This is Dr. David

it sounds like you have acne scars on your face which have resulted in large pour which get clogged.

there are laser type skin resurfacing techniques which can help decease the amount of acne scaring you have on your face.

fractional technology and the CO2 laser therapy can help resurface your skin and help minimize the scar on your face and will help clear up your large pours

do you have a dermatologist you can talk to about laser therapy for your face and skin?
Expert:  Doctor Natasha replied 4 years ago.
I was following your question.
There are actually other treatments for large pores other than laser surfacing.
For one, you can do dermabrasion
But it may be cheaper to start with chemical peels. Over-the-counter peels are also available, but you don't really want to do those- they can cause more harm than good.

I would consider going to a dermatologist to see what your best options are.
