How Does It Work?


Hair removal can be painful, messy, and ineffective. But SPLENDOR X laser hair removal with BLEND X technology is different. It combines two lasers, the Alexandrite and Nd: YAG, for a perfectly tailored treatment that is fast, effective, and comfortable. The SPLENDOR X is the world’s first laser to feature a square-shaped spot that safely covers every inch of skin being treated.


Laser hair removal uses laser light energy with a specific wavelength. During treatment, lasers emit energy in the form of light onto the skin. The melanin in the hair absorbs this energy and converts it into heat which then destroys the hair follicles to prevent or stop future growth. BLEND X technology harnesses the power of two wavelengths for greater effectiveness for hair-free skin.

About Splendor X Laser Hair Removal Treatments

At Rise Wellness Lounge, we love the Splendor X laser for a variety of reasons:


  • Blend X — The Splendor X synchs two laser wavelengths, Nd:YAG (1064nm) and Alexandrite (755nm) into one delivery option. This enables us to adjust the treatment to the patient’s skin type, hair color, and hair thickness.
  • Square shape spot sizes — The Splendor X delivers its laser energy in a square spot shape. This is an improvement over the usual circular spot shapes. This allows our technicians to cover the treatment areas in a uniform pattern. This eliminates overlap and the need for later touch-ups of missed spots.
  • Fast treatments — The Splendor X has a large spot size, 27 mm x 27 mm, and a rapid repetition rate. This makes for much faster treatment times.
  • Cooling — Splendor X features a dual cooling system designed to deliver contact cooling and cold air exactly over the treated area. This keeps our patients comfortable during their laser hair removal sessions.

Splendor X delivers laser energy in fast repetitions onto the unwanted hair. The large spot sizes and square shape ensure we completely cover the entire area without any missed portions or unnecessary overlap. The two laser wavelengths allow us the ultimate flexibility to adjust the energy delivered for any skin type and hair color.


Once we’ve matched the laser wavelength to the color of the melanin in your unwanted hair, the Splendor X delivers short, fast bursts of laser energy down onto the unwanted hairs. At the same time, the system’s dual cooling system delivers contact cooling directly onto the skin and cold air over the wider treated area. This keeps patients completely comfortable.


As the laser energy hits the unwanted hairs, the melanin in the hair shafts absorbs the light energy, which instantly converts to heat. This heat then travels down the hair shaft into the hair follicle where it is anchored. There the heat destroys or thoroughly damages the hair follicle, precluding it from producing hair in the future.

The Splendor X system combines high power with extensive variability, enabling us to treat a wide range of skin tones and hair colors with ultimate safety. The square spot size ensures we completely cover the treatment areas, without overlap. And the system’s dual cooling capabilities keep our clients ultimately comfortable.


Overall, laser hair removal has proven to be reliable, effective, and safe. Lasers have been used for laser hair removal for almost 30 years, and the process was extensively tested prior to becoming commercially available. The most common side effects after treatment include skin irritation, such as redness and slight swelling on the treatment sites. This usually passes within a few hours.

At Rise Wellness Lounge, we’ve been thrilled with the versatility of the Splendor X system. Lumenis has powered Splendor X with what it calls “Blend X” technology. This is the combination of nd: YAG and Alexandrite laser wavelengths. The two wavelengths can be synchronized to be fired with varying proportions, and this allows us to tailor our treatments according to the patient’s skin type, hair color, and hair thickness. This allows us to use the Splendor X for darker skin tones and lighter hair colors than could be treated by most lasers.


Typically, when addressing darker skin tones or lighter hair colors, the laser energy needs to be dramatically lowered because the laser has trouble differentiating between the hair color and skin color. That can lead to skin damage by the laser energy, hence the need to drop the power. The problem is: once you drop the power you don’t damage the skin, but you also don’t damage the hair follicle to the necessary degree.


We can avoid these issues with the Splendor X, thanks to the system’s versatility.

The technology and comfort delivered with the Splendor X Laser make it ultimately versatile in the areas where we can remove unwanted hair. You can have this laser remove hair across your body, with a few exceptions.


At Rise Wellness Lounge, the most popular areas are the underarms, bikini line, Brazilian, upper lip, sideburns, chin, legs, arms, chest, and back.

The only areas where you cannot have laser hair removal are inside the ears and in the nostrils.

That depends on the area treated and desired outcomes. As discussed above, for laser hair removal to be effective with any laser you need to catch as many hairs as possible in the growth phase. But every one of our five million + hairs operates independently, making it challenging to catch them in the growth phase.


