RE: full face mask for high cheekbones
I had to put bandaids on my nose bridge till the skin got tougher there.

Good luck!

RE: full face mask for high cheekbones
I used the Mirage Quattro for about 6 months and was never happy with it. I'm under pretty high pressure and it didn't matter how tight I had the head gear, it always leaked badly and slid up into my mouth. Also, for some reason, I have a skin allergy to the cushion material. I tried several masks from the sleep lab and found that I love the Fisher Paykel Flex Fit 432. It fits under your chin and it's a whole lot more comfortable. I'd suggest sitting down with your supplier and trying several masks until you find the one that works for you.

Supplier # 13 ($25): http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...plier-List

See customer reviews ... Supplier #1

Edit: Just repeating ... for machines, masks, etc.. check Supplier #2 and Supplier #10
Both ship to Australia

USD$16 from Supplier #2 on Supplier List.

They can be reused for 2 to 3 months. Can wash them with mild (hand) soap to keep free from face oil. Keep them in a glass container or in the re-usable plastic container you buy them in, but not in any other plastic container.

Take care,

Plus shipping costs but works out heaps cheaper if machine or/and mask included with the order than the gouged prices charged in Australia

They,re good and Supplier #2 good too
I get my supplies from them at least once a year to save on shipping costs
Supplier #2 sell only complete masks, not parts

What machine?
