Atrophic Scars caused by chicken pox

Recommended Posts



I’ve had atrophic scarring from since I was a child due to chickenpox. 

im just enquiring if there are any treatments that I could get that will permanently remove them. Unfortunately the bulk of my scars are on my face. I think I may also be prone to hyperpigmentation so this is something I’d need to take into consideration when choosing treatments.


what would be my best option?

Look into TCA Cross for the narrow boxcar scars. When the skin is more level, you can consider lasers. 

Cheaper alternatives are TCA peels and microneedling, although you might get the most modest of results - if at all.
