Skin type that is oily tends to have larger pores. Tiny cells combine with the excess sebum and collect around the inside edge of the pores and resulting in thickness.
When the pore becomes clogged by this thicken built up, it causes the pore’s diameter to expand in a cone shape (large opening on the surface of the skin). Pores do not contain muscle structure and can not open and close.
The first step in treating enlarged pores is to understand what causes them. Pores are small openings in the skin that allow for the release of oils and other substances. They are controlled by the sebaceous glands, which produce sebum, an oily substance that helps to keep the layer of the skin moisturized. When these glands produce too much sebum, it can cause the pores to become clogged, leading to the formation of blackheads and whiteheads.
Additionally, as we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elasticity, which can also cause our pore size to appear larger. There are several different laser treatment options available for treating enlarged pores.
