NuEra Skin Tightening

NuEra is the very latest skin tightening device at Cutis Dermatology. NuEra employs third-generation radiofrequency to contract collagen to provide an immediate sensation of firmness around key areas such as the lower & mid-face as well as the neck. A delayed phase increases dermal collagen, improving skin laxity. This painless treatment has no downtime. A series of 4-6 sessions are recommended for best outcomes.  

FactsFacts on NuEra Skin Tightening

  • NuEra delivers painless & gentle radiofrequency waves
  • Treatments are fast,effective & comfortable 
  • NuEra has zero downtime
  • Works by tightening collagen followed by collagen induction
  • Results can be felt right after the procedure
  • Results are seen in the weeks to follow
  • I use NuEra in combination with lasers, dermal fillers, threads & peels

What can NuEra do for my Skin Tightening?

NuEra is the very latest skin tightening device from Lumenis. It used low heat radiofrequency to contract & regenerate collagen, leading to improvements in skin tone. In my opinion, it is the best skin tightening device on the market (& we have half a dozen). NuEra can-

  • Treat mild to moderate skin laxity on the face & neck
  • Reduce early jowling
  • Reduce static wrinkles
  • Treat laxity on the body including arms, abdomen & lower limbs

When will I see the results?

You can feel the results immediately. This is due to immediate collagen contraction, hence the treated areas  feel firmer. The next phase is collagen induction, which is due to increased collagen in the dermal layers of skin. The best results are seen at 3-5 months after starting NuEra RF.

What is involved in treatment?

NuEra treatments are super fast- the whole procedure is completed in less than 30 minutes. During the treatment your skin will feel warmth much like a warm stone massage.. This is due to radio-frequency energy delivered by the device.

Does the treatment hurt?

No. NuEra uses low heat over a longer time, hence treatments do not hurt. High heat delivered over a short timeframe (e.g. HIFU or lasers) tends to be painful.

Davin’s viewpoint on NuEra RF skin tightening

This is one of my favorite RF devices as it is powerful enough to tighten skin in a relatively short period of time. Unlike older devices, NuEra can complete a treatment in less than 30 minutes. Older devices require 60 to 90 minutes a session. 

Most patients will notice skin firming immediately after the procedure. This is due to a process called immediate collagen contraction- it is the same feeling as after a workout, when your muscles feel tighter & firmer. This is short lived & within a day or two your skin will regress to normal. With repeated treatments, 10-21 days apart, your skin will increase momentum & start to feel firmer for longer. We recommend 3-6 sessions depending on your goals, clinical findings & age. 

In my practice, I combine RF with other treatments such as PDO threads, deep peels, collagen stimulating dermal fillers, RF microneedling, HIFU & lasers. The reason for this is that I want to treat all layers of skin to maximize collagen contraction. RF treats deep, whilst PDO threads treat the middle layer. Peels & lasers address superficial issues such as skin quality. Each method of skin tightening calls on specific inflammatory responses within your skin. For lasers this means growth factors from the upper layers of skin.

Pico lasers treat the most superficial skin, the epidermis. More powerful lasers such as fractional lasers address the upper dermal layer providing collagen contraction of the papillary dermis. High heat lasers will cause neocollagenesis or collagen remodeling. HIFU hits the deepest layer, namely the SMAS covering facial muscles. It is superficial around the jawline, but is deep towards the middle of the face. 

My theory on momentum neocollagenesis is as follows. Your skin requires an initial push. These can be energy devices or deep peels. From there, your immune system can be nudged with slow heating, non-invasive methods to provide sustained momentum over a given time frame.  

RF can be delivered via two main ways, firstly with needles. This is fast heating (less than one second), but more superficial- up to 5 mm using specific microneedles. This form of RF is called RFM or radiofrequency micro needling. It is useful for cases of lower face & neck remodeling. The second method is to deliver RF using a conduction & resistance pathway with devices such as Theramge, Pelleve, Tempsure & NuEra.
