Pores are the opening points of hair follicles and sebaceous gland ducts to the skin. The pores enable the oil called sebum, which protects the skin from external factors and bacteria, to be carried to the skin surface. The oiliness of the skin and genetic characteristics are effective in the extent of the pores.
Pore enlargements are most common on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. The complaint of pore enlargement can also be seen on the entire facial skin.
What are the causes of pore enlargement?
– Usually in oily skin and those with blackheads, excess sebum accumulates in the pores, causing pore enlargement. Pore enlargements are often seen in acne patients. However, there may also be those who have pore enlargement and do not suffer from acne.
As a result of the decrease in collagen with age, the pores may become more pronounced with the sagging of the skin.
-Aging and sun damage on the skin cause the skin to thicken and the dead skin excretion slows down. Expansion of the pores occurs when dead skin cells that cannot be removed from the skin accumulate in the pores.
What applications are used to tighten pores?
Large-pored skin is treated for aesthetic purposes. However, it is not possible to destroy the pores. The aim of treatment should be to tighten and shrink the pores.
What are the methods used in the treatment?
Skin and Pore Cleaning:
The first thing to be done in the pore width is a medical skin care. The skin should be cleansed of dead skin and its pores should be cleaned.
Home care products are also of great importance in the treatment. Along with the treatments, the use of medical-containing products suitable for the skin is required.
It is a method applied with Q-Switch laser by applying a carbon solution to the skin. By absorbing the laser light of the carbon particles entering the pores and converting it to a high temperature, an intense collagen activation is provided in the pore. This also tightens the pores.
This method provides an intense collagen activation in the subcutaneous and pore wall with the effect of micro needles and the radiofrequency energy given at the tip. Thus, tightening of the pores occurs.
With repeated chemical peeling applications (Jesneer, glycolic acid, TCA peeling etc.), collagen is revitalized and the pores are tightened. In addition, if the patient has an active acne complaint, it contributes to the treatment.
