Enlarged Pores Laser Treatment Singapore

Why do I have Enlarged Pores?

Pores are visible openings on the skin that correspond to the pilo-sebaceous gland unit opening.

Enlarged pores are a very common concern.

Causes of Enlarged Pores

People with acne and predominantly oily skin types have larger pores as well.

Pore size is also enlarged during menstrual cycle.

Other factors for enlarged pores include genetics, hair follicle size, loss of skin elasticity, chronic sun-damage and ethnicity.

With increasing age, there is not only a reduction in collagen and elastin, there is also an increase in the enzymatic degradation of these two elements by free radicals.

Skin architecture is weakened, and this is why acne scars, enlarged pores and skin laxity becomes more visible with age.

Pore Size Reduction Treatments

Pore size reduction treatments are aimed at the underlying cause. The treatments are directed towards lowering sebum output, reducing androgen activity, and stimulating new collagen and elastin formation.

Topical Cream Treatments

Topical retinoid creams (Vitamin A) are established treatments for acne vulgaris and their antiaging effects.

Topical retinoids have benefits such as increased skin cell turnover, anti-inflammatory effects and reducing blackheads and whiteheads formation.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels such as glycolic acid, which have been used for their skin rejuvenating effects may improve pore size.


Oral Treatments

Oral acne medications are effective at significantly reducing sebum output by 4-6 weeks. Many report significant and visible improvement in their inflammatory acne, comedomes and enlarged pores during treatment.

Other oral acne medications reduce oil production because of anti-androgen effect.

TCA CROSS For Enlarged Pores

The TCA CROSS procedure suitable for deep enlarged pores, and ice pick scars.

TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) uses high concentration acids to denature the proteins at the deeper layers of the skin which stimulates collagen synthesis and improves your enlarged pores appearance.

Most individuals will see improvement after 3-4 sessions.

Lasers for Enlarged Pores

Lasers remodel dermal collagen.

The synthesis new collagen improves skin elasticity and tightens enlarged pores.

For moderately-severe enlarged pores and acne scars, we recommend INFINI which is a fractional radio-frequency micro-needling treatment.
