Fraxel® Dual is one of the most advanced non-ablative laser resurfacing devices on the market. The procedure targets specific layers in the skin, heating cells to encourage the production of collagen. In the days and weeks following treatment, patients typically notice improvements in skin quality and firmness, as well as a reduction in the appearance of the size of their pores.
Chemical peels benefit the skin in multiple ways, including improving the appearance of pore size. Dr. Tanzi and the team at Capital Laser & Skin Care offer various chemical peels, including glycolic acid, PCA Ultra Peel®, Vitalize® (which uses a combination of lactic, salicylic and retinoic acid), and trichloroacetic acid. The type of chemical peel recommended is customized to skin type to achieve the best results.
Am I a Candidate for Pore Reducing Treatments?
If you have enlarged pores and other aging signs, you might be a good candidate for pore reducing treatments. It is important to note that pore-reducing treatments do not have permanent results. Lasers and chemical peels are generally considered safe and effective. Both come with recovery time, ranging from a couple of days to several weeks depending on the depth of treatment.
