Started my DermaRoller on Nose Pores tonight..

Recommended Posts

Berrynose, as long as they aren't scarred pores, you could try getting intradermal botox injections in your nose. It reduces the appearance of pores and lessens sweating and oil production in many patients. Maybe not something to consider at the age of 17, but for the future.

Hello! Thank you for the reply. I'm actually 31 now and there are several scar looking pores, it's looks like 2 pores became one big one. The only thing I can do is somewhat minimize the pore with products. Even then it's still very noticeable. I did however read about skin grafting on patients with cancer on nose from other parts of body. I've seen some really good results, but and again doctors prob post the good ones. I hope in the near future this procedure will be avail for cosmetic reasons. This is really making me anti social, staying away from the sun, becoming more of a night owl. Sigh it's so unfair, but I guess I can work on other body parts such as my body and maybe a nose job = smaller nose = smaller pore area? I'm depress by even talking about it.

I am pleased to know I am not alone with my obsessing over the enlarged pores of my nose. I devote so much energy and effort every day just to appear halfway normal -- inventing new ways to camouflage the massive holes in the center of my face.

...when talking, waiting for peoples eyes to drift down to them. God it hurts!

I have started taking Dove sensitive skin deodorant and smearing it across my nose, filling in all those deep pockets, and then wiping until flattened and somewhat normal looking. I'm a guy and have not resorted to straight makeup yet, but have been thinking about it a lot. Anything to pass as halfway normal.

Concealapore only melts in the heat, making my nose just look really oily.

I ordered a dermaroller last night and have high hopes. I will use with copper peptides and/or epidermal growth factor (EGF) with hopes of having it repair/rebuild the skin of the nose, or perhaps tighten it.

I know enough to avoid accutane while doing the needling, because accutane PROMOTES scarring by drying up the glands which are essential to the natural repair process. I have some keloid scars on my nose which I blame accutane for.

I will also be taking hyaluronic acid supplements during the needling process, so that the skin has plenty of nutrients for proper tissue repair. I hope this will make all the difference.

I also ordered TCA 100% for doing a cross procedure on the pores. This makes me more nervous than the needling, I admit, because there are so many mixed experiences--and so few specifically for dilated pores.

If anyone has any experience with either TCA cross or needling for enlarged nose pores, please respond. Thank you.

I know how you feel. Try shiseido products it's not makeup. Matifying stick is for oil control and elixir pore essence refines pores. They both are whitish which hides pores. It work or me for awhile now. Microfermabrasion helps a little, the best results is 3 or 4 days afterwards your nose gets dryness and it somewhat makes the pores smaller but it only last for 4 days or so. There are home microfermabrasion kits too or at times I use a very fine ver fine sand paper to slightly mimic microfermabrasion effect on nose no more than 10 secs on nose delicately. It's alot cheaper than going to spas. I use work in a medical spa. In all it's similar effect though, but have to be delicate with it. It basically promote your skin to skin dead skin and promote younger skin. Anyhow if anyone else have any other pore cares let me know. It's depressing. It's the only thing I see when I look in the mirror. I'm not bad looking at all, just pores arugh.

yeah guys ur not alone in this. Im a 24yr old male and sometimes my nose gets me so down i just want to sleep all day and do nothing with my life.. It's ridiculous how such a seemingly small thing can influence your life in such a dramatic way. Everything you guys say applies to me. I'm a pretty decent looking guy but when you come close you see what I really look like. But I guess I do exaggerate things in my head. I've tried everything, blamed everything (diet, excersizing, even the people I was seeing 'cause i thought they were giving me fungal diseases) but there seems to be nothing that helps, its all genetics in my case. WHen I look in the mirror it's all I see. Im seeing a psychologist to help me get out of this prison. Ill just have to live with it untill some miracle noseskin transplant procedure is available for the likes of you and me, something I don't see happening in the near future unfortunately.

