Agnes Q & A

What is AGNES acne treatment?

AGNES is a safe, cutting-edge microneedle that delivers radiofrequency waves to the skin, to destroy oil-producing glands without damaging the skin around it. AGNES has been proven to prevent future acne outbreaks while reducing the appearance of existing scars and pitting.

Acne is a skin condition caused by hair follicles that become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, affecting people of all ages and skin types. Blackheads, whiteheads, bumps, pimples, and lesions are common signs of acne.

Acne can be tough to treat, and some men and women continue to battle it well into their 40’s and 50’s. AGNES is a safe, long-lasting alternative to topical creams and oral medications that are often ineffective and come with unwanted side effects.

What do AGNES acne treatments involve?

AGNES treatment involves three steps:


Dr. Devera thoroughly cleanses the skin to prepare it for AGNES treatment. She extracts every blackhead, whitehead, and clogged pore before identifying the areas for treatment.


Next, Dr. Devera applies numbing cream to the area to prevent any discomfort during treatment. She then gently inserts the tiny AGNES micro-needle into each skin follicle, delivering radiofrequency currents to destroy oil glands. The micro-needle is insulated to protect the surrounding skin from damage.


During your follow-up session the next day, Dr. Devera removes any remaining debris and impurities from the skin’s surface. After treatment, you may experience temporary redness, scabbing, or swelling that disappears in 1-2 weeks.

What results can I expect from AGNES treatment and how long will they last?

AGNES is different from other acne treatments because AGNES permanently destroys the glands that cause acne symptoms and flare-ups. Other acne treatments only offer temporary relief, allowing acne outbreaks to recur during hormonal periods like puberty or menstruation.

AGNES treatments last 30-60 minutes per session. Dr. Devera usually recommends 2-3 sessions depending on the severity of your acne. With each session, the number of lesions decreases. Less than 10% of people have an acne recurrence after their final AGNES treatment.
