If you suffer from enlarged pores we have multiple treatment options that can help. Read on to find out more about enlarged pore treatments here at Derma Revive Skin Clinic.
As you may know, the purpose of pores is to allow sweat and sebum to reach the skin’s surface. The term ‘enlarged pores’ refer to simply more visible pores, as there is no standard size as such. You will most likely see enlarged pores around the centre of the face, the nose and cheeks due to the fact more sebaceous glands are found there, but they could be visible in any part of the face.
Complaints of enlarged pores tend to become more frequent as people age, and the fact that you have larger pores than others could be due to various reasons given below.
Enlarged pores can be a significant concern for patients, impacting not just the texture and appearance of the skin but also affecting self-esteem. These more visible pores, especially around the centre of the face, nose, and cheeks, can detract from a smooth complexion and may become more prominent with age.
The visibility of pores is often exacerbated by factors such as genetics, decreased skin elasticity, sun damage, and excess sebum production. As pores enlarge, they are more prone to clogging, leading to blackheads and acne, further complicating skin health. Understanding the underlying causes and seeking professional help can help in managing and improving the condition.
Recognising when to seek professional help for enlarged pores is key to preventing further skin complications. If over-the-counter products and home remedies have failed to reduce pore visibility, or if enlarged pores are accompanied by persistent acne, increased oiliness, or skin texture changes, it may be time to consult a specialist.
If the appearance of enlarged pores significantly affects your confidence or daily life, professional guidance give you an idea of what could work best for you. We aim to find effective solutions for your skin.

There are many reasons for having larger pores in one part of the face or body when compared to another. One possible reason is your genetics. Another may be the skin’s ageing process, as the skin’s elasticity decreases as we age, which may lead to the pores taking on a larger appearance. Sun damage and excess sebum production are other potential reasons. As with most skin conditions, multiple reasons for having enlarged pores may come into play.
When we talk about the ageing process with regard to various conditions, as is the same with enlarged pores, we generally mean the reduction of the number of vital proteins in the skin, namely collagen and elastin. These two proteins play a role in the formation of enlarged pores as they are directly involved in the structure of the skin. One other possible reason for enlarged pores to be visible is the effect hormonal changes may be having on your skin
We have treated many patients with enlarged pores here at Derma Revive Skin Clinic. Depending on your skin type and the extent of the enlarged pores, we will almost definitely have the right solution for you here. All it takes is us to have a look and have a brief conversation to discuss your options with you.
During your consultation at Derma Revive Skin Clinic, expect a detailed discussion about your skin concerns, medical history, and lifestyle factors that may affect your skin. Our specialists will examine your skin to assess the condition of your pores and recommend a customised treatment plan. This session is an opportunity to ask questions and understand the potential outcomes of your treatment.
Preparation for enlarged pore treatment involves several steps to ensure the best possible results:
While treatments can significantly reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, a permanent reduction cannot be guaranteed due to factors like genetics, ongoing skin ageing, and environmental influences. Regular maintenance treatments and a proper skincare routine can help manage pore size over a period of time.
Most treatments for enlarged pores at Derma Revive Skin Clinic are designed to be minimally invasive with little to no discomfort. Some patients may experience a mild tingling sensation or slight discomfort during certain procedures, but this is typically well-tolerated. Our specialists will do their best to make sure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.
The number of sessions required varies depending on the chosen treatment and the individual’s skin condition. Generally, patients may see noticeable improvements after just one session, but multiple sessions are often recommended for optimal results. Your specialist will provide a tailored treatment plan during your consultation.
The longevity of treatment results can vary, with many patients enjoying improvements for several months. To maintain results, follow-up treatments may be necessary, along with a consistent skincare routine and lifestyle adjustments to support skin health.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen, leading to more visible pores. Hormonal changes can also impact pore size. While treatments can improve appearance, ongoing ageing processes mean that maintenance treatments and skincare adjustments are essential for long-term management.
Yes, heavy or comedogenic makeup can contribute to clogged pores, making them appear larger. Opting for non-comedogenic, light, and breathable makeup products, along with thorough cleansing, can help minimise the impact of makeup on pore size.
