HOW TO: Minimize Pores | Enlarged Pore Treatments
It’s a myth that you can physically shrink pores. The fact is that pore size is genetic (thanks, mom and dad!) You most definitely can reduce their appearance though. Let’s drill down on causes and solutions in our post How To Minimize Pores | Enlarged Pore Treatments
Problem #1 — Clogged Pores
Impurities such as dirt, oils and debris can get stuck in pores. At the same time, dead skin cells can build up around their edges. These two things make pores appear larger.
Problem #2 — Aging
You likely knew aging causes the skin to sag. Well, the same holds true for our pores. As we age, we produce less collagen and elastin. When this criss-cross network under the skin can no longer provide enough support, our pores grow lax and don’t look as tight.
Top 3 Solutions to Minimize Pores and Even Skin Texture
AquaGold Facial with Botox for Enlarged Pores
An AquaGold Facial includes a personalized cocktail of skin-repairing ingredients that are microneedled into the superficial layers of the skin. When a small amount of Botox is included, one client referred to this treatment as “instant glass skin”. No arguments from us there!
Tight & Bright Laser to Minimize Pores
The Tight & Bright Treatment uses a non-ablative YAG laser to gently and effectively warms the upper dermis of the skin. This works on the skin’s surface to minimize skin imperfections, while boosting skin rejuvenation from the deeper layers. That’s true synergy!
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial for Pores
Another treatment that comes together to reveal smooth, even skin is a PRP Facial aka Vampire Facial Renowned for its ability to heal, PRP is the richest growth factor found in your own blood. When used with microneedling, it works to repair the surface of the skin. When injected under the skin, it sparks a strong process of collagen renewal.
