INTRODUCTION

What causes enlarged pores & blackheads?

Pores are small, visible openings in our skin that primarily serve to release bodily fluids like oils and sweat.

Enlarged pores is a very common condition. Pore size can vary in accordance to multiple factors. Usually, people with acne and oily skin tend to have larger pores.

Other factors that might contribute to having enlarged pores:

  • Ageing
  • Genetics
  • Loss of elastin and collagen
  • Exposure to UV rays
  • Individuals with excessive and coarse hair follicles

As we grow older, our skin loses elastin and collagen and becomes weaker, making enlarged pores much more visible.

EVIDENCE-BASED METHODS

Treatments for Enlarged Pores & Blackheads

Hydropeel is a multi-step medical-grade facial treatment to remove blackheads and reduce facial oiliness and enlarged pores.

Medical peels and surface resurfacing lasers are extremely useful for reducing the congestion and blackheads. They come with varying levels of downtime, from practically no peeling to a moderate amount that can last for days.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing can reduce pore size by focusing RF energy deep into the dermis and reactivate the skin’s natural collagen-producing abilities. The depth at which the RF energy is targeted allows the epidermis to go unharmed, removing the need for cooling and avoiding other potential side effects.

Non-ablative or needling RF options can control and even remove the oil glands beneath skin, removing the root cause of the problem. In this way, pores can be removed permanently. These procedures usually give a few days of downtime in terms of mild redness and swelling.

Injections of skinboosters such as Rejuran in combination with neuro-toxins can effectively reduce both facial oiliness and pore size.
