Agnes RF treatment

Agnes has been targeting of the sebaceous gland (which cause acne), blackheads, syringomas, wrinkles and fat pads under the eyes and chin.

The Agnes machine is unique in that its inventor Dr. Gun Young Ahn, a professor of dermatology in Korea, as devised very precisely made needles with appropriate depths to target the structures in the skin causing the problem. The needles have an insulating coating also engineered to a precise depth, to protect other structures in the skin and also the epidermis. The coating means sufficient power can be delivered to the target tissue while causing minimal effects to other areas.

Frequently asked questions

Agnes RF procedures depend on targeted tissue. Most treatments can be done n 15 minutes with the prior application of anaesthetic cream 15 minutes before the procedure. The treatment then is relative painless. In the case of active acne treatments you may be advised to return in 48 hours for some additional treatment such as LED light therapy. For the actual treatment the needle being used is inserted into the acne follicle, wrinkle, fat pad and the machine is fired off with a precise number of shots depending on target tissue.
For deep lines and eye-bags downtime is between 3-7 days of swelling and redness followed by a further week of less severe redness (it is possible to do lighter treatments with less downtime but more treatments may be needed later). The redness and swelling should be able to be covered by foundation at day 4. Sometimes with heavy treatments there may be numbness and hypersensitivity of the treated area for up to 4 weeks.
Immediately after the procedure for eye-bags and heavy deep lines, the skin surface will be pink and sensitive (or even raw oozing and crusted in the case of deeper injuries) for 3-10 days, again depending on depth, ice bags may be applied every half hour to reduce discomfort and minimise swelling. Pawpaw gel or Vaseline should be applied to lubricate the surface after the procedure to reduce dryness. After 3 days as pimples may form it is okay to return to a regular light moisturizer such as Cetaphil.
For deep winkles and eye-bags about 1-2 weeks later, when you have pretty much recovered, the area may actually looks “worse” than it did before the procedure. This is normal. Much of the benefit appears over the coming months as new collagen is deposited under the skin and the skin begins o remodel its structure. For treatment of eye-bags it will take 2-6 months for the fat cells to be removed by the body’s macrophages. For Acne, Comedones, Blackheads, Syringiomas benefits maybe within a few weeks but similarly to wrinkles it may take up to 6 months to complete remodelling and remove damaged tissue.
Benefits from a single treatment should be permanent but this does not mean you can treat everything in a single treatment so 2-4 treatments may be needed to maximize improvements. We recommended 4 treatment at 2 weeks interval to achieve optimal results.
