Large Pores: Minimizing Pores and Improving Skin Quality
Pores are a reflection of several environmental, physiologic, and genetic factors. Contrary to the beauty industry, there is no single product or treatment that will universally improve pores. The pores enlarge because of hormonal influences, rosacea, the environment and region of the country you live in, the indoor atmosphere (humid or cool), the oiliness of your skin, presence of hyperhidrosis, and of course, genetics.
Our office employs an aggresive exfoliative treatment protocol including Pore Clarifying Pads used on a daily basis. This allows the external causes of pores to subside and induces gradual improvement in skin pore quality and size.
Laser & skin creams can help improve your pores

Intradermal Botox - Reduces Pores and Smoothens Skin
Intradermal Botox Injections (Botox injected into the skin) is a safe and very effective way to shrink pores and give skin a tightened tone. Skin looks smoother and has a "matte" appearance after the injections. No down time is involved and results last 4 - 6 months.
Laser and pore size treatments
I choose a particular laser based upon the size of the pore, skin type of the patient, and expectations.
I find that the most reliable method is with INFINI RF, micron needling using energy. This beats all my Fraxel lasers and chemical peel techniques. Very little downtime, and it is ideal for small to medium size pores.
Chemical peels such as TCA (70-100%) placed focally in the pores is an excellent treatment for large pores.
Pore size reduction treatments should be tailored according to the patient IMO.

In my medical spa (Spa Aesthetica) we have found 4 common treatments that reduce pore size:

The improvement we see will vary depending on the patient's skin type and the number and types of treatments.
