Mirvaso gel is used on affected areas of the skin, avoiding sensitive areas such as the eyes, lips and inside the nose. You can apply Mirvaso gel once daily and you can use Mirvaso gel for as long as required. Never use more than 1 gram (5 pea sized amounts) of the product in a day. You should use Mirvaso first, and allow it to dry, before applying any other products.
Avoid triggers for rosacea and protect the face from harsh weather to get the most out of Mirvaso. This includes wearing a high SPF sunscreen.
When should I use Mirvaso?
Mirvaso should be used when you see redness or blood vessels on the skin caused by rosacea, and you want to reduce the redness. It should be used on every day that you want to reduce the redness.
If you do not use it, your blood vessels will be easier to see that day and redness could increase. If you decide not to use it one day, simply take the medicine again as normal when you want to use it again. Never use a double dose.
You may slowly increase the amount of gel you use if your symptoms stay the same or do not improve, as long as you do not go over the maximum dose. Only do this after speaking with a doctor.
Should I use Mirvaso in the morning or at night?
When you use Mirvaso gel is up to you and when your symptoms are worst. It should only be used when the face is red. If you want your face to look less red throughout the day, it can be used in the morning, before anything else is applied to the face. Adding it to your skincare routine can help you to remember to use it daily.
