Subnovii Plasma Pen
What is the Subnovii Plasma Pen?
Subnovii is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a “Plasma Pen” device to deliver surgery-like results. Also known as fibroblast therapy or fibroblasting, this treatment is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, diminish blemishes and scars, and tighten and smooth the skin to give it a more youthful appearance.
The Plasma Pen boosts the skin’s natural healing abilities by stimulating cells called fibroblasts that are present in the dermis layer of the skin. Fibroblasts produce collagen and elastin proteins, which give the skin its supple, plump, and healthy appearance. With age, the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin decrease, making the skin look tired and old. Fibroblast treatment with a Plasma Pen stimulates the production of growth factors, encourages the formation of new skin cells, and improves the skin’s suppleness and elasticity. The result is naturally rejuvenated skin that is younger, smoother, and tighter.
How does the Subnovii Plasma Pen work?
The Subnovii Plasma Pen emits a low-voltage current that creates a small electrical charge. The charge energizes the fine layer of plasma on the skin surface, which consists of natural gases emitted by the skin. The energy from the Plasma Pen delivers a small electrical shock to the skin tissue that stimulates fibroblast activity. This leads to the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Interestingly, the tip of the Plasma Pen does not touch the skin directly. Rather, it hovers over the skin surface. The voltage in the air creates the plasma charge that stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin.
What can the Subnovii Plasma Pen treat?
The Plasma Pen can be used to treat various parts of the body, the most common of which are around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead, jaw, neck, and decolletage. You can benefit from Plasma Pen treatment if you’re bothered by:
• Forehead lines and creases
• Drooping or misshapen eyebrows
• Heavy eyelids
• Excess skin in the undereye area
• Crow’s feet near the eyes
• Smile lines or smoker’s lines around the mouth and nasolabial folds
• Loose skin around the jawline
• Turkey neck or loose skin in the neck area
• Sunspots, skin tags, and other skin imperfections
• Stretch marks, acne scars, other scars
Am I a good candidate for the Subnovii Plasma Pen?
The Subnovii Plasma Pen is an effective treatment for all skin types. However, some people may be at greater risk of pigmentation problems after Plasma Pen treatment. Our aesthetic team will examine your skin and let you know whether Subnovii treatment is appropriate for you.
What to expect with a Subnovii Plasma Pen treatment?
The Subnovii Plasma Pen is an office procedure, and you can go home immediately after the treatment is completed. The duration of the treatment depends on the area being treated. Your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area about 30 minutes before the procedure.
During the treatment, the Subnovii Plasma Pen will be passed over your skin without actually touching it. The device will create tiny wounds in the skin to stimulate fibroblasts. The entire process is virtually painless.
Because the Subnovii Plasma Pen creates tiny wounds in the skin, post-treatment, small polka-dot scabs form on the skin. These are called carbon dust and can take 5-10 days to fall off naturally. The formation of the scabs is a good thing because they protect the treated area underneath.
The Plasma Pen treatment area can feel slightly itchy or tight during the healing process. There may also be mild swelling. After the scabs fall off, some pinkness may remain, which will fade gradually.
You will notice a progressive improvement in the treated area for three months after Subnovii Plasma Pen. The improvements can last for years; however, the aging process continues for all of us, and subsequent treatments may be required.
Is the Subnovii Plasma Pen effective?
Studies have shown that the Plasma Pen can increase fibroblast activity after the treatment, leading to an increased thickness of the epidermis (upper layer of skin) and deposition of new collagen. The Plasma Pen is thus effective in treating a variety of skin problems, including acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles, pigmentation, and loose or sagging skin. Studies have shown that Plasma Pen treatment can significantly reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation and noticeably improve skin smoothness. What’s more, a Plasma Pen treatment has a lower incidence of side effects compared to other skin rejuvenation techniques such as laser skin resurfacing.

Frequently Asked Questions
I thought plasma had something to do with blood. How does a plasma pen work?
Yes, plasma is a component of blood. But in the Subnovii Plasma Pen, the term plasma refers to a thin stream of ionized gas particles that are naturally present on the skin surface. The plasma pen charges these particles to create microscopic wounds in the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms, leading to skin rejuvenation.
Can the Subnovii Plasma Pen make me look younger?
The Subnovii Plasma Pen stimulates fibroblasts in your skin to increase the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. The result is smoother, tighter skin with a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and age-related blemishes. So yes, the plasma pen can give skin a more youthful appearance, but you should discuss your specific skin goals with our team to fully understand what you can expect from plasma pen treatment.
