I have deep scar acne ice pick.
What the best treatment  
PRP or laser co2?

Depends: If it's a single scar that you want to get rid of, I would recommend needle subscision followed by a laser treatment (I like laser genesis for scars). If you have a lot of scars, laser resurfacing works well. PRP can also have really nice results, great combined with micro needling, less cost than laser usually. Fat transfer can fill in deep scars and also help to remodel the scar as well. ...Read more

Nose: Depending on the location and the pattern of scars, excision may be an option but will leave a scar. TCA depending on what strength may or may not penetrate deep enough. Derma rolling is not something I am aware of or would recommend. ...Read more

Acne scars: For deep ice pick scars, the best treatment is excision and suture closure. For more superficial scars, sometimes the scars can be released and fat injected deep to the scar. Frequently the surface can then be improved with laser resurfacing. ...Read more

I have  large pores all over my face, ice pick scars on my cheeks. I've tried many products but nothing seems to work. What can I do?

See long answer: There are some procedures that help enlarged pores (many of which are acne scars) and ice pick scars such as fraxel and pro fractional lasers as well as cross tca treatment. It's really important to get the acne under control to prevent further scar formation. Clarisonic brush is nice for keeping pores clean. Retinoids and Alpha hydroxy acids and clay masks will also help. ...Read more

Can i use hexilak gel for ice pick and box car scars ?

Can i use hexilak gel for ice pick and box car scars ?

Depends: If the scar is excessive it might help. A study showed some benefit, but the size of the study was small: only 30 people. That is not enough to give a statistically significant result really. It may be worth a try. If the scar is flat already, it won't do much. It helps with keloids or hypertrophic scarring (exaggerated scar formation) See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2918339/ ...Read more
