Agnes RF Microneedling
AGNES RF: Agnes RF utilizes Radio Frequency energy for tissue coagulation and electrothermolysis. Micro-insulated needles penetrate the skin at specific points, distributing radiofrequency energy at precise temperatures to generate a tissue response without damaging the epidermis. This makes microneedling with AGNES RF simple, precise, and effective. It is the first technology of its kind!!
Lower facial contouring: Jowls, double chin, jawlines
Eye bags/Eye wrinkles
ACNE – the destruction of sebaceous glands (96% cure rate)
Treats all skin types
What Is AGNES RF?
Originally developed as a permanent solution to active acne, AGNES RF has been found to also be remarkably effective as a face, jaw, and eye area rejuvenator and ideal for non-surgical face and neck contouring.
Agnes RF is minimally invasive, safe, appropriate for all skin tones, and requires little downtime.
Is AGNES right for me?
AGNES is safe for all skin types. The consent of a parent or guardian is required for patients under the age of 18.
- AGNES is customizable
- It simultaneously removes fat and tightens skin.
- Treatment sessions are short.
- The technology is predictable, precise, and safe.
- The micro-needles are insulated to provide additional protection to surrounding tissue.
How do I prepare for treatment?
No particular preparation is needed other than a complimentary consultation.
However, ask your practitioner about starting Alastin Skincare’s Procedure Enhancement System 14-30 days before your treatment. Pre-treating with this system will clear non-functioning collagen and impurities and prepare your skin for optimal results. And continuing after treatment will minimize downtime and elevate results.
Post-treatment care or downtime?
Many can return immediately to regular activities. Ice may be used to calm any discomfort or sensitivity to the treated area.
If you are treated for deeper lines/wrinkles, or for eye bags, you may experience redness, bruising, or swelling up to 10 days, followed by up to a week of minimal visible side effects. Occasionally, with these deeper treatments, you may be sensitive and have some numbness for up to four weeks.
If you are concerned about the length of downtime, but want the same results, a regimen of lighter treatments can be substituted for one deeper treatment.
Lighter treatments will have far fewer side effects, most which may be concealed with tinted moisturizer or makeup just a few days after treatment.
Our team will be available to provide you with information on care, and to discuss products available to minimize downtime and enhance the results of your treatment.
How long until I see results?
Visible improvements typically begin after three to for weeks and continue to improve over the coming months as skin structure remodeling and new collage synthesis reveal your firmer, smoother skin.
How many treatments will I need and long will results last?
At your consultation, expectations for the number of treatments and how long your results will be discussed. The number of treatments and longevity of results vary for everyone depending on several factors including age, degree of damage, an individual’s skin composition, what condition they are treating, and their goals.
What is the science?
The science behind AGNES is what sets it apart from other micro-needling devices. Each of the micro- needles has an insulated coating which minimizes unnecessary damage to surrounding tissue, shortening recovery time, and adding precision to the targeting of the radiofrequency energy.
AGNES radiofrequency safely targets the desired skin structure to heat the tissue to the exact temperature to destroy and coagulate fat and fatty structures in the skin while simultaneously increasing the production and firming of collagen and elastin, leading to cell turn-over and internal restructuring of the skin, making it firmer and tighter.
