Tired of looking tired?
Eyebags make you look tired and older than you really are. Have you tried all sorts of expensive eye creams on the market but have not had any success? Have you tried age-old remedies of cutting back on salt, sleeping more, using tea bags and cold spoons, yet have not seen any prominent results?
AGNES RF is used to reduce fat and tighten the skin precisely. AGNES is one of the first non-surgical treatment of eyelid bags and is also used to treat the fat and loose skin of the jowls and along and under the jaw. In our practice it has largely replaced Kybella.
AGNES represents a new approach to facial contouring without surgery. The innovative patented needle system in single or triple patterns delivers energy to the skin or fat to produce heat. This focused heat reduces unwanted fat and contracts the skin. AGNES RF can be used in patients with skin of any color with minimal downtime.
What can AGNES RF Treat?
We use AGNES RF to treat the fat and skin of the chin, cheek, jawline, lower eyelid bags and skin, and upper eyelid skin. Work is progressing on treating smaller body areas like the area above the knees. Is AGNES performed under local anesthesia? Patients are made comfortable with topical and local anesthesia.
How is the downtime?
There is minimal downtime- some swelling, minimal bruising that may last several days. Mineral makeup is ok to use after a day or two. When do I see results? Usually, some results are seen shortly after the first treatment. These continue to improve for eight weeks. Repeat treatments may be necessary.
Who can be treated?
Suitable candidates with any skin type, including dark skin may be treated. Results may vary. How does AGNES RF Microneedling Work? Specially designed/shaped microneedles are used to target deep, medium or superficial fat. The heat produced below the surface stimulates collagen and tightens the skin based on the needle used. This localized injury heals very quickly, but the skin surface remains intact.
What to expect during and after an AGNES Treatment
Topical numbing cream is applied first; then areas to be treated are marked and local anesthetic is placed. There is minimal discomfort during the treatment. Redness after the treatment may persist for 24-48 hours, though many patients may have little or no reaction. Swelling and minimal bruising of treated areas may last for a few days to a week. Improvement is seen after one treatment, but a series of 1-3 treatments may be needed (depending on the amount of volume/contouring needed).
