Large pores result in unsightly problems such as blackheads, whiteheads and other skin bumps. The aim of a pore reduction treatment is to lessen the area of the pore so the bump does not appear or is shrunk back quickly to look like normal skin. Pores help keep your skin healthy, hydrated and soft. However, large pores can be unattractive.
Enlarged pores are an unfortunate result of hereditary and environmental factors affecting the skin, principally of the T-zone of the forehead and face. The T-zone is the area between the eyebrows and central forehead, bounded by the cheeks, nose and chin. It is this area of the face that is most commonly affected by enlarged pores. Pores are exit sites for underlying glandular structures, such as sweat glands and sebaceous hair glands. Enlarged pores can be the result of genetics, that is, hereditary predisposition, to oily, sebaceous and porous skin or it can be as a result of inflammatory conditions, such as rosacea, erythema and acne.
Pores may take on a larger appearance when they are clogged with dirt or oil. They can become larger due to the increase of dead skin cells that gather at the base of the pore. Pores also get larger if you squeeze blackheads or pimples (which also damage your skin). The most effective means of minimizing pores naturally is to keep them clear. This includes regular cleansing, exfoliating and care.
Laser pore tightening is quick, painless, highly effective procedure that works by penetrating deep into the skin’s dermal layer to stimulate new collagen formation. The new collagen formation plumps up your skin, which will tighten skin and reduce pore size. Lasers and intense-pulsed light systems can be used to pass across the area of enlarged pores, reducing their size by minimizing both the inflammatory conditions that may give rise to the pores and enhancing the collagen content of the skin around the pores. The combination of IR laser, Cold laser and LHE in the stimulation treatments can result in markedly enhanced thickness of the dermis, collagen content and elastin, which will make a change around the actual appearance of the macropore, making it much smaller, less apparent and, on occasion, nearly invisible. In addition, the combination therapy of laser, lights and Cold laser devices will also attack the actual sebaceous and sweat glands themselves, reducing their number and activity, minimizing any recurrence of the pore or the formation of new pores. At COL Clinic you will receive the most advanced and comprehensive array of combination treatments leading to the best possible improvement in your enlarged pores.
