Procedure/pore size: Dermatologists recommend that to decrease pore size, you cleanse, exfoliate, and use topical treatments such as benzoyl peroxide and alpha hydroxy. Studies show that procedures such as using the Fractional and CO2 laser treatments to decrease pore size, chemical peels, photo facials, and makeup can also be effective. Please visit your Dermatologist. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22816441
