If you have ever tried microneedling for smoother, younger-looking skin, RF microneedling can take those results to the next level. RF microneedling combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy to penetrate the deepest layers of your skin and improve several skin concerns, such as facial lines, scars, wrinkles, and more.
In this post, you can learn about how RF microneedling works and the type of results you can expect.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
During this treatment, fine needles create microscopic skin injuries to stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production. At the same time, RF energy waves impact the underlying layers of the skin, encouraging deeper skin remodeling. The result is the generation of new, healthier skin cells.
Sylfirm X is the latest dual-wave RF microneedling device, innovated to selectively treat abnormal tissue such as pigmentation and vascular irregularities such as rosacea and melasma.
Benefits of RF Microneedling
RF microneedling works well on most skin types and can improve a number of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Skin laxity
- Rough skin texture
- Enlarged pores
You can also combine microneedling with a facial treatment such as HydraFacial® to enhance your skin’s improvement.
What To Expect During Your Sylfirm X RF Treatment
Your provider will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin before your treatment to minimize discomfort. The treatment will take around 30 minutes, depending on the treated area and skin concern. While your skin will look fresher and more evenly toned after the first treatment, patients typically need up to 5 treatment sessions for the best results.
The Sylfirm X device uses an advanced robotic system to penetrate the required skin depth and achieve natural-looking and long-lasting results. Your provider can operate the device in different modes to customize the treatment based on your unique needs.
What Is Recovery Like After RF Microneedling?
Most patients can return to their regular routine immediately after the treatment. You may experience some swelling, redness, discomfort, and sensitivity, but these symptoms should subside in a few days. Apply an ice pack when needed and stick to a gentle cleanser when washing your face. Your provider will advise you to refrain from wearing makeup for 24 hours, as certain ingredients in makeup can irritate your skin.
How Long Will My Results Last?
After your initial series of treatments, your results should last up to 1 year. You can opt for a yearly touch-up session to maintain your results. To preserve your results for as long as possible, focus on your skin health by using sun protection, eating a balanced diet, and getting plenty of hydration.
As with any cosmetic treatment, a skilled and experienced provider will provide safe and long-lasting results.
If you want a robust skin treatment that can address several skin concerns with minimal discomfort, including hard-to-treat melasma, Sylfirm X RF microneedling is a good choice for you.
