Thanks for posting your query.

Chicken pox scars fade over time.

In order to treat them earlier and effectively, the options available are Lasers or a procedure called Dermaroller. However even with the procedures the scars won't disappear completely; they will only become less apparent.

If you wish to undergo Laser treatment, Erbium laser will be effective. You will need multiple sessions to achieve best/maximum results.

Hope this answers your query. Please let me know if I can address any other concern.
