Entocort EC - How Long for Moon Face to go Away?

I took entocort ec for 3 months. First month 9 mg, second month 6 mg, & 3 mg the last. I have a little bit of a moon face. How long does it take for side effects like this to go away?

I didn't get a moon face from Entocort, but I know a young woman Crohn's sufferer who developed a significant moon face from prednisone. After she switched to biologics her moon face slowly went away over a period of about 2 or 3 months. After that there was a little residual puffiness for another 3 or 4 months before very slowly returning to completely normal appearance.
