Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. While it is primarily present on the face, it is not the only site. Acne can affect any part of the body that has oil-secreting glands or hair follicles, including the back, chest, and shoulders. Though these regions may be easier to conceal, body acne can still have an adverse effect on an individual’s social life, self-esteem, and body image.
Luckily, there are ways to support clients who may be experiencing body acne, starting in the treatment room with body facials and peels. With advanced professional treatments, peels and enzymes, and the right homecare regimen, professionals can help clients achieve healthy, smooth skin, and prevent or reduce the appearance of acne scaring. Think beyond only treating the face and explore how to help clients achieve whole body radiance and skin health.
