Just updating you guys:
I think I’ve concluded that EVO > heat. The reason we apply cold/hot pads or the IR lamp is to encourage blood circulation and healing. I never found it that useful, it helped, but only marginally. Last night I slept with the evo on and used it today in between sessions of clamping - extremely good results. This is the first technique that really helped me with healing.
Sparkx’s comment is important to keep in mind, but so long as you know your limit and are going there anyway, the EVO really helps limit discomfort of clamping. I expect it’s also speeding up healing. I do know that my tool doesn’t feel or look this way unless I take a 2-3 day break usually, and this was just from one night of sleep in EVO.
Highly recommended: but test somewhere else on your skin first to make sure you won’t have a bad reaction. I’m going to keep sleeping in the EVO and using it in between my sessions during the day (I have an 8 hour lapse between the 2 usually).
Edit: If Sparkx is correct and this thing only repairs only the minor blood vessels, why have most of the users (and myself already) experienced an increase in vascularity? I can see the larger blood vessels more clearly. Also, if it works topically, which it seems to, then some of it must be getting into the blood stream. In addition to those 2 things, it repaired a larger blood vessel for EVO (judging by the size of the thrombosed vain he mentioned). So it seems that this solution might be working for even the non-visible larger blood vessels Sparkx.
