How can I get rid of bumps and enlarged pores on my cheeks? Will I age quicker?
6 months ago
I am 21 years old. I have a lot of small bumps underneath my skin on my cheeks, it may be that my skin is congested. I'm not sure. But I also have a problem of having enlarged (massive) pores on my cheeks, which occurred at a very young age, since I was 17! Will this mean I will age faster? I really don't want to look old sooner than I should at least. Please try not to suggest expensive treatments, I cannot do those at the moment. I have tried microdermabrasion, it hasn't made much difference.

Thank you for your question, I would recommend a series of microneedling
treatments. Microneedling releases any blockage underneath the skin by
microscopic needles puncturing the dermis. An immediate decrease in pores is
expected after one session. A hydrating serum or PRP (platelet rich plasma) is
combined with the microneedling for deeper penetration. This treatment will keep your skin
rejuvenated and youthful.
