What is SYLFIRMX RADIOFREQUENCY MICRO-NEEDLING TREATMENT? 

SylfirmX is a Radio-frequency (RF) micro-needling treatment that uses dual wave (a combination of continuous-wave and pulsed wave) for the treatment of skin rejuvenation, scars, pigmented and vascular lesions like melasma, diffuse redness and rosacea. 

At EHA, we provide this treatment through Sylfirm X Applicator.

Sylfirm X has 8 different modes which enables it to be customised to different treatment sites and conditions. Sylfirm X also has a wide depth range of 0.3 – 4.0mm.

Unlike its predecessor SYLFIRM, the SYLFIRM X has a wider depth range of 0.3-4.0mm among other micro-needling RF systems. A depth of 0.3mm enables it to target the papillary dermis or the upper dermal layer that is located just below the basement membrane, where senescent fibroblasts and type III collagen are largely distributed and is an important place to interact with the epidermis as this is the ideal depth to target when trying to eradicate stubborn pigmentation.

 

 

WHAT DOES SYLFIRMX TREAT?

Using the pulsed wave mode, this treatment can treat pigmentation such as melasma and rosacea. Melasma is caused by hyperactive melanocytes, the damaged base layer of the epidermis, abnormal blood vessels and deteriorating collagen. Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment targets these root causes of melasma by regulating melanin production, strengthening the base layer of the epidermis, removing abnormal blood vessels and increasing collagen production.

Facial Rejuvenation: Skin tightening and open-pore treatment 

Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment can tighten and reduce the appearance of visible pores. RF which is delivered at 55-60°C into the dermal layer, remodels and tightens lax skin. Firmer and tighter skin can be seen immediately after treatment.

Other conditions treated using Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment

Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment can also be used on parts of the body, like the neck, double chin, décolletage and even the scalp to promote hair regrowth.

  • Pigmentation – melasma and rosacea
  • Skin rejuvenation – enlarged pores, wrinkles, fine lines, rhytides and skin laxity
  • Body rejuvenation – turkey neck, double chin, décolletage
  • Scars – acne scars, atrophic scars, hypertrophic scars, stretch marks

How does SYLFIRMX Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment work? 

Radio-frequency (RF) micro-needling – a minimally invasive treatment that delivers RF via micro-needles.

Micro-needling produces controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This action stimulates natural wound healing and collagen production in the treated area. The tiny needles also work to break down scar tissue.

RF energy is delivered to the skin through micro-needles. RF generates heat at 40-60°C, causing coagulation, protein denaturation, leading to inflammation and contraction, stimulating the wound healing response and promoting new collagen production. 

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR SYLFIRMX Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment ? 

This treatment is suitable for a wide range of age groups and all gender as it has both long and short pulses to customize to different conditions. It is also for all skin types as RF is not limited by Fitzpatrick skin types and therefore all skin types can be treated with this treatment effectively and safely.

What can i expect from SYLFIRMX Radiofrequency Micro-needling treatment ?

While you will see visible improvements after a single treatment, depending on your skin condition, it is recommended to have up to four treatments or more for optimal results.

Individual results may vary according to existing condition.

 

POST-TREATMENT CARE

It is normal to experience some slight redness and swelling post-treatment, but this should subside within a few hours. Each treatment will take 30 minutes and will be performed with numbing cream to make the process more comfortable. 

For the treatment of melasma, the pigmented area will initially darken and then fade away within a period of 1-2 weeks.

For the treatment of acne, scars and skin tightening on both the face and body, you can expect some redness and swelling that can last between 1-5 days. 

**It is important to find a certified and trained professional to conduct this procedure.
