If you struggle with enlarged pores, you’re not alone. Enlarged pores are a common concern for both men and women and most frequently appear around the nose, cheeks, and chin. Treating enlarged pores with over-the-counter skin care products rarely delivers results. But it’s not impossible to reduce the size of your pores and discover smooth skin. The experts at BodyLase® Med Spa offer advanced skin treatments to treat enlarged pores and other common concerns.

What Causes Enlarged Pores?

Factors that cause enlarged pores include aging, reduced skin elasticity, increased volume of hair follicles, and excessive production of sebum — a natural oil in your skin. As you age, your skin loses elasticity, causing pores to dilate and appear larger. Excessive sebum production can clog pores, making them appear enlarged. 

3 Treatments to Help Shrink Enlarged Pores 

At BodyLase Med Spa, we understand the underlying causes of enlarged pores and offer advanced treatments to address them effectively.

1. SkinPen® Microneedling 

SkinPen microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a small pen-like device to create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. These controlled micro-injuries stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, promoting collagen production and improving skin texture. 

2. Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Morpheus8 RF microneedling is a powerful cosmetic treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) technology to provide deeper and more noticeable results than microneedling alone. This procedure uses a device with tiny needles that penetrate the skin and simultaneously deliver RF energy. The RF energy gently heats the underlying tissue to stimulate collagen production, tightening and smoothing the skin and shrinking enlarged pores.

3. IPL Photofacial

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses high-intensity light to target skin concerns, including enlarged pores. This quick and simple procedure encourages collagen production, reduces sebum production, and kills acne-causing bacteria on your skin. 

You can combine an IPL photofacial with other treatments, such as Laser facials and chemical peels, to create a synergistic effect that enhances your results. Clear+Brilliant and Fraxel skin resurfacing can further boost collagen production and better manage pore size.
