I have a lot of scarred pores on my cheeks and forhead; whenever I look in the mirror it's the first thing I notice. ;_; They are so noticeable during overcast days and I live in a place where it's friggin cloudy all the time.

This is the best I can get out of my cam phone.

Can anyone please recommend treatments. This is all I can ever think about now...

I have been getting microlaser peels done on my scars which seems to be helping quite a bit. I have three major scars that I am more worried about. What you have it what I used to have on one cheek, which has now improved by 90 percent in those areas so they are almost smooth but not quite yet smooth.

I have two suggestions for you:

1) a series of chemical peels (Glycolic or Lactic Acid). Work your way up from a 30% concentration to 40%, from 40% to 50%, and from 50% to 70%. You can buy this stuff from reputable companies on the internet (Ebay.com) and save a TON of cash rather than having a dermatologist or plastic surgeon do this.

2) TCA Cross Method. This method is particular useful for people with "ice pick" scars. The doctor applies a wood applicator with tricholoracetic acid into each of the ice pick scars. The acid leaves a "frosting" effect on the skin and causes the skin to begin to repair itself. Definitely have a doctor do this for you as you could scar your skin further by not doing it properly.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes on your journey to healing.....
