Very oily skin, acne, large pores! Would getting laser treatment cure me of this?

No

Acne
No, laser won't cure you of this however fractional lasers can help shrink pore size which in turn will help with acne. There are products you can use for the acne as well as oil. There are also other maintenance treatments with facials and peels that can help as well. The combination of lasers, products, and maintenance is the best option for you.

Dr. Bob Ourian answered:

Can I use oxy 5 on my acne scar and how to make my large pores less visible using home treatment?

Yes and no

Scarring
You can use it on your acne scars but it's not going to do anything. Oxy 5 (benzoyl peroxide 5%) is used for treatment of acne (pimples), not acne scars. It also has no effect on the size of pores. The treatment for acne scars and pores is usually laser resurfacing.

I'm 40 years old and have very large pores on my nose...is there a way to shrink them? An Rx or OTC treatment? They look like mini blackheads. Thanks!

PORES

Acne
PORES ARE NOT LIKE DOORS. YOU CANNOT OPEN AND CLOSE THEM WHENEVER YOU WISH. PORES ARE THE OPENINGS OF OIL GLANDS; THEY ARE INHERITED; YOU CANNOT CHANGE THEIR SIZE. OILY SKIN & SEVERE ACNE MAY MAKE PORES “APPEAR” LARGER. SQUEEZING BLACKHEADS & PIMPLES CAN LEAD TO PERMANENTLY WIDENED PORES. TONERS & ASTRINGENTS CAN MAKE THEM LOOK SMALLER TEMPORARILY. AND GET RID OF YOUR MAGNIFYING MIRRORS!

How do you get rid of blackheads and large pores as an adult?

Blackheads

Vitamin
Tretinoin (Retin-A, Atralin, Renova) is the mainstay of treatment for whiteheads and blackheads. Tretinoin is a derivative of vitamin A and works by increasing cell turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the sloughed cells. It helps expel the plugged material returning the pore to normal. Tretinoin can be irritating, so specific instructions should be followed.
