Hello, I have enlarged/scarred pores. I've had a Micro laser peel, and I've had 3 treatments of Fraxel re:storeTM in the past without any results. What is the best laser or treatment to use on enlarged, scarred pores?

IMHO, the most cost effective treatment for large pores is an excellent skin health program. You may not see many other doctors agree with me since this is not a very profitable recommendation. Once the skin is "conditioned", medium depth chemical peels will be highly effective at giving you the results you are seeking.
Pore reduction is best done with any of the "Fractional carbon dioxide lasers. Mixto Microfractional CO2, Fraxel Repair which is a CO2 laser not Fraxel restore (which is a lesser wavelength) are two examples. The most impertant questions are: What is the wavelength of the laser? Answer 10600 nanometers. and Does the laser drill small holes?
