Pores / scars

I think its a mixture of pores and scars, and I do agree that it is not deep enough for Ice Pick scars. Regardless, my treatment of choice would be TCA CROSS, 2-3 treatments followed by an erbium laser peel. 

This combination should improve things by up to 90%

Pores or ice pick scars?

They look like scars in the pores. Not deep enough for ice pick. Many techniques would help. Subscision, tca cross, Microneddling, Fraxel with or without topical sculptra and fillers.
Hope this helps.
