Help Acne Scars......

Hey everyone I've got these acne scars on my nose for about a year please help me clear them up...

My skin is oily

I'm 16 

And I use facewash 2 times a day

I tired retinol for about 3/4 months but it didn't help with the scars.

@OofOver9000 Hi there, ... The nose is a very very hard place to treat.The nose is cartilage like the ear, and less like skin. It typically does not heal well. A bit of subcision, but this looks like it won't react the best to that but worth trying.  I can't tell from the pic if it's hypertrophic if it is they may inject it with steriod to flatten the border.

A Surgeon/Plastic Surgeon doing surgical scar revision or punch excision. Laser resurfacing, especially paying attention to the walls of the scar. At 16 you will heal some on your own, as your young. 

I would see a procedural dermatologist aka aesthetics Dr.
