Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatment in Wilmington, NC

Finally see tighter skin, fewer fine lines, and no more creepy skin.

Do you dream of healthy, plump, young-looking skin? As you’ve aged, your body now produces less and less collagen. It’s a natural part of the aging process, and it’s also natural to desire the skin you had in your 20s. But what if we told you that it is possible to jolt your collagen production and soothe the effects of aging?

The Subnovii Plasma Pen Treatment is an innovative, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that accomplishes all of the above. United Medical & Aesthetics has been revitalizing the skin for 30 years in Wilmington, NC, so we’re delighted to offer this new revolutionary skin resurfacing procedure.

Subnovii Plasma Pen

The Subnovii Plasma Pen is a form of advanced plasma technology created by Cartessa™. The device looks exactly like a pen with a thin, fine needle tip at the end. It’s even held like a pen during treatment.

This advanced technology provides an FDA-cleared treatment and is formally known as plasma fibroblast therapy. You may also hear it termed plasma skin resurfacing or fibroblasts.

It works by delivering low-frequency energy from the tip of the device to rejuvenate the skin. This is NOT to be confused with plasma blood facials. A stream of ionized gas is the “plasma” that resurfaces skin tissue.


A low-frequency, patented wavelength and power combination creates an energy output that allows for extremely precise treatment applications.

Intense precision also means quick healing times and minimal redness or puffiness after the procedure.

The greatest benefit of getting a plasma skin resurfacing procedure is heightened collagen production. It triggers cellular renewal, tightening and toning skin in difficult-to-treat areas.

It also has the power to diminish scars and give the appearance of a non-surgical facelift.


Come have a chat with our friendly, professional team! All scheduled consultations will happen in person at our Wilmington, NC, clinic.

During your consultation, we will discuss your skincare goals and expectations. We’ll also describe the plasma skin resurfacing process, discuss the financial investment, and get you set up for the procedure.

Our specialist will then share with you how to prepare for your treatment. This includes all pre-treatment care and what to do on the day of treatment.

We are here to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have.


The Subnovii Plasma Pen non-invasive procedure requires numbing the treatment area for 45 minutes followed by prepping the skin surface with medical-grade alcohol.

We then hover our plasma device over the treatment area. The pen itself does not touch the skin.

Once treatment starts, the Subnovii Plasma Peen creates an arch of low-frequency energy mixed with gases on the skin surface to cause superficial thermal trauma.

This “micro trauma” causes neocollagenesis, which means new collagen and elastin form. You can expect a moderate improvement of fine and medium-depth wrinkles to difficult areas, such as around the eyes or lips.


Plasma skin resurfacing is especially useful to rejuvenate difficult areas under the eyes, laugh lines, and fine lines around the lips. But the Subnovii Plasma Pen procedure may be right for you if you’re looking for a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that improves:

  • Nasolabial folds (smile or laugh lines)
  • Forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Marionette lines
  • Brow lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Heavy eyelids
  • Sagging jawline skin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Upper-chest wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars

If you’re feeling frustrated with how your skin looks or feels, we recommend scheduling a consultation to see if plasma resurfacing is right for you.


Your journey toward tight, beautiful skin starts with an in-person consultation at our Wilmington, NC, clinic. You can schedule your consultation by calling (910) 226-0355 or by filling out our contact form. Our United Medical & Aesthetics team is excited to start this healing journey with you!
