Large or enlarged pores are tiny depressions in the facial skin. These depressions are mainly the openings to the ducts that carry oil and sweat from their respective glands.
Large skin pores are a cosmetic condition that can alter your facial appearance. People usually opt for home remedies or over-the-counter topical creams to treat this condition. But these options cannot successfully treat all types of large pores. A viable option in this regard is to seek clinical treatment.
At Euromed Clinic, we use different methods to treat these pores effectively.

Who is a Good Candidate for Large Pores Treatment?
Anybody troubled by enlarged pores and unpleasant skin surfaces can benefit from large pores treatment. The ideal candidate for this treatment is someone who:
- Is above 20 years of age
- Has thick and smooth skin
- Does not have active skin breakout – a condition characterized by blemishes and sometimes inflamed bumps on the skin
- Has realistic expectations from the treatment.
In the pre-procedure meeting, the dermatologist will guide candidates to prepare themselves for the treatment. Some general instructions are as follows:
- Drink plenty of water every day for a week before the treatment.
- Do not expose your skin to the sun for a few days.
- Use sunshade or sunscreen.
- Take the prescribed medication regularly.
Large skin pores can be treated through several techniques, some of which are listed as follows:
Chemical peels are highly beneficial for people with large skin pores. They work by peeling off the topmost damaged skin layer. These peels are available in various concentrations and intensities.
Chemical peels clear the pores, expel the zits, battle skin inflammation, and enhance skin tone. These peels also help reduce the appearance of pores.
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure to treat large skin pores. This procedure involves using a handheld device to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin and remove dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria from the pores. It also stimulates skin healing and enhances collagen production.
IPL Photo Facial
IPL Photo Facial treatment uses intense light pulses to kill bacteria and stimulate collagen production. This helps rejuvenate the skin by reducing oil production, improving skin tone, and eventually reducing the size of the pores.
Laser resurfacing is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the size of large pores. This method uses PICO laser technology to remove dead skin cells, minimize the pores, and improve collagen and skin cell regeneration.
Some benefits of large skin pores treatment are mentioned below:
- Most treatment techniques have little to no downtime.
- Each method has a short recovery time.
- The skin becomes younger and healthier after the treatment.
- These procedures enhance the skin’s tone and texture.
