When we think about our ideal skin, we may consider how we would like to reduce problems like fine lines and wrinkles. For many people, the point of concern is actually enlarged pores, a condition for which some are genetically predisposed. Enlarged pores are more than a cosmetic concern when pores are too large, there is also the likelihood that the skin’s health will be affected.
Acne, in particular, is a concern for individuals with enlarged pores. Acne is a condition that we typically associate with teenagers and adolescent hormones. We may even have the perception that acne is, in part, due to a lack of hygiene or skincare. In reality, adults of all ages, especially if pores are enlarged, can suffer from persistent breakouts.
A skincare plan that is tailored to your needs is far more successful and less risky than over the counter products that contain basic ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. When dealing with enlarged pores, it may be best to use a prescribed topical solution or one that contains retinoids. What matters most is that your skin’s needs are addressed with individualized care planning.
The problem of enlarged pores is not a “once and done” kind of condition in terms of treatment. We recommend regular treatments for this skin concern and follow up with our clients when they begin a new skincare regimen. Any time a new routine or product is used, results can be seen two to three months down the line. Giving up on a skin care plan before this time can be a mistake. When you receive care from a Seriously Skin physician, you have someplace to turn if you have questions or feel discouraged about a seeming lack of results.
We offer several options for the treatment of enlarged pores. These include:
- ProFractional Therapy
- MicroLaser Peel
- Chemical peels
- SilkPeel Dermalinfusion
- ThermaScan 1319
- QX MAX Acne Laser Facials
- Pharmaceutical Home Care Regimen
Where a singular form of therapy may be right for some, we may also recommend a combination of treatments to achieve the greatest improvement in the appearance of pores and the overall health of the skin.
