Creams and Bleaching Treatments for Chicken Pox Scars?

I am 24 years old and I have scars on my legs from chicken pox. They are light, but still visibile. What cream can I use or bleaching treatments to get rid of them completely? I have had them since I was 16 years old. Please help.

Creams or bleachig agents are not likely to be of any benefit for chicken pox scars unless they are dark or pigmented. These can be difficult to treat. Often times dermabrasion or resurfacing techniques are used but these are typically reserved for the face.
