Fraxel and Pores and Treatment
There are a number of ways to treat pores ranging from lasers to facials to chemical peels. I have many patients who prefer Fraxel Dual since this will also improve the pigmentation as well. Many patients like the Clear and Brilliant Laser which is a "mini-Fraxel" with no down time. Chemical peels and oxygen facials also help as well. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green

A series of Fraxel treatments in combination with a good skin care routine will soften the appearance of unwanted texture in the skin. A series of Fraxel treatments, usually about 4-5 treatments, should be spaced about 4-6 weeks apart to allow for proper collagen remodeling. Collagen remodeling is the key to soften unwanted texture. Patients will achieve their optimal results about 4-6 months after the last Fraxel laser treatment. Additionally at home skin care and regular professional treatments, such as chemical peels and facials focused on extraction and exfoliation, will help reduce the appearance of pore size.
Seek treatment by an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon, general plastic surgeon, or dermatologist.

A more conservative approach is spot TCA to the biggest and deepest pores, followed by Fraxel. I like using 1927, under high density with maximal power. You may require 2 treatments for optimal results.
Microdermabrasion only removes the upper surface of the skin, it can make pores 'look smaller' but in all cases microdermabrasion is only a temporary solution.
