    Thank you fulloflove....and I'm sad you were damaged too.

    Personally, I will never allow another laser to touch my face. This has completely changed how I view them and I had one too many.

    I believe R-Lipoic is more bioavailable. It's used by cells more effectively and thus works better as an anti-oxidant et al.
