SYLFIRM X RF Microneedling
SYLFIRM X is a cutting-edge RF microneedling device offered here in Portland that stands out for its ability to address a broad range of skin concerns. Unlike other microneedling devices, SYLFIRM X can effectively reduce pigmentation, minimize vascularity, and improve skin laxity, making it an excellent option for anyone seeking comprehensive skin rejuvenation. It is a versatile treatment that can be used on any part of the body, making it an excellent option for individuals looking to target multiple areas. By using advanced radiofrequency technology, SYLFIRM X stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to a more youthful, glowing complexion.

With SYLFIRM X, you can achieve impressive results without the need for invasive procedures or long recovery periods.

What Is SYLFIRM X RF Microneedling?
SYLFIRM X RF microneedling combines microneedling, which uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin at depths of 0.3mm to 4mm, triggering your body’s natural healing process, while delivering RF energy into the deep layers of the skin, called the dermis. Thanks to this adjustable depth of treatment, your provider is able to treat a variety of skin concerns, from dull tone and uneven texture to rosacea and hyperpigmentation.
SYLFIRM X is different from other RF microneedling devices because it can selectively target melasma, redness, rosacea, and vascular lesions.
The RF energy used by the SYLFIRM X RF microneedling device uses 2 modes to treat different skin concerns. The Pulsed Wave Mode uses pulses of RF energy to target dark pigmentation, vascular lesions, and acne. By specifically targeting skin discoloration and pockets of pigment, SYLFIRM X is able to trigger your skin to break up the pigmentation and new, clear skin is formed over time. The Continuous Wave Mode uses a continuous pulse of RF energy deep into the skin layers to trigger skin tightening and lifting, resulting in improved skin texture, fewer lines and wrinkles, and smaller pores.
This combination of adjustable depth and RF energy delivery makes SYLFIRM X an ideal treatment for addressing a variety of skin concerns.
What Does SYLFIRM X RF Microneedling Treat?
SYLFIRM X has the ability to treat a wide range of skin concerns for all skin types. Our skin rejuvenation experts treat men and women of all ages. During your consultation, our skincare experts will assess your skin and discuss your goals to then create a customized treatment plan that may include other medical spa treatments, such as injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers.
SYLFIRM X RF microneedling can be used to improve:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Lax skin
- Acne scars
- Active acne
- Vascular lesions
- Stretch marks
How Soon Will I See Results?
Since RF microneedling works in the deep layers of the skin to trigger the production of collagen and elastin, full results may take several weeks to appear. You should see some improvement in the tone and texture of your skin after 1 treatment, with full results appearing after several weeks.
After one session, many patients in clinical studies showed an improvement of melasma and hyperpigmentation, smaller pores, and tighter, lifted skin. Most patients experienced significant improvements in their skin’s appearance after 3 sessions. We recommend scheduling 3 sessions, spaced 1 month apart. During your consultation, your skincare specialist will determine the specific timing of your treatments.
How Long Do the Results Last?
To maintain your skin tightening results, we recommend continuing treatments every 6 to 12 months. For melasma, scarring, and stretch marks, you should not require any ongoing maintenance treatments.
Is There Any Downtime?
You can expect little to no downtime following your SYLFIRM X RF microneedling treatment. Depending on your skin concerns and the treatment performed, you may experience some redness or slight swelling in the treatment area following the procedure, but this fades quickly.
Make sure to protect your skin with sunblock following treatment for optimal results.
