Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Degree of Improvement Rating #1 [ Time Frame: 4 week post-final treatment and 12 weeks post-final treatment ]
    Rate the degree of improvement from Baseline observed in the post-treatment photographs (4 weeks and 12 weeks) as assessed by independent blinded Reviewers using the Physician's Global Assessment of Improvement Scale (GAIS) GAIS: +4=Very Significant Improvement (> 75%),+3=Significant Improvement(51 - 75%), +2=Moderate Improvement(26 - 50%), +1=Mild Improvement(5 - 25%) and 0=No Change(<5%)

  2. Degree of Improvement Rating #2 [ Time Frame: 4 week post-final treatment and 12 weeks post-final treatment ]
    Rate the degree of improvement from Baseline observed in the post-treatment photographs (4 weeks and 12 weeks) as assessed by the Investigator using the Physician's Global Assessment of Improvement Scale (GAIS) GAIS: +4=Very Significant Improvement (> 75%),+3=Significant Improvement(51 - 75%), +2=Moderate Improvement(26 - 50%), +1=Mild Improvement(5 - 25%) and 0=No Change(<5%)

  3. Degree of Improvement Rating #3 [ Time Frame: 4 week post-final treatment and 12 weeks post-final treatment ]
    Rate the degree of improvement from Baseline observed in the post-treatment photographs (4 weeks and 12 weeks) as assessed by the Subject using the Physician's Global Assessment of Improvement Scale (GAIS) GAIS: +4=Very Significant Improvement (> 75%),+3=Significant Improvement(51 - 75%), +2=Moderate Improvement(26 - 50%), +1=Mild Improvement(5 - 25%) and 0=No Change(<5%)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Effectiveness Assessment: Temporal Order [ Time Frame: 12 weeks post-final treatment ]
    Correct identification of the temporal order of each photograph pair (Baseline, 4 weeks post-treatment, 12 weeks post-treatment) as determined by independent blinded reviewers.
