Soolantra cream is used on affected areas of the skin, avoiding sensitive areas such as the eyes, lips and inside the nose. You should apply Soolantra cream once daily. Never use more than 1 pea sized amount of the product on each area of the face (nose, forehead, chin, and each cheek) in a day.
You should use Soolantra cream first, and allow it to dry, before applying any other products. Avoid triggers for rosacea and protect the face from harsh weather conditions to get the most out of Soolantra.
When should I use Soolantra?
Soolantra should be used when you see swelling and spots or pimples appearing on the face due to rosacea. It should be used daily. If you miss a dose, you may find the inflammation or spots get worse again. Take the medicine again as normal the following day and never use a double dose.
Always use before applying any skincare or cosmetics. Soolantra can be used for up to 4 months, or advised by your doctor. Speak to your doctor if after 3 months you do not see your symptoms getting better, as you may need to try a different type of treatment
Should I use Soolantra in the morning or at night?
When you use Soolantra cream is up to you and when your symptoms are worst. If you want the most from your cream, it may be best to use in the morning before anything else and allow it to dry. Making it part of your daily skincare routine can help you to remember to use it daily.
How can I get the most out of Soolantra?
There are a few things you should do and other things you should avoid to get the most out of your Soolantra cream and improve your rosacea symptoms.
When using Soolantra you should:
- cover the face to protect the skin in very cold weather
- manage stress
- use an SPF moisturiser daily, after application of Soolantra cream
- only use skincare products made for sensitive skin
- avoid humid, hot conditions (where possible)
- use daily
When using Soolantra you should avoid:
- too much caffeine
- hot drinks
- spicy food
- too much intense exercise, such as running
- menthol or witch hazel products
These are all triggers that may make your symptoms worse.
Other treatments that are commonly used for rosacea include Mirvaso gel, which reduces redness and size of blood vessels, and Metronidazole, which is best for reducing swelling and pimple outbreaks.
