About enlarged pores
Enlarged pores are depressions or “holes” in the surface of the skin that contain one or more openings to the ducts responsible for carrying sweat and oil from your glands.
Enlarged pores are extremely common and can add unwanted texture to your skin. A variety of things lead to enlarged pores, such as: genetics, age, skin type, sun damage, blackheads, hygiene habits, and smoking.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
What are pores?
Pores are small openings in the skin's surface that produce sebum (oil), act as a pathway for hair follicles, and release sweat.
What causes enlarged pores?
The largest factor determining pore size is genetics. If your family members have large pores, you likely will also. Age is another factor, as pores appear larger when your skin loses elasticity. Sun damage strips your skin of important proteins and leads to enlarged pores. Finally, an excess of oil and dead skin cells clogging your pores leads them to enlarge as well.
Can you shrink enlarged pores at home?
A great skincare regimen is your first line of defense against almost any skin concern, including enlarged pores. Following the skincare steps below can help minimize your pores, though of course the treatments offered at West Linn Aesthetics are more effective with faster results.
