Treatment of Facial Redness and PIE Post-Inflammatory Erythema

Excessive redness on the skin is a common concern among adults and teenagers with acne breakouts. In fact, any type of skin injury, particularly cystic acne, can cause prolonged redness known as post inflammatory erythema (PIE) in which the skin becomes hyper vascular and erythematous. Patients with postinflammatory erythema usually complain of excess of redness on the skin with scarring that does not subside despite many months of conservative therapy. If you are suffering from post inflammatory erythema and have active red scars that have not subsided despite aggressive or conservative management, a combination of topical and laser options are available to reduce the redness and restore your skin to its normal complexion.

Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a plastic surgeon and skin expert recommends a topical skin protocol that includes Plato's Scar Serum and Kareskin Elevase Moisture Booster to address the scarring and to replenish the skins natural moisture barrier function. By reducing the inflammation on the skin, the skin redness will subside and improve in complexion and tone. Along with this topical skin regimen, Dr. Karamanoukian recommends a series of pulsed dye laser treatments to further reduce the hypervascularity and scarring.

Elevase Moisture Booster contains natural ceramides that improve the skins natural moisture barrier function and can help reduce inflammation associated with skin injury. The moisturizing cream can help hydrate the skin and works alongside Plato scar serum to reduce scarring and skin sensitivity.
