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

Unfortunately, most lasers cause heat-induced skin damage on skin of color patients, which make up the majority of PFB cases. Only one laser has been shown to be the safest option for reducing PFB on skin of color patients — the 650-microsecond Nd:YAG laser.

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.

Before and After

“The Neo uses a unique pulse duration shorter than the relaxation time of the skin, so the treatment is safer and gentler on skin of color — even without the use of skin cooling or anesthetic. It has revolutionized treatment for skin of color, including PFB and hair removal.”

Reported No Side Effects

“PFB can have a negative impact on the self-esteem of both women and men. I conducted a study on patient self-esteem before and after treating their PFB with the Neo. Not only did the patients love the laser treatment, but their self-esteem raised significantly after their course of treatments.”

Reduction in PFB After 8 Treatments

Another study also showed substantial clearing of PFB after 8 treatments. Another patient in the study saw nearly complete resolution of PFB after only 5 treatments.

Clinically-Proven to Effectively Reduce PFB

Studies have shown the Neo to be effective at reducing PFB. In one study, patients began to see improvement in their PFB after only 2 treatments and a marked improvement (>75% reduction) after 8 treatments.

“PFB represents a serious problem for many of my patients. This led me to evaluate all of the technologies on the market. After a thorough evaluation, the best choice proved to be the Neo from Aerolase with its 650-microsecond technology. The laser delivered high treatment efficacy coupled with very low patient discomfort. Patients showed visible improvement even after a single procedure.”
