A double chin forms when there is a collection of submental fat. When the collection is substantial enough, it forms a wrinkle and that creates the appearance of a double chin. Although commonly associated with weight gain, there are other factors such as genetics, ageing, poor posture and loose skin which can contribute to this problem. There are various options to tackle this problem. Lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise can help. Beyond that, there are various non-surgical treatment options. Agnes RF treatment is one such treatment option.
What is Agnes RF and how does it work?
Agnes RF is a procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency to precisely reduce fat and tighten skin under the eye and chin area. The needles are designed to target specific depths to get rid of stubborn and unwanted fat in a safe manner, while also tightening up any loose skin and improving wrinkles. These needles are insulated to prevent injury to the epidermis layer of the skin. Radiofrequency is then emitted through the needles and the energy reduces fat, stimulates collagen, and tightens the skin over the treated area.
Get rid of eye bags and double chin safely and effectively without surgery, with minimal pain and downtime.
What should I expect with the treatment?
After a consultation and if the procedure is deemed suitable for your face, a numbing cream will first be applied to the target areas. To further reduce pain, local anaesthetic injections will be given to the treated area. A tiny insulated micro-needle is then inserted to the treated area, releasing radiofrequency and heat. The treatment will take between 30-45 minutes.
Is there any downtime with this procedure?
There will be some amount of downtime with the procedure, but this depends on how intensive the treatment is. There can be some redness, bruising and swelling after the treatment. This usually lasts for 3-5 days. If a more intensive treatment is performed, the downtime can be prolonged to 7-14 days. Patients will be advised to conceal these areas with make up usually after 3 days. Rarely, there can be persistent numbness/hypersensitivity for up to a few months after the treatment. Patients can apply cold packs over the treated areas every 30 minutes initially to help with the swelling. Certain medications can also be prescribed to help with the bruising and swelling.
How long does it take to see the improvements?
The results may be visible from a month post treatment, but it may take up to 3-6 months for the fat cells to be removed, and for the remodelling process and collagen production to be completed.
How many treatments will I need?
There can be permanent results after a single session of treatment. However, for the best results, some patients may require 2-3 sessions of treatments. This may differ from patient to patient.
Can I combine Agnes RF with other treatments?
Yes, you can. Depending on the problem, Agnes RF can be combined with filler injections, Rejuran injections, Ultherapy and Thermage for a better result. Let our doctor advise you on this. Book an appointment now for a thorough assessment and treatment plan.
