Micro needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy is a high successful aesthetic treatment for the reduction of open pores. No topical cream penetrates into the pore in the same way that micro skin needling can do.

Understanding how pores appear enlarged is the key to selecting the correct treatment. Pores form part of the bodies self cooling system. In other words, they are designed to release water in the form of sweat along with oils such as sebum. Therefore, they must have the ability to open and close. Over time the pore becomes saggy and especially as a result of sun damage.

During micro skin needling a very fine needle penetrates into the pore, at high speed. The promotes the production of collagen which restores elasticity.


A skin peel or microdermabrasion are excellent treatments to have in advance of micro skin needling as they remove impacted matter and blackheads from the skin.
