How To Get Rid Of Butt Acne Fast?
Acne is the most common skin condition among us all! Acne breakouts can be agonizing, difficult to manage, and can seriously impact the quality of your life. Whether it’s a tiny pimple or a painful cyst, acne can cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance. Treating an acne lesion or breakout can be a frustrating process, and waiting too long to tackle a zit on the booty can result in permanent scarring. While problems with acne often start in our adolescence, acne can be persistent throughout adulthood. Acne can affect other areas of the body other than the buttocks – the face, the arms, chest, neck and back. There are different acne treatments designed for each area. Here we will focus on butt acne treatments and how to get rid of butt acne fast.
Butt acne is one of the most annoying and embarrassing areas to have pimples. Butt acne breakouts are a common issue that many patients face, and the condition can be exacerbated by a number of factors. These factors include wearing occlusive or tight clothing, excessive heat, hormonal changes, improper exfoliation, sweating, waxing, or even shaving. Though certain bumps on the buttocks may clear up on their own with time, there are some butt acne breakouts that are caused by bacterial or fungal infections which may need medical treatment in order to resolve. Treating an acne breakout early on is important in order to prevent an infection from spreading and to prevent acne scars from developing. Acne scars can often be more difficult to treat than the acne breakouts themselves. When you are experiencing an acne breakout, whether it is on your face, chest, back, or buttocks, Urban Body Laser is here to help with our butt acne treatments.
What Causes Butt Acne?
Why Am I Breaking Out In Pimples On My Butt?
Most people have experienced an acne breakout at some point in their life, and there is no shame in looking for a solution to your butt acne. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions worldwide. Acne occurs when the sebaceous follicles in the skin become clogged with sebum, dirt, debris, and dead skin cells. The debris trapped within the pore causes inflammation of the skin, leading to the development of pimples, pustules, nodules, whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts. Acne can occur anywhere on the body where there are sebaceous follicles. Areas with a higher concentration of sebaceous glands include the buttocks, face, neck, shoulders, upper arms, back, and chest.
When it comes to butt breakouts, however, there are other factors that might contribute to acne formation. There generally isn’t as much oil production happening on the buttocks as other areas of the body, meaning that most of the time those pimples popping up on the butt may be related to a different form of skin irritation than traditional acne. Acne on the buttocks is typically not considered to be true acne. It’s common for acne breakouts on the buttocks to be caused by a particular type of irritation called folliculitis.
Folliculitis occurs when there is irritation of the hair follicles of the skin, creating red, irritated bumps that closely resemble acne lesions. Occasionally, these bumps can be a symptom of an allergic reaction on the skin called contact dermatitis. Folliculitis, however, is most commonly onset by repeated friction in an area. This can happen as a result of wearing tight clothing (which is increasingly popular and may be why more people are experiencing butt acne breakouts), a sedentary lifestyle, failing to shower after exercising, improper shaving or waxing techniques, and even sitting in a hot tub. No matter the cause of your butt acne or folliculitis, With over 18 years of experience developing personalized treatment plans for our guests that incorporate the best skincare products and most innovative acne treatments available, we have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with clear, smooth, beautiful skin, wherever your breakout may be.

What causes folliculitis?
When it comes to butt acne, folliculitis is the most common type. However, it is not true acne, but rather the result of inflammation around hair follicles. Typically, folliculitis occurs when a hair follicle is infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, also known as staph bacteria. Folliculitis may also be caused by other forms of bacteria, fungi, or yeast, as well as simple irritation or clogging of the hair follicles. This irritation of the hair follicles is often caused by friction between tight clothing and skin which can aggravate the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin). Folliculitis looks nearly the same clinically as traditional acne, although the hair follicle is at the root of the irritation, not the oil gland.
What causes pimples?
Pimples occur when the sebaceous glands or oil glands become clogged and infected. This leads to swollen, red lesions filled with pus, known commonly as zits, pimples, and acne. Pimples are most common during puberty as a result of hormonal fluctuations. These hormonal fluctuations often cause your sebaceous glands to become active and produce excess amounts of sebum that are more likely to clog hair follicles. Once your hair follicles are clogged, pimples are likely to occur. Other factors that may contribute to pimples include genetics, stress, high humidity, and using oily, greasy, or irritating skin care products. This is where our butt acne treatments can help.
