A few weeks ago I shared with you my first impressions after one week of using the NEWA - Skin Rejuvenation Treatment. NEWA by HoMedics (£199) is a safe to use at home device which by delivering energy 3 layers deep into the skin reactivates your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen. More natural collagen means your skin is lifted and plumped up, and wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, face and neck are reduced. (Check my previous post for more details on how to use NEWA). The treatment should last around 12 weeks, the first 4 weeks NEWA needs to be used 5 times a week and then twice a week. I'm now during my 5th week of using it and I'm ready to share my further thoughts on the treatment.
As I already said before I don't have any deep wrinkles yet, just some fine lines under my eyes, on my forehead and smile lines. If you read my 1 week update you know that I was pleasantly surprised to see some subtle difference in the way my skin looked. After using the treatment for 5 weeks I don't see any dramatic improvement in my fine lines but they're certainly less prominent (although I'm guilty of not drinking enough water throughout the day and this contributes to lines being more visible unfortunately) and my skin looks certainly plumper, firmer and just more youthful. I have also noticed that my, usually quite big, pores are much tighter and this had to do with the skin producing more collagen, I'm extremely happy about it.
Would I recommend NEWA Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?
If you can afford the initial investment and you know that you are willing to commit to regular treatments then I think it's a fantastic addition to a skincare routine for any person who is starting to see some signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, sagging of the skin.
I will continue to use the device for another 6 weeks, twice a week, to keep my skin looking younger. After the 12 weeks of treatment the production of collagen is stimulated for up to 6 months, then I will repeat the treatment. Even though the differences in my skin are quite minimal I am all for preventing rather then treating. Also I think the older the person is and more pronounced wrinkles are the better the results might be.
The only little negative of the treatment is the price of the device and the fact that you have to spend about half an hour every time you do the treatment which might seem like a chore to some people. I found it actually quite relaxing and I always do it in the evening while catching up on some beauty YouTube videos, it's a win-win situation in my eyes :)
What are your thoughts on this kind of treatment? Would you be willing to invest your money and time in it?
