Punch excision with suturing for ice-pick scars
While this is one effective way to treat ice-pick scars, please consider the more conservative TCA-Cross method involving topical application of 80-100% trichloracetic acid solution which can also be quite effective. If punch excision is done, usually some kind of re-surfacing procedure should follow.
