The return to regular activities is possible immediately after the intervention. The procedure lasts around 15 minutes, the effect begins after 2-3 days, and full effect is achieved after 7 days.

The procedure is not recommended during pregnancy or lactation, during the therapy with Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and in some nervous or muscle disorders. The effect lasts for 5-6 months or longer and it can be repeated after 6 months. Clinical studies show that duration of effect is prolonged after subsequent administrations of the preparation, so that in the future the frequency of treatments is reduced, and the effect is still maintained.
