Why are Ice Pick Acne Scars So Hard to Treat?
I began suffering from adult acne around age 29 and am now 32 with some improvement due to a combo of low dose doxycycline and Duac. As a result, I now have ice pick scars on my cheeks. I have read some of the posts from the docs regarding treatment and it appears that the only successful treatment is punch excision followed by resurfacing and even this only gives a 30% improvement. Why are these scars so difficult to treat and why hasn't an effective method been developed as of 2011?

Ice pick scars do quite well with punch grafting and a few dermabrasions.
