Discover the Ultimate Revolution in Microneedling

Experience the Future of Skin Rejuvenation with Sylfirm X

The epitome of advanced aesthetic technology, Sylfirm X is the latest development in radio frequency microneedling devices. It is particularly unique for its capacity to emit both continuous waves and short bursts of radiofrequency, allowing us to address a gamut of skin concerns delivering superior results with minimal discomfort and downtime when compared to other devices available on the market.

It is the only radio frequency micro-needling technology approved for safely treating neovascular conditions, including melasma, rosacea, and other challenging skin disorders. With Sylfirm X, unparalleled results for a diverse range of skin improvements are now a treatment session away. 

What does Sylfirm X do differently?

Dr Bong's Expertise

Mastering the art of innovation, Dr Kieren Bong brings to you the revolutionary Sylfirm TIGHT treatment, tailored for utmost skin tightening and firming effects. This treatment was exclusively designed using his deep-rooted wisdom of radiofrequency microneedling.

Dr Bong’s expertise goes beyond the science and machinery; a unique blend of his knowledge and experience sets the Sylfirm TIGHT treatment apart.

In an industry with rising access to Sylfirm X technology, Dr Bong sets a high benchmark with his remarkable craftsmanship. He is the creator of a unique, personalised treatment protocol that makes a monumental difference to the experience and results.

The Sylfirm TIGHT treatment is meticulously crafted, with a careful adjustment of frequency, power, and duration of each thermal exposure. This ensures optimal, uniform thermal temperatures within the skin, delivering maximal effectiveness.

His exceptional treatment protocol, Sylfirm TIGHT, amplifies the natural effects of Sylfirm X technology, providing immediate skin-tightening due to collagen fibre contraction and long-term rejuvenation through natural tissue repair. The results are not just visible but strikingly transformative!

Dr Bong's Superior Sylfirm TIGHT Treatment

Unlike typical Sylfirm treatments demanding 2-3 sessions for visible improvements, Sylfirm TIGHT by Dr. Bong presents notable improvements post the first session itself. The treatment’s effectiveness sprouts in two distinct ways:

  1. Instant visible tightening of skin: An immediate contraction of collagen fibres triggers dramatic skin tightening effects visible after the treatment. This impact further enhances over the subsequent days or weeks.

  2. Long-term rejuvenation: The procedure catalyses collagen and elastin production through the natural tissue repairing process, promising prolonged rejuvenation.

Sylfirm X is our gateway to truly personalising your skin rejuvenation experience by tackling a wide array of skin concerns including:

  • Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Softening acne scars
  • Lifting and firming sagging skin
  • Sharpening the jawline
  • Reducing the appearance of jowl fat
  • Rejuvenating the skin for a smoother, more youthful glow
  • Reducing double chin
  • Softening and enhancing the skin under and over the eye
  • Restoring eyelid tightness
  • Lightening melasma (brown or grey pigmentation patches)
  • Mitigating facial flushing, blushing, and rosacea
  • Treating crepey skin in the neck & décolletage
  • Stimulating hair growth

Sylfirm X TREATMENTS

Unveiling the Science Behind Sylfirm X

Unique in design, Sylfirm X infuses radiofrequency energy with tiny microneedles that channel the energy into deeper skin layers. The process fosters collagen and elastin production, thanks to your dermal fibroblasts’ stimulation, imparting extraordinary skin tightening effects.

In contrast with other microneedling devices solely offering continuous waveform, Sylfirm X features both pulse wave mode (short bursts) and continuous wave mode, making it superior in terms of functionality and efficacy.

Whether for a medium to long-term treatment, the radiofrequency-charged microneedles reenergize your dermal fibroblasts, repair ‘micro-injuries,’ and restore the skin texture and tone, bringing back the youthful vitality.

What Sets Sylfirm X and Dr Bong Apart

Offering a more potent and efficient radiofrequency micro-needling device, Sylfirm X, guided by Dr Bong’s extensive know-how, allows tunable treatments. Adjusting the needle depth and power to the treatment area and desired result, achieving superior results in one treatment has never been this easier.

Besides, Dr  Bong follows patient comfort as a fundamental rule. Hence, most patients grade their discomfort level as low as 0-3 out of 10! This not only underscores his proficiency but also makes Essence Medical an unmatched choice in the field.

Depending on the condition of your skin and desired result, we recommend a course of 2-4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.

During your Sylfirm X session, we will have you laid back comfortably. We will then carefully move the tip of the Sylfirm X handpiece across the designated area(s). Throughout this meticulous process, we will make certain that you remain comfortable, experiencing minimal to no discomfort. After completing the treatment on your specified area(s) of concern, you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately, as there is no downtime required.

The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes, depending on the size and area of treatment. During the procedure, you may feel the handpiece pressing on your skin, and a warm and mild tingling sensation.

No anaesthetic cream required. The differentiation in Dr Bong’s approach extends to maximising patient comfort. His technique significantly reduces discomfort, with most patients reporting minimal pain, rating their discomfort between 0-3 on a scale of 10. This exceptional patient experience further underscores Dr Bong’s skill and sensitivity, distinguishing his practice from others in the field.

