Pores, the microscopic openings in the skin that allow perspiration to the surface, can sometimes have an enlarged appearance on the face. There are several reasons why men and women have enlarged pores, but at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre, we have multiple treatment options available to minimize the appearance of pores and create clearer skin without surgery or downtime.
Located in Delta, British Columbia, Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre is led by Dr. Marcia Fleming and registered nurse Jennifer Sutherland. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how our experienced medical team can reduce the appearance of your enlarged pores.
What Causes Enlarged Pores?
In addition to cooling the skin through perspiration, pores also help protect the skin by releasing oil. Although enlarged pores do not necessarily indicate an underlying medical condition, many patients choose to undergo cosmetic treatments to reduce the appearance of their pores.
Enlarged pores can be caused by a variety of reasons, including:
- The buildup of oil or skin cells in the pores, causing them to clog
- Sun damage in aging skin
While enlarged pores do not lead to any serious conditions, they can become clogged if left untreated, potentially causing pimples or blackheads. Keeping your pores cleaned out can eliminate the formation of chronic skin conditions as well as make your pores less visible, and we have several options at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre for your skincare needs.
How are Enlarged Pores Treated?
As the skin ages, it is more vulnerable to the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun. As prolonged sun exposure damages the collagen fibers the strengthen and plump the skin, the pores can become enlarged during this process. Using sunscreen regularly is often the skin’s first line of defense against developed enlarged pores, and we have a variety of advanced, medical-grade skincare products at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre to help protect aging skin from the sun.
We also offer a number of non-surgical treatments to gently resurface the face and cleanse the pores, such as:
- HydraFacial, which utilizes customizable serums and exfoliation to lightly remove the outermost layers of skin and refresh and renew your appearance.
- Fraxel® Laser safely and effectively delivers fractionated laser energy to treated areas without compromising surrounding skin or tissues
- IPL Photorejuvenation is popular light-based treatment that emits multiple wavelengths of pulsed light to treated areas, bypassing the skin surface and treating skin imperfections at a cellular level.
During your consultation at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre, our medical team will listen to your concerns and create a treatment plan that is customized to your individual skincare needs.
