We have a new case of ACNE infection with a new customer. It is known as Folliculitis or Sycosis Barbae or Pseudo folliculitis Barbae.
PFB is a chronic disease occurring in genetically predisposed individuals. It is precipitated by hair removal and characterized by itchy, painful papules, and pustules. It is seen in individuals with curly, thick hair, especially those of African and, to a lesser extent, Asian descent. Although it is commonly seen in the beard area, it can occur in other areas with terminal hairs that are frequently shaved. Paying close attention to hair grooming methods may reduce its occurrence. Topical steroids, retinoic acid, keratolytic, and antibiotics are useful adjuncts in management. Definitive therapy involves the removal of the hair follicle using lasers.
In layman term, it is inflammation caused by hair growth. Bacteria accumulates and causes inflammation. When inflammation is not treated it develops into pigmentation and scars.
The curved shape of the hair follicle allows for the downward curvature and penetration of the growing hair tips into the skin. The onset of the foreign body reaction leads to itching and the development of papules, pustules, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, especially in the beard area.
We’re confident in the beautiful results of our clarifying laser facial.
And we have a feeling you’ll love it.
