I didn't mean to scare anyone! I actually got the hint from this thread: http://www.acne.org/...48#entry1460148Although I didn't realize until after reviewing it that it was a wood polishing pad, not the same as sandpaper. The scarred pores have not improved with any other technique I've tried, including topicals, they're huge and obvious. I've heard that even laser treatments provide minimal improvement for this, which makes sense since scarred pores are more superficial than acne scars. That's why I didn't try it on the scars on my cheeks.I think my mental health is ok, thanks for asking lol. After having scars for years, though, and not having the $ to try something more effective under the hands of a doctor, I got kind of desperate. Honestly, derma rollers scares me more than sandpaper.

Honestly, I definitely saw improvement. The pores are smaller on my nose, but still enlarged. But I don't want to encourage anyone to try this for themselves if they read this thread, so I'm erasing what I can. Very, very stupid of me. It's actually embarrassing reading over this thread now that I'm older.
If you're looking for results, I found that peels combined with collagen builders like vitamin C or copper peptides to be the best alternative. TCA peels combined with Super CP Serum helped reduce the size of my pores in general.
Also, if you have oily skin, this sometimes cause your pores to be larger. If you do something to help reduce the amount of oil your skin produces, this could help.
Keeping your pores clear will also help the pores look smaller. Try a retinoid or peels.
And I disagree with my earlier feelings about dermarolling, I think it might help with reducing pore size.
