How to Get Rid of Back Acne
- Posted on: Mar 15 2016
Back acne, or bacne, is not only highly uncomfortable but it can be embarrassing as well. Not only can it be humiliating to be seen in a swimming suit during the summer but things like tank tops can also become your worst nightmare. If you have back acne and want to get rid of it as soon as possible, read on to learn more.
When it comes to fighting off any sort of acne, you have three different options to choose from: over-the-counter, spa, or prescription options. Depending on the severity of your back acne, it will help you determine what option is right for you.
Products like over-the-counter body washes contain ingredients like salicylic acid which work to target your acne and dry it up— leaving you with a pimple free back. Simply apply a small amount of acne body wash to a back brush or sponge and rub it across the skin on your back. If you don’t notice any results after using the body wash every day for a few weeks, it might be time to see a professional.
Another option to help aid against your back acne is to visit the Cara Mia Medical Day Spa. Through treatments such as back facials, our experts can target your acne and treat it in a way that will dry it up and give you smoother looking skin.
If all else fails, it’s time to schedule an appointment to see your dermatologist. A dermatologist will be able to look at the acne on your back and determine whether it’s likely bacterial, hormonal, or caused by some sort of allergic reaction. Once the cause has been determined, your dermatologist will likely prescribe you with either an oral pill or an antibiotic cream to rub or body wash to rub on your back.
As you can see there are several options available to treat your back acne. If you are sick of spending your days at the beach with t-shirt covering your back, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Cara Mia Medical Day Spa. Contact our office today!
