What are My Treatment Options for Enlarged Pores?

Enlarged pores can cause grief and embarrassment among both men and women. Although genetics play the primary role in who gets them and who doesn’t, there are many other contributing factors as well. Oily skin can stretch our pores, prolonged UV-exposure can widen them, and pore size can become more prominent simply from the natural aging process.

If you’re like many and have tried promising ‘at home’ remedies to no avail, it may be time to seek out a science-backed solution for your aesthetic concerns. At Plymouth Meeting Dermatology, we offer a wide range of procedures tailored to your individual needs and goals.

Whether you’d like a non-invasive treatment that’ll have you back at your desk within the hour or a minimally-invasive procedure with dramatic long-lasting results, we have the just the thing. Let’s take a closer look at a few of our favorite options for reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.

HydraFacial MD®

HydraFacial MD® is ideal for patients looking for a quick pick-me-up. Treatments are done in-office in less than 30-minutes. The 4-in-1 procedure instantly cleanses, exfoliates, extracts impurities, and hydrates your skin. HydraFacial MD® is completely non-invasive making it safe for all skin types and tones. There’s no downtime involved, and you’ll walk out feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Vivace RF Microneedling

Vivace is a minimally-invasive treatment that combines advanced radiofrequency wavelengths with tried-and-true microneedling techniques. The procedure is safe and effective for treating enlarged pores on both the face and body. A smooth, radiant complexion can be seen in as little as one to three weeks with continued improvement lasting up to several months. A series of Vivace RF Microneedling sessions may be necessary to achieve an optimal outcome.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are minimally-invasive procedures that are designed to exfoliate and resurface the topmost layers of skin while stimulating skin renewal. Our practice offers an extensive array of peels that can be customized just for you. Results are long-lasting and recovery time is minimal.

Combining multiple procedures can maximize results while keeping downtime to a minimum. Following up your Vivace RF Microneedling with nourishing HydraFacial MD® treatments is a great way to achieve dramatic results before a big event or pre-vacation.

During your initial consultation, one of our skincare specialists will complete a facial assessment and talk to you about your short and long-term goals. Together, you’ll create an individualized treatment plan to help you get the look you want.