On the upside, I did notice is that there are people that just dont mind pores. I've met several girls that just don't seem to notice them (I always scan for people looking at my nose), even when talking to them in horrible lighting up close for a long time. Heck, most people dont experience pores like we do, we think of them as disgusting pits of horror that are the root of all our misery every time we look at them and that we can never be happy with them being in our lives. They just see it as part of you. I hope that I can accept my pores as being a part of me someday.

good luck to all of you!

So how have you guys been? Any break throughs? I am thinking of getting my nose done since my nose is too big for my face... I am thinking if I get a nose job my nose will be smaller therefore ppl will look at it less. I know... I'm desperate. I'm so bummed out that I don't have the inspiration to go to the gym anymore or go out with friends...

I'm also thinking of talking to a shrink to cope with my depression with this pore issue I have.. It's so stupid and silly yet every time I look in the mirror I just want to crawl back into bed and sleep. I look at ppl that are old and their pores are not even visible and I'm 32. Putting a mask on helps shrink them for several hours but sigh.... I hope after the nose job ppl will not home in on my big nose as much... Sigh..

Hey guys just wanted to give you a quick update. I've been very well lately, I don't care half as much about my nose as I used to. Still difficult sometimes, especially when i'm close to someone in bad lighting but sooo much better on the whole.

Berrynose i have a large nose as well, personally I don't think a nosejob will help, my father has a small nose and you can see the pores really good on him as well. Try seeing a shrink first, it really helped me (see below)!

What I've done that contributed to this improved state of mind:

1) I've changed to products without SLS or parabens (tea tree face wash and shampoo) and I notice a lot less oil on my nose/face (however it's a bit dry now, so sometimes after washing I moisturize with jojoba oil) and my head is not itchy. I use it once every 2.5 days on average, the other days I just wash with water.

2) I exercise a lot, go running all the time in the morning before school.

3) I've decided to give up this website or internet searching for so-called remedies and products that would only cost me precious time and money.

4) I've been (keeping myself) busy with school and hobbies.

5) I've been going to a psychologist to talk about the problems I had with my nose the last couple of months. I'll probably meet her only once more, she said that I really progressed and that further therapy would be a waste of money (she's so nice).

6) I'm seeing an awesome girl, something that was probably made possible due to my increased self-esteem.

7) also, I don't pick at my nose (there are still plugs coming and going) with my nails only rub through my face with my fingers or handpalms. Acne is not really problem for me anymore so my skin is pretty immune to touch.

Note: The 'problem' still exists. My pores are still large and will be, but now that they are not as shiny anymore they dont stand out as much. But what was the biggest change was my state of mind.

I'm just sharing this with you because this is what changed the last couple of months and I'm feeling so much better. I really hope it can mean something for anyone. Please don't give up and think that it is the end of the world. I've been there like you, it sucks and you think it will never change. I can really suggest to anyone to go see a therapist. I can share some of the tips she gave to me but i think you have to really practice with someone professional.

Good luck and take care! Please ask if there is something you would like to know! I won't be around much but when I do ill respond!

hey when you rub the plugs, does that cause the pores to enlarge?

Okay. So it's 2:30am on a work night, and I happen to be Googling info on derma rolling diy, when I happened to stumble upon this forum. I couldn't not reply what's being said here, because I can so RELATE!!! For once.

I just wanna put it out there, that I also can't stand my face. I have the worst skin texture out of anyone I've met in person, as far as pores go. To call my pores enlarged is a compliment. They are scarred and sag, and are probably visible from 10ft away. Mainly it comes from abusing the sh*t out of my face, ironically in the quest for flawless skin. And genetics. My mom's got some pretty monstrous pores. Although, mine have surpassed hers I'm pretty sure. I also fluctuate in weight vastly. My highest was 260lbs. I'm at a decent size now, but I'd still like to lose about 50 more. My poor elasticity... :(

