Frustrated with scarred large pores on nosefraxel
Posted 23 August 2009 - 01:42 AM
I am using tretinoin .01% right now, but it's still too soon to tell how effective it will be, but I'm doubtful because the I've damaged the skin around it and it appears to be permanent. Understand that they are clean, not clogged. For instance, when I pinch my nostrils as if there's a bad smell, I can see oil oozing out of the pores. It looks like pin-size needles that have punctured deep into the skin of my nose, it's so unsightly and depressing.
Can anyone relate to this? What kind of peel and laser treatment should work? I've looked up Fraxel, but have read mixed reviews. I am might try MD Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel, but I just don't think it'll do much or might even worsen it, same with the Fraxel?
If these was something that truly works, any price is worth it.
is it also true that the pores/skin on the nose work differently; might heal differently? Sorry for long post.

i think its important to remember that everyone has large pores on their nose to some degree. And secondly i heard the retin A is the best thing for it, so you are on the right track....
I have no more advice since i haven't looked into treating it as much
Acne level moderate - under control
Clindamycin and 100mg doxycycline stopped dec 22 2008-2010.
Diane25 last two months
salicylic acid 2% glycolic 15% now and then.
Restylane injections for two scars.
laser for one pigmented sun spot caused by antibiotics.
