picture protocol (including a photo of the patient’s

Prior to treatment, topical anesthetic ointment is
applied to the treatment area for 1 hour and 15 minutes
and washed off followed by placing alcohol to the area
to ensure skin is thoroughly cleaned.
Contacts MUST be taken out when treating the eye area.
Subnovi Plasma Pen is used during treatment to deliver
precise pulses to the skin to stimulate your body’s natural
production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. It
takes advantage of the properties of plasma, ionized gas,
to sublimate the skin and create instantaneously sealed
wounds to tighten and clarify your skin.
✔ No contacts if treating eyelids, preferably come with glasses
✔ No makeup, make sure all eye makeup is removed including mascara
✔ One week of downtime is expected. Age, lifestyle and other environmental factors may contribute to the length of downtime experienced.

AFTERCARE, SKINCARE REGIMEN
& POST-TREATMENT CARE:
Subnovii After Care:
Area is to be kept dry after, avoiding any kind of moisture to the area- optimal results are only achieved by maintaining an undisturbed and DRY environment.
✔ Post procedure kits with materials to be used twice a day will be given to patients along with verbally being informed of post procedure care (ie: no rubbing of area, no exercise for at least 5 days (do not want to sweat while scabs remain on the face), avoid sun exposure 4 weeks after, avoid swimming, saunas, steam rooms, etc.
✔ Immediately after the treatment, skin should be treated with Subnovii Aftercare Cream and the Subnovii Downtime Reducer Powder.
✔ Each morning and evening (while scabs still present) apply a VERY THIN layer of Subnovii AfterCare Cream. Pat the cream on with clean fingers and do NOT rub or use a sponge. The downtime reducer powder should be used
on top of the cream to absorb any excess moisture (Patient can repeat is they feel skin requires moisturizing)
✔ Once all scabs have fallen off (approx. 10 days), refer to your provider’s recommendation for maintenance skincare
Post Treatment Care:
✔ Dry environment is necessary for optimal healing. This means no excessive sweating. avoid swimming, saunas, steam rooms, etc.
✔ After scabs have fallen off- SPF 50+ to area at all times, avoid sun exposure for 3 months to area and avoid extreme low temps for two weeks- if all of the previous is not followed, pigment deviation and dark spots may occur.
✔ Please note- depending on desired results- more than 1 treatment may be necessary however f/u treatments may only be performed 6 months after, as the previous as collagen fibers are still contracting and skin sensitive
✔ Plasma tight is a plasma fibroblast therapy (or plasma skin resurfacing) that delivers low-frequency energy to rejuvenate the skin. Subnovii is the first FDA-approved
handheld plasma device, and it uses an exclusive low frequency technology and energy to address the appearance of signs of aging. Plasma device creates an instant wound on the skin forming small scabs which can take 5-10 days to fall off. The scabs are a natural and protective barrier to the magic taking place below.
