What is SYLFIRM X?
Sylfirm X is the first FDA approved 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.
Sylfirm X has 8 different modes which enables it to be customised to different treatment sites and conditions. Sylfirm X also has the widest depth range of 0.3 – 4.0mm compared to other micro-needling RF systems in the market.
Unlike its predecessor SYLFIRM, the new SYLFIRM X has the widest 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.
Another unique feature of SYLFIRM X over older generation and other similar equipment is the option to choose between pulsed mode (which is not commonly available) and continuous mode, giving your doctor better control over the treatment, which is especially useful for difficult to treat conditions
WHAT DOES SYLFIRM X TREAT?
Using the pulsed wave mode, Sylfirm X 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. Sylfirm X 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
Sylfirm X 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.
