Scar improvement.

Thank you for posting your photo. Since your chicken pox scar is over one year old, it is unlikely to improve on its own or with topical therapies. Microneedling, fractionated laser, and radiofrequency devices make microscopic holes in the scar to stimulate your body to remodel and fill in the scar with new collagen and help blend the scar with the surrounding skin. If the scar is domed and thick, another option is a surgical excision to exchange the scar for a thin line. Unfortunately, nothing can completely remove a scar but scars can be made less noticeable in size, color, and depth. For the best treatment options, it is important to visit an expert for an in-person examination. Hope this helps!
