Which Fraxel Laser Would Work Best on Large Pores?

I am 62, very fair skin with little discoloration or scars but I have large pores and some rosesca. Which Fraxel laser would work best on large pores? Or is there another laser I should consider? Does the roseaca influence which lazer I would use for large pores?

Fraxel restore works GREAT for pores

+1

We were early adopters of the Fraxel laser and discovered on our own how wonderfully it worked in shrinking pores.  It wasn't mentioned by the company so we weren't expecting it but even on myself when I had the laser done, I noticed a tremendous improvement in my pores.  I would highly recommend it.

Large pores and Fraxel

+1

Some of my patients have obtained good improvement in their pore size from both Fraxel Restore and Fraxel Repair, but neither laser can guarantee improvement and I have seen some pores look more open once they're "cleaned out" of their normal skin debris.
