Best Treatments for Rosacea
There recently have been some trials with Botox as a treatment for Rosacea. However, there are many more effective and easier treatments including newer topical medicines such as Mirvaso and Soolantra. These medications combined with the V-Beam (which is the gold standard for Rosacea) is really all that you need. In severe cases, oral antibiotics may be necessary. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise with lasers and rosacea.

Another option you don't mention having tried is the prescription vasoconstrictor Mirvaso (made by Galderma). Used daily, it can reduce baseline redness in many patients.
I hope this answer had been helpful.
There are also several newer topical agents, including topical brimonidine (Mirvaso) that can effectively address erythema of rosacea if used on a daily basis.
