I agree, this is not for the faint of heart or the impatient. I had 3 hours ALA incubation with 25 minutes under blue light 5 days ago, at Kaiser Aesthetic, $800. Will probably be able to go out in public tomorrow, day 6. The light hurts like hell. Afterwards, you will be bright red, skin hot to touch, hard to cool down even with ice packs, very puffed up and swollen with serious edema around the eyes for several mornings, lots of little pimples, you will look like a red pepper that;s been under the broiler. THEN, day 3 it starts peeling in gross thick chunks that stick on your face and you will have a hard crackly appearance everywherre else- like a shriveled dried prune. You will itch. I am very optimistic about the results, as it seems like the T-zone areas of hard deep damaged oil glands are slowly coming to the surface. Will post full review later just want to confirm that you have to be prepared for major disruption. :-)

Oh, and be sure to follow post care instructions. Mine included lots of water, hydrating creams, antiobiotics and a 6 week checkup.
