How long will it be before I see and feel results?
For pain applications: Depending on degree of pain and discomfort you are experiencing, relief may be felt immediately or after only a few treatments. For deeper pain symptoms, several DPL® treatments may be required for noticeable results. For skin care applications: The results will vary based on individual skin types and concerns. Some will feel and see results after 3 to 4 DPL® treatments, while for others it may take up to 10 weeks before feeling or seeing measureable results. It may take longer to realize improvement in the skin conditions of individuals who (1) have severe sun damage to the skin, (2) are or have been smokers, and (3) have very thin skin.
