  4. An article about improving rosacea with probiotics was written by Whitney Bowe, MD, RRDi MAC Member. More information on probiotics for rosacea.

    Mirvaso

    Has any of the RRDi MAC members have a comment on Mirvaso? Have any of you treated patients successfully with Mirvaso? We have been hearing a number of negative anecdotal reports with Mirvaso and have accumulated a list. Do you have any comment on why the negative reports out weigh the positive reports 4 to 1? We have one report from a physician reported on Pascoe's RS group site who says: "As a physician, I have prescribed Mirvaso to many patients over the past several months and have not received any complaints or negative feedback. I have seen many patients back for fo
  9. What is phototherapy? A more accurate term is photo rejuvenation. This refers to the use of light to rejuvenate skin. An even more accurate term is IPL or BBL photo rejuvenation. This term refers to a process using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or the newer and more advanced Broad Band Light (BBL) to rejuvenate aged and sun damaged skin non-invasively. The number one thing people should know about BBL and IPL photo-rejuvenation is that almost everyone can benefit from this treatment and the results are not results that can be gotten with chemical peels, skin care products or surgery.

  13. This Question and Answer was published in the Albuquerque Journal (also reported in the People's Pharmacy) Q: I am a 53-year-old man. When I turned 50, I developed severe rosacea. I tried everything, and nothing helped. I just returned from a two-week vacation in the South Pacific. I learned to snorkel and scuba dive and was in the ocean every day. By the time I left, all signs of rosacea were completely gone. I don’t know why salt water works to clear up the skin, but it’s almost miraculous. A: Thank you for sharing your great results. For those who may not have the opport
