What happens during the procedure?
The treatment area will be numbed for the comfort of the patient and the Doctor will draw out the treatment area. The patient will experience some heat from the RF energy, but it is very tolerable. The electric voltage to the skin sets off a cascade of physiological processes which results in cell membranes tightening. The treatment does not involve cutting, burning or removing skin or tissue.
For the treatment of the eye bag, specially designed radio frequency micro-needles are inserted along the contours of the under-eye area which then release heat produced from the radio frequency energy wave at a controlled pulse and depth to destroy fat cells safely and effectively inside the eye bags. Through this process the body forms new fibrous tissue and stimulates the production of collagen, causing collagen fibres to become shorter and more tense. At the same time, the molecules that make up collagen are left undamaged. Resulting in an increase of skin elasticity while avoiding damage to the pigment-producing cells of the epidermis (upper layer of skin) thus making the treatment effective for all skin types and colour.
Following this same process, Agnes can be used successfully for localised facial contouring, including decreasing the nasolabial fold, jowls, or submental area, as well as for defining the jawline. For this reason, AGNES RF is unlike any other RF Microneedling device on the market.
