Atrophic chicken pox scars usually respond well to a combination of ematrix RF, fractional lasers, fillers, and subcision.

These are quite difficult to improve, but can get some good improvement with subcision and bellafill filler injections and/or combining lasers. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with experience in scar treatments. Best, Dr. Emer.
