Chicken pox scars might be difficult to treat, so it's best to see an expert physician to determine the best treatment option. Depending on your individual case, you may be a good candidate for excision followed by laser therapy or serial subcision along with laser therapy and filler.
What is the best way to remove chicken pox scars?
Any time the skin is cut or injured, a scar will result. However, there are several ways to improve a scar. If your chicken pox scars are putted scars, it is possible to improve them by using a punch biopsy to remove them. You will trade in a pitted scar for a small linear scar, instead. The eye is drawn to a pitted scar and a small linear scar will be less obvious. Additionally, a skin resurfacing procedure may yield further improvement.
