It is for this reason that we invest in skin creams, lotions, exfoliators, and laser procedures to get it. Unfortunately, however, many of us are unable to achieve the smooth textured skin we desire because of the presence of overly large pores. Pores are the openings on the surface of our skin that allow for the secretion of the sweat and oil that our bodies produce.

While large pores are often associated with genetics and the type of skin we have (those with oily skin often have larger pores), they can also be a result of aging. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity, and your body produces less collagen, which can result in the appearance of larger pores. And when you have enlarged pores, it is easier for dirt and other debris to get into them, creating further skin imperfections. While there are many treatments available to address pore size, microneedling stands out as a successful way to improve pore size, skin texture, and discoloration, as well as, taking care of the appearance of those fine lines you try to hide.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses tiny needles to create “micro” wounds in the skin that break the blood vessels. In reaction to these wounds, your body produces new collagen and fresh cells to repair the injured skin. From here, the newly formed cells replace the damaged ones, resulting in a more beautiful complexion and smaller, less noticeable pores.

The Collagen P.I.N.

The Collagen P.I.N. microneedling treatment uses more needles—36 to be exact—than many other microneedling systems. This allows for greater rejuvenation and improvement of a wide range of skin imperfections. Treatments with this system are fast, without side effects, and suitable for all skin types. Optimal pore reduction results occur with a series of four to six treatments and can be applied to both the face and body.

Combine Procedures for Further Rejuvenation

To further enhance your complexion, the Collagen P.I.N. procedure can be combined with vitamin-infused facials and chemical peels. By combining facial procedures and introducing additional vitamins and antioxidants to your skin during the healing process, your skin will not only heal faster, but it will also allow for more collagen production. This combination will have you looking younger, refreshed, and revitalized.

Forget trying to find ways to hide your pores, and start enjoying your beautiful complexion!
