First, it appears that you're still not completely healed. You should wait for about a month before jumping to any conclusion. Also you usually look worse before looking better from the treatment.

Second, RF devices do not work well for icepick scars. For those, you're better off using TCA cross. Once the deep pits are filled, then you can run the RF on the whole face.

Give this time, use the same lighting, change nothing in your skin care that may cause oedema or swelling to make pores worse, label the before and after, repost in 8 weeks when collagen starts to form. From there the other much more experienced mod. Will guide you according. All the best Obi Wan
