Hi ! im 16 and i have a problem dealing with my already existing chciken pox scars. As a teen things like this affects my self esteem and somehow prevents me from doing things that i used to do. Please can u tell me if there's any safe Derm treatment rather than using unknown solvents. Are laser scar treatments safe and plausible for teens?
Scar marks due to Chicken pox are commonly seen. However, the intensity and spread of these marks may vary. The treatment options are therefore dependent on these factors.
Topical applications and cosmetic treatments are available for this. They may also be available OTC for some users. However, professional advise may be needed in some cases depending on extent of lesions.
Some of these include, appplications such as collagen, microdermabrasion etc..

Scarring often occurs after chickenpox, especially in older children and adults. The scars are round and “punched-out” in appearance, and are commonly called pock marks. Most pock marks come from spots that were not picked or scratched, and mild cases of chickenpox cause pock marks as often as more severe cases.
To treat chicken pox scars skin specialists first reduce underlying fibrous adhesions and later either perform a dermal filler or stimulate new collagen growth with Non Ablative Laser Rejuvenation.
It is also important to understand that the skin has its own repair mechanism and gradually the repair would bring significant change. At the same time, medications have their limitations and there is a limit to which they can benefit.
There are other options available, and you could discuss them in detail with your doctor.
