Treating Large Pores at Dermatology Consultants
Enlarged pores can be troublesome for a number of reasons, not the least of which is they can easily become unsightly blackheads. Large pores frequently clog with debris and oil, which turns black when it hits the air. Sometimes blackheads can’t be easily treated at home and require removal by an esthetician or dermatologist.
Even when blackheads are not present visible pores give the skin an uneven appearance. The size of our pores is mostly genetic, but oily skin can also make pores look larger by clogging normal pores and making them swell to a more visible size. Aging is also another cause of enlarged pores, as skin loses its elasticity and sags, stretching open our pores.
An important component of treating enlarged pores is your at-home skin care regimen, which should include proper cleansing and toning as instructed by one of our estheticians or dermatologists. But we also offer safe and effective treatments for reducing the appearance of large pores, including:
Lasers like CO2RE are very effective at resurfacing the skin and correcting a number of problems that contribute to large pores. CO2RE reaches both superficial and deep layers of the skin, firming aging skin that may be causing pores to show. Learn more about laser treatments at Dermatology Consultants.
Silkpeel is an innovative three-in-one treatment provided by our skilled estheticians. The Silkpeel process first deeply exfoliates skin, which loosens oils and debris that fill large pores and resurfaces the skin. Then it vacuums away those oils and debris, as well as dead skin, leaving skin refreshed and ripe for the third stage of the treatment, which infuses the freshly-cleaned skin with nourishing serums. These serums can help firm skin to minimize the appearance of large pores. Learn more about Silkpeel.
