Mirvaso + Dysport being trialed together


A clinical trial has been listed proposing the combination of Mirvaso and Dysport (the Galderma owned Botox-like product) to treat the redness and flushing of rosacea. So if you have ever wondered whether botox and Mirvaso might work well together, this trial is for you.

The trial will examine how well the combination of Mirvaso and Dysport affects both erythema and flushing 6 months after the treatment is administered.

This may represent a viable new treatment option for treatment resistent rosacea redness. Botox blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neural transmitter that is part of the autonomic nervous system.

Clinical Trial NCT03508869

    Forget the drugs…try Dr Steven Gundry’s Paradox Program found in his book “The Plant Paradox” published April 2017. No more Rosacea!
