These are the hallmark symptoms of rosacea. The condition is not only physically uncomfortable, but can also cause people significant embarrassment, even affecting their confidence in social situations. A survey of rosacea sufferers conducted by the National Rosacea Society found that 76 percent of respondents reported lowered self-confidence and self-esteem due to the effect of rosacea on their appearance, and nearly half of the respondents said their rosacea negatively affected their outlook on life.
Rosacea is a common skin condition affecting more than 16 million Americans. It generally affects individuals over the age of 30 and is relatively easy to identify as it presents a recognizable pattern of redness and acne-like bumps on the cheeks, chin, forehead and nose.
The cause of rosacea is unknown and no cure exists. There are several theories about what may cause rosacea, though none offer conclusive evidence. Some believe rosacea is a vascular disorder as it often occurs in individuals who have fair skin and a history of flushing. It is known that rosacea flare-ups are often triggered by emotional stress. It has been suggested that a microscopic mite that normally inhabits the skin may be a contributor because of the increased numbers of mites often seen in patients with rosacea.
Increases in gastrin levels caused by the bacterium H. pylori have also been suggested as a possible cause. However, H. pylori is no more common in patients with rosacea than in those without the condition and therefore is not a likely culprit.
Rosacea is typically treated with medicated creams, lotions and oral antibiotics; however, these are not without their side effects. Topical creams such as metronidazole (METROGEL®), tretinoin (Renova®) and others contain acids that can further irritate the skin. Moreover, these topical treatments typically address just one element of the condition, such as redness or inflammatory lesions. Physicians may prescribe oral antibiotics to treat rosacea due to their anti-inflammatory effects, but antibiotics cannot be used long term because of their negative impact on essential gut bacteria. Long term antibiotic use can lead to digestive and other gastrointestinal issues.
PyratineXR® is the only available treatment for rosacea that addresses all three key symptoms of the condition and is the only rosacea treatment that can be used continuously long term with little or no side effects. Clinical studies at leading dermatological institutions have proven the effectiveness of the advanced cytokinin technology in PyratineXR®. Don’t suffer the discomfort and embarrassment of rosacea – you owe it to yourself to try PyratineXR®! PyratineXR® is the skin care line to end all lines.
Rosacea symptoms can include:
Commonly reported triggers of rosacea flare-ups include:
PyratineXR® uses an advanced cytokinin technology derived from plants and is nature identical. Unlike traditional treatments, PyratineXR® has been clinically proven to treat all three major symptoms of rosacea—redness, inflammatory lesions and spider veins, and PyratineXR® can be used long term with virtually no side effects. PyratineXR® is also a powerful moisturizer and good medical practice highly recommends moisturization for the treatment of rosacea.
Further, cytokinins are known to have potent anti-aging benefits and PyratineXR® is at the top of this class, significantly reducing fine lines, wrinkles, mottled hyperpigmentation, blotchiness and skin roughness. In multiple published clinical studies, investigators found PyratineXR® to provide multiple benefits, reducing facial redness, inflammatory papules and pustules, spider veins, fine lines, wrinkles, and mottled hyperpigmentation while significantly improving the skin’s texture with virtually no side effects. The significance of these findings cannot be underestimated as rosacea sufferers have sensitive, irritated and often inflamed skin, thus often not being able to tolerate many other products.
