What is Mirvaso Gel?

Mirvaso Gel is used to treat facial skin redness caused by the chronic skin disorder rosacea.

The gel contains brimonidine tartrate, an alpha agonist which helps to reduce flushing and redness.

Mirvaso Gel is only suitable for use in adults aged 18 and over. It should not be used in children under the age of 18 as there is limited information concerning its safety.

Mirvaso Gel should not be used if you are breastfeeding as it is not known whether brimonidine tartrate is excreted in breast milk.

Do not use this medicine if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. If you think you have experienced an allergic reaction, stop using the gel and consult your doctor or pharmacist.

How does Mirvaso Gel work?

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder which can affect the skin on a long-term basis. Although it often starts with flushing episodes, this can develop into permanent redness, a burning sensation and small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible.

The condition relapses, which means there are times when symptoms occur and times when they do not. Symptoms can generally be controlled with treatment.

You doctor may prescribe Mirvaso Gel as it contains the alpha agonist brimonidine tartrate. This stimulates the alpha receptors found on the muscle in blood vessel walls.

Rosacea is caused by small blood vessels in the face dilating, increasing blood flow to the face. Mirvaso Gel acts on the alpha receptors to narrow blood vessels, reducing redness and providing relief from the flushing and burning sensation.

You should always use Mirvaso Gel exactly as advised by your doctor.
