RF Gold Microneedling Treatment in Singapore - Price, Cost & FAQs

What is RF Gold Microneedling?

Developed in Silicon Valley, U.S., RF Gold Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment in Singapore that uses Selective Electro Thermolysis with Very Short Pulse Radio Frequency (RF) Technology to treat acne, pores, saggy skin and rosacea.

This emerging Dual Wave Microneedling Radiofrequency Device has an Xceptional penetration depth from 300μm to 4mm. At this depth, RF Gold Microneedling is able to target up to the critical skin basal layer and create precise thermal coagulation for not only Skin Rejuvenation, but also for the treatment of various dermal skin conditions such as Wrinkles & Fine Lines, Acne, Acne Scars and even tighten Large Open Pores.

RF Gold Microneedling is also clinically proven to treat neovascularities such as Melasma and Rosacea. This is all thanks to the innovation of the RP (repeated ultra-short pulse).

Examples of RF Gold Microneedling devices include Sylfirm X, Morpheus 8 and Secret RF.

What makes RF Gold Microneedling so effective?

During penetration, energy will be released into the device (Sylfirm X, Morpheus 8, Secret RF) at 2MHz into the 300-micron gold microneedles. With each penetration, the gold microneedles* remain in the skin for the optimal time required to repair and rejuvenate, before any thermal damage can occur.

*Sylfirm X is the only microneedling device that contains gold needles.

The RP (repeated ultra-short pulse) micro-needling technology also comes into play by making it such that the device reacts to ONLY abnormal blood vessels and tissues. This way, we can selectively treat increased pigmentation and vascular lesions.

*If you are looking at RF Gold Microneedling to treat neovascularities and melasma, you may look out for Sylfirm X. 

Understanding the different wave modes

RF Gold Microneedling’s Continuous Wave Mode stimulates collagen production which in turn can bring about a wound healing process and dermal remodelling, together with the skin rejuvenation, tightening and lifting effects.

Together with the Pulsed Wave Mode and the Na Effect, RF Gold Microneedling (Sylfirm X, Morpheus 8, Secret RF) has been clinically and technologically proven to give effective results in all its indications.

How does RF Gold Microneedling (e.g. Sylfirm X, Morpheus 8, Secret RF) work?

01 Lots of Pigmentary and Vascular Lesions noticeable within the different skin layers can be noticed before treatment.

02 After 300 micron gold microneedles are inserted into the skin, therapeutic electromagnetic fields are formed within the layers. Na effects can also be observed.

03 After Treatment, Fundamental Skin Regeneration happens due to Selective Regional Regeneration Radie Repeated Pulse.
