Oily skin causes a lot of trouble, because a person is constantly faced with the problem of blackheads and acne, which appear in fairly large quantities on the forehead, nose and chin. Various masks, peeling, and mechanical facial cleansing help get rid of such an unaesthetic “decoration” on the face. However, all of the listed methods and procedures do not give the desired effect if the pores are not opened before using them.

Why do the pores on the face expand? Causes

It is not always possible to give a definite answer to the question of why this problem arose. Knowing the reasons for their formation in many cases helps to correctly understand how to get rid of enlarged pores on the face.

The most common causes of enlarged pores on the face and body:

  • genetic predisposition;
  • combination and oily skin types;
  • hormonal disorders;
  • metabolic disease;
  • diseases or dysfunction of the digestive system;
  • decreased immunity;
  • excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation, sunburn and dehydration;
  • neglect of the procedure for cleansing the skin of impurities and dead cells or its improper implementation;

How to get rid of enlarged pores on the face: treatment methods.

Before resorting to cosmetic procedures, it is necessary to take measures to eliminate contributing factors - limit the intake of foods high in carbohydrates and animal fats, hot seasonings, and spices.

It is necessary to stop drinking alcoholic beverages, regulate the correct work and rest schedule, normalize the function of the digestive tract, limit exposure to direct sunlight, choose the right quality cosmetics, etc.

In modern cosmetology, there are a number of procedures that can narrow enlarged pores. Among them:


Enlarged pores on the face can be eliminated using a chemical peeling procedure, thanks to which all irregularities on its surface are smoothed out, including fine wrinkles, and the facial skin looks renewed. During this procedure, the keratinized layer of cells is removed, which stimulates skin regeneration processes, resulting in increased elasticity.

Based on the mechanism of action, peelings can be divided into 3 groups:

  • Mechanical – exposure to preparations (scrubs, gels, creams) containing granules or microcrystals;
  • Hardware - the effect is carried out with ultrasound or laser, diamond dermabrasion;
  • Chemical - exposure is carried out with acid-based chemicals.

Depending on the depth and intensity of the impact, there are:

  • Exfoliation is the lightest, most superficial, exfoliating type of peeling;
  • Epidermolysis – superficial peeling;
  • Medium peeling;
  • Deep peeling.

Little secrets

Regardless of the cause and method of treatment at home, the skin of the face should always receive proper attention and care. Therefore, I will share with you some small tricks that will help you solve the problem faster:

  • forget about hot water - under its influence, the pores expand even more, so wash your face with warm or even cool water; if you like a bath or sauna, use a tonic and a tightening mask after the procedures;
  • do not carry out procedures one after another - let each product act and penetrate the skin;
  • To apply makeup, use light foundations with reflective particles; they will visually even out the skin and give it a healthy glow.


Ultrasonic peeling (or ultrasonic facial cleansing)

The essence of the procedure is to remove a layer of dead cells under the influence of high-frequency ultrasonic waves. Ultrasound is one of the most modern and painless ways to cleanse the skin of the face, neck, back, and décolleté.

Under the influence of ultrasound, a contact gel applied to the skin causes the breakdown of molecular bonds and exfoliation of epidermal cells. After ultrasonic facial peeling, pores are cleaned and reduced, fine wrinkles disappear, and skin color and texture are evened out.

The required type of peeling is selected by the doctor depending on the individual characteristics and severity of the problem.

Laser facial peeling is a modern and effective procedure for laser skin cleansing and rejuvenation.

As a rule, laser is used when alternative methods (creams, masks, hardware and chemical peels) do not bring the desired effect.

Laser skin cleansing is recommended for use after 30 years, when the skin has already experienced age-related changes.

Our clinic presents “cold” and “hot” FT laser peeling techniques, which are distinguished by their thermal effect on the skin. With “hot” peeling, cleansing occurs using a hot laser, heating the top layer and stimulating rejuvenation processes. If with hot radiation the result is observed gradually, then “cold” radiation gives an instant effect. The smoothness and beauty of the skin will be noticeable immediately after the first session.

Microdermabrasion , which tightens pores, eliminates fine wrinkles and cleanses the skin of dead skin cells. When performing microdermabrasion, a special scrub with the addition of solid microparticles is used. This procedure, provided that it is carried out by a professional cosmetologist, stimulates collagen production. A course of two to three procedures is considered optimal.

In addition to cleansing procedures, it is recommended to use techniques that help moisturize, nourish the skin and narrow pores, therefore the treatment of enlarged pores on the face is combined with injection techniques:

  • Plasmolifting;
  • Mesotherapy;
  • Biorevitalization;
  • Bioreparation.

Methods and means of skin care, treatment methods, frequency and number of procedures are selected by cosmetologists individually, depending on the severity of the process.
