How do you get rid of back acne scars?

Getting rid of back acne scars can be tiring that is why we have come up with this guide on how you can tackle bacne.

One of the most frustrating acne problem is bacne. It is especially frustrating as they are in hard-to-reach areas. Keep in mind that any breakout can lead to acne scars. Here, we have compiled beauty care tips and medical treatments that can help clear your skin and get rid of back acne scars.

What is acne?

Acne can be a painful skin disorders that affects both men and women at any age but it commonly happens during puberty. Although it is not serious health concern and is a common skin disease but it can result to scarring if left untreated.

There are four ways that acne breakouts can happen:

  • First, when you have excess oil production wherein your oil glands overproduces sebum. The excess sebum would then settle on the topmost layer of your skin and clogs up your pores. These clogged pores would then get inflamed and create different kinds of pimples.
  • Second, the presence of bacteria on your skin. The bacteria can grow on your skin and if you do not regularly wash your skin it can colonize and spread leading to a rapid acne breakout. These could result to pimples and irritation.
  • Oil and dead skin cells that can clogged up your hair follicles.
  • Hormone activity which can lead to excess androgen.

Acne is most common on the face, neck, back, shoulders, and chest. Scarring is possible in all areas, but because your back is difficult to reach, acne can be more common there. There are four types of acne lesions you can experience on your back:

Comedones are the whiteheads and blackheads common in most acne breakouts. Comedones happen when a single pore is clogged and fills with sebum and bacteria. A closed comedone stays under the skin and forms a white bump. When a comedo opens on the skin’s surface, the oil reacts with the air and turns blackish.

Pustules are pimples that contain pus inside and are red at the base because of inflammation and irritation.

Nodules are more painful because they are lodged deeper in the skin. They have a higher chance of leaving scars on the body.

Cysts are also deep within the skin and painful. They are like nodules, only they are pus-filled and have a higher chance of scarring.

    Frequently asked questions

    What causes acne?

    Acne may seem to pop up overnight, but its causes often run deep below the skin. There are many different reasons why acne appears on your back, including:

    Hormones from puberty: When girls reach puberty, their bodies start producing a sex hormone called androgen. Androgen is a male sex hormone that helps bodies mature into adulthood and causes oil glands to grow larger and produce an excess of sebum. Clogged pores and pimples are common among teens because of this.

    Hormones as an adult: Menstrual cycles also change the hormone flows in the body. Some women get pimples a few days before their period. This type of acne tends to disappear after their period is over because it’s directly caused by the presence of specific hormone levels.

    Medication: Certain medications commonly used for epilepsy and various types of depression are known to increase acne. If you’re taking one of these medications, being aware of this side effect can help you be prepared with remedies.

    Friction: When tight clothing like a bra strap constantly rubs on your skin, it can irritate the skin and force sebum into pores, clogging them and causing acne.

    Family history: Skin type and genetics play a role in how frequent your acne is. If you have several family members who suffer from frequent acne, there is a good chance you may experience it too.

    Types of acne scars

    There are many different types of scars that can develop from a bad breakout. If the acne wasn’t treated properly or was too damaging to the skin, scarring occurs.

    These are the various types of acne scars:

    Ice pick scars: This scar looks like a deep hole in the skin and is caused by a cyst infection deep in the skin.

    Boxcar scars: Boxcar scars are round depressions with deep vertical sides that leave a pitted appearance on the skin.

    Rolling scars: These scars develop under the surface between the dermis and subcutaneous tissues. They pull on the epidermis, creating a rolling or wavelike appearance on the surface.

    Hyperpigmentation: Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation looks like a scar, but it’s not. It is caused by the skin producing too much melanin while healing from acne or other inflammation. The resulting dark spot of skin tends to fade on its own after a while.

    Effective home remedies for back acne scars

    It’s important to take care of your skin properly to reduce the chance of scarring. There are some home remedies you can try to reduce and relieve your back acne scars:

    Salicylic acid reduces redness and swelling and minimizes the appearance of many types of acne scars.

    Lactic acid reduces the appearance of scars and smooths out your skin.

    How do you get rid of back acne scars fast?

    Medical procedures for treating back acne scars

    Some medical procedures are available to treat back acne scars. They are great if you have old acne scars that are deep and don’t respond well to home remedies.

    Punch excision works well for ice pick and boxcar scars.

    Subcision is a simple surgery that smooths out rolling scars by cutting the subcutaneous bands pulling the skin.

    Cortisone cream can reduce the size of hypertrophic scars.

    Cryotherapy (freezing) helps reduce the size and stop the growth of keloid scars.

    Laser resurfacing is an option for scarring with deep pits and uneven surfaces as it smooths the skin out.

    Talk to your medical professional to discuss the options that best suit your needs when considering these medical procedures.

    Do back acne scars go away?

    Acne is the most common skin disorder for women and happens to everyone at various times in their lives.

    Treat your acne properly to reduce the chance of scarring. Stay on top of your acne breakouts to feel good in your skin.

    Scarring is always a possibility, but with the proper techniques, you can reduce the chances of scarring and even remove old acne scars. If you notice scarring starting to occur and home remedies aren’t working, talk to a dermatologist or get advice on some medical treatments to remove acne scars.

    Back acne is difficult to reach and can be painful. Scars left behind are frustrating and even embarrassing. Treat your acne properly to reduce the chance of scarring. Stay on top of your acne breakouts to feel good in your skin.

    How long does it take for back acne scars to fade?

    How soon your acne scar will fade depends on the type of scar.

    Some people would pick at their pimples and cause acne scarring, while others leave them alone and still wind up with a scar. If you’re in the second group, it probably doesn’t seem fair, does it?

    Regardless of how you got the acne scar, you no doubt want it gone. Unfortunately, scars don’t disappear quickly, if at all.

    Will your acne scar fade on its own? Can you speed up the healing process? Here are three things you need to know about how long acne scarring can last:

    1. While some scars will fade on their own eventually, others are more stubborn.
    2. Some acne scars are simply dark marks that will fade on their own, while deeper tissue scars may require laser treatments.
    3. Getting your acne under control is key to preventing future acne scars.

    Acne Scar or Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation?

    Before we can answer whether or not your acne scar will go away, it’s important to identify if the mark on your face is truly a scar. Dark brown or red blemishes that won’t disappear may look like a scar, but they may be something called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

    Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is a common pigmentation disorder which is often preceded by other diseases or injuries that affect the skin, such as acne or eczema. It’s a temporary discoloration that occurs when an irregular amount of pigmentation is produced in response to skin inflammation, causing discoloration.

    The good news is that what most people think are acne scars are really just discoloration. PIH can take anywhere from two months to two years to fade, so try to be patient.

    The bad news is that acne scars (and some PIH) can be notoriously difficult to ever get rid of completely. The first thing you should do to prevent acne scaring is to get on an acne treatment system to reduce acne breakouts.

    If your acne scars won’t fade and are taking a toll on your self-esteem, it may be time to see a dermatologist. Although the solution may not be cheap, it could well be worth it to get your confidence back.

    Treatment Options for Post-Inflammatory Pigmentation

    PIH can take up to two years to fade on its without treatment. However, it’s generally more likely to fade than true acne scars because the tissue underneath isn’t damaged.

    Still, it’s not a guarantee that your PIH will disappear. To increase the likelihood that your PIH fades, be sure to stay out of the sun whenever possible and wear a daily moisturizer with SPF. PIH can worsen with UV ray exposure.

    You can also treat PIH through regular exfoliation (2 times per week, max). Using a gentle exfoliating scrub on your skin can inhibit the production of melanin by increasing cell turnover.
