What is Subnovii?

Subnovii is the most advanced plasma technology available at present. It is FDA-cleared and the first plasma device that uses low-frequency (LF) technology — a patented wavelength and power combination. This exclusive energy output allows for more precise applications and reduced healing time.

The Subnovii Plasma Pen is the most advanced and non-invasive skin tightening, lifting, and skin rejuvenation method to treat sagging, wrinkles, and dull or uneven skin tone. The Plasma Pen is the latest device used to perform fibroblast therapy, stimulating collagen production in the skin.

How does Subnovii work?

Subnovii plasma energy device uses patented LF technology to tighten skin and minimize the appearance of:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Benign lesions on the neck, face, and décolletage

The small, handheld device is the first plasma tool on the market with LF technology. Its internal control system ensures a consistent level of energy. Size and functionality allow precise treatment and minimize healing time, even in delicate areas around the mouth and eyes.

Subnovii emits energy that interacts with the thin plasma layer along your skin's surface. This energy penetrates the surface of your skin and triggers a healing response in cells called fibroblasts, which go into overdrive in their production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. Also called fibroblasting, this treatment rejuvenates the skin from the inside out.

What is the recovery like for a Subnovii treatment?

The average recovery time with Subnovii is 7-12 days, depending on the treatment's aggressiveness.

Don’t exercise right after treatment because any steam, sweat, or heat could add to the inflammation. Ideally, you want to avoid excessive sweating for 7-10 days during your healing process.

How long do Subnovii results last?

Some patients feel the skin tightening within the first week or two after Subnovii treatment as existing elastin and collagen fibers firm up. Each person is unique, and you may need a series of treatments to see desired results.

Results last 1-3 years*. At that point, you might need a follow-up treatment to maintain optimal results. Continuing a good skincare regimen, including wearing sunscreen to protect your skin, is essential.
