Pores are tiny openings of the oil glands which, when enlarged, can look unattractive and unhealthy. Pores or duct openings play a significant role in keeping the skin hydrated and in removing the toxins by releasing the sebum or natural oil onto the surface from deeper layers.
But enlarged pores could accumulate dirt and get clogged, leading to further complications like blackheads, pimples and excess sebum production. It can make the skin look coarse and dull.

What are the factors that enlarge the pores?

Enlargement of open pores could happen due to various factors. While extra sebum (oil) production is the most general reason, hormonal changes, thick hair follicles, Nutritional Deficiency and heredity factors are concerning factors too. Overexposure to sun and ageing could dry the skin and make it open up. Reduction of collagen production loosens the skin and cause the pores to widen. Hence, most treatments aim to naturally induce collagen production to reduce the pores and restore skin texture.

How to get rid of the pores?

There are different ways and procedures to treat open pores. Here are a few of our specialised treatments:

Treatment is a proven way to rejuvenate and tighten up the skin, reducing open pores, pigmentation, acne scars and stretch marks. The treatment uses fractional radiofrequency (RF) technology with skin-rejuvenating microneedling therapy for repairing and remodelling the skin at a cellular level, thereby effectively reducing open pores.

TCA Cross peel denature proteins at the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen synthesis. It thickens the skin and improves the skin texture.

Pixel treatment is a skin resurfacing procedure with minimal downtime. Pixel RF creates microplasma wounds that heal within seven to eight days post-treatment. It increases new tissue formation by activating the skin’s natural healing process and enhances skin tightening. Collagen remodelling effects of the therapy tightens the skin and reduces open pores.

It is a minute dosage of hyperdiluted Botox, injected in areas where regular Botox is not normally injected. It reduces sebum production and shrinks the pores. Mesobotox is superficially injected into the skin compared to the muscle in regular Botox.

Is it possible to close the pores

Permanent closing of open pores is impossible as pores are essential to lubricate the skin with essential oils and maintain skin health. But large open pores could lead to acne formation, rough skin texture and makes premature ageing more visible.
