Treating Open Pores in Ageing Skin

Beauty tips - how to remove open pores in aging skin
As the skin ages, the oils flow usually slows down and during menopause it can completely stop in some women. I have seen many mature skins with open pores and women complaining of dryness. You would think as the oil flow slows down the pores would shrink. However what is also happening in a mature skin is the collagen and elastin has been declining over the years, causing the skin to thin and sag. As the skin sags, the surface stretches, causing an elongated opening of the mouth of the pore. When I look under the magnifying lamp I see open pores stretched into a oval shape. 

Once the skin starts to sag, you need to switch to cosmetics that help to firm the skin. Skin care products to look for include cell communicating ingredients to boost collagen production such as retinol, peptides and niacinamide. These  will help to slow down the effects of aging. Cosmeceutical beauty treatments and clinical procedures will enhance the daily skin care regimen and deliver a more dramatic result faster

Resurfacing treatments such as IPL, Fraxel and glycolic peels will help resurface the skin, making the pores less obvious and boost collagen production. Skin needling is another option worth looking into for collagen induction, but to refine the pores, other treatments will be needed such as peels or microdermabrasion.

Beauty tips - intensive professional treatments for aging skin
Radiofrequency - RF is a very effective treatment to boost collagen and tightens the skin. LED phototherapy and microcurrent treatment are other options to consider. 

Needless to say,  a good skin care routine will ensure the skin is in great condition to be able to withstand more dramatic treatments and generate greater results. 

Balance and cleanse the skin with a gentle cleanser for your skin type, saturate the skin with moisture with a well formulated toner, use serums and moisturizers loaded with antioxidants, cell communication ingredients such as retinol, niacinamide, and peptides for a maturing saggy skin. Vitamin C is also a great ingredient to include in your daily skin care routine. Use a good physical block sunscreen every day, and exfoliate regularly preferably with a gentle AHA peel.
