​What treatment can remove childhood chicken pox scars?

It lightens over time but still quite visible on my legs since my complexion is brown and the spots appear more darker. Help, how can i get rid of those? What treatment? Is laser a last resort? Or is there a cream to be applied?

Getting rid of chicken pox scars

Chicken pox scars can have different appearances. Depending on the nature of your scar, laser treatment or excision are the mainstays of therapy. Creams are unlikely to be helpful. Best to have your scars assessed by your dermatologist for a realistic treatment plan and discussion.
