Is phenol peel or Co2 laser effective for large pores?

Peels or Lasers to reduce pore size
All of the methods can be partially effective in resurfacing as well as partially reducing pore size as desired. It really depends upon your surgeons experience with the modality used.
Too superficial of a peel or too few laser passes and you will see minimal change.
Too deep and you will end up with a burn or significant skin pigment changes.
Decide based more on your surgeons experience with either and the results they think they can obtain on examination.
