I totally agreed with what Dr Chua has mentioned. Those lasers are good to reduce the appearance of large pores.
If you have acne scars and can afford downtime,
- Fractional CO2
- Fractional picosecond lasers can kill 2 birds with one stone
If your pores are not too bad and you cannot afford downtime, a carbon laser peel (Q-switch ND:Yag laser) with proper skincare might just do the job. However, repeated treatment is needed to achieve optimal result.
For your second question, it is not difficult to make your cheek bones more defined by using hyaluronic acid filler. It is minimally invasive, cheaper, and has very low downtime if any.
However, if your face shape is wide and your chin is short, you will not look good with high cheek bones. A proper face to face consultation and assessment is needed. The filler injection skills and the artistic sense of the injector is important to achieve a natural looking result.

For pores, there are several effective treatments available that can address this issue:
- Venus Viva Radiofrequency
- Thulium Laser
- Fractional CO2/ Erbium
- Collagen stimulators
- Hollywood Peel with the Specta XT laser (no downtime)
- Chemical peels
Each treatment has its advantages and will really depend on your requirements and needs.
For non-surgical cheek bone augmentation, this can be easily achieved with fillers. With proper placement, a mid-face lift can also be achieved, together with more defined cheek bones.
Nonetheless, a consult would be ideal so that a more accurate assessment can be done first and the appropriate treatment advised.
Hope that helps.
All the best!

Resurfacing lasers are good for tightening pores. The ablative options include the fractional CO2 and Erbium:Yag, the non-ablative options include the Thulium, Erbium:Glass and the long pulsed ND:Yag lasers. Which combination and frequency to treat them depend on your individual condition, but usually the non-ablative options are repeated no earlier than every 2 weeks, and the ablative options no earlier than 4 weeks.
Fillers are the minimally invasive technique to make the cheekbones more defined. Surgery offers a more long lasting alternative by placing implants underneath.
Hope this helps!
