Subnovii Plasma Pen
Fibroblast Skin Tightening for Treating Wrinkles, Signs of Aging, and Scars
The Subnovii Plasma treatment 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 area. A sealed wound is created and shock delivered to the tissue below to stimulate fibroblast activity which stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The tip of the plasma device never actually touches the skin but it’s the power of molecular physics that gives this treatment its magic.
Surgical-like results with a non-invasive treatment
Fibroblast skin tightening or plasma pen technology is relatively new to the aesthetic industry in the U.S. but has been popular in Europe for quite some time. It’s quickly becoming the “go-to” nonsurgical treatment for the effective treatment of wrinkles, loose skin, and skin lesions.
The plasma energy lightly ablates the surface of the skin and stimulates your body’s own natural healing process. This process stimulates fibroblasts within the inner part of your dermis – the part of your skin responsible for creating collagen and elastin, or that supple and rubber band-like quality.
What are the results with Subnovii?
Many clients see results from Subnovii Plasma Pen skin tightening within a couple of days and then see a dramatic improvement to treated areas at six weeks. Full results are revealed in three to six months. Some clients may require up to 3 treatments to achieve the desired results.
Results are designed to last for up to three to five years, so the Plasma Pen treatment is more cost-effective and offers a much quicker recovery time than traditional surgical methods.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Subnovii?
The most popular areas to treat are around the eyes (both upper and lower), peri-oral (around the mouth), forehead, jawline, decollete 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’ll easily be you may headed home minutes after the procedure.
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?
Talk to you provider about whether a treatment with Subnovii is right for you. Some skin types may be at risk of post procedure pigmentation issues, so it’s important to talk with a licensed aesthetic provider.

What Should You Expect From Your Subnovii Treatment?
Because the plasma device creates an instant wound on the skin, small scabs will form that can take 5-10 days to fall off. The scabs are a natural and protective barrier to the magic taking place below. Because the treatment area is immediately sealed, there is a very low risk of side effects but the skin may feel tight and itchy as the area heals. Once the scabs fall off, the skin beneath may look pink. This is renewed skin and any redness should progressively fade.
