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. Nonetheless, the problem of large pores can be solved with Pore-Refining Laser.
About the programme
Pore-refining Laser programme 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 programme 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.

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.
