Agnes RF is a unique non-surgical radiofrequency (RF) platform that can sculpt and contour the face, neck, chin and other small areas of the body. This treatment creates more youthful-looking skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, providing unparalleled, long-lasting results without the need for surgery.
As a stand-alone treatment or used in combination with other modalities, Agnes RF provides the precision needed to customize results for patients of all ages and skin types.
Most patients do very well with one session. However, a consultation is necessary to determine the area and if more than one session will be necessary.
At AMIS MedSpa we like for our patients to have a great experience with our treatments, we combine other products in this treatment to enhance and reduce recovery. However, the downtime is more of an aesthetic downtime, in which the patient may have some markings from the treatment for a few days. As far as doing your daily activities most patients are able to, unless you work under the sun or exposed to high heat.
Most patients experience immediate results with visibly smoother and softer skin. Because the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers takes time. The results will continue to improve to measurable levels within 2 to 3 months, peaking at around 6 months. For acne sufferers, it may take 1-2 months for results to begin to show improvement. With a series of 2-3 treatments, the results will continue for up to a year or more. For those treating the jawline, your results may appear within 1 to 2 months and continue to improve as the body’s natural metabolic process eliminates the disrupted fat cells.
The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment that’s minimally invasive by nature and aims to tighten the skin and lift it to combat the aging process. Unlike surgical procedures, including the popular facelift, this treatment can lift and tighten the skin without incisions.
Once these threads are inserted into the skin, they attach to the tissue and lift it upward. Their presence in the skin forces the body to increase collagen and elastin production, which also increases skin volume and smoothes lines and wrinkles.
PDO refers to Polydioxanone, a substance that makes up the threads that have been used in the medical world for years during various types of surgical procedures. These threads are most commonly used during cardiothoracic surgery, and once inserted into the body, they are absorbed through a process called hydrolysis. After this absorption, the body heals, and there is no risk of scar tissue in place of the threads.
While these threads have proven to be effective in surgical procedures, they’re also effective when used in the cosmetic treatment called the PDO Thread Lift. This treatment uses these threads to cause collagen and elastin synthesis. Once they’re placed directly below the skin’s surface in strategic locations to lift and tighten the skin, the body will respond to their presence and increase collagen production.
Most patients who schedule this treatment are looking for results similar to a facelift, minus the invasive surgical techniques, downtime, and lengthy recovery. PDO Thread Lifts are versatile and can help patients reach different aging-related goals. They can:
Once absorbed by the body, the new contours and tighter and lifted skin will last anywhere from 12 to 15 months post-treatment. You will enjoy tighter and more youthful-looking skin for a significant amount of time. The good news is, at some point, when your results begin to fade, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to continue to maintain younger-looking skin.
Unlike an invasive surgical procedure designed to lift and tighten the skin such as a traditional Facelift. Downtime with this procedure is more of an aesthetic down time. You may feel mild discomfort days after this procedure is done. A follow up appointment is recommended to make sure everything is healing nicely. Patients may return to their daily activities as soon as the next day. However, the only activity that shall be avoided for the first 2 weeks is strenuous or heavy lifting activities.
We will provide you with extensive details on how to care for your skin and what products or activities to avoid in the treatment following days so that you can achieve optimal results.
