As per your query you have symptoms of chicken pox scars on the face which is known as atrophic scars. Need not to worry. Treatment will depend upon the severity of scar and indentations. I would suggest you apply a moisturizer with vitamin E and apply turmeric powder mix with honey for 15 minutes daily and then wash it. If the scars and pits are severe and do not go away with the above method then consult a dermatologist for proper clinical evaluation. The doctor may recommend a cosmetic procedure or laser therapy. Aloe Vera extracts directly onto the pitted scar.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
