Large pores on the skin, also known as enlarged pores, are a common dermatological concern.

What are Large Pores?

These are visible openings of hair follicles and oil glands on the skin’s surface that appear larger, particularly as we age. Genetics, excessive oil production, age, and sun damage can contribute to their appearance. 

What Causes Large Pores?

When oil, dirt, and dead skin cells accumulate within these pores, they can appear larger and more pronounced. Although they primarily affect the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin), enlarged, open pores can be found on various areas of the face. Effective skincare routines involving gentle cleansing, exfoliation, and pore-minimising products can help manage their appearance and promote smoother-looking skin.

What is the treatment for Large Pores?

During treatment, the M22 laser emits controlled pulses of light energy that penetrate the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. This process aids in tightening and refining the appearance of enlarged pores, ultimately leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin. The fractional non-ablative approach ensures that only a fraction of the skin is treated in each session, minimising downtime and reducing the risk of adverse effects.

The M22 laser’s versatility allows for personalised treatment plans, tailoring the intensity and depth of the laser energy to the individual’s skin type and concern. Typically, multiple sessions are recommended for optimal results, as collagen remodelling and skin improvement occur gradually over time. The M22 laser by Lumenis offers a non-invasive and effective solution for addressing open pores. By harnessing the power of laser technology, it promotes collagen production, tightens skin and refines pore size, helping individuals achieve a smoother and more radiant complexion.
