How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Lasers are narrow beams of light formed by one or multiple wavelengths. During laser treatments for hair reduction, the laser light targets pigment cells, called melanin, that reside in the hair follicle. Once the melanin is targeted, it absorbs the light energy, converts it into heat, and ultimately burns all the way down the hair root and follicle, preventing future growth.
Since hair goes through a resting and growth cycle, multiple treatments are needed to permanently remove hair. When hair is in its resting part of the cycle, it may not be able to absorb enough laser light to destroy the follicle. Typically, between 4 and 6 sessions are needed to permanently reduce hair quantity and thickness.
Laser hair removal is extremely safe as long as it is performed by a trained and certified laser technician. At A New Dawn Wellness Center, we are committed to our clients’ safety and well-being, which is why our laser hair removal treatments are performed with state-of-the-art technology in a safe, well-maintained environment.
Why Choose SplendorX Hair Removal?
In the past, laser hair reduction was extremely painful, slow, and ineffective. Not anymore. SplendorX by Lumenis is the first laser to utilize both Alexandrite wavelengths (for lighter skin tones - 1,2, and 3) and Nd:YAG wavelengths (for darker skin tones - 4,5, and 6) for a faster, more efficient, and pain-free treatment. While other lasers use high settings of a single wavelength, which makes hair reduction so slow and painful, the SplendorX blends lower settings of both to harness their unique properties and tailor the treatment to your skin and hair type.
In addition, the machine’s unique square-shaped laser spot provides a faster and more uniform coverage of the treatment area. No overlap, no burns, and no retouching of missed areas. Combined with a built-in plume evacuator and dual cooling system, the SplendorX offers comfort, quality, and safety in every step.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
Is SplendorX laser hair removal safe?
Yes! The SplendorX is designed to guarantee a safe and effective treatment for all skin tones and all areas of the body. However, if you have tattoos, an active infection or inflammation, viral, fungal or bacterial disease, an active cold sore, or open wound in the area you want to treat, or if you are pregnant, laser hair removal is not suitable for you.
Are results permanent?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment to permanently reduce hair quantity and thickness. Hair removal is permanent when the hair follicle is destroyed, which is why multiple treatments are needed. Contact us to develop a treatment plan tailored to your skin type and needs.
Why do I need multiple treatments?

Are there body parts that can't be treated?
The SplendorX is suitable for all areas of the body. However, if you have tattoos, an active infection or inflammation, viral, fungal, or bacterial disease, an active cold sore, or open wound in the area you want to treat, or if you are pregnant, laser hair removal is not suitable for you.
How should I prepare for my laser hair removal treatment?
There are a few things to consider prior to your first treatment:
- Avoid tanning and limit your sun exposure for 2 weeks
- Hold off on removing hair from the root (waxing, tweezers)
- Shave the night before your treatment for better results
How do I care for my skin after the treatment and is there any downtime?
Some patients experience mild redness and swelling around their hair follicles, which can last up to 24 hours. However, there is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities right after.
After your laser hair removal treatment, it is important to follow the instructions outlined by our laser technicians. Avoid sun exposure and heat for 2-3 days and do not wax, tweeze, or bleach the treated area until all sessions are completed.
