About Mirvaso

Mirvaso is used on a daily basis and it reduces symptoms of rosacea for the duration of one day. If you forget to apply the gel you may find you see that your skin goes back to being red on that day. When applying Mirvaso, use a pea-sized amount and spread it evenly across your face, covering your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose.

You must not use Mirvaso on eyes, lips or inside the nose. If the rosacea cream touches any of these areas, wash it off immediately using plenty of water.

If you would like to put on make up or use other creams/cosmetic products, wait until Mirvaso has soaked in and dried before applying them.
The medicine or ‘active ingredient’ in Mirvaso gel is called brimonidine. Brimonidine is the substance which prevents the symptoms of rosacea. It acts on your blood vessels and shrinks them to reduce redness, swelling and flushes. Every gram of Mirvaso contains 3.3mg of brimonidine.

The gel is opaque and can be white to light yellow.
