Pulsed RF Microneedling
Dual-Wave Radiofrequency Microneedling System For Treating Melasma
Dual Wave Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology can help to treat skin laxity, stubborn pigmentation and vascular lesions. RF microneedling harnesses benefits of both RF and microneedle to stimulate the release of growth factors by producing controlled micro-injuries and deliver RF into the skin more effectively and accurately. Unlike conventional RF microneedling systems that only have Continuous Wave (CW), Dual Wave RF technology has both CW and Pulsed Wave (PW). In addition, with 8 different modes, treatments can be customised, taking into account the indications, skin conditions, to provide a more effective treatment.
With the system’s 300μm targeted therapy, it addresses the papillary dermis just under the basement membrane. This particular function precisely addresses symptoms of pigmented and/or vascular lesions, strengthens the basement membrane, and increases collagen production, thereby improving overall skin health.
Main Features of Dual Wave RF Microneedles
The microneedles are elaborately manufactured to offer a convenient, effective treatment with minimal downtime.
Here are some main features of its microneedles:
What Is Dual Wave And What Does It Do?
Continuous delivery of RF energy causes the skin tissue to coagulate non-selectively around the microneedles.The RF energy is continuously irradiated into the tissue over a preset period of time. The temperature of the skin tissue increases above 60°C. This causes tissue protein denaturation, stimulating the skin to kickstart dermal remodeling. Thus, CW function is suitable for skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, lifting and scar revision. Whereas for PW, energy is irradiated into the skin. It reacts according to the electrical conductivity of each tissue. Tissue reacts selectively in the basement membrane, addressing skin concerns relating to microvascular and small blood vessels.
RF energy is irradiated into the skin in the form of multiple pulses. It increases the temperature of the skin more gradually, between 42 and 45°C. This gradual temperature increase causes protein structural changes within the skin, making it an excellent treatment for pigmented and vascular lesions such as melasma and diffuse skin redness.
What is Melasma?
Dual Wave RF Microneedling selectively breaks down stubborn pigments
Dual Wave RF microneedling is a melasma treatment that selectively targets areas of the skin which lasers previously cannot reach, to break down the abnormal cells in the skin without harming the surrounding healthy skin. Laser toning and many other laser treatments only address the superficial layers of the skin without reaching the deeper layers of the skin where these stubborn pigments originate. Undergoing such laser treatments often only leads to temporary results. In fact, undergoing too many laser treatments may even worsen the skin pigmentation and cause an irreversible mottling of the skin.
Targeted treatment for stubborn skin pigmentation with minimal downtime
With the pulsed RF wave technology, the system gradually increases the temperature of the skin tissues between 42°C and 45°C. In turn, this will cause protein structural change or collagen shrinkage, which promotes the wound healing process and tissue remodeling, which will ultimately help to effectively treat melasma, rosacea, and other stubborn pigmentation.
In addition, it strengthens the basement membrane (in the epidermis), thickens it, and improves overall skin health.
Treating melasma with ease
Melasma pigments are notoriously difficult to treat because they form in multiple layers of the skin. We now also know that melasma is more than just a pigmentary condition. It is also caused by other problems in the skin, such as inflammation, abnormal blood vessels, and a weakened base layer of the epidermis, also known as the basement membrane.
Pulsed RF microneedling system works on several layers of the skin to improve melasma – from the deepest to the most superficial, and targets not only the melanin pigment deposits but also the abnormal blood vessels and basement membrane which aggravate the melasma.
By targeting the root causes of melasma, Pulsed RF microneedling system offers an effective, convenient way to treat this stubborn condition.
Helps to strengthen skin foundation
Other than its capability of treating melasma, Sylfirm X is also designed to improve the health and appearance of the skin by strengthening the basement membrane, which is a layer of skin that sits between the epidermis and the dermis.
The function in Sylfirm X is Transcutaneous Acupuncture (TCA), which is a micro-needling technology that creates micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are two proteins that are essential for maintaining the strength and elasticity of the skin.
The micro-channels also allow the TCA to penetrate deeper into the skin, where it can stimulate the cells that produce the basement membrane. This helps to strengthen the basement membrane and improve its function, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