How To Get Rid Of Butt Acne Scars
If you are suffering from acne scarring on the buttocks, we use the most cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions to get rid of butt acne scars and diminishing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, (PIH), or dark spots. Whether it be resurfacing, laser treatment or microneedling, we have the most cutting edge cosmetic butt acne treatments to improve the appearance of your skin.
How does exfoliating help treat folliculitis?
Folliculitis is a common skin condition in which the hair follicles become inflamed. Folliculitis can be caused by a range of factors including blockage or occlusion of the follicle, overuse of oily products that block your pores, bacterial or yeast infections, waxing, shaving, and wearing tight clothes, among other reasons. A simple way to help treat folliculitis is through exfoliation. Exfoliation can be particularly helpful in treating folliculitis because it will prevent the build-up of oil while helping remove dead cells from the hair follicle. Both mechanical and chemical exfoliation can aid in the treatment of folliculitis.
Mechanical exfoliation can take the form of a body, or even using an exfoliating glove or cloth. Many body scrubs have ingredients like sea salt which act as an abrasive to remove the dead skin cells. Loofahs or exfoliation cloths. Exfoliation can also gently slough away old skin. The scrubbing motion will increase blood flow to the area and can help clear out debris from clogged hair follicles. However, it is important to be extremely gentle when mechanically exfoliating an area. If you scrub too harshly, you can cause micro-tears on the skin which can worsen folliculitis.
Chemical exfoliation is another great option for exfoliating the dead skin cells and treating folliculitis. A product which contains alpha or beta-hydroxy acids can help cleanse the skin and unclog pores. Other ingredients useful in exfoliation include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and benzoyl peroxide. Glycolic acid will remove dead skin skills while evening out skin tone and reducing hyperpigmentation. Salicylic acid will get rid of excess sebum and help treat acne and benzoyl peroxide can help kill pathogenic bacteria while removing dead skin cells. Exfoliation is a key part of our butt acne treatments.
What is Keratosis Pilaris?
If you’re observing that there are small red bumps on the buttocks that are neither itchy or painful, you may be experiencing a skin condition called keratosis pilaris (KP). Keratin is a component of the skin that helps provide it with protection. Keratosis Pilaris is a generally harmless skin condition that occurs when the body’s natural keratin production interferes with the follicular opening. The underlying cause of keratosis pilaris is currently unknown, although it does appear to be genetic, typically running in families. If you do have keratosis pilaris on the buttocks, you’ll likely see it elsewhere on the body, too. The arms and legs are typically the most common areas to have KP.
For treating the look and feel of bumpy skin associated with keratosis pilaris, we typically recommend an exfoliating body wash containing glycolic acid with a loofah in order to help loosen the keratin itself. We also recommend treating KP by gently exfoliating with a loofah or rough washcloth. Keratosis Pilaris can also be treated effectively with lactic acid, salicylic acid, urea, alpha hydroxy acids, or retinoids. Some recalcitrant Keratosis Pilaris have even been treated with laser therapy and microdermabrasion. Keratosis Pilaris is a chronic skin condition, but for many patients, they may outgrow this common skin condition. We will apply the best butt acne treatments for your specific situation.
Best Butt Acne Treatment
Since the bumps on one’s buttock are not traditional acne lesions, treating the problem with traditional acne treatments may not be as effective. However, there are some steps that you can add to your wellness and skincare routine to help treat or prevent the occurrence of “buttne.” The most important thing to prevent buttne is to keep the irritated skin clean. Always showering immediately after exercise and using antibacterial soap to eliminate bacteria, sweat, and debris is an important part of preventing buttne, folliculitis.
In addition, proper exfoliation is an important part of maintaining healthy skin. The use of gentle exfoliating skincare products helps to treat all sorts of bumps on the behind, working to remove dead skin cells from the irritated follicles of the skin. However, it is important to not exfoliate too harshly or too often in order to prevent aggravating the irritated follicles of the skin. Our butt acne treatments provide a thorough exfoliation for better results.
Choosing the best skincare for butt acne
When it comes to treating butt acne, not all skincare products are created equal. There are certain key active ingredients to look for when selecting products that will help you reduce the appearance of your butt acne quickly and effectively. When choosing cleansers, lotions, and exfoliating products, it is very important to select the products that contain the right ingredients to treat the bumps. In general, the following guide will help you choose the best butt acne treatment.
Acne cleansers for butt acne breakouts
When looking for cleansers to treat butt acne, choosing washes and cleansers that are PH Balanced can be very effective. One of the main bacteria that causes acne does not like skin that is properly Ph balanced. One step in reducing buttne is to create a bacteria free environment.
