INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the HoMedics Newa® Skin Rejuvenation System.
ABOUT THE NEWA
Based on 3DEEP® technology, the Newa is a home use, energy based system for anti wrinkle
and skin rejuvenation treatment.
The Newa, by utilizing six unique electrodes, transmits thermal (heat) energy
into the deep layers of the skin to trigger collagen remodeling that will reduce
the appearance of winkles and improve your skin tone and texture. 3DEEP®
Radio Frequency technology combines the delivery of controlled heat deep
into the skin, while preserving the overlying epidermis.
WHY IT WORKS
How wrinkles form
The connective tissue in our skin contains the supportive structural components
(Collagen and Elastin fibers) that give the skin its shape. The Collagen fibers are
responsible for skin strength and tone. The Elastin fibers allow skin flexibility or elasticity.
With aging, the Collagen and Elastin fibers weaken and the production of new fibers slows
down. These structural changes cause the skin to loosen causing skin sagging and wrinkles.
Rejuvenate the Skin’s Support Structure
The Newa device is designated to tighten the existing collagen fibers and triggering new
Collagen and Elastin formation by reaching the deep dermal layers where new Collagen and
Elastin fibers form.

SAFETY FEATURES
Your safety is our primary concern, and therefore it is important that you will read these
instructions before using your Newa for the first time. in order to ensure your maximum safety,
the Newa was designed with these safety features:
• Blinking LED indication for energy delivery – The Newa lets you know that it is emitting
energy with a blinking LED. At the end of a 4 minute treatment cycle the LED will stop
blinking and a mild vibration will be felt.
• Automatic shut-off to prevent overheating - The Newa has a built-in smart sensor that
detects when the skin is overheating. The Newa energy delivery will automatically shut off if
your skin overheats.
• Temperature indicator - The Newa let you know when the skin has reached the optimal
temperature range by changing the LED color from Blue to Green. When optimal skin
temperature is reached the power will turn off and on alternately to maintain the desired skin
temperature and prevent overheating. Keep treating the entire area until the 4 minute
treatment cycle is complete.
• Motion sensor - The Newa has a smart sensor to detect motion. The energy delivery will automatically
shut off if you stop the movement during the treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN USING THE NEWA*
EXPECTED IMMEDIATE EFFECT
Immediately after treatment you should feel a warm sensation in the treated areas. Expect
your skin to feel tighter, smoother and more refreshed.
EXPECTED LONG TERM EFFECT
The skin is expected to improve gradually for up to six months following the treatment as new and
healthier collagen is formed. Most users will notice certain reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.
After a month of full treatments (up to 5 treatments a week) it is recommended to maintain the
effect with ongoing maintenance treatments twice a week.
THE ELASTICITY TEST
To see and feel the effectiveness of 3DEEP technology, perform the Elasticity Test on yourself.
Just pinch your skin in one of the treatment areas before and after the treatment and you may
notice the improvement in the skin’s elasticity and firmness.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
Since treatment with the Newa is heat-based, skin redness (erythema) and minor swelling
(edema) may appear in the treatment area. This simply means that you have applied the
necessary heat to achieve the required result. The redness and swelling is expected disappear
shortly after the treatment. Do not continue treatments if redness and swelling resides for
longer than 24 hours.
Some other (rare) potential side effects may include: pain, damage to natural skin texture
(crusting, blister, burn), or fragile skin. If any of these side effects continue for more than 24
hours, please consult your physician.
When you are treating your periorbital wrinkles with the Newa device, you may feel discomfort
that many participants described as stinging or prickling. There can also be a warming or
slight burning sensation that can last for several minutes after the treatment. Many participants
stated that these sensations lessened with continued use.
* Individual results depend on various factors, may vary between patients and are not
guaranteed by the manufacturer.

It is important to have the active tip in full contact with the skin at all time
during treatment.
Step 7 – Treatment
• Treat the entire treatment area in constant circular motion.
• You need to maintain circular motion of the device during
treatment mode.
• You should feel a warm, pleasant sensation as you move the device over
the treatment area. This means that the Newa is working.
• It is important you maintain a reasonable movement speed
as demonstrated in the instructional DVD.
• Once you have reached the optimal skin temperature range the LED turns
Green. Keep treating the entire area untill the 4 minute treatment cycle is
complete.
• A vibration will indicate that the 4 minute treatment cycle of the area is completed
Step 8 – Control The Heating
You can control the heating by changing the size of the treatment area:
• If you feel your skin is only mildly heated you can decrease the size of
the circular motion to narrow down the treatment area.
• If your skin feels too warm, try increase the size of your circles.
If this does not help, stop the treatment by pressing the power button
and change the treatment level to “1”.
