At Hurst Plastic Surgery in Tucson, Dr. Craig Hurst is pleased to offer Sylfirm X, a dual wave radio frequency microneedling system, to enhance your appearance. This machine is the first and only FDA cleared pulsed wave and continuous wave radio frequency microneedling device.

For All Skin Tones and Types
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 radio frequency microneedling device that targets vascular pigmentation. Collagen production is stimulated by heat generated from the radiofrequency leading to tighter, more youthful appearing skin. It is effective on all skin tones and types.
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 offer the most optimal results. The device can be employed on any part of the face or body. It is most commonly used for the neck, face, and chest, but has also shown to be beneficial to the skin of the abdomen and thighs. The treatments produce 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 treatments 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.
