Large Pores

Treatments / Procedures

Large pores are common in people with oily skin. The natural aging process also causes an increase in pore size. Pores that are stretched will never permanently shrink, however there are medical treatments that work to diminish pore size.

Large pores in oily skin are caused by over treating or drying of the skin, which causes an excess of dead cells in pores, causing the pores to stretch and enlarge. Aging of the skin has the same stretching effect on the pores, as they enlarge due to excess sun exposure and loss of skin elasticity.


Chemical Peels

A chemical peel involves applying chemical solution to the face. This will exfoliate and smooth the skin when it is peeled off, causing the pores to tighten. The outer layer of skin is removed when the chemical layer is peeled. The treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes. To achieve the best results the skin will need to be both prepared appropriately and protected after the procedure to achieve the best results. All aspects will be discussed during your consultation.

Microdermabrasion treatment for large pores involves using a machine on the skin that pushes out a stream of crystals. This procedure will clean and shrink pores and clear out dead skin cells. The skin shows a noticeable change in texture and tone after one treatment. Microdermabrasion is a low risk treatment that has no downtime for the patient. A treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes with side effects being dry flaking skin for several days after.
