Enlarged Pores

Everyone has pores, which are tiny openings on the outer layer of the skin where the body’s natural oil (sebum) is released to the surface. While most pores can hardly be seen, sometimes they appear larger, especially on the face.

Causes of Enlarged Pores

Enlarged pores, also known as dilated pores, are a common dermatological concern that affect individuals of all ages and skin types. These minuscule openings in the skin’s surface allow sebum (natural skin oil) and sweat to escape. While pores are a natural part of the skin’s anatomy, many factors lead to their dilation, resulting in a more noticeable and uneven texture. Understanding the underlying causes of enlarged pores is essential in developing effective skincare routines and treatments to achieve a smoother, refined complexion.

Laser Skin Resurfacing - Ablative

Laser Skin Resurfacing – Ablative is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure that utilizes laser technology to improve skin texture and tone. By precisely removing outer layers of damaged skin, this treatment stimulates collagen production, resulting in a smoother, more youthful complexion. It effectively targets a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sun damage, providing clients with a refreshed and revitalized appearance.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling is an effective treatment for fine lines, skin tightening and facial rejuvenation. Microneedling with radiofrequency specifically uses radiofrequency energy to gently heat the deeper layer of skin. Then as the skin grows back with new collagen and elastin, the surface will naturally thicken and tighten. Treatment is minimally invasive and is considered safe and effective for all skin types.

SkinPen® Microneedling

SkinPen® is a state-of-the-art, FDA-approved precision microneedling device. It is used by leading healthcare providers to rejuvenate from the inside out for younger looking skin.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are composed of acids that exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate new skin cells to come to the surface, making your skin appear healthier and more youthful.

There are a variety of chemical peels varying in strength that target specific issues. Your aesthetician will choose which peel is best for your skin based on your skin type and goals.


DermaPeel is our signature aesthetic treatment, which involves a combination of two or more exfoliations, ranging from DermaSweep, Dermaplaning and chemicals peels. A DermaPeel can be tailored for any skin type and sensitivity. Regular treatments improve overall texture and tone leaving the skin smoother and brighter.


Using exfoliants, water jets and vacuum-like suction to open pores, HydraFacial provides deep cleansing while extracting impurities and dead skin cells. Only HydraFacial devices use Vortex Fusion technology to refresh any skin type gently and thoroughly. The treatment works by:

  • Deeply cleansing and exfoliating with a gentle peel to uncover a new layer of skin.
  • Extracting impurities from pores with painless gentle suction.
  • Saturating the skin’s surface with intense moisturizers and nourishing, personalized ingredients.

It is particularly helpful for those with clogged pores, but also creates a healthy glow for those with dry skin, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and pigmentation.
