Microneedling treats a wide variety of skin concerns, including skin laxity. For maximum results, the Agnes™ RF microneedling system adds radiofrequency energy. This highly customizable system can address cystic acne, loss of facial definition, and many other issues.
How to Treat Active Acne and Improve Facial Contouring
You may have active acne, loss of facial contouring, or both. Acne does not stop after puberty for many of us, and adult acne can cause inflammation and scarring. Loss of facial contouring happens to almost everyone, especially in the jawline and cheek, where skin and fat start to sag. The Agnes™ RF microneedling system uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to boost the results of microneedling and add even more benefits.
What is Agnes™ RF Microneedling?
The customizable Agnes™ RF microneedling system can use various needle configurations to target different areas and concerns. It uses partially insulated needles, so the RF energy affects the deeper layers of skin but has no effect on the skin’s surface. It can use bipolar or monopolar energy, letting your provider customize your treatment for your needs.
How Does Microneedling Treat Active Acne?
Do you have painful cystic acne that keeps coming back no matter how many topical treatments you use? Microneedling with the Agnes™ RF will use its RF energy under the skin to damage and collapse the sebaceous glands that cause your cystic acne. The micro-pulses of energy close off the glands, letting you see clearer skin and smaller pores.
How Does Microneedling Improve Facial Contouring?
Agnes™ RF microneedling creates areas of coagulation, also known as controlled micro-damage. This stimulates the surrounding skin cells to produce a barrage of healing and growth factors to repair the injury. It also triggers the cells to produce collagen and elastin, vital structural proteins that give skin its strength and elasticity. This collagen production tightens the skin, redefining the facial contours you thought you had lost.
What Results Will I See With Agnes™ RF Microneedling?
While you may see results after one session of microneedling, others may need two or three sessions. This often depends on your individual skin concerns and how significant they are. Results become visible within a few months and continue to develop for up to six months. People with active acne can start to see results in as little as one to two months.
Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?
For the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin might look red or sunburned. You may notice some swelling for up to a week. Avoid using harsh products on your face after treatment and protect your skin from sun exposure.
