Installing LVP on unlevel floor

I’m planning on installing Rigid Core LVP in my basement in the coming weeks. The flooring was previously carpeting and the concrete subfloor has a number of areas that are between 1/8 to 1/4 inch out of level. I was wondering if it’s be possible to fix these spots without pouring self leveling cement across the whole basement? Can I pour SLC in only certain spots? I’ve included photos of some the two types of issues that in dealing with. The first is a valley in the floor (about 1/4 inch out of level) and the second is a raised portion of the floor. I have about 4-5 instances of each of these issues across my 1000sqft basement. I would appreciate any guidance you all might have on rectifying these issues before I install. Thanks!
