I am certainly not against lasers. The problem with any method (a method that actually works) is that a few will get wonderful results, many will get good results, many will get no results and a few will get disastrous results.
 
For example, tens of thousands of people underwent IPL treatment without any effect on their pores and this unfortunate lady ended up with permanently dilated pores after an IPL treatment:

Of course certain methods have a much higher percentage of bad cases. For example, radiofrequency on the face resulted in many cases with an even more wrinkly
face due to diminished fat and the original method was more or less abandoned.
 
I will answer your other questions later.

I suggest buying a 1 mm dermastamp (not a dermaroller) and trying it for many months on one small area of the skin to see whether the thermal damage will improve and how the skin reacts to it.
