chicken pox scars

Recommended Posts

I am wondering how to get rid of this scar which I have on my right side of nose. I have had this scar right from childhood. It did not bother me till now, but now that I meet so many people due to my work, it is getting on my nerves.

Some advice on how to get rid of it will be useful.

I am open to any surgery as well. Please see image of my scar attached with this topic.

That is a deep enough scar to get excised but you have to be careful with excision, if done wrong it could end up looking worse. but it's when a dr. cuts out the scar and stitches it back up leaving you with a linear scar which in the end is still a scar but not and indented pock mark.

i'm not sure anything else would work on that deep of a scar.

Excision sounds like it would work, ask a plastic surgeon about it.

There are lots of other options too:

You can try Needling, TCA Cross, Dermal grafting(sp) (collagen transplant), fillers.
