your skin.
Your treatment will take approximately 20-30 minutes. The diamond tips are used to abrade the skin and suction is used to remove dead skin cells. The treatment is not painful and you can return to normal activities immediately after your treatment. Your skin may be slightly red and feel a little tight after your treatment but this will settle down in a few hours. The risk of pigmentation from this procedure is small and usually settles within the first month and the risk of scarring is very small. Your clinician will take a full medical history and ensure your skin is suitable for treatment prior to any treatment.
Microdermabrasion is not suitable for hyperpigmented skin or those with broken veins. Anyone with active coldsores/herpes infection should avoid treatment until resolved.
Results are subtle with microdermabrasion. You can expect your skin to feel revived and refreshed but will need a course of treatments to really benefit from the procedure. Treatments can be done weekly during a course of treatments and then maintained every few months for best results.
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 leave every consultation with a renewed interest in my skin”[Rose, Kent ]
