Aesthetic Medicine Skin, Hair & Nails

I'm a 42 yo female and have been dealing with enlarged pores for a long time. My skin is mainly oily around the t-zone but my nose still experiences flaky skin.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (4)

Dear Nurdyana,

The appearance of enlarged pores is a very common issue among patients with oily skin. 

Oily skin contributes to large pore openings as excessive oil production leads to a build up of grime at the pore openings. This results in larger pores and eventually black heads and white heads over time.

There is evidence that excessive consumption of fat and carbohydrate can increase sebum production. On top of decreased sebum production, avoiding excessive fat and carbohydrate consumption has other obvious health benefits. This is the first advice we give to patients.

For certain acne-prone individuals, we can prescribe creams or medications like retinoids to control oil production. Retinoids like isotretonoin is very good for controlling sebum production and reducing pore size.  

Lasers like PicoSure, a US FDA-approved laser, has been shown to be effective in rejuvenating the skin through photomechanical disruption to produce LIBO or laser induced optical breakdown. New elastin and collagen is produced, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.

Other treatment methods like chemical peels and resurfacing lasers also help. Speak to your doctor for a consultation before deciding on the treatment best suited for you. Cheers!

Hello Nurdyana 

Thank you for your question. You can consider going for fractional ablative laser resurfacing (erbium/ CO2) or microneedling fractional radiofrequency (Infini) for small to medium sized pores. You can also add Rejuran Healer as a supplement to the treatment for better results.

Large pores can also be treated with TCA cross. Consult a doctor to get an accurate assessment before planning your treatment. Hope this helps!

Regards,

Dr Jiwei Wu

I absolutely agree with Dr Wu on the treatment plan. The treatments available include:

  • Fractional laser
  • Chemical peels
  • Microneedling
  • TCA cross 

However regardless of treatments, the right products which are light and adequately hydrating are still needed.

Consult your doctor for a more comprehensive plan.

Dear nurdyana,

Thank you for your question. Pores are breathing holes in your skin.

As the 2 doctors have explained, you have MANY options for treatment.

The best treatment depends on patient and doctor factors, so it is best to have a consultation with your doctor to share your concerns.

Have a great week ahead.
