Sylfirm X Microneedling


At Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa, we’re committed to giving our patients the best in skin care technology. Doing so allows us to stay at the forefront of aesthetic innovation and provide treatments that are bold and timeless. That’s why we’re proud to offer Sylfirm X, a cutting-edge microneedling system that rejuvenates the skin with minimal downtime or recovery. This advanced device can treat a wide range of concerns to help you achieve a smooth, youthful-looking complexion that enhances your natural beauty.

What is Sylfirm X Microneedling?

Sylfirm X is the next generation of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. It is the world’s first device to utilize dual wave technology and the only microneedling system approved to safely treat conditions such as rosacea, melasma and hyperpigmentation. While comparable treatment options are available, Sylfirm X is in a league of its own thanks to a cutting-edge repeated ultra-short pulse (RP) delivery, which reacts solely to the abnormal blood vessels that cause redness and skin discoloration. This versatile device can also effectively lift and tighten treated areas for a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. 

How Does Sylfirm X Microneedling Work?

Sylfirm X uses proven mechanisms to rejuvenate your appearance. During treatment, microneedles puncture the outermost layer of skin to trigger a natural healing response, which leads to skin renewal and collagen growth. The addition of RF energy enhances this effect by heating the deeper dermal layers and further increasing collagen production for more dramatic results.

Sylfirm X’s dual wave technology allows for highly precise treatments. The device can be adjusted to provide either continuous wave or pulsed wave benefits. Continuous wave mode delivers single, long pulses of energy into the skin and causes widespread coagulation around each microneedle. This reaches the entire dermal layer to lift and tighten treated areas. Pulsed wave mode is more selective and produces short, rapid bursts of energy that create a softer coagulation effect. This targets abnormal blood vessels to reduce redness and discoloration. The device’s unique RP delivery system reacts only to the affected tissues, safely treating conditions like rosacea and melasma while minimizing collateral damage.

Coagulation is important because it increases collagen production and tissue remodeling. Without it, treatments are often unsatisfactory. When coagulation occurs, the body’s healing response to injury is much more intense, ensuring maximum skin tightening and rejuvenation. Sylfirm X has been clinically shown to provide two different types of coagulation that make it suitable for patients with a wide variety of needs. In total, the device has eight different modes of operation for truly customized results.

If you have a specific condition you’d like to address or simply want a healthier, more vibrant complexion, Sylfirm X microneedling may be right for you. Our aesthetic experts can help you decide if this treatment is suitable during a consultation, where your skin care needs and goals will be thoroughly examined.

The Science of Collagen Stimulation with Sylfirm X

Collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, is a critical component of healthy, youthful-looking skin. This sturdy, fibrous protein forms a supportive lattice in the dermis, giving skin its firmness, elasticity and smooth texture. As collagen production declines, it leads to wrinkles, sagging and other visible signs of aging.

Sylfirm X is designed to combat this collagen loss using two proven techniques: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. The treatment begins with creating thousands of microchannels in the skin using ultra-fine needles. This precise, controlled injury kickstarts the body’s wound-healing response, which involves the production of new collagen to repair the damage.

Simultaneously, Sylfirm X delivers focused RF energy through the microneedles, heating the deep dermal layers. This thermal energy further enhances collagen production and remodeling by two mechanisms. First, it causes the existing collagen fibers to contract and tighten, providing an immediate firming effect. Second, the heat stimulates fibroblasts, the cells responsible for synthesizing new collagen, leading to long-term skin thickness and resilience improvements.

What sets Sylfirm X apart is its unique dual-wave technology, which allows it to emit RF energy in either a continuous or pulsed mode. Continuous wave mode delivers uniform heat to the entire treatment area, reaching depths of up to 4mm. This deep dermal heating is ideal for treating wrinkles, laxity and textural irregularities. Pulsed wave mode, on the other hand, emits ultra-short bursts of energy that selectively target pigmentation and vascularity in the superficial dermis. This unparalleled precision makes Sylfirm X highly effective for conditions like melasma and rosacea without causing widespread damage.

Unlike more aggressive resurfacing treatments, Sylfirm X requires no downtime, allowing patients to enjoy refreshed, revitalized skin immediately.

The Sylfirm X Treatment Process

Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa is committed to providing the most advanced, effective aesthetic treatments in a warm, welcoming environment. Our team of skilled providers will be with you every step of the way to ensure a positive, transformative Sylfirm X experience.

  1. Your Sylfirm X experience begins with a personalized consultation. One of our expert aesthetic providers at Lucienne will evaluate your skin concerns, goals and medical history to determine if Sylfirm X is right for you. We’ll discuss the expected outcomes of treatment plans and answer any questions you may have.
  2. On the day of your treatment, you’ll relax in one of our spa-like treatment rooms while we cleanse your skin and apply a soothing numbing cream to ensure comfort. As the cream takes effect, the machine is set to your customized treatment settings, such as needle depth, energy intensity, and pulse, and is put into the Sylfirm X device.
  3. Next, the Sylfirm X handpiece will be glided over your treatment areas. You may feel gentle pressure and warmth as the hair-thin needles and RF energy penetrate your skin, but most patients report little to no discomfort. Treatment typically takes less than one hour, depending on the size of the area and your specific protocol.
  4. Immediately after your session, we’ll apply a cooling mask or oxygen therapy to calm your skin. You may appear flushed, similar to a mild sunburn, but this subsides quickly. Return to your typical daily activities immediately, with no downtime required.
  5. In the following days and weeks, your skin will become smoother, firmer and more radiant as new collagen forms. We recommend returning for a series of treatments spaced about one month apart. With each session, you’ll see your skin concerns fade, and your complexion becomes clearer, brighter and more youthful-looking.

What to Expect During Treatment

Compared to similar devices, Sylfirm X allows for a faster and more comfortable microneedling experience. The entire procedure can take less than 40 minutes to complete, but this may vary depending on your concerns and goals. Your provider will review your personalized treatment plan and adjust the device’s settings before proceeding.

During treatment, one of our aesthetic experts will use a handheld microneedling pen to penetrate the skin at a precise depth. At the same time, continuous wave or pulsed wave RF energy will be delivered directly into the dermal tissues, increasing the body’s wound healing response and stimulating collagen production. It also has the added benefit of remodeling existing collagen, tightening the skin and breaking down texture problems. You may feel warmth and discomfort as the device works to improve your complexion, but a numbing cream will be applied for a pain-free experience.

Afterward, you’ll be able to resume your normal activities with no recovery or downtime. Results will be immediately apparent and continue to develop as collagen production increases in the weeks following your treatment.

Sylfirm X Results & Recovery

You may experience temporary redness and swelling after your Sylfirm X treatment. This is normal and should subside within the next 24 hours. Your skin may also feel tighter and more sensitive than usual, but an ice pack can be used to calm treated areas. While there are no restrictions or specific aftercare protocols to follow, it’s recommended that you use gentle cleansers and avoid exfoliating for the next few days. The microscopic punctures that stimulate collagen production also make your skin more vulnerable to UV damage, so it’s important to keep treated areas protected with a high SPF sunscreen.

Most patients notice an immediate difference in their skin’s tone and texture immediately after treatment, but more dramatic results will develop as collagen production continues to climb. Within a month, your skin will look visibly smoother, tighter and firmer. Your complexion will have a youthful glow that continues to improve for the next six months to a year. It will also appear clearer and more even as redness and discolorations fade. 

Depending on your concerns and the level of correction needed, you may be able to achieve your skin care goals after a single treatment. In some cases, up to five treatments may be recommended for optimal results. Our aesthetic experts can develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs during an initial consultation.
