What Causes Large Pores?
Pore size is mostly genetic. As we age, our skin loses some of its collagen scaffolding, and the loosening effect can make pores appear larger. Pores also grow with age, magnified by lost elasticity and UV ray damage. Dead skin cells can accumulate within large pores, clogging them, leading to blackheads.
Many of the factors leading to large pores are not under your control. At Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, we can help you to regain a smooth, firm complexion free from imperfections. Your solution may include:
The HydraFacial is a multi-step process that includes a mild acid peel and vacuum suction to help combat enlarged pores, unclogging the skin. The HydraFacial process works to unearth and destroy comedones, which are made from built-up dead skin cells, dirt, debris, and sebum within the pores.
During this treatment, microneedling gently opens up the pores, which then receive potent radiofrequency energy. The RF energy warms the skin’s deep layers, boosting collagen production to shrink pore size and provide you with a smoother, more attractive complexion.
The Halo laser employs both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to rejuvenate the skin and jumpstart collagen and elastin renewal. For those with enlarged pores, treatment with the Halo laser can be a game-changer. Results can be seen within about one week after your session.
Microneedling is a safe, effective option for minimizing enlarged pores. By creating tiny micro-wounds in the skin, microneedling triggers the body’s collagen and elastin production response. With the addition of new collagen, the skin grows firmer, smoother, and tighter.
After your treatment, medical-grade skincare products can help maintain your results, preventing enlarged pores from forming in the future. We can create a personalized skincare regimen tailored to your unique lifestyle, complexion, and comfort levels.
BBL, our best-in-class Intense Pulsed Light device, helps to regenerate collagen, softening the skin and tightening enlarged pores from the inside out. With no downtime, BBL can effortlessly revitalize your complexion, giving you that vital boost in self-confidence that comes from loving your skin.
A personalized chemical peel will exfoliate the top layer of damaged skin while encouraging the regeneration of collagen reserves. Over time, the pores grow taut and smooth, providing you with a more youthful complexion and an enhanced self-image.
