Q.

How do I get rid of the mild to moderate acne scarring and large pores on my forehead?

I am 25, have an olive skin tone, an oily/combination complexion, and seem to scar more easily. I have some acne scarring on my forehead, and also large pores (which turn into blackheads) all over my forehead. I have a pretty decent skin care regimen, never had real acne, but do have issues with small pimple-type bumps on my chin (not whiteheads, not large, not painful, maybe cystic?). I don't want my scarring to get worse, and want to minimize my pores.

Acne scars will fade with age, however, you can make them fade faster with laser treatment.  Talk to your dermatologist about it.  As for the small pimple-type bumps, your dermatologist could prescribe you a topical cream.
