Is Obagi Blue Peel Good for Enlarged Pores?

Doctor Answers 5

How do you treat enlarged pores ? Obagi Blue peel or fractional lasers ? Buffalo Niagara NY

There are different strategies to reduce the size of enlarged pores and the Obagi Blue peel is certainly one of them and also time tested to be a clinically efficacious treatment for this problem. In addition to exfoliating skin, it reduces the size of pores by stimulating collagen growth. 

Fractional lasers do the same. It may be best to seek combination treatment, spaced 3 months apart for optimal effect.
