Enlarged pores

What Causes Enlarged Pores?

The human body is covered in tiny vellus hairs that are attached to sebaceous glands. These glands make the natural oil your body needs to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Usually, pores retain their normal size despite the production of this oil, but certain issues can cause pores to become dilated. Decreased skin elasticity from aging and sun damage, more hair follicles, and excessive sebum (oil) production can all lead to enlarged pores.

How Are These Issues Addressed?

Tetra CO2 CoolPeel® is a laser that resurfaces your skin. It improves texture and tone and minimizes skin damage due to acne and large pores. Treatments typically take 5-15 minutes and require little, if any, downtime. The best part of this treatment is that it stimulates collagen production, helping your body heal from within.

What Can I Expect?

When you arrive at our office, we will take the time to evaluate your skin and determine if this treatment is right for you. If so, the procedure can begin right away. We will glide the CoolPeel® handpiece across your face. During the process, you will feel heat as the laser goes to work.

You should expect to be a little red, as if you have a sunburn, for 1-2 days. Also, your skin may feel dry and scaly as it heals, so it is important to keep the skin hydrated.
