  • Mixed Experience
    Verified Purchase

    I believe light therapy works, and of all the handhelds this is one of the better models in the market, the issue I have is for maximum results it can be tedious and time consuming, and you can only use it in 7-10 min sessions and it only covers a small portion of the body at a time. For minor aches and pains this can be a lifesaver, but for those looking for long term relief for chronic or moderate to severe pain... you will have to be very patient to get notable relief from this version of therapy. Finally (although I have not experienced this personally) there is also a question of the durability of the product, this is one of the better ones but the technology used is fragile and there have been complaints that the product just "stopped working".

  • It didn't produce any negative results.
    Verified Purchase

    Those with chronic pain I hope will understand. I use it for chronic ear/jaw pain for the past several years. I can't tell you that it was the 'cure all'. But, I can say sitting watch TV in the evening using the Light Therapy under the ear and jaw area provides "comfort". Something is better than nothing and it was worth the opportunity to add to my arsenal of pain relief.

  • Positive Review: It really does work
    Verified Purchase

    I was a bit skeptical but after using this for a couple of weeks, it does seem to help with the thumb pain. The nice thing is that it is comfortable to hold and is easy to place over areas that need relief.

  • I really wish it worked for me
    Verified Purchase

    I wanted this to work. I have low back pain and knee pain. I tried it a few times and it just seemed like a waste of time. I would say that the pain I have may be too severe to get much help from this. Maybe it will work for some

  • works great!
    Verified Purchase

    Light weight and compact for travel. I find it provides some relief for knee pain and I've been able to cut back a little on using Ibuprofen. The auto shut off is a nice safety feature. I use it once daily and it has provided some relief. Good noninvasive and drug-free way to treat arthritis.

  • Magic Wand
    Verified Purchase

    I pulled several mucles and had some nerve damage. I applied the wand to each area leaving it on the painful area for 14 minutes and the pain was cut in half to each area. It made the rest of my day tolerable. Great product!

  • Q:

    "Does this product help regenerate collagen and reduce wrinkles ?"

    • A:

      Hello wiccanwoman118, this does not regenerate collagen and reduce wrinkles. It produces heat to stimulate blood circulation, relieve swelling and loosen tight muscles. I hope this helps. Shelia B

    • A:

      I used this for pain and got no heat generated enough to help. Use a hot pad instead. As far as wrinkles, no, this is not strong enough. Overstock does have another one for about ****. That one needs to be used every day abot 5 minutes and continued to be used. That will help for minor fine lines. A firnd has that one. You need o keep up he reamentsa though or you will see the sagging start.

  • Q:

    "How does this wavelength differ from the DPL therapy system. would it also work for wrinkles?"

    • A:

      1. The DPL Therapy (panel) System has 174 infrared LED’s – 154 880nm infrared & 20 660nm red LEDs that get to 4 joules per cm 2- it has a footprint (treatment area) of 9 inches x14 inches 2. The DPL Nüve Handheld has 60 LED’s – 54 880nm infrared & 4 660nm red LEDs that get to 26 joules per cm 2 – it is a 4 inch diameter (covers a smaller area than the panels) and due to the higher concentration of LEDs in the smaller area get to a higher joule rating. The nanometer of the infrared and red is in the wavelength range (630nm & 660nm Red - 830nm & 880nm infrared) for both pain and beauty applications. Both systems are designed and have the wavelength and joule rating for pain applications

  • Q:

    "How does 60 led compare to 660 nano"

    • A:

      For a Laser or Light Emitting Diode (LED), the wavelength of light is extremely important since the wavelength ultimately decides the penetration depth in the target tissue. Red light from a 660 nm continuous-wave has a penetration rate much greater than from other hair lasers closer to the lower end of the red spectrum (630 - 650 nanometers).
