BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition of varying severity that can significantly impact patient quality of life. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is an established treatment for rosacea-associated telangiectasia, inflammation, and erythema. This study assessed whether application of a phyto-corrective mask, gel, and resveratrol antioxidant serum after IPL treatment can improve outcomes and reduce procedure-related adverse effects.

METHODS: In a prospective, open-label, split-face, 3-month study, 10 subjects with moderate to severe facial rosacea underwent IPL treatment on both sides of the face. The following were applied to the right side of the face only: phyto corrective mask once weekly starting immediately after IPL; phyto corrective gel twice daily; and resveratrol antioxidant treatment at night. Both sides of the face were treated with sunscreen. Subjects were assessed on Day 1, 1 and 3 months after IPL by three, independent evaluators using the 5-point Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). All subjects rated skin redness, hydration and overall improvement on Day 1 and completed a patient satisfaction questionnaire at the 1- and 3-month visits.

RESULTS: Ten women were enrolled, aged 44-72 years old, with moderate (n=6) to severe (n=4) rosacea. IPL was effective at reducing symptoms with rosacea classified as absent in 5 women and mild in 5 at the final 3-month visit. GAIS scores also revealed improvements on both sides of the face, but the skincare treated side showed continuous improvement over 3 months with all patients remaining at least 'Improved', whereas there appeared to be a waning effect after 1 month following with IPL alone. On Day 1 after IPL, all women reported less redness, improved hydration and improved skin appearance on the right side of the face. Patient satisfaction was consistently rated higher on the right side of the face.

CONCLUSION: Application of a phyto-corrective mask, gel, and resveratrol antioxidant serum may complement IPL treatment for rosacea by enhancing treatment outcomes and reducing procedure-related symptoms.
