Will a superficial chemical peel make my pores smaller and skin tighter?

Q:

Will a superficial chemical peel make my pores smaller and skin tighter?  What would be the cost for this type of peel?

A:

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.

A:

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.
