During the primary consultation, our dermatologist and therapists perform a skin analysis that informs them what the best treatments and course of action are for you.
In order to tackle enlarged pores, we use a variety of medical and aesthetic treatments to minimise the appearance of enlarged pores on the face.
Enlarged pores are depressions in the facial skin surface that contain one or more openings to the ducts carrying sweat and oil from their respective eccrine glands and sebaceous glands.
Large pores are the dilated opening of oil glands, concentrated mainly in the T-zone on your face, and a common side effect of oily skin. Sun exposure, acne, and genetics also play a factor. Large pores can worsen as we age due to weakened skin laxity.
Pores are clogged with excess sebum causing enlarged pores mostly in people with oily skin. Enlarged pores are usually seen in acne patients which require medical treatment. However, there are also people who have enlarged pores but no acne problem. Ageing causes reduction in collagen production and with sagging skin, this can cause large pores to become more visible. Aged skin and damage caused by the sun on the skin makes the skin thicker and slows down the cell turnover rate.
Accumulation of dead skin cells in pores, which cannot be pushed off the skin causes enlargement of pores.
To minimise pores, it is necessary to consider the skin’s structure. The predominant problem in young skin with large pores is that the skin is oily, and the pores thus become clogged.
In younger people, black spots that clog pores should be prevented with a daily routine. Salicylic acid creams, gels, and lotions, vitamin A creams and gels, creams and gels that contain fruit acids can be used to prevent clogging of pores.
If pores are clogged despite the use of such products, professional deep skin cleaning should be done on a monthly basis by a trained therapist.
Q: What are some common causes of enlarged pores?
A: Some common causes of enlarged pores include excess oil production, clogged pores, sun damage, aging, genetics, and skin conditions like acne. The main causes are oiliness, dead skin buildup, and loss of elasticity in the skin.
Q: What areas of the face are most prone to enlarged pores?
A: The T-zone area including the forehead, nose, and chin is most prone to enlarged pores since this area tends to be oilier. Pores also enlarge more easily in thicker skin areas.
Q: How can I temporarily minimize the appearance of enlarged pores?
A: Using mattifying primers, clay masks, or blotting sheets can help temporarily reduce oil and make pores less visible. However, these don't treat the underlying cause. Professional treatments are required for longer-lasting pore minimization.
Q: What professional treatments do you offer for enlarged pores?
A: We offer several professional treatments including PRX-T33 peels, Hydrafacial, IPL photorejuvenation, and Venus Viva nanofractional RF. Each treatment works in different ways to clean pores, exfoliate dead skin, resurface skin, and stimulate collagen to tighten pores.
Q: How many professional treatments are needed to see results?
A: Most clients see noticeable improvement in pore appearance after 3-5 professional treatments. However, the number of treatments needed depends on your specific skin concerns. Maintenance treatments are usually needed 2-4 times per year.
Q: When will I see results and how long do they last?
A: You can see some instant effects after the first treatment, but more significant results are visible after a series of treatments. With proper skincare, results can last 6-12 months depending on your skin type and age.
Q: Are there any side effects or downtime after these pore treatments?
A: Most of our pore treatments have no downtime. You may experience temporary redness, dryness or flaking for a couple days. Aggressive peels have the most downtime of up to 1 week.
Q: What can I do at home to maintain my treatment results?
A: Use oil-free products, exfoliate 2-3 times per week, clay masks weekly, and professional cleaning facials monthly. Avoid sun exposure, smoking, and picking at skin. Moisturize daily and use retina or retinol products at night.
