    There is a review here of platelet rich plasma for rosacea, although the person did get it provided for free I think by the doctor:

    Interesting find if it lasted year as a treatment (although the author of the blog mentions it lasted 6months). It also seems less destructive than laser treatment too.

    Botox when expertly applied is a more tried and tested method to reduce redness, though it does need repeated every 5-6 months. PRP may be more permanent if repeated but there is very little evidence of its success yet. Botox is probably cheaper in general as well, though well worth paying for a very good doctor who is experienced in using it to treat rosacea (such doctors are few and far between). Botox is now available on the NHS as a headache treatment.

    I have read about Botox but i would be concerned about about adding foreign material into my skin. As i rosacea which overlaps with psoriasis. I prefer the idea of something that heals the skin.

    I think because so little plasma treatment has been done so far in rosacea, it's not really clear that it heals the skin on a permanent basis rather than simply rejuvenates it temporarily.

    I agree there is very little documented, i just think it would be great to get out of the damaging cycle. I donít think I can ever stop the rhinophyma I have. But if I can slow it down some what that would be beneficial.
