When your skin produces too much oil, it mixes with dead skin in your pores. This makes your pores appear larger. If the oil gets trapped by the dead skin, it oxidises, creating blackheads.
There are a number of factors which can influence how large your pores appear. Your skin care routine may be wrong for your skin type, or it could be genetic. Either way, enlarged pores are a common problem for many — and, thankfully, it's treatable.
You'll need the right kind of products for your skin type, and stick to a good skin care routine. When you visit us for a consultation, we'll assess your skin and give you a detailed skin care plan, with recommended products that will work best for you.
But it's best to kick off your new skin care routine with a fresh face. We offer skin peels which (combined with LED blue light therapy) cleanse and tighten your pores.
We also use lasers to improve the texture and size of your pores. Book a free consultation, and we'll create the perfect plan for you.
Cleanse your skin regularly and make sure you remove all make-up at the end of the day. Toners help to tighten the skin, and exfoliating will remove dead skin cells.
Make sure you eat a balanced diet of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Drink plenty of water, and exercise regularly to increase the blood flow to all parts of your body — including your skin.
You'll experience a slight tingling or warm sensation when we treat you with a chemical peel. But, before we perform any treatment, we'll assess your skin and determine how sensitive it is. We can test a patch to make sure it won't cause you discomfort, first.
Laser treatments help produce collagen and enable the skin to rejuvenate and repair. The skin layers will regenerate, leaving you with even-toned skin and tightened pores.
From the moment you walk into our clinic in Kew, you're in safe hands. We use medical-grade technology, and we're continually researching and attending conferences to maintain a level of expert knowledge.
Our clinicians are accredited, passionate, and ethical. We won't administer any treatments without conducting an initial free consultation. Once we know all about your skin and medical history, we'll formulate a treatment plan.
Check out what our chemical peels and laser treatments have done for our clients.
I'm a tradie, and I work around a lot of dust. I have open pores which create a lot of irritation and redness, and I also have dermatitis.
VDG really reduced this with the Fraxel laser and peels, and even got rid of the lines around my cheeks which I hated. Now my skin's glowing, and isn't itchy at all. I wish I found you guys earlier.
I always leave feeling fresh-faced and have had so many compliments on my skin since going there! I am a mum of a busy toddler, I work full time, and life never stops! I was looking way past my age when I first went to see the team at VDG, and now, my skin remains fresh and youthful!
I am so happy I came across Vic Dermal Group — they are literally skin angels. I have just started my pre-wedding skin treatments, and could not be happier with the results. The service is amazing, and the team is so knowledgeable! I feel completely comfortable to rock a bare face daily!
Fantastic staff, comfortable atmosphere, and quality service. I am such a novice when it comes to looking after my skin, and most places can make you feel like an idiot for not knowing the right language — not here! The staff has exceptional communication. The customer service alone is enough to keep me coming back — Derya and the team raises the bar on patient care.
