In this week’s post, we’re taking a look at how to use your NEWA radio frequency device with in-office services like Botox, filler, microneedling, laser, and chemical peels. If you see a provider, this is your guide to correctly using NEWA at home to enhance these treatments.
If you’re not someone who sees a professional then not to worry, NEWA is effective on its own and you can instead read our other blog posts here.
This blog isn’t intended to be medical advice. Please speak to a medical provider for specific advice on your skin and treatments.
NEWA and In-Office Visits
Our customers are diverse with different needs and approaches toward aging.
We have customers who are using NEWA preventatively to maintain collagen levels in the skin as well as customers who are looking to address existing signs of aging. Some of you prefer to stick to at-home options while others combine their daily routines with in-office intervention. There is no right or wrong answer, just what works for you.
If you’re someone who does see a provider for professional services though, you may be interested to know that NEWA can help enhance or maintain results. We’ll be discussing which treatments NEWA complements, which ones can be maintained by using NEWA between visits,, and how to coordinate NEWA treatments around in-office appointments.
Preparing for an Appointment
Always inform your provider of any medications, skincare, or home treatments you’re doing when scheduling your appointment. This blog post and other information on our site never supersedes advice from your medical provider.
Unless your provider says otherwise, you should skip your NEWA treatment the day of the appointment. Upon arriving, feel free to mention that you’re using a home radio frequency device and ask if they have any specific instructions based on the treatment you’re getting.
You’ll then wait to resume NEWA until your skin is fully healed. This can vary by the service offered so keep reading for more information and some general guidelines.
When to Resume NEWA
Please note, these are general guidelines. If your skin is still healing, wait longer. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to reach out to your provider and NEWA Customer service.
Never use NEWA on broken skin, active acne, or skin that is otherwise damaged or irritated.
When you can resume NEWA treatments:
Botox and other injectable neurotoxins
Superficial 1-3 days
Deep 7-10 days
Superficial 7-10 days
Medium to Deep 2-3 weeks
Threads, mesotherapy, and others
Discuss with your provider
Enhance with NEWA
Want to help maximize your treatment outcomes? Use NEWA alongside these in-office services.
NEWA works by targeting the dermis of the skin and triggering skin remodeling for new collagen and elastin formation. It can be helpful to go in for a series of chemical peels (or ablative laser) as they can help resurface sun damage and improve the top layer of the skin while NEWA works in the deeper skin.
Botox works by making it so that the facial muscles don’t get the signal telling them to contract. This makes it great for dynamic wrinkles which are caused by repetitive muscle movements. Botox doesn’t work well for static wrinkles though and this is why NEWA can be helpful if you’ve still got fine lines present when your face is at rest.
Hyaluronic acid based fillers are primarily used to restore volume to the face as facial fat pads lose volume and support with aging. While research is still preliminary, there is some evidence that suggests improving the skin with radio frequency first can improve patient outcomes.
Maintain with NEWA
In addition to complementary treatments, NEWA can also be used at home to maintain results from similar treatments that work by inducing collagen production.
NEWA can always be used by itself but some of our customers want results faster or purchase NEWA because they want to be able to go in-office less and save time and money.
Here are some treatments that you can maintain at home with NEWA once the skin has healed:
