Using the AGNES treatment as an acne solution

Acne is a skin condition that is not only well-known but extremely common and affects patients of all ages. Regardless of age, it can cause redness, pimples, and even acne scars that can affect the texture, tone, and overall appearance of the face and other parts of the body. At Pua Manu MedSpa of Kapolei, Hawaii, Dr. Nancy Chen and her team understand how complicated acne can be when it comes to treating it and is up for the challenge! While topical medications and skin care products can help, she may encourage patients to use today’s technology to clear the skin. She is excited to offer a treatment known as AGNES, which provides long-term clearing of acne on the skin.

What is the AGNES treatment, and how does it work?

AGNES is an acne treatment that is just one of several acne solutions available at our practice. This radiofrequency ablation treatment uses radiofrequency, or RF, energy that penetrates the skin and directly targets the sebaceous glands responsible for oil production on the skin. The glands shrink and no longer produce sebum. Sebum is the primary reason for acne development on the skin. By minimizing and even eliminating sebum production on the face, patients can combat clogged pores and oily skin and effectively reduce the number of flare-ups or breakouts they experience compared to prior treatments. This is considered one of the most effective and reliable methods of treating acne today!

Who is a good candidate for the AGNES acne treatment?

Many of our patients who have acne and have struggled to clear it on their own are very happy with the results achieved with this radiofrequency ablation treatment. It is non-invasive and effective at addressing mild to severe acne on the face and other parts of the body, including the buttocks, arms, chest, and back. It can be used on any skin tone and type and is effective for many of our patients seeking a reduction in acne when topical over-the-counter products fail to work.
