Minor Skin Surgery
The Skin Clinic has a fully equipped minor surgery suite. Minor cosmetic procedures such as skin tag removal and benign mole removal can be arranged. All minor skin surgery at The Skin Clinic is performed by an experienced Doctor. It is the clinic’s policy to send all pigmented skin lesions for histology (examination under a microscope) to ensure that they are benign/normal. Your Doctor will advise you further about this during your consultation.
There are several different ways that skin lesions/skin tags/warts can be removed. Warts and skin tags often respond to the use of liquid nitrogen (deep freeze) called cryotherapy. Moles and some skin tags need to be shaved off or excised (cut out). Prior to any shave or excision procedure you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area so that you cannot feel it.
After the procedure you will be given wound care/aftercare advice and a follow up appointment will be arranged if necessary.
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 ]
