Alright so when I was in high school i used to get these solid light brown material form between both side of my nose and i was young and stupid and eventually just began pushing them out and eventually led to scaring. I do have acne scars as well but the scars around the sides of my nose and small but noticeable when up in person. So I'm 20 now and I want to get these little dots removed from the sides of my nose but not sure what kind of treatment i should go for to remove them. Below are some pictures and would like some suggestions on how i should proceed before heading to the doctor.

 

Would chemical peeks be able to remove these scars or make them less noticeable?

You have normal/large pores combined with some small boxcar/icepick scarring.

 

Retin-A

Fractional CO2

Skin Needling (dermarolling/dermastamping)

Excisions/Subcision

 

Are your possible options. Personally I would suggest either fractional co2 or skin needling. Chemical peels that can do something carry a lot of risks, and the ones that don't have the risks likely won't do anything for you.

I have the same kind of scars on both of my cheeks and is also looking for a suitable treatment. I went to a dermatologist and was suggested a series of Matrix RF treatments. Will look into Fractional co2 as well and try to find out what the differences are. Those treatments are really expensive so I feel like I really want to make the right decision..

 

And I'm using Retin-A, it's great and has made wonders for my skin. Has improved the dark marks I had on my cheeks and the overall condition of my skin.
