What causes back acne?

back acne

Back acne is caused by a number of factors, however the root of it is a buildup of skin debris, oils, fat, and keratin. Back acne is also caused by poor hygiene habits such as not changing bed sheets or wearing the same t-shirt to bed on a nightly basis. Not changing linens can cause a build-up of debris, that the skin is continually exposed to and can result in unwanted pimples.

Acne is also commonly caused by hormonal changes and imbalances. In order to find out the root cause of your acne, consult a healthcare practitioner. In order to get rid of unwanted acne, consult one of our staff members to discuss laser acne treatments. Click here to book a free consultation, and read below to learn more about our technology.


Will laser treatments help my back acne?

If you commit to laser treatment that targets back acne, know that you will be receiving a highly effective, safe method of addressing skin issues. The precision of technology by Alma Lasers™ cannot be understated.

IPL & Pixel™ treatments

If you are looking for an effective acne treatment that offers dramatic results, consider booking a free consultation at LightTouch Med Spa™ to discuss Pixel™ treatments.

We use a two step process to get rid of unwanted back acne. First, using IPL technology (Intense Pulsed Light), we will work to kill the Acne P Virus and reduce pink inflammation and breakouts. Afterwards, Pixel™ technology will be used to resurface the skin, removing damaged skin and returning the skin to its former healthy foundation. Fractional, non-ablative resurfacing treatments are the safest, most effective approach to improving skin complexion and removing acne scars on any area of the body.


How do I care for my skin post-treatment?

  • Wear loose-fitting clothing

  • Use tea tree oil to kill bacteria on skin
