What Is AGNES Non-Surgical Eye Bag Removal?
AGNES non-surgical eye bag removal is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that harnesses radiofrequency energy to effectively melt the fat pads that cause under-eye bags. While dissolving under-eye fat deposits, the AGNES radiofrequency microneedlingdevice also tightens and smooths the skin beneath and around the eyes, creating a more youthful, vibrant-looking periorbital region.
How Does AGNES Radiofrequency Microneedling Work?
Because the AGNES eye bag removal procedure is minimally invasive, it does not require general anesthesia. Your provider will apply a topical anesthetic before initiating the treatment, and you’ll remain awake during the entire procedure.
You can also request self-administered nitrous oxide as an add-on to your treatment session, which will help minimize any anxiety or discomfort you may experience.
During the procedure, your provider will insert a thin, insulated microneedle into the treatment area beneath your eyes. This device will then deliver targeted pulses of radiofrequency energy into the fat deposits that form your under-eye bags, immediately melting them. You’ll literally hear the fat pads sizzling as the AGNES device rapidly dissolves them.
Generally, the procedure requires about 20 minutes to complete, but your treatment time may vary according to your biology and unique needs.
Because you won’t need to recover from general anesthesia — and because nitrous oxide takes just a few minutes to wear off — you can drive yourself home as soon as your appointment concludes.
How Does AGNES Non-Surgical Eye Bag Removal Compare to Surgical Treatments?
Radiofrequency microneedling for eye bag removal delivers highly noticeable, permanent results just like a lower blepharoplasty would. In fact, many patients find their results are equal to or even exceed those delivered by the surgical procedure.

But unlike surgical eye bag removal, radiofrequency treatments take only a few minutes to administer and require almost no downtime. Recovery after the AGNES procedure typically takes three to seven days, whereas recovery after a lower blepharoplasty usually requires about two weeks.
Post-treatment discomfort is also far less pronounced after the AGNES procedure, and perhaps even better, the treatment is considerably more affordable than surgery.
Radiofrequency microneedling treatments can also be repeated to achieve more dramatic results, depending on patients’ unique needs and treatment goals.
Who’s a Candidate for AGNES Non-Surgical Eye Bag Removal?
Most people who’d like to reduce or eliminate their under-eye bags are candidates for the AGNES radiofrequency microneedling procedure. However, you’ll need to have a pre-treatment consultation before undergoing treatment.
During this brief meeting, you and your provider will discuss your needs and goals, determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure, and discuss your recovery timeline and potential risks of treatment. You’ll have an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, so you can determine whether the procedure is truly right for your needs, lifestyle, and current situation.
