Both lasers are helpful, the difference is that the Fraxel CO2 re:pair will probably just take 1 treatment while the Fraxel re:store will take 3 to 5 treatments. The Fraxel CO2 re:pair will also have more oozing and redness for 3-14 days while the scar after using the Fraxel re:store will probably not look that noticable after each treatment.
Is Fraxel Re:pair or Re:store Recommended for Chicken Pox Scars?

Both lasers may help treat chicken pox scars
Both. There is an ongoing improvement with Fraxel Restore with each new treatment. Fraxel Repair can help too, but it is a one time treatment. Neither will make it go away completely. Some scars need to be lifted or surgically revised by excision (cutting out) prior to the laser resurfacing.
Fraxel re:pair Laser Treatment for Chicken Pox Scars
Fraxel re:pair laser is effective at treating scars, including those caused by chicken pox. The treatment may involve a series of 2 to 3 treatments depending upon the response to the laser. Good luck and be well.
