Enlarged pores are an unfortunate result of hereditary, aging, acne and environmental factors affecting the skin. The most common areas affected are the T-zone of the forehead and face.
What is an enlarged pore? What causes enlarged pores?
Patients suffering from enlarged pores can be easily treated, using non-surgical pore reduction treatments with little down-time at SpaMedica. Enlarged pores are exactly that, pores on the skin that are larger than all the others. These enlarged pores are more visible to the naked eye and make the skin appear less smooth and even. The most common area for the enlarged pores is on the face.
Pores can become enlarged for a variety of reasons but most commonly it is age or acne. The natural aging process of the skin makes the pores less elastic which makes them more visible. Acne lesions can leave the pore stretched from the bacteria that had build up inside the pore and when the pore is “cleaned out’ it is left larger than normal.
Enlarged pores are an unfortunate result of hereditary and environmental factors affecting the skin, principally of the T-zone of the forehead and face. The T-zone is the area between the eyebrows and central forehead, bounded by the cheeks, nose and chin. It is this area of the face that is most commonly affected by enlarged pores. Pores are exit sites for underlying glandular structures, such as sweat glands and sebaceous hair glands. Enlarged pores can be the result of genetics, that is, hereditary predisposition, to oily, sebaceous and porous skin or it can be as a result of inflammatory conditions, such as Rosacea, erythema and acne.
