Ice pick scars and large pores seemingly from Acne
Enlarged pores can pretty much act in the same way as ice pick scars and ice pick scars respond much differently than other acne scars. In my experience acne scars or more in the Superficial layers of the skin. Although acne involves all layers of your skin and it can reach into the deeper layers even above your muscles, there's certain treatments that work with certain types of scars. With ice pick scars you have to create trauma to try to get it to raise up to the rest of levels skin. So there is an answer to try to help ice pick scars and enlarged pores and it's by creating that trauma and we have done this before and have a lot of experience doing that.
Large pores and icepick scarring
There are many treatment options available including: chemical peels, Infini, laser peels, laser resurfacing (Fraxel). A formal evaluation is needed to get the best option for you. Starting on Retin A is also a good topical. It is hard to see if there is need for filler but that can be addressed at the consultation too.
