Tratamiento de la pseudofoliculitis de la barba con un láser compacto Nd:YAG de 1064 nm utilizando tecnología de 650 microsegundos

Michael H. Gold, MD, Dermatología, Nashville, TN La pseudofoliculitis de la barba (PFB) es una reacción inflamatoria de cuerpo extraño causada por vellos encarnados. El PFB ocurre con mayor frecuencia en las áreas de la barba del 45 % al 83 % de los hombres afroamericanos que se afeitan.1 Cuando se afeita el cabello rizado y grueso, las puntas se vuelven puntiagudas. Estas puntas afiladas, ya sea por penetración extrafolicular o transfolicular, crecen en la piel y dan lugar a la formación de pústulas y pápulas dolorosas y pruriginosas.1, 2 En la penetración extrafolicular, la punta afilada del vello se curva hacia atrás hacia la piel y perfora la epidermis cerca del folículo piloso, 3 luego continúa hacia abajo hasta la dermis. Las reacciones inflamatorias ocurren tanto en la epidermis como en la dermis. La penetración transfolicular ocurre cuando el afeitado se realiza a contrapelo y la punta puntiaguda del vello crece hacia abajo y perfora la pared folicular, lo que resulta en pápulas inflamatorias.4 Hay una variedad de terapias disponibles para el tratamiento de la PFB. La depilación quirúrgica se asocia con una alta morbilidad,5 los agentes tópicos (corticosteroides, retinoides y antibióticos) rara vez eliminan todas las pápulas y pústulas,6 los depilatorios químicos pueden irritar la piel,6 y la electrólisis requiere trabajo intensivo.5 Los alfahidroxiácidos y exfoliaciones químicas han sido útiles en algunos pacientes.1 También se han utilizado láseres para tratar la PFB, incluyendo el de alejandrita de pulso largo,7 Nd:YAG de conmutación Q,8 de rubí9 y de diodo de 800 nm5,10,11. Los procedimientos tradicionales con láser, aunque efectivos, están limitados por la incomodidad del paciente y los tiempos de curación prolongados, ambos debido al daño cutáneo inducido por el calor. Este informe presenta dos de los cuatro estudios de caso que describen el uso de un nuevo láser compacto Nd:YAG de 1064 nm que utiliza tecnología de micropulso para el tratamiento de la PFB.