I think I've done the most damage over the past several years. I'm kinda a do-it-yourself kind of girl, and have an irrational fear of going to the doctor, so I ordered Accutane online, starting when I was 18. I'm now 23. I used Accutane for at least three years, on and off. While on it, I also I did chemical peels - mainly I just did glycolic acid 35% (by myself of course). I scrubbed my face with St Ive's scrub, because I couldn't tolerate the little flakies the newfound dry, shedding skin. I'd also scrub my face with a rag. And then I would put my whole makeup regimen on. Yikes. I'm surprised I even have skin left after all of that! I would also do masks. I'm still addicted Queen Helene Mint Julep mask. And sometimes I used benzoyl peroxide, and other treatment products. I had enlargened pores previous to this, but I think all of the above single-handedly destroyed my face.

I stopped the insanity a year or two ago, and my face is pretty much cleared up; even more so when I'm on birth control. I've found the right supplements to make my skin perk up, eating habits (such as less sugar, less simple carbs, less dairy, more veggies, more protein), and exercise!.... I'm not as harsh with products anymore - I don't dare exfoliate and do more damage! But I'm desperate for nicer skin still. I'm constantly looking up products on Amazon. I'm a makeup connoisseur, and could recommend some awesome products to help give you the look of almost no pores! Dr Brant Pores No More fills them in nice. I really love DHC Velvet Skin. I've recently ordered Avon MagiX Face Perfector and Too Faced Cosmetics Primed and Poreless. They pretty much work in the same way. For my foundation I've been faithful to Almay Clear Complexion and I finally I'm always making my face more matte with Maybelline Shine Free (this is AHmazing!). Also recently, I found that sunless tanner helps camouflage imperfections and blemishes. I just rub it all up on my face, chest, shoulders and arms, and I can look pretty acceptable over the next couple of days.

But I'm sick of superficial ways of looking better! I'm sick of wearing makeup. Sometimes they make me breakout even worse, and clog my pores even more. = (

I wanna be a hot, confident betch without all of the makeup. Recently, I saw the derma roller on Amazon and though, wtf is that?! But then I started reading the amazing I reviews for once in a long time, I felt hope. So I ordered one! Along with topical Vitamin C, Dermalogica Multivitamin serum, and hyaluronic acid serum. I've also watched various YouTube videos (this

is particularly insightful) and I'm ready to make this happen! Although, I think I'll refrain from using it on my nose, judging from beanHOLES results.

I took some pics of my face. I'll post those in the near future.

And I'll keep you all posted on my results...

Maybe I should get my liver checked, but I'm not that worried. I'm not jaundice or anything, and the liver is a self-regenerating organ. I remember doing a lot of research, and using it somewhat responsibly...as responsible as you can be w/o Physician supervision. Not my best life choice, I'm aware.

Well, what I get from the purpose of a derma roller is to make micro-incisions, when cause stress to the the dermis, while still keeping the empidermis intact, which actually increases collagen production. And I've also read that products used in conjuction with the derma roller can make more drastic effects, hence with I bought the Vit C serum, cream with seaweed, Vitamins A, C and E and hyaluronic acid. I was considering topical collagen as well. And of course you need to buy all of the antiseptic supplies - keep it clean, ya hear?!

I purchase this bad boy. With an esthetician strongly recommending it, along with another convincing review, I was pretty much sold. It says it had "medical grade titanium alloy needles," which sounds a lot more legit than plastic to me. 1.5mm in lenth. I've heard longer needles can create more drastic effects, and 1.5mm is about the max you wanna try for at-home use. And compared with other derma rollers, the needles on this are more fine, and there's more of them! Which apparently provides more effective results as well.

Were you considering a derma roller? I guess it's important that your skin is clear, prior to use...which I'm still working on!

Holy crap, thanks for the heads up! I'll check out what type of needles they are once I receive my order. Hopefully they aren't tapered...

Wow, I wouldn't expect that about Vitamin E - crazy! I'm wondering if I should even use my cream...

Does anyone know the best treatment for oily skin, straw berry nose -.-? Those buggers are making my pores relatively bigger, too.

