Hello

Welcome and Thank you for your query posted.

My name is***** and being a Skin, Hair and Nail specialist I would be able to provide you with an appropriate solution to your concern.

Please note that my Goal is to provide you with an Excellent Service .

These are the ways to reduce the pore size :

1. Application of creams or serums like Vitamin C serums , Retinol creams , Sebium Pore corrector

2. Dermaroller or Microneedling treatment done once a week for 6 to 8 weeks. You can use 0.5 mm dermaroller size .

3. You can also consider during laser fractional laser treatments done at the clinic once a month for 4 to 6 months .

These would help in minimizing appearance of pores.

You should avoid black head white head removal using comedone extraction instrument at the beauty parlour or clinic as that increases pore size.

Please note that the answer provided is for information purpose only and does not substitute a Doctor - Patient Consultation in Clinic

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
