Sylfirm X is a microneedling system where radiofrequency micro-needles are inserted into your skin and RF energy is emitted from the device the form of heat which is delivered into the dermis. The needles inflict microdamage into the skin which stimulates collagen production, improving skin elasticity and firmness.
Sylfirm X is able to target anomalous vessels that cause rosacea, melasma and other skin discolorations due to the innovative Pulsed Wave technology along with traditional continuous wave technology. Sylfim X is not a laser; however, it does use radiofrequency technology. Sylfirm X safely heals the damaged epidermal regions following needle insertion by selective coagulation of vessels while destruction of only the anomalous blood vessels. Due to non-insulated needle technology, Sylfirm X is able to deliver effective energy into the dermal layers and causes coagulation leading to minimal downtime and reportedly less painful experience as compared with other RF Microneedling devices. Sylfirm X dual technology of continuous and pulse wave capabilities enables treatment of various skin issues such as:
-Improves skin texture
-Reduces pore size
-Minimizes acne scars
-Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation
-Lifts and tightens neck
Treatment area is first cleansed then numbing cream is applied to the area. After numbing is complete the area is again cleansed and sanitized, and the device is applied to the skin's surface while radiofrequency micro-needles are inserted into the skin inflicting microdamage in a controlled manner. RF energy is emitted from the device in the form of heat which is delivered to precise dermal layer of skin. This stimulates the body's healing response by activating synthesis of new collagen and elastin within the skin. Depending on the treatment it can be used to target the melanin in the skin causing apoptosis of the melanocytes seen with melasma and dark spots and also strengthens the basement membrane of the dermal layer, leading to minimized recurrence of melasma. It can also be used to strengthen collagen bonds leading to skin tightening and lifting. Treatment time typically lasts 30-45 minutes.
