Hello Doctor, I have large pores on my face. dermatologist told me to do laser treatment to remove it .is laser treatment really works and is it safe?

Make sure someone very experienced is doing it too, not just a salon person, but someone who's medically trained by a dr. ...Read more

And get rid of your magnifying mirrors! ...Read more
