What is a Deep Pore Cleanse?

Just as it sounds, this treatment targets to clean your clogged pores with either our HydraFacial or microdermabrasion sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Pores?

Pores are small openings in your skin that release oil and sweat. They are found throughout the body and skin, although mostly concentrated in the face. The pores are very small, but if there is a build up of dead skin cells, oil, or sweat, the pores can become larger in size and visible to the naked eye. Clogged pores can also cause acne and an increase in blackheads and whiteheads. If you have oily skin and/or have acne-prone skin, it is recommended to regularly cleanse and gently exfoliate your pores to reduce its effects.

What causes Clogged Pores?

When dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and/or sweat is prevented from being released properly and gets built up inside the pores, the pores become clogged. These clogged pores can be the root cause of pustular acne, whiteheads, and blackheads. While regular cleansing and exfoliation can help clean the pores, over-cleansing can also cause your pores to clog. When you over-cleanse or over-exfoliate, the skin loses its natural, necessary oil. The skin will then try to compensate for the loss by over-producing your bodily oil. An increase in oil-production can then clog the small pores. So, just the right amount of cleansing is key to maintaining a healthy and clean skin. Speak to your dermatologist or esthetician to find the right amount and product for your skin type.

How do you deep cleanse the Pores?

You can cleanse your pores at home with gentle exfoliants and clay masks on a regular basis. However, many of these products are not great at targeting the deep roots of your pores. You may see slight improvements, but for a deeper reach and a more effective cleansing treatment, it is recommended to get one of our deep pore cleansing treatments. There are two different treatments our office provides: the HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion.

  • The HydraFacial uses its probe to act as a vacuum for your pores. It sucks out the dirt and dead skin cells clogging up your pores first, then infuses super serums containing antioxidants to protect and hydrate the skin. 
  • With microdermabrasion, its probe acts as a gentle exfoliant to remove excess oil and dead skin cells in your pores. 

These services not only unclog your pores, but are great for improving the skin complexion overall. Find out about their specific effects on your skin by clicking on their links!

Deep pore cleansing is best for oily skin and/or acne-prone skin, but anyone can be treated with either the HydraFacial or microdermabrasion. If you are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to improve your skin complexion, this is perfect for you.
