Acne Scars...Picked a Pimple...How to Get Rid of It?

ok... i admit it... i picked on a pimple during high school and now there is a scar

it's on my nose and it's rather deep... it's not a scar that's just on top of the skin... it's an actual hole...

i don't know how i can get rid of it... i know it depends and it's very difficult to get rid of ... esp since it's on my nose...

but do you have any suggestions?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You would need plastic surgery consultation.
Laser therapy and cryotherapy are other options.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
