Melasma on the other hand, while not caused by the sun, is brought on by hormonal changes in your body, such as when you have been on contraceptives for a long time, or when you’re pregnant or even going through menopause.

What they both share in common though is that pigmentation and melasma can be frustratingly challenging to treat.

There is however a new treatment available to treat melasma and pigmentation safely, painlessly and effectively. The new generation SylfirmX is the world’s first and only FDA-registered Pulse Wave and Continuous Wave Radiofrequency device to effectively treat pigmentation and melasma.

How does SylfirmX work?

An electromagnetic field of energy is created which treats the abnormal vessels responsible for causing skin discoloration, using gold microneedles. The inbuilt robotic system allows this treatment to be highly precise ensuring that the desired depth is reached.

The result is a treatment that is highly effective and safe, without causing any damage to the skin tissue.

What is the treatment like?

Each treatment session is approximately 60 minutes. This includes time for the therapist to prepare the skin, by first cleansing it and then applying a layer of numbing cream. This makes the treatment much more comfortable for the patient.

During the treatment, you may feel tiny pin-prick sensations all over the face but nothing painful or uncomfortable.

Is this treatment suitable for everyone?
