Ice pick scarring and  few enlarged pores

TCA cross on them. U can do a punch excision or elevation in the big/deeper ice pick scarring but i would go for atleast 4/5 TCA cross sessions spaced in 4-8 weeks depending on percentage (50-100) before jumping into a punch procedure.

I want you to know that your skin is very good overall and you only have a single scarring, probably nobody will ever notice your scarring and it will not affect your look because its very minimal, but if you want to try improving it u should do your own research about the listed methods and wait for BA opinions also.

good luck

@AcneSuffer9 Let me see if I can digest this. Things at home will not fade these scar(s). When you use the word "Fade," are you talking about discoloration. Because scars don't fade they are permanent. You did not say what things at home so I can only wonder on that one. Why did you not see a Dr if you were suffering. 

De Rerum Natura, basically helped you here, we are in agreement you need Dr's based treatments. 

** Please Note I offer to acne scar suffers a "more" "customized" (private) consultation than the above general advice. Analysis, answering questions, ongoing support by Private Messaging. Feel free to message me there. Be patient as I can get over 100+ of the worst acne scar cases to help, it "may" take me up to 48 hours to respond.

Checkout the main scar treatments sub, find the FAQ pinned on top there, goto the bottom, there are Dr's or call around and ask who does cannula subcision or nokor subcision (needle type) to dermatologists and or plastic surgeons, consult a few before you decide who you like, even if you have to pay as treatment is expensive, better like them. Ask how many subcisions they do a month and if they treat your skin type. If they just do laser run they will just blast you and not solve your issue.
