Press Release: Cellex-C Skin Firming Cream Helps Reduce Rocasea Symptoms
HELPS REDUCE ROSACEA SYMPTOMS
Dr. R. B. Carlin, of Saddleback Memorial Hospital in Laguna Hills, California, utilized an adapted version of Cellex-Cís Skin Firming Cream containing the principal ingredient of 5% L-ascorbic acid, plus tyrosine and zinc on patients with Acne Rosacea -- a chronic, progressive inflammatory dermatosis of the face exacerbated by free radical production. The studyís premise was that vitamin C could prove to be an effective therapeutic agent for acne rosacea since vitamin Cís antioxidant properties have been shown to decrease UV-induced free radicals when applied topically and used systemically.
Twelve patients (7 women, 5 men) with stage 1 acne rosacea [facial erythema] and stage 2 acne rosacea [papules, postules and enlarged pores] applied Cellex-C Skin Firming Cream to one side of their face and a placebo to the other every morning. To parallel a real-world clinical situation, the patients were invited to continue applying their current topical medications at night (to avoid mixing them with the test products) and were encouraged to apply sunscreen and make-up in the morning after applying the test products. After three weeks, the patients reported any noticeable difference from four areas on each side of the face as well as observing degrees of redness.
Moreover, Dr. Carlin concluded that Cellex-Cís patented formulation may well have a culminative effect that could surpass the effect of vitamin C administered alone, and that other products with higher vitamin C content and greater acidity may not yield the same results. Therefore, those Cellex-C products containing the same patented complex especially Skin Firming Cream Plus or Eye Contour Cream would be helpful for rosacea patients.
