Treatment for Advanced Wrinkles in Santa Barbara with the Subnovii Plasma Pen
You may be diligent with your nightly facial serums and stay out of the sun. But even with immaculate skincare practices, wrinkles will still find you eventually. Aging is a natural part of life, but you can slow and control the process. We are excited to bring our patients one of the latest non-surgical treatments for stubborn wrinkles- the Subnovii Plasma Pen.
Unlike a traditional facelift, the Plasma Pen is entirely non-surgical. A revolutionary new concept for non-invasive skin lifting and tightening, this treatment is transforming skin through its innovative use of plasma technology. We think you’ll love this powerful device and the results it produces as much as we do.
What are the Benefits of the Subnovii Plasma Pen?
The Plasma Pen offers many exciting benefits to our patients, including:
- Smooths crow’s feet, marionette lines, forehead creases, and other stubborn facial wrinkles
- Tightens and revitalizes the upper and lower eyelids
- Improves the appearance of acne scars
- Tightens, smooths, and revitalizes the skin
Impressive results combine with minimal downtime to make this treatment an ideal choice for many of our patients. The Plasma Pen offers surgical quality results without surgical treatment.
What Is the Plasma Pen? How Does it Work?
The Plasma Pen uses an advanced combination of LF (low frequency) technology and plasma to create a dramatic skin transformation. Just like liquids, solids, and gasses, plasma is a type of matter. Plasma is similar to a gas but can conduct electricity. There is a thin layer of plasma across the surface of the skin. This device uses this plasma layer to transmit energy to the skin while stimulating fibroblasts to produce more collagen, the substance your body naturally makes to create tight, new, and youthful-looking, skin.
During the treatment, the specialized device is gently passed over the skin. We can treat the full face, if desired, or can focus your treatments on more specific facial areas.
Recovery After Plasma Pen in Santa Barbara: What to Expect
Downtime is minimal after a Plasma Pen treatment. You can return to work as soon as you’re comfortable, but most patients will appreciate a few days out of the office. For the first 5-7 days after treatment, redness, scabbing, and bruising are common. These side-effects are temporary and often resolve after a few days.
We’ll teach you how to care for your skin after your treatment. Our team is always available if you have questions or concerns during your recovery, so feel free to get in touch!

Plasma Pen FAQs
Am I a Good Candidate for Santa Barbara Plasma Pen Treatments?
The Plasma Pen is an exciting new option in your skincare arsenal, but this treatment isn’t right for every patient. We will conduct a full medical examination and assess your concerns to see if this procedure matches your goals. If it isn’t a good fit for you, we will happily recommend other treatments that may better suit your needs.
How Many Plasma Pen Treatments Will I Need?
The Plasma Pen’s powerful methods produce results in just one to two treatments. Maintenance treatments can be performed as needed (usually 1-2 times each year) to keep your skin looking and feeling youthful.
Can I Pair My Plasma Pen Treatment with Other Non-Surgical Treatments? What Procedures Do You Recommend?
Is the Plasma Pen Safe for All Skin Types?
The Plasma Pen is ideal for many skin types and colors. We typically recommend it for patients with light to medium skin tones, as patients with darker skin are more susceptible to pigmentation changes after treatment. If you have darker skin, we may suggest a different treatment option like the Hydrafacial to improve your skin’s appearance.
How Long Does a Typical Plasma Pen Treatment Take?
A typical session takes less than an hour. We know our patients are busy, and we work hard to ensure minimal waiting during your visits with us. Our average wait time before treatment is about 5 minutes, and we’ll make sure you’re in and out of treatment quickly. Many of our Plasma Pen patients schedule their procedure for their lunch breaks or at the end of the week. We can work with your schedule to find an appointment time that is convenient for you.
Is the Plasma Pen Painful?
We want you to have a comfortable treatment experience. We use a topical numbing or cooling cream before using the Plasma Pen on your skin. By preparing the skin before treatment, we can minimize discomfort during the treatment process. Most patients tolerate the procedure well with minimal discomfort. A pricking or slight burning sensation may be experienced while the device revitalizes your skin.
What Makes the Plasma Pen Different from Other Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatments?
There are many excellent non-surgical options for treating wrinkles and improving the skin’s appearance. Why should you choose the Plasma Pen? We love that this treatment offers dramatic results with minimal downtime. The advanced technologies used to create this device are some of the latest options available in aesthetic skincare. Few devices use plasma technology, a powerful force that can revitalize the skin by encouraging it to create more collagen.
