Enlarged pores can negatively impact the appearance of your face. They can give your face an uneven and unattractive appearance. Usually, people have large pores because they have overactive oil glands. This is why people who have very oily skin or who have a lot of acne usually have visible pores. When your pores become full of oil, they get clogged up, and the walls of your pores start to stretch.
As you get older and as your skin begins to lose some of its ability to bounce back, you may develop enlarged pores. Other things such as overexposure to the sun and skin conditions that throw your skin out of balance can affect the appearance of your pores. Some people have bad pores because they are using skin care products incorrectly. Others have enlarged pores because of medication they are using. Some people are dealing with certain health issues that lead to enlarged pores.
For the most part, treating enlarged pores has to do with decreasing the amount of oil that your skin is producing. There are a number of topical treatments that can be used to minimize oil production. However, these treatments can only go so far. BOTOX® has been used for many years to help individuals with dynamic wrinkles; however, it cannot really do anything to treat enlarged pores.
Fortunately, our IPL treatments can be used to treat enlarged pores, making your skin look younger and healthier. The treatment makes your skin look smoother, and the appearance of your pores is minimized.
Avoid trying to do extractions of your pores on your own. If you do not know what you’re doing, you can actually make the condition of your skin a lot worse.
