Bringing a unique laser hair removal technology to Brooklyn, NY

Dr. Tatiana Khrom is a Board-certified and fellowship-trained dermatologist at the forefront of the latest advances in aesthetic medicine. She and her team are excited to bring the unique benefits of SPLENDOR X laser hair removal treatment to Brooklyn, NY. This breakthrough technology is fast, gentle, effective, and available now at Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics!

What is laser hair removal?

If you aren’t familiar with the procedure, you might wonder why there is so much hype about laser hair removal. After all, you already have lots of options for unwanted hair removal. You can pluck it, wax it, shave it, melt it off with smelly creams... The problem is that it always comes back. That is precisely the problem that laser hair removal solves.

This treatment does not actually remove the hair you already have; it prevents future growth. Laser energy targets active hair follicles, “zapping” them and rendering them incapable of future growth. Because follicles have varying growth cycles, only a percentage of them are active at any time. Therefore, several laser sessions are needed to reach optimal results.

Introducing a new era in professional hair removal

Lumenis Ltd. is the largest manufacturer of energy-based medical devices for ophthalmic, aesthetic, or surgical applications in the world and it has earned a reputation for leading the way in innovation. Once again, Lumenis raised the bar in aesthetic medicine with the introduction of the first solid-state laser device to incorporate next-generation BLEND X technology. This new system, appropriately named SPLENDOR X, debuted in October 2018. Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics is proud to bring this amazing new technology to Brooklyn.


What sets SPLENDOR X apart?

  • • Treatment designed for your skin – This innovative system facilitates custom blended laser energy to meet your needs, thanks to BLEND X technology.
  • Reshaping laser delivery – Before SPLENDOR X, all hair removal laser applicators worked with a round spot size, which made uniform coverage impossible. This device is unique in its square treatment area.
  • Enhanced comfort – The square spot shape eliminates the need for overlapping, and the hotspots it can cause
  • More convenient than ever – Lumenis reimagined not only the shape of laser applicators but also the size and speed, with a larger treatment head and rapid repetitions, reducing the procedure time

What is BLEND X technology?

When a label says, "one size fits all," it usually means the item fits no one well, because each person is unique. For the same reason, packaged skincare solutions often disappoint. Like clothing, skin treatments should be tailored to your unique body and to your aesthetic preferences.

BLEND X by Lumenis takes tailored treatment to a new level, enabling precision customization of laser energy. It is a uniquely powerful and customizable laser system, offering unsurpassed coverage, speed, and power. BLEND X features a combination of two premier solid-state lasers, the Nd:Yag and Alexandrite. These can be fired together, but adjusted individually. That means your clinician can choose the ideal power and proportions of laser treatment, with a virtually endless range of possibilities.

Who is a candidate for treatment?

The answer to that question keeps changing, and it gets better every time. Light energy of certain wavelengths is readily absorbed by pigment, which allows lasers to target hair follicles.

  • The first hair removal lasers on the market could not distinguish between skin and hair pigment. They worked reasonably well for people with very light skin and very dark hair, but could be ineffective or even dangerous for others.
  • As technology evolved, newer “colorblind” lasers were able to target pigment more selectively, making treatment available to patients with darker skin tones.
  • SPLENDOR X changed the rules of laser hair removal yet again. Gentler and more precise than previous systems, not only suitable for all skin tones, but it can also be adjusted to optimal levels specifically for your skin.

What should you do before laser treatment?

The most important step in preparation is your consultation. During this initial appointment, we will discuss risks, benefits, and ensure that laser hair removal is right for you. We will also recommend a few steps you can take to make the procedure more comfortable and improve results. These include:

  • Avoid sun exposure – There are plenty of reasons for protecting your skin from UV rays, with the most important being skin cancer. Despite this, many people forget (or skip) sunscreen. If you are among them, you’ll need to be extra diligent in the weeks leading up to your appointment.
  • Don’t disturb follicles – Waxing, tweezing, and similar hair removal techniques remove the entire hair, including the root. Because lasers target pigment within the follicle, it must be intact and undisturbed for optimal effectiveness. Patients are advised to avoid these types of do it yourself treatments at least a month prior to each laser session.
  • Avoid certain medications and supplements – Over-the-counter NSAID pain medications, some dietary supplements, prescription blood thinners, and other substances can increase the risk of inflammation. During your consultation, it is important to tell your clinician about any medicines or supplements you take. We will discuss any that may be problematic, and recommend avoiding optional ones for several days or weeks. If you are taking any potentially problematic medications that were prescribed or recommended by a physician, we will recommend talking to him or her about potential alternatives.
  • Shave – Unlike waxing, this does not disturb the hair follicles. Therefore, you can shave as often as needed before a laser session. Actually, we recommend shaving the treatment area the day before your appointment. The goal is for laser energy to reach pigment in the follicle. If hairs are long, some of it will be absorbed by the hair shaft, which can overheat the skin surface.

What does the laser hair removal procedure involve?

The actual procedure is surprisingly fast and gentle, thanks to advanced SPLENDOR X technology. The total appointment time depends on the size of the area being treated. However, with rapid fire technology and increased spot size, even a large area, such as the back, can be treated quickly.

  • Before beginning, we will prepare the skin by cleansing and trimming hairs if necessary.
  • Laser energy is delivered to the hair follicles, using a BLEND X enabled, handheld device
  • Targeted follicles absorb energy and increase in temperature, while air cooling keeps the skin surface safe and comfortable
  • The applicator is moved at a precise rate of speed, ensuring uniform energy delivery across the entire treatment area

How many appointments will you need?

In most cases, the first visit for a new patient will be a consultation. We will learn about your needs and goals, perform an evaluation, and discuss various options.

Follicles are not always growing hairs. They cycle through active and resting phases. Those in the resting phase will not respond to laser energy. Therefore, each session can only treat a percentage of hairs in the target region. For best results, you will need a series of up to six appointments.

What are the side effects of SPLENDOR X laser hair removal?

Because this advanced technology virtually eliminates “hotspots,” there is minimal effect on the epidermis. Therefore, normal laser hair removal side effects such as redness and swelling typically dissipate in just a few hours


How long will results last? Many patients are seeking permanent hair removal with laser therapy. Technically, that is not possible. As described above, each laser session treats a percentage of hair follicles. According to the rules of basic mathematics, subtracting a percentage of the whole will result in a smaller number – but it will never quite reach zero. Therefore, laser hair treatment is classified as permanent reduction. A complete series of laser treatments may be sufficient to meet your needs for the rest of your life. Some patients never have a follow-up treatment, and never touch a razor again. Some people will eventually notice a little regrowth, typically just a few, very fine hairs. A single laser maintenance treatment, about once a year, is typically sufficient to control or prevent this problem.
