The Beauty Editor – Supporting Cancer Survivors

By Lynton Lasers / 13 Mar 2020

The Beauty Editor, a leading laser specialist in Bishop’s Stortford, East Herts is pioneering a campaign to support the many people who have fought, and continue to fight, the battle against breast cancer.

Before radiotherapy treatment can begin, patients are tattooed with pin-point black or blue dots to enable the accurate targeting of the treatment. Whilst some feel that their tattoos are marks of strength and survival, many would prefer not to have this permanent reminder and would like to have their tattoos removed.

The Beauty Editor is offering to remove these surgical tattoos, free of charge, at her Bishop’s Stortford clinic, and would like to encourage other Lynton approved clinics to also offer this free treatment.

This cause is especially close to the heart of Katie Thompson-Ashton, founder and managing director of The Beauty Editor, who lost her mother to cancer in 2016. “I’m offering this service as a way of giving back to the community, and to help out the men and women who have already been through so much" – Katie Thompson-Ashton

The Beauty Editor uses a state-of-the-art Laser and Intense Pulsed Light system (IPL) called the Lynton LUMINA. The Lynton LUMINA is a medical-grade and award-winning system, used by the NHS and private hospitals across the UK. Its active Q-Switched laser is considered the gold standard in tattoo removal and delivers exceptional clinical results.

Though the service is free, registration is required alongside clearance from your Oncologist. A full medical consultation will also be completed to ensure you are a suitable candidate for tattoo removal.
