There is no shortage of acne-busting treatments designed to give even the most blemish-prone skin types a clear complexion. But what happens when a client presents with acne below the neck?
Body acne has been given a lot of fun monikers (think bacne and buttne), but for people who experience it, it’s no laughing matter. Considering we’re spending more time than ever in active wear (thanks, lockdown) and Summer is just around the corner (another major culprit of causing body acne), it’s time to be prepared with treatment options.
1. Detoxing Biologique Recherche Body Treatments
After the announcement of the luxurious Biologique Recherche body treatments launching exclusively at Kailo Medispa in Australia, the team have wasted no time making use of the targeted treatments to improve body acne on clients.
Carol, Kailo’s Biologique Recherche Senior Dermal Therapist, shared, “I love using Biologique Recherche body products for acne as they help to prepare the epidermis and treat the skin, rather than stripping it. With the combination of P50 corps and lymphatic drainage movements, the results speak for themselves. The P50 helps to exfoliate the skin with the use of gentle acids but also feeds the skin with vitamins and minerals.
“Our bodies are more sensitive to dehydration and our cell turnover can slow down, in turn our barrier becomes impaired – which can cause the acne. With a combination of in salon treatments and home care products the acne can be treated. Clients love this treatment as it not only works on their concern, they leave feeling super relaxed.”
2. Medki8 Purifying Back Ritual
Combining a number of targeted ingredients and rituals popular in the treatment of acne, the Purifying Back Ritual is equal parts effective and relaxing. It’s best enjoyed as a course of treatments and is set to help clients see a serious improvement in body blemishes.
Sonia Swift, Brand and Marketing Manager for Medik8 explains, “The Medik8 Purifying Back Ritual was developed as a specialised treatment to treat an area that is not commonly requested, but remains an area of concern for many.
“This comprehensive back treatment uses a combination of deep and powerful exfoliation with natural clays that work in harmony to reveal smoother, clearer skin and prevent future breakouts. The treatment involves targeted deep tissue massage techniques that deliver an intense blend of lavender and petitgrain essential oils to dissolve muscle tension and ease the mind.”
3. DMK Body Enzyme Therapy
DMK’s signature Enzyme Therapy treatment is specifically designed to encourage the body’s skin to perform at its best. It’s formulated for use in treating dry skin, ingrown hairs, acne, stretch marks, scarring, hyperpigmentation and even fluid retention and poor circulation.
Kailo Medispa’s DMK Senior Dermal Therapist, Melisa, has seen great results in her clients and loves the versatility the treatment provides.
“DMK allows us skin therapists to treat the condition at a deeper level through the circulatory and lymphatic systems, a regular cosmetic body treatment just can’t compare. Surface exfoliation and internal stimulation gives long term benefits to keep the acne away. I love having lots of different options to treat the acne, no appointment is exactly the same!
“The results definitely speak for themselves, clients constantly comment on how fast they see improvements in their skin, you almost wouldn’t believe it if you didn’t see it! I see them develop a lot of confidence in me as a therapist, not to mention the confidence in themselves,” shares Melisa.
4. mesoestetic acnelan
acnelan by mesoestetic is an innovative professional topical treatment of acne-prone and seborrheic skins that can be used both on the face and other areas of the body including the back. It offers a cross-cutting approach to address the numerous factors that trigger acne, combining an intensive clinical treatment for professional use with a range of home care solutions.
According to Samantha Appel, Dermal Therapist and Founder of The Skin Bar, acnelan can deliver some amazing results. “I have clients who often don’t want to go down the path of medication and are looking for an alternate approach. Over the course of 3 months, acnelan professional treatments combined with the home care regime have worked brilliantly at helping control and reduce my clients’ acne.
“I love that this treatment is a well-researched and proven treatment for acne. We are not using any damaging lasers on the skin to destroy bacteria, which is what I am all about. We are using proven skincare products only (including the professional treatment) to help treat active acne. What I also really love (as do the clients) is that it is possible to actually see results after only one treatment!“
