Bite the Bullet
on October 29, 2015
I looked at this product for nearly 2 years before taking the plunge. I couldn't get past the price tag and the mixed reviews. I'm here to say....just do it. I am 42 and have had moderate (2-5 chin cysts at all times) cystic acne for most of my adult life and I have done EVERYTHING short of accutane. When birth control pills and oral and topical antibiotics stopped working recently I panicked and bought this because I felt like I was at the end of my rope. This product is not a miracle, but it's darn close. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and it definitely is not a hoax. For me, it started working immediately (healed an active cyst in a day or so) and I can see how you have to be consistent for good results. I use it everyday only 4 minutes (chin is my only problem area) and I have not had a large painful cyst since. That's not to say they are not trying to come up. I can still feel the pain in my chin in certain areas where one is about to form and then I make sure to concentrate on that area during my evening treatment. Sure enough, within the next few days, the "cyst" will only erupt into a TINY whitehead with zero inflammation surrounding it. It "dries" the cyst up in a matter of days and it never gets to the point of a cyst. I put "dries" in quotes because the best part is that it does not dry the skin out...AT ALL. If I were to let my cysts run their normal life cycle, those suckers would take a good 2 weeks to painfully form, enlarge and then
gradually decrease to a nice big purple spot for months to follow. The tiny 3-5 tiny red zits at a time on my chin that were formally painful cysts the size of dimes-nickles are a happy sight, comparatively. And super easy to cover lightly with makeup. Hopefully this will continue to work because I feel like after this, I'm all out of cards.......
