The marks left after chickenpox can be just pigmentation or scar marks. If just pigmentation use kojic cream twice daily over the areas . use a sunscreen over the face after applying the cream during day time. If they are scar marks i.e depressed lesions subscision followed by microdermabrasion or dermaroller has to be done. No cream works on these scars.
The recent studies on dark circles have confirmed it to be due to decreased blood circulation. Use ega cream once at night. just apply dont rub vigorously

Dear swthunky.madd4nab, welcome to hcm.
the marks due to chicken pox usually disappear after a certain period of time without any interventions as such. the dark circles may be because ur poorly nourished or sometimes seen if ur using spectacles since a time.
Its my humble request you to stop worrying about them and concentrate on ur fresh fruits, vegetables intake and also check on ur level of active schedule. wash ur face with mild face wash and hav a nutritious diet.
thank u. God bless You:-)
