What is AGNES?
AGNES Precision RF Microneedling is an advanced and innovative treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) technology with microneedling to target and address various skin concerns. Developed to provide precise and targeted energy delivery, AGNES can effectively treat conditions such as acne, acne scars, under-eye bags, and unwanted fat deposits. By combining microneedles with RF energy, AGNES promotes collagen production and tissue remodeling, leading to visible improvements in the treated areas.

How Long Does AGNES Take?

Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results, and your practitioner will create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
Is AGNES Painful?
AGNES treatments are generally well-tolerated by patients. The procedure involves the use of microneedles combined with RF energy, which can cause a mild sensation during the treatment. To ensure comfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied before the procedure. Many individuals report only minimal discomfort and find the benefits of the treatment to be well worth any temporary sensation.
