Sylfirm X treatment works by targeting anomalous vessels that cause rosacea, melasma, and other skin discolorations. Microelectrodes create an electromagnetic field of energy to penetrate the dermal layer without damaging the tissue. Thanks to the inbuilt robotic system, the treatment is highly precise, allowing the electrodes to reach the desired depth.

Radiofrequency micro-needles inflicts microdamage in a controlled manner, provoking natural wound healing. This jolts the biological mechanisms to synthesis new elastin and collagen. These processes are typically slowed down due to environmental damage and aging, decelerating cell turnover, and replacement rate. Sylfirm X enhances these processes, helping your skin appear and feel younger.

After insertion of the microneedles in your skin, RF energy is emitted from the device in the form of heat, which is delivered right into the dermis. You may feel a sensation of warm itchiness, minimal discomfort due to the numbing effect. A calming balm or mask may be applied after the completion of the treatment.
