Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by facial flushing, erythema, telangiectasias, and papulopustular lesions. Treatment for rosacea includes limiting inciting factors and reducing inflammation with topical and oral therapies. Traditional therapies primarily focus on the papulopustular or background erythematotelangiectatic component of rosacea, leaving symptoms of flushing poorly controlled and profoundly impacting the quality of life of patients. Neuromodulators have been speculated to improve the flushing component of rosacea by reducing mast cell degranulation and the release of neuropeptides. However, its use for symptomatic relief in refractory flushing rosacea has been limited by side effects such as facial muscle weakness or paralysis. We present the use of strategic placement of high-dose neuromodulators for treatment-resistant rosacea. This approach has resulted in the gradual stabilization of symptoms, improved quality of life, and superior side effect profile. Silence C, Kourosh AS, Gilbert E.
