Experience the plasma difference with your next skin rejuvenating care appointment. The Subnovii Advanced Plasma treatment is the first FDA-approved handheld plasma device to treat signs of aging. Although there are many devices on the market, Subnovii is the only one to utilize LF+ technology to increase the comfort and safety of patients. Gilpin Facial Aesthetics is proud to utilize this tool as part of a lineup of a full-range treatments and equipment.
What is the Subnovii Advanced Plasma Technology?
The Subnovii Plasma Pen delivers precise pulses to the skin to stimulate your body’s natural production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. It takes advantage of the properties of plasma, ionized gas, to sublimate the skin and create instantaneously sealed wounds to tighten and clarify your skin. Subnovii is highly effective in treating skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scars on a variety of areas on the face and head.
What Areas can be Treated with Subnovii?
The most popular treatment areas are specific problem areas on the face or neck, including:
- Around the eyes
- Around the mouth
Because Subnovii targets highly specific areas, you may be able to use it in tandem with other aesthetic treatments. Your skincare specialist will discuss all your options in your initial consultation.
What Should I Expect from Subnovii?
Almost anyone is an eligible candidate, although some skin types may experience complications that will make certain people ineligible for Subnovii treatment. The procedure itself is an in-office procedure and requires little post-treatment care. Follow the instructions given by your skincare specialist for preparation and post-treatment products.
The length of time a Subnovii treatment lasts depends on which and how many areas you are getting treated. You will see the results immediately after treatment, although the tiny wounds that the pen makes will create small scabs that will fall away within 5–10 days. Once the scabs are gone, you may notice your skin is pink and tender, which is a sign of renewed skin, and the redness will fade over time.
Schedule Your Consultation
Schedule a consultation with a Gilpin skincare specialist to find out if Subnovii can help you erase the signs of aging. Because it is a non-invasive, non-chemical treatment, almost anyone is a candidate for Subnovii.
How Does Subnovii Work?
Plasma is the fourth state of matter after gas, liquid, and solid. It is an electrically charged gas that behaves much differently than non-charged gas. The Subnovii plasma pen converts the gas between the tip of the pen and your skin into a plasma spark with each pulse. The result sublimates your skin that your body begins working to restore immediately, stimulating the production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid that makes skin firmer and more youthful.
When Will I See Results?
You will notice results immediately after the Subnovii procedure, although because the procedure involves creating and instantly sealing wounds, your results may differ slightly from first glance.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Although you will see results immediately after treatment, it can take 5–10 days for any scabs to fall off and reveal the renewed layer of skin underneath. Subnovii is a low-risk procedure, although side effects such as itchy or tight skin have been reported. Follow any and all of Dr. Gilpin’s instructions for post-treatment care, including the use of sunscreen long after treatment.
