The summer months are a time to spend more time outdoors and slip into that bathing suit for fun in the sun. However, if you are suffering from acne on your back, known as bacne, your desire to go shirtless or wear that bikini top may be shattered. Here at Stanislaw Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we offer solutions for your bacne so you can focus on having fun, not your bacne.

What Causes Bacne?

Our skin has hundred of sebaceous glands which secrete sebum, an oily substance. When you mix this sebum with a build up of dead skin cells and bacteria, you can experience acne. This can occur on any area of the body, including the back. This can cause self-consciousness and embarrassment for many individuals.

There are many types of acne that can occur on the back. These include whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. A visit with one of our skin experts at our office can help to determine which treatment plan is needed to eliminate your bacne.

This treatment entails a chemical solution to be applied to the top layer of the skin, which with causes dead and dull skin cells to peel away. Light to medium chemical peels are great for treating acne and acne scars.
