Enlarge Pores Treatment Singapore

Struggling with enlarged pores? Learn how we can help you.

One of the most stubborn and hard-to-treat skin care problem is enlarged pores. Simply put, they’re tough to remove completely. You might feel like you’ve tried everything, but, in fact, most people end up using products or treatments that actually make matters worse.

Dr Tyng Tan Aesthetics and Hair Clinic offers medical aesthetic procedures such laser resurfacing and chemical peels that can make pores appear smaller with a lasting effect. Non-ablative laser treatments increase collagen production which tightens pores, causing them to look smaller. A glycolic acid peel, on the other hand, help reduce the look of enlarged pores.

What Causes Large Pores?

1. Genetics – you are just born with them.
2. Oily skin
3. Poor Hygiene
4. Sun damage
5. Loss of collagen, elastin and water in the skin

Pores are necessary for the skin to breathe and produce natural skin oils to defend against dehydration. Why some people are more likely to encounter this is poorly understood. Having enlarged pores makes the skin look unhealthy and unhygienic. It also magnifies any dirt and grime that is clogged inside, especially when there are significant amounts found within.

The Treatment

Medical Lasers can be used to effectively reduce the size of the enlarged pores, by treating the areas affected (commonly the nose, cheeks and forehead).

A recent study shows that fractional photothermolysis — a form of laser therapy — is successful in not just treating acne scars but also temporarily decreasing the size of pores . The procedure removes outer layers of skin and clears debris from pores, cleaning them out and minimizing the dilation that comes with blockage.

No Downtime

The treatment is done without the need of topical anaesthetics, and there is no downtime. The patient feels mild warmth in the treated areas. Optimal results can be seen within 3-5 treatment sessions. The treatment can also be combined with other therapies to achieve multiple skin improvements.

1. How can I prevent enlarged pores?

Maintaining healthy skin condition requires the most basic of skincare steps. This also goes for keeping the skin’s appearance in preventing enlarged pores. 

a. Wash your face regularly using a gentle facial cleanser. Warm water can help when lathering because it also helps loosen up dirt and oil. Finish with a cold water rinse to shrink the pores.

b. Apply a moisturizer that suits your skin type.

c. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen every day to avoid sun damage.

2. What problems can arise with enlarged pores?

Enlarged pores can attract the buildup of dirt, oil and bacteria. This can lead to whiteheads and blackheads, which only aggravates the general appearance of an unhealthy skin. The presence of bacteria can lead to inflammation, which results in pimple formation.

3. What are the treatments available for enlarged pores?

There are several treatments available for addressing enlarged pores, which include the use of pore minimizing creams, exfoliants, gentle cleanser, and Alpha and Beta acids.

Aesthetic treatments, like microdermabrasion and medical facials, are also excellent treatment options.

At Dr Tyng Tan Aesthetic and Hair Clinic, however, we employ laser skin resurfacing treatments to address enlarged pores. Because it works on stimulating new collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, this helps to plump up the skin surface and compress the size of the pores.

4. Will I still have the risk of getting an enlarged pore size after having treatment?

Maintaining a finer pore size is dependent on good skin care. Failing to do so will only cause another oil and dirt buildup causing the pores to enlarge once again. Continued sun damage on top of skin aging can also cause the problem to worsen or reoccur.

5. Are treatments for enlarge pores size expensive?

Not necessarily. While the rules of good skin care will always help you out, however if you want to achieve dramatic results much faster, laser treatments can be money well spent. It is a safe and effective way to tighten the skin and consequently your pore size.

6. Is the treatment painful?

No, the treatment will only create a warm sensation on the treated area. You won’t even need an anesthetic prior to the treatment.
