I have some on my chest, they're pretty much invisible unless theres good lighting and your face if right up against my chest (reserved for select people). My chest hair mostly covers the few that are scattered here and there, so I never really bothered to treat them.

I actually have much larger chicken pox scars scattered around my body, but they are white and not terribly noticeable either.

If you click on my name and go to my page. You'll see a post "what kind of scars are these" and a picture I posted. Is this what you mean? I found out... after a lot of research.. .they are either "perifollicular elastolysis" or "Atrophic macules" I forget which.

I've never seen a treatment that handles them. I've never seen a before or after treatment picture with the, As far as I can tell they are permanent.

Mine are not invisible.
