WHAT CAUSES VISIBLE LARGE PORES?
Large pores commonly affect individuals with oily skin as a collection of sebum and dirt builds up. This causes the skin to swell, making pores look larger than they really are. Age is also a factor as skin begins to lose its elasticity and tightness, which can exacerbate pores, making them appear bigger. In addition, sun exposure may cause the skin to thicken as additional skin cells are generated around the edges of the pores to protect them from UV rays, stretching them out and makes them larger.
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
An anti-aging technique, light therapy restores the youthfulness of your skin and produces results that look natural, making this method increasingly popular. Penetrating the skin at the right depth, light wavelengths help to activate cellular functions in the body which speeds up the pace of skin healing and rejuvenation. These functions also help to address several conditions at the same time, meaning that one session could potentially treat a few skin imperfections.
Light therapy is a non-invasive technique and does not cause any pain or discomfort, nor thermal damage. The technology has been successfully utilised by various governmental organisations to regenerate muscle and to heal wounds, and is known as a safe treatment procedure. It triggers the production of fresh collagen and elastin in the skin, which help to form constructive nets that hold the skin cells together, making it tighter and thus reducing large pores.
HOW LIGHT THERAPY WORKS TO REDUCE THE SIZE OF PORES
Similar to the process of photosynthesis, your body needs sunlight in order to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is used as fuel for metabolic processes that synthesis essential proteins, enzymes and more. The tissue also uses ATP to catalyse the process of healing and rejuvenation in the specific treatment area.
Results are dependent on your physical condition, age, diet and lifestyle. Changes may require up to 8-10 treatments before they are noticeable, but some patients have reported visible improvements almost immediately. After each session, you will notice a gradual improvement which allows you to gauge the difference before and after each treatment.
