What do you mean by “no noticeable results”? Not cutting better? Sand paper not cutting the blade?

Depending on how bad the blade is you might need to start with a lower grit.

Did you start by flattening the back of the blade?

Can you take photos of both sides of the blade?

Are you sure you have a sharpness issue and not a plane tuning issue?
