Enlarged Pores

Enlarged Pores

Enlarged pores occur most often because of genetics and age. Those who have naturally thick and oily skin tend to have larger pores. As we age, sun damage can cause the pores to dilate over time.

While not harmful, enlarged pores can be bothersome and frustrating to deal with. We offer several options to help minimize enlarged pores ranging from microneedling to chemical peels.

Treatment Options

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a facial treatment offered for enlarged pores. As the microneedling pen stamps over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures in the skin, the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process. You encourage your skin to continue healing through this micro-needling process.
