Back acne Scar Marks Treatment
Back acne, or bacne, occurs when skin on the back breaks out with blackheads and pimples. Deep and severe breakouts are more likely to lead to stubborn back acne scars. Back skin has a high concentration of sebaceous glands which congest hair follicles with dry skin cells and oils. This leads to the formation of blackheads, whiteheads, lesions, and cysts. Acne can occur on skin at any point of the age as a result of poor diet, dehydration, hormone disorders, puberty, menstruation, and even certain cosmetics and cleansing products. Many of us experience acne on other parts of the body, such as the back, neck, and chest. Women can experience acne at different stages of life. For instance, it’s very common for a woman to have inflamed acne outbreaks during pregnancy.
Acne scars can leave women choosing against backless dresses and men avoiding activities like swimming that would mean they had to take off their shirt.
It can also be triggered if heat and sweat are trapped in the area by things like athletic equipment, tight-fitting clothing or backpacks.
Acne may go away, but pimples can leave behind scars if they are popped or rubbed vigorously.
- Are the scars located in the upper skin layers (epidermis)? This type is easier to treat and fade faster than those that extend into deeper skin layers.
- Is the skin discolored? When we pop a pimple we trigger increased production of melanin, turning the skin red, pink, or purple. These scars can be treated to reduce inflammation, which will help the skin return to its natural color.
