Sylfirm X is the most recent advancement in Radiofrequency microneedling technology, reacting to only abnormal blood vessels and tissue to selectively treat increased pigmentation and vascular lesions in addition to traditional skin tightening which is what RF Microneedling has been known for. This newest generation technology has been clinically proved to safely and efficiently address a variety of concerns, including wrinkles, redness, acne scars, pore minimization, and overall skin appearance and tone improvement.

How does Sylfirm X work?
This system uses acupuncture sized needles in a square grid to delivery radio frequency energy or heat to the dermis without damaging the epidermis or outer layer of the skin. This system is safe for all skin types and requires very little downtime (we could safely say less than 1 day of socially acceptable downtime).
Using Sylfirm X technology has a number of advantages for the patients:
- These treatments are completed more quickly
- Patients experience little to minimal pain (average feedback is 2-3 out of 10 pain scale with numbing cream)
- Minimal invasiveness
- Amazing outcomes
- There is little or no downtime
- For many people, the outcomes are immediately obvious
Not all offices deliver the same results. Dr. Jongju Na the inventor of Sylfirm X from South Korea personally trained each and every provider at Ageless MD to give the absolute best results. Each individual person has unique skin issues that must be addressed specifically and with appropriate energy level and depth of energy penetration. This is definitely NOT a cookie cutter treatment. A full assessment is performed well in advance before your treatment to determine what your skin issues and therefore what treatment parameters we will be using. Whether you are in your 20’s and would like to reduce your acne scars from teenage years, or you are 60 year old district attorney and would like to lift and tighten the jowls while in the courtroom. We have different treatment protocols for each unique situation. Almost any person at any age group can benefit from Sylfirm X.
Q. How many Sylfirm X treatments will be required?
A. Most people see an improvement in their skin after only one treatment. Up to five or six sessions may be prescribed depending on the uniqueness of each patient and their goals. For example a young 20 something year old with healthy skin may need just 1-2 treatments to make their skin look amazing. On the other hand, someone with severe acne scars may require 4-6 sessions to give them visibly significant results.
Q. How long will the treatment take?
A. The treatment itself takes between 45-90 minutes (not including 45-60 minutes of numbing time), depending on the region to be treated.
Q. How long do the outcomes last?
A. Everyone is unique, but the collagen you produce is your own and continues to be produced at a rapid rate for three months. The results generally last a solid year or longer. Your face and body will continue to age of course so this just sets the clock back on your skin. Living a healthy lifestyle is still important in looking and feeling your best to maintain the effects of this treatment.
Q. What exactly is radiofrequency?
A. Radiofrequency is a type of energy that generates heat, which stimulates collagen formation, resulting in tighter, younger- looking skin. Patients achieve the best outcomes when delivered with fractionated microneedles.
Q. Is Sylfirm X uncomfortable and painful?
A. The majority of patients report a sensation of mild tingling feeling and some warmth to the skin. A topical numbing cream is used before this procedure to promote optimal comfort, however, we all experience pain differently. We often use various comfort measures to ensure that we can provide the finest treatment possible. At Ageless MD we also offer laughing gas or PRONOX to enhance the comfort level and provide extreme relaxation during the treatment. 10 minutes after discontinuing the laughing gas you are completely normal and can even drive home.
Q. Is one treatment sufficient?
A. For re-texturizing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, it is recommended to get 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Some clients have noticed excellent benefits after only one session, but the average skin condition necessitates 2-3 treatments. Remember the rule of thumb: prevention is always more difficult than repair. While improvements for skin tone and texture can be visible immediately, there is an improvement with each treatment, with the process of collagen regeneration growing with time.
Q. Is the treatment appropriate for tanned skin?
A. Sylfirm is an excellent treatment for all skin types since it targets the dermis while minimizing thermo- stimulation on the epidermis. Sylfirm, unlike some other laser treatments, may be used safely on tanned and darker skin tones.
Q. What other areas of the body can be treated with Sylfirm X?
A. The number one area outside the face we treat is the neck. The neck and hands usually give away your age. It is very important to have the skin texture, tone, and color match that of the skin on the face. We highly recommend treating the neck along with the face to keep that smooth continuum of youthful skin on your exposed areas of the face and neck. You can also receive Sylfirm X on anywhere in the body you want the skin to be firmer and tighter such as abdomen, arms, knees, hands, etc.
