ice pick scars ruining my life need help?

I'm 16 and have had acne for about 3 years and I still have acne but now I have lots of ice pick scars on both cheeks...I'm starting to lose friends including my best friend, I avoid talking to girls, I quit my job as a cashier, and havnt had a girlfriend since my scars showed up....I want to eventually try a surgery but right now I'm too young. Is there anything I can do to improve my ice pick scars. Also does dan's regimen thing work? oh and what's the best surgery for ice pick scars?

wow dude, im on the same boat as you. I quit my job as a cashieer because im so embarassed of my scars. but im not losing my friends tho. If theyre gunna leave you because of your appearance then they werent real friends at all. but yeah i have lots of ice picks on my temple area. im looking into needling or cross tca (arent they the same?) well yeah def dont waist your money on cooltouch because ive done 3 treatments and it didnt help at all.

are you loosing friednds beucase

1) they dont like your skin so they dont wanna be your friends anymore

or are you loosing them becuase

2) you are letting your skin make you become unfriendly and stoping you going out and socialising with them

my guess is that it is number 2. everyone will loose friends if they stop talking to them or just dont hang oout with them etc. i know this coz i used to do the same thing. have they told you that your skin is bad. from personal expereicne - once i realized my skin wasnt the reason i was loosing freinds but it was my actions, (as a result of me THINKING the appearance of my skin was so imporntat to other people - which it is not) i began making loads of freinds. i have had 2 HOT girlfriedns who i thought were way out of my league within the last 3 months. im not trying act like a player im just tryna get you to realise other people do not think that the appearance of your skin is as important as you think it is (if that even makes sence lol)

sos bout all thetyping errors im kinda in a rush - hop it all makes sence lol

I know how it throws you out of life- it sucks. Somedays I pretend to be sick because I don't have the energy to spend the almost 2 hrs applying concealer and make-up just so I can look human. I do think you should do accutane- my friends that have done it get not only smoother skin, but smaller pores which softens the appearance of the icepicks. I so wish I had done it, I'm clear now, but left with the battle scars. After you get clear, then you can start working on the scars like the rest of us. Chin up- you are not DONE yet, you are still evolving(:
