Enlarged Pore Treatments in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky

At Skin Spa, we offer multiple treatments to help minimize enlarged pores.

Our Laser Facial shrinks enlarged pores and removes blood vessels and brown discoloration in the skin with absolutely no downtime. The Laser Facial works using a focused beam of light to the skin to erase irregular chromophores. Treatments are comfortable with a cool air system used during the appointment. Skin will appear red for a short period afterwards, but you may return to normal activities immediately with sunscreen protection. The best results will require multiple treatments, spaced two to three weeks apart.

Also used for Hand Rejuvenation, the Affirm/Multiplex Laser treatment makes the skin appear more supple, youthful and full, while helping to treat fine lines, pore size, skin tone, and texture. Since this laser does not go any deeper into the skin than necessary, the treatments deliver only minimal discomfort that is tolerable without the use of topical numbing creams. Redness that resembles a sunburn, swelling or puffiness is usually gone within hours and lasting no more than a few days. For best results, three to five treatments are recommended to expose all of the skin to the microthermal laser zones. Sessions last 30 minutes and are spaced three weeks apart.Our MicroLaserPeel is a partial to full epidermal laser peel and is done in the spa with a topical anesthetic. It ablates the outermost layers of the skin with a depth between 10 and 50 microns based on the level of correction needed. This treatment is usually repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve the desired result. Downtime is three to four days; patients may look sunburned immediately following the treatment, but the redness will continue to dissipate.

Also used to treat Acne Scars, Our MicroLaserPeel is a partial to full epidermal laser peel and is done in the spa with a topical anesthetic. It ablates the outermost layers of the skin with a depth between 10 and 50 microns based on the level of correction needed. This treatment is usually repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve the desired result. Downtime is three to four days; patients may look sunburned immediately following the treatment, but the redness will continue to dissipate.

The ProFractional laser uses energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the treated area, stimulating your own collagen production, plumping up the skin to smooth out wrinkles, lines, scars, enlarged pores, and other irregularities. This custom designed laser treatment is performed in-office using numbing cream, making the treatment comfortable. Popular areas for treatment are the face, neck, chest and hands. Best results can take up to four treatments, spaced three to six weeks apart. Complete healing comes takes one to seven days depending on treatment depth. Most patients return to normal activities and can apply make-up within a week. Treated skin will be more sensitive to the sun making sun block a necessity.

Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT) w/ Levulan reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and is used to treat precancerous lesions on the skin. It also shuts down sebaceous oil glands in the skin for those with too oily of skin. These come in a series of two to three treatments, spaced six weeks apart. This does require 24 to 36 hours of downtime, and to stay indoors, away from light for 24 hours. This can cause the face to become red like a sunburn; some patients can peel depending on skin type.

For a non-laser approach, the Skin Spa offers Home Skin Care and Chemical Peels.  For more information regarding the treatment of enlarged pores and other laser treatments, visit our Laser Treatments home page.
