Radiofrequency MicroneedlingWilliamsville, NY
Skin imperfections on the face and neck can cause women and men to feel self-conscious. These issues are often the effects of sun damage or age, but they can also result from lifestyle choices and life events.
While there are numerous cosmetic options available for treating these facial concerns, radiofrequency (RF) treatments are often the best choice for many patients. This is because RF treatments can correct skin issues at their source and offer long-lasting results to improve your confidence and comfort.
At Artesia Plastic Surgery, Dr. Schultz is proud to offer the revolutionary AGNES RF system, which combines radiofrequency technology with microneedling to help improve (and even eliminate) many of these skin concerns that cause you so much frustration.
Am I a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

- Jawline (jowls)
- Chin (including double chin)
- Nasolabial folds

What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling with the AGNES system is a non-surgical treatment that helps women and men who deal with any of the following skin imperfections:
- Fine lines
- Skin laxity
- Scars (including acne scars)
- Volume loss
One of the many benefits of AGNES RF microneedling is that a treatment plan will be created to specifically address your concerns.
What Is Involved in RF Microneedling?
For many people, the concept of microneedling can seem off-putting; however, this treatment has developed into one of the most effective ways of treating tone and texture irregularities.
The AGNES system is equipped with nine needles, each penetrating to various depths. These needles are used to create a series of micro-injuries in the treatment area.
At the same time, radiofrequency energy will be directed through the created channels to reach the deeper layers of the dermis. The combination of the micro-injuries and radiofrequency energy promotes collagen and elastin production, which aids in healing the micro-injuries and strengthens the tissues.
The AGNES system has been specifically designed to maximize energy output while protecting the outer layers of the skin.
This treatment generally takes 30 minutes to complete.
What Is Recovery From RF Microneedling Like?
Along with the many physical and psychological benefits of AGNES RF microneedling, one of the best aspects of this treatment is that there is little to no downtime. This means that you can return to your normal, daily activities following your treatment session.
Some bruising, swelling, slight discomfort, itchiness, and redness on the skin can be expected; however, these side effects will dissipate within a few days.
What Results Can I Expect After RF Microneedling?
While you will likely see some improvement immediately after your treatment, it often takes up to six months for final results to settle in. This is because it takes time for collagen to be produced.
Once your results finalize, you can look forward to noticeably smoother, tighter, firmer, and clearer skin that can have you smiling from ear to ear.
