    Default One More Topical To Keep an Eye On - Beta Glucan

    Hi Group,

    I have put a lot of time trying to figure out what products used for burn victims might have medical applications for rosacea. So far, at the top of the list is the prescriptin strenght growth factor creams clinically test on rosacea sufferers. Excellent results. Top notch.

    I have been visiting the Emergency Room at some of our sister hospitals (Clarian Health). They are using Beta-Glucan on first and second degree burns (not third). This is used for several reason:

    1. An extremely potent anti-inflammatory
    2. Very potent soothing qualities and abolishes burning sensations
    3. Cell renewal and epidermal thickner (just as good as the 20 growth factors).

    No studies on rosacea sufferers yet. But it is available. I would wait because rosacea trials by independent laboratories are on the way as they see a huge market with our disorder. I really like this product. Facial plastic surgeons have the most experience with this product and can actually show you how it immediately calms down skin redness post resurfacing procedures by placing it on one half of the face for just a few days. This will be a part of rosacea recovery in the future. Below is a short blurb.

    Today, Combining history and science, oat beta-glucan renewal cell complex is available for use in both medical and cosmetic applications. Originally formulated for use in intensive burn therapy, oat beta-glucan isused worldwide to aid in the burn recovery process. From burn therapy to cosmetic surgery, oat beta-glucan is used by plastic surgeons and dermatologists to ease discomfort and assist healing of facial resurfacing procedures such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Today, the anti-aging oat beta-glucan renewal cell complex is a direct extension of the medical benefits derived from this proven technology.

    Hey, Dr Nase.

    Happy New Year to you.

    Might these various skin thickening topicals compromise the efficacy of laser treatments?

    Thanks GJ. Right back at you.

    Love the question. This should have no effect on the new lasers. To explain. If these skin thickeners do their job and increase the epidermis be 100% to 150% this would be in increase in skin thickness of 0.5 microns to 1.5 microns (sounds like a trivial increase, but in reality, this is huge). The lasers nowadays routinely go down 3.0 microns to 5.5 microns. This should have no effect on laser treatments. In all honesty, hopefully we wont need to talk about lasers nearly as much.

    Have a good one GJ.
