What type of scar is this and how can I treat it? (photo)

hey I start growing this type of scar within a year and suffers from large pores. I have tried microneedling once but do not see improvement but worse. What else can I try? Thanks!

It takes more than one microneedling session to improve a scar – particularly if you are trying it yourself. Scars demand a combination approach, including lasers. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
