Agnes- Radiofrequency Facial Contouring

WHAT IS AGNES?

Microneedling has long been used for a variety of applications in facial aesthetics including to improve skin quality by stimulating collagen production through the introduction of small punctures at targeted depths in the skin. The Agnes treatment is the latest advancement in microneedling technology and takes this concept one step further by introducing radiofrequency to the microneedling procedure. Originally developed as a cure for patients suffering from acne, the Agnes device allows Dr. Hsieh to deliver heat to fat beneath the skin and non-surgically sculpt the face to the desired aesthetic proportions!

HOW DOES AGNES RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING WORK?

● Specially designed needles are used to target different fat layers beneath the skin including superficial (shallow) fat, mid-level fat, or deep fat by delivering radiofrequency energy in the form of heat!● The radiofrequency energy and the mechanical penetration of the needle stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response stimulating collagen and elastin production and improving the tightness and texture of the skin!● Unlike other radiofrequency microneedling systems, the Agnes devices have nine microneedles which are each micro-insulated, protecting the skin against potential burning during a treatment!● Agnes radiofrequency microneedling can be used to help people suffering from acne by directly targeting and shrinking/eliminating sebaceous glands beneath the skin which reduces acne formation in the treatment area and actually helps to shrink pores!● The radiofrequency energy, when delivered to a therapeutic temperature, melts fat cells making Agnes an ideal non-surgical sculpting and skin tightening tool!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How many treatments are required?

    Most patients see an improvement in their skin after just one Agnes radiofrequency microneedling treatment, however, a series of one to three treatments may be required for optimum results, depending on your area of concern.

  • What does the Agnes treatment feel like?

    The treatment is relatively quick, lasting anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Topical numbing cream is applied with adequate time to take effect beforehand, to ensure minimal discomfort during the treatment. Most patients report feeling a light warm pressure during the treatment.

  • Is there any downtime after an Agnes treatment?

    Since the Agnes treatment is non-surgical, you are free to resume daily activities after your treatment. Most patients report redness and some swelling/bruising in the treatment area for a short period of time after the treatment. All post-procedure care will be discussed in your consultation with Dr. Hsieh as the Agnes device gives her the ability to customize the treatment to your aesthetic concerns! A general rule of thumb is the smaller the treatment area, the less downtime involved.

  • When will I see results?

    Depending on your area of concern, you will see results anywhere from a couple of weeks to six months post-treatment. It will take a little longer to see the complete result in skin wrinkles, eye bags, and fat deposits post-treatment, whereas patients seeking Agnes for acne treatment often see results within a couple of weeks.

  • What can Agnes be used to treat?

    Agnes has safely and successfully been used to treat eye-bags, jowls, sagging skin along the jawline, fat or loose skin beneath the chin, active acne, cheek fullness, and enlarged pores!
