Enlarged Pores: A Common Problem with Teenagers & Adults


Enlarged pores are a common skin concern. According to a survey conducted by the skincare line SK-II, 71% of women say that they feel more confident when their pores are less noticeable.  Sun damage, blackheads, and clogged pores are also large contributors to enlarged pores.


The surface of the face has an average of 300,000 pores, or openings, that allow for the healthy secretion of sweat to keep the skin cool, and sebum, which provides a natural barrier against the environment. While oily faces and genetics can contribute to enlarged pores, it is aging that is the biggest culprit. With the loss of collagen in your face, your skin stretches and sags, allowing for the pores on your face to look larger.

How we treat it

We suggest that clients stay informed about a proper skin care regimen which supports the treatments they receive. Our staff stays current with the highest quality of medical grade products available and what is right for your skin.

ProFractional Laser

This laser puts small holes into the skin to break up pigmentation. It can be thought of as aerating your skin, which allows the melanin to escape from the vessel. ProFractional is typically used in conjunction with hydroquinone for the span of the treatments. This is an ideal option for patients with melasma or scars.


A popular service offered at Mad Peaches, micro-needling yields great results in minimizing pores, refining texture of the skin, lightening pigmentation and reducing tissue scarring. 12 tiny needles use pin-point punctures which induce greater collagen growth, resulting in a smoother, more glowing complexion. A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended and is ideal for any skin type.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels may also be used to treat brown spots. These procedures sand or burn off the outer layers of the skin so new skin can grow in its place.
