Laser Hair Reduction
Less Razors, Lasting Results
Based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, laser hair removal targets the entire hair structure, from the hair shaft down to the follicle. Light energy with a specific wavelength is absorbed by the endogenous chromosphere melanin, resulting in the rapid heating and subsequent local thermal necrosis of the follicles’ regenerative structures.
Binary Laser Emission of Nd:YAG and Alexandrite
The Splendor X system allows Premier technicians customize hair removal across a wide range of skin tones like never before. Regardless of the patient’s skin type, laser technicians can choose the optimal wavelength to maximize comfort and efficacy of the laser hair reduction treatment.
Extreme Power, Unprecedented Speed
Splendor X is very powerful, at 250W output power it provides rapid coverage rate combining high fluence, large spot size, and high repetition rate. All of this meaning that we are able to cover larger treatment areas with more efficiency and speed, giving you much quicker treatment times.
The Splendor X handpiece is integrated with plume evacuator and HEPA filter. This provides a smoke-free environment and ensures the well-being of our patients and providers. The handpiece is contains a dual-cooling system, Cryo-Touch and Cryo-Air. These cooling sources make the treatment more comfortable by actively removing heat from the skin.

How Does It Work?
Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) devices send specific concentrated beams of light through the skin that are absorbed by the melanin (dark) pigment present in the hair follicle shafts. Because hair grows in cycles, repeated treatments are necessary to destroy the hair follicles. In general, three or more treatments are required to achieve permanent hair growth reduction.
Will it work for me?
Darker hair responds best to laser hair removal. Lighter-colored hair is least responsive, but topical medications can be used in an effort to increase effectiveness. Be sure to avoid tanning or sunless tanners and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen for up to six weeks prior to treatment.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects include discomfort, swelling, and redness that last one to three days. Other possible side effects include blistering, herpes simplex outbreaks, bacterial infections and temporary skin lightening or darkening (especially in patients with skin of color or those with tans). Patients are instructed to avoid sun exposure and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or higher following the procedure.
