Will a superficial chemical peel make my pores smaller and skin tighter?
Superficial chemical peels will NOT affect the pore size. It only peels the superficial layer of skin and makes the skin look smooth and glow for few days to a week.
Large pores will improve with MULTIPLE TCA peels and CO2 laser resurfacing or Fractional CO2 laser.
Chemical Peel & Small Pores – A chemical peel nor a laser will not make pores smaller. There is no real documented evidence that any device will make pores smaller or even tighter long term.