The dual approach delivered by the Splendor X makes for shorter treatments on a wide range of hair and skin tones, but multiple sessions are necessary. Our experience between six and ten treatments achieves the degree of hair reduction that satisfies most clients.


Each session needs to be spaced from 4-6 weeks apart. Annual maintenance sessions can catch any follicles that were only partially damaged and returned to growing hair.

Sessions cannot be any more frequent than every 4 to 6 weeks.

Prior to their first appointment with the Splendor X Laser, some clients incorrectly assume that laser hair removal involves vaporizing the hairs with the laser energy, but that’s not how the process works. The laser energy delivered is much lower and it simply travels down the hair shaft and damages the hair follicle. When the laser pulses are delivered, patients feel a very brief prickling sensation. Most patients equate the feeling to that of a small rubber band being plucked on the skin. The Splendor X’s dual cooling mechanisms ensure your skin does not get too hot, so you stay comfortable during the treatment. Some areas are more sensitive than others, but these brief treatments are still more comfortable than shaving or waxing every couple of weeks forever.

There are certain things we tell our laser hair removal clients to do so that we are able to remove the most hair permanently. These are the things to pay attention to before your session with the Splendor X Laser:


  • Stay out of the sun — Lasers target the melanin in your hair shafts. Melanin gives your hair its color. It also gives your skin its color, and it causes the skin to darken when it receives UV radiation. For the Splendor X laser to most efficiently target your unwanted hair, the wavelength we set should differ dramatically from your skin color. So, stay out of the sun for 2-3 weeks prior to your session, and allow there to be a contrast between the color of your hair and the color of your skin.
  • No bronzers — Don’t use any sunless skin bronzers.
  • Don’t pluck or wax — The hair follicle needs to be happy and unsuspecting it is about to be damaged with laser energy. So, don’t do your normal hair removal stuff: no plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for at least one month prior to your session. Shaving is fine, as it doesn’t affect the hair follicles, only the hair shafts.
  • Don’t take blood thinners — Avoid any medications that can thin your blood. These are anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, and certain supplements.
  • Shave the day before — Shaving only removes the hair shaft above the skin; it doesn’t bother the hair follicle. Removing the hair above the skin removes the hair that can potentially lightly burn the skin when the laser energy converts to heat energy in the hair shaft. We want the energy down into the hair follicle.

There isn’t any recovery per se. The Dual Cooling System employed by the Splendor X, a combination of Cryo-Touch and Cryo-Air delivery, quickly removes heat from the tissue after the laser energy has been delivered onto the unwanted hair. This creates much less discomfort afterward than many other lasers used for laser hair removal. But if you have any discomfort, wet a soft washcloth with cold water and place it across the treated area for several minutes. You can also use an ice pack wrapped in a towel. We are available 24/7 to answer any questions that you may have.


Protecting your skin from the sun after laser hair removal is important. You’ll want to avoid sun on your treated areas for a few days before and after each laser session. Use plenty of Sunscreen.


You’ll want to avoid putting anything on your treated skin that can irritate. This includes self-tanning lotions, other lotions with fragrances or perfumes, and body scrubs. When your skin is sensitive, these will cause rashes or other irritation. If you’ve had your underarms treated, you’ll need to be careful with your deodorant, as it can irritate.

At Rise Wellness Lounge, the dual wavelength of our Splendor X Laser makes it a perfect hair removal tool for many of our clients. Of course, with any laser used, the timing of the unwanted hair is important for successful permanent hair removal.


Hair only responds to laser energy when in the growth (anagen) phase of the hair growth cycle. But hairs can also be in the catagen (transitional phase between growth and rest) or the telogen phase (rest). In the catagen and telogen phases, the body prepares to shed the hair, halting nourishment and releasing the hair bulb from the hair follicle. That’s why lasers don’t affect hair in these phases; they’re already on their way out. Because the hair is no longer anchored in the follicle, the laser energy can’t travel down the hair and damage or destroy the follicle. Since each of our millions of hairs can be in a different phase, you obviously can’t catch them all in the growth phase, no matter how many laser hair removal sessions you have.


Second, damaged follicles can rebuild with hormonal changes. Plus, if a follicle is only partially damaged, it may heal and begin to regrow hair.

Numerous studies show the degree of permanent hair reduction from 85 to 90 percent. Those are consistent with what our clients experience at Rise Wellness Lounge.
