Question: Dear Dr Maureen. How Can I Minimise My Pores? I Do Clean And Tone Daily, But It Doesn’t Seem To Work.

Dear Dr Maureen. How can I minimise my pores? I do clean and tone daily, but it doesn't seem to work.


Thank-you so much for your enquiry.

This is a commonly asked question. I hate to say this, but many people have been fooled to believe that cleansing and toning minimises enlarged pores. This is unfortunately not true. Once a pore has become enlarged it is highly unlikely that you’re going to get it back to its normal size with the use of homecare products on their own. You are going to need to consider treatments such as superficial chemical peeling as well as Laser Genesis, and then you are going to need to really back those treatments up with a good homecare regime. I would say, from the many patients that I’ve seen, that Neostrata gives excellent results with issues such as these. It is also important that you understand, treating enlarged pores takes a bit of time. If you start these treatments and products, you are going to need to persevere with them for at least 2 months. You won’t see dramatic results from the first week already. But there is definitely hope for your enlarged pores!
