What should I do about chicken pox scars I've had for 18 years that won't go away even after some treatments? (Photo)

Hi, I'm 20 years old. I have several very deep chicken pox scars on my forehead. I got chicken pox when I was 2 years old. I got 2 treatments profractional 4 years ago. There were few changes, but scars are still very noticeable. Then, 2 years ago, I got a injection of Restylane. There were few changes, but nothing spectacular. I have two treatments Profractional planned in January and March, but I'm asking myself if all of this is just a waste of money and time.

I recommend a combination approach for treatment. I recommend lasers, subcision and fillers. It will take a series of treatments. See an expert in facial scarring for best outcomes. Best, Dr. Emer
