Treat Effectively Large Facial Pores
Long-Lasting Pore Refining with High-Tech Technology.
Our pores are actually very useful: Through them, for example, the fat produced in the sebaceous glands is transported to the surface of the skin. The skin remains soft and does not dry out. The sebum also acts as a protective layer against bacteria and pathogens.
However, if the canal of a pore is blocked, the sebum cannot escape anymore. As a result of this accumulation, the pore expands and becomes larger and larger over time.
Large pores are the second-biggest skin problem after pimples. They usually appear around the nose and on the cheeks. Expanded pores tend to clog and thus make the skin appear rough and impure. Dark blackheads and inflammations can arise and widen the pores again – a vicious circle that we can break with modern laser technology.

Treatment Options of Enlarged Pores
We have various devices available for treating large facial pores. Depending on the cause of the pore enlargement, the scope of treatment and the initial situation, we use, for example, LaseMD, PicoPlus or our CO2 laser. The number of sessions depends on the used technology and the treatment goal.
To find the best individual treatment, the therapy is always preceded by a comprehensive personal consultation. In addition, a 3D skin analysis can be carried out, which detects precisely scars, skin lesions, the number of pores and deposits and even reveals what your skin will look like in five years. This enables us to design tailor-made therapy concepts and, with a combination of gentle procedures, stimulate the skin regeneration. The skin structure is refined within a few sessions, and we achieve a significant improvement of the whole complexion. In this way, we can treat the enlarged pores and other skin diseases or disorders at the same time, such as acne or scars.
