What is microneedling with radiofrequency?
Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) is the best and most advanced technology to offer non-surgical skin tightening on the face and body. RF microneedling with Sylfirm X uses 24 gold-plated microneedles to create controlled micro-injury to the skin. At the same time, radiofrequency (RF) is applied to the skin using heat to create thermal injury. The controlled micro-injuries in conjunction with heat from the radiofrequency tells your body to restore the skin with healthy amounts of collagen, tightening and firming the skin. It. takes four to six weeks after each treatment to start seeing the results since RF microneedling remodels collagen over this period of time (think of a wound healing which takes several weeks to completely heal). The controlled injury from the microneedles and radiofrequency stimulate new skin growth, stronger skin, and treats common issues like acne scars, eyelid hooding, and wrinkles. The best part is how minimally invasive it is for such amazing results. Although your skin after the treatment appears the same, underneath within the dermis it is working to replace lost collagen and establish firmer, tighter skin. Since we lose 1% to 2% of collagen every year from the age of 21, we recommend starting with a series of three to six treatments to start, and three treatments annually for ongoing maintenance. As always, wearing sunscreen and using antioxidants to protect and repair your skin is crucial to the longevity of your results.

Sylfirm X RF microneedling in Toronto is able to penetrate the skin with microelectrodes that creates thermal energy within the dermis without damaging the tissue. The Sylfirm X robotic system applies a precise level of energy with each pass to ensure the RF microneedling treats the right depth of skin for optimal collagen growth. By covering several dermal layers with continuous and pulsed waves of radiofrequency, the best RF microneedling Toronto treatments are more effective and comfortable for patients.

How does microneedling with radiofrequency work?
Radiofrequency RF Microneedling with Sylfirm X is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that restores collagen and improves the appearance of the skin using a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency heat to tighten the skin. Sylfirm X uses gold plated needles that gently create micro-injuries and apply radiofrequency wavelengths deep into the skin as a way to safely introduce heat into the skin. The micro-injuries and heat stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response, which in turn creates large amounts of collagen for better, firmer skin. One of our favourite treatments is the non-surgical blepharoplasty – RF microneedling for eyelid hooding produces amazing results with three to six treatments, to avoid you having to go under the knife. The benefit of microneedling with radiofrequency is the amazing results as it treats multiple concerns at once with very little discomfort and downtime.

