Laser Hair Removal could be the answer. In this article, Emma Rothery, owner of Thame’s newest business, ERA Skin & Laser Clinic explains more about this popular treatment.
What is it and How does it work?
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. The laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which affects the hair follicles that produce hairs. This stops or delays future hair growth. Hair grows in three phases, so to ensure all hair is targeted multiple treatments are always required. The lasers are quick, painless and able to treat all skin types.
Am I Suitable for laser hair removal?
We can treat all skin tones and most hair colours because we use advanced lasers. Common treatment locations include legs, underarms, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. However, it’s possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area. Risks of side effects vary depending on your skin type, hair colour, treatment plan and adherence to pre-treatment and post-treatment care. The most common side effects of laser hair removal include skin irritation and pigment changes which are usually temporary.
What happens next?

If you’re happy to go ahead, we will agree a treatment plan and take before-and-after photographs for assessment and review at your future treatment sessions. Treatment costs start at £69.00.
