Minimise Pores & Refine Your Texture

Enlarged pores can add unwanted texture to your face and put you at risk for blackheads and other skin problems. While the size of your pores may be genetic, they might be caused by acne scars, excess oil, sun damage, and more. At Dr Refresh, we simultaneously provide you with treatments while educating you on ways to prevent enlarged pores in the future.

We’ll encourage you to hydrate, take care of your skin, and wear sunscreen, but the most effective and immediate results come from our state-of-the-art procedures at Dr Refresh in Ultimo. Our pore minimising treatments stimulate collagen to make your pores narrow and shallower, much in the same way as acne scars are treated. This gives you a smoother, brighter, and more uniform look to your skin.

Concerns We Can Address

Enlarged pores

Clogged pores

Excess oil


Acne scars


Step 1: Consultation

Before receiving treatment at Dr Refresh, we ask that our patients come in for a consultation to meet with Dr Ritu Gupta or her associate dermatologists, who are specialist medical and cosmetic dermatologists, or one of her nurses and therapists. At this consultation, we want to hear from you and learn more about your concerns. We take this time to develop a treatment plan and determine how our options for pore minimising may help you.


Step 2: Treatment

After outlining your treatment program, we will move forward with your next steps. Each patient may undergo different treatments to achieve their desired results. These may include lasers and energy-based devices, medical-grade skincare, and more. Regardless of which treatment you receive, we will instruct on proper preparation and aftercare to protect your skin and make the most of your results.


Step 3: Follow-Up

Many patients have a series of appointments to continually shrink and clear their pores. You may have some aftercare steps to follow, but you’ll be able to soon enjoy your noticeably smooth and rejuvenated skin after visiting Dr Refresh in Ultimo!

Methods for Pore Minimising

Laser Resurfacing

Our Erbium, Picosecond laser, and CO2 laser devices strip back damaged and clogged layers to produce new skin cells and clarify your pores.

Picosecond Laser

Through brief pulses of intense energy that stimulate collagen remodelling, our Pico laser in Ultimo reduces your pores.

TCA Cross

Our specialist applies trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to affected areas on your skin to reduce your pores and treat acne scars.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling creates micropunctures within the skin to encourage collagen production and tighten the surrounding skin, including your pores.
