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).
