Eye Plastic Associates is excited to offer a new service called Subnovii. Subnovii is a non-surgical advanced plasma treatment that helps tighten multiple areas on the face and neck, resulting in younger-looking skin. It delivers excellent results on crow’s feet, upper and lower eyelids, the forehead, the jaw and neckline, around the mouth, and on most other facial fine lines.
Subnovii works by delivering plasma energy directly into the skin. After an application of a numbing cream, the Subnovii plasma pen is used to deliver a fine point of ionized gas into targeted facial tissue. This creates a small, self-sealing wound that both immediately tightens the skin and stimulates the bodies fibroblast to make more collagen.
As with many other cosmetic procedures, the immediate results may look a little off-putting. You will have small brown dots on the treated area. These are the immediate tiny scabs that form to protect the rejuvenation taking place below in the dermis of the skin. These small scabs will fall off over 5–7 days on the face or 10–14 days on the neck. Some reduction in fine lines will be immediately apparent after the procedure, but improvement will continue for up to six months after treatment.
Subnovii is performed in the office as an outpatient procedure. Once the numbing wears off, your skin will feel almost like it has a sunburn. You should keep the area dry and out of the sun for 2-3 weeks and make sure to apply the aftercare cream provided by our office. The most important thing to remember is to not rub the dots on your face — we promise they’ll fall off on their own! When they do, the skin underneath will look pink, but the redness will fade.
Subnovii isn’t for everyone. Due to the risk of hyperpigmentation on dark and medium complexions, the procedure is only recommended on more fair-skinned individuals. If you’re not sure whether your skin tone is a good fit for Subnovii treatment, we’ll be glad to help you with an assessment.
If Subnovii sounds like a good fit for you, please call Eye Plastic Associates today to schedule a consultation. Younger-looking skin could be in your future.
