Radiofrequency Microneedling with the AGNES is used to precisely reduce fat, tighten the skin and treat acne or enlarged pores. The AGNES is a new approach to facial contouring without surgery. The precision single/triple needle system delivers energy to the skin or fat to produce heat. Focused heat reduces unwanted fat and contracts the skin. The targeted energy can treat the skin regardless of skin color type. Patients see improvement in eye bags, fatty jowl/neck/chin, tightening, fine lines, acne, pore size, with minimal downtime. We now have a tool that we can sculpt and reduce volume where we need to.

How AGNES RF Microneedling Works
Specially designed/shaped microneedles are used to target deep, medium or superficial fat. The heat produced stimulates collagen and tightens based on the depth of energy delivered below the surface. The energy causes a localized injury that heals very quickly and keeps the surface intact. Because of the precise control of the energy delivery, there is improvement seen with minimal to no downtime and the procedure is safe for most patients. This energy can be delivered to enlarged pores or the sebaceous glands that cause acne. The heat shrinks or destroys the sebaceous gland, leading to smaller pores and reduced acne. We can improve the fat accumulation around the eyes and define the jawline/chin. This is a non surgical sculpting tool.
What to expect
Topical numbing cream is applied before your treatment. Areas to be treated are marked and numbed with anesthetic. There is minimal discomfort during the treatment. Patients will have some redness after the treatment that may persist for 24-48 hours, although many patients have minimal discoloration as soon as 3 hours after the treatment. Swelling and minimal bruising of treated areas is normal for a few days up to a week. The smaller the treatment area, the easier to downtime. Improvement is seen after one treatment, but a series of 1-3 treatments may be needed (depending on the amount of volume/contouring needed).
