Sylfirm X Q&A

What is Sylfirm X?

Sylfirm X is an innovative device that combines micro needling and RF energy to selectively treat pigmentation issues and vascular lesions. This minimally invasive treatment strives to restore balance to your complexion while firming and tightening lax skin. The result is tighter, clearer, younger-looking skin without surgery or injections.

How does Sylfirm X work?

Sylfirm X is a one-of-a-kind device that uses ultra-short pulses to create tiny micro-wounds in the skin and stimulate collagen production, as well as accelerate cell turnover. Unlike other micro needling treatments, the device only targets the affected tissue and blood vessels, leaving your healthy tissue untouched. 

Not only does this treatment cause less damage to the skin, but it may also be less painful than comparable devices.

What can Sylfirm X treat?

Sylfirm X can significantly minimize the appearance of pigmentation abnormalities and vascular lesions, such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Redness
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dull skin
  • Minor scarring
  • Stretch marks


Even if you’re happy with your skin overall, Sylfirm stimulates new collagen — a protein found in your connective tissues — to promote firmer, tighter skin as you age.

What can I expect from Sylfirm X?

When you arrive for your Sylfirm X appointment, your MELORA Health & Enhancement provider applies a topical anesthetic to numb your skin. Next, they use the micro needling device to simultaneously create micro-wounds in your skin and emit radiofrequency energy. Depending on the areas you want to treat, each session takes just 20-30 minutes.

How many Sylfirm X treatments will I need?

Many patients experience visible skin tone and texture improvements after a single treatment. However, your provider may recommend up to five treatments, spaced weeks apart, to achieve your desired results. Since Sylfirm X is a safe, minimally invasive treatment, you can return to MELORA Health & Enhancement for maintenance treatments to extend your results.

Is there downtime after Sylfirm X treatments?

Most patients require very little downtime after Sylfirm X treatments and can typically resume their normal activities within 1-2 days. Mild swelling, redness, bruising, and peeling are common side effects of RF micro needling that should subside within a few days.
