Enlarged Pores Treatments

Minimise the appearance of open and large pores

What is Enlarged Pores?

Enlarged pores manifest as discernible openings on the skin's surface, presenting a size larger than typical, often reminiscent of diminutive craters or pits. This can result in an uneven or bumpy texture when observed closely.

What causes Enlarged Pores?

Enlarged pores could occur due to a variety of factors. Below are some of the common causes:

Sun Exposure

Prolonged exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage to the skin, resulting in the loss of collagen and elastin fibres, causing enlarged pores.

Large Hair Follicles

Hair follicles and pores are closely related structures in the skin. Each hair follicle has a corresponding pore, which is the opening through where the hair shaft emerges from the skin's surface. The size of hair follicles can influence the appearance of pores.


As people age, the skin loses elasticity, and the collagen and elastin fibres that support the skin break down. This natural ageing process can result in enlarged pores. Pores may become more noticeable as the skin's texture changes.

Excessive Sebum

Excessive oil production in the sebaceous glands can cause the accumulation of oil, dirt, and bacteria inside the pores, causing it to appear enlarged.


Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to having larger pores. If your family members have naturally larger pores, you may be more likely to have them as well, even without other contributing factors.

Reduce the Appearance of Pores and Texture

with Glowwis Enlarged Pore Treatment Options

At Glowwis, our curated treatments are designed to prioritise the restructuring of the skin, resulting in a more tightened and refined complexion. These treatments aim to eliminate any blockages that could be contributing to enlarged pores.

Pico Laser

A non-surgical, non-invasive solution for various skin concerns, including enlarged pores. Pico Laser works by delivering ultra-short pulses of energy in picoseconds (trillionths of a second) to specific areas of the skin. The rapid and precise energy pulses of Pico Laser can encourage the turnover of skin cells, leading to improvement in skin texture. The treatment also aids in stimulating collagen production to repair and restructure the skin.

Q Switch Laser

Q Switch Laser produces short pulses of high-energy light that help to target specific pigments in the skin, making them effective for various dermatological concerns. While it's mainly for treating pigmentation issues, it aids in improving uneven pigmentation and skin texture, which contributes to a smoother complexion.

Gold Plated Micro Needle RF

Gold Plated Micro Needle RF (Radiofrequency) provides a non-surgical approach to treat enlarged pores with the use of micro-needling and radiofrequency energy. The use of micro-needles in the treatment helps to create tiny, micro-holes in the skin's surface. Next, the radiofrequency energy is delivered into the skin through the micro-needles which aids in stimulating the skin's healing response. This aids in the production of collagen and elastin fibres, which are crucial in treating enlarged pores.

Collagen skin boosters

Collagen skin boosters provide an effective solution for regenerating the skin's fibres, which tend to deplete over time. At Glowwis, our range of collagen skin boosters is suitable to address your pore concerns as it assists in repairing damaged skin cells and stimulates collagen production, which helps your skin achieve a smooth appearance.

Hyaluronic Acid skin boosters

By providing the skin with sufficient hydration, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) aids in smoothening the skin’s texture. When applied topically or injected as a skin booster, it can help plump up the skin and fill in fine lines and wrinkles. This plumping effect can make pores appear smaller and less noticeable. Well-hydrated skin tends to be smoother and more supple, reducing the appearance of unevenness associated with enlarged pores.


Mesobotox injections can have a smoothing effect on the skin. While traditional Botox treatments are aimed at relaxing muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, Mesobotox is used in a more diluted form and is injected superficially. This can result in a subtle relaxation of the tiny muscles in the skin, leading to a smoother complexion and potentially making pores less noticeable.


Glowwis has a range of medical-grade facials and Dr. Sam will advise the most suitable medi-facial that helps in refining the skin’s texture. These facials provide gentle exfoliation using alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) to remove blackheads and whiteheads and clear clogged pores.

    General Habits to prevent Enlarged Pores

    Regular Cleansing

    Wash your face two times daily (in the morning and evening) using a mild, non-comedogenic cleanser to eliminate dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin.


    Incorporate regular exfoliation into your skincare routine 2-3 times a week to remove dead skin cells that can contribute to clogged pores and enlarged pores. Opt for products with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs).

    Sun Protection

    Make sure to apply sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 to shield your skin from harsh UV rays. Sun exposure can weaken collagen and elastin fibres, which is one of the main contributors to enlarged pores.

    Balanced Diet

    Maintain a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. This can help support skin health and prevent excessive oil production.


    Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Proper hydration helps maintain skin elasticity and can contribute to a healthier complexion.

    Non-comedogenic Products

    Use non-comedogenic skincare and makeup products. These are formulated to not clog pores and can help prevent pore enlargement.

    How to Treat Enlarged Pores

    Addressing enlarged pores presents a challenge, yet it is a task that can be effectively navigated. The process entails a combination of diligent skincare practices and, in certain instances, expert professional interventions. Dr. Sam advises a set of effective strategies and approaches aimed at minimising the appearance of enlarged pores:



    Build a skincare routine that is simple yet effective. Focus on ingredients that effectively target the enlarged pores such as Niacinamide, Salicylic Acid (BHA), Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), and topical retinoids. Adding sun protection to your skincare is important to prevent damage from UV rays.



    Different topical and oral treatments like topical and oral retinoids used in both dermatology and aesthetic procedures work to decrease sebum production. However, dryness and irritation can be common side effects.


    Professional Treatment

    A professional can provide personalised recommendations and may suggest prescription-strength treatments, like topical retinoids or other medications, based on your specific skin type and concerns.
