We all long for that smooth, airbrushed appearance to our skin, but alas! What’s one to do when enlarged pores are getting in the way. Though pores have an incredible impact on the body, they can create quite a predicament when they’re taking the spotlight away from the rest of your face.


Unfortunately, enlarged pores normally occur due to genetics, though they can be created by a poor skincare routine and overproduction of sebum. Starting with a double-cleanse regimen and implementing pore-tightening products into your routine is the first step to achieving beautiful skin. However, this may not resolve the condition. That’s where PRP comes in.


Through the means of PRP and microneedling, reducing the size of your pores is a guaranteed method. Micro-needling creates superficial wounds in the surface of the skin, which initiates the healing process. PRP is then applied to the surface of the area to accelerate the healing process. The powerful growth factors contained within PRP stimulate collagen production, promote cell turnover and activate natural collagen production. This procedure combination will smooth away fine lines, even skin tone and give your skin that healthy glow-from-within appearance.
