How To Treat Butt Acne: Booty Facials Can Clear Pimples on the Butt
Butt acne, even though it remains hidden from mostly everyone in your life, is still an embarrassing and concerning skin issue. So you, like many of my clients, might be wondering if the latest beauty treatment called “booty facials” can help treat pimples on the butt.
Yes! A booty facial, butt facial, fanny facial…whatever you want to give it, can help treat butt acne. There’s better news. Booty facials with Pure Skin Pro can also help with pigmentation or acne scars on your bum.
Before we explore what a booty facial includes, we should first get to the bottom of the issue (pun intended; wink).
Why Do I Have Butt Acne?
Clogged hair follicles can become infected with bacteria resulting in a skin condition called folliculitis. There are constantly bacteria on your skin. With proper, diligent care, it usually doesn’t become an issue. However, our bums are areas where bacteria have a better chance for growth and it’s an area sometimes forgotten in our daily skincare routines.
Tight clothing, sweat, chafing, and insufficient exfoliation and cleansing will exacerbate butt acne, which can cause unsightly bumps and pigmentation.
A skin condition called keratosis pilaris may appear as butt acne, but it’s just a buildup of protein. It can cause raised bumps, though, which seem like constant goosebumps or tiny pimples, which leave your skin feeling rough.
What Is a Butt Facial?
A Booty Facial, or butt facial, from Pure Skin Pro involves cleansing, exfoliation, extractions (if needed), treatment serums, and a mask.
It might sound contraindicative to exfoliate the skin with acne, but in most cases, exfoliating can help minimize acne when performed properly as part of an acne treatment program. (Read How Often Should You Exfoliate Acne-Prone Skin?) In fact, butt facials or quite similar to “regular” facials.
I use helpful topical antibiotics and cleansers during Booty Facial treatments to help prevent future outbreaks and unsightly pigmentation.
Can You Get Rid of Acne Scars on Your Butt?
Washing your buttocks at least twice a day can help prevent butt acne. For those who exercise regularly, it’s crucial to wash this area as soon as possible following a workout. Sweat from your daily yoga routine or weightlifting regimen provides the perfect environment for harmful bacteria.
It is possible to reduce acne scars and dark pigmentation on your buttocks. I recommend my Booty Facial, which treats skin issues like acne, dryness, and pigmentation.
If more extensive treatment is needed, it’s best to schedule an acne treatment consultation so that we can begin a dedicated program that goes beyond clarifying treatments and may entail LED light therapy to reduces scarring and hyperpigmentation while reducing inflammation.
When Should I See a Specialist About Butt Pimples?
If pimples on your butt are worsening, painful, or harming your self-esteem, you should consult a trained esthetician. Acne management is my specialty. Skin is skin; there’s no need to be embarrassed about tackling pimples on your body.
