As said in the question, I have a hyper pigmented chicken pox scar on my nose, and it really does affect my confidence. It is over 10 years old. Also I am Indian if that is a factor. Are there any treatment/removal options in Sydney, Australia?

Melarase and surgical scar revision for nasal chicken pox scar
Hyperpigmentation can be treated with Melarase cream or another option is surgical excision of the scar, much like an unwanted mole, with layered closure.
