In young people large pores are characterized by a shiny skin surface which, upon closer inspection, reveals larger pores. This is due to a buildup of sebum and dead skin cells which stretch the follicles. In older people, aging and sun damage results in a loss of dermal support and cause the appearance of enlarged pores. Use of topical agents, chemical peels, lasers and other energy based devices can significantly improve the appearance of pores.
