What is NEWA?
NEWA is an advanced anti-aging energy-based skin rejuvenation treatment for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and improved skin texture in the comfort of your own home.
How does NEWA work?
Collagen and elastin fibers are essential components of the skin which gives your
skin shape, lift and support. The collagen fibers are responsible for skin
strength and tone. The elastin fibers allow skin flexibility or
elasticity. With age, the amount of collagen & elastin fibers in the skin
decreases and the amount of production of new fibers slows down. These
structural changes cause the skin to loosen causing sagging skin and
wrinkles. NEWA, powered by Endymed’s 3DEEP ® technology,
penetrates controlled energy deep into the skin tissue, stimulating the
natural production of new healthier collagen and elastin formation.
Is NEWA safe to use?
Absolutely. NEWA uses clinically proven 3DEEP technology that is FDA approved. ENDYMED’s 3DEEP technology is used and recommended by leading dermatologists worldwide. The ENDYMED NEWA is an over-the-counter home use device intended for non-invasive treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for adult women with Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1-4.
What is the expected life-time of my NEWA?
The device is designed to last for years, depending on frequency of use. The advantage of the NEWA device over professional treatments is that you can use it at your convenience, and continue to use it even after the first boosting month so your results do not fade. It is a true, worthwhile long-term investment.
Do NEWA treatments hurt?
NEWA treatments are completely painless because NEWA focuses the energy delivery directly into the dermis, which is the lower layer of your skin, and does not affect the upper skin layer. NEWA treatments give you a pleasant sensation that feels like a comfortable warm massage.
Has the NEWA been dermatologist-tested?
Yes. The NEWA Wrinkle Reduction System is a revolutionary home skin treatment that uses professional 3DEEP technology that has already been proven effective in hundreds of thousands of Wrinkle Reduction treatments performed by dermatologists worldwide.
Does NEWA Cause fat loss?
No. There is often a concern of unintentional fat loss with radio frequency treatments but the reported case studies involved professional machines with a lot of RF energy at once. Our 3DEEP technology allows us to precisely target the dermis without going into the subcutaneous tissue.
Can I use the NEWA if I’m sunburned?
NEWA can be used on suntanned skin. However, if you have a sunburn and your skin is red and sensitive, avoid treatment with NEWA until the redness and sensitivity have disappeared.
Can I use NEWA if I have broken skin?
NEWA must not be used if you have sores, blisters or any abnormal skin condition.

Can you use NEWA between professional treatments like microneedling or laser peels?
Yes. See this blog post for more information on how.
Should I stay out of the sun after using the NEWA?
It is always recommended that you protect your skin when you go out in the sun. The NEWA skin tightening treatment will not make your skin more photosensitive than it already is, so this should not greatly impact your decision to go out into the sun. However, as over-exposure to sunlight can contribute to skin laxity, remember to be cautious in the sun and protect your skin.
How exactly is the NEWA clinically proven?
NEWA is powered by professional medical 3DEEP technology, which is FDA cleared and has been clinically proven and validated by over 40 clinical studies by independent and unaffiliated physicians. The NEWA itself underwent intensive clinical studies in order to receive FDA clearance, and continues to undergo extensive testing to ensure that we provide the most effective home use device for the reduction of wrinkles.
Can it help with rapidly aging post menopause skin?
NEWA can absolutely help with post menopausal skin! NEWA rebuilds skin collagen from within to reduce wrinkles, lift and tighten your skin, and will do wonders for your skin.
Why can’t you use NEWA while breastfeeding?
Pregnancy and breastfeeding are contraindication to almost all treatments (different technologies). It is a period characterized with hormonal changes that cannot be anticipated and it can affect the skin’s condition. Therefore to be on the safe side, we do not recommend to perform treatments during this period.
How often can I use the NEWA?

Can I use NEWA if I have internal metal fixtures in the mouth?
We recommend not using NEWA over metal fixtures to avoid possible discomfort.
RF 3DEEP Technology
What is 3DEEP technology?
3DEEP® radio frequency (RF) skin tightening is the most advanced generation in the evolution of radiofrequency-based technologies for professional RF skin tightening, RF lifting and rejuvenation, and RF wrinkle reduction treatments. It utilizes the gentle warming effects of naturally occurring, harmless radio waves and delivers the energy exactly where it is needed, deep in the dermal tissue to increase collagen formation. In RF facial rejuvenation, highly controlled multiple positive and negative electrodes work together, enabling precisely targeted energy delivery at the right level for safe and optimal radio-frequency skin treatment. The energy of the radio frequency skin treatment device is directed vertically into the deep dermal tissue so that there is no problem of overheating or damage to the surface skin. 3DEEP RF lifting technology keeps the skin surface relatively cool while achieving the deep-skin heating necessary to optimize production of new collagen through radio frequency skin treatment.
Why is NEWA better than other RF home use treatments?
The NEWA is the only device that uses innovative 3DEEP RF technology. This unique RF technology uses 6 RF generators with different polarities. The result is effective deep volumetric heating in the depth of the tissue with decreased heat on the surface. Using other RF technologies would require external cooling (Monopolar) or will be superficial (bipolar). NEWA is the worlds first home use device FDA cleared for wrinkle reduction.
How can that small device produce RF?
NEWA is powered by the same unique and patented 3DEEP radiofrequency technology that powers our professional RF treatment platforms used by physicians and clinics worldwide. We took our professional 3DEEP technology and adapted it for our NEWA home use device.
How can you rebuild collagen?
The gentle heat generated by the NEWA is delivered down deep into the dermis layer of the skin, where collagen is produced. NEWA heats up the dermis to the right temperature to stimulate the production of new collagen fibers.
What is the RF current level on the device? How strong is it?
The NEWA’s energy output is 10W.
Why is NEWA different than creams?
Cosmetic skincare products are most effective at working on the epidermis, the outer layers of skin. NEWA, however, penetrates energy deep into the dermal layers of the skin where new collagen and elastin fibers actually form and stimulates the natural production of new fibers.
Retin A is also proven to stimulate collagen. Which is more effective?
Retin-A works essentially stimulates new collagen by acting as a surface exfoliate (a type of microdermabrasion). It stimulates the cells to turn over and form new collagen, and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. On the other hand, NEWA sends energy deep into the dermis layer of the skin, heating it to the right point that stimulates the dermis to produce new collagen, which in turn both reduces wrinkles while lifting and tightening the skin. NEWA provides both an immediate effect on the skin and a long term effect, with no side effects or downtime after treatments. Retin-A, as a strong topical cream, also may have potential side effects, including rashes, redness, and skin flaking.
