Plasma skin resurfacing with the Subnovii Plasma Pen is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that reduces fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes scars and blemishes, and tightens and tones the skin. Also known as “fibroblasting,” or “fibroblast therapy,” the Subnovii creates a plasma stream of ionized gas to stimulate tissue remodeling and the production of collagen. This results in natural rejuvenation for younger, tighter, smoother looking skin.
Plasma technology takes advantage of the fine layer of ionized gas, or plasma, that exists along the surface of your skin. Plasma devices emit energy that instantly sublimates a precise spot on the skin. A sealed wound is created and heat is delivered below the skin to kick start fibroblast activity, which stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
The tip of the plasma device never actually touches the skin — it’s the power of molecular physics that gives this treatment its magic.
The Most Popular Areas to Treat:
What areas can be treated with Subnovii?
The most popular areas to treat are around the eyes (both upper and lower), around the mouth, forehead, jawline, décolleté and neck. Because Subnovii can target very specific areas of concern, your provider may discuss combining with other aesthetic treatments.
How long does the treatment take?
The length of the procedure will depend on the area you are treating. This is an ‘in office’ procedure and you are able to head home after the treatment.
What post-care steps are required?
Every patient will receive specially formulated post-care products and instructions to keep the area dry to help with the healing process. It is important to use sun protection long after treatment.
When will you see results?
Results can be seen immediately after the treatment and beyond. You will see continued improvements for up to 6 months after your Subnovii procedure.
Who is a candidate for Subnovii?
Most individuals will be a candidate for this procedure; however, some skin types may be at risk of post procedure pigmentation issues. We will review all of this during your consultation and recommend the appropriate procedure for your skin type.
What should you expect after treatment?
Because the plasma device creates an instant wound on the skin, small scabs form that can take 5-10 days to fall off. The scabs are a natural and protective barrier to the magic taking place below. You will receive specially formulated post-care products and instructions to keep the area dry to help with the healing process.
Because the treatment area is immediately sealed, there is minimal risk of side effects. As the area heals, the skin may feel tight and itchy. Once the scabs fall off, the skin beneath may look pink. This is renewed skin and any redness should progressively fade. It is important to use sun protection long after treatment and incorporate this into your daily skin care routine.
