Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Help Shrink Large Facial Pores?
The size of your pores is largely genetic. But noticeable pores can be distracting and appear more prominent when clogged. Over-the-counter treatments can't do much to address their appearance, but state-of-the-art laser skin resurfacing treatments can give you more radiant skin with less visible pores.
At Devine Aesthetic Solutions, Dr. Jeanine Thomas uses the Harmony XL PRO device for laser skin resurfacing. She expertly treats patients near Arlington, Fort Worth, Midlothian, and Euless, TX.
Keep reading to find out how laser skin resurfacing works and how it can help reduce the appearance of large pores.
How does laser skin resurfacing work?
Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical treatment that uses pulsating beams of light to deliberately create micro-injuries in the skin and remove damaged skin cells on the surface.
It may sound a bit intimidating, but the Harmony XL PRO laser is a gentle treatment that stimulates the skin's healing response and reveals healthy new layers of skin that may have been obscured by dry, peeling, or otherwise damaged skin cells.
Can laser skin resurfacing help shrink my pores?
It's important to note that pore size is determined by genetics, and no treatment can get rid of them. However, laser skin resurfacing treatment can help tighten and shrink pores, making them far less noticeable.
The Harmony XL PRO is a non-ablative laser used by Dr. Thomas at Devine Aesthetic Solutions. This device targets deeper layers of skin without causing noticeable damage to the layers on top. It helps improve the skin from the inside out.
When it comes to shrinking pores, Dr. Thomas will first ensure they're clean before using the laser. As your skin heals, your pores will tighten and appear smaller. They're likely to be less noticeable and less distracting in the days and weeks after laser skin resurfacing treatment.
What are some other benefits of laser skin resurfacing treatment?
Laser skin resurfacing with the Harmony XL PRO has many uses in addition to improving pore size. This procedure is also used to:
Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
Diminish skin discoloration (such as age, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation)
Remove dead and damaged skin cells
Brighten the complexion
Even out rough skin texture
Reduce the appearance of visible blood vessels
The results are long-lasting and designed to give you a brighter, more youthful complexion.
It often takes 2 – 3 weeks to see the full results of treatment. Depending on what you're trying to treat, you may need multiple laser skin resurfacing treatments with Dr. Thomas at Devine Aesthetic Solutions. These will typically be spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart.
While other laser solutions may have more drastic effects, the Harmony XL PRO allows you to control your transformation with less healing time than deeper laser treatments.
