Pores developing into permanent pock marks

I'm using the word pock mark because i don't know any other way to describe these little indentations that are forming on my face. I've begun to notice over time that some of my pores have slowly gotten larger to the point where they dont even look like pores anymore, but little pock marks. I know that these marks can form when you pick at pimples but im not picking on anything they just form randomly. I'm beginning to notice a lot more of my pores becoming deeper and wider and I want to know if there is any thing i can do before they become permanently indented like the others.

Hi,

Pore size, skin tone, acne, comedones...these have for some degree hold a genetic component with them.There is no direct cure or treatment for enlarged or enlarging pores. However, a visit to your dermatogist for a discussion regarding microdermabrasion and laser therapy may shed some insight on the use of new technologies for treating your condition.

Where there any previous bouts of acne before?

Does anyone in the family experience the same condition?

I'm 18 and I never really had acne. I get a few pimples here and there. This is why I'm confused why some of my pores are just randomly developing into these marks. Theres only a few, maybe 5 or 6 of them and they're pretty small so i'm not terribly worried, I just don't want more to pop up.

thanks
