What is Sylfirm X RF microneedling?
Sylfirm X is a state-of-the-art microneedling device that uses RF (radiofrequency) energy to firm and rejuvenate the skin. By emitting powerful pulses of RF energy, the device stimulates action in the dermal cells, making the skin tighter, firmer, and smoother. This provides a non-invasive and effective means of addressing common skin concerns such as pigmentation, wrinkles, vascular lesions, and scarring.
The treatment involves making careful, precise micro-injuries to the skin, while simultaneously creating thermal effects. This triggers the skin’s natural wound-healing systems, stimulating healthy cell renewal, growth factors, and collagen production. The use of microneedles allows the RF energy to penetrate more effectively and precisely into the treatment areas, for high-qality and long-lasting skin rejuvenation results.
The device features a dual-wave system, which makes the treatment versatile and allows it to be customised to the unique needs and preferences of each patient. It is minimally invasive and yields effective and noticeable results, giving each patient the smooth, revived skin appearance they desire.

Sylfirm X offers the benefits of an excellent RF microneedling treatment, combined with reduced discomfort, shorter recovery times, and faster treatments. Combining microneedling with the power of RF energy makes the treatment quicker and more reliable than other skin rejuvenation methods.
The treatment can offer excellent benefits for people with a wide range of skin concerns and conditions.

Sylfirm X RF consultation at Shellharbour Skin
Our dedicated team at Shellharbour Skin take time with each client to understand their needs and help them get the most out of their treatment. This means before going ahead with your Sylfirm X RF session, we will need to meet with you privately to discuss your options and develop a plan of action that best serves you and your skin. During this consultation, you will be invited to tell us about your skin concerns, which areas you wish to target, and your envisioned outcomes. You should also make sure to raise any concerns or questions, as well as any medical or health issues we should know about. We will then provide you with personalised recommendations and work to develop a treatment plan that gives you pleasing outcomes.
What to expect
It is important to understand the treatment process beforehand so that you are aware of and prepared for what to expect. On the day of your appointment, your face should be clean and free of makeup. We will apply a numbing cream to your treatment site in order to make the process comfortable and painless.
When the numbing cream has taken effect, your dermal clinician will apply the electronically-controlled handpiece to the treatment area, delivering pulses of RF energy into the skin. The energy creates thermal heating without damaging the healthy skin cells. The micro-injuries created by the device will begin stimulating the body’s healing response and producing and increase in collagen, leading to a smoother skin tone and texture.
Cost of microneedling treatments in Illawarra
Since each Sylfirm X treatment is customised to the client, costs may vary. When developing a treatment plan for you, we will consider factors such as your skin condition, treatment areas, and desired outcomes. This will help us determine an appropriate approach to your treatment, including the duration and number of sessions required. Once we have discussed these and any other relevant information, we can then provide you with an estimate of costs. To learn more about the cost of your Sylfirm X treatment, we can answer your questions during a private consultation.
Results and aftercare
After your Sylfirm X treatment, it is common for the treated skin to be slightly warm and pink. This is normal, however, and should resolve within 24 hours. During this time, it is important to take care of your skin, as your skin cells will be in the process of healing and renewing. This means you should avoid rubbing or irritating your skin, and avoid wearing makeup. In some case, patients pay experience some skin dryness and flaking, which should resolve after two to three days.
Your results will become increasingly visible in the days and weeks following your Sylfirm X treatment. This is due to the gradual process of cell renewal and collagen production, which will give your skin a stronger, firmer texture and a more even skin tone over time. Most patients see the best results after two to three months.
Risks & complications
One advantage of Sylfirm X is its minimally invasive nature. The gentle but effective treatment method means that there is very little risk of adverse effects or complications. However, it is possible to experience some mild side effects, and you should be aware of these before going ahead with treatment. These risks or side effects may include skin sensitivity, some swelling and redness, and pinpoint bleeding. It is rare for patients to experience serious complications, but if you notice any adverse effects, contact the clinic and we will advise you.
