The Cartessa® Subnovii™ Plasma Pen

Fibroblast skin tightening or plasma pen technology is relatively new to the aesthetic industry in the U.S. but has been popular in Europe for quite some time. It’s quickly becoming the “go-to” nonsurgical treatment for Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists alike for the effective treatment of wrinkles, loose skin, and skin lesions.

What is a Plasma Pen or Fibroblast Treatment?

Plasma Pen technology targets deep-set creases, areas of loose skin, as well as scars and small lesions by heating the skin with a small electrical charge. Surprisingly, the device never touches your skin directly – it uses the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gasses emitted from your skin to form a plasma charge. 

The plasma energy lightly ablates the surface of the skin and stimulates your body’s own natural healing process. This process stimulates fibroblasts within the inner part of your dermis– the part of your skin responsible for creating collagen and elastin, or that supple and rubber band-like quality.

What Can the
Subnov ii Plasma Pen Treat?

Areas that can be effectively treated with the plasma pen are:

  • The under eyes and excess upper eyelid skin
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Skin imperfections – skin tags and sunspots
  • Acne scars, stretch marks, and other scars
  • Loose skin on the abdomen 
  • Nasolabial folds and smile lines
  • Jowls & Jawline tightening
  • Forehead lines & creases
  • Brow lifting and shaping
  • Neck lines or “turkey neck”
  • “Smoker’s lines” around the mouth

Why Are Fibroblasts Important?

As we age, collagen and elastin production in our body starts to decrease – even at the young age of 20, the dermis layer of our skin is producing 1% less collagen every year that we age. When you stimulate these fibroblasts, they spring into action – repairing tissue damage and recreating collagen. 

Fibroblast treatment can:

  • Encourage the formation of a new skin surface
  • Improve the elasticity and suppleness of the skin
  • Stimulate the production of your own human growth factors

Benefits of the Plasma Pen

Some of the best aspects bout having a Subnovii treatment are:

  • No needles – an injectable anesthetic is not required
  • No cutting, piercing, or open wounds on the skin
  • No stitches or scars to cover with dressings 
  • Very low risk with minimal downtime
  • Long-lasting results
  • Fast healing time

What is a Subnovii Treatment Like?

Roughly 45 minutes after a topical numbing cream is applied, the Subnovii handheld tool is passed over the treatment area slowly, hovering just over your skin. Small pulses of energy create tiny wounds in the skin, leaving behind small polka dot-like scabs (also known as “carbon crusts”) that fall off in roughly 5-10 days. You may feel some heat in the area; however, the treatment is comfortable and very tolerable. Some mild swelling can be common in the area immediately after treatment and may last for a few days.

I was amazed as soon as I stepped in. Extremely friendly all while maintaining professionalism. It was my first time and they were very thorough with explaining the steps and what to expect with the lip fillers I wanted. They had me feeling like I was on top of the world with endless compliments and small talk. They turned my lips from being my biggest insecurity to now being my favorite thing to show off!
