Agnes Radiofrequency Treatment Tustin
Agnes Radiofrequency Device in Irvine
AGNES RF is a non-surgical radiofrequency device that treats eye bags using the Agnes Radiofrequency treatment in Tustin.
As we age, a lot of factos affect the look of our eyes, such as:
- Sleep deprivation
To some extent, we can control our sleep, stress and allergen exposure, but we cannot stop the aging process. As we get older, two things happen that cause the shape of our eyes to change. First, muscles in the eye area weaken, causing the overlying skin to become lax. Second, fat that surrounds and supports the eye area diminishes and starts to shift downward, eventually collecting in unsightly “bags” over and under the eyes. The loss of fat typically causes dark circles to appear, and eyelids and under eyes appear swollen, puffy and heavy. The result is a permanent tired look, even when you are fully rested.
Radiofrequency treatments started over 140 years ago with the invention of electrolysis in 1875. With the advent of laser hair removal in the 1990s the demand for electrolysis has fallen but researchers have looked for new applications. Key among these has been the targeting of the sebaceous gland (which cause acne), blackheads, syringomas, wrinkles and fat pads under the eyes and chin.
AGNES RF is a non-surgical radiofrequency device that treats eye bags without having to go under the knife. It also tightens and removes fat from the neck and jowl area. Cystic acne is treated by removing the sebaceous (oil) gland which causes acne and blackheads. AGNES RF is a cosmetic breakthrough. There is no other device that can safely and non-invasively treat under eye bags, sculpt the neck and jowl area, and treat cystic acne with minimal downtime.
Developed by Dr. Gun Young Ahn, a Korean dermatologist, Agnes uses the stable and effective technology of radiofrequency to specifically target a variety of tissue types and depths. The depth of the needle has been precisely designed to target the specific structure such as sebaceous glands or the fat layer. The needles have an insulated coating which protects opther structures in the skin as well as the epidermis, minimizing downtime. It pinpoints under eye bags, which often suggest age and fatigue. A scientifically researched and designed micro-insulated needle is inserted into the fat pad and the RF energy is delivered so permanently reduce the fat. The minimally invasive treatment only requires local anesthesia.

How Does It Work?
The AGNES uses radiofrequency(RF) energy to contract skin and unwanted fatty issue. A specialized needle system can precisely deposit the energy in a safe and effective manner either into the skin or below the skin. AGNES employs the stable and effective technology of RF on the base of electrocoagulation and electro thermolysis mechanism. AGNES focuses its RF energy on the targeted tissues taking into account the anatomical structure of the skin. The micro insulated needle is used to transmit the energy for the destruction of specific tissues. For example, sebaceous glands for acne treatment, combustion of fat under the eye, or the stimulation of collagen to induce the neocollagenesis for wrinkles around the eyes or anywhere on the face that botox cannot treat.
How Are Radiofrequency Treatments Done in Tustin?
Agnes RF procedures depend on targeted tissue. Many treatments can be performed simply with application of anesthetic cream 30-60 minutes before the procedure. The treatment then is relatively painless. In the case of eye bag treatments and deeper treatments, local anesthetic injections may be used in addition to the topical anesthetic cream. In the case of active acne treatments you may be advised to return in 24 to 48 hours for some light bipolar RF treatment plus further drainage of any remaining sebum / pus. For the actual treatment the needle being used is inserted into the acne follicle, wrinkle, fat pad and the machine is fired off with a precise number of shots depending on target issue.
Any Side Effects Or Downtime?
Yes there is slight bruising and swelling that can last 4 to 7 days depending on the procedure. Immediately after the treatment, the area will appear slightly swollen and red prick marks will be visible on the skin. Noticeable swelling and redness subsides a few days later, though it can take up to a week for all swelling to fully resolve. Occasionally, bruising may develop; this takes 5 to 14 days to heal. We typically tell patients to plan for 3 to 5 days of wontime due to associated swelling and occasional bruising.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
For wrinkles, most people will need between 2-4 treatments performed at one month intervals. For fat reduction and eyebag removal 2-3 treatments are needed and performed at 8 week intervals to give permanent results. For wrinkle reduction and jowl tightening we cannot claim the results are permanent because we still continue to age over time, but we can say the results can last several years.
How Long Does It Take For Improvement?
For deep wrinkles and eye bags, about 1-2 weeks after you have mostly recovered, the area may actually look “worse” than it did before the procedure, which is normal. Most of the benefit appears over the coming months as new collagen is deposited under the skin and the skin begins to remodel its structure. For the treatment of eye bags, it will take 2-6 months for the fat cells to be removed by the body’s macrophages. Similarly to wrinkles it may take up to 6 months to complete remodeling and remove damaged tissue.
Some After Care Deep Lines And Eye Bags
Immediately after the procedure for eye bags and deep wrinkles, the surface of the skin will be pink and sensitive for 3-10 days depending on the depth. Some bruising is common also. Ice may be applied every half hour to reduce discomfort and minimize swelling.
