What Is Sylfirm X?
It is the very first FDA-approved radio-frequency micro-needling treatment that uses dual wave for the treatment which is a combination of continuous-wave and pulsed 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.
Sylfirm X is unique because of its function to switch between pulsed and continuous modes, providing the doctor more control over the treatment, which is important for difficult-to-treat skin issues.
Is Sylfirm X A Laser?
No. Sylfirm X is a microneedling treatment that optimizes the use of microneedles and it does not damage the skin while treating the issue. It safely heals the damaged epidermal areas with selective coagulation of vessels while removing the anomalous blood vessels without damaging the skin.
How Does Sylfirm X Work?
Sylfirm X uses Regional Radio Repeated Pulse (RP) microneedling to target and treat the abnormal vessels. It helps with skin elasticity, skin tone, pigmentation and maximize effects of collagen production. An electromagnetic field of energy is formed with the help of several micro electrodes that can penetrate the dermal layer without injuring the tissue.
Among various microneedling RF systems, the new Sylfirm X has the broadest depth of range of 0.3 – 4.0mm. With a dept of 0.3mm, it can target the papillary dermis, or uppder dermal layer, which is just below the basement membrane and contains a lot of senescent fibroblast and type III collagen.
During the treatment, a robotic system ensures that the evenly-layered electrodes are applied precisely to reach the appropriate depth. Microneedling treatents are faster, more effective and more comfortable for patients because they cover all skin layers. Besides that, doctors can choose from eight modes depending on the goals of the treatment.
RF energy is delivered through micro needles to the skin with heat curated at 40-60°C. Coagulation, protein denaturation, inflammation and contractions occur as a result. Hence, it stimulates wound healing and boosting new collagen formation.
When It Comes To Enlarged Pores, How Does Sylfirm X Help?
Since Sylfirm X has adjustable depth of microneedles, it allows for better targeting of different layers on the skin.
Deep Depths: Skin volumization, resulting in a delicate and glowing appearance. Collagen is stimulated in the middle depths hence tightens the skin and minimizes pores.
Shallow Depths: Skin resurfacing to smooth texture and stimulate skin renewal for a healthy glow.
The regulated injury induced by microneedles, for starters, triggers a healing response. It helps increases collagen formation, tightening the treatment area and minimizing pores. Simultaneously, the radiofrequency energy delivered by the microneedles stimulate collagen formation and remodels the skin’s laxity around the big pores.
How Is Sylfirm X Performed?
To ensure the patient feels comfortable at all times, numbing cream will be applied prior to treatment. Microneedles provide RF energy to the targeted locations more deeply and accurately. The treatment combines RF and microneedle and due to both the benefits, it can effectively cure a variety of reasons while also delivering skin rejuvenation for a younger and softer appearance.

Are There Any Side Effects From Sylfirm X?
After the treatment, you can get back to your regular daily routine. Before shifting to a smoother, younger skin texture, some side effects such as redness and moderate edema may occur at higher settings. For typical cases, the downtime ranges from zero to three days.
Longer downtime can be observed for those treating acne scarring as it needs to be treated at deeper depths of the skin.
Can Sylfirm X Be Mixed With Other Treatments?
Yes but not all treatments can be done together on the same day.
