Agnes Acne is a radio frequency treatment designed to treat chronic acne at the root of the problem. Acne is an inflammatory disorder of the hair follicle arising from our sebaceous glands; Agnes Acne destroy these glands without thermal injury of the epidermis to effectively reduce acne.
How Does Agnes Work?
Using precisely administered radio-frequency energy through special tiny partially insulated needles, Agnes destroy the sebaceous glands without causing any injuries to the skin epidermis. With the sebaceous glands destroyed, hair follicles do not get inflamed and infected any more so acne on the treatment area goes away for good.
What is the Procedure Like?
A local anesthesia will be applied on one’s skin prior to treatment for a full numbing of the skin before the radiofrequency treatment.
The procedure first starts with a thorough extraction to clear up the pores, followed with Agnes treatment and ends with a healing laser light. A follow-up session is required the next day which involves radio frequency to loosen any remaining debris in the pores and help speed up skin healing.
What is the Downtime?
Patients may experience redness on the treated area and mild swelling may occur due to the insertion of the micro-needle.These will subside in a few days.
What are the Expected Results?
A decrease of 50% to 70% of acne breakouts can be expected after the first treatment, and by the third session, most will achieve up to 90% clearance, though some variation may occur from patient to patient. Pimples don’t form again in the treated follicles and over time the number of new lesions reduces.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for Agnes?
Anyone suffering from chronic acne looking for a lastingsolution to their acne problems. Agnes is also suitable for those who do not wish to consume oral medications (especially for females planning a family) or use expensive laser which only controls the problem temporarily.
What else can be Treated with Agnes?
In addition, the Agnes machine can also be used for the following indications.
- Saggy Upper Eyelid
- Eye bags
The emitted radio-frequency energy with controlled precision is able to selectively target and shrink subcutaneous fat between the skin and before the orbital septum. This results in tightening and firming of the skin around the eye as new collagen is stimulated into forming.
