What is AGNES?
AGNES is a minimally-invasive radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device. What’s unique about the treatment is that the handpiece features precise, micro-insulated needles which help beneficial RF energy penetrate the skin. Needles of different lengths and configurations allow our staff to customize the treatment based on your unique needs.
RF is a safe form of energy that can improve cosmetic concerns by gently bulk heating the skin. This heat increases the production of collagen and elastin, restructures the way that collagen sits in the skin, and encourages cell turnover. The result is firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
The benefits of AGNES include that it:
- Is appropriate for all skin tones and types
- Is customizable
- Involves short treatment sessions
- Can treat a wide range of skin concerns
- Uses safe and predictable technology
- Offers unmatched precision
- Involves minimal to no downtime
What Conditions Can AGNES Treat?
The AGNES device was initially created to treat stubborn under eye bags often caused by aging or genetics. Over time, you lose collagen and elastin and the structure around your eyes becomes weak. Thankfully, you can banish under eye bags with the AGNES. Unlike now, only surgery could remove under-eye fat pads.
This state-of-art device can now be used to treat acne, a chronic inflammatory skin issue. While there are countless acne treatments on the market, few prevent the recurrence of acne after a session.
AGNES can be used to selectively destroy sebaceous glands. These glands secrete sebum which, when combined with debris, leads to clogged pores and pimples. While you have thousands of sebaceous glands per square inch of skin, destroying a select number of them with AGNES can eliminate current acne and prevent future acne in the treated areas.
However, AGNES is not simply an acne treatment. It is a versatile device that can improve a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Puffy lower eyelid pads
- Enlarged pores
- Undereye bags
- Sagging skin
- Uneven skin texture
