Enlarged Pores

Pores are the common exit of hair and oil glands, so they are the source of oil. Excessive oil secretion will dilate the pores. The T-shaped part of the face and both sides of the cheeks are the concentration of oil glands, so they are also the hardest hit areas for large pores. When the oil encounters dust and oxidation, it will block the pore exit and form black spots, that is, blackheads.

Enlarged pores have both congenital and acquired factors. Some people are born with a strong oil secretion. When a large amount of oil accumulates in the pores for a long time, the pores will become enlarged. In addition to congenital factors, acquired factors are also very important. As we age, the loss of collagen and elastin accelerates, and pores lose their support and become slack. In addition, when the pores are often squeezed (such as needle cleaning, etc.), it is easy to cause skin inflammation, leaving dents and causing enlarged pores.

LM Skincentre has different treatments for large pores. The doctor will make recommendations according to the client’s skin problem. If there is too much oil secretion, you can use vitamin A acid or chemical peel treatment to reduce oil secretion, reduce blockage, and gradually shrink pores. Because the pores extend from the superficial skin to the dermis, if you want to carry out medical aesthetic treatment, you must choose a deep treatment plan, so that the effect will be obvious. Our center offers different treatments including Fractional CO2 Laser, Picosure Picosecond Laser, Fraxel® Laser, Clear + Brilliant® Laser, and Dermapen™ Microneedling Treatment which stimulates collagen and effectively shrinks pores.
