Treatment for Clogged Pores
solution for clogged pores is manual extraction. The dry and flaky skin may be
a result of the tretinoin; it is ok to apply an oil-free moisturizer after
tretinoin to help with the dryness. I would recommend continued use of your
medications with extractions followed by a blue light. The extractions will
help with your congested pores and the blue light will help kill the existing
bacteria on your skin to help prevent and treat your beakouts.

Blue light therapy for acne
Clogging of the pores is typically treated with tretinoin cream but it may take several months to see the results. Facials with extractions and Isolaz photopneumatic treatments are effective options to complement the tretinoin. An oil-free moisturizer can help with dryness. Blue light therapy can help decrease the bacteria on the skin and slow down oil production but works better for pimples than for clogged pores.
