How do I clean and care for my NEWA?
Remove all activator gel from your NEWA after every use with a clean, soft dry cloth, ensuring that the power is switched off beforehand and that you clean carefully between the electrodes. Store your NEWA in a cool, dry place out of the reach of children.
Can I use NEWA if I have sensitive skin?
If you have sensitive skin we’d recommend that you test an area for skin tolerance by treating one area of the face and waiting 24 hours.
