Enlarged Pores

Pores are a normal part of our skin and are depressions in the facial skin that contain openings to the ducts carrying sweat and oil. Enlarged pores may occur with increased sebum (oil) production, loss of skin elasticity with age and sun damage.  Open comedones or blackheads are pores that are clogged with oil and dead skin cells and appear as noticeable enlarged pores. 

Closed comedones have a roof of skin cells and are not exposed to air but can be a precursor to acne lesions. It  is desirable to have 'porcelain' skin where the pores are not noticeable.  Even though it is not possible to abolish pores altogether it is possible to minimise the appearance. 

The first step is to use medical grade skin care with a twice daily routine that starts with an effective cleanse. 

The Jan Marini range has a number of cleanses but the Bioglycolic cleanser which is in the Jan Marini pack, contains glycolic acid which acts to breakdown the 'glue' that holds dead skin cells together, thus acting to resurface the skin with each use. 

This is effectively unblocking the pores and making them less obvious.  We also recommend regular exfoliation and medical peels as well as the regular use of a topical Retinol. 

Treatments that stimulate collagen production such as Microneedling, Venus Viva resurfacing and Laser Genesis all help to refine the skin and minimise pores.
