RF Microneedling

At Cynthia Salter-Lewis MD Anti-Aging and Cosmetic Medicine in Marlboro, NJ, we offer RF microneedling treatments using the Sylfirm X device to help our patients achieve younger-looking and tighter skin without undergoing an invasive procedure. This device can treat the most common signs of aging that develop due to collagen and elastin loss, improve skin tone and texture, and promote a healthy, vibrant complexion.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a treatment that uses a combination of microneedles and radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin, refine the pores, treat melasma, and correct the most visible signs of aging. We perform our treatments with Sylfirm X, the first FDA-approved pulse and continuous wave radiofrequency microneedling device.

This platform uses dual-wave radiofrequency energy for controlled and precise thermal coagulation. The device delivers repeated ultra pulses during treatment to rejuvenate the skin and even treat hyperpigmentation, vascular lesions, rosacea, and melasma.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

Patients who undergo an RF microneedling treatment can expect a total skin transformation. This treatment process naturally stimulates collagen and elastin production, two essential proteins for healthy and youthful skin. As you age, your body produces less of these proteins, and your skin and appearance suffer. With this treatment, we can naturally increase the production of these proteins to restore a youthful appearance. Some other treatment benefits include the following:

  • Treatments are minimally invasive and comfortable
  • There’s no social downtime
  • It can be combined with other skincare treatments
  • Results appear gradually in the weeks that follow an initial treatment
  • Regular treatments can delay and reverse the aging process
  • The device uses advanced technology to target the most stubborn skin conditions and concerns

What Can It Treat?

Sylfirm X RF microneedling treatments can rejuvenate the skin, remodel collagen, repair damaged skin cells and blood vessels, and refine the pores. We can also use the device to reduce the appearance of redness, including rosacea. It can also:

  • Improve the appearance of acne scars
  • Control breakouts
  • Lift and tighten the skin
  • Minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Treat PIH
  • Increase blood circulation

How Does It Work?

This device is so effective because it creates controlled injuries in the skin by using microneedles and radiofrequency energy. The device inserts 300-micron gold microneedles into the skin during the treatment to force the body to respond with a healing reaction.

Those same needles deliver controlled and precise amounts of radiofrequency energy into the dermal tissue to remodel existing collagen, which causes an instant tightening effect and stimulates the body to produce more collagen and elastin.

Enhancing Your Results

Microneedling treatments create tiny injuries on the surface of the skin, and one of the benefits of the treatment is that those injuries temporarily increase the skin’s absorption rate. That means whatever is applied topically will better absorb into the skin. We offer add-on hyaluronic acid serums to enhance your treatment results and capitalize on your skin’s increased absorption abilities.

These HA serums will nourish and moisturize the skin and increase your skin volume by adding high moisture content to the treatment area, providing an immediate plumping effect that will last long after your treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The best RF microneedling results typically come from a treatment plan that includes several sessions with at least four weeks between each. This treatment schedule can perfect and transform your skin by allowing it to heal between treatments before we once again stimulate collagen production in the target area.

When Will I See the Results?

You can expect some immediate results after your treatment since the device causes an instant contraction of your existing collagen, instantly promoting skin firmness and tightness. The best results, however, won’t be visible until a few weeks after your treatment. It can take the body up to 12 weeks to produce more collagen, so while this treatment may require some patience, the waiting will be well worth it.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The results of a microneedling treatment can last for several months to a year or longer. It all depends on the number of sessions you complete post-treatment and the condition of your skin. When we schedule your initial consultation and meet with you to discuss your desired treatment area, we can give you a better idea of what kind of results to expect and when you can expect them.

Is There Downtime?

There’s no social downtime after a Sylfirm X treatment, but it is important that you follow all of the aftercare instructions so that your skin can heal and you can achieve beautiful results. You’ll need to temporarily avoid anything that increases your body temperature or causes you to sweat, like hot environments and strenuous workouts.

It’s also important that you avoid touching the treatment area and temporarily abstain from using harsh exfoliating products with anti-aging ingredients that could irritate your skin.

Promoting Quick Healing

As your skin heals, you may notice some redness and flaking, which is only temporary. It’s a sign that your skin is replacing older cells with newer, healthier ones. You should also avoid the sun as much as possible, and if you know you will be exposed to it, be sure to wear a quality sunscreen to protect your skin. You’ll receive complete aftercare instructions after your session.

Restore Your Natural Collagen

Collagen and elastin are two proteins essential for younger-looking skin, and because you can’t effectively bottle them and apply them topically, you need to invest in a treatment that will force the body to increase production for real and youthful-looking results. Sylfirm X RF microneedling treatments are the perfect solution for those who want to stimulate collagen production to reverse the aging process. We can give you more details about this treatment and confirm your eligibility at your pre-treatment consultation.
