IPL Permanent Hair Removal Post-Treatment Care and Maintenance

Body acne, just like facial acne, can be a frustrating and confidence-damaging to anyone of us. It affects various parts of the body, such as the back, chest, shoulders, and buttocks. Understanding the causes and types of body acne is crucial in finding effective treatment solutions. In this blog post, we will delve into the common causes of body acne and explore the potential benefits of EstheClinic’s Intensive Acne Treatment.


What Causes Body Acne?

Body acne is primarily caused by similar factors as facial acne. These include:

  1. Hormonal Imbalances: Hormonal fluctuations during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, or stress can trigger excessive oil production, leading to clogged pores and acne breakouts.
  2. Excessive Sebum Production: The sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum, which can become excessive and clog the pores when overactive. This creates a favourable environment for acne-causing bacteria.
  3. Bacterial Infection: P. acnes, a bacterium commonly found on the skin, can multiply rapidly in clogged pores, leading to inflammation and acne breakouts.
  4. Dead Skin Cells: Accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin can mix with sebum and clog the hair follicles, resulting in acne.
  5. Friction and Pressure: Wearing tight clothing, carrying backpacks, or excessive rubbing against the skin can irritate the hair follicles and contribute to the development of body acne.


Types of Body Acne: Body acne can manifest in different forms, including:

  1. Back Acne (Bacne): This is the most common type of body acne, appearing as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or cysts on the back. Bacne can be particularly stubborn and challenging to treat.
  2. Chest Acne: Chest acne is characterized by red bumps, pustules, or inflamed cysts on the chest area. It can be triggered by sweating, tight clothing, or irritation from certain fabrics.
  3. Shoulder Acne: Shoulder acne often occurs as small red bumps or pustules on the shoulders. It may be aggravated by friction from bra straps or heavy bags.
  4. Butt Acne: Also known as buttne, this type of acne appears as red bumps or pustules on the buttocks. Butt acne can be exacerbated by sitting for long periods, sweating, or wearing tight clothing.


EstheClinic Intensive Acne Treatment

EstheClinic offers a comprehensive Intensive Acne Treatment program that can effectively address body acne concerns. This non-invasive treatment combines advanced technologies to target the root causes of acne and promote clearer, healthier skin.

The exclusive Intensive Acne Removal Programme, which effectively and safely tackles inflammatory adult acne and acne scars, takes place in two steps:

Step 1. Our award-winning Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL) is used in combination with our patented No Pain System for your guaranteed comfort. Emitting high-intensity pulses of light at the problem area stimulates collagen production, minimises pores and erases tell-tale acne scars all at once. Blotchy red skin doesn’t stand a chance with this ultra-soothing facial treatment. Expect a calmer, even skin tone and a more youthful visage with no downtime necessary.

Step 2. Our Light-emitting diodes (LED) treatment comes next to give your inflamed skin some sweet relief! A precise sequence of intensive but non-thermal blue and red light pulses are directed at the problem area to quickly and effectively kill acne-causing bacteria deep within the pores. With acne breakouts calmed, the treatment relieves the skin, allowing it to begin the repair process.


EstheClinic’s Intensive Acne Treatment is tailored to the unique needs of each individual, ensuring a customized approach and optimal results.
