What are the options for reducing the size of your pores. Does a facelift work for this?

This is a question that I answered for a client who had questions regarding whether a facelift would work to reduce the pore size as well as acne scars:

Fat grafting, laser resurfacing, ipl are better options than a facelift (face lift/ lifestyle lift / quick lift / lunch time lift / mini lift / weekend lift / s lift / lifelift / thread lift ). Some newer studies and results from physicians more recently are showing that these modalities may be more beneficial to reduce pore size for people.  A facelift will not effectively do this but it can improve your wrinkles to an extent.  Fat grafting (or fat transfer / fat augmentation / facial fat transfer / fat injections) has been shown by some to regenerate the skin including reducing the size of your pores.  Stem cells in the transferred fat can rejuvenate the skin for years.  Laser resurfacing through the creation of new collagen can also reduce the size of the pores as well.  Ipl is another newer treatment for pore size.  Out of all the options fat grafting might be the best option for pore size and acne scarring.  More and more surgeons are using fat grafting as a way to improve acne scarring.

I refined an amazing volumizing procedure called “the YoungLift”. This is an innovative technique that volumizes your face to bring out the younger and natural you without looking like you had something done. This is not a facelift and requires no incisions. Only pinpoint puncture sites are used and these heal imperceptibly. The YoungLift can be done without general anesthesia and without drains, and large bandages. You also have sometimes a lot less downtime and discomfort compared with traditional facelift procedures. I employ the very best techniques from around the world into one volumizing procedure and I use my internationally acclaimed understanding of facial beauty to create the youthful volume you once had. In your case, the Younglift could help fill in the acne scars and volumize your face which will reduce your pore size
