Even though those who have facial acne may be more prone to body acne, you do not have to have acne issues on the face to develop body acne issues. Body acne can occur anywhere on the body where there are hair follicles, which means your back, chest, legs, arms, bikini area and butt are all susceptible to body acne. Body acne occurs mostly on the back, hence the term “bacne”
There are several different causes of body acne, such as stress, hormones, diet, and ingrown hairs, but the most common reasons you get body acne are from clogged pores. Sweat, dirt, and dead skin cells get trapped in the hair follicle causing bacteria to grow. Friction from your clothing, not showering after a workout, not changing your sheets regularly and sitting for prolonged periods of time can contribute to clogged pores.
Our treatment options for body acne include Hydrafacial MD, OxyGeneo, peels, and laser treatments.
