    Default Tranexamic Acid Solution

    There is a new cheap treatment using tranexamic acid solution (Transamin inj/sol 500 mg/5 mL) infused wet dressing for erythematotelangiectatic rosacea. The results of an unblinded study of 20 patients resulted with "All patients were improved in the end of the therapy....The improvement lasted more than four months."

    Hi Brady

    Do you know if there is a product available on the market as trialled in this study? I think at the moment you can only get an oral drug formulation of tranexamic acid (which unfortunately will have the wrong impact for rosacea I think because it causes coagulation). Tranexamic acid is available in various combination formations (e.g. in skin lightening products) but I'm not sure if it's easily available in the formulation as used in the study.

    I think this would have to be applied by a doctor or their assistant using dressings at the doctor's practice, rather than being available in a prescription format to be used at home.

    Thank you very much for your reply. When I clicked on the link I went through to a page on your site that was only a abstract for the study. Is this the right link? Thanks again for your help - I'm very interested to find high quality products with this ingredient in.

    Thanks Brady. Perhaps the dressings using the IV t. acid available on prescription are the best form to try, to achieve the same results of the study.

    Im not quite sure if I understood the study correctly. They mention "using tranexamic acid solution (Transamin inj/sol 500 mg/5 mL) infused wet dressing". Does that mean they are injecting the solution under the skin? Sorry I have some language problems here

    Apparently they soak a dressing (a gauze pad) in a solution of 500 mg of tranexamic acid using 5mL of water. Take the wet dressing and apply it to the skin. I am not sure why they use the 'inj'? Maybe Tom Busby can clarify?

    There are over the counter wet pads available that are similar.

    Probably because they have a fixed concentration, so its better for a scientific study.
    I would like to give it a try, to see if it works. However its an ingredient that is used in skin lightening creams, as already mentioned. Im afraid it will lighten up my skin, which is something I dont want.
