What Causes Large Pores and How Can I Get Rid of Them?

Pores are beneficial for moisturizing our skin and keeping it healthy; however, oversized pores can cause insecurity and irritation. We provide various treatment options at Twin Ports Dermatology to ensure the best solution for each patients’ pores. 

What Causes Large Pores?

A variety of factors cause large pores. Beyond genetics, large pores can be caused by excess oil from glands, decreased elasticity around the pores, and increased hair follicle volume.

How Can I Get Rid of Large Pores?

Large pores are treatable with the correct skin care regimen and treatment. 

Sublative Skin Resurfacing

At Twin Ports Dermatology, we use the ELOS Plus Sublative System to gently target and break down texture issues, scarring, and hyperpigmentation. The ELOS creates micro-injuries to trigger collagen production by combining pulsed light and radiofrequency energy.

Ideal candidates have moderate signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, or similar concerns. 


At Twin Ports Dermatology, we use the SkinPen with several micro-tipped needles to quickly puncture the skin. The micro-injuries trigger higher collagen production and cellular turnover to smooth skin texture and tone. This treatment is an excellent non-surgical option to minimize common complexion concerns. 


DiamondGlow™ exfoliates the skin, extracts impurities, and corrects skin concerns in one treatment. The diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the skin and vacuums the debris from the clogged pores. DiamondGlow™ relieves concerns such as blackheads and enlarged pores while delivering correcting and hydrating serums to the skin. 

Skin Care for Large Pores

The Texture Kit has a variety of medical-grade serums and cleansers to treat dull skin, acne scars, rough texture, and visible pores. The items include a gentle foaming cleanser, hyaluronic serum, mineral clear, advanced smoothing cream, retinol 50, and advanced smoothing pads. 

Please use each item as instructed, as some skincare ingredients may be rough on the skin if overused. 

Pore Minimization for Men

Men tend to have larger pores and often work in dirtier conditions. As a result, their skin requires more extensive cleansing to prevent oversized pores and acne. The Men’s Kit contains a clarifying cleanser, advanced smoothing cream, mineral clear, and advanced smoothing pads.

Please use each item as instructed, as some skincare ingredients may be rough on the skin if overused.
