Abstract

Oil rose of mosqueta (Rosa aff.Rubiginosa L) was used on 52 patient with dry skin who have completed the treatment with isotretinoin and remained with serious scars. The results have been compared with a control group with the same characteristics who were treated with isotretinoin before september 1988. The parameters studied have been the time of loss of erythema and the deep/hard-edged scars on forehead and cheek. The sebumetries have served as control to stop the application of the oil when the skin was 'oily', although desireable effects have not been obtained. The corneometries, performed only on 38 patients, have not given data that we know is of value. The results have been considered very good in 82,69%, good in 15,38% and medium/poor in 1,92%. According to the control group, the results have been significant with p < 0,0001 at the time of disappearence of erythema as in the elevation of the base and softening of the scar edges.
