Plasma Isn’t Just for Science Fiction

Effects of ageing, frown scowl lines If you’re an avid science fiction reader or a gamer who plays a lot of Halo or Metroid Prime you’ve probably heard of a plasma beam. This is the weapon of choice in these stories. Or you may have come across plasma beams with supernovas in astronomy.

Dr. Smith has other uses for plasma in mind, namely improving your skin with a new treatment known as Subnovii Plasma.

What is Subnovii Plasma?

These innovative treatments that Dr. Smith has added to his Okatie practice take advantage of the fine layer of ionized gas (plasma) that exists along the surface of our skin. Plasma devices emit energy that instantly sublimates a precise spot on the skin. A sealed wound is created and shock delivered to the tissue below. This energy triggers the wound-healing response in the skin that is sought after in many cosmetic treatments. The reaction here is to stimulate fibroblast activity, which instantly remodels the collagen at the treatment sites, but then also triggers the production of new amounts of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These work to improve the skin from within.

You may not have paid the ultimate attention in your high school physics class, but Subnovii Plasma puts the power of molecular physics to work improving your skin without the tip of the Subnovii Plasma Pen actually ever touching your skin.

What areas can be improved with Subnovii Plasma?

At Smith Plastic Surgery, we’ve found these to be the most popular areas for treatment with Subnovii Plasma:

  • Peri-oral (around the mouth)
  • Around the eyes
  • Forehead
  • Jawline
  • Décolleté
  • Neck

What happens after a Subnovii treatment?

Because the Subnovii Plasma Pen creates an instant wound on the skin, small scabs will form afterwards. These can take from 5 to 10 days to fall off. It’s important for you to let this process run its course and to not pick or impact these scabs. They are acting as a natural, protective barrier to the skin improvement mechanisms taking action beneath the skin surface.

Your skin will likely feel tight and somewhat itchy as the area heals. Otherwise, these are very low-risk treatments using the plasma energy that always exists on your skin.

Interested in improving your skin with plasma energy? No, you don’t need to call Bones from Star Trek. Call Dr. Smith instead at (843) 705-8940 and set up a consultation for Subnovii Plasma treatment.
