Hi all,
Was wondering if these are icepick scars or scarred enlarged pores. I have a few ice pick scars however, but the
Rest I think are scarred pores. The picture doesn't really show justice. Just want to know if there scarred pores. I have had 2 laser treatments (1540) with improvement, if they are scarred pores will I see great results on my 5th treatment?

I see mostly shallow ice-pick scars. I get a little confused when people talk about scarred pores as to me that is ice-pick scarring. In your opinion, what is the difference?

What kind of laser are you having and what kind of improvements have you noticed? I say go for it and have your 5 treatments! If at the end of that you're not 100% happy I would continue the search for another treatment. I think it's always good to have other options to treat scarring. Multi-modality works best. :) There is something relatively new that I've read good things about, especially to those suffering from ice-pick scars. It's called Airgent. Worth researching.

I wish you all the best!
