Here at Skin Care Institute in Tulsa, one of the most common cosmetic concerns we hear from our patients is about pore size. Whether they’re too big, too oily or you’re too afraid to look, pores can certainly be a problem.
In fact, a recent article that appeared in Skin Inc. Magazine stated that “Of more than 2,000 adults in February 2014 Harris Poll on behalf of L’Oréal Paris, nearly half of women (45%) wish they could change the size of their pores and almost one in three women (28%) are more concerned about their pore size than wrinkles.”
While large pores are largely the result of genetics as well as oil secretion in adolescence, there are a variety of non-and minimally invasive treatments that exist which can dramatically reduce their appearance. If you want your pores to appear smaller and your complexion more refined and radiant, keep reading!
One safe and effective option for reducing the appearance of large pores are regular chemical peels in Tulsa. Chemical peels rid the surface of the skin of dead skin cells and impurities, preventing the blockages that can make the pores look larger. We offer a variety of chemical peel formulas and strengths, from the MicroLaserPeel to the SkinMedica Illuminize, Rejuvenize and Vitalize peels and more.
Micro-needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, can also dramatically reduce the appearance of pores. MicroPen™ uses tiny needles to create painless, micro-injuries on the surface of the skin, thereby increasing the production collagen and elastin, remodeling the skin to be smoother, with a more even texture.
Clear + Brilliant laser skin rejuvenation, a non-invasive, no downtime treatment, reduces the appearance of pores with safe and effective laser energy. The laser energy replaces damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
As with many of our advanced Tulsa medical spa procedures, a series of these treatments is recommended for optimal results.