Following the treatment, your skin may feel warm and somewhat tight, varying with the treated area and the specific settings used. It’s common for the skin to appear slightly pink for a few hours, resembling a mild sunburn, but you should be able to continue with your daily routine unaffected. If the treatment targets rosacea, you may notice increased redness. Typically, the neck may exhibit more redness compared to the face.

Dr Bong’s exceptional mastery of the radiofrequency microneedling technique is demonstrated through his creation of bespoke treatment protocols (Sylfirm TIGHT, Sylfirm GLOW, Sylfirm EYE, Sylfirm ROSACEA, Sylfirm MELASMA, and Sylfirm HAIR). These protocols leverage the full range of the Sylfirm X’s capabilities, adjusting from very superficial settings at 300 microns to deeper treatments of up to 4mm within a single session. This approach is exclusive to Dr Bong and Essence Medical; it is a sophisticated technique that can yield noticeable results after just ONE treatment, as clinically proven.

For many patients, visible tightening of the skin is immediate, as the collagen fibres contract in response to the microneedles and radiofrequency energy. However, more significant results become apparent as the skin begins to produce new collagen. Most patients observe continual improvements over the subsequent 4-6 weeks. It has been noted that many of our patients experience enhancements that extend beyond the initial 6 weeks, lasting up to 3 months after the treatment.

Skin rejuvenation through RF microneedling leads to a permanent increase in collagen in the dermis, but it’s important to bear in mind that as we age, our body’s collagen production naturally diminishes. Thus, the boost in collagen that we initiate essentially serves to counteract this decline. We recommend that ongoing maintenance treatments be undertaken biannually.

For conditions like age spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation, clinical studies indicate that you may anticipate a reduction in pigmentation of 20-30% following just a single session.

Nonetheless, for more significant outcomes, we typically recommend a series of 2-4 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. It is rare for a patient to achieve their desired results with only one session.

His technique significantly reduces discomfort, with most patients reporting minimal pain, rating their discomfort between 0-3 on a scale of 10. This exceptional patient experience further underscores Dr Bong’s skill and sensitivity, distinguishing his practice from others in the field.

In Dr Bong’s hands, topical anaesthetic cream is not necessary at all.

Sylfirm X has been rigorously tested in over 25 international clinical studies, demonstrating its effectiveness and safety. The majority of patients encounter minimal to no side effects.

It’s common for the skin to appear slightly pink for a few hours, resembling a mild sunburn, but you should be able to continue with your daily routine unaffected. If the treatment targets rosacea, you may notice increased redness. Typically, the neck may exhibit more redness compared to the face.

It is normal to experience a bit of redness and mild swelling; however, there is no bleeding or downtime following the treatment. You may notice a slight pinkness to the skin, which should subside within a few hours. Avoid applying makeup or exercising immediately after the treatment. You can wear makeup the following day and resume your usual daily activities straight away.

The cost of Dr Bong’s exclusive Sylfirm TIGHT treatment varies depending on the area being treated. To receive a precise quote tailored to your needs, a face-to-face consultation with Dr Bong is essential. During this consultation, he will assess your skin and provide a detailed cost estimate.

While the initial prices might seem high, it’s important to consider the value offered by Dr Bong’s extensive expertise in radiofrequency treatments. He utilises more advanced settings and targets varying skin depths for optimal results. Typically, most clinics delegate this type of treatment to beauty therapists who are limited to basic settings. However, at Essence Medical, Dr Bong personally administers the Sylfirm TIGHT treatment, ensuring not just the effectiveness of the procedure but also providing top-tier care and expertise.

Below are the guide prices for treatments on the face and neck:

  • Face & jawline – from £400 per treatment
  • Neck – from £400 per treatment
  • Brow lift – from £400 per treatment

Yes. A face-to-face consultation is necessary for us to assess your skin, discuss the details of the treatment more thoroughly, and establish your suitability. Regrettably, no treatment will be administered during the same visit, as the duration of treatment depends on the area of the face or body being treated and the specific indications for treatment.

We accept cash or the following major credit and debit cards. We do not accept personal cheques.

If you are a new patient, a booking fee will be taken at the point of making your appointment.  Please read our full terms and conditions here.

We respect that your time is valuable, and we appreciate that you understand ours is too. Unfortunately, if appointments are cancelled or rescheduled at short notice, or if you do not attend an appointment, we cannot allocate your appointment slot to someone else; however, we still have overheads and staff salaries to pay. Please read our full terms and conditions here.

Please note for all patients, a £50 fee will be charged if you cancel or reschedule ANY appointment (including appointments which do not require an upfront deposit, such as a ‘check-up’ or review appointment) less than 48 hours before the appointment time. Patients who have pre-purchased a course of treatment will forfeit one of the treatments instead of paying this fee.

Late arrival to your appointment may result in reduced treatment time or the forfeiting of the appointment. We will endeavour to ensure that your appointment runs on time. However, for reasons beyond our control, we may need to cancel or postpone your appointment at short notice. In this unlikely event, we will try to contact you in advance. We do not offer compensation if we cancel or postpone your appointment.
