Comment:
On day 15 of 21 day dose, the effects were very red and angry and significant swelling of entire face. Stopped at 18 days with doctors permission. Moisturize with vaseline or vanicream several times a day and I took 800 mg of ibuprofen for the burning and swelling. Doctor prescribed special cream for after care. Not pleasant at all but very effective.
