Our pores have an essential role in skin health. The pores are a channel that allows natural oils to reach the surface and keep the skin healthy and fresh. When pores become enlarged, it affects your overall look. Whether your enlarged pores are due to genetics or overactive oil glands in the skin, they can be treated at Skintegrity MedSpa.
What causes large pores?
Large pores can be caused by the following:
- Genetics: Your heritage can make you more likely to have larger pores.
- Oily skin: If excess oil builds up in your pores, it can stretch them and cause them to appear larger.
- Thickened skin: Aging and sun exposure can cause the skin to thicken. When the skin around the pore builds up, it can appear larger.
- Aging: Collagen and elastin production decreases as we age, this can cause the pores to appear larger, as the skin cannot bounce back as quickly as it did when we were young.
How can I effectively treat enlarged pores?
Chemical Peels: chemical peels are ideal for treating enlarged pores. Peels remove the outer layers of dead skin revealing clearer, more even skin with reduced pore size. The right chemical peel can significantly improve your skin’s texture.
IPL: IPL photofacials can not only rejuvenate your facial skin and remove brown spots, but can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve skin tone while reducing pore size.
