Causes of Large Pores on cheeks and nose

Enlarged pores are a common concern for many men and women of all ages and skin types, but especially for those who suffer from oily and combination skin. This condition can be triggered by genetic disposition or skin quality. Oily skin can usually be more susceptible to enlarged pores and their appearance can be made worse when excess sebum becomes trapped in the pore, blocking it and making it appear wider and more clearly visible. This can also lead to blackheads and breakouts.

However, age can also play a significant role in the appearance of pores. Over time, the skin loses its collagen and elastin that support the pores and their natural structure becomes looser. Sun damage may also cause enlarged pores, since sun exposure can also reduce the production of collagen.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should you avoid?

Enlarged pores mainly appear around the nose area due to the increased production of oil. It is important to avoid using skincare products that clog pores or cause your oil glands to produce more oil. Irritating products can stimulate more oil production directly in the pore. Finally, ensuring a consistent skincare routine is essential in minimising pore size and must be adhered to following any large pores treatment.

Who is affected?

Men and women can both suffer from large pores on cheeks and the nose, but individuals suffering from oily skin are more susceptible. Large pores predominantly appear on the face, particularly you’ll find enlarged pores on nose and cheeks. However, the appearance of enlarged pores can also be noticed on body areas such as legs, arms and backs which sometimes can be a result of hair removal.

Should you remove all oils from your skin?

Although it may seem rational to remove as much oil as possible from your face if this is causing enlarged pores, this can actually make matters worse. Drying out your skin can contribute to loss of elasticity, prematurely ageing your skin which can further cause large pores on cheeks and the nose. What’s more, your skin may overcompensate for the dryness by producing even more sebum. You should moisturise twice a day after cleansing, using a light, water-based moisturiser.

After suffering with severe digestive problems for many years, I decided to book a course of hydrotherapy treats at EE Medispa in Chelsea. Having never had this treatment I was quite nervous but the staff and my practitioner Victoria made the whole process very comfortable. I have now been seeing Victoria for regular sessions for about two months and I can honestly say it has changed my life. I have completely changed my diet and the process of detoxification has helped me eliminate everything that was causing me to feel so unwell for many years. I would highly recommend this service to anyone with digestive issues. I am now on my second course of treatments and continue to see great results. This is one of the best investments in my health I have ever made. Thank you so much Victoria! : )

The Zone Out treatment was fantastic, it relaxed my mind and body, clearing my head of all that “London” stress … Victoria, the Hydrotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and informative; above all making me feel at ease …I can’t wait to come back again!

Jennifer Burton

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

I had Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy. I was immediately at ease with Victoria, she was both friendly and professional. I wasn't sure what to expect with this treatment but within a few minutes of it starting I was already in an extremely relaxed, almost meditative state. It was like being transported into a zone between asleep and awake where you are totally at calm - thoughts can enter your mind but you just let them float away. Afterwards I felt as though I had been asleep for a hours, I was relaxed but also rejuvenated. I would highly recommend trying this!

Victoria floats in, complete with bangles and maxiskirt, far from the overall-clad dominatrix I had envisaged. The consultation and treatment explanation are extensive but reassuring and by the time I am gowned up on the bed, I’d honestly trust her with my life. The process is much more civilised than you’d think. Within four sessions, my eyes are brighter, my skin is clearer and I have the energy of a five-year old on a sugar high. The difference is astounding.”

Victoria is incredibly nice about what must be one of the world’s least appealing jobs…I feel so slim, spritely and ready for a dance with John Travolta
