How Does the Sylfirm X Device Work?

Sylfirm X uses Regional Regeneration Radio Repeated Pulse (RP) microneedling to target and treat the abnormal vessels that can lead to melasma, rosacea, and other skin discolorations. With the help of many micro electrodes, an electromagnetic field of energy is created that can penetrate the dermal layer without damaging the tissue.

A robotic system ensures the precise application of the evenly-layered electrodes to reach the desired depth during treatment. By covering all dermal layers, microneedling treatments are faster, more effective, and more comfortable for patients. Additionally, practitioners can choose from eight modes depending on the goals of the treatment.


One Treatment - 12 Benefits

  • Reduces skin laxity and minimize aging lines and wrinkles
