Enlarged pores are very common and can affect anyone. They typically appear as depressions in the facial skin surface that can contain one or more openings and can hold sweat and skin oils
At Skin Technique in Vancouver, we have several treatments that can reduce enlarged pores and give you healthy, smooth and glowing skin.
What Are Enlarged Pores?
When you look closely at your skin in the mirror, you may notice small bumps or indentations. These are your pores, and their size is determined by the amount of oil your skin produces. Enlarged pores can be unsightly and may make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Luckily, there are a number of treatments available to help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. By taking care of your skin and following a regular skincare routine and treatments, you can help keep your pores looking healthy and minimized.
What Causes Enlarged Pores?
If your pores become enlarged, it can be due to a variety of factors, including genetics, age, and excess oil production. Enlarged pores can also be caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, dirt, and oil. This can lead to blackheads or whiteheads forming, further enlarging the pore.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure known as collagen induction therapy and percutaneous collagen injection. Using precise needles, the device stimulates the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing young, glowing skin underneath.

AquaGold is a unique and highly effective treatment that consists of a proprietary cocktail of super ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamins and anti-wrinkle treatments gently stamped into the skin. This brightens the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves acne scarring for areas such as the neck and décolleté area, the face and hands, and even on the delicate skin immediately beneath the eye, and in places you can’t go with traditional anti-wrinkle injections.
Enlarged Pores FAQ
Can you fix an enlarged pore?
While there is no way to eliminate enlarged pores completely, there are some steps you can take to minimize their appearance. First, it’s important to clean your face thoroughly each day to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Use a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water, as harsh scrubbing can irritate the skin and make pores appear more prominent.
It would be best if you also exfoliated regularly to slough away dead skin cells that can clog pores and make them look larger. Be sure to use a light moisturizer to keep skin hydrated; dry skin is more likely to show the appearance of enlarged pores.
Finally, receiving routine treatments to address your enlarged pores will ensure the best outcome possible.
By following these simple steps, you can help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and achieve healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
