Two Methods of Microneedling: Scarlet and Agnes

Scarlet and Agnes are two methods of RF microneedling technology that address different aesthetic issues of the face: skin appearance and fat.

  • Scarlet: Tiny needles are placed into the skin to deliver radiofrequency energy to stimulate the body’s fibroblasts to create new collagen and elastin (we lose this with age and gravity takes over!). This helps to tighten and lift the skin, soften lines/wrinkles and improve skin texture (softer, smaller pores).
  • Agnes: When a single needle is placed repeatedly in specific areas of fat on the face, the fat cells are melted and destroyed. This can be a non-surgical alternative to eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a neck lift.

Dr. Chen applies a numbing gel to the treatment area making this treatment virtually painless. The length of the treatment depends on treatment area and the desired results. Most Scarlet SRF and Agnes RF treatments take between 30 and 60 minutes.

Agnes RF typically does cause short term bruising depending on the treatment area. There is minimal downtime associated with both Agnes SRF and Scarlet RF, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.

How Many Scarlet SRF and Agnes RF Treatments Will I Need?
