MORE THAN 16 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE THE SKIN CONDITION KNOWN AS ROSACEA.
THERE'S A NEW CREAM THAT COULD HELP MANY OF THOSE PEOPLE GET A BETTER HANDLE ON THE FACIAL REDNESS THAT CHARACTERIZES THIS ALL-TOO-COMMON SKIN CONDITION.
YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE DIFFERENT FACES OF ROSACEA, A SKIN CONDITION THAT CAN CAUSE VISIBLE BLOOD VESSELS, BUMPS, PIMPLES, FLUSHING AND REDNESS.
"The redness and flushing can be very debilitating. People don't want to be seen like that."
DOCTOR MARK NESTOR SAYS IT'S NOT LIFE-THREATENING, BUT IT'S OFTEN LIFE-ALTERING. A STUDY BY THE NATIONAL ROSACEA SOCIETY FOUND 76-PERCENT OF PEOPLE SAY ROSACEA HAS LOWERED THEIR SELF-ESTEEM. 41- PERCENT SAY THEY'VE CANCELED SOCIAL ENGAGEMENTS BECAUSE OF IT, LIKE BEATRIZ BOTON, WHO SAYS IT'S BEEN A CONSTANT SOURCE OF EMBARRASSMENT FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS.
"People - "Oh, your face is red. Your face is red, and you feel like I know it's red, but I have a medical condition!"
NOW, A NEW CREAM, PYRATINE X-R, REDUCES THE APPEARANCE OF REDNESS, SOMETHING VERY FEW PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO. "The studies have been very promising, shown very effective. Our patients have also been very happy with the effect of this."
ONE 48-WEEK STUDY BY THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT IRVINE SHOWED SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT IN 80 PERCENT OF PATIENTS, INCLUDING A 90 PERCENT REDUCTION IN THE APPEARANCE OF LESIONS. BEATRIZ HAS USED THE CREAM FOR MORE THAN A MONTH.
"So far, I really like it. So far, I've been feeling much better."
AND NO LONGER RED IN THE FACE WHEN SHE'S INTERACTING WITH OTHERS.
THE CREAM NOT ONLY HELPS REDNESS DUE TO ROSACEA BUT CAN ALSO IMPROVE REDNESS FROM IRRITATION AND SENSITIVE SKIN.
