AGNES™ radiofrequency facial rejuvenation is highly effective for a range of surface and subdermal issues, including wrinkles and under-eye bags. Its primary benefit is to improve texture and tone of the skin, but it can also be used for moderate shrinkage of small pockets of fat, especially below the jawline.
What is AGNES RF?
AGNES RF is an advanced radiofrequency/microneedling procedure. Targeted radiofrequency energy is an innovative technology that is transforming the way plastic surgeons and nurses treat a variety of facial issues, including loose skin, pockets of fat, fine lines, large pores, acne and more. During the minimally invasive procedure, thin needles that are used to penetrate the skin also transmit radiofrequency energy below the skin’s surface.
This disrupts fat cells and aging skin with precisely targeted heat and pulses of micro-punctures. In defense, your body begins boosting production of its revitalizing proteins — collagen and elastin. The result is firmer, more flexible skin, less fat cells, smaller pores, and fewer blemishes.

Recovery & Results
Deeper AGNES RF treatments will result in some swelling and occasional bruising that may last up to one week. By the fourth day, you will be able to use makeup to conceal the redness. Hypersensitivity may last for up to a month.
When AGNES RF is used to treat cystic acne, redness may persist for 1 to 3 days. For recovery from treatment of significant wrinkles and under-eye bags, recovery time may last for up to two weeks.
In the first two weeks following an AGNES RF treatment, the condition of the treated area may actually seem worse than before. As swelling and redness subside, your appearance will slowly improve.
The real benefit of AGNES RF, however, is its stimulation of collagen and elastin production — and this happens slowly.
It can take up to six months for the newly generated collagen to revitalize under-eye bags and improve wrinkles, and for disrupted fat cells to be absorbed by the body. Results for cystic acne treatment will be apparent much sooner, normally within two weeks.
The AGNES RF treatment does require a series of treatments which can be anywhere between 3 to 6 treatments or more, every 4to 6 weeks (depending on what areas you’re treating).
