Non-Surgical Jowl Fat Removal with Agnes RF
The jowl area along the jawline is one of the more noticeable areas of the face that changes with age and slowing metabolisms. Until recently, surgery was the only way to remove jowl fat and restore contour to the jawline. However, there is now a non-surgical alternative to jowl fat removal with Agnes RF.
What is Agnes RF?
Agnes RF (Radio Frequency) is a microneedling device that permanently and precisely delivers radiofrequency energy to targeted treatment areas like the jowls. Unlike other rf microneedling devices, the square waveform of radio frequency that Agnes RF delivers is safe and works on all skin types along the Fitzpatrick scale.
It’s superior to other rf microneedling treatments because it precisely produces a tissue response without damaging surrounding epidermis.
Radio Frequency devices are known to tighten skin. But, in addition to tightening and lifting treatment areas, Agnes also has the ability to permanently eliminate fat!
What is an Agnes RF Treatment Like?
Every treatment begins with local anesthesia to thoroughly numb the area. Then, the provider treats in a pattern along the jowl area to kill fat cells while tightening tissue This results in a more defined jawline. Treating the jowl area can take 20 to 30 minutes or longer depending on the size or condition of the area.
It’s important to note that RejuvenationMD prescribes a series of Scarlet SRF (short pulse radio frequency) treatments in addition to each Agnes RF treatment. together, these treatments produce the very best non-surgical results. Agnes RF has one to three micro insulated needles, while Scarlet SRF has 24 tapered pins. Both devices deliver radio frequency to every layer of the tissue for optimal tightening and lifting.
Because Agnes RF permanently eliminates fat, aesthetic experts can address concerns like eye bags, lipomas, double chin fat and more.
Is There Downtime from Agnes RF Treatment?
After the patient is numb, any other discomfort can be resolved with a little Pro-Nox™ if necessary. An experienced provider knows how to minimize the side effects of bruising and discomfort as much as possible. depending on diet, supplements and medications, certain patients will bruise more than others.
After treatment, the area may feel warm and have a slight windburned appearance, but this resolves in a few hours. If there is bruising, the patient may opt for social downtime. But, that’s the extent of the downtime that patients can expect from treatment.
How Long Does it Take to See Results from My Agnes Jowl Fat Treatment?
Some patients see visible tightening results almost immediately after their first treatment. However, two to three Agnes RF treatments with a series of Scarlet SRF treatments are necessary for optimal results. Agnes kills fat and both Agnes and Scarlet generate new collagen, elastin and fibrin.
Because the body needs time to generate new tissue and flush away dead fat cells, it can take about three months to see results of the dermal remodeling.
However, three months is worth the wait when compared to the downtime, pain and risk of surgery.
