Scarlet® RF vs. AGNES® RF: Which Microneedling Treatment Is Right for Me?

Scarlet® RF vs. AGNES® RF: Which Microneedling Treatment Is Right for Me?

If you want soft, smooth skin that stays firm and youthful to the touch, we have the answer. No, the fountain of youth doesn’t exist, but you’ll swear it might once you see the results radiofrequency (RF) microneedling offers.

This treatment uses tiny needles too small to cause bleeding to create micro wounds that trigger your body’s production of skin-improving collagen and elastin. It also delivers RF energy designed to smooth and tighten your skin, giving you a youthful appearance — without the lengthy recovery of surgery or side effects of injections. 

The experienced providers at Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada, have selected two FDA-cleared RF microneedling therapies: the Scarlet® RF and AGNES® RF treatment systems. 

Both minimally invasive options can give you smoother, clearer, younger-looking skin. But each addresses slightly different skin concerns associated with aging. Here’s how you can tell which treatment is right for you. 

About Scarlet RF

The Scarlet RF system sends short pulses of fractional RF energy through 25 non-insulated microneedles to your subdermal tissues. This tightens and contracts your skin at deeper levels, giving you smoother, firmer skin with a healthy, youthful glow. 

Scarlet RF can address many skin concerns on your face and body, including:

There’s little to no downtime required after treatments with Scarlet RF, and sessions take about 30 minutes or less to complete. 


The AGNES RF system lets your provider choose the right level of radiofrequency energy for your skin care needs. The system’s single-use needles come in a variety of sizes and insulation levels to allow us to deliver the RF energy to the exact right point to treat your most frustrating skin conditions.

While both Scarlet RF and AGNES RF help improve your skin, you might consider AGNES RF if you’re struggling with:

AGNES RF is safe for use treating all skin tones and types, although you should avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks.
