Large Pores & Blackheads

Very few people are blessed with porcelain fine skin! For many of us, large pores and blackheads are a fact of life and can get larger over time. It doesn’t have to be this way thanks to a huge range of fantastic treatments, procedures and skincare products.

The problem

Large open pores can make the skin look and feel thicker, duller and older than it is and the older we get, the more dilated the pores become. Blackheads can also draw attention to pores by either expanding the opening, or making them more obvious simply due to the dark colour. Similarly with whiteheads that are essentially filled with the same material as a blackhead, but remain white because they only have a microscopic opening to the skins surface and don’t become oxidized.

The cause

Pores provide a pathway for hair to grow and the skin’s natural oil to reach the surface and hydrate our skin. People with oily, thicker skin tend have larger, more obvious pores which can be exacerbated with environmentally damaged skin. Blackheads are pores that have a wider than normal opening and are filled with plugs of sebaceous oil, dead skin cells and bacteria that have chemically reacted to oxygen in the air resulting in the oxidation of melanin, giving it a black colour.

How we can help

We have a range of treatments ranging from treatments such as Clear + Brilliant™ to HydraFacial MD and procedure peels that will leave the skin cleansed and refined. These results are further enhanced with medical-grade skincare containing ingredients such as AHA, glycolic acid and salicylic acids.
