Do you trust the bucket shop that promotes painless, micro-needling therapy that induces collagen production without downtime?”

Microneedling has been around for a long time in aesthetic treatments . More commonly known as Collagen Induction Therapy, it won the hearts of men and women troubled by skin conditions such as acne, skin laxity, and bad scarring. 

Many, who have not learned the benefits of Sylfirm therapy, may opt for micro-needling. However, it may not always be done by a trained healthcare professional. Improper  administration of microneedling can cause problems such as Hepatitis B, C, and HIV. 

Today, we are going to compare the following between Sylfirm and traditional Microneedling therapies. 

  • Downtime
  • Experience 
  • Collagen production 
  • Materials used 



Which therapy has less downtime ,pain, redness, and bleeding?

In terms of downtime, Sylfirm has proven itself a winner. It has the broadest range of needle size, including 0.3 to 0.4mm, that can deeply penetrate your skin without causing pain and bleeding 

Unlike traditional rollers that drag on the skin surface Sylfirm accomplishes it by simple stamping withdrawing its micro needles before moving on to the next area

Furthermore, a topical anaesthetic is applied to make the treatment more comfortable 


Does it make a difference if it is administered by a healthcare professional or beautician or by yourself at home 

First-timers or untrained staff, introducing micro-needles into the dermal layers is not advisable as they may not be aware of infection control. 

Sylfirm works by causing controlled micro-injuries that allow the skin to regenerate due to increased collagen production for skin repair.

Self- or non-medically-administered microneedling techniques can cause side effects such as pain, redness, swelling, and even infections. In the clinic, you will be given specific aftercare instructions and follow-up appointments to track your progress 

Collagen production

Is there  a difference between radiofrequency waves administered through needles vs. having normal radio frequency( needleless)

The answer is yes. 

Sylfirm is the first multi-treatment device to solve multiple skin woes using radio-frequency waves transmitted via the microneedles. By targeting the root cause of significant skin conditions like over-proliferated vessels, it is able to stabilise skin layers and restructure the blood vessels under your skin by inducing collagen production. As a result, it has proven effective in treating wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, Rosacea, and Melasma. Though it delivers results for some consumers, traditional micro-needling devices efficacy varies among individuals. In addition, it may not be able to address complicated skin conditions due to the lack of targeted treatment options that include using radio-frequency waves for skin restructuring. 

Materials used

Sylfirm uses hypoallergenic metals, while some micro-needling rollers don’t.

Using 24-K gold-plated needles, Sylfirm allowed smoother penetration through the skin, thereby minimising trauma and the risk of pigmentary changes with non-insulated needles as used in traditional micro-needling devices. In addition, metals that are safe to introduce into the dermal layers of the skin reduce risks of allergic reactions that can cause scarring, swelling, redness, breakouts, and even anaphylaxis–a life-threatening condition caused by allergies to certain metals. Sylfirm allows its users to have peace of mind when treating stubborn skin conditions caused by pigmentary changes in the skin and ageing, making it a highly requested procedure worldwide in aesthetic medicine.
