At Eeva Medical Aesthetic Clinic, our Eeva Acne Scar Solutions designed by our doctors utilises medical technology as tools in a comprehensive protocol to deliver results for our patients seeking acne scar removal. In most cases, for extensive areas of scars of various types (e.g. ice pick scars, box scars, rolling scars), a holistic program harnessing different medical technology delivers superior results.
Sylfirm X is one of the medical devices our doctors use in Eeva Acne Scar Solutions protocols. In this article, we share how Sylfirm X is effectively utilised to benefit patients in the acne scar treatments in Singapore.
What is Sylfirm X?
It integrates several radio frequency (RF) wave ranges into 8 unique constant and burst wave modalities, allowing it to precisely interact with aberrant vasculature and cells to repair vascular abnormalities, scars, and skin discolouration while regaining the health of the skin.
Sylfirm X operates delicately on the epidermis owing to its tiny probes. Additionally, it functions at three distinct clinical shallowness. As a result, it produces more collagen in the skin’s greater depths whilst improving the appearance of the skin’s surface layers.
Types of acne scars
A scar that is concave and recovers underneath the standard stratum of epidermis is referred to as an atrophic scar. When the epidermis fails to repair cells, atrophic scars develop. It causes uneven tissue damage and scarring as a byproduct. Chickenpox or serious breakouts are common causes of atrophic scars. Clearing away moles can also potentially cause them to appear.
It can manifest in these forms:
- Rolling scars – These scars have sweeping cavities and slanting corners that give the skin a bumpy appearance
- Boxcar scars – Often appearing on the lower cheeks and jaw, indentations with a box-like structure with distinct fringes develop as a result of severe breakouts
- Icepick scars – Typically located on the face, they are exceedingly difficult to cure since they are profound, thin, and extend into the layer of the skin
Hypertrophic and keloid scars, in contrast to atrophic scars, develop as elevated bulges of damaged scar in which the blemishes used to be. When damaged tissue accumulates, possibly from prior breakout patches, this occurs.
The extent of the acne that created the hypertrophic scars is identical. On the other hand, Keloid scars extend outside the edges of the initial position and leave a scar that is greater than the breakouts that first produced them.
These scars are much more prevalent on the shoulders, back, chest, and jawline. The likelihood of this form of scarring occurring is higher in individuals with darker complexions.
When the epidermis is impacted by serious acne or if you’ve squeezed at the pimples, discolouration might happen. It frequently leads to a darkened or pigmented portion of the skin after the acne has cleared. With proper protection from the sun, this won’t turn into a scar and will go away by itself. Darker skinned individuals and acne pickers are much more susceptible to get such discoloration.
Sylfirm X is an excellent choice of medical technology to target all these kinds of acne scars in extensive areas of the face (e.g. cheeks, temples, forehead, nose).
Features of Sylfirm X technology for acne scar treatment
The continuous wave (CW) mode
Throughout a predetermined amount of time,The epidermal cells along the microneedles coagulate effectively as a result of the ongoing application of RF waves. Epidermis cells reach a temperature exceeding 60 °C. As a result of cell protein degradation, the epidermis is induced to begin epidermal restructuring. This function is not available in the previous version of the Sylfirm technique. Therefore, the CW feature of Sylfirm X is ideal for uplifting, scar repair, and skin rejuvenation. Thus, promoting faster and enhanced results for acne scar treatment in Singapore.
Lighten Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
Sylfirm X penetrates the upper layer of the skin, in which older cells and type 3 proteins are located. Enhancing the suppleness and moisture of the skin requires type 3 collagen. By focusing on this skin layer depth, it can reinforce skin layers, alleviate pigmented skin, brought on by age, and optimise the benefits of skin regeneration.
Sylfirm X has a low downtime of 1-3 days and delivers generally good results for most patients.
The tiny needles used in Sylfirm X allow for less painful and more comfortable therapy delivery. Most of the time, this practice causes no pain. This is also true since, in order to make the procedure comfortable, an anaesthetic cream is utilised prior.
