I am a 25 year old male and i am fair skinned. Teenage acne has left some mild scarring but oil production has been a significant issue leading to significant enlargement of the pores to my cheeks nose and forehead. What improvement would be realistically possible following such treatment?
Will Laser Resurfacing Help to Minimize Open/enlarged Pores?

Pore size reduction
Pore size may be reduced with numerous lasers that are available. Erbium lasers can sometimes do it by performing microlaser peels as well as Thermascan lasers which can also help acne scarring by remodeling collagen under the surface.
