At some point, it will become obvious that your over-the-counter products just aren’t cutting it anymore for your beauty goals. Whether it’s dealing with razor burn from ineffective razors and shaving cream or doling out time and money on anti-wrinkles that don’t hold up their end of the bargain, finding the right treatment to achieve and maintain your beauty standards can be difficult. Fortunately, at Viva Wellness in Marietta, GA, we know the Lumenis SplendorX Laser is a safe and effective treatment that can help you reach all of your aesthetic goals.
What Is Lumenis SplendorX?
Lumenis SplendorX is an advanced laser treatment system that can effectively treat several aesthetic concerns, from pigmentation to hair removal. This revolutionary system combines two powerful laser technologies into a simple one-step device that can quickly treat larger areas of the body at one time. This is the first laser treatment to combine Nd:YAG and Alexandrite laser technology into a Blend X system that increases speed and power without harming the skin.
This Lumenis laser system features a square shape spot size so the coverage for treatment is uniform. Unlike other lasers, this means that the treatment will eliminate overlap and hotspots that can potentially harm the skin. Along with being able to adjust the power of the laser, the device coverage can also be adjusted up to 27mm by 27mm, one of the widest scopes for any laser on the market.
What Can This Laser Treatment Do?
In general, laser treatment systems can be diverse; most lasers can treat a few superficial skin concerns at the same time, such as skin laxity and dark spots. But the Lumenis laser sets itself apart from similar treatments because of the range of conditions and concerns it can treat. The top three concerns that can be addressed with this laser system include:
The primary treatment with this laser is hair removal. Hair removal treatments are a way to permanently stunt the growth of hair on the body, thin out the density of hair, and even correct ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal treatments work by delivering heat to the hair follicle via the hair shaft, which will shock and damage the hair follicle to prevent future hair growth. Many people use laser hair removal as a way to minimize shaving irritation or other skin concerns from tweezing or waxing.
Hair removal with a laser can usually be done on every area of the body, including the upper lip, chest, back, underarms, stomach, and legs. Some laser systems can even be used around the bikini area.
Pigment and Vascular Lesions
This laser system can also treat pigment and vascular lesions. Pigmentation concerns are usually associated with sun damage, dark spots, melasma, blemishes, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Pigment concerns can also address skin redness or uneven skin tone, including dullness. Vascular lesions, on the other hand, refer to photodamage on the face and body that has caused broken capillaries and spider veins. Again, treatment with lasers can be used on virtually all areas where these lesions develop.
Wrinkle reduction generally refers to smoothing the appearance of wrinkles on the face, particularly around the nose and mouth. Wrinkles are caused by low amounts of collagen and elastin in the skin, which allows the skin to become loose and creased. Laser treatments generate heat that will stimulate the natural healing properties of the body, which will also encourage natural collagen production. Like many other laser treatments, patients will find that they will have smoother skin in any treatment area, not just the face.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The number of treatments you will need will depend on a few factors, such as the concern you are treating and the size of the treatment area. One of the best things about the Lumenis laser is the fact that the treatments themselves are faster than other treatments – and because the combination of lasers produces more effective results, you will likely need fewer overall treatments to achieve your goals.
How Soon Will You See Results?
It generally takes several weeks to see any significant results from laser treatments. Most people will not be able to see their desired results until after one or two treatments, so usually, results will be visible after a minimum of four to six weeks. We will be able to tell you how many treatments are necessary for your aesthetic goals during your consultation.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes, treatment with the Lumenis SplendorX is very safe. Not only does the technology in this laser allow for the energy levels to be comfortably adjusted for your skin sensitivity and skin tone, but the laser also has neat features that prioritize the comfort of your skin during the treatment. The dual cooling system combines Cryo-touch and Cryo-air technology in a tip that is designed to emit cold hair while the laser is in use. This means that while the laser is working, the dual cooling system is also removing heat from the skin, which greatly decreases skin sensitivity and increases overall comfort.
Additionally, this treatment is considered safe for all skin tones and types. While some laser treatments can’t be used on medium and darker complexions due to the risk of pigmentation, the Lumenis laser can be used on all skin tones with virtually zero risk. This makes this laser system one of the safest and most diverse treatments available.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Because this laser system is so uniquely versatile and can be used on all skin tones, most people are good candidates for treatment. If you want to reduce hair growth, correct pigmentation concerns, and improve the tone and quality of your skin, then you will need to attend a consultation to determine your eligibility. Women who are pregnant should not use this treatment.
