Enlarged pores are a common concern among many individuals. They can occur due to various factors, including genetics, age, oily skin, and prolonged sun exposure. Enlarged pores can make the skin appear dull, uneven, and aged, which can affect an individual’s confidence and self-esteem.
Fortunately, there are various treatment options available at Dr. KW Chan that can help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and improve the overall look and feel of the skin.
Options for Enlarged Pores
This non-invasive treatment involves using a laser to heat the skin’s underlying tissue, stimulating collagen production and tightening the pores. Laser therapy can also help reduce oil production, which can contribute to the appearance of enlarged pores. At Dr. KW Chan, we offer a range of laser therapies including CO2 Laser Pico laser and long pulsed laser.
Chemical peels are another effective treatment option for enlarged pores. This treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, as well as improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. At Dr. KW Chan , we offer a range of chemical peels, including glycolic acid, salicylic acid.
Hydrafacial is a non-invasive facial treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin. Suitable for all skin types, it addresses various skin concerns, providing immediate and long-lasting results without downtime. The multi-step process includes cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration, resulting in smoother, more radiant skin.
Hyperpigmentation is a common condition that occurs when the skin produces excess melanin, resulting in dark patches on the skin. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including sun exposure, hormonal changes, and skin injuries. Our clinic offers a range of treatments to help address hyperpigmentation, including chemical peels, laser therapy, and topical treatments such as hydroquinone, retinoids and oral lightening medications.
Melasma is a specific type of hyperpigmentation that is often triggered by hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy or with the use of certain medications. Melasma can be particularly challenging to treat, but our clinic has experience in managing this condition with a variety of treatments, including topical lightening agents, chemical peels, laser therapy and oral lightening medications
In addition to these specific conditions, our clinic also offers treatments for more general concerns with uneven skin tone and texture.
