Ultra Renew Plus

I am proud and excited to launch Ultra Renew Plus. After months of testing and tweaking, Ultra Renew Plus by Truth In Aging offers not one, not two, but three modes: ultrasonic, LED and galvanic (positive and negative ions). What’s more – and this is the really, really cool part – they can all be used at the same time (what more could a busy woman want) as well as separately. This is the anti-aging, lifting and firming tool to put at the top of your wishlist.

Ultra Renew Plus has an LCD display panel on the device, enabling you to choose and see the modes and intensity. After testing it for most of this year, I am convinced that the ultrasound mode is more effective on the Plus and the ability to use two or even all three modes together is efficient and effective.

So what exactly do these modes do and how do they work? Overall, they are the best thing I know for smoothing lines and lifting sagging skin. But they contribute to the tasks a little differently.

As the ultrasound waves pass from the treatment head to the skin, they cause a vibration of the surrounding tissues, particularly those that contain collagen. This vibration massages the skin and increases oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste. The skin should feel energized, rosy and firm. Although the frequency is 3 MHz. Read on for more on how ultrasound works.

Ultrasound must be used with a water-based product (serum or gel) to ensure conductivity (there are directions for use here).

In October 2008, German researchers claimed to have identified how LED works – by changing the molecular structure of a glue-like layer of water on elastin, the protein that provides elasticity in skin, blood vessels, heart and other body structures. The light strips away those water molecules that are involved in the immobilization of elastin, gradually restoring its elastic function.

In addition to red light (helpful for smoothing, rosacea and broken veins), Ultra Renew Plus has blue and green lights. Blue light wavelengths produce singlet oxygen, which potentially destroy acne-causing bacteria. Green light targets melanocytes, melanin-producing cells located in the bottom layer of the skin’s epidermis.

Ionic, or galvanic current is a low level, continuous current that flows in one direction, making it a direct current with dual polarity of a positive or negative charge. It is supposed to work on the principle that charged ions in the skin are either attracted or repelled from the electrodes.

On the Ultra Renew Plus, there are two settings – ion+ and ion-. The ion+ (positive ion) is for deep cleansing and firming and ion- (negative ion) is for hyperpigmentation. Positive and negative cannot be used at the same time, but either one can be used with the other modes.

So, for example, you could tackle hyperpigmentation with ion- and the green LED light. Or to help or prevent breakouts and open/blocked pores, ion+ could be used in conjunction with blue LED light. A water-based cleanser, serum or gel (such as our Ultra Renew Gel Serum) must be used.

If you have been an ultrasound and LED fence sitter, then now could be the time to take the plunge.

    Hi Emily, we don't say that the Ultra Renew is FDA cleared. It is the later version, the Truth Vitality Lux Renew that is FDA cleared. This is mentioned at the end of this article right above these comments.

    What I don't understand is that you say this device is FDA cleared but having searched the FDA medical device submission your K number clearly states only the functions of red and blue , nothing there is showing galvanic or green light therapy and you clearly make claims on your site to it , so how can you do it ? Isn't that not really allowed?

    I'll be happy to get an answer for that .

    Hi Rachel. Let me explain how the FDA works. Truth Vitality Lux Renew was a prototype modeled off of the Ultra Renew Plus. The Lux Renew is FDA cleared to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and acne. When we submitted the device, the FDA looked to see if they have cleared a similar technology. As our device had multiple technologies we had to find a predicate that had already been cleared for each one. The device was put through all the engineering and standards tests and passed. It is about claims. By this I mean that, for example, we can say red LED light is for wrinkles because there is cleared predicate for this by the FDA.

    There was no cleared predicate for galvanic. So in order to make claims for this mode we would have to conduct clinical trials to demonstrate how they work. This process is very expensive and so we disabled this function and the device was then cleared by the FDA.

    I hope that gives you the context to use your device with confidence.

    I bought the Ultra Renew Plus four years ago and have been using it ever since, but now see that you have replaced it with something else that is "FDA approved". Was there something wrong with the Ultra Renew Plus? The new version no longer offers galvanic current, for instance. Should I be concerned?

    Hi Suzan, the Ultra Renew has been replaced by our new FDA cleared device, the Truth Vitality Lux Renew. Unlike the Quasar, it also has ultrasound, which is great for firming and lifting, as well as blue and red LED.
