Treatments for Rosacea
Because rosacea symptoms can vary substantially from person to person, treatment must be tailored by a dermatologist for each individual.13
Galderma, a leader in skin health, is proud to offer a variety of rosacea prescription treatments: one that targets and treats the bumps and blemishes of rosacea from the inside; two that treat the bumps and blemishes of rosacea from the outside; and one that provides quick relief from facial redness.
Treating Rosacea From The Inside ORACEA® (doxycycline) 40 mg* capsules
ORACEA capsules are different because they treat rosacea from the inside out. This once a day, non-antibiotic dose prescription medication treats inflammation below the skin to reduce the bumps and blemishes of rosacea.14
Treating the Sensitive Skin of Rosacea EPSOLAY® (benzoyl peroxide) Cream, 5%
EPSOLAY cream is an exciting, breakthrough topical treatment that’s designed specifically for sensitive rosacea skin like yours.15,16 It is the first topical treatment to combine benzoyl peroxide (BPO) with innovative microencapsulation technology to treat the bumps and blemishes of rosacea.17
Treating Rosacea From The Outside SOOLANTRA® (ivermectin) Cream, 1%
SOOLANTRA Cream is a gentle, once-daily topical prescription treatment. If you are looking to fight rosacea bumps and blemishes with the #1 branded topical rosacea treatment in the US, SOOLANTRA Cream may be the right treatment for you.18
Treating Rosacea For Redness Relief MIRVASO® (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33%†
If you have persistent (nontransient) facial redness associated with rosacea, MIRVASO Topical Gel may be an option for you, because it relieves redness of rosacea that may last up to 12 hours.19
Our innovative product range allows us to advance skincare treatment with science-based options over the course of people’s lives. Consult with your dermatologist to see if these treatment options may be right for you.
The active ingredient in ORACEA® (doxycycline) 40 mg* capsules is doxycycline, but unlike traditional antibiotic doses of doxycycline, the low-dose formulation of ORACEA capsules does not work by killing bacteria. Instead, it reduces the bumps and blemishes of rosacea because of its anti-inflammatory properties. That’s important because rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition—not a bacterial infection.20
ORACEA capsules contain enough doxycycline to reduce the inflammatory lesions associated with rosacea.
The active ingredient in EPSOLAY® (benzoyl peroxide) Cream, 5% is benzoyl peroxide (BPO). It is an effective antibacterial ingredient that has been used in other products to treat skin conditions like acne. Until now, using BPO to treat rosacea might have caused skin irritation, but microencapsulation technology has helped change that.15,16 These microcapsules gradually release BPO to relieve rosacea while remaining tolerable, so you can use it daily, or as prescribed.16,17
A significant number of patients had clearer skin in 14 days with EPSOLAY.15,21
The active ingredient in SOOLANTRA® (ivermectin) Cream, 1%‡ is ivermectin, which is reported to have anti-parasitic and anti-inflammatory properties.22,23 SOOLANTRA Cream effectively improves rosacea bumps and blemishes with a powerful medication that is formulated with a gentle moisturizing base.24
In a 12-week clinical trial, subjects using SOOLANTRA Cream saw a reduction of symptoms in just 2 weeks.18 Many subjects saw their skin improve in appearance over the course of the study.18
MIRVASO® (brimonidine) topical gel, 0.33%† is an alpha-adrenergic agonist indicated for the topical treatment of persistent (nontransient) facial erythema of rosacea in adults 18 years of age or older.17
MIRVASO topical gel is the first FDA-approved treatment developed and indicated for persistent (nontransient) facial redness of rosacea. Facial redness is a common symptom of rosacea, a skin condition that affects an estimated 16 million Americans.4
