Open or enlarged pores can be an annoying problem for both men and woman of all age. Each pore of the skin has both a hair follicle and a sebaceous gland (oil gland). Pores are an important part of the skins health and generally they are not problematic. Some skin types and skin conditions can lead to enlarged pores that begin to look more visible and cosmetically displeasing.
Large pores can be prominent on the cheeks, nose and chin areas, appearing like needle holes or craters in the face.
The issue with enlarged pores is that they are more susceptible to dirt and grime build-up. Congested pores lead to a whole manner of skin complains, like spots, blemishes and even infection.
The Skinssence offers multiple treatments for all skin conditions. Each patient can be individually assessed through our skin analysis system and a bespoke treatment plan instituted to address individual concerns.
A good cleansing routine
One of the easiest ways to prevent the occurrence of enlarged pores is to adopt a good daily cleansing routine, to prevent the buildup of oil and dead skin cells on your skin’s surface.
Skinssence offer a range of medical solution for your enlarged pores that can help in keeping your skin cleansed, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Our carbon laser peel helps to minimise and unclog pores, while tackling acne and oily skin concerns.
Medical Grade Peels can safely resurface the skin and promote the growth of new skin. This effectively clears your skin’s surface of dead skin cells, revealing the fresher, softer skin underneath, as well as reducing the likelihood of clogged and enlarged pores.
Excessively heavy foundations and concealers, sun damage, general ageing, bacterial growth, pollutants in the atmosphere which can clog the pores and lead to blackheads, pimple popping and over-picking the skin (which can often lead to inflammation and later, scarring).
You are also an acne sufferer, you frequently or exclusively use products which are comedogenic (pore-clogging) such as various oils like avocado and coconut; or you are genetically predisposed (you have parents/family members who also have large pores.)
Oily or greasy moisturisers, picking at the face, dirty pillowcases and makeup brushes, smoking – a process proven to accelerate ageing and break collagen fibres known for keeping the pores elastic, and most importantly: using conflicting chemicals on the face which will upset the skin’s delicate oil balance.
