MirvasoMirvaso gel is used to treat redness of the face caused by the skin condition rosacea. Rosacea is a condition which occurs when the blood vessels in the skin dilate too easily causing a rash and persistent redness on the cheeks, chin, forehead and nose. This rash can be accompanied by skin sensitivity, a burning sensation, inflamed red bumps and pus spots. Over time, areas of the face will permanently appear a deep red shade with thin red lines below the surface. Rosacea is a hereditary condition which can affect both men and women but is more likely to occur in middle-aged women with fair skin. The cause of rosacea is not yet fully understood although there have been a number of triggers identified as leading to flare ups. These include; sunlight, stress, alcohol, caffeine, spicy food, hot or cold weather and strenuous exercise. Mirvaso gel effectively treats the symptoms of rosacea by narrowing the dilated blood vessels to reduce excess blood flow and redness.
