What Is AGNES Non-Surgical Eye bag Removal?
Dealing with bags under your eyes that you’re not particularly fond of? Did you know you can have them permanently removed non-surgically in just a few minutes? Or that non-surgical treatment for eyebags is a fraction of the cost of a lower blepharoplasty?
At Medical Tattoo Centers of America, we’re the only aesthetic clinic in the Twin Cities currently offering this cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedure. Below, we’re sharing all the detail you need to know about AGNES non-surgical eye bag removal, how it works, and what you can expect from treatment.
What Is AGNES Non-Surgical Treatment for Under Eye Bags?
AGNES is a minimally invasive, radiofrequency microneedling device that delivers a precision stream of concentrated RF energy to targeted areas. This device features micro-insulated needles that protect the upper layers of your dermis while delivering high energy to the target treatment areas deep below your skin’s upper layers.
Treatments with the AGNES device are effective not only for under-eye bags but also for excess submental (double chin) fat. The procedure can also improve the appearance of acne, wrinkles, and skin laxity and can even deliver an effective mini-facelift.
How Does the AGNES Procedure Work?
AGNES non-surgical treatment for eye bags is a minimally invasive procedure, so you’ll be awake during the entire treatment. Your provider will apply a topical anesthetic and inject a local anesthetic just beneath your skin before beginning the treatment. We also offer self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas), which you can use before and during the procedure to further reduce discomfort and alleviate anxiety.
When the treatment area is numb and you’re ready to begin, your provider will insert the thin. AGNES electrode into the fat pad beneath your eye. The electrode will then emit radiofrequency energy that immediately begins melting the fat. You’ll likely hear a sizzling sound as the device dissolves the fat, so you’ll know it’s working.
Who Is a Candidate for Treatment?
AGNES treatments are safe for all skin types, and many people are excellent candidates for treatment. However, if you’re pregnant or have certain metal implants, a pacemaker, or uncontrolled diabetes, you’re not a candidate for the procedure. There are a few other contraindications to treatment, which your provider will discuss with you during a pre-treatment consultation.
What Results Can You Expect From Non-Surgical Eye Bag Treatment?
Results from AGNES treatments are permanent because the device effectively melts, and therefore eliminates, the fat that forms the bags under your eyes. After just one treatment, you’ll see a visible reduction in the size of your eye bags and improvements in skin laxity and wrinkles throughout the treatment area(s).
What Does Recovery Look Like?
After the procedure, expect the treatment area to feel sore. You’ll likely also have some minor redness, bruising, and minor swelling, which can last a few days to a week. Downtime is minimal, and you can return to your normal activities almost immediately after treatment. You’ll benefit from avoiding direct facial sun exposure for about 48 hours after the procedure.
