Enlarged Pores

Our skin is made up of millions of tiny skin pores. Their function is to release perspiration and oil (sebum) to cool the body. Excessive or increased sweat or oil can overstretch the elasticity of the pore, resulting in the appearance of enlarged pores.

What causes enlarged pores?

Other factors that increase the appearance of enlarged pores include

•  Genetics
•  Blackheads and Whiteheads
•  Acne
•  Extractions or squeezing
•  Seborrhoea (excessive oil flow)

Treatment options

A tailored treatment plan can help reduce the size of your pores. Usually, it’s a combination of Peels and Micro-Needling, but we also offer Microdermabrasion and IPL to treat affected areas.

Chemical Peels are an excellent option to assist in the removal of dead and dry skin cells, which reduces the congestion that leads to enlarged pores.

Micro-Needling is an effective method for reducing enlarged pores. The tiny needles kick-start the body's natural healing process, producing and distributing new collagen, plumping up the enlarged pores and making them smaller.

Microdermabrasion is an excellent option to assist in the removal of dead and dry skin cells, which reduces the congestion that leads to enlarged pores. It is especially effective for blackheads.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation promotes rapid skin repair by promoting cellular renewal, which assists in the reduction of overstretched and enlarged pores.
