What treatment will be helpful for my enlarged pores? (Pics)

Recommended Posts

I had cystic acne in this area. Now the acne has been treated and I’m focusing on my scars. The scars are not deep-pitted but they do look like enlarged pores. What treatments should I go for? Lasers? Peels?

 

thanks very much.

I also live in Alberta, Canada so there are not many good acne scar revision specialists or dermatologists.

@SlowTwister CAN it is difficult. Clear and brilliant several sessions, or 1927nm Fraxel high density, or rf needling. Expect a percentage of improvement not perfection. Stop all acids, peels, exfoliants. Your ""repair moisture barrier"" may be damaged hence more pores, Google that for hints.

Thank you so much for your answer. I did some research in this forum (I’m new to treatments) and I learned that TCA cross is the answer to “ice-pick” scars or enlarged pores.

 

shpuld I try that (at a dermatologist’s office of course)?

@SlowTwister You have almost non existent skin issues. No you don't want to use tca cross, ... where would they put it, ... you have a tiny bit of large pores. Several people have this and mostly from overproduction of oil - sebum. Look into using something like salicylic acid or peels by your med spa for large pores, and to clean out the sebum. I suggested the 1927nm full density as you thought it was a issue or clear and brilliant. If it was me I would do nothing your skin is better than 99% of the people on here. When we over treat it can make your skin worse. 

Look into repairing your moisture barrier as well with something like Urea creams. Google repair moisture barrier. IF you over peel or use harsh exfoliating products your pores will become larger. You will never have 100% perfect skin, ...everyone has pores and see ""some"" improvement.
