Sylfirm X is the newest radio frequency, microneedling device available. It differs from other machines in that it can deliver continuous waves and short bursts of radiofrequency, whilst needling at the same time. This unique combination allows us to treat the skin for multiple concerns such as pigmentation, eyelid hooding, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and redness/vascularity with minimal downtime and pain.
Using an electronically controlled hand piece, the tip contains 25 ultrafine gold-plated needles, which pierce the skin and deliver radio frequency energy (heat) below the skin’s surface without damaging the outer layer of the skin.
This technique ensures the precise application of energy with each pass to allow the RF microneedling to penetrate to the correct depth and therefore provide optimal results. By covering all dermal layers, this results in skin remodelling and tightening. This also means we can treat pigmented and vascular lesions such as melasma and redness. Additionally, practitioners can choose from eight different treatment modes depending on the patient’s goals and concerns.
Slyfirm X is suitable for all skin types and all skin concerns including- ageing, acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, melasma, redness, dehydration and open pores.
This all depends on your skin concern, however on average we recommend 3-6 treatments.
Risks are extremely low with this treatment as everything used is disposable. We will also provide you with the appropriate aftercare to follow to minimise side effects.
You can expect to see some redness and swelling immediately after treatment. This should subside after 24 hours or between 3- 5 days, depending on the depth of the treatment and the patient’s skin concern.
