AGNES radiofrequency targets the desired skin structure. It heats the tissue to a temperature that destroys fat and fatty structures in the skin while simultaneously increasing collagen and elastin production. This process leads to cell turn-over and internal reform of the skin, making it firmer and tighter. This minimally invasive and safe device is unique in treating under-eye bags, sculpting the neck and jowl area, and treating cystic acne with little to no downtime. It is also safe to use on all skin tones and requires little downtime.

Agnes RF uses radio frequency to target specific problem areas with a needle. The needle’s depth is designed to target the specific area and has an insulated coating that protects other areas of the skin, which results in less downtime during recovery. When treating under the eye bags, the needle is inserted into the fad pad and the radio frequency energy is delivered to that fat, where it remains permanently. The procedure is minimally invasive and sometimes requires local anesthesia.
The exact treatment will depend upon the area being targeted. However, you can typically expect a numbing cream to be applied to the area about 20 minutes prior to the procedure taking place. There may be minimal discomfort during the procedure as well as minimal pain. For areas that need deeper treatment, a local anesthesia will be used, as well as the numbing cream. For acne treatment, it is recommended that you return to the office in 24 to 48 hours for further treatment, including any further drainage of sebum. The actual treatment consists of inserting a needle into the wrinkle, fat pad, or acne follicle and using the radio frequency machine to trigger the exact number of pulses needed for the particular area being treated.
Agnes is an RF micro-needling devices like others in the market regarding energy utilization. However, Agnes is the only RF device to produce stronger energy than other skin tissue devices from inducing new collagen production. Further, Agnes is the only RF device utilizing a single pin or three pin needle as an application electrode which partially insulated to protect the epidermis or other tissues from the thermal burn.
It is possible to receive maximum benefit from one treatment, but you can’t treat everything in a single treatment. For this reason, you may need two or more treatments to get the best results. Treatments are scheduled three to six months after your first treatment for wrinkles or eye bags. For acne, treatment is scheduled six weeks after your initial treatment.
