What is AGNES RF?
AGNES RF is a cosmetic breakthrough. It is radio frequency MACRO needling as opposed to Scarlet, which is radio frequency MICRO needling. Using a needle with insulated coating, we can target a very specific area without harming adjacent tissue.
What can AGNES do?
It can melt fat and tighten the skin in the neck and jowl area. It can melt eye bags without real surgery. It treats cystic acne by destroying the sebaceous gland, which causes acne and blackheads. It can be used to non-surgically contour the entire face.
What is the treatment like?
The exact treatment depends on the area being treated. However, either topical numbing cream or an injection of local anesthetic will be used. A needle will be inserted into the wrinkle, fat pad or acne follicle and radio frequency energy will be precise.
How many treatments are necessary?
The number of treatments and recovery time are dependent on what systems we use in conjunction with Agnes. With Agnes alone, often two to three treatments are necessary.
We like to do Scarlet microneedling at the same time as the Agnes so that we can reach all levels of the skin with necessary tightening. We find that topically applied live stem cells (cryopreserved at all times in our office) not only speed recovery, but tremendously enhance the result.
When will I see results?
It is not uncommon for the treated area to look worse during the recovery time. This is normal. You see remarkable differences over weeks and months as new collagen deposits and remolds the skin. Again, by adding stem cells and Scarlet, we can substantially speed recovery time and modeling.
