- Treating Enlarged Pores
A very common complaint during times of hot and humid weather is enlarged pores, typically more obvious on the nose and cheeks. The size of your pores generally increases with age. If you have a genetic predisposition to excessive sebum production, you will experience oily skin and have bigger pores. With excess skin surface oil and inadequate exfoliation, dead skin cells accumulate inside the pores, making the pores appear even larger. The consequence of these oil plugs is more whiteheads (closed comedones), blackheads (open comedones), and pimples. The skin appears dull, lifeless and aged.
My treatment for enlarged pores is to prescribe a combination of laser rejuvenation, laser toning, gentle skin resurfacing lasers and Intense Pulse Light. With this treatment, you will not experience any pain nor downtime. This lunchtime procedure means that you can continue your usual activities without interruption.
