What is the best way to reduce enlarged pores? (photo)
I'm a 42 yo female and have been dealing with enlarged pores for a long time. My skin is mainly oily around the t-zone but my nose still experiences flaky skin.
Thank you for your question. You can consider going for fractional ablative laser resurfacing (erbium/ CO2) or microneedling fractional radiofrequency (Infini) for small to medium sized pores. You can also add Rejuran Healer as a supplement to the treatment for better results.
Large pores can also be treated with TCA cross. Consult a doctor to get an accurate assessment before planning your treatment. Hope this helps!

I absolutely agree with Dr Wu on the treatment plan. The treatments available include:
- Fractional laser
- Chemical peels
- TCA cross
However regardless of treatments, the right products which are light and adequately hydrating are still needed.
Consult your doctor for a more comprehensive plan.
Thank you for your question. Pores are breathing holes in your skin.
As the 2 doctors have explained, you have MANY options for treatment.
The best treatment depends on patient and doctor factors, so it is best to have a consultation with your doctor to share your concerns.
Have a great week ahead.
