Abstract: 

Flushing is a condition with episodic attacks of redness of the skin with a sensation of warmth or burning, this disease causes emotional and functional problems in patients. There is various treatments for this condition; one of them is the use of botulinum toxin A (BTA). In this prospective pilot study we studied the effect of Botulinum toxin A (BTA) effect on DLQI of patients with facial flushing, we compared the DLQI before and after treatment. The number of 24 women with facial flushing admitted to the department of dermatology of Hamadan Farshchian Hospital, with the age range of 18 to 60 was enrolled in the study.
Patients completed Dermatology Quality of life Index questionnaire before and one month after treatment. In our study 1 unit of BTA was injected intracutaneously per square cm in both sides of cheeks, to a total dose of 30 units per session. All of 24 patients completed the study. The mean age was 37.79±13.13. In all patients, DLQI decreased, and in two months follow up, the mean of DLQI improved from 8.08±1.17 to 4.5±1.21 (P. value<0.005). Based on this study BTA is an effective and safe treatment for facial flushing.
