Repeat both morning and evening.

Application Process

  1. Shake Intensive Pore Minimizer to distribute active ingredients.

      A:

      Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

      Yes, is is perfectly fine to use the Blue Plasma with your Pore Power Duo.

      There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are:

      1. Cleanser
      2. Toner or Serum
      3. Exfoliant
      4. Treatment
      5. Moisturizer

      Blue Plasma is a PM exfoliant and should be applied after the Intensive Pore Minimizer, then follow with treatment and moisturizer is always applied last.

      I hope this is helpful.

      A:

      Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

      We do not have an acne line or products available to address black heads.

      However, here is what I recommend for enlarged pores:
      Citrus Facial Wash - This Vitamin C Ester enhanced facial wash is non-drying, removing impurities, debris and makeup. The Vitamin C Ester in this mild, non-drying formula helps prevent the appearance of redness and blotchiness, sometimes associated with the use of harsh cleansers. The anti-aging cleanser helps improve tone, clarity and texture, unveiling skin's natural radiance. DMAE is added to provide firming benefits by improving facial muscle tone, enhancing contour and diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Suitable for all skin types, though especially recommended for combination skin.
      Intensive Pore Minimizer - This treatment is designed to effectively reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. It helps control and absorb excess oil, maintains skin elasticity and resilience and gently exfoliates to remove wax or dirt build-up that can clog and further stretch pores. An advanced formula with universal appeal, it’s appropriate for most skin types: oily, extremely dry, or showing visible signs of aging. The result is skin that appears firmer, less oily, less shiny and remains fresh and smooth throughout the day.
      Intensive Pore Treatment – Treats the causes of enlarged pores. With Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE and Salicylic Acid Derivative. Enlarged pores is a universal skin concern shared by oily or blemish prone skin types, as well as skin showing loss of firmness or sun damage. Untreated, enlarged pores can age one’s appearance and compromise skin health. Designed with a patented, state-of-the-art science, Intensive Pore Treatment takes a unique approach by tackling the causes of pores, rather than masking the symptoms and further aggravating the problem. Non-clogging or filling, oil free and silicone free, this treatment is proven effective and delivers superior results.

      I hope this is helpful.

      The Pore Power Duo can be used with the High Potency Amine Face Lift every day. The order in which you will apply the products is: Intensive Pore Minimizer, Intensive Pore Treatment, High Potency Amine Face Lift. We then recommend finishing with a moisturizer.

    Have combination/oily acne prone skin with enlarge pores and black heads on nose, cheeks, and forehead. Skin tends to be dry and flakey during the Winter months. First time Perricone MD user. Looking to get Intensive Pore Min and Intensive Pore Tx to treat problem areas. Also, interested in anti-aging products such as Blue Plasma, Cold Plasma, and Face Finishing. No wrinkles or fine lines, yet. But, feel like skin is starting to loose elasticity and firmness. Pls advise if these products are suitable for my skin type and the proper order of usage for all these products. Thank you.

      Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

      The Pore Power Duo along with the Blue Plasma are excellent products to treat your concerns; however, for the loss of elasticity and sagging skin I recommend our High Potency treatments.

      The High Potency Amine Face Lift and High Potency Evening Repair and the Face Finishing Moisturizer would be applied last over both treatments in the AM & PM.

      I hope this is helpful.

I went to sephora due to a skin breakout/rash turned out to be from my birthcontrol. I was given sample of this duo along with blue plasma. i loved sample and decided to order duo here b/c it was cheaper than sephora. After about three weeks my skin is amazing, it glows and is so clear. I dont even have my monthly cycle skin flare ups anymore. It's pricey but totally worth it.

        I use the Power Duo twice a day and I will never be without! I have large pores, redness, sensitive, acne-prone skin. After washing my face with Nutritive Cleanser I use the Intensive Pore Minimizer and let that absorb for a few minutes. Then I apply two pumps of Intensive Pore Treatment. Both products work together to reduce shine, reduce pore size, help with redness, an even help clear my skin! I follow with Cold Plasma then a Perricone moisturizer. This is the perfect daily combination of products for my skin's needs.
        I love Perricone products. They WORK!!!
        You won't be disappointed!

          Comments about Pore Power Duo:

          I'm 58 and have used a 3 step regimen on my face since my late 20's. Obviously, things get more noticeable as we age. I've been experiencing much frustration in the past few years as I was sure you could see my pores from space! Then I tried one or two of Dr. Perricone's products and was very happy with the results. So, when I saw the pore minimizer duo it was a no brainer to try it. Fast forward just one week and I have a newer, smoother, happier face. I'm in LOVE with his line of products & they are all I use on my face and neck.

I have always had enlarged pores I'm so thankful that I used this power duo it really works if it could help my skin I know it could help others. I will not be without this product. I use the neuroptide cleanser in the am and pm. If you want your pores to go away use this product your skin texture will improve the clarity will be better. It works for me.
