Microneedling for Treating Enlarged Pores
One of the biggest contributing factors to enlarged pores is sluggish cellular turnover. This process is responsible for helping us shed our top dermal layer so that we’re constantly revealing new skin. As we get older, this process slows down, resulting in the accumulation of environmental damage, uneven skin texture, and even enlarged pores. That’s why, in order to treat enlarged pores, it’s important to address the sluggish cellular turnover that’s causing it in the first place.
That’s where microneedling with the Aqua Gold fine touch comes in. A patented gold-plated hair-fine needle system to painlessly deliver custom solutions into the skin at the ideal 600-micron depth. This procedure is carried out using a small handheld device, which contains several fine-tipped needlepoints. The device causes the needle to quickly puncture the skin, creating tiny channels down to the deepest dermal layer. The entire procedure kickstarts the body’s wound-healing processes, resulting in increased collagen levels and boosted cellular turnover. Additionally, Botox applied into the dermis (not the muscle) helps shrink pore openings. This is the only recognized treatment that has an actual physical effect on pore size.
