Let’s face the facts, it’s time to pamper that skin. On top of the usual advice, like using sunblock daily (please tell us you are already doing this), there’s more we can do to ensure our body’s largest organ is well taken care of, especially for us living in Singapore’s eternal sauna-like conditions.
Even if they involve needles. Microneedles to be exact, are used in their brand new SylfirmX treatment, which doesn’t hurt as much as you might think. It’s an extremely precise treatment thanks to the latest in microneedling technology, and the result is an improved overall look and tone of your skin.
Numbing cream is applied before the treatment, and all you’ll feel are tiny prickling sensations which are generally tolerable. Gold microneedles reach up to 4mm deep into the skin without causing damage to skin tissue, and it’s a fully customizable treatment depending on your skin’s needs.
But who is the treatment for? Anyone with skin really, as SylfirmX addresses a myriad of concerns including acne scars, redness like rosacea and hyperpigmentation.
At the deepest layer, this painless procedure can treat deep acne scars — great for those of us who have scars left over from severe acne in our younger years.
In the middle layers of the skin, it can treat melasma and hyperpigmentation — a constant bane since we live in the tropics, and for those dealing with the effects of postpartum recovery too.
In the superficial layers, the treatment regenerates and resurfaces skin.
Look forward to baby-smooth skin and a dewy appearance, all for just 30-60 minutes of your time. The best part? There’s no downtime — feel free to put on some makeup right after the procedure and strut out of the clinic with your face feeling fresh and the glow it deserves!
The SylfirmX treatment works on the body just as well as the face. SYLFIRM X delivers RF energy to the targeted tissue using bi-polar non-insulated ultrafine 300 micron needles. Precise thermal coagulation is created by using evenly-levelled electrodes to penetrate the accurate target depth, in order to induce optimal results with extra effectiveness.
Energy is released into the device at 2MHz, through the 300 micron needle tips which are able to target precise depth, compared to other conventional micro-needling RF.
According to the treatment indication, Sylfirm X can penetrate the skin between 0.3mm to 4mm. With each penetration, the 300 micron needles remain in the skin for the optimal time required to bring about an effect before any thermal damage can occur.
The emitted 2MHz strengthens and improves skin health by repairing damaged skin cells, blood vessels, and remodels skin collagen through the increase in the production of collagen and elastin. The combination of PW waves and NA effect ensures the selective coagulation using bi-polar non-insulated needles for the treatment of damaged skin cells while maintaining overall skin health.
Sylfirm X is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment designed to treat pigmentation. As an advanced RF treatment that combines ultra-short pulse (RP) technology with microneedling, Sylfirm X is able to target discolouration from abnormal blood vessels underneath the skin.
Sylfirm X is a highly versatile treatment option recommended for common skin problems such as rosacea, melasma, acne, fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients can enjoy the following benefits by undergoing a Sylfirm X treatment:
During Sylfirm X treatment, RF energy is used to heat up the dermal layers to about 40 to 60 degrees Celsius. At the same time, a micro-needling device creates small punctures in the skin to speed up cell renewal which replaces lost collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars.
Sylfirm X is able to slow down these signs of aging to create a younger-looking appearance. This treatment also improves overall skin tone.
Sylfirm X is able to treat the following conditions including:
Patients can expect to see improvements in skin texture and pigmentation almost immediately. Results will continue to improve for up to 3 months after each session. You can expect dewier and bouncier-looking skin once post-treatment swelling subsides. Results of Sylfirm X can last for up to 1 to 2 years.
The number of treatments for Sylfirm X will depend on the patient’s needs. It is recommended that patients go for at least 1 to 4 sessions to achieve the best results. Each session should be spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart depending on the treatment plan you and your doctor have formulated. Patients can also undergo maintenance treatments every 2 to 3 months after treatment ends.
Sylfirm X is not considered to be painful. It is a safe treatment option for all skin types and each session lasts up to 60 minutes. Topical anesthesia will be applied to the face to reduce any potential discomfort as the treatment areas will be numbed. Some patients may experience pinpoint bleeding during the procedure, but this can be avoided so long as you consult a skilled doctor.
Sylfirm X is generally considered to be a safe procedure. It is a minimally-
invasive and FDA-approved method designed for treating common skin problems using RF microneedling technology.
Sylfirm X typically requires a downtime of about 1 to 2 days. However, you will be able to resume normal activities after the treatment so long as you keep away from the sun. It is advised that you avoid wearing makeup for 1 to 2 days after treatment so as to not irritate the skin. Be sure to keep the treatment area moisturized and apply ample sunscreen to protect your skin while it heals.
