Open pores are dilated openings of the sebaceous glands on the face.
Sometimes on pressing them , a cheesy material gets extruded. They are cosmetically annoying to patients and can be treated using lasers or microdermabrasion. A series of atleast 8 to 10 sitting may be required to improve the pores. Open pores are difficult to eradicate completely but can be significantly improved.
However laser treatment can also be done in select patients with nonsensitive skin
Please talk to our dermatologist for more information on this condition and how it can be treated.
