Buy Mirvaso Gel

Mirvaso is a topical rosacea treatment containing the active ingredient brimonidine, a type of medicine known as alpha agonists. Facial redness associated with rosacea is caused by high levels of blood flow to the skin, which is the result of enlargement of the blood vessels in the skin. Mirvaso works by narrowing these blood vessels, therefore reducing blood flow and redness. 



Always use Mirvaso exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. It is recommended that Mirvaso is applied to the face once a day only. Start with a pea-sized amount and increase gradually if your symptoms remain the same or improve only slightly. Do not exceed the maximum daily dose of 1 gram (5 pea-sized amounts applied to the face). 


Side Effects

Like all medicines, Mirvaso may cause side effects in some people, but these won’t affect everybody. Seek emergency medical attention if you notice any signs of a severe allergic reaction, symptoms of which include swelling of the face and throat, skin rash, breathing difficulties and/or loss of consciousness. Common side effects include: 

  • Flushing
  • Excessive whitening where the gel is applied
  • Skin redness
  • Burning feeling of the skin
  • Itching 

For more information about uncommon and rare side effects, refer to the patient information leaflet. If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.



Mirvaso may be unsuitable for certain people. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients or if you are taking a type of medicine called monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors used to treat depression or Parkinson’s disease. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before using Mirvaso if: 

  • The skin on your face is irritated or has open wounds
  • You have problems with your heart or blood circulation
  • You have depression
  • You experience a fall in blood pressure when standing up
  • You have Sjögren's syndrome 
  • You have ever had kidney or liver problems
  • You have had, or plan to have any laser procedure on the skin of your face
  • You are taking any other medicines (refer to the patient information leaflet)

Age Restrictions

Mirvaso is not suitable for children and should only be used by adults aged 18 and over. If your child is suffering with rosacea, ask their doctor or pharmacist for suitable treatment options.
