Large Pores Treatment in Cleveland, Ohio

Pores contribute to our skin’s natural hydration process, moisturizing our skin and keeping it supple. But as our skin loses elasticity as we grow older, skin can stretch and sag, making pores appear larger. Age and sun damage also thickens skin, which causes a tiny gathering of cells around the pores, making them look bigger. Extensive sun exposure can also impact collagen, elastin, and water in your skin, causing the tissues to shrink and pull at the edge of pores.

Why are pores important?

Pores are necessary for maintaining healthy skin, but large pores can be frustrating. Genetics usually determine pore size, but aging, sun damage, oily skin, and blackheads can make pores look bigger. While you can’t change the size of your pores, there are methods to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.

How can I shrink my pores?

Topical treatments may work to shrink the appearance of large pores. Products with retinol can make pores appear smaller by increasing cell turnover, unclogging the pores. Retinol can help smooth skin with continued use, and paired with sunscreen use and regular skin cleansing can further improve the appearance of large pores. Cleansing and exfoliating will refresh the skin and remove collections of debris that increase pore size. Skin resurfacing with lasers, chemical peels, microneedling, or dermabrasion is also an effective treatment for increased pore size by refreshing the outer skin layers.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
