Abstract
Post-acne erythema (PAE) is one of the major problems during or aftertreatment of acne vulgaris with any modality. A variety of therapeuticoptions have been described with various clinical outcomes and sideeffects. We report here on treating a patient with PAE using 595-nmpicosecond-domain neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG)laser. After four sessions of treatment, the patient displayed nearlycomplete improvement and no remarkable adverse effects. To the bestof the authors’ knowledge, this is the first case of the effective treatmentof PAE using a 595-nm picosecond-domain Nd:YAG laser. Werecommend that using a 595-nm picosecond-domain Nd:YAG laser canbe both an effective and safe treatment option for treating PAE.
