It’s easy to say age is just a number, but until you’re fighting wrinkles and fine lines, and experiencing the loss of supple skin and your youthful glow, you won’t fully understand the miracle that is the NEWA home skin rejuvenation device. With the rise of a new breed of at-home skin care devices with anti-aging powers that work like a facial massage at home, it’s time we examine the essential clinical factors that make or break the experience, and give you younger-looking skin that’s here to stay – making age truly just a number.
NEWA and Skin Conditions
While you can use the NEWA home skin rejuvenation device on suntanned skin, having a sunburn should prevent you from using all at home skin care devices, including the NEWA. this is because your skin can be extremely sensitive and even red, and the NEWA uses heat energy to give your skin a restorative facial massage at home. Instead, wait until the redness and sensitivity have disappeared.
Likewise, you should always protect your skin when stepping out in the sun. While the use of at home skin care devices like the NEWA won’t make your skin more photosensitive as it already is, overexposure to sunlight can contribute to skin laxity, or the loss of youth-inducing collagen and elastin. The solution? Never head out without sunscreen!
Under no circumstances should you use the NEWA if you’re dealing with sores, blisters, or any other abnormal skin condition, as this can cause the condition to worsen, or permanently damage your skin.
Treatment of Skin Conditions
The NEWA is designed for home skin rejuvenation, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging – not conditions like Rosacea, moles, acne scars, cancerous lesions, warts, open sores, and others. Additionally, your NEWA device should not be used over red skin, or skin with enlarged capillaries.
You should also refrain from using your NEWA device on compromised skin. While its promise of a facial massage at home does a lot for natural skin rejuvenation, it’s not meant to treat more severe skin conditions like acne or eczema. For these, you will want to consult your dermatologist for treatments that will help clear up your skin before you can proceed with the NEWA anti-aging treatments.
Botox or Filler Injections
If you’re getting botox treatments or filler injections, it’s best to wait for 2 weeks before you use your NEWA home skin rejuvenation device as this gives your skin time to heal and recuperate from such invasive treatments.
Rapidly Aging Postmenopausal Skin
As the NEWA skin rejuvenation device gives you a facial massage at home, it can greatly help with aging skin as a result of menopause. The energy from the NEWA device rebuilds collagen from within to reduce your wrinkles, and lift and tighten skin that hormonal changes from menopause causes.
Mom and Baby
Pregnancy and breastfeeding are known to be contraindications to almost any treatment. When you are pregnant or nursing your newborn baby, your body goes through many hormonal changes that cannot be anticipated, and can affect the skin’s condition. As such, it’s important to avoid treatments that cause even more hormonal changes in your body, and wait until you’ve successfully weaned your baby off breast milk to proceed with the use of at home skin care devices. Instead, cherish this time for bonding – your NEWA device still has plenty of time to work wonders on your skin!
