What is Subnovii?

Subnovii is the first FDA-approved handheld plasma pen device. It uses an exclusive highly-controlled low frequency technology to target the signs of aging with minimal downtime. Subnovii is especially useful for hard to treat areas around the eyes, mouth, jaw, neck, and decolletage, and may be a treatment option for concerns resistant to injectables or other laser based treatments.

Subnovii Results

How does it work?

Often referred to as a collagen induction therapy treatment, plasma pen technology takes advantage of the fine layer of ionized gas, or plasma, that exists along the surface of your skin. Subnovii’s extremely advanced technology converts the space between the tip of the pen and the skin into a plasma spark. A sealed wound is created and heat is delivered below the skin to kickstart fibroblast activity, which induces collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid formation. This helps to restore the deep underlying structural support of the skin and increases volume where it has been lost due to aging – treating fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and small lesions in the process. At the surface, there is immediate firming and tightening after the treatment is complete due to the contraction of existing collagen. In short, Subnovii stimulates your body’s own natural healing response to treat the signs of aging without touching your skin, thereby producing surgery-like results without the downtime of surgery.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

The procedure may cause some minor discomfort but we have tools to make you more comfortable. We will apply a strong topical numbing cream prior to the treatment. For extra comfort we can additionally perform a quick nerve block to completely numb the area prior to the treatment. We will discuss all options with you during the consultation to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

This depends on the size of the being treated, but typically the Plasma Pen procedure takes around 20-40 minutes. Topical and/or nerve block will add on an additional 20-30 minutes.

Results can be seen immediately after the treatment and the effects are expected to stimulate collagen production activity for up to one year. Once new collagen is formed, it’s been shown to stick around for upwards of 15 years!

This depends upon your skin quality and treatment goals. Most patients are happy with one Subnovii treatment per area, but may desire another treatment down the road. Routine maintenance can help prolong results.

Redness, swelling and crusting are the most common side effects. The plasma pen creates an instant sealed wound on the skin that turns into small scabs that take 5-10 days to heal, but this can vary. The small scabs are a natural and protective barrier to the magic taking place below the surface. As the area heals, the skin may feel tight and itchy. Swelling post treatment is normal and will resolve within a few days. Once the area heals, the skin beneath may look pink. This is renewed skin and any redness will progressively fade. We will discuss all potential side effects, as well as pre and post care instructions during your consultation in order to help reduce side effects.

The Subnovii plasma pen should not be used if you have an active infection or inflammation at the site to be treated, or if you have a known allergy to an ingredient in the formulations. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have the treatment. Some skin types may be at risk for post-procedure pigmentation or scarring issues. Schedule a consultation with us to find out if Subnovii is the right treatment for your skincare goals.

Every patient will receive specially formulated post-care products and instructions to promote optimal healing. The key elements in the post-care process include keeping the area dry, allowing the scabs to flake off on their own without touching or interference, and avoiding UV exposure. It is important to use sun protection long after treatment.
