Enlarged Pores/Rough Skin
Enlarged Pores / Rough Skin
The main factors that contribute to large pores are genetics and age. People who have naturally thick and oily skin tend to have larger pores. As people get older, sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to enlarge. The skin thickens, causing tiny cells to collect around the edge of the pores and make them look larger. Blackheads can also be a contributor to large pores. When the pore becomes clogged by dirt and bacteria, oil within the pore begins to accumulate, causing the pore’s diameter to expand. Anne Therese Aesthetic Medicine has a variety of treatments and skin care products to calm the skin.
