How can I get tightened pores, and what should be the frequency of treatment?

Aesthetic Medicine Skin, Hair & Nails

Hi, my complexion is rather good but I would like to tighten my pores. What procedures would you recommend, and how long/what frequency should I be doing it?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (4)

Pores can be tightened with various treatments. This can be divided into treatments with or without downtime.

The carbon laser peel can help to reduce pore size without any downtime. This procedure can be repeated every 2 weeks for better results.

If downtime can be tolerated, ablative lasers such as the fractional CO2 or RF microneedling with Intracel or Infini, can be used to produce better, longer lasting results. Typically the treatment can be repeated monthly.

For both types of treatment, it is usually recommended to have 4-8 sessions done.

Another alternative would be to consider skin boosters which, besides reducing pore size, can help to hydrate the skin and improve the skin texture.

Hope this helps!

Those lasers are good to reduce the appearance of large pores.

If you have acne scars and can afford downtime,

  1. Fractional CO2
  2. Erbium:Yag
  3. Erbium:Glass
  4. Thulium 
  5. Fractional picosecond lasers can kill 2 birds with one stone

If your pores are not too bad and you cannot afford downtime, a carbon laser peel (Q-switch ND:Yag laser) with proper skincare might just do the job. However, repeated treatment is needed to achieve optimal result.

For pores, there are several effective treatments available that can address this issue:

  1. Venus Viva Radiofrequency
  2. Thulium Laser
  3. Fractional CO2/ Erbium
  4. Collagen stimulators
  5. Hollywood Peel with the Specta XT laser (no downtime)
  6. Chemical peels

Each treatment has its advantages and will really depend on your requirements and needs.

Resurfacing lasers are good for tightening pores. The ablative options include the fractional CO2 and Erbium:Yag, the non-ablative options include the Thulium, Erbium:Glass and the long pulsed ND:Yag lasers.

Which combination and frequency to treat them depend on your individual condition, but usually the non-ablative options are repeated no earlier than every 2 weeks, and the ablative options no earlier than 4 weeks.
