dpl Nuve Handheld Red Light Therapy System 

dpl NuveThe dpl Nuve is a handheld red light therapy system incorporating an incredible technology that drastically improves the appearance of your skin as well as relieving any pain you may be experiencing; it’s a dual purpose system.  You just can’t beat a product that gives you more beautiful skin one minute and then turns around and manages your pain as well.  The dpl Nuve is a tool that can be used for the whole family.

I use the full size version of the dpl Nuve, the DPL Therapy System, and can’t imagine my life without it.  It has been the best purchase I have ever made.   This little beauty uses the exact same skin transforming technology as its hands-free sister, the DPL Therapy System, but is incorporated into a smaller hand-held version called the dpl Nuve.  It is FDA cleared for both skin rejuvenation and for pain management.  Because of its convenient size it’s fantastic for anyone who travels frequently and doesn’t want to miss any treatments.

You will enjoy the same anti-aging benefits with this smaller portable dpl Nuve but at a more budget friendly price.  Many people have seen significant results after just 4 uses.  It’s a great addition to your current treatments as you can take it anywhere or a great alternative to the larger DPL Therapy System because of its low cost.  Either way, the dpl Nuve is a fantastic anti-aging magical wand that will make your skin look younger and more beautiful.

The dpl Nuve uses both red and infrared light wavelengths to dramatically improve the appearance of your skin and reduce pain.  It’s a painless, non-invasive, and non-ablative handheld system that uses “photons” (a form of energy) to penetrate deep into the body repairing damaged tissues and relieving pain.

I have seen tremendous results with my DPL System.  My skin responded very quickly to the treatments looking smoother and more even within a few days.  I can’t tell you how much I love what this product does for skin immediately and long term.  I recommend it to all of my family and friends.
