Subnovii™ Plasma Pen
Collagen is an essential building block of healthy, youthful skin. Unfortunately, as we age, we gradually lose collagen, leaving delicate areas such as the eyelids looking lax and wrinkled. One way to combat this loss of collagen is to stimulate new production with the Subnovii Plasma Pen for skin tightening at our Houston, TX, med spa.
What Is the Subnovii Plasma Pen?
It’s not a laser, an injectable, or a surgical procedure. The Subnovii Plasma Pen is a handheld device that converts oxygen and nitrogen into an arc of plasma energy that extends from the tip of the pen to the surface of your skin.
Skin Analysis With VECTRA® & VISIA®
There’s more to your skin than meets the eye. These advanced skin imaging cameras reveal sun damage, uneven texture, underlying pigmentation issues and more. Get an in-depth look at your skin’s health and compare your scans over time to see your improvements come to life.
How Does the Subnovii Plasma Pen Work?
The heat from the plasma energy creates a matrix of tiny, sealed micro-injuries that look like small, dark dots. This triggers a wound-healing response, causing the fibroblasts in your skin to produce additional collagen, resulting in tighter, firmer, younger-looking skin.
What Does the Subnovii Plasma Pen Treat?
The Subnovii Plasma Pen is ideal for treating signs of aging related to collagen loss, especially in small areas that are difficult to treat effectively with microneedling. Common treatment areas include:
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet, droopy upper eyelids, wrinkled lower eyelids)
- Around the mouth (smoker’s lines, marionette lines)
- Neck lines
How Are Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatments Performed?
At the beginning of your treatment, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable. After allowing the cream to take effect, he or she will then use the small, pen-shaped device to create a series of microchannels in your targeted area. The treatment can be adjusted to be lighter or more aggressive depending on your goals.
What Is Recovery Like After a Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatment?
After your treatment, you’ll notice a matrix of dark dots across your treated area. These tiny scabs will naturally flake off after 5 to 14 days. You may also experience some swelling or redness during this time, and you’ll need to avoid excessive sun exposure. Your provider will give you instructions for caring for your skin as it heals.
How Many Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatments Will I Need?
Many people see good results after just a single treatment. However, if you would like to enhance your results, we can perform additional treatments after about 3 months.
