Agnes is a non-surgical radiofrequency device that can effectively tighten the skin of your eyelids. It reduces the droopiness of the upper eyelids, crow’s feet and wrinkles as well as improve the overall appearance of the eyes. Agnes can also tightens and removes fat from the neck and jowl area. Not only does it remove the fat, it tightens the skin. AGNES also offers permanent solutions for a variety of skin problems including cystic acne, inflammatory acne, blackheads, large pores and syringomas.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Agnes makes use of a patented micro-needle that is as fine as a mosquito sting. It emits radio-frequency energy with precision and is able to selectively target and shrink subcutaneous fat between the skin and before the orbital septum. This results in tightening and firming of the skin as new collagen is stimulated into forming.
For best results, it takes about 1 or 2 months. However some patients see improvements in as little as the first two weeks.
During the treatment, which usually lasts around 20 minutes, a numbing cream is applied around the treatment area, followed by anaesthetic jabs. A hand-held device with a needle then delivers heat and RF pierces the skin at controlled depths. This melts the fat and stimulates collagen production. Cooling gel packs are then placed on the treated area to soothe the skin, which may feel tender and sensitive immediately after treatment.
The Agnes is used a part of the Non-surgical 4D eye bag removal that is available at our centre. Click here to find out more.
