Sylfirm X is the world’s first dual-wave radiofrequency microneedling technology, which is designed to treat tricky skin concerns, including skin laxity, uneven pigmentation, rosacea, fine lines, acne scars, large pores, hooded eyes, eye bags and more. 

WHY IS SYLFIRM X EXCITING?

Unlike conventional RF microneedling such as Morpheus 8 and Potenza, Sylfirm X dual wave technology enables it to treat skin mild and moderate skin laxity as well as traditionally tricky skin concerns such as melasma and rosacea. Plus, it does so with very minimal downtime - a few hours of recovery. It has multiple customisable modes for targeted treatment of your skin and it is suitable for all skin types.

WHAT CONCERNS CAN YOU TREAT WITH SYLFIRM X?

Due to the eight different modes on offer, Sylfirm X can treat multiple concerns on both your face and body.

  • vascular pigmentation issues, including rosacea, melasma, and solar lentigo

  • vascular lesions and small broken blood vessels

  • post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)

  • acne scars

  • stretch marks

  • mild skin laxity

  • fine lines and wrinkles

  • uneven skin texture and tone

  • large pores

HOW LONG DOES SYLFIRM X TAKE?

It’s pretty quick! The treatment itself is likely to last around 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas you wish to target. Numbing cream isn’t always required, but if you want it or Dr Nema recommends it, it is applied 15 to 20 minutes pre-appointment, so it can easily be factored into your timings.

HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU SEE RESULTS?

If your key concern is a reduction in the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring, expect to see results about a month after treatment. Skin tightening is likely to take a little longer, as it takes time for the benefits of boosted collagen production to be seen. By about three months post-treatment though, you should be seeing your best results.

Plus, if you are impatient, it’s good to know that most patients report some decree of visible tightening straight after treatment, and a general improvement in skin quality within just a few weeks, so there will be benefits before the big finish.

HOW LONG DO YOUR RESULTS LAST?

You can enjoy the benefits of a course of Sylfirm X treatments for up to a year, with annual maintenance recommended. You can also prolong your results by wearing spf (to avoid collagen breakdown and age spots) – although we’d like to think you are doing so anyway.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME LIKE?

Sylfirm X has been celebrated, in the US especially, for its minimal downtime compared to other RF microneedling devices. Straight after your treatment, your skin will be a little red, and may feel slightly tight, like a sunburn, but there shouldn’t be swelling.

That means any side effects should not be very lifestyle-affecting. However, as will all such treatments, your skin will be sun-sensitive, so using a broad-spectrum sunscreen is non-negotiable.  You should avoid exercise, swimming and saunas for 24 hours too.

IS SYLFIRM X SAFE?

Rest assured that the technology has been rigorously tested and assessed for safety, but it’s important to note that most RF microneedling complications – for example visible pin-pricks – stem from improper technique. That means it’s really important to choose a trusted and well-trained medical practitioner.

The treatment is also not recommended for individuals who are pregnant, have a pacemaker or who are on anti-coagulation drugs. It isn’t suitable for anyone with super sensitive skin either, or those with active acne or eczema.

IS THERE PROOF IT WORKS?

As well as plenty of impressive before-and-after photographs, Sylfirm X is supported by over twenty-five publications, which emphasise its safety, versatility and clinical efficacy. That includes clinical trials by Korea’s leading university hospitals.

Exosome Therapy uses naturally occurring active secretory factors from plants (including liposomes, growth factors, and anti-stressing factors) which stimulate your skin at a cellular level to function at its optimum.

 

Exosomes are not cells but signalling messengers, they awaken and stimulate your skin at a cellular level by activating cells to work optimally. These tiny vesicles contains some of the cell’s proteins, DNA, and RNA.

Exosome get released into the blood by many types of cells, and travel through the blood helping with intercell communication.  

At Dr Nema's clinic, Exosome Therapy is typically administered in conjunction with micro-needling/ RadioFrequency and laser resurfacing.
