Enlarged Pores


Pores are the hair follicle openings that also allow for the excretion of perspiration, oil, as well as other body toxins. When oil production is too heavy, or when pores become clogged and “overfilled” with oil and debris, the pores expand, causing enlarged pores.

Another reason for enlarged (or visible pores) is the aging process, where oil production as well as collagen and elastin naturally decreases.


Treatment Options Available for Enlarged Pores

  • Prescription Medications: There are prescriptions (oral or topical) that may help with this condition. Schedule a consultation if you would like to see what treatment options are best for you.

  • Intense Pulse Light (IPL): Ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries

  • Fractional Laser: Fractional laser scar treatment is the more comfortable alternative to surgery for acne scars and surgical scars, with remarkable results on any skin type, including very light and very dark skin.

  • Diamond Glow®
