Pore Refining Laser

Why do large pores occur?

One of the hardest-to-treat skin care problems is enlarged pores, which is also one of the most distressing skin problems that many women face. While it does not pose a serious health condition, visible pores often make the skin look unhealthy and unhygienic.

Facial pores become enlarged when the skin produces too much oil and combines with the dead skin and other debris in the pores. Genetics, sun damage and the natural ageing process can also contribute to enlarged pores.

Facial areas commonly found with large pores

Large pores are commonly found on two areas on the face – cheek as well as nose areas. For some people, the problem may occur on the forehead and chin.

What is Pore Refining Laser?

Pore Refining Laser is able to minimise large pores with the use of laser energy to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin to activate collagen growth to promote vibrant and healthy skin. The new collagen will then tighten and plump up the skin, resulting in visible reduction in the size of the pores.

Dr Heng has specially designed this laser treatment to custom tailor your personal treatment and laser setting to your specific needs and expectations for more effective pore refining. This ensures an improvement in skin texture and enhancement in overall skin rejuvenation, making your skin more youthful and refreshed.

What can you expect from our Pore Refining Laser treatment?

Before Treatment

During this session, we will assess your skin type, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if the Pore Refining Laser treatment is suitable for you. On the day of the treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and a topical anaesthetic may be applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

During Treatment

The Pore Refining Laser will be carefully calibrated to address your specific skin concerns. The laser is then applied to the targeted areas, tightening and minimising your skin pores while  stimulating collagen production. 

After Treatment

After the procedure, a soothing ointment will be applied to your skin to aid in the healing process. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery. 

Ongoing monitoring

Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor your skin’s progress. This proactive approach allows us to make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, ensuring that you are on track to achieve your desired outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If you have the following conditions or concerns, you will be able to benefit from the Pore Refining Laser Program.

  • Open pores
  • Rough skin 
  • Dull skin
  • Experiencing worsening laxity in your skin

Most patients find the laser treatments tolerable and comfortable, even without numbing cream. For patients who are more sensitive to pain, anesthetic cream could be applied prior to commencement of treatment.

Generally, patients will experience mild redness which will subside within 20-30 minutes, and they can continue with their usual daily activities immediately after leaving the clinic. If your treatments may result in longer downtime, you will be informed some time before the treatment so that you can make the necessary changes to your schedule if needed.

You are advised to stay away from intense sun exposure for about a week after the treatment. You may also be advised to refrain from using retinol or retinoic acid products for a few days after the laser treatments.

The duration for each session is 20 minutes.

Visible outcomes may occur within 2 weeks, varying by individual. Optimal results typically emerge after 4 weeks, with improved pore size and collagen stimulation persisting for up to 12 months. Results can last for a year or more.

A single treatment session from our clinic starts at $600.

Combine your Pore Refining Laser with these treatments for maximum efficiency 

Rejuran
(improve mild acne scars)

Rejuran, rich in polynucleotides (PN), promotes skin healing and collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and reducing fine lines. 

When paired with a pore-refining laser, which targets and reduces the size of enlarged pores by stimulating collagen and remodelling the skin’s surface, the effects are amplified. The laser preps the skin by creating controlled micro-injuries, allowing Rejuran to penetrate deeper and work more effectively. This combination not only improves skin texture and tone but also results in a smoother, more youthful complexion with visibly refined pores.

Sunekos
(anti-ageing and dewy skin)

Sunekos, a blend of amino acids and hyaluronic acid, is designed to promote extracellular matrix regeneration, boosting collagen and elastin production to improve skin hydration and elasticity. 

When used in conjunction with a pore-refining laser, which targets and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores through precise thermal energy, the treatment enhances skin resurfacing and stimulates deeper tissue repair. The laser treatment creates microchannels in the skin, facilitating better absorption of Sunekos, which further enhances collagen synthesis and rejuvenates the skin. 

BTX
(botulinum toxin)

Botulinum Toxin (BTX) works by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for creating dynamic wrinkles and reducing sebum production, which can lead to a decrease in pore size and a more matte skin appearance. When paired with a pore-refining laser, which uses focused energy to minimise the size of enlarged pores and improve skin texture through collagen stimulation and remodelling, the effects are further enhanced. 

This combination results in a synergistic effect, offering a smoother, firmer, and more even complexion with visibly reduced pores and a more youthful appearance.
