Back Acne Scars Treatment
Back acne scars may not be as noticeable as facial scarring but they can be just as embarrassing and annoying. Back acne is often caused by problems with hygiene and sweat trapped from tight fitting clothing. Pores on the back may become blocked up with the trapped sweat and can then become inflamed and infected. Hormones can also cause back acne. Because the skin is much thicker on the back than what it is on the face, back acne can be harder to treat that facial acne. If you have been unfortunate enough to have suffered from back acne and have been left with back acne scars then you might be happy to know that there are treatments options available to clear up your back and give you back smooth, clear skin. The first treatment option is to exfoliate your skin regularly. You can use a loofah and a body scrub and exfoliate your back a couple of times a week. This will get rid of the old dead skin cells and will also stop your pores from blocking up and causing further acne. Another treatment option is to use creams or lotions to help reduce or get rid of your scars. There are different over the counter creams available and your doctor may even prescribe a cream. There are also some natural creams and lotions available that may assist with removing acne scars. Microdermabrasion is another treatment and with this procedure the top layer of skin is removed using a machine. It is almost like a sanding machine sanding the top layer of skin off, leaving the new, smooth skin underneath. When the top layer of skin is removed some of the scars are also removed. You may need a few treatments of microdermabrasion to remove your scars completely. Another treatment is chemical peels which work in a similar way to microdermabrasion in that it removes the top layer of skin, but with this procedure it is done using chemicals. This procedure may also require more than one treatment before getting the results that you want. The type of chemicals that are used for the chemical peel may depend on the skin type. Laser resurfacing treatment is another very effective method for removing back acne scars. Laser resurfacing treatment is one of the most effective treatments however it is a little more invasive than the others. Often a person may only require one or two treatments of laser resurfacing to have good results, but sometimes it may require more treatments. If you are looking for a method to get rid of back acne scars then try one of these treatments and see how much better your skin looks. Even though these scars may be on your back where they aren't all that noticeable to you, they may still make you feel embarrassed for others to see. So don't put up with ugly scars, start treatment and get your clear skin back.
