Since you have had chicken pox recently the scars will settle down gradually.Its best to wait for 6 months before taking any surgical treatment .Most scars take 6 moths to about a year to settel down.The scars tend to darken from 2-3 rd month and then gradually become lighter in colour on their own

The rash has different texture, color and morphology in chicken pox.Initially, it will be a red spot, next a blister (vesicle), and finally a scab. You may have "old" spots that are healing and "new" spots that are just beginning to blister. Your rash will probably itch. In fact, your skin may begin to itch before you notice the rash. After your lesions have healed, you may notice "red spots." These spots are not scars and will fade within a few weeks. So you need not fear about it. If you have any concerns please do see your nearest dermatologist for an expert opinion
