Mirvaso is a medicinal gel used to treat the symptoms of rosacea. Rosacea is a disease that occurs when the blood vessels under the skin are enlarged. Symptoms include lesions, spots, redness and flushing. Mirvaso Gel helps constrict the enlarged blood vessels in your skin and thus reduces these symptoms.
Rosacea is characterised by recurrent bouts of redness, facial flushing and spots on the skin. Redness occurs because there is increased blood flow in the facial skin, which is a result of the small blood vessels under the skin becoming enlarged.
Mirvaso Gel acts on the alpha receptors in the blood vessels in the facial skin. This causes these blood vessels to contract and narrow, which reduces the excess blood flow and redness.
Mirvaso Gel is known to be an effective treatment or rosacea. Benefits include:
Shrinks enlarged blood vessels
