Tattoo removal has been on a steady rise for years and this programme has helped raise awareness that it’s more popular than people might think. Getting a tattoo in the first place is a big lifestyle decision. The presenter of the programme, Katie Piper importantly points out that “Tattoos and the like can hold back your whole career and the thing is nowadays we’re seeing them almost as make-up, no big thing, but it’s permanent. People are doing it on a whim.” If this sounds like you then laser tattoo removal treatment can help you get your career back on track. Here at Andrea Catton Laser Clinic we have the most advanced laser tattoo removal machine in the world – the Cynosure PicoSure. You can see the laser in action by watching the video below.
