Botulinum Toxin for the Treatment of Refractory Erythema and Flushing of Rosacea.

Dermatology. 2015 Mar 3;

Authors: Park KY, Hyun MY, Jeong SY, Kim BJ, Kim MN, Hong CK

BACKGROUND: Persistent erythema and severe rosacea flushing can cause significant physical discomfort and emotional stress to patients. Currently, no satisfactory treatments are available.
METHODS: We report two cases of refractory flushing and erythema of rosacea that were successfully treated with intradermal botulinum toxin injections.
RESULTS: Good cosmetic results were achieved for both patients. The side effects during and after treatment were mild pain and localized bruising; these symptoms resolved within several days without further treatment.
CONCLUSION: Intradermal botulinum toxin injection may be an effective treatment for refractory erythema and rosacea flushing that deserves further study in a larger patient population. © 2015 S. Karger AG, Basel.
