The TCA CROSS Technique Works Well For Improving Ice Pick Scars
Unfortunately, in my experience, relatively expensive approaches, such as fraxels and radiofrequency devices, have proven disappointing and appear to be backed far more by device manufacturer marketing hype than hard science. Fillers, too, are generally unsuccessful by themselves for treating narrow pit scars as opposed to their value in improving broader based acne scars, such as boxcar and rolling scars.
Make sure to consult with a board certified aesthetic physician with experience and expertise in all forms of scar treatments. Best of luck to you.
