Enlarged Pore Treatments in Elgin

Dundee Does: Enlarged Pore Treatments

Bigger isn’t always better, especially when it comes to your beauty. That’s why Dundee Dermatology offers the most in-depth enlarged pore treatments in Elgin. 

To see how Dundee does it, let’s dive into how enlarged pores form, and the solutions we offer!

Why Pores Get Bigger


In this case, you should think of your pores as little pockets in your skin. Sebum is natural oil that fills those pockets to develop a healthy barrier against debris. If your body produces more sebum than it needs, your skin has more oil in those pockets than it needs! While thorough cleaning can help manage this, constant pressure stretches the skin and makes your pores larger.


Sebum needs a clear pathway to travel up the pore and onto the skin’s surface. However, dead skin cells often get mixed in and create blockage. This traffic jam of sebum and dead skin cells causes your pores to naturally get larger to avoid total gridlock. This makes pores appear larger and causes blemishes like blackheads.


As we age, our skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin. These are essential proteins that maintain the youth and function of your skin. With less collagen and elastin, the skin around your pores loosen and appear larger, so the pores appear more prominent. 



To fully understand this, picture a tablecloth. Your underlying tissue and facial muscles are the table, and your skin is the tablecloth. If the table underneath is rough or too small, the tablecloth will develop holes and start to sag over time. We use the following treatments to ensure your table is just the right size and smoothness to prevent holes and wrinkles!

How We Shrink Pores

RF Microneedling

Our most advanced enlarged pore treatment in Elgin is Exion. This treatment combines the power of radio frequencies, ultrasound, and microneedling to create tiny, microwounds in the skin. These controlled injuries trigger your body’s natural healing response to stimulate collagen and elastin production. As mentioned earlier, increased collagen and elastin lead to tighter, firmer skin which helps pores appear smaller.

This treatment typically takes less than an hour, and doesn’t require any recovery time! Convenient sessions, lasting results, and versatile options are why we’re proud to help patients experience Exion at Dundee Dermatology! Learn more about this exciting treatment with our related reading.

Introducing Exion



To give your skin the hydration it needs to shrink those pores, we trust Skinvive! This powerful filler is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based formula that helps restore depleted HA levels that naturally happen over time. Dehydrated skin can look dull and rough, with pores appearing more prominent. By injecting Skinvive, this enlarged pore treatment in Elgin plumps the skin from within to minimize the appearance of pores, and improve skin laxity!

Fractional Lasers

Our final favorite enlarged pore treatment in Elgin uses the power of fractional lasers. Ultraclear uses fractional lasers to deliver a concentrated beam of light targeting specific areas of the skin. These lasers create microscopic injuries to trigger the body’s natural healing response similar to microneedling. This non-invasive option leads to improved collagen, elastin, and overall skin health!
