As ReFissa begins to work, it may produce redness, flaking and irritation. Many people find that the signs of irritation end after a couple of months. If your skin becomes too irritated, consult with your doctor, who may suggest you try using it every other night. Then resume nightly treatment when you can. Remember, ReFissa works gradually. You may not see full results until the 24th week. See the clinical data.
