Why Are Your Pores So Big?

Pores are the tiny openings in your skin at the top of hair follicles found all over your body. They emit sebum, your body’s natural oil, to help lubricate your skin for a healthy-looking appearance. The average person has a total of five million pores with about 20,000 of them appearing on your face.

Are you fixated on your large, pore size? Nearly half of women want to reduce their pore size and 28% are more bothered by their large pores than wrinkles. Now there’s a way to reduce your pore size and get flawless, picture-perfect skin.

Anushka Med Spa provides laser skin rejuvenation to patients in West Palm, Florida who want to address their pore size and reap a variety of other skin enhancements.

What causes large pores?

Large pores can be frustrating. You may think your pores are preventing you from having beautiful skin. 

But you probably noticed that your pores didn’t look like this when you were younger. That’s because as you age, your skin loses its firmness which results in sagging skin and the appearance of large pores.

Genetics is the main cause behind why your pore size may appear larger than you’d like. After genetics, your skincare regimen — or lack thereof — may be the culprit. When you don’t take care of your skin, your pores may become clogged with dead skin cells and oil. This can stretch out your pores and cause an enlarged appearance. 

Unprotected sun exposure can cause your pores to look bigger. Sun damage decreases the thickness of your skin while also extracting healthy properties — like collagen, water, and elasticity. It also significantly damages your DNA which impairs new skin growth and can result in cell death and photoaging.

What you can do about it?

While you can’t prevent the natural aging process, you can do something about it. Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the best ways to address skin concerns like large pores to give you younger-looking skin. 

This minimally invasive procedure is the key to many celebrities and beauty experts’ flawless, even-toned skin. Have you heard about laser rejuvenation but are still wondering how it works?

Using state-of-the-art Cutera lasers, Bonnie Marting, DNP, APRN smooths away imperfections and strengthens the overall structure of your skin. Dr. Marting uses a handheld device to heat your skin and to gently encourage the shedding of old skin cells and layers. 

The Cutera Laser Genesis reduces your pore size, effectively shrinks enlarged sebaceous glands, and helps prevent future acne breakouts. It also increases your cellular turnover, improving redness and rosacea, while giving you an overall more radiant complexion. 

For hyperpigmentation, the Cutera Limelight provides comprehensive laser rejuvenation for those looking to target dark spots and sun damage. Unlike many laser treatments, Cutera laser rejuvenation treatments are comfortable and relaxing.

Your skin responds to this energy delivery and ramps up its collagen production to produce a healthy new layer of skin. This fresh layer of skin will also be tighter which helps to noticeably reduce large pores. 

Benefits of treatment

While smaller pores and youthful skin are two of the wonderful benefits, they’re not the only ones. The wound-healing reaction of laser rejuvenation brings many other benefits to your skin like:

Most laser resurfacing treatments take one to two hours. One of the best parts of laser resurfacing is its minimal downtime. Most patients only experience mild side effects that generally go away in a few days. 

While you’ll notice an improvement in your skin after your treatment, the full results will gradually appear during the weeks to months following. Most patients need a series of three treatments to get the results they want.
