AGNES: The Anti-Acne Treatment You Haven’t Tried

Most people are born with soft, blemish-free skin, but it doesn't often last for long. As you age, your skin changes, and some people have breakouts and pimples long into adulthood.

While over-the-counter acne treatments help in some cases, dermatologists don't formulate them specifically for your skin type, which can result in dryness, redness, and a drop in self-esteem.

If you're ready to take the next step in skin treatment through cutting-edge microneedling, the AGNES system may be just what you're looking for. At Flushing Medical Spa in Queens, New York, Dr. QiLi Li and her team offer several successful skin care treatments, including the one and only AGNES system.

Dr. Li carefully evaluates your skin and goals to determine the best treatment for your skin and cosmetic needs.

What is acne?

Ance is a prevalent skin condition where the pores on your face, neck, chest, or back clog with dirt or bacteria. Pimples form from your clogged pores, causing painful, sometimes pus-filled bumps.

Many assume teenagers are the only ones who get acne, but that's false. People can have acne well into their adult lives.

Various forms of acne can affect your skin and cause embarrassment and low self-esteem. Some of the prevalent kinds of acne include:

  • Nodular acne
  • Hormonal acne
  • Fungal acne
  • Cystic acne

Acne affects most people at some point in their lives. Over-the-counter treatments used to address this condition include face washes, creams, and lotions. These options work for some, but not all. If you're still struggling with acne, Flushing Medical Spa offers the cutting-edge treatment known as AGNES.

Understanding AGNES

AGNES is a state-of-the-art technology that utilizes microneedling and radiofrequency to smooth out your skin for a flawless appearance. You need to learn more about microneedling and radiofrequency technology to understand how AGNES works.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by making tiny microtears in your skin. The needles are sterile and small, encouraging your body's healing response to eliminate signs of aging and improve acne scars.

On the other hand, radiofrequency technology utilizes heat and radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production under your skin, treating various issues like large pores, acne, and fine lines or wrinkles.

At Flushing Medical Spa, we harness the power of effective microneedling and radiofrequency technology to eliminate acne scars and blemishes for a youthful, flawless glow.

The advantages of AGNES for eliminating acne are numerous. It's minimally invasive, requires almost zero downtime, prevents the need for surgery, and delivers unrivaled results compared to other treatments alone.

What to expect at your appointment

Dr. Li evaluates your skin at your initial appointment and determines if the AGNES system suits your needs and goals. If you're living with the fear of another breakout and skin dimpling from acne, you no longer need to worry.

When you come in for an AGNES treatment, we bring you into a therapy suite, where you sit comfortably in a chair. Dr. Li carefully cleanses your skin to reduce bacteria and decrease the chance of infection.

She then numbs the treatment area to ensure you're comfortable during your procedure. When you're ready, Dr. Li uses the AGNES handheld device to target the problem areas on your skin.

You may feel warmth and small pricks where the tiny needles penetrate your skin, but it shouldn't be uncomfortable. She moves the handpiece around until she addresses every area of concern.

When you're done, Dr. Li cleans your skin again, and you can continue your regular activities. You'll notice clearer, blemish-free skin in the weeks following your procedure.
