Sylfirm X, the world’s first and only dual wave RF Microneedling System (300m), is now available at Become Aesthetics Clinic.  The very first FDA approved radio-frequency micro-needling treatment that uses dual wave which is a combination of continuous wave and pulse wave. It is one of the most popular treatments in the medical aesthetic industry because of its many benefits especially in the reduction of enlarged pores and soft glowing skin tone after the treatment.

The First of Its Kind Microneedling Technology  

Sylfirm X has a distinctive feature because it can function to switch between pulsed and continuous modes which gives the doctor more control over the treatment. It is highly important especially when it comes to treating difficult skin issues. 

Because of the brief repetitive pulses of microneedling, the latest generation Sylfirm X device reacts particularly to the damaged tissue and blood vessels that are causing vascular lesions and pigmentation. As a result, the targeted high-precision treatment causes no injury to the neighbouring healthy tissue.

Is Sylfirm X a Laser?

It is not a laser but a microneedling treatment that maximises the effectiveness of micro needles while minimizing skin damage. It uses selective coagulation of vessels to safely treat injured epidermal areas while eliminating abnormal blood vessels without injuring the skin.

How does Sylfirm X work?

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 created.

Among various microneedling RF systems, the new SYLFIRM X has the broadest depth of range of 0.3 – 4.0mm. With a depth of 0.3mm, it can target the papillary dermis, or upper dermal layer, which is just below the basement membrane and contains a lot of senescent fibroblast and type III collagen.

The robotic mechanism guarantees that the even layered electrodes are applied exactly to the optimum depth during the treatment. Since microneedling treats all layers of the skin, it is faster, more effective, and more comfortable for patients. Aside from that, doctors can choose from 8 different modes based on the treatment goals.

Who is suitable for Sylfirm X?

Those with such skin issues can be treated with Sylfirm X:- 

  • Pigmentation: Melasma & Rosacea 
  • Skin Rejuvenation: Enlarged Pores, Wrinkles, Rhytids, Fine Lines & Skin Laxity
  • Body Rejuvenation: Double Chin, Turkey Neck & Decolletage
  • Scars: Acne Scars & Stretch Marks

Is Sylfirm X Painful?

To guarantee a comfortable treatment, numbing cream will be applied first. There is minimal downtime and little to no pain associated with this treatment. Many find Sylfirm X treatment to be painless and comfortable. Some people may feel a tingling feeling when the probe is lightly pressed against their skin. Depending on the depth and area treated, this sensation can change.

You will notice minor changes shortly after your treatment. It will mostly be from immediate mild swelling and tightening. After 2 to 3 months, the entire results of treatment occur. This is due to the fact that the collagen fibers mature with time. The results are not permanent but they can last for many years. The benefits of HIFU will be reversed as your skin ages and gravity pulls your skin downwards. Even after a single treatment, however, the collagen produced by your own body lasts for years. Annual treatments might help you maintain and improve your results.

How many sessions do I need?

Depending on the individual’s skin condition and treatment regions, it normally takes 3 to 4 sessions to complete. Your skin tone and texture will quickly improve with just one treatment as well. As the collagen regeneration process develops, there is substantial improvement three months after each therapy session.

Can Sylfirm X be mixed with other treatments?

Yes, although not all treatments are available on the same day.

  • Hydration: Profhilo or Skinboosters
  • Wrinkle Reduction: BTX or Skinboosters
  • Tightening/Lifting: HIFU, Thermage or Ultherapy
  • Pigmentation: Laser

Are there any side effects to Sylfirm X?

You can resume your  normal daily routine after undergoing Sylfirm X treatment. At higher settings, some adverse effects such as redness and mild edema may occur before moving to a smoother, younger skin texture. The downtime for the treatment is usually between zero to three days.
