The Agnes RF
The Agnes RF is a revolutionary device that can sculpt the neck and jowls, treat under eye bags and syringomas, treat acne and enlarged pores, and minimize sweating in the armpits using just topical and local anesthesia. There is no other device that can offer these long lasting results of tightening skin and removing fat from the face and neck without the side effects and downtime of a surgical procedure.
This FDA-approved device uses monopolar radio frequency (RF) energy via micro-insulated single and triple needle tips. These specialized needles target tissues deep to the epidermis to achieve tightening, sculpting and fat melting. And because therapy is gentle, it can be used to treat almost any patient, regardless of skin color or type.
The Agnes RF offers a solution to these common complaints.
- Sagging Jowls
- Forehead wrinkles
- Under eye bags
- Sagging eyelids and crows feet wrinkles
- Lower cheek fullness
- Smile lines around the mouth
- Upper lip lines
- Double chin fullness
- Cystic and inflammatory acne
How does the Agnes RF work?
Agnes RF delivers monopolar radio frequency energy via semi-insulated microneedles specifically shaped to target dermis and superficial fat layers without injury to the epidermis. Heat coagulates underlying tissues to kick your body’s healing processes into gear. This means unwanted fat can be gently reduced to contour the lower eyelid area, jowls and under chin area. Collagen production increases to promote cellular turnover and strengthen your skin’s underlying support network. The thermal energy also causes the skin to tighten for a smoother surface. In correcting acne, the heat destroys targeted sebaceous glands and reduces oil production.
What is the downtime after an Agnes RF treatment?
The smaller the treatment area, the shorter the recovery time. There may be only mild redness that subsides within a 1-3 days depending on the area treated. Swelling and minimal bruising is normal for a few days up to a week. If more intensive treatment is performed for sculpting of larger areas such as the jowls and jawline, there can be moderate swelling that resolves over 1-2 weeks or longer.
There is mild to no discomfort after the treatment, but it is normal to experience altered sensation (numbness or slightly prickly sensation) of your treated skin. This sensation will resolve over several days to weeks. You will be able to resume regular activities that day. We recommend gentle handling of treated area for 48 hours, and to avoid sun exposure to treated skin for 2 weeks to avoid possibility of hyperpigmentation.

How long until I see results from an Agnes RF treatment?
For most clients there will be some immediate tightening visible. However best results will be visible over 1-2 months after treatment. It also takes several weeks for your body to remove disrupted fat cells from the treated area.
How many Agnes RF treatments will I need?
Although there may be noticeable improvement with even one treatment, optimal results usually require 2-3 treatments, spaced 2-3 months apart. For Acne treatments, 4 sessions are typically recommended, one month apart.
