Ice pick scars are difficult to treat in any skin color.  However, there are options including Melaquin creams to even color, TCA cross, and subcision acne surgery. Surgery90210

These are the two best options deep chemical peeling with TCA or Laser excision. This is then followed by a multilayered approach.
