Enlarged pores are a common cosmetic problem and can cause the skin to look rough and dull. Pores are usually most obvious on the nose, forehead and chin. While enlarged pores are not a medical concern, they can damage our self-esteem and self-confidence and lead us to spend money on often-ineffective products.
We lose collagen in our skin as we age, making skin much less elastic. Skin pores may also get much larger, which will increase the number of facial imperfections such as sagging skin, blackheads, and oily skin.
At Bella Luz, we treat pore enlargements with Microdermabrasion, Photorejuvenation, Chemical Peels, and advanced skincare products.
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels will both help reduce the size of enlarged pores. Microdermabrasion uses microcrystal particles to remove excess oil and dead skin that accumulates in pores.
Microdermabrasion stimulates tightening of collagen, which also helps improve the appearance of enlarged pores.
Chemical peels use medical-grade products such as salicylic or glycolic acid to remove dead skin cells and remove sebum and oils from the pores.
Other procedures, which help reduce the size of enlarged pores, are the laser and the e-matrix. The laser is a gentle, no downtime treatment that stimulates the skin to produce collagen. Again, this effectively tightens the pores, as well as diminishing fine lines and improving texture.
The e-matrix uses a combination of bipolar radiofrequency and infrared energy to heat the dermal layer of the skin. This heat helps minimize enlarged pores by tightening the skin and promoting new collagen growth.
All these treatments can stimulate the growth of collagen and decrease the pore size. The number of treatments needed depends on the condition and age of the skin.
Enlarged pores do not have to be a fact of your life! Bella Luz has been helping our clients improve their appearance since 2006.
