Aaron Carr Owner Operator Highland Laser Clinic

Our Story

Hi there. My name is Aaron. I’m from Knoydart and live in Inverness with my wife and two wains. I was a children’s intensive care nurse in Edinburgh, and London. In Bristol I worked as a retrieval nurse with WATCh. After moving back home to the Highlands, I helped develop the kiddy’s High Dependency Unit at Raigmore as well as national standards for the care of very sick kids across Scotland. 

Nursing taught me an awful lot and I'm proud of my career, but after 20 years I felt a strong need to do something else. I will not be renewing my nursing registration in 2019 but I retain a scientific approach and total commitment to the golden rule of healthcare which is to do no harm

I started Highland Tattoo Removal in August 2015 and since then have become established as the premier tattoo removal service in the North of Scotland with many satisfied customers from the local area and as far afield as Shetland, the Western Isles, Aberdeen and the Central Belt.

For 2019 I have rebranded to Highland Laser Clinic and invested in the latest pulsed dual laser system to build upon my Tattoo Removal service and offer additional treatments. I have clinical and technical support from the dynamic people at Advanced Esthetic Services and I use cutting edge Italian built Quanta technology.

Business Model

I am an entrepreneur, yet I apply the nursing model from my previous career to my business. My priorities are:

 Safety

I draw upon my extensive medical training to keep you safe. My supplier provides advanced training, support and clinical supervision where needed. I patch test all clients before treatment and I am fully insured.

Unfortunately the vast majority of aesthetic laser procedures are completely unregulated in Scotland. Anyone can legally buy a cheap Chinese laser off the internet and start offering treatments without any real idea of what they are doing, or the considerable risk that they pose to trusting members of the public. I see the damage caused by cowboys depressingly often.

 Efficacy

I will only ever offer procedures which I believe are effective, safe and which have a good chance of providing the results that you expect or hope for. I discuss all risk factors in detail before seeking your consent for procedures. I pride myself in offering plain and honest advice as impartially as I can. There is no hard sell.

Value

Highland Laser Clinic is a fully equipped modern facility. It is also attached to my family home hidden in the woods of Torbreck up a leafy single track lane on the edge of Inverness.

I prefer to invest in world class technology rather than a boutique clinic on the high street with receptionists, retail and all the costs that entails. This allows me to offer highly competitive prices given the quality of the service on offer.
