Body Acne and Bacne

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Starting from the neck and down to lower back, is one area on the body that has a large amount of oil glands. The friction forces a combo of surface sweat, dirt, and oils back into the pores, which clogs them and spurs those inflamed pesky bumps, known as bacne. There are certain methods that can prevent this skin disorder known as back acne and body acne. But before jumping into the prevention methods, lets first define the difference between facial and body acne.

Difference between Facial Acne and Body Acne

There is a slight difference between facial acne and body acne, though, which means the way in which we treat infected areas should also differ. ‘Bacne is very similar to facial acne in its symptoms and causes, but the treatment of it does differ,' says Andrea Craig, National Educator for Murad Skincare. 'The skin on your body has larger pores than facial pores which means they are far more likely to become clogged, it’s best to look for products that are specifically designed for the body to treat bacne’.
Some skin conditions have no known cause. A combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental stressors . These include illness, allergens, or exposure to irritants.

How to Prevent Bacne?

  • Careful with what you wear
  • Scope out your scalp
  • Use scrub for your back
  • Visit a medically trained professional
Caution: Avoid the use of products that expose your skin to different allergies. We do lose billions of skin cells every day from our bodies, so helping the process along isn’t such a bad thing. In fact, it makes sense to remove dead skin cells before they clog pores and become pimples. Use Chemical Peels technique to exfoliate skin and generate new cell growth, and are often used in combination with acne creams or gels to allow the medication to penetrate further into the skin. Potential risks include redness, blisters, scaling and crusting, scarring, infection, and abnormal skin coloring.

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *
