Ask the Acne Expert: What’s the Best Treatment for Post-Pimple Redness?

Posted in Laser Acne Treatments by . | Leave a Comment
Post-pimple redness is frustrating - you are likely thrilled that the pimple has resolve and are ready to move on; unfortunately, that red mark on your skin serves as a reminder of the pimple that used to be there.  Acne expert, Dr. Schweiger, explains that, "Inflammation on the skin, due to the previous acne in that area, results in the formation of a condition called post-inflammatory erythema.  Post-inflammatory erythema is the medical term for post-pimple redness." The best treatment for post-pimple redness is a combination of treatments with the KTP laser and the Laser Genesis.  These lasers each work in a unique way to improve the appearance of redness on the skin.  The KTP laser is a vascular laser; its energy is absorbed in the hemoglobin (a portion of the red blood cells) of the skin.  The KTP laser results in the collapse of superficial blood vessels that lead to the appearance of redness on the skin.  The Laser Genesis is a different type of laser, but it works in a similar fashion.  It too decreases the appearance of redness on the skin by causing the collapse of superficial blood vessels that contribute to the appearance of post-pimple redness. Upon meeting with an acne and acne scar specialist at the Clear Clinic, we can recommend the best course of treatment for your post-pimple redness.  Some topical creams, including retinoids and azeleic acid, can help to improve the appearance of redness on the skin.  While these topical medications do not produce a dramatic improvement on their own for most patients, they can be used in combination with laser treatments to achieve the best treatment possible for post-pimple redness.
