The Drs: Rosacea Treatment
The Doctors shared that there is a new topical treatment that claims it can reduce facial redness caused by rosacea in just 30 minutes. They wanted to put the treatment to the test to find out for themselves, so they had three women back in the procedure room with Dr Andrew Ordon, who shared that more than 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea. Dr Jessica Wu is a board certified dermatologist who was with Dr Ordon and shared that Mirvaso is the only FDA-approved topical medication designed to treat the redness from rosacea, that you can use yourself at home.
Dr Wu explained that the redness is caused by excess blood flow to the skin. The ingredient in the gel is designed to constrict those blood vessels, reducing the redness. You simply rub a thin layer of the gel into your skin in the morning before you put on makeup. It takes about 30 minutes to work with results that are supposed to last up to 12 hours. The Doctors then gave the women 30 minutes to see if the product would deliver results as promised.
The Drs: Mirvaso For Rosacea Results
Later in the show, The Doctors checked back in on the woman to reveal the results. They showed before and after pictures of the three women, who said they’re very happy with the results. It was clear that the redness was reduced, and the women shared that their skin definitely felt better. They said the gel was clear, and while one woman said she looked a little more tired without the redness, she’ll take it!
Dr Wu said the results can last up to 12 hours. The redness is caused by the veins dilating and excess blood flow to the skin. The gel shrinks the veins and reduces redness. She made it clear that it’s not a permanent cure, but instead is a quick fix and treatment. She recommends using it for special occasions to help with the effects of rosacea.
The treatment isn’t cheap but many insurances do cover it and you can often find coupons online to help with the price.
