New York, NY: August 26, 2009
It was a hot, hot day when a gaggle of us went to the Meadowlands Stadium in NJ- for a major soccer match. The sold out game’s swarms of humans, the heat and humidity, and the abstract concept of crowd control didn’t phase us, but our gal pal looked positively ill, with a red flushed/blotchy face that had us thinking she wasn't going to make it.
But even seated in the shade and hydrated, she still looked weirdly “red” to us…with yech inflamed patches across the bridge of her nose sprawling out onto her cheeks.
And that’s characteristic of Rosacea.
Apparently, there are 14 million sufferers of Rosacea, a skin condition (with no known cure) that manifests itself via lesions (papules and pustules that resemble white heads/acne), redness (erythema), spider veins, dryness, and dark spots (or any combo thereof).
At its extreme, we think of WC Fields, though even mild cases are frankly, unattractive, let alone scream AGING.
We were very excited to discover- in our inbox no less---- a new treatment for mild to moderate cases of Rosacea that lessen the aforementioned undesirable skin conditions: PYRATINE XR™
Scientifically tested in an initial 12- week clinical study- with published results (Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, a prestigious peer reviewed read- May 2009)…PYRATINE XR™ (lotion or cream)- measurably improved skin conditions in 80% of test subjects.
PYRATINE XR™ is the product name for a second-generation cytokinin based treatment product. (Cytokinins are plant derived growth factors that encourage cell division and retard the aging process).
For us it was good to know that PYRATINE XR™ is one of several products from Senetek PLC, the makers of the best selling Kinerase® === bevy of products. (The poreless Courtney Cox is the spokesperson).
As far as skin rejuvenation goes, everyone is vying for that fountain of youth…and there is a staggering number of products on the market that can (somewhat) effectively deal with the signs of aging.
What we liked about PYRATINE XR™ is that first off, it’s non-irritating like some retinoids (Renova, Retin-A). Also the lotion or cream can be used for a loooonnnnggg time unlike other rosacea treatments, i.e. Metrogel…
And it’s a multi-functional solution…unlike targeted treatments no one has the time to apply. In fact, there was a 48 week follow-up study that “…showed significant decrease in the appearance of papules and pustules associated with inflammatory skin conditions such as Rosacea, as well as a significant decrease in the appearance of redness,” according to Dr. Mark S, Nesto, a Board Certified Dermatologist, dermatologic surgeon and laser surgeon practicing in Aventura, Florida.
“We see improvement in the appearance of fine lines and brown spots, and other aspects of sun damage and aging of the skin.”
AND FYI: We tried it under our eyes…so we can vouch for the non-irritation…cause we have a teeny brown spot that is so not a beauty mark.
Price wise, a $120 tube …both the cream and the lotion are packaged similarly…should last two months if applied over the entire face, twice a day.
