It’s likely that you have experienced a breakout across your back and shoulders at least once. Back acne or ‘bacne’ is a common concern amongst both men and women.
This is because your back goes through a lot on a daily basis such as sweat, contact with different fabrics, and glands that accumulate serum due to lack of skincare. This sebum build-up can clog hair follicles and pores leading to blackheads, whiteheads, and cystic acne.
There are many contributing factors that lead to bacne and its severity can vary from a few spots here and there to larger breakouts and redness. If left untreated, it’s not uncommon to have dark spots and scars after the acne heals.
What causes back acne, aka bacne?
While the intricacies differ, the overarching things that cause breakouts tend to be the same—whether it be chin acne, chest acne, and even neck acne. However, when it comes to back acne, there are some specific causes.
The reasons for acne appearing on our backs are similar to the reasons acne appears elsewhere, which comes around as a result of excess sebum production, which is the natural oil produced by the sebaceous glands in our skin, after which a build-up of dead skin cells which mix with the sebum gets trapped in our pores,
The HydraFacial Clarifying Back Treatment is the best way to deeply clean, decongest, hydrate, and protect the neglected skin on your back. By removing dead skin cells that are dulling your complexion and infusing your skin with essential vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants, we can clear the pores, refine your skin texture, and repair damage.
What To Expect?
The process is much the same as when we treat the face. With a larger tip to cover a greater area more efficiently, we will deeply cleanse the back and shoulders, exfoliating and loosening the bonds between dead skin cells to completely remove all the build-up that clogs your pores and cause breakouts. After the extraction phase, we then infuse the skin with powerful serums that treat, hydrate and protect.
The treatment utilizes a five-part method that contributes to the resurfacing of the skin:
Physical exfoliation from water pressure and a textured tip,
Chemical exfoliation from acids such as glycolic and salicylic,
Suction to lift dead skin cells off the surface
Blue Light Therapy can help to clear acne
Followed by Localized Cryotherapy to calm and relax the skin
HydraFacial combines multiple stages to detoxify the skin, remove dead skin cells, extract debris, and provide lasting hydration. Although you can expect to see a difference with one treatment, a course of treatments is advisable for longer-lasting and dramatic improvements in acne, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, texture, and dryness.
