What to do About Clogged Pores

Pores — tiny openings at the bottom of hair follicles where oil and sweat are released. You have an average of 20,000 pores on your face. When dead skin cells and bacteria get trapped on your face, you experience clogged pores. 

Clogged pores can become your worst nightmare by bringing a variety of skin problems like blackheads and acne. While at-home methods are available, many of them do little to give you a noticeable improvement in your skin.

Do you want to clear your pores while getting younger-looking skin? Shantique Med Spa, located in Torrance, California, provides microneedling to unclog pores while rejuvenating your skin. 

How to know if you have clogged pores

While some people know if they have clogged pores, others have no idea. It’s actually harder to tell than one might think. The first sign of clogged pores is generally larger, darker-colored pores that may look like black dots. 

Other signs of clogged pores include blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. For many, it may be hard to distinguish between the tiny black dots and blackheads. However, whether your pores are clogged with dead skin, sebaceous filaments or dirt, they can be treated the same. 

Get beautiful, flawless skin

Everyone wants beautiful skin but many of us don’t know where to start. Microneedling is praised by beauty experts and dermatologists around the world for its collagen-boosting and other anti-aging properties. But how exactly does it work?

Microneedling starts with a dermaroller — a handheld device that looks like a wheel with hundreds of tiny needles. Depending on what you’re looking to treat, the needles can range in size from .5 to 2.5 millimeters. 

During your microneedling session, Shahinaz Soliman, MD applies a topical numbing cream to help keep you comfortable during your treatment. Next, she rolls the dermaroller over your face and neck several times. 

The pinpricks create tiny, controlled trauma to your skin which removes dirt and blackheads while ramping up collagen production. Lastly, Dr. Soliman applies a custom serum to your skin to maximize cellular turnover and anti-aging properties. 

All the benefits

Aside from its miraculous anti-aging properties, microneedling minimizes your pores. It works by stimulating collagen found in and around your pores, causing them to plump up and appear smaller. The smaller pore size also helps your pores from getting clogged in the future.

In addition to smaller pores, microneedling also:

You’ll also love how microneedling allows your beauty products to work better. Your skin will be more receptive to absorbing your products and your concealer will glide on smoothly. Think of it as a win-win for you and your skin.
