Subnovii plasma

What is Subnovii plasma?

Subnovii plasma is a treatment that stimulates certain cells in the dermis called fibroblasts. These cells are responsible for producing collagen and proteins that support your skin’s structure, tightness, and firmness. They also help your skin heal after injuries. 


As you age, the fibroblasts’ production of collagen declines. Treatment with Subnovii plasma can boost the production of collagen to increase your skin’s firmness and tightness.


The Subnovii plasma pen is the device your provider at A Beautiful You Medical Spa uses for the treatment. They hold the pen near your skin as it releases a targeted high-frequency electrical current, creating controlled injuries on your skin. As a result, your fibroblasts must begin repair by producing more collagen. 

What does Subnovii plasma treat?

Subnovii plasma can treat various features, usually associated with aging, around your eyes and eyelids. After treatment, you’ll see improvements in:


  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles 
  • Fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Scars, including acne scars
  • Seborrheic keratosis
  • Crepey skin
  • Eye bags


By tightening and firming the skin around your eyes, you can look more awake, alert, and youthful. Your provider at A Beautiful You Medical Spa helps you maintain the results for as long as possible. 

What should I expect during a Subnovii plasma treatment?

Before your Subnovii plasma treatment at A Beautiful You Medical Spa, you should come in for a consultation with a provider. They ask about your goals and make sure they align with the treatment’s abilities. They also ask about your current health to ensure the procedure is safe for you.


Before your procedure starts, your provider cleans your skin and applies a topical numbing cream across the treatment area. You’ll have to wait for about 30 minutes as the numbing cream takes effect, then the procedure can begin. 


Your provider uses the Subnovii plasma pen to create small dots with its electric current. Those dots look similar to scabs, but they’re very tiny. Once the procedure is complete, your provider applies a soothing cool gel over the skin that minimizes any burning or tingling. 


You can expect the small scabs to fall off about a week after your Subnovii plasma procedure. As your skin heals over several weeks, you’ll note that the skin around your eyes becomes tighter and firmer than before.
