Understanding Agnes RF for Skin-Tightening

Agnes RF is an innovative skin-tightening treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling with the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate the skin without surgery. Below, we explain how Agnes RF can be the right treatment option to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Benefits of Agnes RF in Skin-Tightening

Agnes RF is a safe and effective laser device that provides a customizable treatment for many skin conditions. It can precisely target problem areas without damaging the surrounding skin.

Agnes RF can help treat the following skin issues and aging concerns:

  • Submental fat (double chin)
  • Under-eye bags
  • Jowls or skin laxity around the neck
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Enlarged and clogged pores
  • Sagging skin
  • Scars
  • Acne


Non-Surgical Advantages

Agnes RF microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that provides natural-looking results with minimal downtime and recovery. Topical numbing cream is applied before treatment, and most patients find the procedure to be relatively comfortable.

There may be swelling and redness for a day or two, but these mild symptoms should not keep you from your daily schedule.

    Long-Lasting Results

    With Agnes RF, results improve over time because the device helps stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. Initial results can be seen within a month after a session and will continue to develop for up to six months after each treatment.

    Depending on your skin condition, Agnes RF can provide results that can last for up to two years. Regular touch-up sessions are recommended to maintain the treatment’s benefits.

      Who is a Good Candidate?

      Ideal candidates for Agnes RF include those seeking a non-surgical approach to rejuvenate their skin and reduce mild-to-moderate sagging skin, wrinkles, under-eye bags, or other signs of aging.


      Skin Types Suitable for Agnes RF

      Agnes RF is typically safe for all skin tones and types.

        Age Considerations

        Agnes RF provides the safety and precision required to customize treatment for patients of all ages, including those with acne and early signs of aging.

        The best way to determine if you’re an ideal candidate for Agnes RF skin tightening is to consult with one of our board-certified dermatologists at Spring Street Dermatology.

          The Agnes RF Skin-Tightening Procedure

          An Agnes RF skin-tightening procedure involves the following steps:

            Pre-Treatment Preparations

            The numbing cream we apply to the treatment area is typically enough to manage any discomfort. However, other anesthetic options are available for patients concerned about pain. Under-eye treatments or conditions that require deeper needle penetration or higher RF energy settings may also require local anesthesia injections.

              What to Expect During the Session

              An Agnes RF session is a fast and straightforward procedure that can be performed in approximately 15-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

              Agnes RF’s handheld device uses precise single-pin or three-pin micro-needles to puncture the skin’s surface and deliver RF energy into the deeper skin layers. During a treatment session, RF energy settings will be adjusted to allow precise targeting of skin layers and their specific issues.

                Aftercare and Recovery for Agnes RF Skin-Tightening

                Agnes RF recovery time and downtime are minimal. However, side effects and the length of recovery time can vary based on the type of treatment and the skin conditions treated. For example, a patient using Agnes RF for acne can expect redness and swelling for 1-3 days. Those undergoing treatment on a sensitive area, such as under the eyes, can expect swelling and redness for 3-7 days.

                  Immediate Aftercare

                  There will be some redness and swelling after your treatment. Ice packs can be applied to reduce swelling and relieve any discomfort.

                  Since the skin is extra sensitive after treatment, avoid direct sun exposure for about two weeks to prevent the risk of hyperpigmentation.

                  Avoid wearing makeup for the first two days to allow your skin time to heal. Makeup may clog your pores and cause breakouts while your skin is recovering.

                  Avoid strenuous workouts, saunas, and other activities that may cause sweating for the first 72 hours after your treatment to prevent skin irritation.

                    Long-Term Maintenance

                    Patients with severe skin conditions or those looking to address multiple concerns may require a series of treatment sessions. For the best results, we recommend 2-3 treatments spaced about 3-6 months apart. Your dermatologist at Spring Street Dermatology will customize your treatment plan according to your unique skincare needs and goals.

                    To help extend your results, be sure to:

                    • Always use sun protection
                    • Have a solid skincare regimen
                    • Eat healthy foods
                    • Exercise regularly
                    • Stay hydrated
