4 Minute Read:
There are various options to treat wrinkles, excess pockets of fat, sagging skin, and other signs of aging on your face.
You can choose from an array of dermal fillers or neuromodulators that offer a temporary fix for wrinkles, lines, and scarring. Still, they require regular treatments to maintain your youthful look and don’t treat skin laxity.
Additionally, while these options temporarily address surface issues, they don’t act deeper in the dermis to truly reverse aging.
In recent years, different technologies have been employed to elicit natural, lasting facial rejuvenation results. Procedures like microneedling, radiofrequency (RF) treatments, and other minimally invasive procedures offer similar results to fillers and other non-surgical resurfacing procedures with less long-term upkeep.
That’s where Agnes RF comes in.
Agnes RF is a device that combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency therapies to give you a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
Dr. Cooper offers Agnes RF as an option for facial rejuvenation, giving her patients a safe and effective way to treat problems like wrinkles, reduced skin elasticity, under-eye bags, or pouches of fat in your neck.
The Technologies Behind Agnes RF
Understanding how Agnes RF works on your skin means understanding microneedling and radiofrequency technology.
Microneedling is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that refreshes and rejuvenates your skin. As the name implies, microneedling involves using superfine, short needles to create tiny, evenly-spaced punctures in your skin.
This process triggers your body’s wound-healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance.
Radiofrequency treatments work similarly to microneedling in that they cause minor skin injuries, which in turn stimulates collagen growth. The difference is that instead of needles, RF technology utilizes low-frequency electromagnetic waves to deliver controlled amounts of heat deep into your skin. Like microneedling, your body responds to the perceived injuries by boosting its production of collagen and elastin.
Taking traditional microneedling a step further by adding RF technology, Agnes RF maximizes the effectiveness of both treatments.
How Does Agnes RF Work?
Agnes RF is a handheld device equipped with nine needles designed to penetrate to different skin depths.
During your treatment, the needles penetrate the outer layer of your skin and deep into the dermal layer. Your provider directs pulses of focused RF energy into the targeted treatment area via specially insulated needles. These needles increase precision and minimize damage to surrounding skin, which helps reduce recovery time.
The heat energy not only works to stimulate collagen and elastin production but also “melts” away unwanted fat cells. Fat cells die when heated to around 110 degrees, and Agnes RF puts out enough heat to eliminate the targeted fat cells without harming your skin. The result is a smoother facial contour without invasive surgery.
Agnes RF Treatment Areas
Agnes RF is safe for treating all skin types, and is completely customizable to deliver the results you want, where you want them. Agnes RF addresses the following skin concerns associated with aging, including:
- Deep wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Age spots and pigmentation
- Enlarged pores
Agnes RF also offers facial contouring, including the elimination of:
- Under eye bags
- Double chin or neck fat (known as submental fat)
- Skin laxity
Treatments with the Agnes RF work to improve skin elasticity, firmness, and appearance without downtime for recovery.
What to Expect From Your Agnes RF Treatment
When you come in for your Agnes RF Treatment, we apply a topical numbing agent to your face or inject local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. Dr. Cooper then places the Agnes RF device on your skin, and you’ll feel a warm pressure as the device works on the targeted treatment area.
Agnes RF sessions typically last between 20 to 30 minutes, and you can immediately return to your normal daily activities. You may experience temporary redness, bruising, or swelling, but these are minor and resolve quickly. You’ll see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas, and as your skin continues to regenerate, your results will continue to progress over the following weeks and months.
