SylfirmX is the world’s first FDA-approved microneedling radiofrequency device with both continuous wave and ultrapulse technology. This emerging dual wave RF device increases the production of collagen and elastin in a designated area. In addition to skin tightening, it also treats pigment, melasma, redness and blood vessels.

How It Works

Unlike other conventional RF microneedling devices, SylfirmX delivers heat in a controlled way the entire length of the needle, in a tear drop shape to maximize thermal effect, minimize epidermal damage, and make the treatment more comfortable for patients. It’s unique ultra pulse mode also allows treatment of blood vessels and Melasma.

What to Expect After Treatment

Patients should expect to see significant results after the first treatment, but best results are seen with a series of three SylfirmX treatments. Redness, and little grid marks on the face are commonly seen following the procedure for a few days. The treatment requires little downtime, so patients can participate in usual daily activities.

Deka Tetra CO2 with “CoolPeel”

Deka Tetra CO2 is the latest and most advanced C02 laser treatment. It helps to rejuvenate skin without the downtime associated with more traditional lasers. It is used to improve fine lines, deep wrinkles, aging spots, sun damage and more.

How It Works

The device removes damaged skin to reveal younger and healthier skin. The Tetra C02 with “CoolPeel” delivers high energy in extremely short pulses targeting the superficial layer of skin tissue. This advanced technology helps prevent damage to the surrounding skin that other laser treatments might create.

What to Expect After Treatment

Patients can expect minimal downtime after a Tetra CO2 with “CoolPeel” treatment. Their skin may feel dry and scaly and look a little red in color (resembling a sunburn) as it heals. Dr. Kingsley can also perform a more aggressive treatment which results in redness and swelling for about a week. It’s important to keep the skin hydrated during the healing process.

  • Why does Dr. Kingsley prefer a fractionated CO2 laser over other fractionated devices like Fraxel, Moxi and Halo?
    After years of using both types of devices on her patients, Dr. Kingsley has seen superior results from the CO2 devices when compared to the others. She can tailor her fractionated CO2 treatments to allow for better tightening, smoothing and sun damage removal. She also finds CO2 treatments are gentler on the skin when performed correctly, so patients see better results with less downtime and less potential side effects.

MK Glow with Sylfirm X + “CoolPeel”

The ultimate treatment to tighten skin, smooth texture, reduce scars, as well as remove sun spots and sun damaged cells.

How It Works

Dr. Kingsley has developed the perfect treatment combination to take 5-10 years off your skin. It is a series of three treatments (SylfirmX followed by CoolPeel in the same treatment session), one month apart.


The Sofwave™ Simple Solution

From the founders of the aesthetic industry, Sofwave™ Medical brings a novel approach to skin tightening using SUPERB™ Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology.

Sofwave™’s breakthrough technology delivers a new standard of care to aesthetic treatments, providing safe aesthetic treatments for patients.

How It Works

The depth for treating wrinkles is 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam SUPERB™ technology generates heat at this exact depth in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling mechanism Sofcool ™ that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning.

The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neo-collagenases, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
