Enhance® Medical Center invites you to learn more about how Sylfirm can help you achieve dramatic, rejuvenating results with little discomfort and downtime.

How does Sylfirm X Work?

Sylfirm X operates based on Fractional Advanced Pulse Technology. This technology involves delivering precise micropulses of radiofrequency energy to targeted areas of the skin. The controlled delivery of radiofrequency stimulates collagen production and promotes skin tightening. The result is healthier, firmer and younger-looking skin.

Treatment with Sylfirm X takes approximately one hour to complete, depending on the treatment size. For optimal results, most patients need three consecutive treatment each month. Sylfirm X can also be synergistically combined with complementary treatments such as Ultheraoy and Exosome, Enhancing the potential for superior results.

Post-Microneedling Treatment

To ensure maximum comfort, the patient’s skin is numbed prior to treatment. There is little downtime with Sylfirm; patients can return to work and other normal activities almost immediately after treatment. The treated area may appear flushed or red after treatment, but this will subside within a few hours. Patients should avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight in the hours after treatment.

How Does Sylfirm Differ From Conventional Microneedling?

While Sylfirm and microneedling are both designed to smooth the face and body by increasing collagen, the procedures differ in several ways. Sylfirm offers a series of guarded needles, which makes treatment virtually painless, providing a more comfortable patient experience than traditional microneedling. This feature also helps minimize downtime. In addition, microneedling with Sylfirm offers more dramatic results, thanks to the additional usage of radiofrequency energy to increase collagen production and further tighten the skin. Finally, results with Sylfirm are visible immediately and continue to improve over time while results of microneedling can take up to two months to become visible.

Candidates for Sylfirm Microneedling

Sylfirm microneedling is a good option for individuals who are self-conscious of mild to moderate signs of aging or other problems affecting their skin’s tone and texture. It works well on all skin types, including tanned or dark skin. Candidates should not have any active skin infections or lesions in the target area at the time of treatment.

Microneedling Aftercare

Sylfirm patients should refrain from applying makeup for 24 hours after treatment, wash with warm (not hot) water and avoid using alcohol-based toners for at least two weeks. Patients can return to most of their normal activities almost immediately, as long as they refrain from any strenuous activities for the first 48 to 72 hours after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling

Is at-home microneedling as effective as Sylfirm?

No. At-home microneedling is ineffective and potentially risky to the health and appearance of the skin. The needles on at-home devices are so small that they generally do not make any noticeable difference. If at-home devices are not properly used, they can injure the skin and even lead to unwanted changes in the skin’s pigmentation.

Leave your microneedling treatment to the professionals at Enhance® Medical Center. We have the skill and experience needed to safely deliver noticeable results.

How can Sylfirm meet my personal skin care needs?

Sylfirm is a highly customizable skin treatment. Our Beverly Hills microneedling team can adjust the size, depth and flexibility of the needles as needed to address your desired issues. Once we have examined your skin and understand what you hope to achieve from treatment, we will choose the optimal settings for your skin type and goals.

How does Sylfirm compare to other professional microneedling devices?

Unlike standard microneedling devices, Sylfirm harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to improve the skin from the inside out. The radiofrequency produces a heat response that accelerates the production of new collagen and tightens the skin.

Is Sylfirm microneedling treatment painful?

No. We will numb your skin prior to treatment, so you should not feel any pain. Some of our patients have reported feeling only a warm sensation during treatment, with the occasional pinching sensation.

How will my skin look and feel after a microneedling session?

Your treated skin may look slightly pink or red and have mild swelling for about 24 hours after treatment. Some of our patients have mentioned it feeling like their skin was sunburned after treatment.

How should I prepare for Sylfirm microneedling?

If you smoke, please quit prior to your treatment. Also, avoid using any Retin-A products and exposing your face to the sun for three days leading up to your treatment. On the day of treatment, do not apply makeup or skin care products before your appointment.

When can I see results of Sylfirm microneedling?

You will see initial results of microneedling within three to six weeks after treatment.

How long do the results last?

The longevity of your results depends on your unique skin, the condition we are treating, the number of treatments you undergo and your at-home skin care regimen. We can give you a more precise idea of how long your results will last during your in-person consultation and recommend how to prolong your results.
