Open Pores Treatment

Causes

High levels of sebum production, hair follicles and hereditary genetics are usually the main causes of open pores. Open pores can be a cause for concern for any individual, as large pores can be prone to accumulation of dirt which further causes acne and rashes. Open pores also clog your pores making it difficult for your skin to receive oxygen. Open pores can keep appearing larger and larger as you age. So it's better if you get treatment for it in its early stage itself. We, at Manya Aesthetics provide various treatments for the unclogging and closing of pores.

What to expect

Laser treatment usually doesn’t involve any painful procedures. It only requires a Laser to penetrate through your skin and increase Collagen production. The Laser is non-ablative. The Laser also works in making your skin look brighter, decreasing facial lines and minimizing the size of pores.

Usually, a chemical known as trichloracetic acid is used to destroy the topmost layer of the skin to make way for newer skin. After using a chemical peel you will be left with your skin looking a little red and scary. This only means the stimulation of collagen production is taking place and healthier looking skin will appear very soon.

Microneedling is a technique wherein the doctor uses a rotating brush-like device that pricks your skin with needles to facilitate a process known as wound healing. When wound healing takes place, more Collagen is produced in your skin. This collagen is useful in tightening your pores.
