Sylfirm Laser Selectively Breaks Down Stubborn Pigments
Laser toning and many other types of 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 problem by causing darkening of the pigments, and an irreversible mottling of the skin.
What Syfirm does is that it 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.
Targeted treatment for stubborn pigmentation with minimal downtime
Sylfirm uses a pulsed radiofrequency wave to generate an electrothermal effect on the skin. In particular, Sylfirm effectively targets stubborn pigmentation such as melasma and rosacea. It works by introducing micro-needles into the skin. The precisely generated electric field directly changes the melanin in pigmented lesions, also selectively targets abnormal blood vessels.
In addition, Sylfirm stimulates healing of the basement membrane (in the epidermis), thickening it, and improving skin health.
Treating melasma with ease using Sylfirm
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 others problems in the skin, such as inflammation, abnormal blood vessels, and a weakened base layer of the epidermis, also known as the basement membrane.
Sylfirm works on several layers of the skin – 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, Sylfirm offers an effective, convenient way to treat this stubborn condition.
Sylfirm laser strengthens the skin foundation
In addition to breaking down the dark pigments, it also strengthens the foundation layers of the skin to reduce melanin migration from epidermis to dermis.
Sylfirm reinforces the epidermis, reforms vessels in the dermis, and regenerate skin tissue to strengthen the foundation layers of the skin.
How is Sylfirm performed?
Prior to the treatment, our therapist will apply a layer of numbing cream to your skin. The micro-needles are then introduced into your skin during the treatment. You will feel some mild discomfort, but this is very tolerable compared to other micro-needling treatments as Sylfirm introduces the needles gently into the skin.
After the procedure, your doctor may order some post-treatment care to cool the skin and reduce any inflammation.
What are some side effects of the treatment?
You can expect your skin to remain slightly red and inflamed but these side effects should be resolved in 2-3 days. Most people are able to go about their usual daily activities after the treatment.
Your doctor may prescribe some cream to sooth the skin more quickly. You should also apply some light moisturizer to aid in the recovery.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Stubborn pigments such as age spots and melasma will be visibly reduced.
You can also expect to see less wrinkles and fine lines on the skin because of the straightening of the deep layers of the skin. You can also expect the skin to brighten and tighten after a series of treatments.
Sylfirm also improves skin redness and broken capillaries. If you suffer from rosacea, you will find your skin less reactive, with less facial flushing and acne outbreaks.
How many sessions are required?
It depends on the severity of your skin condition. You should be able to see some noticeable improvement after 1 session. In many cases, the doctor may advise you to repeat this treatment 2-3 more times with an interval of 4 weeks to achieve better, longer-lasting result.
