Agnes RF for Acne

Agnes RF is a non-surgical treatment designed to treat stubborn acne. It’s not just another temporary fix for acne – it targets the very source of the problem, offering a permanent solution to help you regain clear skin and the confidence you deserve.

Why Agnes RF for Acne?

Agnes RF is a revolutionary device that combines the skin-rejuvenating power of microneedling with the restorative benefits of radiofrequency (RF) energy. Tiny needles penetrate the skin to deliver RF energy to precise points below the skin where the sebaceous glands (oil glands) are.

    The Unique Features of Agnes RF

    Agnes RF is the only RF microneedling device to feature nine different types of micro-insulated needles, with each having a different length of insulation and purpose. This groundbreaking energy delivery system provides unparalleled versatility and precision to aesthetic treatments, effectively treating several areas and allowing procedures to be customized according to your unique needs.

      Targeting the Root Cause: Sebaceous Glands

      As an acne treatment, Agnes RF works by delivering RF energy into the skin to destroy clogged sebaceous glands.

      Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder involving hair follicles and sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands secrete sebum or oil to keep the skin hydrated; when these glands get clogged, they can produce pimples and whiteheads that can progress to cyst formation and nodules. Destroying the sebaceous glands helps to treat and prevent acne.


      Benefits of Agnes RF for Acne

      Agnes RF’s precise delivery system helps increase the efficiency of this acne treatment. The size and insulated design of the needles can treat hard-to-reach areas that other procedures can’t. It can treat nevus comedonicus, acne papulosa, pustular acne, nodular acne, cystic acne, keloid acne, syringoma, blackheads, and whiteheads.

      Agnes RF microneedling can also treat depressed acne scars. Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production to fill indentations in the skin and create a smoother surface. Agnes RF is ideal for the treatment of shallow acne scars.

        Reduced Scarring and Inflammation

        Agnes RF’s insulated micro-needles minimize unnecessary damage to surrounding tissue. This reduces the risk of scarring and inflammation.

          Minimal Downtime and Recovery

          Agnes RF targets and destroys the sebaceous glands without thermal injury to the skin’s epidermis, causing only minimal skin damage as it only treats the targeted area. This precision means the Agnes RF recovery time is minimal, with a lower chance of experiencing dry and sensitive skin.

            Comparing Agnes RF with Other Acne Treatments

            Unlike other acne treatments, Agnes RF targets the root cause of acne by targeting sebaceous glands.

            Over-the-counter topical products and prescription oral medications are designed to reduce the amount of oil your body produces or fight bacteria and infection from the inside out. These can cause dry, flaky skin and an upset stomach.

            Chemical peels and microdermabrasion for acne treatment work by exfoliating the skin or removing the damaged top layer to reveal clearer skin beneath.

            Agnes RF treatment does more than control oil, fight bacteria, or remove damaged skin layers. It targets and destroys specific sebaceous glands, improving your acne while preventing future breakouts.

              Laser Therapies and Agnes RF: A Comparative Look

              Both lasers and RF microneedling work on the premise of creating controlled injuries to the skin. Unlike lasers, which are light-based forms of energy, RF energy is electricity that is carefully controlled by devices like the Agnes RF.

              Although lasers work on the skin’s total thickness (epidermis and dermis), Agnes RF works primarily in the dermis. The controlled injury occurs at the needle tip in the dermis, where the sebaceous glands are. Since the heat generated from RF energy occurs in the skin’s deeper layers, there are no pigment-producing melanocytes. It means there is less downtime and a lower risk of scarring and pigmentation compared to ablative lasers. This makes Agnes RF a gentler acne treatment that is safe for all skin types.

              Agnes RF also differs from other RF microneedling devices. Agnes RF, Morpheus8, and Secret RF all penetrate the skin with needles to deliver energy and stimulate collagen and elastin production. While Morpheus8 and Secret RF are used for skin tightening and improving overall skin laxity and texture, Agnes RF was originally designed to treat acne but is also effective for treating sagging skin and melting fat.

                How Long Do Results Last with Each Treatment?

                Once your body has eliminated the affected sebaceous glands and produced new collagen, you’ll enjoy long-term results. Depending on your acne condition, Agnes RF treatment results can last from a few months to two years. We recommend regular touch-up sessions to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.
