| I bought this product after finishing a research paper on the effects of light therapy on memory. I stumbled upon the DPL system accidentally when siting the NASA study for my paper. I found it absolutely fascinating that the same technology that was originally used to grow plants in space was being used by doctors and other professionals for healing purposes. I suppose it makes perfect logical sense that mitochondrial regeneration and cell turnover would be the key to speeding up cell growth in most any case but still I remained ever the skeptic. In the end, my curiosity fueled my need to investigate further(as it usually does) I had to buy this product and see for myself if it had the healing potential for even a fraction of what was claimed.
When it arrived I felt like a kid on Christmas, tearing through paper, tape, and platic. I put it together, plugged it in, and put it on my face. It felt surprisingly pleasant. I know they give you a stand to put it on but I found it easier to simply lay down and balance it on my face. The light bulbs themselves stick out a little and kind of poke you if you lay them directly on your skin but other than that it was nice. The lights are slightly warm and you can feel your skin tingle and react slightly as they continue to heat up. I began using the lights twice a day everyday on my face and I have since beginning the program, used them on my neck and back (for pain relief) with positive results, and I have started using it on my thighs and bottom (in hopes of seeing an improvement in some mild cellulite).
After only 2 weeks of using the lights on my face I have noticed the following, smaller pore size (especially on my nose, chin, and forehead) reduced redness on cheeks and nose, lightening of dark circles under eyes, fewer fine lines around eyes including diminished crow's feet, I have had no major breakouts or blemishes, no pimples or bumps, lightening of minor scars on my face, lightening of freckles and dark spots on my nose, cheeks, and forehead.
I have recieved several compliments from friends and family on the tone and texture of my skin. Also I have seen an increase in fullness in areas of my face that seemed like they were a bit saggy before around my mouth and cheeks. I wear less makeup. I use less expensive skin cream.
I have always washed my face, taken care of my skin, and used sunscreen daily but after using the DPL system my overall skin looks and feels healthier.
It works. It works well for pain relief, for relaxing tense muscles, and on the face for beauty purposes but I think it works best if you use it consistently and practice good skin care in general. Wear sunscreen, dont' smoke cigarettes, drink plenty of water, eat lots of fruits and veggies, and take vitamins#they are good for you#.
