Laser Genesis for Large Pore Size

Cutera's Laser Genesis claims to shrink pore size yet I haven't found a local plastic surgeon who offers it. I've had Sciton's Microlaser Peel with Profractional and UltraPulse C02 laser. Both times I had about 2 weeks of downtime but didn't see reduction in pore size. Would I be going backwards to try Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis helps reduce the appearance of pores mild to moderately... I would encourage also getting on a Retin-A...

Good luck.

Laser Genesis does help to reduce the size of your pores, but whether or not it will be enough improvement for you is hard to say without an in person exam. Are you already using a Retin-A product because this is one of the easiest ways to improve pore size.

We have a lot of experience with Cutera. The pore size reduction is modest at best. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.
