What is Sylfirm X?

A: SYLFIRM X is a new dimension in RF micro-needling and the first and only FDA-cleared
device of its kind to be multi-purpose, targeting vessels and pigment, in addition to texture, lines,
and pores for skin rejuvenation, that other RF micro-needling devices have been unable to
achieve thus far.

How does Sylfirm X work?

Energy is released into the device at 2MHz, through the 300 micron needle tips which are
able to target precise depth, for pigment, melasma and textural irrgularities. Sylfirm X can
penetrate the skin between 0.3mm to 4mm, making it able to work on the face as well as the

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

The combination of PW waves and what called “the NA effect” ensures the selective coagulation
using bi-polar non-insulated needles for the treatment of damaged skin cells while maintaining
overall skin health.

What makes Syfirm X different?

This innovative device utilizes the world’s first and only dual wave (continuous wave and pulsed
wave) to effectively treat various indications; not only skin rejuvenation and scars, but also
pigmented and vascular lesions such as melasma, diffuse redness and rosacea that were
difficult to treat with conventional RF microneedling systems.

The microneedles of the SYLFIRM X are gold-plated and manufactured by a robotic system,
making the needles precise, elaborate and durable. Moreover, the needles are non-insulated.
According to the “Na effect”, heat begins at the tip of each needle and expands in the form of
water droplets when bipolar RF energy is delivered to the skin using non-insulated
microneedles. In other words, a very effective and more precise treatment, without the pain of
other RF micro-needling systems.

SYLFIRM is the world’s first and only 300μm targeted therapy to be performed. It has the ability
to get to a unique depth of 0.3mm or 300μm to target the papillary dermis (the upper dermal
layer) located just below the basement membrane, and is an important place for interacting with
the epidermis and senescent fibroblasts and type III collagen are largely distributed. The 300μm
targeted treatment minimizes procedural pain and downtime due to the relatively shallow depth,
but it efficiently treats lesions such as aging related pigmentation, collagen remodeling.

How does Sylfirm X compare to Morphues8?

Mopreus8 is the gold standard RF micro-needling in the world for advanced skin
rejuvenation, including scars, deep lines and wrinkles, and skin tightening, with a depth of
.5mm-7mm for face and body (almost 2x the depth of any device), and the highest heat profile
of which is the most important factor with RF when rejuvenating the skin.
Sylfirm X is the first ever RF device to be able to multi-task targeting vessels, rosacea, pigment,
and melasma, while still helping pores and texture. Morpheus8 is the strongest energy in a
“knock out punch” effect on damaged tissue which can create some discomfort, while Sylfirm X

has more superficial targets in the tissue like pigment and redness, as well a smaller heat
profile, making it more comfortable.
Sylfirm X is uninsulated energy and Morpheus is both uninsulated and insulated, with each
having varying depths. They are both apples to oranges in terms of targets and results. Both are
needed if you want to get everything covered in your skin from texture, tone, wrinkles, and

How does Sylfirm treat melasma?

Sylfirm X’s innovation of the RP (repeated ultra-short pulse) micro-needling technology
makes it such that Sylfirm X reacts to ONLY abnormal blood vessels and tissue to selectively
treat increased pigmentation and vascular lesions—it is the only RF micro-needling device
approved to safely treat neovascularity including hard-to-treat conditions like Rosacea and
Moreover, Sylfirm X's Pulsed Wave Mode is made such that an effect termed as NA Effect is
achieved. In this NA Effect, selective coagulation can effectively treat Melasma by:

  1. Sylfirm X Pulsed Wave helps by regulating hyperactive melanocytes, thus alleviating
    abnormal or overly active melanogenesis
  2. Sylfirm X Pulsed Wave also helps to strengthen the Basement Membrane. By doing so, the
    interaction between the epidermis and dermis is improved, alleviating factors related to
    abnormal or overly active melanogenesis as well.
  3. Sylfirm X Pulsed Waves eliminates abnormal blood vessels and senescent fibroblasts, the
    fibroblasts that affect melanogenesis, thereby reducing the appearances of melasma.

Why is the new pulsed wave mode by Sylfirm X important?

melanogenesis, what gives you pigmentations (melasma, hyperpigmentation, solar lentigo) –
whereby patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin, as well as
hyperangiogenesis to allow for better cell blood circulation.
The pulsed wave indications include:

  1. Pigmented Lesions – Melanogenesis factors in 300μm papillary dermis Melasma, Post-
    inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
  2. Vascular Lesions – Diffuse Redness, Rosacea, Telangiectasia
  3. Acne

What results can I expect?

You can expect to see significant improvements in as little 3 sessions. For skin rejuvenation 5
or more may be needed.

  1. For Melasma/ Hyperpigmentation, according to clinical studies you can expect to see 20-30%
    reduction of pigmentation in just one session.
  2. For open pores, according to clinical

What is the downtime with Sylfirm X?

You can expect little to no downtime with Sylfirm. People may see some redness and light
flushing but they will still be able to proceed with daily activities. However, no sweating or sun
the same day after treatment, and always use SPF when outside.

Who is not a candidate for Sylfirm X?

Everyone is a candidate for Sylfirm X, including all skin types, and ethnicities, however, if you have a
metal allergy you would, unfortunately,  not be a candidate for Sylfirm X.
