Deep scars from acne, small pox, or chicken pox

These scars are reddish in color and also have visible depressions. I would begin treatment in my LA office by first treating with pulsed dye laser, followed by fractional co2 laser skin resurfacing.

Chicken Pox Scars

Hi Kulvir.  You should consider laser resurfacing for the indentations caused by the chicken pox or acne.  We would suggest you consider:

Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Traditional Erbium Resurfacing

Traditional CO2 Resurfacing

The choice depends on your budget and skin type.  Good luck.
