the pillows suppose to rest on the nostrils .. not goes inside

But they push upward on the nose, giving you that pig-nose appearance.

This is all really just a joke. I doubt the effect is real. If it were, you'd have to keep going up a size in your nasal pillows, eventually reaching XXXL. Dielaughing
My baggy eyes isn't a joke, I am serious, I thought maybe I had the mask to tight but I believe its the design of the Swift FX. I am comfortable with the fit but not how I look in the morning. I won't share no real photos, don't want to scare anyone! LOL I'm not trying to win any beauty contests so if my therapy is working I'm okay with it, I can just plan my outdoor trips at night when my face goes back to normal! Too-funny

I have just started using the pillows and I wake up with huge bags under my eyes and swollen eye lids. I was wondering if this was caused by my Swift FX? Anybody else , besides Tim and I, have this problem?
Huh

During allergy season, I get this. I use nasal pillows. If I am really down with it, my eyes will be glued shut, but not very often. Three times a year maybe. Someone explained that it pushes the fluid out the tear ducts? Something like that.

I will start looking in the mornings and see if the puffiness is more oftener than I think.

I would like to report that since I've been using Grape Seed Oil on and around my nostrils, my nose-hole enlargement process has begun to reverse itself. Not sure why, exactly.

RE: The "Henry Waxman" look - an issue with nasal pillows?
This is scary -- I don't have a cute, petite little nose ... I have a rather large Celtic nose, thanks to my dad ....

so I don't need any kind of enlargement!! I'm using the medium pillows. I tried small and it seemed like I wasn't getting enough air.
Seriously, is this something that happens?!

I haven't noticed any problem with the P10 Clem. I use the medium size and sometimes go to the large size for a week or so. It does remind me of a radio show from my kidhood days: "Who nose what evil lurks in the hearts of man? The Shadow nose......." Apologies are already in the mail.

DISCLAIMER; DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. TESTED UNDER SAFE LAB CONDITIONS ONLY. DO NOT ATTEMPT!!

I read that after nostril enlarging will nasal pillow masks one should use Preparation H to shrink them right back down to normal size, sometimes even smaller! I heard it works wonders on baggy eyes and wrinkles as well. Dielaughing

If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

Def not putting Prep H up my nose, LOL.

Now the dr is increasing the air pressure in my machine. I'm worried it's going to blow up my nose like never before. Ugh. Am I going to need plastic surgery someday????

Seriously, how long have these nasal pillows been around? Has anyone using the pillows for a long time noticed nasal "stretching"? This has got me worried now. Good Grief.
