New at home technologies like the Newa, which is a new generation of skin tightening radiofrequency technology, enables patients and consumers to achieve rejuvenation of the face without going into a doctor’s office..."
Caesarea, Israel (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
The Journal of Drugs in Dermatology has published in its November issue a study performed by Neil S. Sadick MD, Yoram Harth MD, Hanna Levy PhD, and Avner Shemer MD, which evaluates and scientifically establishes the efficiency and safety of the Newa Skin Rejuvenation device, a multisource phase-controlled radiofrequency home use device developed by EndyMed Medical that reduces wrinkles and tightens and rejuvenates facial skin.
The study published in the JDD this month enrolled 69 participants within the range of 37 – 72 years of age. The participants were provided with the Newa device, together with a user manual and treatment diary, to perform independent treatments at home for 4 weeks. Participants were instructed to perform at least 5 treatments a week for one month. Four follow-up visits were scheduled once a week during the period of independent treatments at home, followed by a 1 month follow-up visit one month after the treatment end, and 3 months follow-up after the end of treatments. Thorough photographic analysis of pre- and post treatment images of the participants measured against the Fitzpatrick Wrinkle and Elastosis Scale was performed by 3 impartial board certified dermatologists. The results of the study revealed a significant improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity. Moreover, the participants reported high overall satisfaction with the Newa treatment experience with no side effects or discomfort.
The majority of the study participants stated that they were very satisfied from the results of their Newa treatments. Data taken from the satisfaction questionnaire shows that 86% of participants were satisfied with the Newa device, 93% were satisfied with the safety of performing wrinkle reduction treatments with the Newa, and 90% were satisfied with the ease of the Newa treatments.
Professor Neil Sadick of the Weill Medical College at Cornell University, New York, stated that “New at home technologies like the Newa, which is a new generation of skin tightening radio frequency technology, enables patients and consumers to achieve rejuvenation of the face without going into a doctor’s office or as a maintenance for treatments done in a physician’s setting."
According to Dr. Harth, "Our analysis of the study results showed continued improvement in wrinkle reduction and skin tightening at the 3 month follow-up visit. This indicates that the Newa treatments successfully initiated the natural collagen remodeling process in the skin, which continued well after the treatments were completed."
There have been two previous home use devices that were subjected to clinical study in a controlled setting: one fractional laser device and one tripolar radiofrequency device. However, these studies only tested the effectiveness of the perioral and periorbital areas. This current Newa study is the only home use device study that tested for full face wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.
The demand for non-invasive, long-lasting wrinkle and skin tightening treatments has grown dramatically over the past few decades, and new aesthetic technologies have been used to meet this demand. The main cause of aging skin and wrinkles is the natural reduction and break down in the quantity and quality of the collagen found in the skin as we age.
The first generation of home use devices emitted low intensity red or infrared light or bipolar radiofrequency energy, and delivered only modest improvement in wrinkle reduction or skin texture due to the superficial penetration of energy to the skin. The use of laser based fractional home use devices, recently cleared for treatment of periorbital wrinkles, is frequently limited by small treatment areas, pain, and skin type. The Newa, representing the next generation of home use treatment devices, is not limited by treatment areas. The Newa has been proven effective for full face wrinkle reduction, and provides a safe, pain free and pleasant treatment experience.
Radiofrequency-based treatments have been shown to be clinically effective as a non-invasive treatment technology to reduce wrinkles and tighten skin on the face, neck, and body. EndyMed Medical, one of the premier developers of radiofrequency aesthetic treatment systems, utilizes its innovative 3DEEP® radiofrequency technology within its treatment systems. Unlike most radiofrequency technologies that use just 1 radiofrequency generator in their systems, EndyMed's 3DEEP technology uses a unique system of 6 RF generators that provides the most effective, deep and focused RF treatment available today. EndyMed's 3DEEP technology has been used in thousands of professional aesthetic treatments in dermatological clinics internationally and utilizes a downsized version of it for use in their new home use treatment device, the Newa, which is FDA cleared for the home use market.
