Hurst Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer Sylfirm X, a dual wave radio frequency microneedling system that safely and effectively addresses skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, pore size, acne, and pigmentation and enhances skin rejuvenation. This machine is the first and only FDA cleared pulsed wave and continuous wave radio frequency micro needling device. The pulsed wave option treats pigmentation and redness while the continuous wave option focuses on lifting and tightening the skin. Sylfirm X is the only pulsed wave RF microneedling device that targets vascular pigmentation. It is effective at any age on all skin tones and types. Collagen production is stimulated by heat generated from the radio frequency, leading to tighter, more youthful appearing skin.
In most cases, two to three sessions lasting between 20-45 minutes depending on the size of the target area at four to six week intervals have been shown to produce the most optimal results. The treatments effect a slight tingling sensation with minimal pressure but can vary amongst patients. Often, topical anesthetic is applied to the site prior to the procedure in order to minimize discomfort. Side effects are typically limited to mild erythema (redness) and swelling. Usually, minimal down time is experienced following the treatment with an almost immediate return to normal activity. Adequate sun protection and moisturizer are important in guaranteeing a fast recovery and maintaining the desired outcome. Some results such as skin tone and texture change can be seen right away, while collagen synthesis enhancement occurs over time and can last up to several years.
