Does the smell of your sweaty armpits cause you to dress in bulky layers so no one has to endure the smell, including you? Modern medicine has an answer for you.
Get ready for the revolution in skin rejuvenation: plasma medicine. It’s a new treatment approach that uses the properties of physics and applies them to medicine.
You may have thought there were three states of matter: liquids, solids, and gases. Now there’s a fourth: plasma. Plasma medicine technology delivers heat through low-frequency plasma energy. Plasma used in med spas is called “cold plasma” because it’s created at moderate temperatures just above room temperature.
Dr. Kenneth Thompson and our medical aesthetics team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa are using the Subnovii Plasma Pen™ for skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, and areas of the body. It’s a patented handheld device.
The Subnovii Plasma Pen emits a spark of plasma gas about one millimeter above your skin. When we hold the pen held near your body, it stimulates your skin to create new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid by creating microwounds.
This process is similar to microneedling, but without needles. It also makes your epidermis — the outer layer of your skin — contract, so your skin is firmer in places where it started to sag.
One of the many benefits of the Subnovii Plasma Pen is its versatility. The handheld device in the hands of a skilled provider trained in its use can improve the appearance of the skin on just about any body part.
On your face and neck, we can address many areas and skin problems:
Subnovii Plasma Pen also works on stretch marks on your abdomen and other skin lesions.
The versatility of the pen is certainly one of its benefits. Here are some additional benefits of the Subnovii Plasma Pen:
The Subnovii Plasma Pen is safe. It is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for aesthetic use. It’s also used in a variety of other applications such as sterilizing and disinfecting medical equipment and implants.
If you don’t like needles, blood, and stitches and want to avoid the lengthy recovery of a surgical facelift, the Subnovii Plasma Pen is an excellent alternative. It’s a noninvasive medical grade aesthetic treatment.
Surgical facelifts require weeks of recovery. A recent journal article noted that the Subnovii Plasma Pen requires less downtime, as one of many benefits of a nonsurgical blepharoplasty (removing excess skin fat on the upper and/or lower eyelids).
In addition, the research notes that there is reduced risk of damage to muscles under and around the eyelids and less risk of scarring than with a surgical blepharoplasty.
In one small study, patients said there was a 68% improvement in their facial appearance. In addition, treatment with the Plasma Pen is much longer-lasting than Botox® or most injectables — as much as a year to three years or longer.
This aesthetic treatment works for many of our clients, but not everyone. We let you know whether you’re a good candidate. If this treatment isn’t appropriate, we recommend another that’s right for you.
