Pores are tiny openings in the skin that deliver sebum from the sebaceous glands to the surface of the skin in order to keep skin moisturized. There are many factors that can cause pores to look enlarged, and this skin concern is difficult to treat by at-home skincare regimens alone.
Our age, hormones, and genetics affect the size of our pores. When pores are clogged, either as a result of acne or overly oily skin, it will cause the pores to expand and ultimately, they will become more visible. As skin ages or becomes sun damaged, it loses elasticity and starts to sag. This can make pores look larger, and even more so if they are already clogged. When pores are clogged, it will also cause them to stretch out, and therefore it is important to treat pore issues quickly and often. Pores are most commonly visible on the nose, forehead, and cheeks.
The most effective ways to treat enlarged pores are through procedures that exfoliate the skin and tighten the skin. Elite Wellness & Beauty Spa offers several options that will decrease the size of your pores quickly and with minimal downtime and discomfort.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment.
Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to deeply exfoliate facial skin. The dead and damaged top layer of skin will fall off, revealing a new, radiant facial profile. It’s a less aggressive alternative to regular dermabrasion with twice the results!
Microdermabrasion is a specialized treatment that addresses a variety of skin care needs.

Sublative RF is an alternative to harsher treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Instead of using light or lasers, Sublative RF uses radio frequency technology to tighten skin, shrink large pores, and heal previous acne scarring as well as improve mild to moderate wrinkles, red and brown spots, stretchmarks and textural irregularities. It generates deep dermal heating in the targeted skin region to induce skin injury, which elicits a wound healing response which leads to tighter, rejuvenated skin. Sublative restores a youthful glow and smooths skin texture without the pain or downtime associated with more invasive treatments, effectively targeting the skin’s imperfections while offering the following advantages: treatments in less than an hour; minimal downtime; affordable; safe and effective on all skin types.
Requires a minimum of 3 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
