How can I get rid of huge open pores on nose & a scar on my cheek from picking a freckle off? (Photo)

Hello, I have sensitive pale asian skin. Due to squeezing blackheads out during adolescence, I have accumulated what I think is known as "strawberry nose"(?) where my pores have become quite large and get filled with excess sebum. I would like to know if there are any treatments that could close or reduce the size of my pores? I also recently pick out a freckle on my cheek leaving a gouge and scarred skin. Having applied aloe vera, is there anything else I could do to prevent scarring?

Plato's Scar Serum and fractional laser for your freckle scar

I would apply Plato's Scar Serum, followed by a combination of fractional laser, ematrix RF, fillers, and skin resurfacing.

Skin Texture/Scar/Large Pores Improvement -- Clear + Brilliant or Viva, Eclipse Micropen, PRP, Skin Care, Fillers

To improve the skin's texture and reduce facial scarring, you will need a combination of botox, fillers, lasers/RF, microneedling/PRP and skin care to get improvement. Please see a cosmetic dermatologist with experience in lasers and fillers.  Best, Dr. Emer.
