Agnes RF for Acne
Destroy sebaceous glands that cause acne for good with our radio frequency precision microneedling device indicated for acne.
AGNES RF was carefully developed over two decades by Dr. Gun Young Ahn, with the intention of being used as a permanent solution to acne.
What are treatments with AGNES like?
Each AGNES treatment session requires two appointments.
When you come in for your first appointment, your provider iLamai Medical Spa and Wellness Center starts by applying a local numbing agent to keep you comfortable. Next, we clean your skin and extract any excess sebum from your hair follicles.
Once your skin is prepared, your provider inserts the microneedle into the hair follicles to reach the sebaceous gland and delivers the RF energy. This destroys the glands causing your acne.
At your second appointment the next day, your provider will extract debris from your pores and clean your skin. Each session takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and severity of your acne.
You may need more than one treatment session, especially if you have multiple areas with acne. On average, most people receive 2-3 treatment sessions over 3-4 weeks. When your sessions are complete, studies show that the acne is gone for good.
What makes AGNES different from other acne treatments?
Unlike other acne treatments, AGNES targets the cause of stubborn acne by destroying the glands that cause the skin condition in the first place.
Acne most commonly develops when your sebaceous (oil) glands get blocked by a buildup of a waxy substance called sebum and other skin debris such as dead skin cells, bacteria, and dirt. Different factors trigger the conditions that lead to blocked oil glands and extra debris, including:
- Hormone changes and imbalances
- Using certain soaps and skin care products
- Taking some prescribed medications
- Eating foods that trigger inflammation
Addressing these underlying triggers does help some people. But many others find that their acne persists despite switching soaps, making dietary changes, or even using special anti-acne products.
AGNES targets specific sebaceous glands. Once they’re destroyed, your acne improves. What’s more? For most patients, the treatment prevents future breakouts.
