WHAT CAUSES PORES?
Large pores tend to appear on oily skin as the sebum and dirt collect, causing your skin to swell and pores to appear larger than usual. Individuals who tend to have oily skin often have large pores as well. Aging is another factor that causes large pores as the skin loses its elasticity, which may cause pores to look bigger. The sun may also cause large pores to form as the skin thickens, resulting in additional skin cells forming around the edges of the pores which stretch them out.
HOW CAN LARGE PORES BE TREATED?
Large pores which develop on your skin may be treated using Fractional Laser Resurfacing (Lux1540, non-ablative), a new technology in the aesthetics industry. Laser energy micro beams are used to break down the tissue of the epidermis, after which new, healthy skin grows over the treatment area. Similar to using deep chemical peels or ablative lasers, this new technology can help improve your skin without the discomfort or downtime caused by regular methods. As your skin heals naturally, the new layer will appear glowing and radiant, leaving you feeling and looking younger. Make-up can be used immediately after the procedure and no visible wounds are left on your skin.
HOW OFTEN I NEED LASER TREATMENT?
Your doctor will consult you on the optimum number of treatment sessions but depending on your skin, treatments are generally about 1-4 weeks apart and come up to a total of 4-5 treatments. After each session, your skin should progressively feel firmer and refreshed which leads to a faster recovery time for subsequent visits.* Furthermore, a healthy skincare routine consisting of facials and products should help you to maintain your glowing complexion as well.
