6 tips to help prevent and minimize back acne

Warm weather often means beach days, sunshine, patio drinks, and showing some skin. For those that suffer from back acne, the heat and change in clothing can be worrisome. Most people experience some form of acne during puberty and even well into adulthood.

Here at Clearview MediSpa, our Fractora skin treatment uses radiofrequency energy to reduce acne scarring and redness for a clearer complexion. Not only is it safe for all skin tones, but the side effects of recovery are minimal, and there is little to no downtime or discomfort. Take action against your back acne with Fractora acne treatment and our helpful tips below. You deserve to show off your style and your smooth, clear skin.

What is back acne?

Back acne is a common skin condition that shows up as blackheads, pimples, whiteheads, and oily skin. It can appear on the face, chest, and other areas as well. Acne marks and scars are commonly visible and leftover from the pimples and blemishes. The cause of acne can be hormonal and comes from overactive oil glands and sebum, which clog pores with dirt and bacteria. The foods you eat, your lifestyle, and your genetics can contribute to acne as well. Acne can vary in severity from person to person, which is why most treatments are not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Oral Medications

If you suffer from severe acne, you will need to consult your healthcare provider who may prescribe oral medication to regulate your hormones and ease your acne. Some treatments include antibiotics or birth control pills. If you decide to go this route, it’s important to discuss it with your doctor and be aware of any potential side effects of the treatment.

Topical Medications

Some topical medications, such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, have been known to help treat and clear up mild and moderate acne. Within a few weeks of regular use on the affected area, your skin should clear up. If you want to get rid of your back acne, it’s also important to follow some simple rules when showering and taking care of your skin. First of all, cleanse your skin gently in the shower and do not rub or be abrasive when treating the affected areas. Also, stay clear of harsh skin products with fragrances and ingredients that could irritate your acne further.

Wear Sun Protection

It goes without saying that you need to be wearing sunscreen every day to protect your skin from damaging UV rays and skin cancer. Unfortunately, the sun can also darken acne scars and worsen discolouration. So, always remember to put on sunscreen before heading outdoors and properly apply it on your back, even if it means getting someone else to lotion you up.

Wear Cotton for Comfort

If you want to keep back acne away, consider wearing loose-fitting clothes more often, especially when working up a sweat. Tight clothes hug the body and often trap sweat and dirt that can accumulate during a workout session or jog in the park. Sweat and dirt that lingers on the skin for too long can cause breakouts, so remember to take a shower right after any heavy sweating. Wearing cotton is a bonus, as it absorbs excess moisture and helps the skin stay clean and dry.

No Popping or Picking

One of the worst things you can do if you suffer from acne or back acne is to pick at existing pimples and blemishes on the surface of the skin. Even if you feel the temptation, resist it! This is definitely one way to irritate your acne and cause even more breakouts. Dirt and bacteria from your hands and touching your face can cause more problems and leftover scars in the long run.

Fractora Acne Treatment

If you are looking for an acne treatment that actually works and will give you the results you desire, look no further than Fractora, which is a revolutionary treatment using radio-frequency energy to improve skin texture. Fractora can tighten pores, reduce wrinkles, and help improve scarring and active acne. As well as stimulating collagen production with heat directed below the dermis, Fractora can shrink the skin’s oil glands, which decreases troublesome sebum production and results in clearer skin for those with acne. Fractora can also target specific areas such as the back and chest area if those are the main concerns. The treatment is non-invasive with minimal downtime and is safe for all skin tones and types.

Don’t let the dreaded “bacne” get the best of you. Contrary to what you may believe, there are many treatments available to help clear your back acne fast and keep it away. Remember, if acne (and back acne) is left untreated for prolonged periods of time, scars and dark spots can form.
