Tightening Large Pores in Aging Skin
Have you ever looked in the mirror and had a hard time recognizing the face in front of you? While there’s so much fuss made about wrinkles and age spots, they’re far from the only sign of aging that can have us mistaking our reflection for that of a stranger. As we age, our pores also have the tendency to play a less-than-friendly joke on us, getting larger, more prominent, and more difficult to disguise with makeup. While the tricks we used when we were younger may seem to have little effect on our pores, there’s still hope that a smoother, poreless complexion is in your future.
There are two major reasons why our pores start to look bigger as we age: first, our body produces less collagen and elastin as we age, which can loosen the skin’s surface and make pores appear enlarged, and second, our skin loses moisture, which can increase the amount of dead skin cells that are sloughing off and congesting our complexions. While many Manhattan businesses may claim that extraction facials are the key to giving you the youthful glow of a 20-something once again, meddling aggressively with your skin can actually make you pores look larger. Depending on your skin type, or if they’re performed improperly, extraction facials can push dirt and bacteria deeper into your skin, turning what was once a collection of enlarged pores into a major breakout.
If enlarged pores are a concern for you, it’s time to take action. There are a number of natural, soothing ways to make your pores appear smaller and less congested without putting yourself through the potentially damaging process of a peel or extraction facial. At Flawless Skin Solutions’ New York City location, our Oxygen Facial tightens pores the natural way — by healing it with 98% pure hyperbaric oxygen. This treatment not only decongests your complexion, but hydrates skin and promotes the production of collagen, which can help tighten your pores naturally and make your skin appear more radiant and youthful. If you prefer a treatment you can do in the privacy of your own home, Flawless’ Dorothy Mask contains a number of pore-tightening and antibacterial agents, like hyaluronic acid, olive, and gingko biloba extract, all of which can shrink the appearance of pores while banishing fine lines and wrinkles.
Enlarged pores don’t have to determine the future of your skin; Flawless‘ healing treatments can have you looking gorgeous again in no time.