Jeopardy - I'm trying this out! It's active ingredient is sulfur, which seems to have promising results, even if you've already tried benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. They also sell the Ancefree sulfur mask at Walmart. Or Proactiv has a version, too.

I just got some more of this soap as well. I've used it before, and had really nice clearing up.

Hmm, those look like innovative ingredients. I have been trying with Benzoyl & salicylic acid as a cleansor. My doc just prescribed Retin-A I think (I can't really make out his writing of the brand yet, lol, which I'll just get at the pharmacy), so I'm going to see how that goes. In the mean time, I'm going to check out these sulfur products (and possibly a herbal soap).

I used Retin-A when I was 14, and I remember it eating my face. I could have been using too much/too frequently though, but I was following the doctor's directions...that's when I asked about Accutane, and got rejected! Because I had a uterus, of course.

I HAVE GATHERED THIS INFORMATION FROM VARIOUS SOURCES OVER THE INTERNET AS I FOUND TOO MANY CONFLICTING ARTICLES. I HAVE COMPILED AND EXPANDED UPON ITS INFORMATION, DRAWN FROM MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCES.

I AM NOT A DOCTOR, SCIENTIST OR DERMATOLOGIST AND YOU FOLLOW THIS INFORMATION AT YOUR OWN RISK! I AM SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN SUFFERING WITH VISIBLE FACE PORES FOR OVER 12 YEARS AND I AM CONTINIOUSLY LOOKING FOR BETTER SOLUTIONS TO MANAGE THEM. THROUGH DEALING WITH THIS PROBLEM, I HAVE TESTED HUNDREAS OF PRODUCTS / REGIEMS AND WANTED TO SHERE THE CONCLUSIONS I FOUND WITH YOU.

I HAVE MADE THIS WEBSITE AVAILBLE TO YOU - THE SUFFER – YOU ARE NOT ALONE! AND I AM SURE, AFTER READING FROM THIS WEBSITE, YOU WILL BE ON YOUR WAY TO MANAGING YOUR FACE PORES SO THEY ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE!

MY EXPERIENCE

Dealing with large face pores is the most horrible affliction... I am now my twelfth year in dealing with large face pores of the T-Zone area. In most recent times I had started to become recluse and avoiding contact with people because i didn’t want them to see my face. It was only in the last 4 years they had worsened and become larger and more noticeable, which led me to finding a more lasting solution to reduce their appearance. As you already know, coping with face pores is the most frustrating experience as they seem to have a mind of their own, being clogged and pronounced one minute and clear and almost non-existent the next. In the past I tried almost every type of product and regime but to no avail. Sometimes i paid for help from a dermatologist but I always found that it produced no lasting solution and it led me on to even more expensive products and complicated regimes. I eventually got tired of trying these exhaustive and expensive treatments and begun to find simple and cheap solutions to the problem. I thought... If can make the solution cheap and easy, this problem will not control my life the way is has. Since i found a solution, my problem is now not a huge issue, my skin looks good and i feel better about it. Although still slightly visible, my pores are better managed, always clear and not so irritable/unpredictable.

I hope use can use this information to your benefit and hopefully you have found this information at the beginning of your quest for better skin.

WHAT ARE PORES?

Pores are small openings of hair follicles on the skin, within them are microscopic oil (sebum) producing pockets called sebaceous glands, which function to lubricate the skin and keep it supple. Typically, people with oily skin tend to have enlarged pores. Theses larger types of pores are most likely to get clogged with dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria thus, becoming even more noticeable. Pores of the face are largely found around the T-Zone area; nose, cheeks and chin where there is the greatest concentration of sebaceous glands.

Dirt and oil on your face collect around your pores like leaves and debris collect around a storm drain. When those pores get clogged, it creates a pile-up of oil and dead skin cells in the follicle. Soon, bacteria make their way to the blockage and the growth in bacteria causes inflammation etc.

