A few weeks ago, a group of us bloggers were invited to a ladies lunch to launch an exciting new product. NEWA – an at home skin rejuvenation system
So how does it work?
The Newa directs precise amounts of heat into the dermas layer of your skin. This immediately tightens your skin and triggers productions of new collagen with long-term results.
What areas can you treat?
You can only use the machine on certain areas of your face. The upper cheek, lower cheek and under your chin and jawline. I really wanted to use it on my forehead but was told the machine is only designed for those specific areas.
How do you use it?
The machine has a timer on it – 4 minutes per area. Once you’ve applied the activating gel on the metal prongs, you position it on your face, flick the switch on and rub in a circular motion for 4 minutes on each area, until the timer automatically turns off. The automatic timer was one of my favourite features.
How often do you use it?
The results will be most effective if you use the machine 5 times a week for one month. They also suggest to use it regularly once or twice a week for maintenance.
How does it feel?
It feels like a very warm and deep face massage. Quite pleasant but sometimes can get a little hot. You can switch to a lower setting if the heat is too strong. After 15 days, my skin felt more tight and looked even better after 30 days of use.
Any side effects?
You must follow the instructions carefully! It’s quite easy to use. Immediately after use, your face may look a little red like you’ve just stepped out of a hot shower. Nothing to worry about as it goes away quite quickly.
A few other points I’d like to make…
This is quite a commitment! You’ll need to be prepared to use the machine regularly for the recommended duration. I found this quite challenging. At the end of my long day, chasing after two little children, I just wanted to hop into bed but had to make time to use the Newa. I only used the machine on the upper and lower parts of my cheek and skipped under the jaw to save time. I found rubbing along the underneath of my jaw a little uncomfortable as it’s quite boney. All up it took 24 minutes of face rubbing followed by washing off the activation gel. I must admit the gel smelt really nice!
Newa claims to reduce wrinkles by up to %45 and make your skin feel tighter and more radiant looking. I did feel and see a difference after my 30 day trial, so overall, I’m impressed with how this pain-free and safe too use hand held machine works. Also, the system retails at $499 so it’s an economical alternative to salon treatments.
