Enlarged Pores


DermaTx - enlarged pores

Enlarged pores are a common concern for many women of all ages and skin types, especially for those with oily and combination skin. The good news is that there are ways to minimise their appearance and smooth out your complexion.

Large pores appear mainly around the nose because the area has more oil glands than the other areas the oil and debris on the skin increases the pore size. Also as we age our pores enlarge, natural growth of the underlying oil glands occurs, along with diminishment of collagen, and consequently the ducts compress allowing the oil glands to rise to the surface of the skin.

Sun damage may also cause enlarged pores. The sun’s harmful rays cause the skin to thicken and the skin cells may collect around the pores which makes pores appear larger. Also as we know the sun damages the collagen and elastin in the skin and as a result the skin loses its elasticity and the pores enlarge because there is no collagen to keep them tight and small. Once the collagen and elastin in your skin is damaged the pores will begin to enlarge.

Improper skincare is another major contributor to enlarged pores. If you don’t remove your makeup in the evening and don’t cleanse and exfoliate your face skin regularly, you are more likely to have enlarged pores.

Microdermbrasion is an effective treatment to help minimize pores. It eliminates blackheads and stimulates the production of collagen, both of which will result in smaller, tighter pores.
