Large open pores are a common concern and can be challenging to treat. Come of the main causes of enlarged pores are: high sebum production, loss of elastin and collagen, sun damage, clogged pores, genetics and hormonal changes. At Drs Tatiana + Rishi Advanced Aesthetics, we offer options of topical skincare, chemical peels, specialist lasers and other energy-based devices to combat the causes of large pores.
A constructive and effective daily skincare programme is important in addressing the causes of open pores. Ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and retinol are helpful in reducing sebum production, exfoliating the skin, tightening the pores and smoothing the skin texture. Effective topical skincare enables you to maintain the results of your medical facial treatments for longer. Following a thorough consultation, your practitioner will recommend a tailored topical skincare programme
The principle of skin resurfacing is to inflict a controlled injury to the skin; the injured skin then repairs and creates new collagen, elastin and skin hydrators, resulting in a new healthy layer of skin. CO2 laser resurfacing is very effective at addressing pores.
Microneedling is a treatment that involves tiny needles that stimulate skin repair and create channels into the skin, enabling the absorption of nutrients applied to the skin surface. In order to reduce pores, we combine microneedling with an acid peel. This tightens pores and smooths the skin. This facial gives long-term improvement of pores and texture.
Morpheus 8 is a device that combines microneedling with radiofrequency heat energy to smooth and firm the skin. As the small needles enter the skin, the tips of the needles heat up with radiofrequency energy. This sends controlled heat energy into the upper layers of the skin and stimulates collagen production, thus tightening, firming and smoothing the skin over several months after the treatment. Morpheus 8 is safe for any skin type and can be used alongside other treatments such as dermal fillers.
SecretRF is an evolution of microneedling with radiofrequency. This device works by precisely inserting small needles into different depths of the skin, creating microchannels, with the subsequent delivery of radiofrequency heat energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thereby tightening the skin and shrinking pores. The motor mechanism of the SecretRF is extremely smooth and it’s needles particularly precise and well-insulated, resulting in minimal downtime and being suitable for all skin types.
This dynamic, non-ablative treatment, pairs RF microneedling with an erbium glass laser. The RF microneedles deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin via precise needles, whilst the laser gently delivers powerful beams to the skin in microcolumns, creating bulk heating. This works to effectively target common signs of ageing and skin concerns in any skin type, with almost no downtime and an instant glass-like glow to the skin.
This facial treatment is a combination of 3 of our most effective therapies used to treat large pores. First, the skin is micro-needled, stimulating skin repair and creating channels into the deeper layers of the skin. Second, a bespoke acid solution is applied to the skin, penetrating deep into the skin to clear our debris, shrink sebaceous glands and exfoliate the skin. Third, the T-zone is treated with a CO2 laser, resurfacing and shrinking large pores. We then finish with a hydrating mask and LED therapy to calm the skin.