The sad fact is you can’t get rid of your pores, they are a part of you genetic makeup but you can cleanse and care for your skin in ways that make pores less visible. Once you have figured out your specific and definitive skincare regime you can minimise their behaviour and appearance.

HOW TO MAKE PORES LESS VISABLE

I have tried and tested all types of solutions and techniques in the past to try and understand and minimise my pores. It has led me into a great understanding of them and a very simple skin regime to follow.

Firstly, lets dispel some common techniques you may have tried; Squeezing, poking and rubbing the blocked pores, doesn't help matters one bit and will only irritate and enlarge the size of your pores. The less you can touch your face/pores the better, as you will be adding bacteria and dirt with every contact. Really think about how much you touch your face and also what your hands come in contact with on a daily basis. With this in mind, start a new lifestyle regime of sanitation, buy some antibacterial products and condition yourself to always live clean.

You are what you eat. So make sure you have a good and balanced diet with not too much fatty/oily or surgery foods. Also make sure you are taking some useful supplements which help supports skin health. B Complex,C,E Zinc and Omega oils 3 and 6. Not having the proper balance of oils within the body can trigger excess oil production. Ensure that you are eating the proper amount of omega-3 and omega-6 fats. Also, if you do not supplement your fat you will produce a worse version of sebum which appears more waxy and unpleasant.

Make sure you have plenty of exercise or some opportunities to sweat, perhaps in a sauna or hot bath (if you're lazy), it will flush out your skin. Shower or bath regularly and massage your skin while its hot it will stimulate any oils and bring them the surface. Don’t forget to lock your skin afterwards with really cold water! You will do better in buying yourself a face steamer and doing that once or twice a week. It cleans the pores from within, nothing else will clear your skin like it.

Cleansing products bought over the counter will not have the strength to tackle your problem, because what is required to give you lasting effects would be considered unsafe for genral sale. You will need to make you own cleansing solution of Salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is one of the most important treatments for your skin, it’s an exfoliant that can break down oil and unclogs pores. It can be found in many over the counter goods, probably ones you already have in your bathroom cabinet. Salicylic acid increases cell turnover. This makes the skin grow faster increasing collagen production, filling in indentations in the skin and making it less “floppy.”

What Is Salicylic Acid?

There is only one beta hydroxy acid - salicylic acid. The main difference between alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acid is their lipid (oil) solubility. Alpha hydroxy acids are water soluble only, while beta hydroxy acid is lipid (oil) soluble. This means that beta hydroxy acid is able to penetrate into the pore which contains sebum and exfoliate the dead skin cells that are built up inside the pore. Because of this difference in properties, beta hydroxy acid is better used on oily skin with clogged pores. In a nutshell AHAs exfoliate the surface of the skin. BHAs exfoliate the surface and down inside the pores.

The chemical gets its name from the Latin term for willow trees, salix, because it was first made from a complex carbohydrate found in willow bark. Like its chemical cousin aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), salicylic acid can stimulate circulation, in this case, it can stimulate circulation of oil out of pores. Also like aspirin, it can relieve inflammation and redness.

Too much salicylic acid can burn the skin and dry it out. Too little salicylic acid won’t clean out your pores. Most over the counter products use as little as 0.5%, but you really need to be using a solution closer to 3% concentration. There are plenty of methods to make the solution over the internet but i prefer to use a readymade one that is already formulated for the problem in-hand and will naturally dissolve the acid powder. Use Johnson & Johnson’s Blackhead Clearing Cleanser, it already has about 0.5% of salicylic acid in it, so all you will need to do to a 250ml standard bottle is top it up with around 4.2grms of salicylic acid powder. Everyone’s skin will be different and you will need to do some experimenting to find your right concentration. You will know when your solution is too much as it will start to dry your face out. You will need to use this solution morning and night, apply it on your face with with a cotton pad and leave on the face for about 30 seconds before wiping then, washing it off with very cold water, use some toilet paper to dab your face dry.

