Laser hair removal is ideal for people with dark hair and light complexion. One of our most important pieces of advice is to thoroughly investigate any medical spa you may consider using, as well as the equipment and expertise of the technician. To be most successful, lasers are often used to remove hair follicles from the face, under the arm, the bikini line, and the legs. Because of this, laser hair removal is ideal for removing darker, coarser hairs while without damaging the excess skin surrounding the region.

How Many Sessions of Santa Barbara Laser Hair Removal Are Needed?

The number of sessions for laser hair removal typically ranges from two to six. Depending on where you are, the intervals between treatments may vary. The treatment is performed just once every four to eight weeks, in regions of the upper lip where hair grows rapidly. Treatments may be given every 12 to 16 weeks in regions of poor hair growth, such as the back.

Is Laser Hair Removal in Santa Barbara Permanent?

Traction alopecia, the result of hair loss from an empty hair follicle, is permanent. However, some hair in the target region may come back after hair removal. The longer you treat the region, the less hairs will come back. It is feasible to get rid of all body hair in certain circumstances. Depending on the stage of the cycle of hair that regrows and the competence of the person removing the hair, whether hair comes back is variable. For the most part, individuals report that their hair becomes lighter and less visible as hair regrows. This is because even when the laser treatment fails to kill the hair follicle, it may still harm it. The hair will regenerate if the follicle is injured but not destroyed. Most individuals will experience some hair regrowth; thus, it is hard to completely kill all the hair follicles, but the goal is permanent hair reduction with this laser hair removal service.

Waxing Santa Barbara

We offer a variety of waxing Santa Barbara services, such as:

  • Leg Waxing (half and full)
  • Facial Hair Waxes

When it comes to managing your unwanted hair, SB Aesthetics offers the most competitive pricing and advanced treatments. Did you know that our results will last from three to eight weeks? Unlike shaving, which causes the hair to appear more coarse and thick upon its return, waxing takes the hair away from the root. This allows the hair to grow back far more slowly (and finer/softer) as hair follicles start to break down over the long haul.

Do’s and Don’ts of Waxing:


– Exfoliate treatment area before the appointment

– Hair must be at least 1/4 of an inch for proper removal

– No waxing during menstrual cycle because of increased sensitivity for certain treatment areas

– 1 or 2 Advil may be taken prior to your treatment to increase the comfort level


– Make sure all treatment areas are moisturized

– Exfoliate for 48 hours after the treatment is complete

– Avoid direct sun exposure to the treatment area for at least 24 hours

– Use topical cortisone to for reducing any swelling and/or redness