Does microneedling with radiofrequency hurt?
Contrary to popular belief, RF microneedling facials do not hurt. One of the many reasons we love Sylfirm X is its advanced technology. Sylfirm X uses a slow robotic arm during your microneedling facial that allows for optimal comfort during your treatment. As part of every RF microneedling facial, we apply a potent topical numbing cream beforehand. For the majority of your treatment, you will not feel any discomfort. The session takes 45 minutes to 60 minutes including the initial numbing. The most common effect you will notice during your treatment is pink skin which is to be expected and is exactly what we want to see. RF skin tightening can be used on the body as well, where we can treat sagging skin to the arms, knee caps, and stomach. Research shows that RF skin tightening and microneedling facials are an excellent way to reduce signs of aging by tightening and firming the skin.
How many microneedling with Radiofrequency sessions do you need?
RF microneedling facials require a minimum of three to six treatments initially, a minimum of one month apart. Each year, we lose collagen in our skin due to aging, sun damage, and environmental effects. As such, we recommend three treatments a year for maintenance, to restore your skin’s collagen and prevent advanced signs of aging. RF microneedling gives you progressive results even three months after your treatments – this is because your body’s natural wound healing mechanisms are stimulated to create collagen over several weeks to months after your treatments. With any collagen induction therapy, we want to always wear sunscreen regularly, and use antioxidants to protect and repair the collagen in our skin. Ultimately, having a comprehensive skin care routine is important to the longevity of your RF microneedling treatments.
What to do after microneedling with radiofrequency?
One of the many benefits of radiofrequency microneedling is the minimal downtime post-treatment. After your microneedling radiofrequency facial, your skin will appear immediately pink (think mild and painless sunburn) for six hours. Within this time, we recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and exercise as we don’t want sweat or the sun to disrupt your wound healing process. RF microneedling is different from the microneedling “Vampire Facial” with SkinPen. RF microneedling heals much faster with less downtime, and can be done in the summertime with general sun protection. We recommend avoiding any actives in your skincare, including acids (vitamin C, glycolic acid, lactic acid, etc.), retinol and retinoids, and ensuring you wear sunscreen regularly along with a hat. All of these measures ensure your wound healing process can remain optimal to get the most collagen out of your treatment.
How much does microneedling with radiofrequency cost?
Pricing varies per area, and per treatment. On average,the cost for each session ranges between $799 to $999 per treatment, with > 10% off for packages of three to six treatments. The price depends on the area(s) being treated, and the number of treatments required. Since the cost varies with RF microneedling, we recommend scheduling a free consultation to explore your goals. We are always happy to discuss your options with you.
Is microneedling with radiofrequency safe?
Microneedling with radiofrequency skin tightening is very safe with mild, temporary downtime. We begin each treatment session with a consultation and medical history questionnaire. If you have a history of cold sores, it is important for us to know so we can treat you for this in advance of any flare ups. Sylfirm X RF microneedling is a great way to treat various signs of aging with minimal risk and downtime. RF microneedling is colourblind and, unlike lasers, microneedling with radiofrequency can be used on all skin types. Additionally, the RF microneedling facial with Sylfirm X allows us to treat the skin at specific depths and specific target areas for a safe and tailored treatment to your skin. For your protection, we use a combination antiseptic to ensure your skin remains clean prior to, during, and after your treatment, and provide you with iS Clinical’s SHEALD Recover Balm to stimulate faster skin healing after your treatment.
Is microneedling with radiofrequency painful?
Microneedling with radiofrequency using Sylfirm X is not painful. Other devices can be much more uncomfortable, and one of the many reasons we offer Sylfirm X is because of its gentle robotic application of radiofrequency to targeted depths and areas of your skin. Additionally, we use a topical numbing product prior to your treatment that is strong and effective at reducing discomfort so you remain comfortable during your microneedling facial. Most times, you won’t even feel the radiofrequency application into the skin. The treatment is very tolerable and occasionally feels similar to the discomfort of plucking a thick hair. Given the amazing results we see with this treatment, there is really little discomfort and downtime associated with Sylfirm X.
Is microneedling good for acne?
RF microneedling is a superior treatment for managing acne scarring. If you’re struggling with acne scars, RF microneedling is the perfect acne scar treatment in Toronto. One reason why acne scars exist is because abnormal collagen adhesions pull and traper the surface of the skin to appear “pitted” on the outside. RF microneedling treatments are extremely effective at breaking up these collagen adhesions underneath pitted acne scars and effectively remodels the scars by filling them in with new, healthy collagen. We see a great reduction in the appearance of acne scars with a series of RF microneedling treatments. Additionally, we discuss combination therapy with you to optimally reduce the visibility of acne scars, including acne scar subcision and topical creams break up abnormal collagen and stimulate health collagen.
Is microneedling with radiofrequency permanent?
Yes and no, since the longevity of RF microneedling depends on various factors including skin care and sun protection, number of treatments received, age and health, environmental factors, and areas treated. Microneedling with radiofrequency involves stimulating large amounts of healthy collagen to improve skin laxity and signs of aging. To optimize the most collagen from each treatment, we recommend a healthy diet and lifestyle, hydrolyzed collagen powder for supplementation, avoiding sun exposure, and using collagen-stimulating skin care products. The collagen produced with each treatment lasts anywhere from two to five years, depending on lifestyle factors, genetics, and environmental factors. For your utmost longevity of the new healthy collagen can be prolonged with use of regular sunscreen, antioxidants, and retinol.
