The appearance of your skin can change due to a number of factors. Spending too much time in the sun can lead to rough texture, spots, and more. Aging alone robs your skin of nourishing proteins and acids, resulting in what can feel like an ever-increasing number of lines and wrinkles. If you're ready to address these and other cosmetic issues and want to do so without surgery, we have options! We're proud to offer several choices in skin rejuvenation, including Sylfirm X, an innovative form of RF microneedling.
For more information about Sylfirm X or other rejuvenating treatments contact our Buffalo, NY office at 716-633-6100.
What is Sylfirm X?
This skin rejuvenating system combines microneedling with powerful radiofrequency energy to deliver effective preventive and corrective treatment. Sylfirm X works by emitting radiofrequency waves through tiny needles that penetrate the uppermost layers of the skin. The combined action of microneedling with radiofrequency energy stimulates a profound wound-healing response that involves strong collagen proliferation in the treated area. When the upper layers of the skin absorb radiofrequency waves, tissue is heated in a controlled manner to the point at which protein denaturation, coagulation, and contraction occur. The Sylfirm X treatment platform precisely applies an even-layer of RF energy at the appropriate depth for safe, effective results.
How is Sylfirm X Different from Traditional Microneedling?
At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, you have the choice of Sylfirm X RF microneedling or traditional microneedling. Both are advantageous in their own ways. Traditional microneedling stimulates collagen production through the creation of hundreds of pinpoint injuries in the superficial layers of the skin. The results of this treatment stem from the body's natural inflammatory response that works to rebuild collagen fibers after an injury. The Syfirm treatment takes this concept a step further. Using repeated ultra-short pulse technology, Sylfirm X targets abnormal neovascularities and vascular lesions, as well as the causes of aging skin. This device is the first to gain FDA approval for the use of pulsed wave and continuous wave radiofrequency technology for dramatic skin revitalization.
What Can Sylfirm X Treat?
The Sylfirm X microneedling system is clinically proven to safely and effectively address several common issues, including:
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Redness and rough texture
- Pigmented lesions
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Depending on your treatment goals, you may achieve a rewarding outcome with just one treatment. For more significant correction of concerns like scarring, stretch marks, and skin laxity, we may suggest up to five treatment sessions. These are scheduled four to six weeks apart. You can expect to notice progressive improvements as your skin receives healthy new stores of collagen, elastin, and other nourishment.
What Should I Expect During Recovery from Sylfirm X Treatment?
Before your Sylfirm X treatment, your provider will apply topical numbing cream to the treatment area. This may leave your skin feeling slightly desensitized after your 10-minute procedure is done. You may also notice some subtle swelling and redness. These side effects usually resolve in one to five days. That said, until you know how your skin will look after this treatment, you may want to arrange your appointments at a time when you can go home afterward. You should be able to return to your normal activities later that day or the following day without any indication of your treatment. The exception may be Sylfirm X for melasma or other vascular conditions. After these sessions, the hyperpigmented spots may darken before they fade. This process can take a week or two. Your provider can discuss how to care for your skin after your Sylfirm X treatment and how you may disguise the appearance of darkened spots using makeup and proper moisturizer.
