Microneedling RF

What is radiofrequency microneedling?

Microneedling uses a fine needle to create microwounds, or channels, in the skin. This triggers the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen. It’s also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy. If the procedure also uses radiofrequency waves, it’s called radiofrequency microneedling. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

The most common areas are lower face and neck, but any area that can benefit from sub-dermal renewal can be treated with Sylfirm X. Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Treatments are generally 15-20 minutes after numbing, which takes 20-25 minutes. While you can resume normal daily activities immediately after treatment, some patients experience slight redness that can be easily covered up by makeup.

Sylfirm X/MicroneedlingRF Treats:

- Acne and acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Poor skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Lines and creases in the skin
- Sun damage
- Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles and discoloration


Visible results can be seen after only a few days. More noticeable results typically take a couple of months and full results require about six months as collagen production can be a fairly slow process.

For best results, we recommend 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. This gives our patients maximum anti-aging and skin rejuvenation results. If you have acne scarring or stretchmarks you are looking to treat, you may require 4-6 treatments to get you ideal results. Every patient is different, and during your consultation we’ll be able to outline a course of treatment based on your individual anatomy, health history and aesthetic needs.
