Enlarged pores are more than just unsightly. They actually can trap dirt and oils more easily, leading to inflamed pores and blemishes. Here are the top 3 treatments to shrink enlarged pores to ask your dermatologist about.
This procedure involves making tiny micro-punctures into the dermis using very fine needles. This in turn stimulates the skins healing process by producing more collagen and elastin. The end result is firmer, rejuvenated skin. The recovery time is a few days during which there may be some redness. “Microneedling leads to neovascularization and neocollagenesis,” explains Dr. Miriam Hanson, dermatologist and cosmetic skin expert in Austin, Texas. “It can be effectively used to improve skin texture and firmness, as well as reduce pore size, fade scars and make stretch marks less noticeable.”
2. Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Elos Sublative procedure uses a radiofrequency laser to strip away layers of skin. The laser system delivers high-energy to the skin, that heat collagen and stimulates new skin to grow and replace the damaged skin resulting in a fresher complexion. “The Elos Sublative has a tightening effect,” explains Emily Johnston, certified physician assistant at Sanova Dermatology. “Not only does it tighten pores, but also can be used to treat acne scars, and even soften fine lines and wrinkles on the skin.”
This is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, thereby clearing pores of the accumulation of this debris as well as collected oil and dirt. This can be achieved through chemical peels, such as glycolic and salicylic acid peels, or through regular facials.
