Agnes RF Treatment | Deep Skin Repair and Rejuvenation

Agnes RF Treatment for Facial Skin Problems

TL;DR 

  • Agnes RF is a minimally invasive, microneedling radiofrequency (RF) procedure prized for treating deeper dermal conditions.
  • It is especially useful for conditions like acne, syringoma and sebaceous hyperplasia.
  • Its ability to deliver high and concentrated energy to deeper layers safely allows it to target and reduce fats effectively, achieving good eyebags and double chin reduction results.
  • Agnes RF is also used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
  • It is a safe lunchtime treatment that significantly improves your skin quality.

What is Agnes RF?

Agnes RF is a minimally invasive treatment that utilises radiofrequency and microneedling to treat acne, improve eyebags and remove common skin lesions like syringoma and more. 

The procedure efficiently administers high-energy treatment in a precise and targeted manner to manage dermal (deeper) conditions and tackle the root causes.

It utilises two types of technologies to deliver results:

  • Radiofrequency (RF) energy, which destroys clogged pores or triggers coagulation and breakdown of fatty tissues while simultaneously stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Agnes RF comes with its own unique square waveform RF system, which allows heat energy to be delivered gently.
  • Microneedling, which distributes RF heat in a targeted and effective manner. The insulation on the microneedles protects the skin from burns and minimizes downtime.

Agnes RF can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including:

  • Acne
  • Skin lesions such as syringoma and sebaceous hyperplasia
  • Double chin
  • Eye bags
  • Eye wrinkles

Agnes RF for Acne

Agnes RF Treatment for Acne Problems

When used for treating acne, Agnes RF uses a technique called “Selective Sebaceous Gland Destruction.” 

This method specifically targets overactive acne-causing sebaceous glands and destroys them without damaging the surrounding areas and surface of the skin. The selective destruction of sebaceous glands prevents acne recurrence.

Agnes RF is a reliable option for different kinds of persistent acne and its underlying causes, such as:

  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Cystic acne
  • Nodular acne
  • Papules and pustules
  • Pimples

By successfully removing the overproducing sebaceous glands, the instances of developing acne is greatly reduced. 

Here are other benefits that you can gain from treating acne with Agnes RF:

  • Leaves the surrounding skin damage free from damage or injury
  • Avoids side effects from oral acne medications
  • Firmer skin
  • Minimal time needed for recovery
  • Minimises pore size
  • Quick and safe procedure
  • Suitable for most skin types

After treatment, the treatment area may experience the following:

  • Minor swelling
  • Reddish discolouration
  • Scab formation

These are expected side effects and should subside within 1-2 weeks under normal circumstances.

As part of our protocol, we may perform an extraction before the actual Agnes RF treatment, and post-treatment clearing.

Three to four sessions of Agnes RF are recommended to achieve its full effects. Improvements in your skin can be observed one month following your initial treatment and will continue over time following the succeeding sessions. Optimum results are noticeable a few months after the treatments. 

Agnes RF for Syringoma

Agnes RF Treatment for Syringoma

Syringomas are non-contagious, harmless growths that are usually found in small clusters on the eyelids, but they can also develop in other parts of the body like the armpits, chest, face and genitals. 

Syringomas develop mainly because of cell overgrowth in the sweat ducts. They may also multiply due to several factors that cause the sweat glands to overwork resulting in cell overgrowth:

  • Changes in genes
  • Exercise
  • High temperatures
  • Stress
  • Underlying medical condition

Agnes RF is a great choice for removing syringomas due to its ability to target deep oil glands, preventing recurrence.

How it works:

  • Radio frequency energy is distributed through the microneedles in controlled pulse length into the overgrowth of cells in the sweat glands.
  • The RF heat from the needles ‘coagulates’ the sweat glands while safeguarding the epidermis.

Here are the other benefits that you can get on top of eyes that appear brighter and younger:

  • Leaves no scar
  • Instant removal
  • No downtime needed
  • No scabs formed
  • Smoother skin
  • Suitable for any skin tone

The frequency of Agnes RF treatments for syringoma removal may differ per person. You can expect to see visible improvements after one session. 

Agnes RF for Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a skin condition associated with bumps on the skin that form due to excess sebum in the sebaceous glands.

Sebaceous hyperplasia occurs the most among babies and aging individuals. They can form in these areas of the body:

  • Cheeks
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Forehead
  • Nose

How it works: 

  • Radio frequency energy is distributed through the microneedles in controlled pulse length into the sebaceous glands.
  • The RF heat from the needles destroys the sebaceous glands.

Benefits:

  • Leaves no scar
  • Instant removal
  • No downtime needed
  • No scabs formed
  • Smoother skin
  • Suitable for any skin tone

Is Agnes RF painful?

Local or topical anaesthetic is applied to a treatment area, so patients hardly feel any discomfort or pain during the Agnes RF procedure. You may feel minor pricking and warm sensations as the microneedles penetrate the skin, but this should be tolerable.

FAQ

Agnes RF is safe and has received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The device is equipped with a system that checks and ensures the quality of the micro-insulated needles used.

Yes, Agnes RF can be safely combined with other aesthetic treatments to get even better results for your skin. Your doctor can provide recommendations for the best treatments that go with Agnes RF.

Agnes RF treats a wide range of skin conditions, including acne, blackheads, saggy skin and wrinkles. It is particularly helpful for thickening the area under the eyes to correct eye bags and fine lines and wrinkles around the jowl area.

Agnes is fast, minimally invasive and offers noticeable, lasting results without scars and minimal downtime.

Acne, comedones, blackheads and syringomas: Visible improvements can be seen within a few weeks. Full benefits, including complete tissue remodeling, may take up to 6 months.

Deep wrinkles and eye bags: Initially, the treated area may look worse for 1-2 weeks post-procedure, which is normal. Noticeable benefits emerge over several months as collagen forms and skin remodels. Eye bag treatments take 2-6 months for fat cells to be naturally removed by the body’s macrophages.

Acne, acne scars, syringomas, blackheads: Mild redness for 1-3 days, coverable with makeup. Please note that for acne treatment, there may be some discharge 1-3 days after the procedure. This is a normal part of the healing process, and we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal recovery.

Deep lines, eye bags: 7-10 days of swelling, redness, and bruising: Some numbness or hypersensitivity may last up to 4 weeks. Ice packs and prescribed medication can help reduce discomfort.

Pre-treatment: 

  • Avoid blood thinners (e.g. aspirin, NSAIDs) one week before treatment, subject to approval from your prescribing doctor.
  • Avoid chemical peels 1 week prior.
  • Avoid laser treatment 2-3 weeks before.
  • Refrain from using Retin A or retinoids 1 week before treatment.

Post-treatment:

  • Moisturise adequately
  • Apply sunscreen

One session takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your condition. 

Small white patches or bumps, known as “collagen balls,” may appear in the treated area often around the eyes or jowls. They can be mistaken for pimples or milia. These bumps may not be aesthetically pleasing but they are a good sign of skin rejuvenation. They are temporary and typically dissipate within a few days. Massaging the area frequently throughout the day can help speed up their resolution. 

While you may notice improvements from one session, for most people, two to three sessions of Agnes RF may reap more optimum results. For active acne, additional treatments may be needed six weeks to six months after the initial session. Results vary between individuals.
