Enlarged Pores

We lose collagen in our skin as we age, making skin much less elastic. Skin pores may also get much larger, which will increase the number of facial imperfections such as sagging skin, blackheads, and oily skin.  This is also associated with a skin condition called rosacea, where you may also have acne and telangietasias (excessive redness or red lines in your skin).

Several treatment options are available.  If the enlarged pores are part of the rosacea spectrum, then, medical treatment may improve the pore size and help to prevent others from forming.  Often, additional treatment is necessary. Microdermabrasion, BBL Photorejuvenation, Chemical Peels, Dermaplaning, MicroLaser Peel, and/ or advanced skincare products can stimulate the collagen and elastin growth  which improves the pore size. The number of treatments needed depends on the condition and age of the skin.
