These 4-step procedure treats skin both internally and externally from surface and deep skin layers to fat layers and retaining ligaments on the face.

This step is effective in tightening of the cheeks, reduction of nasolabial fold and perioral wrinkles, at the same time, lifting the treatment area like a filler.
STEP 2: FRAC3®
Sylfirm X uses Regional Radio Repeated Pulse (RP) microneedling to target and treat the abnormal vessels. It improves skin suppleness, tone, and pigmentation while also increasing collagen formation. With the use of many micro electrodes that can penetrate the dermal layer without harming the tissue, an electromagnetic field of energy is crThe second step targets the cheek and jaw area using Nd:YAG where a three-dimensional effect is self-induced fractional rejuvenation. The micro columns of skin are subjected to ‘thermal injury’ without touching the surrounding areas. It helps trigger the skin’s natural mechanism to repair by stimulating collagen production.
STEP 3: PIANO®
A brushing technique is utilized to transmit energy deep into the thick dermal tissue while avoiding thermal injury to the surface layer of the skin. This mass heating process activates neocollagenesis, which tightens the skin and makes it firmer and more lifted.
STEP 4: SupErficial™
