I have heard about this particular treatment for chicken pox scars. What are the results like? Are there any before and after pictures? Thanks in advance


We don’t have before and after pictures for chicken pox scars in particular, however, it is a good treatment to help to reorganise scar tissue and to help to improve the topography of the scar. it usually takes a few sessions to get the best result. Another good treatment we have found for chicken pox scars is subcision. This involves undermining the scar with a specialised needle to help remove the scar from its underlying attachments and raise it to the level of the normal skin.
