Marks due to chickenpox

Dear Doctor, I have recently recovered from Chickenpox. Now there are a lots of marks on my face (infant entire body). Some are really deep. I am currently applying AloeDerma lotion and cream. Also some home remedies like oats+turmeric mask, coconut water etc. Please suggest the needful. Because its been a week, I have recovered but even if applying above mention products there is not much difference on my facial scars/marks. Therefore, I request you to suggest what is necessary in my case. Thank you very much for answering.

hi, I would consider few options for your scars. chemical peel with TCA or fractionated laser resurfacing which will help perhaps 40-60% in improving the appearance of the scars, though they will temporarily give you some hyperpigmentation in the treated area which can be addressed with fading creams. The other option would be some punch or other excisions. good luck
