       Frequently Asked Questions

      Answers about subnovii plasma pen:


      The plasma pen should not be confused with human growth factors or a plasma blood treatment facial. Plasma with the Subnovii treatment refers to a stream of ionized gas.

      During treatment, the plasma pen converts energy into a stream of 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:

      • Peri-oral wrinkles (finelines and wrinkles around the mouth including marionette lines)
      • Nasolabial folds (smile lines or laugh lines)
      • Wrinkles around and between the eyes (including brow lines and crow’s feet)
      • Forehead lines
      • Heavy eyelids (eye bags or eye hoods on the lower and upper eyelid)
      • Sagging skin around the jawline (improves jowling)
      • Lose neck skin
      • Decolletege (skin laxity and wrinkles above the chest)
      • Scarring (including stretch marks and acne scars)

      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.2 However, individual experiences may vary.


      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. You should feel no discomfort during the treatment.


      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. 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.
