Non-surgical cosmetic breakthrough that treats under eye bags, sculpts the neck and jawline and eliminate cystic acne with minimal downtime.
Target Specific Skin Concerns and Pockets of Fat With Precision
Agnes 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. 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.
Using Radiofrequency to target acne, skin and fat like never before
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. The needles have an insulated coating which protects other 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 to permanently reduce the fat. The minimally invasive treatment only requires local anesthesia.
The procedure is done in-office, using only local anesthetic and can be completed in 30-45 minutes. There is minimal downtime so you can go back to your daily life in a few days.
The most ideal candidates have good skin elasticity and mild to moderate skin laxity.
It’s important to be in good overall health, to be a non-smoker, and to have realistic expectations.

Facial enhancement is a technically demanding procedure that requires the highest level of skill. For this reason, it is very important that you choose a provider that is highly skilled and experienced. You should also remember that no single technique is appropriate or “best” for all patients and that facial enhancement should be individualized just for you depending on your goals and facial characteristics. Dr. Fan believes that less is more and will use the simplest, safest, and most reliable procedure to help you look younger.
Dr. Fan is highly experienced with non-invasive and minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments, so he will be able to help you understand the benefits, expected results, risks, and limitations of each type of treatment so that you can decide whether a non-surgical or surgical treatment is best for you.

Agnes procedures depend on targeted tissue. Many treatments can be performed with only numbing cream applied 20 minutes before the procedure. The treatment is relatively painless. In the case of eye bag treatments and deeper treatments, local anesthetic injections may be used in addition to the numbing 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 appropriate needle is inserted into the acne follicle, wrinkle, or fat pad and the machine is triggered with a precise number of pulses depending on the area being treated.
For acne, syringomas and blackheads, the side effects are mild redness for 1-3 days. This can usually be covered with some foundation or tinted moisturizer. No specific aftercare is needed for these procedures.
For deep lines and eye bags the downtime is between 3-7 days with possible swelling and redness followed by another week of less severe redness. It is possible to do lighter treatments with less downtime but more treatments may be needed. The redness and swelling may be concealed by foundation at day 4. Sometimes with heavy treatments, numbness and hypersensitivity may be experienced for up to 4 weeks.
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.
For acne, comedones, blackheads, and syringomas the benefits may be within a few weeks. Similarly to wrinkles it may take up to 6 months to complete remodeling and remove damaged tissue.
The pain level differs from patient to patient. An anesthetic cream or local anesthesia injections will be administered depending on the area to provide the patient with the most comfort during the treatment.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of eyelids. Blepharoplasty may be performed on the upper and lower eyelids. It is often done in conjunction with a facelift, or in some cases in place of a facelift when the main area of concern is the eyes.
A brow lift is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the forehead and eyebrows. It is different from a facelift because the facelift focuses on the mid and lower parts of the face below the eyes. A brow lift is often done in conjunction with a facelift.
Fat transfer is a procedure that involves harvesting fat cells from other parts of your body and injecting them into a treatment site to increase volume. Fat transfer to the face is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to restore lost volume in the cheeks, folds around the nose and mouth, lips, and temples.

Injectable fillers such as Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Belotero, Sculptra, and Bellafill are very popular treatments used to restore lost facial volume and plump up deep folds and hollows associated with aging of the cheeks, eyes, mouth, nose, forehead, temples, and lips.
Injectable fillers are administered during a quick, in-office procedure with little-to-no downtime. Injectable fillers are commonly used before and after facelift surgery.
Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles, blemishes, irregularities, and scars using concentrated beams of light. Laser resurfacing of the face is often performing in conjunction with or after a facelift to repair sun damaged skin.
IPL, or intensed pulsed light, is a photofacial treatment to reduce brown spots, redness, age spots, broken blood vessels, and rosacea. IPL is often performed after a facelift to repair aging skin.

Our skin care programs involve the use of medical grade skin care products that can brighten, smoothen, and even out aging skin. Our skin care programs are frequently used to enhance the results of facelift surgery.
Botox, or botulinum, is a very popular treatment that reduces and prevents the development of facial wrinkles caused by facial muscles. Botox is most commonly used to treat unwanted lines across the forehead, the “11s” between the eyebrows, and the crow’s feet next to the eyes.
Botox is administered as a quick, in-office injection with no downtime. Botox is commonly used as a maintenance treatment before and after facelift surgery.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound energy to firm, tighten, and lift the skin. The improvement seen after Ultherapy treatment is much more subtle and modest compared to the results of a facelift.
Ultherapy is often used for maintenance treatment after facelift surgery. Ultherapy is not a suitable replacement for a facelift; patients who desire a facelift but choose Ultherapy are seldom happy patients.
Total facial rejuvenation encompasses a comprehensive treatment plan that includes tightening loose skin, restoring lost volume, repairing sun damaged skin, and relaxing the facial muscles.
A facelift is one of the main components of total facial rejuvenation, as are eyelid surgery, brow lift surgery, fat transfer, injectable fillers, laser resurfacing, IPL photofacial, medical grade skin care, and Botox treatment.
