Many young and quite mature women are concerned about the expanded pores on the face. The person loses a healthy color, becomes earthy and stale. The skin, especially on the cheeks, chin and near the nose, loses elasticity and smoothness, and with insufficient attention to the problem, the pores become not just dots, but bulging sloppy bumps. Most often this problem is relevant for owners of oily or combination skin, but the most unpleasant is that the convex enlarged pores are not only an aesthetic drawback. They can also become the cause of inflammatory foci, because the fat produced by the skin without proper cleansing turns into nutrient soil for all kinds of bacteria.
Most of the time it is in the called T-zone, which unites the forehead, nose and chin. Unfortunately, in a number of cases, when, for example, enlarged pores are a hereditary predisposition, the problem cannot be completely eliminated. But with the help of special care and available procedures, you can achieve significant improvement in the face, make the skin more elastic, and the pores less noticeable.
Causes of enlarged pores on the face:
Pores on the skin are original hatches in a real chemical laboratory. Under the surface of the skin is a hair bulb and sebaceous glands. And the more intensive the glands, the more prominent and large the pores become. With the reduction in the production of fat, pores are reduced. It is important to take care of the face, so that in the pores do not accumulate the smallest dust mixed with fat.
Inflammation and increase in pores contribute to other factors:
- Disruption of the endocrine system.
- Hormonal bursts.
- Stress and chronic fatigue.
- Taking some types of medicines.
- Weakened immunity.
- Excessive use of decorative cosmetics.
- Low-quality cosmetics or care products.
- Insufficient, irregular or incorrect care of problem skin.
If there are concerns that the problems with the pores are caused by some diseases, frequent stresses or a decrease in the protective properties of the body, then do not delay. It is better to go through the examination straight away and get medical help if it is necessary. An integrated approach in this case will give a much more visible and lasting result than any local measures.
Methods for eliminating expanded pores:
Surface chemical peels based on fruit and other acids (trichloroacetic, salicylic, retinol, glycolic, etc.) well remove the dead skin layer, stimulating its renewal. They not only purify the pores of fat, dirty and epithelium cells, but also contribute to their narrowing, smoothing the skin’s relief and updating its structure.
Such a procedure as microdermabrasion is a mechanical peeling by microparticles submitted by a jet under pressure. They act like chemical peels, cleansing the skin, contributing to its renewal and narrowing of the pores.
Biorevitalization is injections of hyaluronic acid preparations that increase the hydration of the skin. This in itself contributes to improving the structure of the skin and reducing pores. In addition, hyaluronic acid is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, so replenishment of its content makes the skin more elastic, which further contributes to the narrowing of the pores.
Fractional laser thermolysis is also well established as a means of removing expanded pores. Exposure to laser radiation not only evaporates dead skin cells, but also contributes to its regeneration, active production of collagen and elastin. Becoming more elastic, the skin compresses the pores, as if “pushing” them from the inside. As a result, the skin surface becomes smoother, the pores become narrower, the risk of inflammation is eliminated. Fractional laser acts at greater depth than microdermic percussion and surface peels – up to 1.5 mm, which provides a more radical effect of the procedure.
