"Just like how each of us has a unique appearance, the causes of scars and enlarged pores can also differ greatly from person to person".
Energy-based treatments, such as radiofrequency (RF) and laser therapy, can aid in the reduction of pore size and revision of scars by stimulating collagen production and remodeling old scar tissue in the skin.
- Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel
- Infini RF Microneedling
- Infini RF SFR
▸ Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel (Face)
The Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses a layer of liquid carbon to penetrate deep into the pores of the skin. When the laser is applied to the skin, it targets the carbon particles and heats them up, which causes a slight explosion in the pores. This explosion helps to dislodge dirt, oil, and other impurities that have become trapped in the pores, leading to a reduction in pore size. Additionally, the heat from the laser stimulates collagen production in the skin, resulting in improved skin elasticity and firmness.
- Duration: 45 min
- Price: $320/session
▸ Infini RF Microneedling (Face)
Delivery of high-intensity radiofrequency energy in a multi-layered 3D approach targets acne scars located under the dermal layers of the skin, breaking down old scar tissue and inducing the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers. This treatment can also help reduce the size of pores by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin.
- Duration: 120 min
- Cost: $900/session
▸ Infini RF SFR (Face)
Infini SFR (Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency) delivers RF energy non-invasively to the epidermis for micro-peeling and to the superficial dermis for collagen production in a synergistic effect, which can effectively reduce the appearance of pores and scars.
- Duration: 90 min
- Cost: $800/session
The NCTF 135HA Booster and Exosome are innovative treatments that can help regenerate skin cells, resulting in a reduction of pore size and helping to restore the skin's firmness and elasticity.
- NCTF 135HA Booster
- Exosome Booster
▸ NCTF® BOOST 135 HA (Face)
NCTF135HA contains hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that hydrate, nourish, and strengthen the skin. These ingredients promote collagen production and cell turnover, which can reduce the appearance of pores.
- Duration: 60 min
- Price: $1100/session
▸ BENEV Exosome regenerative complex (Face)
Exosomes are naturally occurring small vesicles that contain various biomolecules, such as growth factors and signaling molecules. They are produced by cells in the body and play a crucial role in cell-to-cell communication. Exosomes help stimulate collagen production by delivering growth factors and signaling molecules to the skin cells, which in turn, promote the production of new collagen. This results in improved skin texture and firmness, leading to a reduction in pore size as the skin becomes tighter and more resilient.
- Duration: 60 min
- Cost: $1100/session

- Microneedling Treatment
- Hydrafacial Syndeo™
- Vitamin A Infusion Peel
- Vitamin A (retinol) Peel + Microneedling
▸ Microneedling treatment
Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This controlled damage stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to improve the texture of the skin, including the appearance of acne scars, and tighten pores.
- Duration: 70 min
- Cost: $350/session
▸ Hydrafacial Syndeo™
The treatment includes a deep cleansing and exfoliation step that can help to unclog pores and remove impurities from the skin, which can reduce the appearance of pore size.
- Duration: 30 min | 45 min | 60 min
- Price: $230 |$308 | $370/session
▸ Vitamin A Infusion Peel
The active ingredient in Vitamin A, retinol, can help induce skin cell turnover, leading to the shedding of dead skin cells and unclogging of pores. This can result in a reduction of pore size. Additionally, Vitamin A can stimulate collagen production in the skin, which can improve skin elasticity and firmness, ultimately reducing the appearance of pores.
- Duration: 50min
- Cost: $270/session
▸ Microneedling + Vitamin A Infusion Peel
Microneedling + Vitamin A Infusion Peel is a two-step treatment that involves creating tiny punctures in the skin through microneedling, which allows for the further infusion of Vitamin A (retinol) into the skin. When combined, the two treatments produce synergistic effects, especially on collagen production, that go beyond what can be achieved individually, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced appearance of pores and scars.
- Duration: 90 min

How many sessions of acne scar treatments do I need?
The number of sessions you need for your acne scar treatment might vary depending on various factors, such as the type, severity, and depth of the scar, the kind of treatment you receive, and how well your skin responds to it.
To achieve the best possible results, it is usually recommended to schedule multiple sessions (at least 5) of acne scar treatments.
Is it a good idea to have several sessions of a single type of pore reduction treatment, or should I combine different types?
When it comes to deciding on pore reduction treatments, you may face a dilemma in choosing between a single type of treatment or a combination of methods, as there are multiple different options available.
Each treatment has its unique benefits and approach to reducing pore size through collagen boosting under the skin or deep cleansing. Therefore, identifying the major cause of enlarged pores is the first step in deciding on a treatment plan.
Is there any downtime?
Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel: Downtime after a Spectra Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel typically lasts a few days, especially for those with dry skin.
Infini RF microneedling: Temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort may occur, but these typically subside within a few hours to a day. Peeling and dryness may also occur, but they usually resolve on their own within a several days to a week.
Infini SFR: mild redness up to several days after the procedure.
Skin Booster: Both NCTF Boost 135HA and Benev Exosome skin boosters are minimally invasive procedures and typically do not require any downtime. However, some people may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, which usually subsides within a few days.
Microneedling: Mild redness and tightness may occur, and the skin may begin to peel and flake off for a few days following the treatment.
Hydrafacial Syndeo™: no downtime.
Vitamin A Infusion Peel: the skin may appear red and feel tight, and it may start to peel and flake off for a few days following the treatment.
Microneedling + Vitamin A Infusion Peel: Mild redness and tightness may occur, and the skin may begin to peel and flake off for a few days following the treatment.
Is it painful?
Invasive treatments like Infini RF, skin booster, and microneedling may cause some discomfort, but most people find it tolerable. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to minimize any discomfort.
Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel and Vitamin A Infusion Peel: minimal to mild discomfort during procedure.
How can I prevent acne scars from forming?
- Treat acne promptly: The sooner you treat acne, the less likely it is to cause scarring.
- Avoid picking or popping pimples: Picking or popping pimples can increase inflammation and the risk of scarring. It's important to resist the urge to touch or squeeze your pimples.
- Protect your skin from the sun: Sun exposure can worsen acne and increase the risk of scarring. Always wear sunscreen with at least SPF 50 and limit your time in the sun.
Unveiling the Secrets of Pore and Acne Scar Treatment: Bye Bye Big Pores & Acne Scars!
Dealing with large pores and acne scars can be a frustrating and challenging experience. However, with the right knowledge and treatment options, you can effectively reduce their appearance and achieve smoother, more even-toned skin.
Understanding the Causes
Before diving into treatments, it's essential to understand the causes of large pores and acne scars. Pores are small openings in the skin that release oil and sweat. When they become clogged with dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, they can stretch and appear larger. Acne scars, on the other hand, occur when the skin's healing process is disrupted, leading to uneven texture and discoloration.
Factors contributing to large pores and acne scars include:
Improper skincare routine
Dirt and debris
Preventing large pores and acne scars starts with a consistent skincare routine and healthy lifestyle choices. Here are some tips to help you minimize their occurrence:
Cleanse your face twice daily: Use a gentle cleanser in the morning and evening to remove dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog pores.
Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliating 1 time a week helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, reducing their appearance. Take note that this exfoliating is not suitable for sensitive skin people.
Wear sunscreen: Protecting your skin from the sun helps prevent collagen breakdown, which can cause pores to appear larger and worsen acne scars.
Avoid picking at pimples: Picking at acne can cause inflammation, infection, and scarring. Instead, use a spot treatment to target breakouts.
Maintain a healthy diet: A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help support healthy skin and prevent breakouts.
