Service Description

PFB is an embarrassing condition that’s hard to treat. Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB) is an irritating skin condition most common in Fitzpatrick skin types IV through VI. Typically caused by shaving, patients with PFB suffer from ingrown hairs and bumps on the face, neck, and other areas of the body. PFB can also cause significant emotional and psychological distress and impact self-esteem and quality of life. In just one study, 60% of PFB patients said their condition had a moderate to severe impact on their self-esteem. Conventional hair removal methods, like electrolysis and depilatories, often don’t address PFB or can make the symptoms worse. Laser hair removal, however, has been shown to be the most effective treatment for PFB. Not All Lasers Are Safe for Skin of Color The Aerolase Neo Elite Nd:YAG laser safely reduces PFB on skin of color Thanks to its breakthrough 650-microsecond pulse technology, the Neo Elite 1064-nm laser is unmatched in terms of efficacy, safety, and gentleness for PFB on skin of color patients. Unlike other lasers: Its unique 650-microsecond pulse duration means the laser’s energy passes through the skin quickly and doesn’t overheat the epidermal melanin. It selectively targets melanin in the underlying hair and follicle and hyperpigmentation surrounding the lesion. It doesn’t cause pain, burning, or pigmentary changes and requires no skin cooling.
