How We Improve Porous Skin at JolieMD Anti- Aging Institute

Pores around the cheeks and nose are often a very difficult problem to improve with skin creams alone. At JolieMD, the our team of doctors and nurses have had amazing results using a combination of our patent pending skin care regimen used in combination with fractional non-ablative laser treatments that together stimulate an increase in collagen production, which results in firmer, fresher skin. When the skin is healthy and plump, pore size is minimized.

Effective results are usually achieved with just 2 – 3 sessions and minimal downtime is required afterwards. Please contact our Beverly Hills office to learn more about how skin resurfacing can shrink large pores and rejuvenate your appearance.

Large pores contribute to uneven skin tone and texture. Whether you’ve suffered from large pores your entire life or have recently noticed enlarged pores on your face, skin resurfacing can provide an effective way to shrink large pores and improve your appearance.

What are Pores?

Pores are tiny holes in the surface of the skin that lead to sebaceous glands. Sebaceous glands release sebum, a natural oil that protects and moisturizes the skin. Pores also play a role in regulating body temperature by releasing small amounts of water. They are found everywhere on the human body, with the exception of the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Pores occur in the greatest concentration on the face and scalp.

Large Pores

Pores can become enlarged anywhere on the body, but we receive the most complaints from patients who have large pores on their face. Not only is the most visible part of the body, but it’s also one of the areas where pores are most likely to become enlarged. Pores can become larger when dirt and sebum collect in the skin, causing the pores to swell and become more visible. Some people are born with large pores, while others notice that their pores have slowly grown larger over time.

Researchers have determined that three key factors contribute to pore size, including:

  • Oily skin
  • Age (as skin becomes less elastic, pores tend to stretch and become more visible)
  • Genetics