Exfoliating products to treat folliculitis
Gentle exfoliating agents, such as salicylic acid, can be effective for treating both traditional acne lesions and folliculitis. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that easily penetrates the skin’s pores to break down any oil and remove dead skin cells. This is a common active ingredient in many skincare products including cleansers, serums, and exfoliating scrubs.
Should I use a moisturizer or lotion for my butt acne?
Rich, nourishing moisturizers, while excellent for providing hydration to the skin, can sometimes cause or exacerbate irritation associated with folliculitis and butt acne. Also, heavy moisturizing creams can further clog the pores and worsen your butt breakout. However, using certain targeted treatment lotions can help! Our Technicians access the area and will provide a moisturizer best suited for your skin and its condition.
How to treat acne on the buttocks naturally
Many patients choose to supplement their medical treatments with a number of home remedies, including natural treatment options, that can help to further reduce the appearance of any pimples on the buttocks. Though a medical treatment approach tends to reduce the appearance of butt acne more quickly, there are several natural treatment methods that some patients like to use, too:
- Tea tree oil has natural antimicrobial properties that make it effective against acne breakouts
- Turmeric paste can help fight against bacteria that leads to the formation of body acne
- An apple cider vinegar bath contains acetic acid which may combat folliculitis-causing bacteria
- Choosing a fragrance-free, lightweight body lotion as opposed to one with fragrance or a thick cream
- Applying a warm compress to the skin in order to open up and clear out follicles of the skin can help loosen and clear out any butt acne. To make a warm compress, place a washcloth under warm water and wring out the excess water. You can add various drying agents to the water to help treat the butt acne
- A saltwater sitz bath can help to soothe and sterilize the irritated area, as well as help to treat minor infections
Bothersome “buttne”: How to best prevent butt acne breakouts
Believe it or not, it is very possible for one’s fashion choices to be the primary culprit of their butt acne. While leggings are often the perfect pair of comfortable pants for working out or running errands, the tight-fitting fabric can cause friction against the skin, leading to irritation. When sweat and friction are combined, the environment is right for the development of skin conditions like folliculitis and butt acne.
In order to best prevent acne and folliculitis from forming on the buttocks, opt for clothing that is loose-fitting and breathable as opposed to tight-fitting clothing. Clothes made from cotton are generally more breathable than other fabrics and are a good choice for those looking to prevent buttne. Wash clothes, towels, and sheets regularly, as bacteria can be transferred to your skin as well.
Additionally, be sure to shower regularly, especially after a workout session! Allowing sweat, dirt, and bacteria to stay on your skin after exercising is a recipe for developing buttne and folliculitis. If you suffer from frequent butt acne breakouts or are looking to prevent them altogether, then always promptly rinse off after sweating. Throw your workout clothes in the laundry after you exercise, too!
Another helpful way to prevent the formation of butt acne and folliculitis is by routinely using a gentle exfoliating lotion or body wash. Skincare products containing ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids can help prevent and combat any flare ups of acne on the buttocks. Using a loofah in the shower can also help to remove the buildup of dead skin cells and debris that may be clogging the pores and contributing to butt acne.
How to get rid of dark spots from acne on your buttocks
Butt acne can be a pain, and it can be even more frustrating when butt pimples leave behind dark spots. These little dark marks are commonly referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and can occur after an outbreak of acne, folliculitis, or other inflammatory injury or skin irritation. Sometimes, the appearance of dark spots on the skin may resolve on their own, though this may take a considerable amount of time. Other dark marks may require professional treatment in order to completely disappear. In any case, meeting with one of our Technicians is the best way to effectively and swiftly minimize the appearance of dark marks on the buttocks left from acne.
Why are there dark marks where there used to be acne in the first place? Dark spots typically develop as a result of inflammation and skin irritation from the acne lesions which trigger overproduction of melanin in a cluster of surrounding cells. The underlying reason for the production of excess melanin following inflammation is still unknown. However, once there are dark spots on the skin where acne lesions once were, UV rays from the sun can exacerbate their appearance and make them more difficult to remove. Dark acne spots may also be caused or worsened by attempting to pop a pimple. This is why it is so important to refrain from picking any acne! Instead of trying to perform your own extractions at home, schedule a consultation with us here at Urban Body Laser and we will help you develop a personalized treatment plan to eliminate your buttne and diminish the appearance of any acne scars, providing you with clear, smooth, beautiful skin.
