The NEWA is a skin rejuvenating device, which is designed as an advanced, anti-aging system, and is powered by Endymed’s 3DEEP® technology. It’s a small handheld device that works by delivering controlled RF (radio frequency) energy deep into the skin. It contains a built-in motion sensor which monitors treatments and a temperature indicator for optimal collagen production.
The idea behind this technology is that instead of repairing only the surface of the skin, it penetrates deep into the dermal layer, reaching about around 3 layers deep. Once it reaches the dermal layer it stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, leaving the skin looking smooth and youthful.
On NEWA’s website, they claim their technology to be clinically proven to stimulate collagen growth in the skin and to tighten and lift the jawline, cheeks, and crow’s feet areas.
What Is RF Technology and What Makes 3DEEP Unique?
Radio Frequency (RF)  offers a non-surgical treatment to tighten the skin. It essentially sends out radio frequency energy deep throughout the skin and the cells which help to treat sagging skin and the early signs of aging in the forehead, neck, cheeks etc. This type of treatment is very popular for those who don’t want to go through a surgical procedure.
3DEEP technology  is a non-invasive skin tightening technology which has been clinically proven to tighten and improve body and facial contour. It’s been claimed to be the next generation of RF technology which provides painless heat to the skin and is specifically targeted to the deeper layers of the dermis.
What sets 3DEEP apart from regular RF technology is simply that it is less painful. Why is it less painful? Typical RF technology sends uncontrolled radio waves to a general area of the skin, which also requires the skin to be cooled after the process. This can be uncomfortable for the patient. 3DEEP offers a controlled  radio wave, targeting to a specific area, causing minimal impact on the skin, which means no cooling stage required, therefore no pain.
How to Use NEWA
Using the NEWA anti-aging system takes as little as 4 minutes. You simply put the activating gel onto the device and proceed to massage the selected area of the skin, working in circular movements. This mechanism is safe to use on your chin, jawline, cheeks, and the contours of your eyes.
As far as how often to use the NEWA device, the recommended use is around 3-4 treatments per week, over a period of 1 month.
Treatments can continue twice a week after the initial month is finished.

Is NEWA Technology Clinically Proven?
According to NEWA’s  clinical overview page, they claim to be backed up by extensive clinical research. They say their recent studies showed that:
- 90% of participants showed a reduction in wrinkles after just 4 weeks
- After the 4-week treatment period, Collagen continued to remodel for 3-6 months
- After only 12 week’s studies saw visible lift in the jawline
They claim the NEWA device helps you look younger in 30 days. If you scroll down to the bottom of their website page, close to where you see “terms and conditions,” you’ll see a claim of an additional study they took which showed an average increase of collagen production of about 3.82%. Along with that, they state that 89% of participants said their skin looked and felt tighter.
What Is Collagen and How Is It Made?
We can probably all guess that as we age, so does our skin. We often hear the term “collagen production” in a lot of anti-aging products and claims. It seems to be a “hot item” when it comes to the skin care industry. With the rise in pollution these days and an increase of exposure to harsh elements, it’s no secret that most people are looking for ways to reverse the signs of aging, or at the very least slow it down.
The moment we see that first wrinkle – or a host of new others, we suddenly start looking around for a suitable product to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. The skincare industry is booming with new anti-aging products hitting the market every day, from beauty gadgets to a plethora of gels, serums, and creams. Most claiming to bring you flawless skin, and increased collagen production - a solution to “turn back the clock” on your aging skin.
So, what is collagen exactly, and why does our body need it?
Collagen is in fact, a protein. A type of bonding glue for the whole body, which helps keep our joints and tendons supple. It’s what gives our skin elasticity and strength. You may have seen it as an ingredient in your skin care product, or even seen it in the supplement aisle. The body naturally produces it, and it can be found in our muscles, bones, skin, even in our  digestive system.
As we age, our body slowly stops producing collagen, and this is where fine lines, crow’s feet, and sagging skin start to appear. Adding a collagen supplement can be beneficial to our  health, and can slow down the early signs of aging.

The NEWA App
All too often we get excited about a new skincare regime, whether it’s a cleansing cream, an exfoliating brush, or a special serum. We diligently apply it to our skin for the first couple of days but then fail to continue due to forgetting or not having a simple reminder.
NEWA now has an app to go along with their skincare technology. It helps you track your progress, and personalize your treatment plan. It contains useful instructional videos, advice, tips on “how to use”, as well as FAQ’S.
Using the app isn’t an integral part of the system, but it may add some value. Being able to personalize a treatment, such as calculating your current level of collagen loss, and then creating a treatment plan based off that, offers a more successful treatment.
The app also helps you check out your progress, for instance, how much collagen you’ve produced this week, over a total of this many treatments.
If you’ve run out of gel it offers you an easy way to purchase more gels and serums directly from the app.
And lastly, it provides convenient reminders so you never forget a treatment.
