Sylfirm X Mechanism
Sylfirm X makes use of radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling. This is a minimally invasive procedure which delivers radiofrequency through microneedles. Controlled micro-injuries are made on the skin by microneedling that stimulates collagen production and wound healing. The needle helps in breaking down scar tissue as well.
Microneedles are used for delivering RF energy to the skin. It generates heat at 104-140°, which causes protein denaturation and coagulation leading to contraction and inflammation. This further begins the wound healing response that promotes collagen production.
Tightening Skin and Treating Pores with Sylfirm X
Enlarged pores can be tightened by Sylfirm X med spa treatment. They can be used for diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. RF energy is delivered at 131-140° within the dermal layer by using the continuous wave motion. Patients can almost immediately notice skin contractions.
The device can treat pigmentation, such as rosacea and melasma by using pulsed wave mode. Hyperactive melanocytes, abnormal blood vessels, damaged epidermis base layer, and reduced collagen can cause melasma. Sylfirm X helps in strengthening the base epidermis layer, removing abnormal blood vessels, and regulating melanin production to treat the root cause of melasma.
The RF microneedling med spa procedure can be used for treating acne, rosacea, and acne scars. It can be used for rejuvenating the skin in the neck, decolletage, and double chin.
