      What are Open Pores?

      Open pores, often referred to as enlarged pores, are a common dermatological concern characterised by visible, dilated openings on the skin’s surface. These pores are more prominent and conspicuous, typically seen on the face, particularly in the T-zone area (forehead, nose, and chin), although they can appear on other parts of the body as well. Pores are the tiny openings of hair follicles and sweat glands on the skin’s surface. When these pores become larger than normal, they can trap dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, resulting in a more noticeable appearance and a potential increase in skin issues such as acne and blackheads.

      Causes of Open Pores

      Genetics: One’s genetic predisposition can play a significant role in determining pore size. If your parents have large pores, you may be more likely to have them as well.
      Excessive Sebum Production: Overactive sebaceous (oil) glands can lead to oily skin, which can stretch and enlarge pores over time.
      Ageing: As we age, the skin’s natural collagen and elastin levels decline, leading to reduced skin elasticity and the appearance of larger pores.
      Sun Damage: Prolonged sun exposure can break down collagen and elastin in the skin, causing it to lose its natural structure and firmness, which can result in the enlargement of pores. Hormones can play a role in oil production and hence they can stimulate sebaceous glands leading to excessive sebum production which leads to different skin types and hence enlarged pores.
      Poor Skin Care: Neglecting to cleanse the skin properly or using harsh, pore-clogging products can contribute to the development of open pores.

      How to spot them: Identifying open pores is relatively straightforward. They appear as small, circular or oval depressions on the skin’s surface, often accompanied by a noticeable texture difference compared to the surrounding skin. Open pores are most commonly observed on the nose, cheeks, and forehead and can be seen more clearly in well-lit conditions.

      Treatment for Open Pores at Dr. Haror's Wellness

      Topical Treatments: Dr. Haror’s Wellness offers a range of specialised topical treatments that can help minimise the appearance of open pores. These may include retinoids or salicylic acid-based products, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, and other pore-refining products which can aid in exfoliating the skin, unclogging pores, and minimizing the pores.
      Chemical Peels: Chemical peels administered by trained professionals at Dr. Haror’s Wellness can help improve skin texture and reduce the size of open pores. These peels exfoliate the skin’s top layer, stimulating collagen production and encouraging skin renewal.
      Laser Therapy: Advanced laser treatments can target enlarged pores and stimulate collagen production for improved skin texture. Dr. Haror’s Wellness offers state-of-the-art laser therapies to address open pores and other skin concerns.
      Microneedling: Microneedling procedures can help tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of open pores. The tiny needles create micro-injuries, stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture.
      Boosters: Hydration boosters help in hydrating skin, rejuvenating cells and thus improving the overall texture by minimizing pore size.

      At Dr. Haror’s Wellness, we suggest the most suitable treatment based on one’s skin concern and skin type.
