Fraxel and Restylane are a great combination for the treatment of chickenpox scars.
Fraxel and Restylane are a great combination for the treatment of chickenpox scars. I would do a series of the Fraxel restore laser, try the Fraxel repair (depending on your skin type/pigmentation). These lasers will help smooth the scars. Then you may do filler injections (Restylane, Juvederm, hylaform) to fill in the areas that may still be indented.
Fraxel and/or Fillers for Chicken Pox Scars
Both Fraxel and filler are used to treat chicken pox scar depressions. Radiesse is a great filler for this indication. Either Fraxel re:store or re:pair will help improve the scars. Good luck and be well.
First, I would try laser. Fraxel Restore is my first choice, but I might consider Repair or Total FX (I'd know when I saw you). Restylane or another filler would be second and only to try to improve after the bound-down scar tissue softened by the laser.
