    All right, live and learn with the 15 minutes. Guess I am paying for my rashness now (no pun intended!). What do you guys recommend as a good pace of advancement?
    What about 5 minutes every other day to give your face time to adjust?

    Has this not been mentioned before? It hit me as soon as I looked at that first photo of yours.

    Try about five or so minutes, with the light maybe 12-15 inches away. Build from there: building, perhaps, the time first - upto 15-20 minutes. Then begin shortening the distance.
    Too funny! No, never heard I looked like David Hassellhoff before, and for that I shall count myself blessed! However, I have heard Rob Lowe and Kevin Bacon. Maybe a couple others. Of course, all of these generous comparisons were pre-rosacea. No telling with whom (or what!) I will be compared in the future!

    Wow, five minutes every other day sounds too sedate, keeping in mind that I am a man and therefore (a) aggressive, (b) impatient, and (c) a bit daft.

    What would my testicles think of me if I didn't overdo everything?

    Seriously, is there any harm in pushing through this with continued 15 minute daily sessions, expecting an early flare (currently in progress) but perhaps earlier response? Or is that just (c) talking again?

    I've also just started using the Britebox unit and likewise have jumped straight into the "recommended" 15 minute sessions. I'd probably do more if it didn't switch itself off!

    I've not had any problems so far (only on Day 4) although I am slightly more flushed afterwards but as I do it just before bedtime it doesn't matter too much. I moisturise straight afterwards and when I wake up morning my face is back to normal - it doesn't stay that way for too long unfortunately!

    Fingers crossed it will make an improvement for all those using it or other RLT units.

    Okay, yeah, definitely a bit daft. Went for 15 minutes again today. Pretty sure I have more p&ps than I have had in quite some time. The correlation seems fairly convincing. Would definitely not be mistaken for David Hasselhoff now!

    This is pretty discouraging, but on the bright side, RLT is clearly having an effect on my rosacea, just not a good one at the moment. Hoping this is similar to the initial breakout people seem to get when starting retinoids: something unpleasant on the way to recovery.

    Stay tuned...

    Mmmmmm sounds like my Partner!

    Of course you CAN do 15 minutes a day, however (and there is always one of those) in
    the long run it may be too much too soon!

    You may be all of a,b and indeed c................but your rosacea sadly doesn't give a damn!

    Good luck!

    Hi Michael,

    I know how tempting it is to just do the maximum we can to make our rosacea symptoms better as fast as we can but with rosacea I find slow and steady is what proves most beneficial. Take it from people who have been there and done that. It is usually much better to take it easy to begin with and go day by day slowly building up cumulative results. Small improvements lead to bigger ones with minimal side effects. We are all rooting for you!!

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

    ps you guys make an attractive couple

    Michael More is not always necessarily better so take your time and adjust your regime to what suits you best.

    Look upon it as a slow experiment and hopefully you will get good results.

    Good luck

    Peter
