Dear Patient,
Yes chicken pox scars can be reduced substantially (70-80%).Normally it requires multiple (3-4) sittings of frextional Laser by an expert.Each sitting for will cost you 4000 Rs.Microderma will not help for chicken pox scars.If you wish you can send your photographs on our clinic mail( & there after you can consult to me over phone (0261-6458426).

some of the scars after chicken pox are deep involving dermis, which normally does not go spontaneously, if the scars over the face are pretty big and deep you can undergo radioablation or microdermal abrations, which are done at few cosmetic or dermatology clinic like KAYA clinic, consult dermatologist with fellowship in cosmetic surgery, cost may vary from 50000-60000
good luck
