If you’ve experienced the horror of enlarged pores in the magnifying mirror, know this: you can shrink those pores with IPL. You can’t wish your enlarged pores away, but luckily you can gradually shrink and minimise them. Achieve this with a mixture of effective cleansing, exfoliating and the wonder of IPL.
Often enlarged pores are genetic. An oily skin doesn’t help either. Usually, overactive sebaceous glands which cause pores to expand are the culprits. Also, hormonal changes, poor skin hygiene, too much sun, extreme climates and the ageing process influence pore size.
all regard enlarged pores as cosmetically undesirable. Not only that, but they’ll
be more prone to getting clogged with oil and dirt, increasing the chance of break-outs.
Steps to take include prudent use of skincare products adapted to your skin type. That certainly will help to reduce oil production and help control pore size. Do take note that by using cosmetics to camouflage large pores, the problem actually might eventually get worse.
The wonder of IPL
is recognised as an effective treatment to stimulate cell renewal and collagen
production in the skin. So, to shrink those pores with IPL, it works thus: without
harming the skin’s surface layers, light pulses are focused on the skin cell
layers responsible for cell renewal. These intense light pulses effectively have
a rejuvenation effect by penetrating deep into the skin, killing bacteria and
stimulating collagen production. The result is improved skin tone, reduced oil
production and an eventual reduction in the pore size.
multiple treatments are necessary. But the good news is that you will notice
results within a week or two after the first treatment.
addition, IPL also corrects visible skin imperfections and improves skin tone. So,
it’s a double-whammy.
