What is Mirvaso Gel?
It is proven to treat the facial redness of rosacea (sometimes known as acne rosacea) in adults.
What are the key benefits of Mirvaso Gel?
A clinical trial of over 500 people with moderate to severe facial redness showed that Mirvaso was fast and effective at reducing the redness. Effects were seen within 30 minutes of the first day of treatment. A second clinical trial in 449 patients for 12 months showed that long-term use is both safe and effective.
How does Mirvaso Gel work?
Mirvaso Gel is made in 30g tubes and contains 3mg brimonidine in each gram. Brimonidine is a highly selective alpha2-adrenergic receptor agonist. Applying Mirvaso Gel to the skin causes the veins in the skin to contract, reducing blood flow and redness of the face.
How to use Mirvaso Gel
If you’re considering using Mirvaso Gel, please read the enclosed leaflet carefully before commencing. You should be advised that this gel is only suitable for facial skin. A small pea-sized amount of Mirvaso should be applied smoothly and evenly to the forehead, chin, nose and each cheek. Take care in avoiding the eyes, eyelids, lips, mouth and inside the nose and wash your hands immediately after application.
The treatment can be used in conjunction with other creams, gels and cosmetics, but these must only be applied after the Mirvaso gel has dried.
Mirvaso should not be applied on irritated skin or open wounds and in cases of severe irritation or contact allergy, the gel should not be used.
It must not be used by children under the age of 18 years.
What are the side effects of Mirvaso Gel?
Mirvaso may cause potential side effects. However, not all those taking the treatment will suffer from them.
These can include redness, itching, flushing and a burning sensation on the skin. These have occurred in 1.2 to 3.3% of patients in clinical studies and are typically mild to moderate, so sufferers do not usually need to stop using Mirvaso Gel. These side effects can feel like a worsening of your initial symptoms, but it is impossible to predict if you will experience them.
We recommend that you order just one tube to start with and use the gel on a small area of the face at first. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a refund for the product if you experience this common and documented side effect.

These medications don’t work for everyone but they are easy to use and work for around 60% of people who try them. They work by making it easier to get an erection by reducing the effect of (inhibiting) the chemical PDE-5. This chemical is used in the body to make sure there isn’t too much blood in the penis during an erection, but if you have erectile dysfunction then this chemical ends up over-compensating.
Not everyone can take these medications. You may not be able to try them if you:
