I have shallow acne scars spread across the face after chicken pox?

Age 24. It had almost flawless skin. Then chicken pox happened. Now there are shallow marks all over the face where chicken pox bristles were previously. What should I do?

Chicken pox scars

Photos would really be helpful.  But, in generally, superficial scars can benefit from topical retinoids, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, fillers and lasers.  Please seeks treatment from a qualified professional.  Good luck!

Without a photo it may be difficult to comment but generally a combination of fillers and lasers such as eMatrix should help fill these scars and promote new collagen.  Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr. Green
