Clinical effectiveness of novel rosacea therapies.

Curr Opin Pharmacol. 2019 Jan 10;46:14-18

Authors: Feaster B, Cline A, Feldman SR, Taylor S

Abstract
Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin disease that is difficult to manage because of the unknown etiology and due to its variable manifestations. These facts and the few new available treatment options make it difficult to select a really effective treatment. This review aims to assess the efficacy and safety of novel treatment options for rosacea. The topical alpha adrenergic agonist oxymetazoline reduces rosacea-related erythema. Topical ivermectin improves lesion count, inflammation, and maintenance of remission of rosacea compared to topical metronidazole. Procedural therapies including pulsed dye laser, radiofrequency, and dual frequency ultrasound are promising as both monotherapies or in combination. Although there are several effective treatment modalities for rosacea management, treatments options should be tailored for the specific clinical scenario.
