Enlarged Pores

Enlarged pores are a common concern for many of us.

If you have enlarged pores on your face or around your nose then here at Continental Skin Clinic our specialists are fully qualified to help reduce the appearance of large pores, getting your skin closer to a smoother, refined complexion.

We have a variety of enlarged pores treatment options to help you get rid of enlarged pores on your face and enlarged pores around your nose.

What are enlarged pores?

Enlarged pores are depressions in the facial skin surface that contain one or more openings to the ducts carrying sweat and oil from their respective eccrine glands and sebaceous glands.

Causes of Enlarged Pores

  • High levels of oil (sebum) production
  • Reduced elasticity around pores
  • Thick hair follicles
  • Genetics or heredity
  • Reduction of collagen production in the skin, caused by aging
  • Sun damage or overexposure to the sun

How we can help

We have a variety of enlarged pores treatment options:

  • Chemical peels that use glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and retinoids help accelerate cellular turnover and force excess sebum out of pores, reducing the volume within them and therefore diminishing their appearance 
  • Microdermabrasion removes the top layer of skin so that a new layer of firmer, more elastic, and smooth skin can form.
  • Laser, Fractional Microneedling RF, and Ultraformer III; Targeted thermal or ultrasound energy remodels collagen fibers to increase skin elasticity and reduce sebum production.

For enlarged pores on your face, you can use one of our enlarged pores treatments standalone or combined in a personalised treatment plan procedures:

– Ultraformer III (HIFU)

Infini RF Microneedling


– Laser Toning

– Hollywood Laser Carbon Peel 

And other treatments can be included depending on the skin state and area of concern. Please bear in mind that finalised treatment plan can be chosen only after face-to-face assessment for the best result.

How to prevent enlarged pores

  • Keep your face clean by cleansing twice daily and exfoliating once a week
  • Practice sun safety and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen daily
  • Use makeup sparingly and use non-comedogenic products, meaning it doesn’t clog pores
  • Maintain a healthy diet
  • Avoid hot showers
