Acne patients who have been suffering from back acne, often appreciate the therapeutic effects of having a back facial to clear, calm, and soothe the skin. Therefore, how do we choose a back facial that works for us? Read on for practical tips on choosing the right back acne facial as part of your back acne treatment in Singapore.
Tip #1: Consult a trained skincare professional
Seek out a trained skincare professional who can assess the condition of the skin on your back in order to recommend the right back facial for you. It’s always best to ask friends and family for referrals or recommendations. Ensure that the doctors you consult are professionally qualified and trained. Taking a look at the Register of Medical Practitioners may be helpful.
Tip #2: Consult a trained skincare professional
If you are suffering from back acne and outbreaks, do consult an acne doctor to assess the severity. The doctor can assess your suitability for a back facial by checking for co-existing scars and blemishes / hyperpigmentation. Some types of back facial may not suit you if you have severe acne with inflammations or cystic acne. Cystic acne is a severe form of acne where you can observe large, red and sore acne lesions. Lastly, before doing a back facial, you may first need medication to treat and heal the active acne or cystic acne.
Tip #3: Medical back facials may be suitable for removing blemishes
This tip applies to people with active acne that has subsided, leaving only dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Some medical back facials may remove blemishes more efficiently than a regular salon back facial. A regular back facial consists of your typical deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extractions. On the contrary, a medical grade back facial treatment is highly customizable to your skin. It consists of a combination of medical grade products and technology. Some medical grade back facial treatments include: back laser, hydrodermabrasion, chemical peels etc.
Choosing the correct back facial can alleviate the stress on your skin, and clear acne scars and blemishes. If you would like further guidance on your back acne, consult our experienced and personable doctors at Eeva Medical Aesthetic Clinic for a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis.
