There is simply no overstating the benefits of having smooth, healthy skin. A clear complexion and radiant glow makes everyone look healthier, more relaxed, and more confident at any age. The incredible thing is that we all have beautiful, fresh, youthful skin just waiting to be revealed, and that smoother skin, free of enlarged pores and blackheads, is within your reach.
How do Pores Become Enlarged?
Enlarged pores are one of the top skin complaints of both men and women, who want a smoother, more airbrushed look. The main cause of enlarged pores is excessive oil production in the skin; when your sebaceous glands produce a lot of oil, the pores naturally become larger to accommodate it. There are several factors that affect oil production in the skin, and therefore pore size:
- Climate and weather. Living in a hot and humid climate makes you sweat more, therefore making the skin oilier and making the pores larger.
- Genetics. If your family has naturally oily skin, you are more prone to it yourself.
- Gender. Men usually have more facial oil and larger pores than women.
- Age. As the skin ages, it loses elasticity, and the pores don't contract and shrink as much as they did when we were younger.
How does Microdermabrasion Treat Enlarged Pores?
reduces pore size in two primary ways:
- It unclogs pores. By removing excess oil, dead skin cells, and other particles from the skin, microdermabrasion empties out pores, so they are free to naturally shrink and contract after treatment.
- It reduces excess oil. Removing excess oil helps keep your pores clear and prevent them from getting larger.
Microdermabrasion also makes your other skin care products more effective, so if you use a topical ointment or toner to reduce pore size, it will work better after the treatment than it did before.
Other Benefits of Microdermabrasion
By exposing a new, fresh layer of skin, microdermabrasion also helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, acne scars and imperfections, and can even reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also usually as effective, safer, and more affordable than laser treatments or chemical peels. Having naturally smoother, healthier skin not only makes you look more attractive and feel more confident, but it can also save time in your daily skincare or makeup routine, allowing you to show off your naturally glowing skin.
What to Expect from a Microdermabrasion Treatment
Microdermabrasion is not ideal for all skin types and conditions, so it is important to book a consultation
with a professional to discuss your skin care needs and options. Over-the-counter microdermabrasion products can be very harsh, and may not give you the results you are looking for, so a professional consultation is the best way to protect your skin and get the best results.
Before your treatment, it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure. You may also need to take special care of your skin and use recommended skincare products to improve your results.
After treatment, your skin may be especially sensitive, red, or flaky; these are all signs that the treatment is working as intended, but you should take special care of your skin during this time. Avoid swimming or exercise for 24 hours afterwards, and stay out of the sun.
You should also continue to protect your skin with a gentle regimen over the long-term, for more lasting results. Always protect your skin with a high quality SPF product. You may also get a recommendation for the best kinds of products and skincare habits to keep your pores small, and skin smooth and youthful, for as long as possible.
