          El Aloe vera es una planta de uso popular en el tratamiento de algunas enfermedades de la piel y de aplicación frecuente en la cosmetología. Forma parte de diversas cremas o geles, siendo usado como antiinflamatorio y reconstituyente del tejido epitelial. Aunque se conocen varios mecanismos de acción e indicaciones clínicas, se debe realizar una revisión de las mismas para su uso, avalados por ensayos controlados para determinar su eficacia real.

          The stimulation of postdermabrasion wound healing with stabilized aloe vera gel-polyethylene oxide dressing.

          Full-face dermabrasion provided an ideal opportunity to document the effects of dressings on wound healing management. Following the procedure, the abraded face was divided in half. One side was treated with the standard polyethylene oxide gel wound dressings. The other side was treated with a polyethylene oxide gel dressing saturated with stabilized aloe vera. The polyethylene oxide dressing provided an excellent matrix for the release of aloe vera gel during the initial 5 days of wound healing. By 24-48 hours there was dramatic vasoconstriction and accompanying reduction in edema on the aloe-treated side. By the third to fourth day there was less exudate and crusting at the aloe site, and by the fifth to sixth day the reepithelialization at the aloe site was complete. Overall, wound healing was approximately 72 hours faster at the aloe site. This acceleration in wound healing is important to reduce bacterial contamination, subsequent keloid formation, and/or pigmentary changes. The exact mechanism of acceleration of wound healing by aloe vera is unknown.
