Subnovii Plasma Pen

Are you looking for a non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that provides surgical-like results? The Subnovii Plasma Pen is a powerful FDA-approved device that treats the most delicate areas and skin conditions. If you have extra skin around your eyes or neck, but aren’t ready for a facelift, neck lift, or eye surgery, Subnovii is an innovative technology that is effective at reversing the signs of aging.

What Is the Subnovii Plasma Pen?

Plasma skin resurfacing with the Subnovii Plasma Pen is a popular 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,” Subnovii creates a plasma stream of ionized gas to stimulate tissue remodeling and collagen production. This provides a natural appearance and results in younger, tighter, smoother skin.

Benefits of the Subnovii Plasma Pen

The Subnovii Plasma Pen improves your skin’s appearance, reducing the signs of sun damage and aging. It can also provide these benefits:

What Areas Can Be Treated with the Subnovii Plasma Pen?

The plasma pen can be used for smaller treatment areas on the body, with the face and neck being the most popular areas. Subnovii is most commonly used for:

How the Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatment Works

The Subnovii Plasma Pen releases a fine layer of ionized gas (plasma) along the surface of your skin that creates micro wounds. The controlled injury stimulates fibroblast activity below the surface of the skin. This process increases the production of collagen and elastin (proteins that give your skin structure) and hyaluronic acid (which maintains your skin’s moisture). This plasma resurfacing treatment offers a very targeted approach and leaves the surrounding skin unaffected. The tip of the plasma device doesn’t touch the skin, but it’s powerful in the low-frequency energy it delivers for tighter, younger-looking skin.

What You Can Expect During the Subnovii Plasma Pen Procedure

During the Subnovii treatment, we will run the device tip over the treatment area, allowing the plasma energy to penetrate the surface of your skin. You may experience some discomfort, but numbing cream makes the treatment very tolerable.As you receive treatment, you just sit back and relax! The average Subnovii treatment takes 60 minutes.

How to Prepare for the Subnovii Plasma Pen Procedure

We’ll provide instructions to prepare for your Subnovii treatment during your consultation. Preparation includes keeping the skin moisturized, drinking more water, and avoiding increased sun exposure.

Recovery After the Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatment

After your Subnovii treatment, you can resume normal activities immediately, but the treatment effects can be visible for 1-2 weeks. Your skin will look slightly pink and may be swollen after treatment. Small scabs will form that can take 5-10 days to fall off. This process is normal, and the tiny crusts serve as a protective barrier. Once your skin heals, your skin feels tighter and renewed. We’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions to maximize your results and ensure your healing.

Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatment Cost

The cost of the Subnovii treatment varies by patient and depends on your specific goals, the size of the area being treated, and the number of treatments needed. During your complimentary consultation at The Lumen Center, we’ll customize your treatment plan to your goals and discuss the specific price in detail.

Subnovii Plasma Pen Frequently Asked Questions

If you are healthy and have smaller bothersome areas showing signs of aging (wrinkles and sagging skin), you may be a good candidate for the Subnovii treatment. It’s perfect for anyone who is looking for an effective skin rejuvenation procedure to reveal a more youthful appearance. Plasma Pen treatments are not advisable for those with a history of keloids, poor scarring, or an active skin infection. During your consultation, we’ll answer your questions and address any concerns.

A Subnovii treatment is relatively quick and takes about an hour, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. During your consultation, we’ll discuss how much time you should allot for your appointments after evaluating your concerns and goals.

One treatment is typically all that is needed for most patients to reach their desired results. However, a repeat treatment may be necessary if you have considerable skin laxity and wrinkling. This follow-up treatment can be done 4 months after the previous treatment.

Subnovii plasma pen treatments are non-invasive, so there are no incisions. You may experience some discomfort, but numbing cream makes the treatment very tolerable. While the Subnovii treatment is gentle, you may feel slight sensations caused by the plasma making contact with the surface of your skin.

Results can last up to 3-5 years depending on certain habits (such as having adequate skin protection and good skincare) and the aging process.

While results vary from patient to patient, many experience tighter and smoother skin, leaving a glow and more youthful appearance. Most patients see results within a few days and noticeable improvement after six weeks. Full results can often be seen after 12 weeks. This treatment still works its magic as your tissues continue to contract and collagen regenerates long after treatment.
