SylfirmX May Be One of the Best Treatments for Melasma On the Market
There has been a steady increase in requests for in-office skin treatments in the last three years, what with selfies and the Zoom Boom's continued emphasis on close-up video conferences. Beyond individual laser, radiofrequency, and microneedling sessions to address skin texture, laxity, tone, and plumpness, patients are becoming savvy to more efficient combined technologies that incorporate multiple treatments into single devices. Radiofrequency microneedling — which offers the collagen-inducing and re-texturizing effects of microneedling, along with the skin-tightening effects of radiofrequency heat — has become one of the buzziest and most-requested combined treatments available.
Even as popular radiofrequency microneedling devices like Morpheus8 develop veritable fan followings, they are not considered suitable for all skin conditions. Those with melasma, for instance, run the risk of exacerbating unwanted pigment following aggressive, heat-based treatments. Others find that the degree of painfulness and downtime is simply not viable with their schedules in spite of the rejuvenating effects that can come from a series of treatments.
The latest radiofrequency microneedling device to launch Stateside, Sylfirm X, claims to remedy these concerns. Yet skeptics consider all of these devices to be virtually the same, so I decided to see for myself.
