For erasing lines, lifting eyelids, and more.
Dr. Sholar is proud to offer Subnovii, a non-invasive treatment delivering surgical precision and results. The Subnovii Plasma Pen is a handheld tool that can diminish wrinkling, collagen loss, as well as skin sagging that occurs due to loss of collagen. The Plasma Pen is a non-invasive procedure as well as FDA approved. During the treatment, the Subnovii Plasma Pen uses fibroblast therapy which stimulates collagen production in the skin.
What is Subnovii Plasma treatment?
It effectively takes advantage of the fine layer of ionized gas, or plasma, that exists along the surface of your skin. Plasma devices emit energy that instantly sublimates a precise spot on the skin area. A sealed wound is created and shock delivered to the tissue below to stimulate fibroblast activity which stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The tip of the plasma device never actually touches the skin but it’s the power of molecular physics that gives this treatment its magic.
What areas can be treated with Subnovii?
The most popular areas to treat are:
- Around the eyes (both upper and lower)
- Peri-oral (around the mouth)
Who is a candidate for Subnovii?
Most patients will be a candidate for this procedure, however, some skin types may be at risk of post procedure pigmentation issues. Dr. Sholar will review all of this during your consultation and recommend the appropriate procedure for your skin type.
How long does the treatment take?
The length of the procedure will depend on the area you are treating. It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sholar to discuss your areas of concern and develop a treatment plan specific to you. This procedure is performed in office so you can head home immediately after treatment.
What post-care steps are required?
Every patient will receive specially formulated post-care products and instructions to keep the area dry to help with the healing process. It is important to use sun protection long after treatment and incorporate this into your daily skincare routine.
What to expect from Subnovii treatment?
Because the plasma device creates an instant wound on the skin, small scabs will form that can take 5-10 days to fall off. The scabs are a natural and protective barrier to the magic taking place below. Because the treatment area is immediately sealed, there is a very low risk of side effects but the skin may feel tight and itchy as the area heals. Once the scabs fall off, the skin beneath may look pink. This is renewed skin and any redness should progressively fade.
Results after Subnovii.
Results can be seen immediately after the treatment and will continue to improve for up to 6 months after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it referred to as a plasma pen?
The Subnovii Advanced Plasma Device is referred to as a pen simply because it is a handheld tool that looks like a pen. It is able to give results similar to surgery with no cutting!
What is plasma? I thought it had to do with blood?
This is a different plasma. There is blood plasma which we also utilize at Sobel Skin when we perform PRP scalp treatments to restore fullness and volume to your hair. This plasma is actually the fourth state of matter. The first 3 being gas, liquid and solid. Plasma is similar to a gas but conducts electricity. Plasma already exists along the surface of your skin and with Subnovii’s extremely advanced technology, it is able to convert the space between the tip of the pen and the patient’s skin into a plasma spark. It sounds like something from a Sci-Fi movie because it is that advanced and cool! The tip of the pen never even makes contact with the skin. This device is ergonomically superior and was actually crafted from lightweight materials used by NASA and Airbus.
How does Subnovii and the plasma technology make me look younger?
The Subnovii stimulates fibroblast activity which then stimulates collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. It also tightens and contracts the epidermis, resulting in firmer and more youthful 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.
Because it is a low frequency device does that mean Subnovii is not as powerful as other plasma pens?
No, not at all! Subnovii’s low frequency doesn’t mean low energy. In fact Subnovii energy provides more control resulting in more precise results with reduced healing time.
