Signs and Symptoms

Pores are small openings in the skin that are connected to hair follicles, sweat glands and oil glands. They are necessary for body temperature regulation, the secretion of toxins, and keeping the skin moisturised. In general, pores are quite small and barely noticeable, but in some cases they can become enlarged. Enlarged pores give the appearance of pits in the skin; resulting in an uneven skin tone.

Enlarged pores are most prominent on the nose, chin and cheeks, making them very hard to conceal. Makeup tends to cling to the pores, highlighting them rather than hiding them, and clogging the pore to make their appearance worse.

Why Do I Have It?

Enlarged pores can be attributed to an increase of sebum and oil production, both of which often occur during puberty. Excessive oil and sebum production contributes to break outs of blackheads, whiteheads and acne. The pimples themselves can cause nearbyΒ pores to be stretched while the squeezing and picking that ensues enlarges them further.

Once a pore has become enlarged it is unable to shrink (naturally) back to its original size.

Treatment Solutions

Skin Needling

Micro-Needling is a skin treatment that combines needling and Mesotherapy to help smooth skin texture, soften scarring, and minimise the appearance of wrinkles.

Enzyme Therapy

Enzymes are living substances that regulate health and work with certain minerals in the body to form a natural system of antioxidants that fight corrosive free radicals.

Skinsitut Peels

A controlled destruction of the outer skin layers (epidermis and upper dermis) is achieved, which is followed by skin repair and regeneration.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion entails virtually no discomfort, downtime or recovery. The treatment is not painful, and because it has no downtime, there is almost no risk of side effects.

I had micro needling done with dermal clinician Megan. She is very personable, professional and passionate about her work. She gave me a thorough briefing of the procedure and answered all of my questions during the consult. The treatment went very smoothly and I knew I was in safe hands. Looking forward to the results!

Mal was simply the most amazing and best consultation I've ever had here! She takes great care, eases you in the process as it is a bit scary, and very professional. The treatment has worked really well for me so far. I have an Indian dusky skin tone and had many queries and doubts going in. However, all my doubts were clearly answered and I would highly recommend the clinic to anyone looking for laser treatments! The place is very clean, organised, has great ambience and offers great services!

VicLaser in Collins St. is a relaxing and clean facility. Ms. Mal looks after me, very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable of what she does since the day I started my sessions, and will always make sure you feel comfortable before, during and after the service. Had a very nice experience and still going. Kudos to this branch especially to Ms. Mal πŸ‘πŸ»β˜ΊοΈ
