Treatments for Open or Enlarged Pores and Blackheads

in Edinburgh

Often clients with oily or combination skin are concerned by enlarged pores or hair follicles especially on the nose, cheeks or chin. This type of skin has very active oil glands which produces excess sebum. This sebum – or oil – can collect in the pore and clog it. This can make the pore stretch and appear enlarged especially as it turns black as it oxidises on the surface of the face.

Open pores can be treated in a number of ways. A course of microneedling is typically my first port of call – whether that’s with my Dermaforce machine or freehand with my microneedling pen. It works by creating small wounds in the dermis of the skin. This, in turn, sees the body counteract the damage by producing new collagen and fresh cells to repair the injured skin. The result is smoother skin and smaller, less visible pores.

Elizabeth’s treatments are available on their own or as part of a bespoke skincare journey


1. Your Consultation

Every Elizabeth M skincare journey starts with an hour-long new client consultation. During this appointment Liz will examine your skin and have an in-depth discussion about your challenges and goals.

Consultations can be booked as standalone appointments or in conjunction with an introductory facial. In addition, all clients will leave with a skincare prescription and a treatment plan.


2. Your Introduction

Whilst everyone’s skin is different, and as such no two treatment plans will be the same, all Elizabeth M skincare journeys begin with an intensive series of introductory appointments. Liz will often see or speak to you multiple times a week during this phase in order to get your skin on the right track. She also likes to see how it responds to different products and treatments. At this point Liz will supply you with all the products and supplements needed for your personalised at-home regime. It’s at this stage she may also refer you to complimentary therapists if extra support is needed for your skincare journey.


3. Your Transformation

Once your skincare journey is underway Liz will see you as often as your treatment plan dictates. As skincare journeys are highly personal – and may also be tweaked as they progress – this will vary from month to month and from face to face. However, all clients can look forward to a minimum of two 90-minute bespoke facials per month. Liz remains on call for clients during her business hours throughout this time and will also be on hand to refill skincare prescriptions as required.
