Getting Rid of Acne Scars and Large Pores

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! While we try to stay away from one-size-fit-all solutions in cosmetic medicine and each patient’s needs are specific, the first treatment of choice for acne scars is usually fractional CO2 laser which can greatly improve many types of scars (with exception of deeply pitted and so-called ice pick scars which might need filler injection). As an added bonus, fractional CO2 laser can also improve the tone and texture of skin and can reduce the size of enlarged pores. I hope it helps and good luck!