Lastly, i recommend Nivea’s Q10 Anti-Wrinkle, Pore Perfecting face moisturiser; it really is a superb product. Before applying, dab a little water onto your face so as to lock in some moisture. This will need to be applied after your cleansing solution; only a lemon pip sized amount is necessary.

Thanks for the input! I'm definitely going to start steaming! I've never tried that before.

And I'm a relentless face-picker/toucher! I've know it's bad, but now I know I gotta put an end to it - it's only creating scars/new acne.

I've have a gylcolic face wash, but never really used it. Since it's water soluble, I'm gonna give it a try.

And I've had good results with masks....a weekly clay mask is a helpful regimen to consider.

I used my roller today! Nope.avi, it was shaped like that, but I went very lightly so it wasn't penetrating deep or "slicing." Still, I'm definitely going to wait a week before I have another go. I also used it on my stretch marks. Gross, I know. Oh, how I'm blessed with flawed skin!

I feel like I too must join this thread- I am just so frustrated with myself, because I feel like my condition is because I used Retin-A 0.1% unsupervised (not prescribed by my doc).

My problem isn't really with the large pores. Its more that the skin on my nose is 'glass-like' and really shiny and dry. When I scrunch my nose up, the areas between all the pores form scaly plates with wrinkles. It just looks terrible- although I think the redness contributes to this a lot.

I actually broke a mirror today, and I was holding a piece of it in the window, to get a look at my pores in strong daylight. I had the overwhelming urge just to squeeze my hand around the broken mirror so tight to cut myself. It's pretty scary how this can affect people psychologically.

With the dermarolling you did it too often, u need to give it atleast 2 or 3 weeks between each treatment....you wont see results over night, or even in a few days.... Also u need to read the directions and do it properly, not just go crazy, rolling the needles all over your face. If you had followed the instructions you may have had a success with the dermaroller.

I'm concerned.

I came to this post looking for tip on which size DermaRoller would be best for larges pores on my nose.

Reading through the threads I found several posts that left me quite disturbed.

A couple people expressed that they felt like cutting or burning off their nose or that they felt their skin so unsightly they refused to go out and interact with the world.

I would like to clearly and loudly state, especially as this site is filled with younger people who are at an age where it can be difficult to recoginize this for what it is, mental illness.

No, having bad skin doesn't make you mentally ill (and I know that is a rough sounding word) but refusing to go outside or feeling obsessed with your skin every waking moment isn't healthy.

I urge anyone who feels this way to talk out their feeling with people they trust and also strongly urge them to seek help from a mental health professional. When a physical feature takes that much effort to think about or deal with it isn't healthy. It is possible an underlying chemical imbalance highlights your insecurity and turns it into the huge obstacle in your life or at the very least you have probably recieved very negative feed back about the feature that bothers you; some kids from school were cruel, an unhelpful friend didn't know how hurful they were being or family member, which can be worst, drove it into your head that this thing about you is the biggest part of who you are.

Bright green eyes, a good singing voice, loves cheetos, talented at math, good listener, knowledgable about Glee, anything and everything that makes up a person cannot be defined in a single characterist, like really bad acne.

I had very bad acne, dandruff and was tubby in Middle School. Yes, I got teased on almost a daily basis and I really do empathize with how BAD physical flaws can make a person feel. Yet I still had friends, lots of activities that made me happy, good grades, things that keep your life moving foreward and people who care about you. Cleft palete, sever burn victims, mental or physical birth defects, even people with conditions such as these can find happiness and people that love them, even find them beautiful, for who they are.

I know this isn't really the correct forum for this message but to anyone who read some of the later message will understand why I felt I HAD to post. Wash you face, use perscription treatment, derma roll if it works, take good care of you skin AND of your self entirely. (watch a movie, buy a top, call a friend, LAUGH!)

Sorry for lecturing, but if anyone who feels like they can't go outside due to how bad their skin is feels a bit better or seeks help, totally work it.
