The Lumenis Splendor X vs.Other Hair Removal Methods: Which is Right for You

Posted on in MedSpa by Zac

Hair removal is a common concern for many people, which is why humans have discovered a variety of methods to achieve smooth, hair-free skin. From waxing, to shaving, or electrolysis, everyone has their preferred hair removal method. However, while each method has the same end goal, the process is not the same, and they each have their own downsides to consider. Below we will take a closer look at one of the newest options on the market—the Lumenis Splendor X laser—comparing it to other popular hair removal methods to learn what will be the best options for your clients.

Of course, just as each method for removing hair is distinct, so is the hair itself. Therefore, we couldn’t compare hair removal methods without also discussing the factors you should consider when deciding which method to recommend to your clients. These include skin type, location of the hair, and desired results. With this information, you’ll be able to provide a more informed and practical recommendation for your clients and help them achieve the results they’re looking for.

The Traditional Options

With the desire for smooth, hair-free skin, hair removal has been a practice that has existed for millenia. From ancient Egypt to the present day, people have sought various methods to get rid of unwanted hair. Today, there is a range of hair removal options available, each with its own level of success. The most traditional methods include waxing, shaving, and electrolysis. When recommending hair removal options to your patients, it’s essential to consider all options and weigh the pros and cons before making a recommendation. 


Waxing has been a hair removal method for centuries, dating back to the Egyptians who used sugar-based wax for hair removal in 3,000 BCE. This method works by adhering the wax to the hair, then removing it along with the hair from the root. The hair-free skin is left silky smooth for several weeks, making it a popular, if painful, choice for individuals seeking temporary hair removal.

Electrolysis is a hair removal method that aims to provide a permanent solution. It has been around for over a century and is considered the only FDA approved method for permanent hair removal. The process involves using a small electric current to destroy the hair follicle, which results in a long-lasting effect. During treatment, a tiny probe is inserted into the hair follicle, and a low-level electrical current is then delivered to the root of the hair. This current causes damage to the follicle, which in turn stops hair growth.

  • Can be used to treat all hair colors, including blonde, red and gray

Lumenis Splendor X: The Cutting-Edge Hair Removal Solution

The Lumenis Splendor X is a cutting-edge hair removal solution that utilizes the latest advancements in technology to provide safe and effective results. The system uses BLEND X technology, which combines Nd:YAG (1064 nm) and Alexandrite (755 nm) wavelengths to create a binary laser emission. This unique combination allows practitioners to customize hair removal and skin treatments to meet each patient’s specific needs, regardless of skin and hair type.

With 250W output power and a rapid coverage rate, the Splendor X is designed to maximize efficacy and comfort for laser hair removal, pigmented and vascular lesions treatment, and wrinkle reduction. Additionally, the system features Cryo-Touch and Cryo-Air technology, which actively removes heat from the tissue during treatment, resulting in a more comfortable experience for the patient.

Cost Efficiency

While it may seem more expensive than other hair removal treatments,  the Lumenis Splendor X proves to be cost-effective for patients in the long run. This is because the results of Lumenis Splendor X are long-lasting, meaning fewer touch-up sessions are required, reducing the overall cost of hair removal in the long term.


The Lumenis Splendor X hair removal treatment usually takes place every 4-6 weeks and can produce the desired result after 6-8 sessions. Some of your patients may experience redness and discomfort during the procedure, but these side effects are temporary and typically resolve within a few hours.

Potential Adverse Reactions

Like all hair removal treatments, Lumenis Splendor X may cause minor side effects such as redness, swelling, and temporary discomfort. These reactions are usually mild and typically fade within a few hours. It is important to note that all medical procedures carry a certain level of risk, and it is important to discuss these risks with your patients when recommending treatment.
