Plasma skin resurfacing with the Subnovii Plasma Pen is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that reduces fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes scars, acne 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.
BENEFITS OF THE PLASMA PEN FACIAL
HOW DOES THE PLASMA PEN WORK?
During treatment, the plasma pen converts energy into a stream of ionized gas consisting of oxygen and nitrogen known as plasma. The plasma stream causes a micro wound in the skin. 'This micro trauma' triggers a natural healing response by stimulating fibroblast activity deep within the dermis. Increased fibroblast activity stimulates cell regeneration and the production of collagen. Simultaneously, thermal energy from the plasma stream heats the skin's connective tissue, causing it to contract or tighten.
Subnovii treatments can be performed anywhere on the body. However the face and neck are the most popular treatment areas. Fibroblast therapy is especially effective at targeting smaller treatment areas, such as the area between the eyes, the eyelids, or the area above the lip.
Fibroblast therapy is clinically shown to improve the following:
WHEN CAN I EXPECT RESULTS?
Plasma pen results are both immediate and progressive. Many patients notice tighter skin within the first week after their treatment. Progressive results, such as improved smoothness and added firmness are typically seen 3 months after the treatment. Improvements can last for up to three years. However, individual experiences may vary.
DOES THE PLASMA PEN HURT?
To ensure your comfort, treatments are performed using local anesthetic. You will not be put to sleep. The local anesthesia will numb the treatment area only. During the treatment we will apply the Sub Z chilling machine that blows cold air directly on the skin to minimize any discomfort. You should feel no discomfort during the treatment.
IS THERE DOWNTIME?
Your face may appear red and inflamed for a week after your treatment. However, downtime is minimal and you may return to work the day after your procedure, however we do recommend between 1-2 weeks downtown until scabs have completely fallen off. While the skin heals, you may experience redness, swelling, flaking, and/or scabbing. Ice packs and over the counter medication may be used to decrease post-treatment discomfort. Verbal and written post care insructions will be provided to the patient.
