What size scars are suitable for excision?

So I've been doing needling and Tazorac for a while now and it has helped a lot with the shallower rolling scars, however the few deeper scars I have haven't responded as well. I'm not sure if the scars are icepick or boxcar scars, but a couple of them are about a fifth of an inch long and very narrow, they look a bit like slits (not sure why they healed this way). Are these suitable for excision, or is excision only for tiny icepicks? Also if anyone knows a good excision doctor in the NJ/NYC area, please tell me!

Thanks.
