Rosacea Doctor Service

Mirvaso contains the active substance brimonidine which belongs to a group of medicines commonly referred to as “alpha agonists”.

It is applied to the skin of the face to treat redness due to rosacea in adult patients.

Redness of the face due to rosacea is caused by high levels of blood flow in the facial skin, which is the result of enlargement (dilation) of the small blood vessels of the skin. Enlarged blood vessels are thought to be the key factor in causing the redness of rosacea and by reducing the size of these vessels the symptoms of rosacea are successfully treated.

  • Mirvaso acts to narrow these blood vessels again which reduces the excess blood flow and redness.
  • Mirvaso can be used with other medical treatments of Rosacea and with cosmetic products.

In clinical trials it was demonstrated that Mirvaso is safe and effective at reducing redness with effects being seen as quickly as 30 minutes after application. Mirvaso remained effective throughout a yearlong study with

Mirvaso is suitable for adults aged 18 years or over

  • It is not suitable for pregnant or breast eeding women or for application on open wounds.

A good self care guide and information for rosacea is available on the NHS website.

If you have rosacea:

  • wear a high SPF sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every day

  • try to cover your face in cold weather
  • use gentle skincare products for sensitive skin
  • clean your eyelids at least once a day if you have blepharitis
