Chicken pox scars might be difficult to treat, so it's best to see an expert physician to determine the best treatment option. Depending on your individual case, you may be a good candidate for excision followed by laser therapy or serial subcision along with laser therapy and filler.
Any time the skin is cut or injured, a scar will result. However, there are several ways to improve a scar. If your chicken pox scars are putted scars, it is possible to improve them by using a punch biopsy to remove them. You will trade in a pitted scar for a small linear scar, instead. The eye is drawn to a pitted scar and a small linear scar will be less obvious. Additionally, a skin resurfacing procedure may yield further improvement.
Combination treatment with subcision and fractional co2 can help improve chicken pox scars on the face and body.
