The Splendor X™ laser system can treat more varied skin types than many other laser hair removal systems. Under the Fitzpatrick skin tone classification system, Splendor X™ can treat skin tones I-VI.
Laser hair removal/reduction provides more long-term results than traditional hair removal procedures like waxing, plucking, or other topical treatments.
While hair removal is the system’s primary purpose, our laser system can also treat wrinkles and skin discoloration. This gives patients more flexibility and control over their aesthetic results.
Before the procedure, patients will meet with Dr. Pearce for an evaluation. Here, he will confirm that laser hair removal is a viable treatment to address their specific concerns. This will usually include a brief examination of the target areas and discussing the patient’s goals.
Once Dr. Pearce has confirmed the procedure is appropriate, he will answer any questions about the treatment.
Hair can be removed from nearly anywhere on the body, and skin can be treated for a host of vascular and pigmentation concerns. Patients can pick and choose target areas to meet their personalized goals.
The Splendor X™ uses a unique square-shaped laser emitter to ensure uniform coverage with no overlap. This means that there will be no missed areas or unnecessary pulses that can lead to burns or hot spots.
During the procedure, the laser applicator is guided over the target areas, eliminating hair follicles. This process can take between 15 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the size of the area treated and the number of target areas.
The Splendor X™ applicator has several built-in cooling systems to prevent burns. These systems ensure that only hair follicles and skin discoloration are affected by the laser treatment.
Most patients will require multiple laser treatments to eliminate hair growth in the targeted areas. The number of sessions needed will vary depending on the thickness and color of the hair.
Patients should see significant results after only one treatment, but most require four to six treatments to achieve ideal results.
Local side-effects vary from patient to patient. Some patients can experience redness and swelling in the treatment area, which will dissipate over the following hours and days. Others may experience skin peeling or skin sensitivity. Most side effects are minor and pass within a few days.
Patients should take care to avoid direct sunlight for a week or two following their laser hair removal treatment. Patients should also avoid using topical products like creams, moisturizers, or makeup on the treated areas for two to three days.
Thanks to the integrated Dual Cooling System (DCS) administered with your Splendor X™ laser, hair removal is more comfortable than ever before.
This controlled cooling eliminates the need for numbing cream and reduces post-treatment discomfort.
Patients may experience a minor tingling sensation during treatment but should not feel pain or burning.
Non-surgical laser hair removal is safe and effective. Still, certain side effects can occur, such as unwanted skin discoloration. These side effects can usually be addressed with follow-up treatments.
Unlike many previous hair removal technologies, the Splendor X™ is safe and appropriate for all skin and hair types.
This technology provides uniform treatment coverage for patients year round — even when tanned or darker skin tones are present.
This system is among the safest, most reliable, and best laser hair removal technologies on the market. This helps patients enjoy long-lasting results.
Anyone with unwanted hair on their body is a potential candidate for laser hair removal. Ideal candidates will be in good health and have no medical conditions that could complicate treatment. Patients should have realistic expectations of their results.
The cost of your laser hair removal with the Splendor X™ will depend on the size and number of treated areas, as well as the number of sessions required.
You will be given an accurate cost estimate during your consultation based on your personalized treatment plan.
Patients should shave the targeted areas two days before treatment. This ensures that the laser targets the hair follicles rather than burning hair above the skin (which can cause burns or blisters). Patients should not shave within eight hours of treatment to reduce skin irritation following treatment.
Laser hair removal targets and destroys hair follicles beneath the skin. Most hair follicles that are eliminated by laser treatments will not grow back. Some patients may find that thinner, lighter hairs begin to grow back in the treatment area years later.
Fortunately, such hairs are usually difficult to see and are easy to treat with further laser treatments.
